I'm working on a database of still surviving guns, parts, and accessories of the Model 1920 Fiala Arms & Equipment Co. Model 1920, magasine-fed, single-shot .22rf pistol. This gun was available with different barrels, etc., up to the 3-barrel set with hard fitted carrying case - and/or a canvas carrying case. Guns were manufactured in New Haven, CT.

There are no known surviving company records so we can only learn from still existing specimens. Best guess is that possibly as many as 9,000 may have been produced, and may bear the name of any one of the various companies which took over ownership of Fiala during the short period of time they were produced.

Below is a vintage line drawing illustrations from a company brochure, showing the items available.

When submitting info, fairly detailed description of the gun would be of great help, but the main thing needed is the serial number. Thanks in advance for any help. Best regards, ~ ~ ~ 45Broomhandle
