    Stopped at a local gun shop and noticed this in the display. They couldnt identify the gun. There is an engraved name on top but it wasnt legible. I couldnt find any serial or model numbers either. I was wondering if anybody could identify this by site. It looks to be .22 caliber but thats only a guess.

    It has the general look of a Khyber copy - does it have a falling action or what?

    It appears to be German, and it looks like there are proof marks along the right side of the chamber; if you can get some close-ups of those, and of any of the marking along the top, it'll be helpful, but without them, anything would just be a wild guess.

    It does look like a Khyber Pass pistol made in Pakistan by the KHYBER Arms Company.

    The ticket says Firearm Repair Order. I wonder what were they repairing?

    Double set triggers, looks like German proof marks, barrel profile with octagon muzzle as popular pre WW I. I think it is a European target pistol of peculiar design, probably not identifiable or traceable if the maker's mark is not legible.

    Nice St. Christopher Medal and pearls.

    The pistol definitely looks German or Austrian, particularly with the octagonal barrel segment -- typical German styling -- and the grip shape (more Austrian).

    heres a closer look at the other side. I will stop by and inquire about the repair ticket.

    Definitely German proof marks to the left of the "527", both "B" for foreign guns proofed once, and "U" for second proof and examination, each with crowns. Could be a Belgian or Austrian gun taken into a German proofhouse.

    The proof series to the right of the "527" is a little too blurred to recognize, though the proofs look like they could be Austrian (or several others).

    The Crown B is the proof mark; the Crown U indicates the proof was done with the barrel in finished condition (which could mean a foreign made gun but not necessarily.

    I have never seen anything like it.

    Thanks to all for the replies. I will try to get some better pics soon. Where could I get the gun identified if all the pics arent conclusive for ID?

    It has the look of one of a kind. Something a master gunsmith would work on as a past time. It really does not look like any type of production firearm.
