5 inch round bbl., black finish, walnut grips. A product of the 1960s, the Mark I Gyrojet uses a 13mm solid fuel rocket in place of a standard cartridge.

CONDITION: Excellent, retaining 98% original black finish with a few light handling marks, and minimal high edge wear. Grips are also excellent with limited handling marks. Mechanically excellent. Box is very good with storage and handling marks and staining.

Rare Desirable Kimball Arms .30 Caliber
Carbine Semi-Automatic Pistol with Case - Serial no. 128, 30
Carbine cal., 5 inch round bbl., blue finish, plastic grips. One of
less than 250 manufactured between 1955 and 1958. The Kimball was a
failed attempt at producing a blow-back operation pistol chambered for
the .30 Carbine cartridge. It uses a series of rings machined into the chamber
wall, which in theory would allow the casings to swell into the recesses and lock, delaying extraction long enough for pressure to drop. Of the reported 238 manufactured, many were destroyed during use by the severe recoil, making examples in this kind of condition even more rare. Features a ramped blade front and adjustable notch rear sights, with the Detroit, Michigan, address on the left side of the chamber, serial number on
the right. The frame features a magazine release button
on the left side behind the grip and a ribbed safety tab on
the right above the trigger. Fitted with a pair of checkered
plastic grips. Includes custom wood display case.
CONDITION: Excellent, retaining 95% original blue finish
with light edge wear, fading and light spotting on the grip
frame, and crisp grip checkering. The case is very good
with a missing latch. Mechanically excellent.
Estimate: 2,250 - 3,500
