2mm Xythos blank Pinfire Cartridge

Size: 2mm Xythos blank
Headstamp: blank
Manufacturer: ADK - Andres & Dworsky - Karlstein, Austria
Additional Info: This is the newer style pinfire that is still currently produced. It has a rounded base and is made specifically for the Berloque Xythos pinfire guns. These guns often have a 9mm flare shooter that attaches to the end of the barrel. They are sold as novelties and for hikers to be able to carry a very small flare launcher.
