Bilbow-stone-crossbow-1.JPG

!!!!!ON HOLD!!!!!
 
This is a 1/4 scale stone throwing crossbow by master miniature maker Alan Bilbow.  The hand carved wood stock measures 9 1/4" long, the steel bow measures 6 1/4 across.  Unbelievable workmanship and attention to detail.  Fully functional and shoot-able!  Lots and lots of detail carving and sculpting of the metal parts.  Double braided bowstring.  I think the photos can tell the story better than I can.  This exact piece was previously on display at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Arts in New York City, when it was in the collection of Merrill Lindsay.  Mr. Lindsay was the curator of the museum at that time, and he also wrote the well known book "Miniature Arms".  This exact crossbow was also on display at the Eli Whitney Museum when it was in the collection of well known miniature collector and author Herschel Kopp.

ThreebarrelFLpistol-1.JPG

!!!!!SALE PENDING!!!!!

!!!!!12 New photos and much additional descriptive information added 7-10-2014!!!!!

This is a 1/4 scale flintlock three barrel pistol by an unknown maker.  2" long overall with a 3/4" long barrel group, the three round steel barrels of about .009 caliber.  Yellow brass frame, the balance of the parts are steel finished in the white.  The hammer and trigger are functuional, the hammer only having full cock.  There is a lever on the left side which would rotate a internal drum that was drilled in such a way that the top two barrels would fire, then the lever would be rotated to fire the bottom barrel.  There is a brass loop on the botom of the grip where it could be attached to a chain, and it was probably meant to be a watch fob or necklace pendant.  Excellent condition, the steel parts showing an aged gray patina and the brass showing a pleasing mellow aged patina.  Complete with a black leatherette clam shell jewelry type box casing.  The interior bottom French fit, and lined in a red velour.  The interior padded top and the hinge gap covered in an ivory colored silk.  I believe this piece to be quite old, but not antique.  Formerly in the Jerry Tralins and Kennith Whichard collections.

Smith-Rem-VP-112-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is a 1/2 scale Remington Vest Pocket derringer by Larry H. Smith of Florida.  2 1/8" long overall with a 1 11/16" barrel of .107 caliber.  This piece fires the 2mm thick rim rimfire cartridges.  The steel frame and barrel are fire blued.  The top of the barrel is marked "REMINGTONS ILLION, N.Y., PATENT OCT. 1,1861"  Yellow brass pin type front sight.  The serial number, 112, stamped into the bottom of the barrel just ahead of the trigger.  Although the piece was originally fire blued, only about 60% of the original blue remains.  The right side of the frame and the bottom of the barrel show some rust pitting. Nice two piece dark walnut grips with yellow brass escutcheons, and the screw entering from the left side.  Complete with the original Larry Smith walnut hinged top casing with push button latch.  The interior English fit and lined in a olive green felt.  The bottom of the case marked "-L.H.-, SMITH, VP - 112, RF" in four lines.  The LH Smith is very faint, but it is there.  The case exterior is in fine shape just showing some minor handling bruises.  The cloth lining of interior is rust stained in several places.  The cleaning rod and the 2mm rimfire blank cartridges are missing.  Mechanically excellent.  This piece is a victim of Hurricane Katrina.  It was not submerged, but was on a closet shelf in a house that flooded, and was not rescued for several days.  The cloth lining, especially the bottom, got damp, causing the finish loss & rust, the worst of which is on the right or non-showing side.  It would make a good project for someone with the skills to properly restore and refinish it.  No returns or refunds.  Priced accordingly.

This is a 1/2 scale DWM Navy Luger made by Miniart In Moscow, Russia.  5 5/16" long overall with a 2.9" barrel of .173 caliber.  Blue finish except for some of the small parts which are strawed.  Checkered walnut grips with a retaining screw at the bottom on both sides.  The top of the receiver in front of the bolt marked 1917.  The top of the toggle marked with the intertwined DWM logo and 89.  The adjustable rear sight has the 100 and 200 meter markings.  The side of the frame, the left side cover, and the rear of the toggle also marked 89.  The rear of the frame above the safety marked GESICHERT.  The takedown lever, magazine release, the sides of the rear sight, and the sides of the toggles are checkered.  The back of the front sight, the tops of the toggles, the top of the safety, and the top of the stock locking lever are serrated.  The body of the magazine is steel and finished in the white.  The magazine bottom in aluminum.  Complete with the original walnut detachable shoulder stock, a brown leather flap style holster, the walnut handled cleaning rod, and three rounds of solid steel dummy ammunition which will feed, chamber, extract, and eject when the action is manually operated.  The holster has the pocket for the takedown tool, but the tool is missing.  Near mint condition showing only the slightest signs of handling, I'd call it 99%.  You don't see very many of these with the small parts properly finished, and these were probably done by Larry Smith.

Antique-2mm-RF-revolver-Nickel-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!!
 
