No idea, but it looks like it can hit the high notes.

I believe this is a "Chi-Town Bassoon".
A Short-barrelled Scatter Gun, like the Blunderbuss that came before it, and the Shotgun that came after, the Chi-Town Bassoon played a major role in Prohibition-era Chicago.

While Al Capone and his Mob had the "Chicago Typewriter", his rival Benny "David" Goodman, the King of the Swing Gang made the Chi-Town Bassoon famous.

Like the Thompson Sub Machine Gun, the Chi-Town Bassoon was often concealed in a Musical Instrument Case; hence the term "Face the Music".

Great Find Ace...!!!

Looks like a Clarinet (gun) with a scope on it.
The "high notes" - that was good.

It's unmistakable. It's the disguised weapon built by Q-branch and Major Geoffrey Boothroyd for MI6 back in the early 1960s. It was specially made for a double O agent posing as an orchestra member whose mission was to eliminate a Smersh agent cleverly disguised as an itinerant music conductor. This "clarinet" was not only a functional musical instrument but also a single shot .32 ACP which, in highly trained hands and lips, was deadly accurate out to 30 yards. Unfortunately the actual operational use of the clarinet-like weapon remains classified.
