KOBOLD, D.R.G.M.
2mm Pinfire, Berloque, Pistol
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 Precision Miniature, "MADE IN GERMANY" Kobold Pinfire, Nickel-Plated Pistol, with Beautiful Pearl Grips and an overall length of 1-1/2". The color of the grips appears to be more of a YELLOW as pictured, whether that is the resulting fade from original brown, green, or white - or a variation. This RARELY FOUND little GOBLIN = "Kobold", also marked "D.R.G.M.", is in Excellent Condition.

Remarkable and notably unusual is the manner and function of operation - it uses an "UNDERHAMMER" design to strike the 2mm pinfire blank cartridges, a.k.a. "caps". When in the "cocked" position the entire front of the grip becomes the "trigger" (SEE PICTURES). This little gun has holes to hang it on a keychain, charm bracelet or as a watch fob.


"
G4 - Kobold, OAL 1-1/2"
Nickel plated brass, with Bakelite like grips - found in brown, green, and white. Markings "Kobold", which means Goblin in German and "DRGM", which means "Deutsches Reichs Gebrauchs Muster" and implies that the pistol was protected in Germany on a similar basis to a patented item in our country.
"

"This nicely finished gun is similar in design to the Austrian pistols made by F. Pfannl, such as the Kolibri. Unlike the Kolibri, however, it is not a rimfire but an underhammer, 2mm pinfire. This is the only production, underhammer pinfire that I know of. The Kobold was made after W.W.I but prior to W.W.II."

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.)
