Question How do I name a page about a gun that doesn't have a specific name?

I ask for advice on the following problem. I was going to design a page for the Bernardelli pistol, which is already featured in two movies (''La sfida'' and ''Bent'') and a TV series (''Nero Wolfe''), but I ran into a problem. This model doesn't have a specific name.

The company produced this model from the late 1940s until it was replaced by the Model 60. In catalogues and ads of that time the gun is called simply Bernardelli, without specifying. These pistols are often referred as Bernardelli VT or Bernardelli Gardone VT because of the markings on the slide, but this is an erroneous name (and I made that mistake myself first): the markings mean Gardone Val Trompia, the full name of the town that is a home for main Italian firearms manufacturers, including Beretta, Bernardelli, FAMARS, Uberti and Chiappa.

Some other names for this gun that I found in the internet, also seem incorrect: "Bernardelli .32" doesn't fit as this pistol was also produced in .380 and .22 calibers, and "Bernardelli pre-Model 60" is too generic.

So I would welcome some good advice. Thank you in advance!
