    Can you guys identify this pistol? All we know is it's been in the family since before 1890 and it appears to be .44 caliber.

    Looks like one of any number of Belgian 'boot pistols'.

    No proofs or marks at all?

    My brother can't find any. I'll ask again and have him use a magnifying glass. I'm pretty sure somewhere along the line it's been refinished once or twice.

    There's a U on the trigger.
    Is this pistol missing the wooden forestock?
    I'll ask him to remove the grips.
