Well your guess was the same as mine. I couldn't have expected much out of such a rough looking gun. I just dont really see a use in me keeping it, since I have a few real ones myself. I may see if I can post it to an auction site or something. Any idea how hard it would be to ship this thing to a potential buyer?

Legally, that is not a firearm- it is not designed to fire a projectile, so does not have to go to a dealer. You can ship directly to an adult. US Mail does NOT permit blank pistols, but you can send by UPS Ground. UPS normally requires next day air for handguns, but, as I said, that is not a handgun. I would have buyer send me a copy of ID showing he is 18 or older.

Post a pic of YOUR gun, and all the funny little little squiggly lines called WORDS, and we may be able to identify. If it IS a blank gun, simply removing the bore obstruction will NOT permit you to safely fire ball ammo- gun will self disassemble with harm to you, innocent bystanders, etc.
Hi, c3shooter is 100% right : CAUTION, CAUTION, CAUTION. It's a so called ALARM PISTOL !!! You can only fire blank or gas cartridges.

The finest bronze wool (not steel wool) you can find and a very light touch will pull the rust right off without affecting the bluing. It won't do much for pitting but surface rust doesn't stand a chance.