This is an antique 2mm rimfire double action six shot revolver, probably made in Germany or Belgium in the 1870's. This is a fully functional and shooting miniature revolver and shoots the antique thin rim 2mm rimfire cartridges. 1 15/16" long overall with a 13/16" barrel. Nicely engraved, nickel plated finish. Near mint condition with 95% original nickel plated finish finish with just some minor flaking of the nickel at the bottom of the front strap, the bottom of the grip strap around the lanyard ring, the hammer nose, and the front of the cylinder.  Will probably clean to look better. Two piece mother of pearl grips.  Complete with the original lanyard ring.  Also includes the original special tweezers type tool for loading the tiny 2mm rimfire cartridges into the cylinder, the original metal lift top box, and six rounds of the original antique thin rim 2mm rimfire ammunition.  The ammunition is around 130 years old, so it is not guaranteed to shoot, in fact, I highly recommend against it as these rounds are very corrosive, plus these rounds bring up to $35.00 each to cartridge and miniature collectors!  The box top has most of the original graphics scratched off for some reason, a real pity!  The sides and bottom of the box decorated in a black  and white checkerboard pattern.  The revolver works perfectly in both single and double action with a really crisp and strong action.  This is the first time I have ever offered one of these revolvers with the original loading tool and box!

Unknown-third-Colt-No-3-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!!
 
This is a 1/3 scale Colt number 3 derringer by an unknown maker.  1 13/16" long overall with a 31/32" barrel of .125 caliber.  The miniature is chambered for and will shoot the 2mm rimfire cartridges.  Blue barrel, hammer, trigger & screws.  Nickel plated brass frame.  Two piece ivory grips with yellow brass escutcheons and a single screw entering from the left side.  The top of the barrel hand engraved with the proper Colt barrel markings.  No other visible markings.  Checkered hammer spur.  Complete with a Larry Smith walnut hinged top casing, English fit, and lined in a burgundy velour.  Accessories include a blue cleaning rod with yellow brass handle and 9 rounds of 2mm rimfire blank ammunition.  The miniature is in nice condition, I'd call it 95%, but does have a small area of rust etching on the top of the barrel, and some rust on the hammer spur.  The case has problems.  The cloth hinge is broken, and the right side of the lid is missing.  I have never seen a miniature like this before, but the fit and finish are very good except that the grips have shrunk some leaving a gap between the grips and the frame.  I talked to Larry Smith about this peice.  He said he didn't make the miniature, but did make the case to order for a customer years ago.  He didn't know who made the miniature either.  The case is easily restorable by someone who has the skills, or if you buy it, I could send it to Larry Smith for restoration if you want.  He could also polish & re-blue the barrel & hammer if you wanted.

This is an antique percussion watch key pistol by an unknown maker, complete with the original antique pocket watch that it came with!  1 13/16" long overall with a 3/4" square bored barrel that fits the square winding shaft under the back cover of the pocket watch.  This is the most ornate one of these I have ever seen, and features a blue finish with gold and platinum inlays on the barrel, platinum inlays on the backstrap, a platinum bird on the right side of the frame, and a platinum deer on the left side of the frame.  One piece beautifully aged ivory grips with carving on both sides near the frame, and a platinum oval inset into the bottom of the grip.  The pistol has both half and full cock, and the trigger has a ring where the pistol may be attached to a watch chain as a watch fob.  Wonderful condition, the blue turning patina brown in places.  Fully functional, and with the proper percussion caps, this pistol will shoot.

The watch 1 15/16" in diameter and about 9/16" thick.  It has a push button on the stem to release the back cover.  The front cover has an extended tab where it can be opened.  The inside of the rear cover has several hallmarks.  The lion hallmark means it is sterling silver and was made in London.  The hallmark below and to the right means it was made in 1855, the JJ hallmark means it was made by John Jacob.  The other hallmark I do not know what it means.  The rear cover is also serial numbered 111090, with the third 1 and the 0 almost on top of each other.  When wound, the watch runs, but does not keep good time, so will need to be serviced if you want it to keep proper time.

A really neat set!

This is a 1/5 scale Colt 1911 A-1 made of solid 14K yellow gold by master jeweler Alex Baez of Los Angeles, Ca.  All parts are solid 14K gold with the exception of the grips which are ivory, the steel springs, and the solid brass dummy cartridges.  1 23/32" long overall with a 23/32" barrel.  The sides of the frame and slide are polished with the top and bottom being a matt finish.  Fully functional, this miniature will feed, chamber, extract, and eject the included six solid brass dummy cartridges.  Complete with the original Baez black velvet hinged top jewelry box casing with clear see through top and push button latch.  The interior lined in black velour.  The miniature has .7 ounces of 14K gold, which translates to a little more than .4 ounces of pure 24K gold.  So just the value of the gold alone is about $650.00 in today's market.

!!!!!SOLD!!!!!

This is a 1/4 scale Colt single action army revolver with 4 3/4" barrel made by Alex Baez and Herschel Kopp.  2 3/4" long overall with a 1 5/16" round barrel of about .010 caliber.  These revolvers were also known as the "Peacemaker" and the "Frontier Six Shooter".  The entire miniature is made of 14 karat white gold with the exception of the steel springs and two piece ivory grips.  100% mechanically fully functional, but non-firing.  The gold polished and looks like a nickel plated single action, until you pick it up and feel the weight, which is very heavy for it's size being 14 karat gold.  The grips with an inlaid oval 14 karat white gold rampant Colt medallion on each side.  The top of the barrel pantograph engraved with the proper two line barrel address.  The left side also pantograph engraved with the two line patent dates. Checkered hammer spur.  Oval ejector rod button.  Beautifully made and finished, and one of just a handful made with the rampant Colt medallion grips.  Herschel past away about 12 - 15 years ago, and none of Alex's work has been pantograph engraved since.  It is seldom anymore that I see any of Alex's work with the Herschel Kopp markings.  Contains about $820.00 worth of gold at today's price of $1,280.00/ounce.

