    Thanks for posting the video. What amazing craftsmanship. I noticed that it was a 1911 A-1 by the arched mainspring housing. I wonder if it was a locked breach single shot because of no room for a recoil spring. I wish that there was a close up of one of the cartridges.

    Making the ammo was also a challenge.

    Everything was going great until he continuously worked the slide. Every time he chambered a new round, the muzzle faced his right index finger or palm. Could have been an owie. He needs to refine his chambering technique.

    It looks like it works except for the slide function. I wonder if he made it or bought it?

    The late Don Kammerer from Kendelville made miniatures. His flintlocks were said to spark. I saw several pictures of his guns in his shop. He made a miniature 300 Weatherby with ammo and the Box.
    Awesome to see.

    Here is a Marlin 1893 I saw at the NRA convention.
