I am working at the shop today and a guy brought in this old pistol. No one here has any idea what it is and neither does the owner. Thought maybe someone here might. It has been demilled with a barrel obstruction of some sort. Any help is appreciated. Here it is.....

There are no markings of any kind on it.

Reminds me of a Nagant.

Someone did some chopping however.

There are a few old European revolvers with the open top and ring trigger that this revolver has, but the ones I can find photos of are not exact matches. This one looks to have been modified, with, among other things, possibly an ejector rod removed. The large gap at the rear of the cylinder also suggests that something might have been removed. I wouldn't think it would have much value in its current condition, but who knows? It certainly is interesting.

As in someone brought it over from England or that it was manufactured in England?
Brought it over. Holes in cylinder are smaller than anything I have ever seen. Here is a pick of measurements

Looks like a Webley design.

Does the hammer look like it would strike a center primer or would it slap the top of a pinfire cartridge?

N/M, your new picture answered that question.

Thanks. Now I'm going to have nightmares.

Looks like somebody hand made it with an old file and a claw hammer. I like the way the .17 caliber cylinder matches up to the .38 caliber barrel. :ROFLMAO:

That's the kind of thing you see in a display case in a prison warden's office.

That's a crude piece. Somehow the barrel looks to be about .38 caliber, but the little cartridges are .17? Not really made to actually hit anything, but just go bang. That may date to the old "cottage industry" days of yore.
