HAWKINS Hand Gun

Hi there,

I need some help, I got given two guns, the one I have no idea what it is. The other is a handgun stamped HAWKINS. All the parts move and the trigger moves when you seem to cock it, if thats the right word in this case. It the metal seems to be similiar to cast iron, and it has a nice decoration on the other side, looks like a horse and wolves. the handle looks old and looks like it has been held a lot. Is this gun real, and what type of gun is this? and what is the estimated value on this if it is real?

I would really appreciate any help I can get on this.

Thanks

Yip. But nearly as nice. The metal is corroded. And the barrel on mine looks like a funnel. It also does not have a space for the stick you load it with.

It's a non firing decorator. Worth maybe 20 bucks.
