8mm with 2" octagonal-to-round barrel. Blued and nickel finish. Bottom barrel flat and ring trigger marked with a sideways 1 and the number 99. The left barrel flat marked with the serial number 017. The lower left of the grip is marked MADE IN ITALY. Unique late 19th century Italian designed, magazine fed, squeeze cocking palm pistol that relies upon the action of squeezing the projecting ring to operate the action, load a round into the chamber and fire the pistol1
Very fine overall retaining the majority of the original blue, with some fading and loss on the frame, and even more original nickel. Some minor oxidized flecking present on the barrel. Mechanically functional, very good bore. A wonderful example of a scarce firearms curiosa palm pistol.
