Gold Xythos Female Pinfire Flare Kit - GFX5RFK.NOS Datasheet
This is a Xythos miniature 2mm pinfire pistol from Austria - it is gold-plated, female barrel, 5 ridge hammer, and black grips which comes in plastic flare kit. This is a later styled antique, produced in the 1960's, which has a round trigger & 5 ridge hammer. This particular model is in "NOS" or NEW OLD STOCK condition (graded based on the overall working condition and aesthetics for the same style and age), meaning these flare kits have never been fired or used! We were lucky to find this new old stock (NOS) from an original describer. These gun has a great finish as well. Overall length (OAL) is 1 5/8". Comes with everything you see here - flare adapter, flares, blanks and extra parts! This Xythos is designed to fire 2mm pinfire BLANKS only (do not attempt to fire lead ball/live rounds).
