1931 - USA Samuel Dosick Pinfire,
Pearl Grips, Watch Fob


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."



~ The Auction ~

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.

This Auction is for a Miniature, "MADE IN USA" Pinfire, Nickel Plated Pistol, with Faux Pearl Grips, which may be celluloid plastic and has an overall length of 2". It is unmarked. This little gun has a ring to hang it on a keychain, charm bracelet or as a watch fob. The printed instructions pictured in Mr. Urso's book & on Mr. Dredge's web site say to push the trigger forward in order to cock the hammer - this is not necessary for this example. It works fine, when pulling the hammer back, the trigger springs forward and engages the hammer - until the trigger is pulled. It is designed to fire pinfire blank cartridges (a.k.a. "caps").
[I have some 2mm pinfire caps too old to fire, which are obtainable, for display purposes.]


"
U1 - Dosick, OAL 2"
Single shot, tilt down barrel. Nickel plated brass, with pearl or plastic grips.
