Looks (to me) like a 7" Swinguard. Nickel/Silver bolsters, guards, button & safety with red dot from the 1960's in Brazilian Horn. Made in Maniago Italy. A very nice piece. I'm very fond of the tiny swingers. How does it function, well?

It functions really well actually... sometimes it will not open all the way but I think it just needs a little oil however I dont know if i should so i kept it the same

Oiling it is fine. It's worth about $150, but it was your grandfather's.
