My new toy
« on: July 01, 2018, 11:28:09 AM »
Check out my new toy. Picked it up at a gun show yesterday. Made by DGG but I can find no date or proof marks. You guys got any ideas?

DGG is the trademark of Armi San Paulo which later became Euroarms.    It was imported by Spesco I see but don't see the DGG mark any where.  Is it on the bottom of the grip frame?   Some were marked with date codes and proofs just in front of the trigger guard on the bottom of the frame.  Also look under the loading lever if you haven't already.

It is marked DGG under the loading lever. I see no proof marks or date marks. May be under trigger guard. I may take apart later but not right  now. Doesn't look like it has been fired but has been in and out of a holster cause I see wear on barrel blueing. Action has been racked a lot cause there is wear on the cylinder. Bore is bright and clean. Cylinder bores are clean also.

Nice clean gun, DL! Oh, and welcome aboard!
Many times the lack of a date code (either Roman Numerals or two letters in a box) indicates a kit gun.
