I recently acquired this gun from my grandfathers estate. My father who is nearly ninety, said my grandfather used this pistol for rabbit hunting. It is in good condition, the serial number is T2219. The action is solid and tight. I have tried to look for the manufacturing date but have had no luck. I know my grandfather has been dead for at least thirty years so the pistol goes back at least to the sixties. Seems like a nice pistol, I honestly don't know much about it.
