    Friend asked me to find out more info on an older gun he has. The gun has zero markings on it.

    Is the trigger guard pulling away from the stock? Or is that something else I'm seeing?

    Honestly, it looks like a wall hanger to me rather than a shooter.

    Yeah he's looking to see if anyone knows what it is and if there's any value to someone to restore. He will probably put it above the fireplace.

    Based on what I see, it’s value is purely decorative. Not worth restoring. Probably European made and very inexpensive in its day. Will look great over his mantle.

    If it functions (cocks both hammers, drops both hammers) then I'd restore it.

    It'll look good over the mantle. It's not worth much.
