Well really nothin extremely unique,
Mendi was an inexpensive import from back in the mid 70's an 80's.
The same pistol was imported by several, they where avaiable finished and in kit form.
Current value of a funtioning piece with a good bore would be $50-100 depending on your region.
Buy some powder an caps, some.440 ball, .010 thick pre-lubed patch and have some fun.
about 30grns of powder is a good start, any more will just make more noise and undo pressure
