    4 mm Ammo

    I have an old German single-shot pistol. Where can I buy some 4 mm ammo?

    RWS hasn't responded to my inquiry.

    You can't. 4mm ammo isn't made any more. If you did find any it'd be collector stuff.
    There were all kinds of odd calibre firearms made for 'gallery' shooting(indoors) in late 19th Century Europe. Your's might be one of 'em, but there's no ammo.

    A contact in Berlin sent this:

    "It's quite popular here, even though the latest law changes introduced registration of the 4mm. Ammunition can only be purchased when showing the registration certification. It's the only alternative to having the weapon deactivated."

    The ammo is out there. It's a matter of getting some. Might not be possible.

    Here's my gun:

    Wow, a new caliber for me, every day something new I learn. Sounds like one of those backyard sparrow guns, I assume its a pretty low powered round.

    Did some reasearch, 4.5 MM is also known as .177 AKA "BB's". I would asume that they are as the old original CB caps from RWS. a shot rimfire case ( 22 caliber, no powder ) with a small 22 lead ball. Except in the above case it iwould be a very small .177 rimfire case. A small primer powered lead BB. Remember the old Wamo guns that used a capgun "cap" to propell a BB about 10 feet. the 4.5 would seem to be a bit more powerfull, perhaps enought for a charging Tit Mouse. But if that;s all you have, then that's all you have.
