    No markings, numbers. It looks to be a .22 single shot. Closest I found is a Flobert or German target pistol. Came from my grandfather who was a WWII vet

    What unit did your grandfather serve in? If you can track down the route he followed in the ETO you might get a clue about where this pistol was picked up. Also talk to any relatives who may have discussed the firearm with him...he may have passed along good info that can help out with identification.

    Might also peruse the antique firearms on Gunbroker.

    I don't know much. I know he stormed the beaches in the first wave. I heard the gun was a gift as a token of appreciation.

    Try over on the Colt forum. There are some very knowledgable gun guys there who may have an idea on a distinctive pistol like that.