Uberti-1866-Win-Rifle-12-2.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is a very early 47% scale Winchester Model 1866 octagon barrel rifle by Uberti in Italy.  20 3/8" long overall with a 11 7/16" .21 caliber rifled octagon barrel.  All steel parts are charcoal blued.  The brass parts on this piece are not gold plated as is normal for the Uberti 66's.  You'll notice from the photos that the sideplates are somewhat darker that the frame.  This is because the sideplates are sheet brass and the frame is cast brass and they have slightly different compositions causing them to patina differently.  The wood is straight grained French walnut with a little figure in the buttstock.  Serial # 12 is stamped into the top of the barrel just ahead of the receiver which is not normal, and on the lower tang which is.  Full magazine, crescent buttplate with the trap door for a cleaning rod (rod not included).  Checkered hammer spur, the sides of the hammer polished and in the white.  The rear sight has the distance graduation markings.  There is no Uberti marking under the rear sight like normal.  The barrel is plugged at the breech as are all of the Uberti rifles.  The condition is good with generally some light rust freckling on the blued parts and some areas starting to turn plum.  IO think with rust will clean up to look a lot better, I just don't have the time and skills to do it correctly.  There are some very small handling marks in the wood.  The brass has a very pleasing mellow aged patina with the sideplates being darker as noted above.  Uberti 1866 octagon barrel rifles are scarce as they were probably less than 10% of production, most of the production being round barrel carbines.  This is a very early and interesting, probably "pre-production", piece as all I have ever seen had all of the brass parts gold plated, were Uberti marked under the rear sight, and were not serial numbered on the barrel.  Really looks realistic, and without a scale reference, most people would never know it is a miniature.

Weston-half-Southener-der-1-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is a very early Tom P. Weston "Southener" derringer chambered for the Weston propriety 3mm externally primed centerfire cartridge, probably made in the late 1940's or early 1950's.  2 1/2" long overall with a 1 1/4" octagon barrel.  The muzzle bore measures .180, and is larger than the chamber bore which is .120.  The barrel, hammer, trigger, and screws are blued.  The yellow brass frame is silver plated.  Checkered hammer spur, the hammer having both half and full cock.  Two piece ivory grips with the retaining screw entering from the left side.  Yellow brass grip escutcheons.  The serial number "1" stamped into the bottom of the grip strap.  Complete with the original Weston deluxe glass topped mahogany casing.  The casing French fit, and lined in purple and red felt.  Included in the casing is an ivory handled cleaning/extractor rod and a rectangular black lacquered lift top tin with brass top knob.  The tin contains 29 original Weston 3mm centerfire externally primed blank rounds.  The pistol is in very good condition, showing minor handling wear, and the blue starting to turn plum.  The silver plated frame showing a nice aged patina, with about 85% of the original silver plating.  The case in in excellent condition, and has a piece of paper taped to the bottom marked "SOUTHENER, SERIAL 1, send to Berger, which means it was in the famous Harold Berger collection at one time.  The glass is plain flat single strength glass, not the usual heavy beveled glass usually seen on these cases, possibly because it is such an early Weston miniature.  The cartridges, as usual, show deteriorated priming, and most likely will not fire.  Also included is a round brass tag with a hole and a paper tag marked CHRISTIE'S, 151, EAST" denoting that at one time it was in a Christie's of New York auction, and probably bought from them by Mr. Berger.  Other than a very few of the Weston BelMex single shot pistols, this is one of the only miniatures I have ever seen chambered for the Weston 3mm centerfire round.

Revolver-pencil-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

Although this kind of looks like a miniature Belgian or German revolver, it is really a pencil!  1 11/16" long overall with a 3/4" octagon barrel.  All nickel plated sheet metal construction.  White two piece celluloid grips held in place by two rivets.  When the trigger is pulled, the spring loaded "bullet" shoots from the barrel.  When the bullet is un-screwed, it reveals a collet that holds the pencil lead.  There is a small knob on the underside of the barrel that travels in a slot in the bottom of the barrel that is pulled back towards the frame to re-cock the "bullet".

I've been doing this a long time, but I've never seen anything like this!  Really nice condition showing almost 100% of the original nickel plating.  There might have been a gold wash over the nickel as I think I see traces, but only in the protected areas.  The hammer is fixed and does not move.  A truely novel piece and worthy of some serious research!

Smith-Paterson-Pr-207-208-1.JPG

!!!!SOLD!!!! 

