Japan-Little Atom, Chkrd Butt & Sharp Hammer-NJLACSBSHV2.B Datasheet
This is the Little Atom Berloque miniature 2mm pinfire pistol from Japan - it is nickel-plated brass, has a sqaure butt with checkered grips and a sharp hammer - making it rare and harder to find! There is also a clear stamp of "JAPAN" underneath the barrel on the left side of the gun. The orange tape on the barrel is removeable. The similar Austrian version does not have the beaded background, and the grips are pressed relief and removable from the guns. The barrel is also vented. This particular model is in "B" or good condition (graded based on the overall working condition and aesthetics for the same style and age). This gun has a good finish, with just tarnish, minor scratches and wear on the gun - mainly the tarnish on the hammer and body. The trigger works fine and the overall length (OAL) is 1 5/8". These minis are designed to fire ONLY BLANK projectiles. Be cautious when loading and firing this gun regardless!
This gun is listed as J3a in "The Tiniest Guns" by Bob Urso.
