    I got a Armsport Inc., from Miami, listed in my reference. They were an importer/distributor of Black Powder firearms, but out of business for awhile now.

    Closest thing I could find to your description, is a combination gun. It has a 20 Ga. shotgun barrel and a rifle barrel.

    EDIT #1, Your pistol is listed as the Corsair Model. This is what it looks like.

    EDIT # 2, It's listed under Armsport in my book. Armsport was the U.S. importer/distributor. It might have been also sold by other U.S. companies.

    There should be a Roman Numeral as one of the Italian Proof Marks. This will give date of manufacture.

    Generally these modern Italian made Black Powder pistols aren't worth a lot. My WAG is that it would be bought as a wall hanger for the man cave. Probably in the $150-$250 range,if it's in excellent cosmetic condition.

    It is an Armsport. It ain't gonna fund your retirement. Pistols such as this were imported in the '70's and '80's by several "take the money and run" gun companies in South Florida and Southern California. The fact is today, these pistols have very little, if any, collectors value. Their only value apart from possible sentimental ("It belonged to my mother"),is as a shooter.
    If unfired in absolutely mint condition with original box and papers, around $150.00 tops.
    If it has been fired, and no box or papers, $50.00 on a good day. And I am quoting retail prices.