This is a 1/3 scale cased pair of Colt Texas # 5 Paterson revolvers by Larry H. Smith of Florida.   Serial number 207 & 208.  Both will shoot the 2mm pinfire cartridges.  The top flats of both barrels are marked and  platnium inlaid "-L.H.SMITH - FLA. USA -"   The barrels with five platnium bands, one at the muzzle, two just ahead of the cylinder, and two on the humps of the bottom lug.  Both revolveers are 4 11/16" long overall with a 3" barrels of .124 bore diameter.   The frame are silver plated brass, the steel parts were fire blued except for the hammers which were finished in the white.  Both have beautiful one piece elephant ivory grips showing a nice aged patina, the right or non-showing sides noticably darker that the left sides.  The trigger does not fold and the cylinder must be manually indexed as is typical for these.  Complete with the original Larry Smith walnut hinged top casing with slide latch closure.  The interior French fit and lined in an olive green velour.  The bottom of the case stamped "-L.H.-, Smith, 207 &208" in three lines.  Accessories include a walnut handled brass cleaning/extractor rod; a brass lift top cap tin containing some cloth patches and with a white Eley caps label; a one spout powder flask that would contain the 2mm pinfire blank cartridges, none of which are included, a walnut handled three legged steel bullet mold that cast a single round ball, and an extra cylinder that is marked 207 on the rear side.  Mechanically excellent.  I sent the set back to Larry & he replaced both hammer springs, but just didn't have time to restor them.  This set was a victim of Hurricane Katrina.  It was not submerged, but was on a closet shelf in a house that flooded, and was not rescued for several days.  Revolver # 207 has about 40% oiginnal fire blue, the balance flaked off.  The barrel and cylinder showing some rust and pitting.  Revolver # 208 has about 10% oiginnal fire blue, the balance flaked off.  The barrel and cylinder showing some rust and pitting.  The mold and extra cylinder are mostly gray and show some rust and pitting.  The frames on both revolvers show about 90 - 95% of the original thinning silver plated finish.  The cloth lining of the casing, especially the bottom, got damp, causing the finish loss & rust, the worst of which is on the right or non-showing side.  Larry cleaned up the outside of the case & it looks really good.  He also polished up the cleaning rod, cap tin, and flask.  This was a really fancy pair of Larry Smith Colt Paterson revolvers with the rare and very seldom seen 3" barrels, and would make a great project for someone with the skills to properly restore and refinish these.  No returns or refunds.  Priced accordingly.

Antique-Percussion-muff-pistol-PD-1-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is an antique 1/2 scale single shot folding trigger flintlock muff pistol made by W. Jones in London in about the 1820's.  This is a very fine, very upscale deluxe piece!  2 5/8" long overall with a 5/8" round smoothbore screw off barrel of about .16 caliber.  The barrel has a integral lug near the bottom rear for use with a special wrench that slipped over the barrel could be used to unscrew the barrel when it would not turn by hand.  The steel metal parts are smooth, show no pitting, and are nicely browned.  Whether this finish is original, or just from age I can not tell.  This piece has a very neat safety on the top tang, that when pushed forward, locks the hammer from dropping and also locks the frizzen in place so it can not open.  The frame is inlaid with a gold banner on the left side marked "W. JONES", and inlaid on the right side with a gold banner marked "LONDON".  The frame, barrel, top tang, bottom tang, safety, top jaw, top jaw screw, and frizzen nicely engraved.  The one piece walnut grip is profusely inlaid with silver wire scrolls and pins, and an engraved flower on each side near the bottom.  100% fully functional and working, with strong hammer and frizzen springs.  The hammer has both half and full cock.  The folding trigger does not drop until full cock.  Excellent condition considering it's age, showing some minor handling marks, but nothing terribly distracting.

Barrett-Win-95-Flatside-TD-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is a 1/2 scale Winchester Model 1895 flatside, takedown rifle that is an unfinished project by master miniature maker Mike Barrett of Minnesota.  Approximately 22 1/4" long overall with a 13 1/4" octagon .22 calibre rifled barrel.  All of the metal parts are finished and only need final polish, markings, and blueing.  The Buttstock has the buttplate fitted, but is not inletted or profiled to fit the rear of the receiver.  Similarly, the forearm is not inletted or profiled.  Included is the takedown barreled action which is in the white, the buttstock with fitted buttplate, the forearm rough cut blank, and the pistol grip cap.  The brass escutcheons for the forearm are already made and are safely stored on the forearm retaining screws, which are fitted to dovetails in the bottom of the barrel.  The action is fully functional and functions flawlessly.  The barrel does take down as it should.  There is no chamber cut into the breech end of the barrel.  The barrel is rifled all the way to the bolt face, and is bright & shiny with no pits or rings.  Dovetailed front sight, dovetailed step adjustable rear sight.  The wood looks to be very high grade American walnut with beautiful figure and grain.  All metal parts are in excellent condition and only need to be finished.  Mike made a couple other Winchester Model 1895 flatside rifles, but this is the only takedown 95 flatside he ever made.  A unique One-of-a Kind" piece!  If you've been looking for a neat miniature project, this is a really cool one!

The ring looks to be silver, and has some nice vine type hand engraving around the perimeter. The barrel group, hammer, trigger, recoil shield, and spring are fire blued steel. The cylinder measures .431" in diameter and .264" long. I do not have a ring sizer, but the inside of the ring measures .650". The ring is 1.381" long overall. The recoil shield is .545" in diameter.

