CORP who made this pistol. The Sharpshooter is a pretty awesome little gun! This Sharpshooter pistol, made in La Jolla, California in 1937 and later the company was bought out by Berry Brow Enterprises and moved to Line Lexington, Pennsylvania in 1960.This is the final model which is plain blue and has no grips at all, just raised stampings of the metal gun frame. Its not just a simple gun its also a sophisticated flyswatter! 6 chilled lead birdshot, and ads for the gun claimed you can hit a fly at 16 feet with this gun. In Fletchers report, he actually landed four out of five shots into a fly-sized target at 10 feet.
When he used multiple rubber bands on his gun, he got velocities up to 158 f. With a single band, you get just over 100 f.Stoegers 1950 Shooters Bible said the shot measured 0.118, which makes The Sharpshooter a. A slingshot with a trigger & a barrel. The gun throws the tiny ball like a slingshot launches its projectile. A plastic launcher mechanism rides a rail to keep it straight, and the ball is forced by acceleration into a small seat in the back of the mechanism. Apparently thats what gives the gun its accuracy. While Ive never hit a fly with my gun, the shots go predictably to the same place time after time. I suspect there is more accuracy in the gun than most people might believe.
