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!!

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.
