Osterman-2X-Colt-No-2-Derr-1.JPG

Well, this is a switch, and what I am referring to is the numbers on each side of the slash are reversed!  This is a twice size, 2X, or 2/1 scale Colt number 2 derringer by master miniature maker, the late Daniel E. Osterman of Junction City, Oregon.  Dan made this piece in the Summer of 1994 when he was about 19 years old!  The derringer measures 6 7/8" long overall with a 3 3/8" barrel of .64 caliber with very heavy 7 groove rifling with a right hand twist.  Unlike Dan's miniature Colt # 2 derringers which are made from nickel silver, all the metal parts on this behemoth are steel.  This massive derringer weighs 1 pound, 13.2 ounces!  The steel parts are all finished in the white except the hammer, which is color case hardened.  The top of the barrel is stamped "No 2" with an underline under the "o".  The hammer, barrel release, and trigger are all nicely checkered.  Both sides of the frame nicely hand engraved in the typical Colt number 2 style.  Nickel silver front sight.  Beautifully checkered walnut 2 piece grips with yellow brass grip escutcheons and a single screw entering from the left side.  Beautifully made, and mint condition, showing no real signs of any handling.  You really need to see this piece in hand to appreciate the master machinist that Dan was at a very early age!  Complete with a hinged top maple casing with finger jointed corners, and a hasp and button clasp.  The case has a dust ledge, and the interior is lined in a bright red felt.  The red case felt lining is showing some minor staining, probably from oil.  Also included is an original cartridge made by Dan, which is an all brass 12 gauge (.64 caliber) shotshell cut down to .85" long with a 2 groove pointed lead projectile.  It is not known if this is a live round or a dummy, but it looks to be a live round to me.  A truly one-of-a-kind piece, by a master maker, of a very collectible Colt derringer.  Originally sold for $8K plus a $1K donation to the Boy Scouts of America.  Shown in the first 3 photos as scale references are one of Dan's 1/2 scale miniature Colt # 2 derringers, and also a beautiful uncirculated 1943 silver U.S. Washington quarter dollar.  The miniature and the quarter are not included in this sale.  The miniature is available for $600.00.  Sorry, the quarter is mine!

de-la-Garrigue-M1-Thompson-9222-1.JPG

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 except for the magazine and some small parts which are high polished blue.  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 bottom of the trigger guard "EDMUND H. de la GARRIGUE" in two lines.  The left side of the receiver marked with the serial number 9222.   Excellent near mint condition showing only very minor handling wear and a few small freckles to the finish.  The front sight turning a gray/brown patina.  There is a small hairline crack in the buttstock where it meets with the receiver at the right rear top.  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.  This example is complete with the original walnut de la Garrigue display stand.  The magazine is screwed to the stand by a threaded hole in it's bottom, then the miniature fitted to the magazine.  The front of the stand with a black over white laminated plaque reading "THOMPSON SMG, MODEL M1A1 CAL 45, OCT. 27, 1942" in three line

Uberti-NI-7.5-Bunt-3186-1.JPG

!!!!!Note Buntline Frame and Open Barrel!!!!! 

 This is a 47% scale miniature Colt Single Action Army revolver model of 1873 with 7 1/2" barrel. Also known as the "Peacemaker" and the "Frontier six Shooter".  What is unusual about this one is it has a Buntline flat top frame with the long range stand up adjustable rear sight, but has a standard 7 1/2" barrel.  This is the only one of these I have ever seen, and may have been special ordered from Uberti this way.  It also does not have the usual plug in the barrel.  Fully functional, but non-firing.  6 1/8" long overall with a 3 7/16"  .21 caliber rifled barrel. Made by Uberti in Italy. Straight grained walnut grips.  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, 3186, is stamped on the frame and triggerguard.  186 is stamped into the bottom of the backstrap.  86 is stamped into the loading gate.  Nickel finish.  Checkered hammer spur.  Nickel front sight. Black powder frame with round ejector rod button and a screw retaining the cylinder pin.  Fully functional, but non-firing. Complete with a nice hinged top walnut case with magnetic latch.  The interior English fit and lined in a dark red suede.  Also includes dummy cartridges with brass cases, aluminum bullets, and W-W .45 COLT headstamps.  also included is a three piece brass oiler, and the interior lid Colt instructions label.  Mint condition.

Smith-Rem-VP-112-1.JPG

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.

Miniart-DWM-Lavy-Luger-89-DP2-1.JPG

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.

Wenzek-Colt-No-3-1.JPG

This is a 1/2 scale Colt # 3 derringer made by George Wenzek of Washington State.  2 1/2" long overall with a 1 1/4" blue rifled barrel of .214 caliber.  The top of the barrel with the proper COLT marking.  Nickel silver front sight.  Nickle plated frame.  Blue hammer with checkered spur.  Fire blue trigger.  Beautifully aged two piece ivory grips with yellow brass escutcheopns and a single fire blue screw entering from the left side.  .  No other markings, but this exact peice is featured in the book "The Art of Miniature Firearms, Centuries of Craftsmanship" on page 54.  It was also featured in the Miniature Arms Society quarterly journal magazine a while back.  Complete with a Larry Smith walnut hinged top case made especially for this miniature, the bottom stamped with the number 5.  The interior is English fit and lined in red velour.  The case includes a blue steel cleaning rod with a yellow brass handle, and 12 rounds of 4mm rimfire ammunition.  The 4mm rimfire ammo fits very loosely in the chamber, and in the case holes provided, and I think this piece is really chambered for the .22 BB or CB cap.  I don't have any to test fit, but will try to find some.
