POTD: Miniature .22 BB Cap Pistol

This article was originally posted on Thefirearmblog.com

What is this, a pistol for ants? My friend Irfan sent me this video link of a person in Thailand showing a diminutive pistol chambered in .22 bb cap. The proportions are not accurate but it somewhat resembles a 1911. The aesthetics look like the Japanese style called Super Deformed or Chibi. Think of anything that is babyfied, where the proportions are small and short kind of like a baby.

Here is an example of a Chibi MP5.

Well here is the Thai micro pistol. I was surprised that the slide lock functions.

I was unable to find out how much these are but my friend Irfan is trying his Thailand contacts to see if the can find out more information.