Also included are four - 2mm pinfire blank rounds. The ring is in excellent condition showing only minor of handling marks and wear.  The case is structurally excellent.  The outside does show some scuffs from wear and handling, especially to the corners and bottom, and some pealing of the covering on the bottom rear corner. Although I have sold several 6 shot ladies ring guns over the years, this is the first 5 shot I have ever seen.

Uberti-Win-1866-Carb-Project-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is a Winchester 1866 carbine made by Uberti in Italy. This is a nice project for the "Do it your selfer".  The barreled receiver was ordered from Uberti with no wood, as it was supposedly going to be ivory stocked.  Never happened.  The barrel was laser engraved by me when I worked for IMA with the proper Winchester barrel address.  There is no serial number on the lower tang, and no Uberti marking on the barrel.  The lever, hammer, and trigger were sent to Doug Turnbull and case colored.  This was to have been a very high end rifle!  Alas, it was never finished and I ended up with the barreled action in a trade.  I scrounged up an original Uberti stock with gold plated buttplate, forearm, and a brand new forearm barrel band with the screw.   I also furnished the three wood screws for the buttplate and the lower tang.  The stock and forearm are nicely figured and in pretty good shape, but do have some small scratches, dents, and dings in the varnish.  I do not think the frame, sideplates, and cartridge lifter are gold plated as there is some very obvious fingerpring oxidation on the sideplates, which should easily polish off.  High polish blue steel barrel and magazine.  The carbine buttplate with the sliding trapdoor for a cleaning rod (cleaning rod not included). Carbine flip rear sight. Rifled barrel. The hammer spur finely checkered.  This piece has some problems, but all are easily repaired.  Priced accordingly.  If I was doing it, I think I'd distress it and make it look 150 years old, with maybe a rawhide wrapped wrist and some small brass tacks to make it look like an Indian gun.  Or it could easily be restored to 100% new, and would look exceptional with the barrel address and case colored hammer, lever, and trigger.  I'd oil finish the stocks if I did this.  I put it together for the last 2 photos except for the forearm barrel band screw.  The barrel and mag tube will have to be notched for screw clearance.

This is a 1/2 scale Remington Elliott "Mississippi" single shot derringer made by master miniature maker Daniel E. Osterman of Oregon.  2 3/8" long overall with a 1 1/4" rifled barrel of .19 caliber.  The frame is silver plated and nicely scroll engraved on both sides and the top.  The barrel is nitre blued.  The hammer and trigger are case hardened, the hammer spur is checkered.  Serial # 11 is stamped into the bottom of the barrel near the frame.  The makers mark " D.E.O.+" is hand engraved into the bottom of the backstrap. I'm not sure how many of these Dan made, but not many.  This one is deluxe with the engraving, silver plated frame, and dark rosewood two piece grips with brass escutcheons.  There is some spotting and freckling on the barrel, and the case colors on the hammer and trigger have turned gray.  Priced accordingly.

USHS-SAA-Classic-190-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!!

 This is a 47% scale Colt single action army "Classic Edition" revolver Model of 1873 as issued by the United States Historical Society back in the 1980's.  All of these have serial number "1" stamped into the barrel, frame, triggerguard, & backstrap.  This is because this is an exact miniature of serial # 1 Colt SAA.  The actual serial number, 190, is stamped into the cylinder pin boss just below the cylinder pin, the rear of the cylinder, and the loading gate.  6 1/8" long overall with a 3 7/16" long rifled barrel.  Fully functional, but non-firing.  Typical of the early Colt SAA's, this has the "pinched" frame sight, the round "Bullseye" ejector rod button, and the cylinder pin retained by a screw.  The top of the barrel is roll stamped with the single line Colt "Italics" barrel address.  The left front of the frame roll stamped with the Colt patents in two lines.  The left rear of the triggerguard stamped with the ".45 CAL" caliber markings.  Checkered hammer spur.  As per the originals, the frame, hammer, and loading gate are color case hardened.  The balance of the steel parts are a beautiful high polish black blue.  Nickel silver front sight.  Walnut one piece grips.  Complete with the original USHS mahogany hinged top casing with slide latch.  The Colt logo stamped into the right front corner of the top.  The interior French fit with a dark forest green velour lining and includes the typical USHS "Classic Edition" brass plaque.  This piece has condition issues.  There are several small areas of blue flaking and some minor rust on the cylinder, some minor rust on the ejector rod button, and the finish is lifting on the grips.  There is no bad pitting, and it wouldn't take much polishing to get the gun ready to refinish, maybe in silver plate?  The case is in pretty good condition except for some handling marks and scratches, and the interior top lining needs to be re-glued in place. Priced accordingly.  Sold "As-Is", no returns or refunds on this item.  This would be good piece to "Antique", age it down, cut some notches in the grip, and make it look 100 years old!

