Obviously, it is a Model 6 German Mouser.

No really, it's a blank firing, German made Starter Pistol, likely made by EMGE or Gerstenberger.
 
Course, I could be wrong, I often am.


ETA: Yep, Gerstenberger....  http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=109711747

The target on the hand guard - Is that the same emblem on a Rhom pistol?

look on the bright side... you don't need an FFL to get it, so unless you have one.. You just saved 40 bucks or so.   But being that you just bought some random gun, you prolly have your FFL right?

The Model 6 at EMGE's website lists 6mm, usually also sold as .22 blanks.

The majority of starter pistols use those.

Can't guarantee your Model 6 uses the same, but it's likely a good place to start ( :lol:).

 Yep, thats a starter pistol. They were also made by another German firm called PIC.

 They fed .22 blanks by way of that progressive strip that eventually pushed its way out of the trapdoor in the back....
