Can anyone tell me who might have manufactured this. It is a well made replica from Japan.

It is probably chambered for a blank round called a 5-in-1, they were used in many blank adapted pistols and rifles for westerns.

The 5in 1 round was made for real guns. That one probably uses a type of 9mm blank that is designed only to fit a prop gun.

You can buy them new from $95 to $165.

The early Japanese replica guns were so realistic, that laws were passed over there to regulate them and their manufacture. The one on the auction might be one of the early versions before the laws were changed.

They were so realistic, before the laws were changed. That unknowing folks in the States, have been stuck with the early production ones. Years ago I knew a Army reservist from calli who had one turn up in his arms room. All they could figure is that some wise guy turned it in, after coming in from the field. The armorer just stuck it in the rack with the other 45's with out checking it out.

Speaking of prop guns, I have some 45 Colt rounds that are nickel plated fakes, I believe. The shell, bullet and primer all appear to be plated. They won't chamber fully in any 45 Colt cylinder that I have, either Colt or S&W. The bullet sticks too far out of the shell, and doesn't allow the cylinder to turn with the round in it. Got into trouble with my SAA, and had to disassemble the cylinder from the frame to remove the round. Neat looking, though. Thought they might have been made for the Lone Ranger movies, as they came from St. Louis area where John Hart was from. Anyone interested in a couple? BT

No, that's just some odd light coming through the frame. The cylinder turns just fine.

A word of caution. Stage or prop guns can kill! The charge has to be held in by something, usually an over the powder wad which is propelled out of the barrel when the gun is fired. These have only a short range but can be deadly for a short distance.
Several years ago a TV actor put a prop gun loaded with blanks to his head and pulled the trigger. The wad killed him.
