Silver Xythos Tie Clasp Kit-SX5SC1.B Datasheet
This is a Xythos miniature 2mm pinfire pistol from Austria - this is a later styled antique, produced in the 1960's, which has a 5-ridge hammer, is silver-plated, and comes with all the parts to wear it as a Tie Clasp or one Cuff Link. The original square Xythos box is included, only the small box which housed original blanks is not present. This particular model is in "B" or GOOD condition (graded based on the overall working condition and aesthetics for the same style and age). The finish has some areas on the core of the gun and cylindar which is losing some plating and lightly tarnished, but the gun works great. Overall length (OAL) is 1 5/8". Comes with everything you see here! This Xythos is designed to fire 2mm pinfire BLANKS only (do not attempt to fire lead ball/live rounds).
Xythos revolvers are listed in "The Tiniest Guns" by Bob Urso, Vol. 3, pages 40-42 where you can find lots of good information on the history and types made. We've also included some Xythos history on the main category page.
