I found this in an attic one day in an abandoned house burried under a bunch of old comics and baseball cards, and a bunch of pre-war Colts and winchesters in their original boxes, jk.

I actually got this in a trade it was just thrown in, it is a neat little gun but I have no idea of the story behind it, Maker, age, value. it is a tiny little thing it does have a fold down trigger, no name on it just a few wierd stamped markings, Any info would be helpful, thanks

Looks like one of those Velodog revolvers. They were made to protect bicyclists from dogs back in late 1800's - early 1900's. I'm looking for one, by the way.

Good call nick...!

This the closest pic I could find; a variation of the same.

Also Spelled 'Velo Dog'

If it's Belgian or German, $150-300. It does look Belgian though. The Spanish ones seem to be cheaper, around $100-150. Haven't see any British ones outside of the books.

There was a nice, small piece about these in American Rifleman within the last year or so.

Nice find!
