CIA Covert Handgun Built Into A Tire Gauge 1950'sa, 1960's
One day a gentleman walked
into our store The
Spy Exchange And Security Center in Austin, Texas with this item.
He stated that his dad had worked for the CIA and he had passed on. He
had cleaned out his personal belongings and found this item wanting to
know if we wanted to purchase it. Rather or not the man's father really
worked for the CIA, we don't really know but this is a working covert
handgun. The tip unscrews and you can place a 22 mm round inside. You
then pull back the spring lever and the gun is cocked. We did some checking
and sure enough, this type of item was used by covert CIA agents in the
1950's and 1960's.
