Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

1911 toy pistol identification request

#1 Post by 72 usmc » Thu Apr 12, 2018 8:50 pm

I have this wood and cast iron toy pistol. The barrel is wood and the handle is cast iron. It seems to come with a metal sleeve with patent dates and the wood version lacking patent dates. Please might anyone have any information on these early toy pistols?
First the one with the sleeve shown in Gun Collector magazine. Its owner who is also looking for any information referred to it as a firecracker pistol???:

source is GUN COLLECTOR magazine Vol. 40, No. 3, June 2018, Page 10 this is the Ricochet section in the Finish Mosin Nagant Issue

This is my pistol, but it lacks a sleeve, although that mag says its a tag. My pistol is like new and has no evidence of a tag or sleeve on it.

It kind of reminds me of the British 1880s bulldog look, but these seem to date to 1911-1913. No caps, it has a trigger that sort of acts like a D Day "clicker" or those goofy frog clickers.

I tired every combo of words I could think of, and I came up empty with my google-fu. Interesting relic of days gone by that is for sure. I've never seen one before you posted these.

There is a way to post a photo on line and some search engine looks for similar items, posts, links. But I forgot how to do that
