“If there is a thing, someone has made a gun out of that thing,” says Ian with Forgotten Weapons as he shows off his key ring with a kick.
Theorized to belong to a prison warden, the key only has a touch hole to set off the black powder charge in the chamber. The idea is the shooter would set it off with the cherry of a cigar.
The gun is being sold with three other antique percussion pocket pistols in one lot next week through Rock Island Auction Company with a combined estimated value of $1100-1700.
Cigar not included.
