Uberti-W-Colt-SAA-4.75-SL-2916-1.JPG

 !!!!!ON HOLD!!!!!

I call this the "Engraver's Special!

 Note smokeless powder frame! 

This is a 47% scale miniature Colt Single Action Army revolver model of 1873 with 4 3/4" barrel.  Also known as the "Peacemaker" and the "Frontier six Shooter".  Fully functional, but non-firing.  4 7/8" long overall with a 2 3/16" .21 caliber rifled barrel.  Made by Uberti in Italy.  The caliber marking 45 CAL is stamped on the left rear side of the triggerguard, two patent dates stamped on the left front of the frame. The serial number 2916 is stamped on the frame & triggerguard.  916 is stamped into the backstrap.  16 is stamped into the loading gate.  Finished in the white with beautiful highly figured burl walnut grips.  Checkered hammer spur.  Nickel silver front sight.  Rare smokeless frame with oval ejector rod button and the spring loaded plunger that releases the cylinder pin.  Fully functional, but non-firing.  Mint condition.  These were special ordered from Uberti in the white to be finished here in U.S., and actually cost more than a finished miniature!  None of the parts have been hardened, so they will be easier to engrave.  If you've ever wanted to build your dream miniature Colt SAA, or exactly copy your full size SAA, here's the chassis to build it on!  I can change the barrel to a 5 1/2" or a 7 1/2" on request for an additional $75.00.

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

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/

!!!!!SOLD!!!!!

This is a 1/2 scale M-1 Thompson by the legendary Edmund de la Garrigue.  16" long overall with a 5 1/4" rifled barrel of .25 caliber.  Parkerized finished steel parts, oiled finished walnut stocks.  This is a non-firing model.  Some of these were registered class III fully automatic firing weapons.  There is a firing pin bump on the bolt face, but there is no chamber cut, no extractor, and no ejector.  The magazine is a solid block of steel with a more correct thin profile, and the magazine release spring is there, which is unusual as it is nearly always missing on these.  The sides of the receiver properly and deeply roll stamped.  Marked on the left side of the upper receiver ""EDMUND H. DE LA GARRIGUE, SR., MAKER" in two lines.  Serial number 103.   Excellent near mint condition showing only very minor handling wear and a few small freckles to the finish.  There are a lot of stories about Mr. de la Garrigue, but he is most famously known as the inventor of the Grizzly single action army revolver.  There is an out of print book about Mr. de la Garrigue called "Artistry in Single Action" by Halton Henderson.  Only 450 copies were printed, so they are very rare, expensive, and difficult to find.  The book documents these miniature Thompsons as well as several other miniatures made by Mr. de la Garrigue.

Ripoli-Colt-revolving-rifle-1.JPG

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!

Weston-BelMex-3mm-CF-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!!

This is a 1/2 scale BelMex 3mm centerfire single shot side swing derringer made by the famous Tom P. Weston of Mexico City, Mexico in the 1950's - 1960's.  The 3mm centerfire examples are much rarer than their 2mm rimfire counterparts, and are seldom seen or offered for sale.  They take a special proprietary cartridge made especially for these by Weston. The cargridges are externally primed, and all I have ever seen have been blanks.  The cases are copper with a distinct rim.  He head of the cartridge has a slight depression and a hole in the center.  The priming compound is smeared into the depression when wet and allowed to dry.  This compound is something akin to the end of a strike anywhere kitchen match, and when hit by the hammer ignites, setting off the poweer charge in the cartridge.  These 3mm centerfire BelMex pistols are easily recognised by the distinctive firing pin and the larger bore diameter.  2 1/4" long overall with a 1 5/16" barrel of .112 caliber.  Bright fire blue finished steel with two piece rosewood grips with a single screw entering from the left side.  Serrated hammer spur and trigger.  Fully functional action with a crisp strong hammer fall.  Complete with the original Weston red cardboard casing.  The casing interior bottom lined in a gold velour, the interior top lined in a white silk and marked with the Weston shop information.  Accessories include the original rosewood handled blue cleaning/ejector rod and an original translucent red capsule containing six original 3mm centerfire cartridges.  The gun has about 60% of the original fire blue finish, the balance turning a gray/brown patina.  The case is in nice condition showing mostly minor wear to the corners and edges, mostly at the rear hinge line.  The cleaning rod shows some minor freckling.  The red capsule is in good condition, but the rounds inside are corroded and most likely will not fire, which is normal for these.

!!!!!SOLD!!!!!

This is a pair of the very tiny Anders & Dworsky tip up barrel percussion cap pistols.  The pistols are cased in a round brass hinged top casing with friction latch, the top which is partially black enameled.  The interior is lined in red velvet, the bottom French fitted for the two pistols with a small circular area to hold the caps.  The bottom of the case is stamped "CHARLES OF THE RITZ N.Y. DISTRIBUTORS" in a circular pattern The pistols look to be new and unfired.  The case has a small chip in the enamel on the top.  Includes three of the original caps.  These are referred to as A17 in Bob Urso's book, "The Tiniest Guns, Third Edition".  The following quoted from the book with permission:  "OAL 7/8", Nickel plated brass, black plastic checkered grips.  This tiny pistol is not a true pinfire, however, because it is probably the smallest shootable pistol ever produced - it fires a white plastic percussion like cap - it is sought after by berloque collectors.  This model ceased production around 1970.  Manufactured by Goebharter.  The design of the Anders & Dworsky is very unusual.  The hammer and trigger are one piece, and the backstrap of the grips is actually a spring.  ...To fire the pistol, the gun is squeezed between the trigger, and the back of the grip.  This compresses the grip/spring, releasing the hammer.

