Miniatures
« on: January 17, 2017, 05:31:34 PM »
Uberti made a couple of different models like this 1851 2nd Model Squareback Navy  during the 1990s. Plain Jane and engraved ones, a few even with ivory grips.
I know because I just met a pard who owns quite a number of them and he showed me his collection!
That is impressive quality craftsmanship.

Very nice! What is the scale, and do they shoot?

1:2, Captain.
These pistols function but they do not shoot.
Attached is another pic that might bring the size somewhat better into perspective.
There seems to be another niche market out there for miniature guns. Which I overlooked completely.
Not only of Uberti CW and cowboy guns but other types by other makers as well. Like auto pistols, submachine guns etc.
