does looks like it has a lot of potential. did you find any magazines? if not, it might not be easy to find replacements.

there was one in the drawer but it doesn't seem to fit. I didn't want to jam it in there. and yes it is very dirty and smelly :(

my mom just heard about the stupid gun buy back in fresno this weekend about 20 mins ago and wants to turn it in for the $100 gift card now :chris:

I'm going to hide it though so she doesn't turn it in :cool2:

That's an Iver-Johnson TP-22 Pocket Pistol. It's a 15oz .22 caliber (or .25 for the TP25) double action semiauto with a 3 inch barrel, 7 shot finger tip extension magazine, black plastic gripos, fixed sights. They were made in blue or a matte blue finish between '85-'86 and reintroduced in 88-90.

Values are not very high. A NIB specimen might fetch $145 or so. In the rough condition pictured, maybe $80-$90 value. The stainless steel version was called the Silver Hawk but would only fetch about $25 more.

If you can find a magazine for it and clean it up, it might be more valuable as a fun plinker or last ditch backup piece.
