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.

onethirdHeasmanaircanegun.jpg

This is a super 1/3 scale pneumatic can gun cased with accessories made by master miniature builder Gordon Heasman in England.  Fully functional and firing.  A fantastic set with every tool and accessory you would need to shoot.    This exact miniature featured on page 9 of Imperial Russian Armory's 1997 sixteen page color catalog.  The air gun is in two pieces, the air chamber and the barrel which screw together.  Has an bone pistol grip handle that can be unscrewed and replaced with the bone rifle stock.  It is a rifle, or you can unscrew the barrel liner and it converts into a shotgun.  Includes the air pump that has both a blue steel foot handle and a bone hand handle.  Accessories include the pliers type bullet mold, patch cutter, a rifle cleaning rod, a shotgun cleaning rod. the key for cocking the mechanism, a spanner wrench for disassembling the air chamber, and a large quantity of properly sized lead balls.  The leathers in the air pump are dried out and will need to be cleaned and oiled in order to charge the air cylinder.  The bone rifle stock has a couple of small cracks at the end that threads onto the air chamber.  Otherwise, this piece is in near mint condition.  To operate this, you would screw the pump into the air chamber, screw one of the handles onto the other end, then pump up the air chamber.  You would then screw the barrel to the air chamber and fit either the pistol grip or the rifle stock.  You would then load the barrel.  You then take the key and insert it into a hole in the air chamber.  Turning the key cocks the gun.  There is then a small button that when puched shoots the gun.  Multiple shots can be fired on one charge of the air chamber.  One of only six made.

4-Miniartthird94Wincarbines-1.JPG

Here are four different 1/3 scale special order Winchester Model 1894 carbines made by Miniart in Russia.  These are all probably one a kind pieces, at least are the only ones I know of, and 99% of the miniart miniatures came through my hands.  All have the proper upper tang markings and proper barrel markings.  The steel parts are polished blue, and the stocks are highly figured American walnut.  Checkered hammer spurs, typical carbine rear sights, carbine buttplates.  These are absolutely fully functional and will include two rounds each of solid brass dummy ammunition that can be loaded into the magizine and will feed, chamber, extract, and eject.  The lever safety is also functional.  An outstanding value!  Most of the photos are of the 15" carbine as they are typically exactly the same except for the barrel and magazine lengths.  The exception one of the last photos is a photo of one of the short magazine 20" barrel carbines front sight.  If you are interested in one of these, let me know exactly which one & I'll be happy to email you photos of the exact piece you are interested in.
