Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 5116

Question:

This concerns a baby hammerless again. Although I have looked at various pages on the web, most that I have found said this was made in .22 cal. The one I have seems like it is either a .25 or possibly .32 cal. The patient dates on top are Feb2.92-Feb4 96 with the name baby hammerless under that, and pat. pending below this. The grips are of black plastic with scroll work at the top and bottom. The frame is chrome with a blued trigger, folding forward. Conditon of this firearm I would classify as good. Any information would be appreciated.

Answer:

The Baby Hammerless revolvers were the smallest American double-action revolvers. The first ones were made by the Columbian Firearms Mfg. Co of Philadelphia from 1896 to 1897; From 1897 to 1916 they were made by Henry Kolb of Philadelphia; and from 1916 to 1938 they were made by R.F. Sedgley of Philadelphia. The large solid frame 32 centerfire was produced with or without loading gate and was 5 inches overall with a 1 1/2 inch barrel.
