This is an antique 2mm pinfire double action six shot revolver, probably made in Germany or Belgium in the 1870's. This is a fully functional and shooting miniature revolver and shoots the antique long 2mm pinfire cartridges. 1 3/4" long overall with a 11/16" barrel. No engraving, nickel plated finish except for the hammer & trigger which look to have originally been fire blued.  There is a right side loading gate that hinges backward to load the cylinder.  Ring loop trigger with a very small spur of the bottom front.  Nice condition with 90% original nickel plated finish finish with some minor flaking of the nickel.  Some of the flaked spots showing some minor surface rust and pitting.  Will probably clean to look better. Beautiful near mint two piece mother of pearl grips with nickel escutcheons and a single screw entering from the left side.  The lanyard loop ring and chain are replacements. The revolver works perfectly in both single and double action with a really crisp and strong action.  First one of these I've had in a while.

This is a 1/2 scale M-1 Thompson by the legendary Edmund de la Garrigue.  16" long overall with a 5 1/4" rifled barrel of .25 caliber.  Parkerized finished steel parts, oiled finished walnut stocks.  This is a non-firing model.  Some of these were registered class III fully automatic firing weapons.  There is a firing pin bump on the bolt face, but there is no chamber cut, no extractor, and no ejector.  The magazine is a solid block of steel with a more correct thin profile, and the magazine release spring is there, which is unusual as it is nearly always missing on these.  The sides of the receiver properly and deeply roll stamped.  Marked on the left side of the upper receiver ""EDMUND H. DE LA GARRIGUE, SR., MAKER" in two lines.  Serial number 103.   Excellent near mint condition showing only very minor handling wear and a few small freckles to the finish.  There are a lot of stories about Mr. de la Garrigue, but he is most famously known as the inventor of the Grizzly single action army revolver.  There is an out of print book about Mr. de la Garrigue called "Artistry in Single Action" by Halton Henderson.  Only 450 copies were printed, so they are very rare, expensive, and difficult to find.  The book documents these miniature Thompsons as well as several other miniatures made by Mr. de la Garrigue.
