Berselli-repeating-flintlock-pistol-1.JPG

 This is a mid 1700's self priming, self loading, self cocking, 21 shot flintlock REPEATING pistol, as made by Giacomo Berselli of Bologna, Italy.  Maker unknown, but obviously a master at his craft!  This has to be the absolute coolest, neatest miniature of an antique pistol I have ever seen!  It is almost mind boggling that they were making pistols like this back in that time period.  This pistol is an improvement on the earlier Lorenzoni pistol that was invented in the early 1700's in Italy.  See a video of the Lorenzoni pistol here:  http://www.forgottenweapons.com/lorenzoni  The pistol operates thusly:  The buttcap is hinged, and when opened reveals a sliding door, and a screw.  Proper sized round lead balls are put into the opening with the sliding cover.  Loose powder is put into the opening revealed when the screw is removed.  There is a compartment with a door underneath the pan which when opened you would put the priming powder into.  There is a round rotating brass drum in the middle of the pistol just ahead of the hammer with a lever on the left side.  The drum has two cavities.  With the muzzle pointing down, the lever is rotated down and forward, loading a powder charge and a lead ball into the drum.  Simultaneously, there is a cavity in the drum that is picking up a priming charge for the pan.  As the lever is moved further forward, the pan is charged with priming powder.  On the right side of the brass drum, just under the priming powder compartment with the lever in the firing position, is what I will call a cam for lack of a better description.  As the lever is continued forward, the pan is charged, the cam closes the 
frizzen, then engages a lever that cocks the hammer.  The lever on the left side of the pistol is then rotated back to the initial position.  The ball, then the powder charge, are dropped into the
chamber during this process, and the pistol is ready to fire.  Fire the pistol, rotate the lever back & forth, and fire again, much like a lever action Winchester, 21 times!

6 5/8" long overall with a 3 13/16" smoothbore barrel.  All metal parts are steel, finished in the white,  The pistol is expertly and generously engraved, see photos.  The lockplate is marked BERSELLI BOLOGNA just behind the hammer.   The two piece wood stock is some light colored wood that has been painted or stained to simulate ebony.  The action functions flawlessly, and is just a wonder to behold!  Complete with a much later hinged top blue leather casing with two folding latches.  The interior French fit.  The interior bottom lined in a burgundy velvet, the interior lid lined in burgundy silk.  Excellent condition only showing some minor scuffs to the stock finish.  I believe this piece to be if not antique, then at least very old, and was probably made in Italy.  Could possibly be a journeyman test piece.  This type of pistol would have been owned by only the most wealthy people of the period, most likely royalty.  Truly a once in a lifetime kind of piece!!!

Little-45-3272-1.JPG

 This is a "Little 45" by American Miniature Gun & Cartridge Co. of Hollywood, Ca. circa 1956 - 1960.  Original cost on one of these in 1957 was about $40.00!   NIckel plated finish with two piece mother of pearl grips.  Mechanically perfect, with none of the problems normally associated with these.  Trigger guard works perfectly as the trigger and the loading gate functions perfectly and neither is cracked.  Original case and plastic bullet cap container, the brass colored case of the container has some minor cracks near the case mouth.  Inside are seven original caps and the original cotton wadding to keep them from ratling around.   Good condition except for some bubbling on the nickel, mostly on the cylinder, I'd call it 85%.  Described in Bob Urso's book, The Tiniest Guns, Third Edition, as U-20.  The following quoted from Bob Urso's book, used with permission:

