Model firearms

(1/4) > >>

Since in my country no kind of firearm is legal (except for 12 gauge shotguns), and considering my perverted love of all kinds of them (not as a way to maim or kill either humans or animals but as a beautyfull machine) I have turned all my affection to models.
Several models fire the 2mm pinfire cap.
I honestly envy you Americans for being free to buy arms.
A picture of one model follows (and please don't tell me that the old quarter is almost pure silver and I should not melt it down).


Hi George

 :bugeye: :bugeye: :bugeye:  wow that small ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,very nice workmanship  :bow: :bow: :bow:  

do you work from plans ?

What  type of bluing is that ?

Cheers rob

Hi Rob,

the blueing is an ordinary gun blue liquid (something 44 if memory serves me right, which I doubt).
Trouble is that with new airport regs I can't buy those tiny 2mm pinfire caps, if still available.
No plans but after buying some 200 books on firearms I have learned their innards by heart...

Thanks for your kind words,


Dean W:
Very nicely done, George.  It's a beauty.
How many hours do you figure you have in the work?
