Prototype and/or Experimental Handgun
, a skilled gunsmith tried to combine the recoil of a pistol to revolve the cylinder similar the famous Webley Fosbery, a combination of semi-automatic pistol and revolver.  Caliber circa 45, 5½" barrel with pinned front sight,  metal kept in the white, smooth wooden grips, gas operated rotary magazine, single- and double-action.

Extremely interesting as design and construction by an unknown, but knowledgeable craftsman. The only specimen my friends and I have seen. THIS one is pictured in a 1930's catalog WORLD'S GUNS, an advertisement catalog by Golden State, page 192.  The catalog is included.      sold
