Ugly Gun Sunday

I don't know what this top break zip gun is.

It was apparently made in 1960.

I do not recognize the type of writing.

I bet it has an interesting history.

It might be fun to shoot.

It's still ugly.

The lower-case character that looks like an 'r' following the date on the receiver appears on many Russian arms; I understand it is the first letter for the Russian word for 'year'.

The cartridge looks like a tokarev round. I'm guessing Russian.

It looks like Cyrillic.The 7.62x25 also gave it away to being Russian. If so it would the B=L and the other letter would be L. What that is suppose to represent is beyond me.

Actually Russian "В" is more like english V and it used in makaroV or Vodka word. And "Л" is more like W in English "What". "г" stands for g as used in english word "God". and yes "god" in Russian language means year. I don't know actual meaning of the writings is it a serial number, factory code or maybe something else.

My wife says the two letters are actually a V and an L.

It looks like a Soviet-era flare pistol that some creative person fitted with a pistol calibre barrel.

It looks rather home-grown, to my uneducated eye.

most dates in Russian have the year followed by the Russian letter for G, which looks like an r in Cyrillic. I can speak and read russian, and things are dated this way a lot.
