This tiny pistol is a replica of a 2mm Xythos Pinfire pistol, a miniature gun that was made in Austria. Geof’s model was made in 1968 from steel and has ebony handles. Geof borrowed a real one from a friend and duplicated the parts. It is a non-firing replica with six chambers in the revolver cylinder. It cycles when you pull the trigger, but the mechanism is not made exactly like the original. The original fires tiny 2mm caps and also flares when using a special attachment that goes on the end of the barrel.
