I acquired a small .22 rimfire pistol that I would like to know a bit about its history. The gun has 4 barrels with a rotary firing pin. The barrel is about an inch long and the gun is about the size of a Seecamp. It's a top break gun which pivots open for loading. Markings on the gun show it was made in Italy and it has a serial number and proof marks. There are two letters "EG", which I guess was the manufacturer, on the ivory colored plastic grips and the frame. Stamped on the barrel are the words "Use standard velocity Cal. 22 short, long, or long rifle cartridge." The frame appears to be stainless steel. Has anyone seen one of these before?
