AMAI-M16-1085-1.JPG

This is a 1/2 scale Armalite M16A1 made by American Miniature Arms, Inc. of Windsor, Vermont.  19 7/16" 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!  Very limited quantities available.

DeWalt-matchlock-battle-axe-1.JPG

This is a 1/4 scale matchlock pistol combination battle axe by an unknown maker.  I thought it was an unmarked Ron DeWalt, but Ron tells me he didn't make it.    Maybe an Agnoletto?, but it doesn't have his normal markings either.  7 1/16" long overall with a 3 1/8" barrel with about a .12 caliber bore.  All steel construction and finished in the white.  Fully functional and will probably shoot.  Excellent workmanship!

Barrett-1873-Springfield-carbine-15192-1.JPG

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.

Price:  $3,850.00

Panzerfaust-1.JPG

This is a neat 1/2 scale World War II 60mm German Panzerfaust made by master miniature maker Vic Williams.  The Panzerfaust is a one shot portable grenade launcher used primarily for taking out tanks.  27 9/16" long overall.  The grenade part of this is turned from a solid aluminum billet.  The grenade body measures 6 1/2" long and the largest diameter is about 2 7/8" and has a Nazi dirty bird on the forward end.  There is a shaft with fold-able fins inside the tube that deploy when the Panzerfaust is fired.  The tube body is 29/32" in diameter and 16 1/8" long.  Finish is OD green paint with stencilled red paint markings.  There is a decal on the grenade with firing instructions.  The sight has graduated markings for distance.  This piece is mechanically functional but of course there is no propellant or explosive charge.  You can pull the split ring which will remove the cotter pin.  You can then configure the sight to the desired distance, and pull the grenade out to see the propellant body and fins.  Complete with the tan canvas carry bag with German markings.  Vic made four of these and this is number three.  Really well done!
