This is a 1/3 scale flintlock Kentucky rifle by master miniature maker Art Holly. 21 1/16"
long overall with a 15" part octagon part round rifled barrel of .22 caliber. The barrel is browned, and bored
through to the touch hole. The lockplate, hammer, pan, & frizzen are case hardened in colors. Fire blue frizzen
spring. The lock lightly engraved and marked in script capitol letters what looks to be LAH. The hammer with both
half and full cock, with a very light crisp trigger pull. Nice high quality engraved brass furniture. Engraved
manually opened brass patchbox marked 1787. The top of the barrel signed A. Holly. Nice silver wire inlays into
the stock on both sides of the forearm just ahead of the lock and on both sides of the buttstock. The barrel held in place
with four pins, each of which had an engraved brass escutcheon on both sides. The brass nosecap is swelled toward the
muzzle giving the appearance of a swamped barrel. The rear sight is fire blued and dovetailed in place. The front
sight is brass and is fixed. There is a brass band inlaid into the rear of the barrel near the tang. The stock
is a beautiful highly figured fiddleback maple with moderate carving of excellent quality, and a raised cheekpiece on
the left side. There is a brass inlay in the cheekpiece with a silver flower inlay inside it, which has an abalone center. Three
ramrod thimbles. Hickory ramrod with brass tip. A pretty rifle with great lines by a great highly collected maker.
Art Holly miniature rifles are very seldom offered for sale.

BARGAIN ON THE PLANET!!!!!

long overall with a 10 1/2" barrel of about .11 caliber. Blackened Parkerized steel and alloy parts.
Black plastic stock & forearm. Hard rubber buttplate. Looks to be fully functional as all the internals are
there and the magazine looks good. Unfortunately, no dummies came with these. This one is serial # 10XX, and they
are all individually numbered. Very limited quantities. If you like miniatures, and this type firearm, your insane
if you don't buy one of these!

Just back from Roger Sampson, now with lettering, proof marks, inspectors marks, sight graduations, the engraved
lockplate eagle, hammer checkering, and the stock cartouches!!!
This is a 1/2 scale 1873 Springfield trapdoor saddle ring carbine made by master miniature maker Mike
Barrett of Minnesota. 20 3/8" long overall with a 10 5/8" rifled .22 caliber barrel. All steel parts
are finished in a beautiful rust blue. Highly figured American walnut stock. All of the lettering, proof marks,
sight graduations, the spread winged eagle on the lockplate, hammer checkering, and the stock cartouches were hand engraved
by master engraver Roger Sampson of Minnesota. Unlike the later Springfield trapdoors, the 1873's had a blued trap door
instead of case colored. This piece is serial numbered 15192, which would put in right in the middle of the "Custer
- Little Big Horn Battle" trapdoor carbines! Roger did an outstanding job on all facets of the markings, and also
arranged to have the proper rust blue finish done. Check out the 30 detailed photos! Fully functional, but non-firing
as there is no chamber cut into the breech end of the barrel. Includes a great mahogany finger jointed hinged top casing
with magnetic latches. The interior is French fit in a brick red felt.

This is an outstanding 1/3
scale antique air rifle by master miniature maker Ron DeWalt. Additional photos soon!
This is a gorgeous 47% scale
miniature Winchester Model 1866 carbine made by Uberti in Italy. 18" long overall with a 9" .21 caliber rifled barrel.
The brass frame, sideplates, cartridge lifter, and buttplate have been very tastefully engraved in a pattern common to the
Winchester 1866 by master engraver George Sherwood. The varnished walnut stocks have been expertly checkered in a point pattern
by master checkerer Jim Corpe. Blue finished steel parts except for the hammer, lever, and trigger which have been case colored
by Doug Turnbull. Flip two leaf carbine rear sight. Trapdoor in the buttplate for cleaning rod storage. The two line barrel
address lazer engraved on the top of the barrel. Serial # 81 marked on the lower tang. The engraver's marking engraved on
the lower tang under the lever. The brass on these is normally gold plated, but this one has had the plating striped, so it
should start to get a nice aged patina in a few years. A very pretty rifle and historicaly accurate.
