"Zimmer" pistol

Okay, yes I know it is not a rifle, but seldom seen. Picked this up at auction last week, just need a loading "spoon". Not marked as to maker, just DRGM stamped and intials A.W. stamped on the grip and forearm with a 4 digit number. Anyone have a picture of one, they are willing to share?

Tom Pistol competition is a part of the Schuetzen matches. Here are the scores for both CF and RF at the ISSA National Event.

I forgot to mention, this is a 4mm pistol, separate round ball and shell.  Made, I think for parlor shooting.

Yep, Tom is right. Its a Zimmer-Pistol for parlor matches. They used these in the old days in Germany. But they were not so famous as Zimmerstutzen-rifles.

But it is the same technique like the zimmer-rifles. Separate lead-ball and primer-cap.

Nice old item, congrats!
