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.
really neat set!

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"!

flintlock rifle made by Gerald Neaves. 21 7/8" long overall with a 15 15/16" steel browned
octagon barrel of .276 caliber. The top flat of the barrel hand engraved "G . neaves .8.",

buttstock with a raised cheekpiece and some simple scroll carving. Brass blade dovetailed front
sight, steel sporting dovetailed rear sight. Untipped hickory ramrod. There is a nickel silver crescent moon inlaid

Kentucky rifles and pistols. Very good condition, except the sear spring needs to be replaces as the hammer
will not catch, and it could use a thorough cleaning. The tumbler has notches for both half and full cock.

These are 1/3 scale miniature
fly fishing rods with reels. The rods ands reels were made by Ira Stutzman of Hell's Canyon Custom Rods in Halfway,
Oregon. Each rod is 3' long, made of nearly unbreakable fiberglass, and hand painted on the rod near the handle
"Imperial Miniature Armory, which is who Ira made these for about 15 years ago. Each rod has 5 guides, the one
nearest the reel with a ceramic insert. The wood handles are about 3 11/16" long and about .807" in diameter
at the largest point. The reel seat is aluminum, with two brass ferrules friction fit to retain the reel to the rod.
The beautiful highly figured and varnished exotic wood handles vary in color from light to medium to dark. The reals
are machined aluminum, and are anodized either gold or black. Each reel comes complete with fly line, leader, and backing.
I have several of these in stock. These are really beautifully made and great quality! You can choose from dark,
medium, or light wood handles, and from black or gold reels as long as the selection last. As they sell, the selection
will narrow, so buy yours early!

Black painted finish except for the bolt & extractor which are finished in the white, and the magazines and bolt handle
