My library didn't have an exact mach but it got me close enough to do a bit of google work which leads me to believe that its a Gabilondo-Ruby

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruby_pistol

Cees is right, it was really closely modeled after Browning's M1903.

If I was home I could consult my collection of books and whatnot, its a good bet that it'd be in there- but its a good bet someone will have an answer for you before I get home to look.

Ok, so one of my friends (who lives near Dayton Ohio) has an older neighbor who told him that she had one of John Dillingers guns.
 
It is now sitting on my desk, and I've been searching trying to figure out what this gun is?
 
It looks to be a 32 caliper. But, there are no maker marks other than a "F" under the safety (for fire, I assume). And the serial number (5 digits) and then the stamping of "John Dillinger 1934"...
 
It is confusing me, anyone got any ideas?
 
She has the grips, but with them on, you can't see the stamping.
 
 
They tremble at my name...