Smith of Florida.  The serial numbers are 322 and 323, and both are the long barrel versions that Larry made.  If you know anything about Larry Smith Patersons, you know how rare these deluxe ones are, especially as a cased pair with the long barrels!  Each revolver is 4 3/16" long overall with a 2 1/2" octagon barrel of .121 caliber.  The barrels, cylinders, wedges, triggers, and screws are a high polished rust blue.  The frames are silver plated yellow brass.  The hammers are finished in the white.  Beautiful two piece mother of pearl grips with two yellow brass rivets securing them to the grip frame.  The barrel has five inlaid silver bands, one at the muzzle, two at the breech, and one on each step of the underlug.  The cylinder has two inlaid silver bands.  Typical of these Larry Smith Patersons, the triggers do not fold, and the cylinders must be hand indexed.  The hammers have both half and full cock.  Both are chambered for and will fire the 2mm pinfire cartridges.  Complete with the original Larry Smith mahogany hinged top casing with slide latch, and the original accessories.  The accessories include a three legged blue bullet mold with walnut handles that cast a single round lead ball, a walnut handled brass cleaning rod with brass ferrule, a brass non-functional single spout powder flask, and two brass lift top cap tins with green Eley labels, one of which has some minor scuffing.  The powder flask top unscrews and is used to hold the 2mm pinfire ammo.  When the top is removed, there is an exposed rod which is used to remove the spent cartridges.  One of the cap tins is empty, the other has a small quantity of round cloth cleaning patches.  Serial number 322 shows about 95% original blue with some very fine etching mostly on the barrel.  The frame shows about 75% of the original silver plating, overall I'd call it 90+%.  Serial number 323 shows 99+% original blue and about 15% of the original silver plating, I'd call it 90+% also.  The case shows only minor handling wear with a few very light scratches, the bottom stamped with the makers mark and the serial numbers.  The interior is French fit ,and lined in a burgundy velour.  The accessories are near mint.

Little-45-2081-engraved-23.JPG

 !!!!!SOLD!!!!!

 An engraved "Little 45" by American Miniature Gun & Cartridge Co. of Hollywood, Ca. circa 1956 - 1960.  Original cost on one of these in 1957 was about $80.00!  Engraved, nickel plated and gold plated finish with two piece mother of pearl grips.  The hammer, triggerguard, cylinder pin, ejector rod, and screws were gold plated, the balance nickel plated.  Very rare and only the fourth one I've ever seen!  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 cracks in two places near the case mouth.  Near mint condition except for some loss of the gold wash on the small parts, mostly on the triggerguard and hammer, I'd call it 95%.  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."

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!

!!!!!SOLD!!!!!

This is a neat miniature fixed blade knife made from a penny by C.W. Shoemaker.  Pennies today are made from copper plated zinc, so when the kinife shape is cut out and the blade profiled, the copper is removed revealing the white zinc blade.  The guard shows the original copper plate.  Bone grips are held in place with two tiny copper pins.  The blade hand engraved C.W. Shoemaker on the left side.  These are all hand made and no two are exactly alike.  Stock photos, yours may look slightly different.  Comes in a protective lift top plastic capsule.

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is a a beautiful 1/3 scale Gatling Gun Model of 1893 police or bulldog chambered for the .22 short rim fire cartridge.  Complete with the Accles 64 round drum magazine.  This Gatling was made by the renown Karl Furr in Utah in the 1970's.  This Gatling stands 19 1/4" tall with the magazine in place.  The Barrel group is 10 13/16" long not counting the crank handle or bolt access plug.  Made from beautifully polished yellow brass with six rifled steel barrels and steel internal working parts.  Solid brass tripod mount is adjustable for both elevation and traverse.  Serial # XX.  Fully functional and shoot-able.  Unlike most Gatling guns, the police or bulldog model had the crank handle on the rear instead of on the left side.  Condition is near mint.  Seldom seen or offered for sale.  The Furr Gatlings are far and away the best on the market and are the Rolls Royce of miniature Gatling guns.

FurrThird1883Gatling23-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is a 1/3 scale  Model 1883 Gatling gun on a brass field carriage made by the renown Karl Furr of Orem, Utah.  Chambered in .22 short rimfire, this actually shoots and will fire up to 800 rounds per minute.  Must be sent to an FFL dealer.  64 round Accles drum magazine.  18" diameter wheels with beautiful highly figured black walnut spokes, brass hubs, and brass tires.  This is a very early Furr 1883 Gatling, serial # 09, and is signed on the bottom in engraving pencil "Made by, Karl J. Furr, No 9, Paul J. Kuni, Orem, Ut. 1969" in five lines.  The barrel group measures 18 1/2" long not counting the tiller handle.  10 .22 caliber rifled barrels enclosed in a brass casing.  The rear of the barrel group has two spirit levels for leveling the gun.  This is not classed as a class III machine gun. If you can own a rifle, shotgun, or pistol, you can legally own this masterpiece in most states!  The brass looks to have never been polished, and has a nice mellow mustard color.  Really great, possibly unfired condition.  The only problem is the cascabelle knob on the rear of the gun is missing.  I am having a new one made, but it will be about 6 - 8 weeks before I receive it.  Additional photos soon.  Buy it quick before they implement a high capacity magazine ban!
