This is a 1/3 scale special order Winchester Model
1894 "Trapper" carbine with 14" barrel made by Miniart in Russia. 10 13/16" long overall with a
4 11/16" barrel of .10 caliber. Blue finished steel parts, walnut stock and forearm, with some really nice figure
in the stock. The proper upper tang markings and barrel markings have been laser engraved. The serial # 005
laser engraved on the bottom front of the receiver. Checkered hammer spurs, typical carbine ladder rear sight,
carbine buttplate. This piece is absolutely 100% fully functional and includes three rounds
of solid brass dummy ammunition that can be loaded into the magazine and will feed, chamber, extract,
and eject. The lever safety is also functional. An outstanding value! Complete with
a very nice walnut hinged top casing. The interior lined in a dark red velour, the bottom French fit. Condition
is 98 - 99% with just some very minor handling wear. There was a barely perceptible hairline crack in the butt
stock just behind the tang when I received this piece. I sent it to Larry Smith who expertly made the repair,
and is now stable and only visible under the close inspection. Priced accordingly.

This is a 1/2 scale miniature
Colt Root revolving sporting rifle made by master miniature maker Emil Ripoli of Washington State. 25 3/16" long
overall with a 15 5/8" part octagon part round rifled barrel of .210 caliber. The steel parts are finished in the
white with beautiful high quality engraving on the frame, barrel lug, cylinder, triggerguard, buttplate, and hammer.
Unfortunately, the engraver is unknown at this time, but I'm working on finding out who the engraver might be! The buttstock
and forearm are straight grained American walnut. The forearm, which is attached by one barrel key, has an ivory tip.
Neat dovetailed adjustable rear sight, and dovetailed blade type front sight. Checkered hammer spur and loading lever
release. The serial number "1" stamped into the upper stock tang. The top of the frame nicely hand engraved "COLT'S
PT., 1850" in two lines, then some symbol that I can't decipher, then "ADDRESS COL. COLT, HARTFORD CT USA"
in two lines. The rifle is in nice condition, but does have some very minor spots of surface rust in a few places.
It needs to be repolished, blued, and casecolored. The stock also has some minor dings and good use a refinish.
Mechanically, the hammer cocks with three clicks, but the cylinder does not properly index, probably a problem with the hand
that was common to the full size rifles. The ramrod with brass tip is not long enough to actually work, and may have
been broken off somewhere in the past. A great piece by a great maker, that just need someone to finish it up and make
it into a showpiece! I bought it right, so I'm selling it the same way!

perfect one-of-a-kind 1/2 scale miniature of Henry rifle serial #1 as presented to Edwin M. Stanton, secretary of war of the
United States, by the New Haven Arms Co. and Oliver F. Winchester. The rifle was engraved and personally presented to Stanton
in hopes of securing government contracts to purchase Heny rifles for the impending Civil War. This rifle was made by master
miniature maker Mike Barrett. The markings and engraving were all copied exactly by master engraver Roger Sampson, the action
tuned and metal prep done by the late Terry Farrand, the deep blue and firey case color work done by Doug Turnbull. A gorgeous
miniature in every regard and of great historical interest. The receiver scroll engraved on the right side, the left side
showing a panel with the presentation to Secretary to War Stanton. Octagon .22 caliber 11 3/4" rifled barrel. The stock
of super fancy dark figured walnut. The brass crescent buttplate features the trapdoor for the cleaning rod. Fully functional
and operates smooth as silk. The barrel is a beautiful high polish blued and the hammer and lever are casecolored. The brass
receiver, sideplates, and buttplate starting to show a very pretty patina. Please call or email me for additional photos of
this beautifull masterpiece.
