Lee Van Cleef used one of these in the film Return of Sabata and it is definitely a pistol. They were originally conceived in France as a weapon for assassins and was originally available in a 10 shot 6mm and 7 shot 7mm. In the US it was chambered for .22,.32 center fire and .32 rimfire cartridges. A really nice one would probably go for $2500-$3000 today.

It,s easy, it,s a minneapolis protecter (1883)
It was made in 3 cal.,s 32 center fire/32 rim fire and a very uniqe 22 bb cap rim fire.
I would love to owne one but they cost to much for me!

This is a russian made hand cruppler. A Weevolint inspector uses this small device to make a nonsymetrical hole from which to draw a sample for semi-destructive testing. The device had to be small so that it could be concealed from the Weevolint, else drastic violence may ensue. Weevolints were finally made extinct during the Bavarian Ice riots of 1932.

I was gonna guess a stove, but everyone seems to be certain that it's a gun.

I figured that the round part was the burner, and the tube on the left goes out to a butane tank.
