Rare Miniature Xythos Pinfire
2mm Pistol with Flares and
sometimes called a key chain pistol due to it's size. It is
an actual working gun that can fire 2mm blanks. I have seen
guys drop a 2mm ball bearing down the barrel before firing
the blank round and the ball will go through both sides of
an empty soda can.
These were made in Austria by Andres &
Dworsky from about 1970 to 1999. It is nickel plated with a
gold plated trigger and a 5 ridge backswept hammer spur. It
measures about 1½" in overall
length. Comes with
6 white, 2 yellow and
2 red flares and 36 blank rounds. Also included is a spare
cylinder. There are a few places on the internet to buy more
ammo and flares for these. I found
thepinfire.com had the cheapest and
pinfireguns.com which was a little more expensive. The
ammo isn't real cheap but I doubt anyone takes these out for
a day of plinking.
The gun is
unfired in like new condition and has the plastic fitted
case and instruction sheet.

Here is a video
