I am assuming this (http://i13.tinypic.com/2ns3qkz.jpg) is a curio and relic.

This was brought back from Europe by a GI returning after WWII. Italy maybe. It seems to chamber a very short .22 cartridge of some kind, but nothing readily available.

Any ideas what this might be?

Thanks

It looks like an old blackpowder pistol to me.

that "very short .22..." would probably be a cap used to touch off the black powder charge that is poured down the muzzle.

The bore seems to be .22 all the way through and appears to have rifling.
