Italian Muff Pistol:
OAL, This 2mm pinfire Muff pistol is based on a design I've
long wanted to make.
first made a brass prototype, it was then hand engraved with deep
cut recesses. Then a mold was made and waxes pulled, which were then
cast in brass.

Due to the lack of mini percussion caps, I decided to make mine fire 2mm pinfire cartridges, which although getting expensive are still available.
