My friend's 88-year-old mother has this pistol hanging around her house. All she knows about it is that someone who was unable to pay his grocery bill gave it to her late husband in lieu of cash.

The only stamping on it is:
Kal 3 20
Kara 1326

There's no trigger guard, but the trigger folds up in the direction of the barrel.

I googled it a few ways, but found nothing relevant on the net. Anyone know anything about this revolver?

Thanks
EdP

It is one of a multitude of inexpensive European revolvers from about a hundred years ago.

Kal .320 is the European equivalent of Caliber .32 Short Colt.

Kara might be the maker or distributor. Lots of cheap guns were marked by the seller, not the manufacturer.
1326 might be the serial number or the model number.

Proof marks would indicate where it was made but not necessarily the maker or the date.

Please consider it a novelty and minor heirloom, it is not a strong gun and I would not shoot it.

Thanks for the quick reply, Jim. I'll pass that information on.
