I have a small revolver that I cannot identify. It has a folding trigger and looks like a .25 caliber. There is a 4 digit number and the word "Spain" on the bottom of the grip frame. "Marca Registrada" around a bull on each of the grips and the left side of the gun. I can find no other marks or stamps on the revolver.

Here are a few pictures:

The grips apparantly have shrunk over the years and overall the gun is not in great condition. But, not knowing how old it is or what use it may have had, I cannot say that is it is better or worse than revolvers of the same period.

When you pull the trigger the cylinder rotates but the firing pin does not go forward. I have no idea what the hammer design so I am a little reluctant to start taking it apart.

Any information or ideas would be appreciated.

It looks like a velodog revolver to me, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velo-dog
Have a look around www.littlegun.be it's generally the best resource on european pistols.
