I know it's an old article, but amazing craftsmanship and detail!

    I like those, a lot. Immitation is the sincerest form of flattery and this guy obviously loves guns. I like the 1/3 scale Tommy gun the most.

    Wow. I can't believe they made a mini "Second Century" double 1911...

    That is absolutely cool! It did get me thinking tough-- has anyone tried to build double or triple scale firearms? Like a 1911 that is 3x the size of a normal one? That would be kind of cool too.

    Broaching is one way to cut rifling.

    Did you catch the "A 1/3 scale revolver with scale sized bullets to show that it loads and functions just like the real thing.".

    I know this can't compare to those but I think it is interesting. I got it at the Big Texan restaurant in Amarillo, Texas as a souvenir. It was packaged with a garter and a little holster. I keep it with the garter hanging from the rear view mirror in my truck.

    It has a swing out cylinder and the trigger and hammer are functional. It is single action. The cylinder does not rotate but it has a chamber under the hammer when closed that appears to have been made to fire some sort of cap or blank. There is a firing pin on the hammer.

    (Luke 11:21 KJV) When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
    (Luke 22:36 KJV) Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    I've got some pictures on Photobucket of some miniature flintlock rifles and pistols from the Longrifle show I took several years ago. Photobucket is pitching a hissy fit right now; can't access the pics. I'll post them later.

    Two pictures of some tiny flintlock rifles. The round object in the picture is a quarter for size comparison.

    Well, Miniature Arsenal is either a subsidiary or sister company to Arsenal Firearms, makers of the Second Century.

    I'd love to have one of those in an 1861 Springfield!
