I recently acquired an Italian-made .38 Special revolver that is a very nice copy of an earlier (flat latch) S&W model 36. The gun was imported by Eig. I'm very familiar with Eig, but can't find the manufacturer of this gun. I know Bernardelli made S&W copies in .22 & .32, but I can find no reference to a .38-and have never seen a Bernardelli that was a contract gun. Can anyone help?

Aha! Thank you very much!
Do you have any other information on the maker?
This is a well-made gun, and I'm suprised that there are so few of them. The frame is cast, but I can't tell if it is iron or steel.
