Help I.D this pistol?

Post by Rapidrob »

I asked about this pistol a few years back and am hoping with the internet really allowing info from the world to be published,that this pistol can be identified.
It is very small, not much larger than the Kel-Tec P32. It has three markings. One on the barrel "Spain".
The other two are on the frame. The are two "35"'s and the letter "C".
The pistol belonged to my Grandfather and was carried by him for many years. It went to my Great Aunt,then my Mother,then to me.
It was Parkerized due to finish wear after WWII.
Any ideas? I think it might be a Ruby,but I have not seen another one like it posted on the WWW.

I have seen those called Triumphs....But Spain in those days knocked off those "Ruby" style guns from dozens of manufactures and this one does look like a no name.. 25 acp I assume??? I like the look of them.. Looks like a clean baby browning...
