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.
