Decades Old, Vintage Joseph Silk Gun...scarce And Rare, Still Works:
Vintage Joseph Silk Pistol. It still works as I tested it out before listing. Comes with over 600 caps for making a loud report. I am including a photo copy of instructions as well as a copy from a 1940's ad in Genii Magazine as well as a copy of a routine from a 1948 Genii magazine. The actual date is unknown, but the former owner has a tag attached that says 1930, but can't be sure if that is an actual purchase date or a guesstimate, in any case, it is decades old no matter how you look at it. I have been told that the gold handle was a limited edition, making this even more rare. The gun is patterned after the Mauser Automatic Pistol The former owner used blue tack inside to capture the silk on the winder rather than using the original hooks. I much better idea as the silk being vanished isn't torn like it would be using the hooks.A great item for your collection.
