Anyone have any idea what year this could have been from ? Found stuff 1850s and up it?s pretty heavy and I don?t see any maker name on it . Has anyone ever seen one like this ? Is it a toy or something else? Thanks for looking FC465433-BAD6-40FC-8FBF-F858E389E8CA.jpeg 523CA9B9-7934-4E7D-9CFB-4DD5F20B3F5A.jpeg DA800E09-B228-43C5-86F1-25D126E4E73D.jpeg 9140C987-5808-4142-BB8C-A70A22417CCE.jpeg

That's a toy copy of a top break revolver. The real ones were popular in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Real ones were made by Iver Johnson, Smith & Wesson, H & R and others. Gary

That is actually an old toy water pistol. It would have had a rubber bulb for the "grips"

That’s a fantastic ID mud hut—and also explains the location where it was found!