ILION, N.Y.".  Very finely checkered hammer spur and manual ejector button.  Two piece checkered black hard rubber grips with yellow brass escutcheons and a blue screw entering from the left side.  Unlike the 1/2 scale miniature Remington O/U derringers made by Daniel Osterman, which are made of cast German silver and do not have a firing pin, this piece is made from cast steel just like the original Remingtons, and this piece has the articulated firing pin that moves up or down each time the hammer is cocked.  Beautifully polished and finished in a nice black blue.  Complete with the original Gianforte green cardboard lift top box with white cotton batting in the bottom.  The top and ends of the lid with reproduction Remington labels.  Mint new condition.  This piece looks 100 times better in hand than it does in my photos.  I just can't seem to get the lighting right to properly show the engraving without washing out the rich blue color of the miniature.  It is truly a gorgeous piece and would be at home in even the finest collection.

This is a 1/3 scale double barrel flintlock Kentucky rifle by master miniature maker Fred Crissman of Pennsylvania.  20 7/16" long overall with 15" part round part octagon browned barrels.  This is an exact copy of a full size rifle in Mr. Crissman's collection, and is unusual in that the octagon part of the barrel is at the muzzle end instead of the breach end.  Steel lock assemblies, triggers, and upper tang are finished in the white.  The hammers have both half and full cock.  The barrels are drilled through to the touch holes.  Brass furniture.  Beautifully highly figured fiddle back maple one piece stock.  Nice pierced brass patchbox with bush button release at the bottom of the toe end of the buttstock.  The left side of the stock with a raised cheekpiece and some nice high relief carving.  There is also some carving on the bottom of the forestock just behind the brass nosecap.  Brass tipped hickory ramrod.  The ramrod thimbles are round on each end and octagon in the center.  Bead front sight and "V" notch rear sight.  The two barrels held together with a solid brass center rib.  There is a silver oval inlaid into the bottom of the forestock that is hand engraved "F, Crissman, 2013" in three lines.  Just a beautiful piece and the first miniature double rifle I have ever seen.

David-Hicks-FL-Pistol-CB3-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is a 1/4 scale British traveling or dueling  pistol by master miniature maker David Hick from England.  This was copied from an original made by Bass of London circa 1775.  It just so happens that I am in possession of an original letter, on onion skin paper,  and a small color Poloroid photograph, from David Hick to Sam Weill dating from October 1974 describing this exact piece.  I quote the original David Hick Letter to Sam Weill: 

 "The original, which is in a private collection, was made in London about 1775 by Bass.  It is full stocked in English walnut with steel furniture.  It is a type which may be described as "traveling or dueling pistol" and had a very nice flintlock action.  The miniature No. 44-4, is a fairly close copy in 1/4 scale.  The stock is made of a piece of dark walnut and matches the original for colour and grain; it is oiled and rubbed.  The barrel is tapered octogonal and slightly swamped, and has a small blade foresight and is browned.  The breechplug tang is blued and scroll engraved, and the head of the tang screw is also engraved.  The two ramrod pipes are barrel shaped in blued steel and take a rosewood ramrod with a black horn tip.  The trigger guard is steel, blued; the bow is ribbed at the edge and the palm is engraved with the traditional pineapple motif.  Full flintlock action using hand forged, hardened and tempered V springs, hardened bridle, tumbler and sear.  Swan neck cock and correct frizzen.  

Length over all                 3.650"

Length of barrel               2.325"

Bore                                  0.147"

             Length of lockplate         1.140"     End quotes"        

 3 5/8" long overall with a 2 5/16" long octagon smoothbore barrel.  Blued steel lock & triggerguard, browned barrel and ramrod pipes.  The lockplate, hammer, triggerguard, and lock retaining screws lightly engraved.  There is an upper case H in a circle stamped into the top of the barrel near the tang.  Ebony ramrod with black horn tip.  English walnut stock.  The left upper barrel flat stamped 44-4.  Cased in a hinged top maple casing, French fit, with a russet suede lining.  Copies of the original letter and photograph will be included in the sale.

Crissman-Frederick-Sell-Ky-flintlock-rifle-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is a 1/3 scale Frederick Sell Kentucky/Pennsylvania flintlock rifle by master miniaturist Fred Crissman of Pennsylvania.  19 1/2" long overall with a 14 5/16 long browned octagon barrel of .173 caliber.  Steel lock assembly finished in the white.  Yellow brass and German silver furniture.  Very ornate pierced and engraved patchbox.  Includes a beautiful powder horn, priming horn,  pliers type bullet mold with sprue cutter, and a beautiful hinged top highly figured walnut casing with push button latch.  The interior French fit in red felt.  Mr. Crissmann tells me the full size rifle this is copied from is probably the finest rifle Frederick Sell ever made.  Mr. Sell was from the Littletown school of gun makers during "The Golden Age" of gun making.  The full size rifle is pictured in Joe Kindig's book, "Thoughts on the Kentucky Rifle in it's Golden Age".  Made by Mr. Crissman in 1987, this exact scale miniature rifle took over a year to complete.  It is by far the finest piece I have ever seen made by Mr. Crissman.

