FLZ - Mako (Novelty Patent, Twite).
With thanks to Larry H for these pics.
The following information taken from John Griffiths The Encyclopedia of Spring Air Pistols:
The barrel is pushed in to compress the spring and then pulled back out and broken to load. The pistol is 11" long.
This pistol was advertised in the UK in the 1925 and 1926 Clyde Bell catalogues as the Twite; in a 1928 German catalogue as the Mako-Luftpistole; and was unnamed in the 1929 August Stukenbrok (German) catalogue.
A smaller model was also made with squarer cast iron frame and straight wood grips.
