That sounds like an unusual revolver. You would need to post photos with some size reference.

I think I have the same

I have a belgian made revolver sounds similar. It is break action 5 shot, mine has .320 cal stamped on it (smaller cases than .32 S&W) so it is a 32, but weirdo ammo. It is the small nickel plated pocket pistol top right of the pics

You could have dressed up like a mall Ninja (Gecko45) and broken into his place and photographed his gun? Just like I did

I don't think any of the ones in your pics are what he has.

Maybe we shouldn't poke fun at him. If he thinks a small furrin .32 is a SSA - I trust he meant SAA, a lot of folks miss that one - clone, then he needs a LOT of help.

So, gunnnut310, show us what you have.

I think he meant SAA(single action army)I've seen a lot of folks type SSA when they meant SAA. He did say it's a small frame revolver.

LMAO

When I first saw the proof mark pic, I thought it looked like a tattoo on someones butt coz of the texture of the pages,

That gun looks like what a Vaquaro must have been roughly designed from? Well, there are similarities, and Vaq's are a modern copy/based on something. What gun was the Vaq based on?

I'll be jiggered, it IS made up to look like a Single Action Army. But if "small frame, 5 shot" it is definitely scaled down. And there are numerous mechanical differences.

I don't know who made it, and figure chances of finding extractor rod and housing are poor. (If you were making a quality product wouldn't you put your name or trademark on it?)
