Metal Detecting from Auckland New Zealand since November 2010.
Coin shooting, relics and curios.
A place to record and share
some of the finds and experiences
of an enthusiastic amateur metal detectorist using a Minelab E Trac initially and now since Easter 2015 a Minelab CTX 3030.
The pistol I found today is indeed a starting pistol made by Rohm of Germany.
The model is an RG2 and fires .22 blanks.
I dont have an age of the gun except that Rohm started making starting pistols and flare guns in the early 1950's. This one was found at about 15cm deep.
A good one -
My not so good one -
The other side has a large cut across it which I assume is from a mower blade.
