My friend has this pistol that I've been trying to find information on. I can't find a picture anywhere on the net. It says JOHANN PETERLONGO INNSBRUCK on the top side of the barrel. It has engraving on the receiver, stock and trigger guard, and what looks like silver inlay. I don't know the caliber but I think it might be .32 or 7.65. Any help would be appreciated. pics to follow in a few minutes. loading them from my phone. Sorry, the pics really suck when uploaded.

One of the better "Parlor Pistols" made in Austria, most likely .32 rimfire. Late 1800's to early 1900's. Instead of having a few beers and throwing darts in the local pub, they shot a target across the room with light gallery loads. Probably where the term originated, "Hold my beer and watch this".
