    The large weight item is really cool! Could it be a sounding weight? Possibly a trot line weight also. I don't know, but I like it.

    I believe the large weight is a downrigger ball used to get lighter weight fishing lines down deep while trolling.

    The cap gun looks like a vintage Fanner 50 by Mattel.

    Neat finds,

    It's definitely an actual revolver, it appears to be a .22 so it's probably not as old as I suspected.

    the revolver looks like an old three screw ruger... can you show the other side of the receiver?

    The object that looks like a small paddle, I think is a bit for an air chisel.

    The revovler could be a Ruger Single Six, they came out around 1952.

    Here's the other side it's falling apart but the top over the revolver piece is lead if that helps

    if the backstrap is lead...the weapon is a toy or demilled wall hanger.

    The Ruger single six in the 50's had a firing pin on the hammer. Don't see a firing pin on this one.
    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.
