    When I learn how to make blanks for it I will be sure to try to get a video demo of it. I have two it came with. I'd rather keep them than use them.

    Think you can modify that to shoot live rounds?

    Yes, fairly certain.

    I'm not a ballistic/bullet/firearm design expert, but I don't think it would be possible, and if it were converted one would most likely need a manufacturer license.

    I remember something similar back in the late 60’s early 70’s made for firing tear gas cartridges and blanks.

    Here is a website showing similar pen guns

    What would the purpose of a blank-firing pencil be?

    I used to have one of those listed on that website labeled "Colt Industries Tear Gas Pen Gun 38 cal". They shot a .38 round that was very short and were wadded with wax. I never shot it, but carried it in my car for awhile. I bought it in the early 70s....

    Yepper, Tear Gas Pen.
    I have one similar (with the exact same firing mechanism) and mine fires off signal flares.

    Thanks! I didn't see one that looked like the one I had, but really cool stuff.

    Cool, any reason why you never shot it?

    Back before I retired and was flying with the navy, we had something similar in our survival vest called a pencil flare. It shot a .38 caliber flare round, but could also be used to shoot a .38 SPL bullet (not recommended by the the riggers however).

    We still use pencil flares. I have no idea how you'd get a .38 SPL in there though. The flare screws in, and there would be nothing to hold a cartridge. However, we did shoot a flare at a tin shed, and it went through 2 layers of sheet metal.

    The mechanism and knurling look exactly like the EIG pen guns on the same site but different page that msgt posted:
