    I would like to be the first to put the members gun memories/experiences to work with Name My Gun and provide as much info as you can, such as year(s) manufactured, country of origin, caliber etc. Sorry for the poor picture quality, my camera is about as old as the old gun.

    A few hints; Pre 1897, single shot, fires 'bb caps' or 'cb caps', and the estimated value is $125.00.

    100% Correct. The weapon is a good conversation piece but not worth much. This one was produced in the mid to late 1880's and was last fired by me this past summer.

    Belgium. They were called parlor guns and used for indoor shooting. There were also Flobert rifles and larger caliber handguns that are more collectible and more valuable. Flobert subcontracted the production of the weapons out to individual gunsmiths through out Belgium and not just one production facility making it next to impossible to find the town/city of origin...The period this gun was produced, mid to late 1800, many weapons were being produced in Liege Belgium but I found no record of the Flobert. Again, it is a good 115 year old conversation piece....

    I like old guns, but to tell the truth I just saw one at a antique gun show a few months ago.

    Looks like the Russian/Soviet PPSh-41 in 7.62X25mm Tokarev pistol cal. Also licensed to Chinese as a Chinese 50. WWII for the Russians. Korean War for the Chinese model and Vietnam.

    I had an Italian copy in .22 cal a few months back if that is what it is.

    I don't think so, the heatshield on the 41 has rectangular cooling holes and was drum fed and it is not a PP34, again wrong style heatshield and stock. This will take some research.

    It's not an H&R Riesing .45 cal cause it didn't have a heat shield and ejection port on right side IIRC.

    Japanese Type 100 in 8X22mm Nambu? Nope, it has a curved box mag.

    I'm stumped!!!!

    Hey, I know why we can't identify it, it has a left side ejection port and two triggers. Made for a lefty and one trigger for semi auto and the other for full auto.;) The two triggers should help in identifying it.

    Okay, I gave you guys plenty of time to answer. It is a Beretta Model 38/ A44 9mm Submachine Gun and is also a very rare model because only 200 were produced with double triggers. :D
