Andres & Dworsky, Xythos 6-Shot Gold-Plated Revolver, Keychain, Flare Gun Set, In Wooden Crate

It's been fun finding and collecting these "toys". I am selling/auctioning my collection.

I have: Japan, German, Austrian - Berloques; USA, 1930's Dosick & Fisher Firesure (Mother of Pearl Grips, RARE "PAT.PEND.J.M.F.CO"); German "Kobold", "D.R.G.M." (RARE, Under-Hammer, w/ Bakelite Grips), Xythos Six-shot, Xythos Single-shot, 2mm pinfires, in Nickel & Gold Plated, Keychain, &
a JAPAN, 1950's "Little Atom" (Gold-Plated, MOP Grips, MOP Brass Pushrod & Square Pearl "BUTTON"?),
in a
Fitted, Cased Set (Crushed Blue Velvet, Fine Inlaid Wood).
[I will be selling my miniature pistols & cap guns, cap bombs, cap canes, "other", etc. too.]

I use a SONY Mavica (great close-ups!) to picture the items in 640x480 resolution, as I still get compliments on the "accuracy". I still have the original pictures of most I found in auctions though. Maybe you old timers will recognize the "one that got away". Follow my links below, or feel free to ask me for any additional pictures.

I learned much about my items found in (eBay) auctions, estate sales, flea markets and garage sales; from immensely helpful web sites by Derek F. Dredge, Bob Urso, et al; from valuable reference books used for identification. I recommend them and these three books, which I will keep to remember my "treasures".

#1 - "Miniature Arms" by Merrill Lindsay 1979

#2 & #3 - "Editions 1 and 2 of "The Tiniest Guns", Miniature and Berloque Pistols - by Bob Urso
The first edition of "The Tiniest Guns" was put together with the help of many collectors to fill a need for information on 2mm pinfire, rimfire and Berloque pistols. It was only 64 pages."

"The new, revised Second Edition doubled in size to 128 pages, and over 500 images. All of the chapters have been expanded, and there is much new information on the guns of Austria, Austrian Rifles, Austrian Revolvers, Austrian Automatics, France & Belgium Revolvers, Germany, German Revolvers, German Rifles, Japan, Japanese Rifles, Mexico, U.S.A., Unmarked, Customized & One of a Kind, Cases, Ammunition, Patents, Bibliography, Miniature Arms Collectors/Makers Society, Index."

It is not being offered to, nor intended to be sold to minors.
(Pictures are included of an original, complete, wooden crated set for descriptive purposes only.)

This auction is for (1) one Austrian made, precision miniature Xythos Revolver OAL 1-5/8" in a wooden crate, fitted case with all accessory hardware: the launcher, ejector rod and the keychain. These guns vary in construction types, this one in particular has the hammer made from a single piece. It is designed to fire 2mm pinfire blank cartridges (a.k.a. "caps") by itself or with the specialized flare attachment can be used for emergency situations on land, sea distress signaling or for pyrotechnic celebration of events. Complete instructions for use are listed on a decal label inside under lid.
[The caps and flares are obtainable from other sources & retailers; ex. "Dixie Gun Works".]
