A friend is trying to find out about this .22 short caliber 4 barreled pocket gun. It appears to have "A.Leerti & C. Garlione V.T. Italy" written on the side.

It looks like a copy (replica) of the old Sharps 4-barrel derringer of the old west. I think they were sold by several distributors, but may all have been made in the same Italian factory. They (the repros) were sold in the 1970-80's, IIRC.

Probably has enough wear that the trademark is really A. Uberti, Gardone, Italy.
Not uncommon, there was one on another board that everybody was convinced Grandma had carried in the Depression.
