We need more details to identify. Is it a single barrel, double barrel or repeater (pump, lever, semi-auto)? Exposed hammer(s)? Damascus barrel(s) or steel? Any other markings anywhere?

Just offhand I would say that this is a "spec" or trade gun made up for a store or company.

most whippets i'm familiar with are double barrel pistols miostly in 20 gauge. Those are destructive devices, other.