Crissman-diarama-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is a 1/3 scale diorama of a flintlock Kentucky rifle and all the related accessories a "Mountain Man" would need to survive in the wilderness.  Made by master miniaturist Fred Crissman of Pennsylvania.  The rifle is 19 1/4" long overall with a 14 3/8" browned octagon barrel of .175 caliber, and is built in the style of a Lancaster Pennsylvania gun.  it is 100% fully functional and will shoot, but it is not recommended by Mr. Crissman.  The bore is drilled through to the touch hole.  Dovetailed brass blade type front sight, dovetailed steel sporting rear sight.  The brass tipped ramrod extends past the muzzle about 1/4".  Steel lock assembly and trigger finished in the white.  The lock has both half and full cock with a crisp action.  Brass furniture.  Nice spring loaded patchbox door with some minor engraving.  Raised cheekpiece with some nice high relief carving on the left side of the butt.  The inside of the patchbox door hand engraved "F. Crissman, 1992" in script in two lines.  The finish on the barrel looks to be a brown lacquer with something added to it to simulate a distressed and slightly surface rusted finish, but it is not rust. The diorama is housed in a glass topped hinged oak case with hangers on the rear so this can be hung on a wall.  The bottom of the case is a miniature Indian trade blanket.  The rifle and tomahawk each hang on two hand hammered steel hooks.  Accessories include a peace pipe tomahawk with forged steel head, an antler handled steel blade knife, a double spring trap, a priming flask, a powder flask, and a possibles bag.  The accessories, like the rifle are very well made.  The ultimate decoration for your "Man Cave"!

Crissman-Hawken-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is a 1/3 scale Hawken rifle by master miniaturist Fred Crissman of Pennsylvania.  16 5/8" long overall with a 11 1/4" blued octagon hook breech barrel of about 17 caliber.  As with all of Mr. Crissman's miniatures, this one is one-of-a-kind.  The barrel has a steel under rib which supports the ramrod ferrules.  All of the steel furniture was made by hand, no castings, and all the steel parts have a blue finish!  Yellow brass tipped hickory ramrod.  Two wedges hold the hook breech barrel to the stock.  Dovetailed blade front sight and dovetailed V notch rear sight.  Crescent buttplate with separate toeplate.  This rifle has a functional double set trigger!!!  Beautiful curly maple fiddle back one piece stock with raised cheekpiece on the left side.  The right side of the buttstock inlaid with an oval patchbox that is hinged at the bottom and has a pineapple finial.  The lid of the patchbox engraved with the makers initials in a fancy script.  The top of the barrel marked S. HAWKEN ST. LOUIS, on either side of the rear sight.  There is a small oval silver tag marked CRISSMAN held to the triggerguard with a fine silver chain.  Complete with the original Walnut glass topped display case, with hangers on the rear for a wall mounted display.  The display includes a miniature Indian trade blanket, a pair of hand made miniature snowshoes, a functional miniature powder horn with leather thong sling, two photos of mountain men, and a small cardboard sign describing the rifle.  The snowshoes themselves are an amazing piece of work!  Also includes a copy of a book Mr. Crissman had specially printed, only 3 copies, on the making of this rifle.  This is the only miniature Hawken or plains type half stocked rifle that I have ever seen.  You should take into account that most flintlock and percussion rifles, full size and miniature, use brass for the furniture, which is much easier to work with.  Steel furniture is probably 4 times more difficult, and again, there are no castings, everything is cut, then filed to shape by hand.  Very very labor intensive, and it takes a very skilled hand!

Tippmann-1919-A4-138-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is a 1/2 scale Browning Model of 1919 A-4 machine gun made by The Tippmann Arms Company in Fort Wayne, Indiana back in the 1980's, and is marked on the right side of the receiver "MODEL 1919, NO. 0138, TIPPMANN ARMS CO., FT. WAYNE, IN.", in 4 lines.  Not to be confused with one of the later guns made by Lakeside Machine in Pound, Wisconsin, this is much earlier and much more desirable from a collector's standpoint.  This piece is chambered for, and will fire semi-automatically, the .22 long rifle rimfire cartridge.  19 5/16" long from the back of the pistol grip to the muzzle with a 11" barrel.  Gray Parkerized finish, except for some of the small parts which are finished in the white.  Looks to be near mint and possibly unfired.  Complete with the original oak crate with brown leather handles.  Accessories include the traverse & elevation mechanism, the original operator's manual, a schematic glued to the underside of the lid, 2 OD green ammo cans, and 2 belts.  One of the ammo cans is marked in white stencil "100 CARTRIDGES, CAL 22, L.R. - H.V., ++++ BELTED, LOT-TAC-85" in 5 lines.  The other can is unmarked.  One of the belts is the very early black plastic belt which were prone to breakage, and one is the later cloth belt which replaced the black plastic belts early in production.  The cloth belt is still rolled and has never been loaded.  Near mint condition with only a small blemish on one of the tripod legs.

Furr1874Gatling661.jpg

!!!!!SOLD!!!!!