Manufactured by the American Miniature Gun Mfg. Co. of Hollywood, California, and marketed as the Frontier "45".  On much of it's literature it was also referred to as the "Little 45".  A difficult to classify miniature, although modeled after the Colt Frontier Single Action revolver, it is not a true miniature gun.The Frontier "45" is a six shot, single action, revolver with a hand rotated barrel.  At 3 1/2" OAL, this little beauty is much nicer than a toy, but not quite a miniature.  Manufactured in the 1950's it has more detail, and is more functional than the best of the toy miniatures.  It's cylinder rotates.  It has half and full cock.  It has a flip down, side loading gate, and fires brass, percussion cap-like ammunition.  Expended shells are ejected with a functioning spring loaded ejector, just like on the real thing.  It is unusual in that the complete trigger guard acts as its trigger and is pulled back to fire.  This part is delicate, and many of these guns are found with the tab that holds the trigger assembly in place broken.  The clean finish on these guns suggest that they are sturdy little pieces, They were however, cast in a pot metal.  It is the care that was taken in finishing these guns that makes them look more substantial than they actually are.  A full page ad that appeared in the 1955 edition of the Gun digest special Antique and Used Modern Guns Catalog, list a hand engraved, gold plated model for $100.00.  They were also available in nickel plated.  This is a popular gun with collectors and a relatively difficult gun to find.  Prices are considerably higher than for even the best of the toy miniatures such as Armodelli or Hubley guns.  ...  The most unique aspect of this gun is the spring loaded sear on the trigger assembly.  Singe the trigger slides back and forth, rather than pivoting on a pin, it was necessary to pivot the sear in order that it catch the notch in the trigger."

Urso-Model-1-Kolibri-1.JPG

 This is a 2mm pinfire pistol made by noted miniature maker Bob Urso of Washington state, author of the ultimate reference on Berloque and 2mm pinfire miniatures, The Tiniest Guns.  He calls this model the Kolibri Model 3.  Description from Bob's website, used with permission.  "Above is my version of the Franz Pfannl designed Kolibri Model 1, as advertised in the 1939 Stoger Catalogue. The Model is 1-5/8" OAL.   All parts are nickel plated steel.  The grips emulate the original Kolibri grips, and  are marked "KOLIBRI" on one side and "AUSTRIA" on the other. They are hand shaped, gold plated, etched copper.  This is a 2mm RIMfire not a pinfire. Due to the age of any available 2mm rimfire cartridges, I can not guarantee that this gun will shoot."  Includes the original black plastic lift top glass topped casing.  Serial # 16.  More info on Bob's website at http://www.boburso.com/

This is a 2mm pinfire pistol made by noted miniature maker Bob Urso of Washington state, author of the ultimate reference on Berloque and 2mm pinfire miniatures, The Tiniest Guns.  He calls this model the Stevens Tip Up.  Description from Bob's website, used with permission.  "2-7/8"  OAL The Steven's Tip Up is based on the well known Steven's target pistol.  It is faithful to the original design, even down to the Side button barrel release. The only accommodations to the original is that this is a 2mm pinfire, and due to it's small size, the spring design had to be modified.  The frame, trigger and hammer are nickel plated cast brass.  The barrel is steel.  The grips are ebony."   Serial # 13.  This gun comes cased in a clear covered plastic box with diecut, foam rubber insert.  This model is no longer in production.  More info on Bob's website at http://www.boburso.com/

This is a 2mm pinfire pistol made by noted miniature maker Bob Urso of Washington state, author of the ultimate reference on Berloque and 2mm pinfire miniatures, The Tiniest Guns.  He calls this model the five shot pepperbox.  Description from Bob's website, used with permission.  "1-3/4"  OAL Here is my long promised 5-shot, 2mm, pinfire, pepperbox.  I've had the cast frames for over a year,  but have waited to release this model until I figured out how to index the barrel.  After several designs,  I went for the simplest approach and use the screw-on barrel lock to hold the barrel in place.  The frame, bar hammer and ring trigger are all  nickle plated cast brass.  The barrel, which is removed for loading,  is steel, which I plumb-brown to give it a nice antique look.  So far I've only made this gun with Ironwood grips.  This is a hard wood from the deserts of Arizona, which  has a tight grain and  takes an excellent high polish.  I can also make this gun with any of the other grip materials found on my other guns,  but the ironwood with the plumb-brown barrel contrasts nicely with the nickel frame and makes for a beautiful mini."  Serial # 4.  Includes the original Urso black plastic lift top casing with glass top.  More info on Bob's website at: http://www.boburso.com

