    Bought a cheap EIG Italy long rifle in .45. I'm pretty sure that EIG was the importer and I'm trying to figure out who the maker was. It has the standard Italy proof marks and a XXV date. The bore really shines. It looks like chrome.

    The only mark that might be the maker is this one. Any ideas?

    Over at one of the replica collector's sights they meantion revolvers from EIG and FIE with the GLB mark but they do not identify that maker.

    I don't know. It has me baffled. It seems like I've seen that same mark on some cheap brass framed revolvers on the grip.

    It stands for Luciano Giacosa of Brescia, that evolved into Euromanuarms that supposedly evolved into Pietta

    Fingers, I think you're the winner! I googled it and came up with quite a bit of info (albeit most of it in Italian:what:).

    Apparently they made quite a few lower end cartridge revolvers, and black powder revolvers.

    Good info. You learn something new every day.
