"
XYTHOS AUTOMATIC 6-shot",
Nickel-Plated, 2mm Pinfire,
Revolver Keychain



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."



eBay, THIS IS NOT A FIREARM - NOR CAN IT BE MODIFIED TO FIRE LIVE BULLET AMMUNITION!
It is not being offered to, nor intended to be sold to minors.
(Pictures are of a cased set for descriptive purposes only. There are no "cartridges" included.)

This auction is for a NEW CONDITION Austrian made, precision miniature, Xythos 6-SHOT Nickel-Plated Revolver OAL 1-5/8" in the Round Hard Plastic Fitted Case with the Ejector Rod in the Keychain Version. These guns vary in construction types, this one in particular has the hammer made from three riveted pieces. See my auction (Item #270039245169) for a one piece hammer. It is an Older Version of the A21 discussed in Bob Urso's book. The markings on the back read: "ANDRES & DWORSKY AUSTRIA 3822 MADE IN AUSTRIA PATENT" in a continous circle, which differs from the newer flare version mentioned in the book. It is designed to fire 2mm pinfire blank cartridges (a.k.a. "caps").
[The caps and flares are obtainable from other sources & retailers; ex. "Dixie Gun Works".]


"
A21 - Xythos Revolver. OAL 1-5/8"
In 1999 a new model Xythos appeared with finer detailing of the barrel, and around the front of the frame. The newer versions have the additional markings of 2mmB and PTB-82 in a circle."

"
Here is one of several packaging variations for the Xythos. The round plastic case contains cartridges and extra accessories to use the pistol as a tie bar, or as a keychain."

"The markings on the back of this most recent offering of "
The World's Smallest Revolver" include:
HERSTELLER: ANDERS & DWORSKY
PRODUCER: A-3822 KARLSTEIN/THAYA
MANUFACTURER: PATENT MADE IN AUSTRIA"


From The Tiniest Guns, A catalog for collectors of 2mm pinfire and rimfire miniatures, By Bob Urso, Second Edition With Twice As Much Information. (December 2002.)
