Banner Blank Pistol:
1-3/4" OAL This gun is based on an Ives, cast iron, blank gun named "Banner". The original, which dates from 1882, looks like an old cast iron Cap Gun but is actually a blank firing pistol. On the original, the swing over breech cap had a nipple on the inside of the back plate, which was slammed into the rimfire cartridge when the hammer struck it.
I chose this gun because I wanted to offer a less expensive pistol. The gun's simple design, its lack of plating, or seperate grips all help keep the cost down.
My version has been modified to use the 2mm pinfire cartridge. It is solid cast brass, finished with brass black to give it an aged patina. This gun is numbered on the back of the breech arm
Cleanout rod is included
