    a Berloque miniature 2mm pinfire pistol from Austria . These were made by a watch maker and fired a 2mm projectile. They were made for use as a watch fob. This is a very early example dating to 1900 and this silver example is pretty scarce. It is absolutely legal to own as atf regards it as a novelty. I was delighted to acquire it for my collection

    Dano, the Austria ones are the early ones that began in the late 1800’s. They are neat items to attach to your watch chain or just collect as a side item.
    Here are a few of mine displayed.

    Very nice and creative display! I have seen it before in another thread(in the past)
    but it's worth seeing again.

    One of my favorites, turned out to be 14K chain/Tbar on a gold filled watch, purchased from the Bay.
