Cap Gun Monday: MARX Miniature Flintlock Pistol

This miniature flintlock came in the same set as the Tommy Gun I featured a lot of weeks ago (the top of the box and the complete inner tray are pictured HERE). It also came in other sets, like the one below, and by itself on a card. This one's about 4 and 5/8 inches long. and the only moving part is the hammer, which you just pull back and release. Most of the parts that look like metal really are, but the chrome finish is just painted on. When that paint wears off these guns get ugly fast, but this one, I'm pleased to report, is in mint condition.

You can Cap Gun the day away right HERE.

This implies a non-sticking round cap. I don't remember seeing any when I was a kid, but then again I never had any need for them.
