I wonder if it has anything to do with people who did Bergmann No3 mentioned in this thread:

The Borchardt C93 is resin cast model use silicon mold. The stock is made of resin, too.
Only one cartridge is loaded from ejection port and eject by spring tension.
The magazine is only dummy, no capable cartridges, made of solid resin.

Produced by Gan Sumikichi and released in end of 2007. The price was JPY 39,000.
I suppose its product number is about 20 or 30.
He produced various models though stopped at all now.

Great stuff, there's a few i'd like there in my collection:
The Gyrojet.
The internally silenced (piston ammo) Russian "Spetsnaz" pistol.
The Italian underwater gun.
The German "Mauser" "Zig Zag" revolver - I bid on one of these at an auction recently and it went for silly money.

Really fun stuff.

Good to know i'm not the only person likes these less talked about models.

Nothing wrong with 1911s or Berettas, or SAA's of course.

Higu-san,

Thank you for excellent information!
It is very appreciated.
Gan Sumikichi appears to have done a lot of work on models, his page shows many of them!
It is great to learn that he made less-known ones.

PS: auction ended, model sold for 60000 JPY (~750 USD).
