    Any ideas exactly what this is? A friend found it while cleaning out her grandmothers house. It looks like it has a tiny cap and ball muzzle loader on top with a little swing down trigger. It has two folding knives, and tweezers at the bottom of the grip like on a swiss army knife. Any idea on what it is and if it would be worth anything to a collector? Thanks a bunch.

    Wow, thanks for the fast response, Illuminate. The markings on the blade are illegible, so I can't confirm the manufacturer, but it looks exactly like the ones you posted. Thanks again for the info.

    AAAwww...

    That's SO cute! :)

    Is it a cap and ball or .22 short?

    It looks like it's cap and ball. It has a little nipple on the back that I assume the cap goes on. It even has a tiny little ball mold inletted on one side of the handle like on a swiss army knife. I haven't measured it yet, but I don't think it could be more than about .25 - .30 caliber. It's very cute, but completely useless. :)

    Nope.
    Useful in that it has made some of us think...
    And learn.

    Cool

    You're right. I was a little harsh on it. It's a cool and unique design, but I sure wouldn't want to use it to defend myself. Either today, or when it was made.

    Oh, I don't know. It might be good for fending off a marauding rat...

    Not so useless, considering what she could get for that if it's in decent shape.