This is a 1/3 scale 1874 Gatling gun on a field carriage with the 240 round Broadwell drum magazine by the renown Karl Furr in Orem, Utah.   This piece is a true work of art and would be the centerpiece of any collection, miniature or otherwise. This magnificent piece is chambered in .22 short rimfire and does shoot, up to 800 rounds per minute. As such, it must be shipped to a FFL dealer. Beautiful polished brass is starting to get a nice patina. The barrels are finished in the white. The wood is a wonderful black walnut. The Broadwell drum holds 240 rounds. 18" diameter wheels. The barrel group 20 3/16" long, 10 .22 caliber rifled barrels 12 5/8" long.   These are among the most popular miniatures ever made. 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!  No rust, no corrosion, no dents, no dings, and no scratches.  Except for the patina of the brass, the piece looks to be new.  Now, I have not actually see the miniature, just photos, but from the photos and talking to the owner, I think this is going to be a really mint pristine piece!

The interior French fit and lined in a dark purple velour.  Included with the case is a small jeweler's screwdriver for removing the barrel to load the ring gun. Also included are ten - 2mm pinfire blank rounds. The ring is in excellent near mint condition showing only the most minor of handling marks.  The case is structurally excellent.  The outside does show some scuffs from wear and handling, mostly on the bottom .

Uberti-Win-66-carb-195-1.JPG

!!!!!SOLD!!!!!

This is a Winchester 1866 carbine made by Uberti in Italy. Beautiful highly figured walnut buttstock and forearm with high gloss varnished finish.  Gold plated brass receiver, sideplates, buttplate and cleaning rod trapdoor.  High polish blue steel barrel, magazine, lever, bands, etc. The carbine buttplate with the sliding trapdoor for a cleaning rod (cleaning rod not included). Carbine flip rear sight. Rifled barrel. The hammer sides polished in the white, the hammer spur finely checkered. Beautiful craftsmanship and typical Uberti high quality.  Serial number 195 stamped into the lower tang.  A. Uberti - Italy stamped into the top of the barrel ahead of the rear sight.  This piece has some problems.  The brass and blued steel parts are near mint, the only flaw I can find is a small area of rust etching on the both sides of the hammer, which could be easily polished out.  Both the forearm and buttstock need to be totally refinished.  I'm not sure exactly what happened, but something has caused the finish to lift and flake.  The circular spot on the left rear of the buttstock is just sticker glue, no big deal.  You can see from the photos where the finish has flaked in some spots, and just lifted in others.  There are no bad scratches or dings in the wood, just needs to be stripped and refinished.  Priced accordingly.  If I was doing it, I'd use an oil finish.

Includes the original USHS glass topped mahogany case with etched Colt logo on the glass.  The interior bottom French fit and lined in a blue/gray velour.  There is the usual USHS engraved rectangular brass identification plaque, and the Colt logo etched into the glass.

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!

PennyKnife1.jpg

!!!!!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.  Ivory 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.  Only 1 available!

AntiqueMiwueletFlintlockpistolwNRAMedal.jpg

!!!!!SOLD!!!!! 

This is absolutely one of the finest miniature firearms I have ever had the joy to handle!  An exquisit antique miquelet flintlock pistol probably made between 1680 and 1720.  Unmarked, maker unknown, but undoubtably made in Spain.  4 5/16" long overall with a 2 1/2" smoothbore barrel of about .22 caliber.  The stock is gold plated brass.  The steel lockplate and barrel are highly polished and finished in a bright fire blue.  The balance of the steel parts are finished in the white.  Exceptional workmanship with beautiful executed engraving on the hammer, pan, frizzen, triggerguard, hammer spring, frizzen spring, and nosecap.  This exact piece pictured in Louis Winant's book "Firearms Curiosa" on page 44, plate 37, and written about on page 42 when it was a part of the famous Dr. W. R. Funderburg collection.  This book was first published in 1955.  Winant's description is as follows: "At the top of the uncased pistols is a very fine all-metal piece with a beautifully executed miquelet lock.  The copper hue of the frame, the bright steel of the lock, the intense blue of the barrel, combine to make this outstanding.  The piece is 4 1/4" overall".   I also have an old black & white photo from the 1976 NRA Annual Convention that shows this exact piece when it was in the Robert Ables Collection and another black & white photo of this piece at the 1967 NRA Annual Convention when it was in the Sam Weill collection.  I am also told it was at one time in the Harry Knode collection.  The person I bought it from bought it from Dr. Paul Kopsch several years ago, so this piece has been in some of the finest miniature collections ever to exist!  Complete with a slide lock walnut casing, French fit with a olive green felt lining.

Leman percussion trade musket made by master miniaturist Fred Crissman of Pennsylvania.  15 1/2" long overall with a 10 7/16" octagon smoothbore barrel of .156 caliber.  Browned barrel and lock assembly.  The lock having both half and full cock, and featuring a drum type nipple.  The lock marked "H. LEMAN".  The barrel is drilled through to the nipple.  The top flat of the barrel signed and dated by the maker "F. Crissman '13'", in script.  The hammer spring is quite strong and with the proper percussion caps, this rifle will fire.  Yellow brass furniture.  The highly figured very tight grain walnut stock is decorated with numerous round head yellow brass tacks, and has a rawhide leather reinforcement holding the barrel to the front of the forestock.  Dovetailed front sight, no rear sight.  Hickory full length ramrod with brass tip.  These rifles were made to trade to the American Indians, and were never meant to be highly accurate, thus the smoothbore barrel and no rear sight.  A very nice piece, by a very talented maker, of a subject rifle I have never seen made in miniature before.

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.