Urso-2mm-pinfire-High-Standard-1.JPG

This is a 2mm pinfire pistol made by noted miniature maker Bob Urso of Washington state, author of the ultimate reference on Berloque and 2mm pinfire miniatures, The Tiniest Guns.  He calls this model the High Standard.  Description from Bob's website, used with permission.  "1-5/8"  OAL , I've always liked the contemporary profile of the High Standard pistols and this is my attempt at a 2mm pinfire version.  The action is based on the Kobold, berloque pistol, manufactured in Germany, between the two world wars.  It is interesting for several reasons.  First of all it is an underhammer pistol, with the pin of the cartridge facing down into the gun.  Secondly,  the wide, heavy hammer does double duty as the guns breech.  Finally, as shown in the photo above, the trigger is actually the front grip-strap.  All parts are nickel plated steel.  The grips are ivory."  Serial # 2.  Includes the black plastic glass topped case.  More info on Bob's website at: http://www.boburso.com/

Little-45-1956-1.JPG

This is a "Little 45" by American Miniature Gun & Cartridge Co. of Hollywood, Ca. circa 1956 - 1960.  Original cost on one of these in 1957 was about $50.00!  Nickel plated finish with two piece mother of pearl grips.  This one is a parts gun, as like many, the front part of the triggerguard is broken.  It is in pieces as shown.  It is in very nice condition and you might use the triggerguard from a lesser condition piece to repair this and have a nice one.  It does have a good loading gate and ejector assembly which are broken on many of these.  Includes the original case and the brass colored case part of the original cartridge cap container.  Described in Bob Urso's book, The Tiniest Guns, Third Edition, as U-20.  Sold "AS-IS.

Gilbert-Ball-European-FL-pistol-LC42-1.JPG

This is a 1/3 scale French flintlock martial pistol made by Gilbert Ball of France.  5 1/2" long overall with a 3 1/8" part octagon part round smoothbore barrel of .267 caliber.  These pistols were first issued in 1800 and were in use during the Napoleonic wars.  Steel lock assembly except for the pan which is yellow brass.  The barrel, ramrod, trigger, front band retainer, part of the triggerguard, and screws are steel finished in the white.  The balance of the furniture is yellow brass with a nice aged patina.  The hammer has both half and full cock, with a nice crisp action.  The barrel is bored through to the touch hole.  The ramrod is finely threaded on the end concealed in the pistol.  One piece straight grained walnut stock.  Nicely made and capable of firing given the proper flint, powder charge, and ball.  Complete with a nice walnut glass topped casing, the interior French fit and lined in a dark teal velour.  I believe these to be a real bargain!

Gilbert-Ball-Phily-Derr-ivory-peanut-LC-43-1.JPG

This is a 1/2 scale ivory stocked Philadelphia Derringer made by Gilbert Ball of France.  3 1/8" long overall with a 1 3/16" smoothbore octagon barrel.  This is a 1/2 scale miniature of one of the smallest Henry Derringers commonly called the "Peanut".  I guess you could also call it a 1/3 scale miniature of one of his larger Derringers.  The steel parts have a fire blue finish.  Sterling silver furniture.  The ivory stock shows a really nice aged patina and a very obvious grain pattern.  The hammer has both half and full cock with a crisp action.  The fire blue finish is starting to silver, mostly just on the barrel.  The ivory stock has several age cracks, none of which compromises the structure of the stock.  The silver parts show some darkening from oxidation which is normal.  Complete with a beautiful burl wood hinged top casing, the interior bottom French fit and lined in a dark teal velour.

miquelet-flintlock-1.JPG

This is an antique miquelet flintlock rifle by an unknown maker probably dating to the mid 1700's.  This may be a miniature, or could be just a small gun.  Though the stock looks like that of a rifle, it very well may actually be a pistol.  Confused?  Me too!  8 3/4" long overall with a 3 5/8" octagon smoothbore barrel of about .32 caliber.  Beautifully carved ebony one piece stock.  All the metal parts are steel.  The piece is very ornately engraved.  The stock has some damage in several areas which are shown in the photos.  The hammer has both half and full cock.  A very rare and early piece.  Miquelet flintlocks are very rarely seen for sale, especially one in miniature!
