They are an antique, produced in the 1950's and are one of the later models (after 1956), which has a solid barrel, rounded happer and rounded trigger. These particular models is in "A" or Excellent condition (graded based on the overall working condition and aesthetics for the same style and age). These guns have a nice finish, with just some minor tarnish around the barrel. The triggers is nice and stiff; you could hardly tell that they've even been fired. The OAL 1¾", and, everything you see here is included! These minis are designed ONLY to fire 2mm pinfire BLANKS, due to having a VENTED* barrel, which is CLOSED/SEALED at the end and therefore can not fire any projectiles. Great to wear for a special occasion!
