    When I was in High School my uncle gave me this old 5 shot revolver.
    The side is marked "CAL .320" and on the top of the barrel is stamped "PUPPY".
    I think my uncle might of brought it back fron Europe during WWII.
    Online I can find some info on a ".320 revolver" shell but nothing on this gun.
    Any ideas what I might have?? It looks neat on the mantle next to my old
    damascus side by side.

    This is my first attempt at a photo...hope it works!!
    Joe

    The gun is a "PUPPY" made by E. Bernard and Cie of Liege. Take a look under the feft grip and see if there is a FM. If so it was made by Francotte and May. HMB

    Thanks Jack and HMB...Nope there isnt a FM under the grip so it must of been
    made someware else. Its double action only even thou it has a hammer spur.
    It would be interesting to know the ballistics of the .320 cartridge.
