So, while they are extremely rare and collectible, not many gun enthusiasts talk about the smallest guns made: the 2mm pinfires.
While they are considered "cap guns", you can buy and make live rounds for them that can go 6 inches into ballistics gelatin. I love theses tiny guns, and hope to get one, soon. Anyone else on the forum collect these neat little guns or have any to sell?

I've looked into them and had intended to purchase one in the past. I missed out on a good deal and the prices have gone up.
At this point I'd purchase a regular gun for the price as opposed to the novelty.
They are cool.

I passed on an entire xythos flare kit for $90.
Won't do that, again. Now I've found a berloque flare kit for $170. Prolly will get it. It's hella expensive for a "cap gun", but they will prolly double or triple in price, over the next few years.
Really wanna get one as a collection piece, and get a lesser quality one to make into a necklace.

I googled 2mm pin fire, and they seem pretty cool. I wonder if someone could make one, you could use plastic because it clearly doesn't have high pressure, the only problem is that it would be hard to get a barrel.

There are a couple big collectors of them that have made their own series.
But they're made as serious collection pieces, and costs like $500-$800.
They are cool little guns, though.
I love everything weird about guns.
From the failures to the odd cartridges, that's my niche.

I too love the oddities.
On my list of wants but likely won't gets are not only the 2mm but a volcanic pistol and a pepper box just for starters.

One of my biggest oddity wants is the gyrojet. Love it. Also want a mateba, even though those aren't too rare. Would really love a dadrick tround revolver. A medusa would be great, as well.

My personal bucket list for odd guns is Wildey Magnum, M4 Survival rifle, Goncz GA-9, and TEC-9 Mini.
