So I no it's old when I was younger about 15 years ago was the last time we shot it together.shot .22lr out of it. If that helps a little.

I believe your pistol was made in Belgium but this is a guess based on the way certain parts are marked. 馃 or it might be Spanish....

The name Manuel Escodin does not appear on a list of gunmakers in Eibar in 1914. However, he does appear on a list of Ruby pistol manufacturers for the French a few years later, so he may have been an employee of another firm who went into business for himself when the 鈥淩uby bonanza鈥 came about in 1915/16.

Post-war, this type of copy of a S&W seems to be only gun of record he produced. As was mentioned, usually only .38 and .32 calibers are seen; I鈥檝e found no other reference to a .22, but if that鈥檚 what you shot, that鈥檚 what it appears to be; I can鈥檛 see anyone going through the trouble of converting one by lining cylinder and barrel.
