Tie Clip-Austria, Round Butt w/Deer&Rabbit Grip-NADRSBCLC1.A Datasheet
This is a Berloque miniature 2mm pinfire pistol from Austria - it is silver-plated and has a round butt with the deer and rabbit grips. It is a tie clip combo that can be used as an accessory or put on clothing. It's also an antique, produced in the 1950s and is one of the later models, which has a solid barrel, rounded happer and rounded trigger. This particular model is in "A" or excellent condition (graded based on the overall working condition and aesthetics for the same style and age). This gun has a nice finish, with just some tarnish on its body. The trigger is nice and stiff and the OAL 1 7/6". Comes with case, capsule, and blanks included! Those blanks and capsule are the original ones made from the 1950's. This mini is designed ONLY to fire 2mm pinfire BLANKS, due to having a VENTED* barrel, which is CLOSED/SEALED at the end and therefore can not fire any other projectiles.
This is listed as J4a in "The Tiniest Guns" by Bob Urso.
