Hehe, I remember reading about the Velo-Dog. Only gun, where you had to warn others, that you were firing at them in order to make sure, they even knew they were being shot at.
....or only shoot at very small dogs.
Mine is an obsolete calibre of 5mm, but a lovely little pistol, all i had to do when i got is is clean it right through and put a new return spring in and it works perfect.
Nice, when the old warhorses are able to brought to a functioning state so easily. Good job.
Thanks Dave for the research... I purchased this pistol from an antique shop close to Nigara falls. The grip was made of ivory as you mentioned and some engraving on both sides of the pistol. The trigger mechanism still function nice and tight.
The antique vendor told me its not easy to obtain the old bullet and also reveal the pistol was around 1870. Thanks for showing the clear path of the gun's origin. Much appreciated.....
