short video on an unknown weapon. Any ideas? I was thinking a bring back from Vietnam of a home made weapon someone captured.

The coil spring used on the hammer is not a home brew. One would need access to someone in the clock/watch business.

The side plates are very well fitted and seem overly complicated. And it looks like it had gold leaf on parts.

The grip are similar to the early Browning designs.

I'm thinking 1890-1900ish European, Eastern? Possibly for a royal gift or patent submission?

Seems Rock Island Auction has or had several unknowns.(c pics)
