I actually found mine in a store dedicated to native American stuff while looking for a spear, it was wrongly labeled as a Colt *L* replicaweaponry.net used to have them but i am not sure if they still do.

Thanks Flasheart, I had a quick look and it looks like they don't do them anymore. I have had a look at quite a few replica gun suppliers online and it doesn't look like anybody does a replica anymore and I really can't afford to buy an original as they have been going at auction for £3,000 TO £5,000!. The Adams is the perfect sidearm for my Alter ego.. Col Foss of the RDC.

I'm with you lads on the Adams, particularly the awesome .50 cal Dragoon!

I'm also partial to the very similar Tranter...


And am particularly taken with the mighty Gasser at the moment!

I do love the Bergmann, but cliche as it is i still prefer the C96. probably because it is such a great gun for modding, from Steam to Star Wars to Japanese Animation Space Pirate guns the venerable Mauser fits the bill.
But i heartily agree,the Tranter is a thing of beauty to say the least

The Mershon and Hollingsworth revolving cylinder automatic rifle. It had a spring mechanisim which automatically fired and rotated the cylinder. To wind up the spring you used a ratchet lever located just behind the receiver which operated a 'screw spring'

it was .40 cal and had six shots, the trigger acted as a selector allowing it to fire one shot at a time or by locking the trigger back it fired fully automatic. Patented 1855 it had a 7 1/2-inch barrel and standard colt model cylinder.

it was a black powder gun, loaded from the front of the cylinder and fired with percussion caps.

I have seen this pop up on ebay twice now and for one reason or another I always miss the end of the auction and thus miss out.

It has been listed as a Jongen A Liege Belgian single shot pistol replica so they must be out there...anyone have a lead?

I think it's a stunning piece and hope you do too...

a punt gun... for hunting geese... and whatnot.......
i am sure it could be used to take down an airship at that, lol

For hunting geese?  Might I ask, how big are these geese, and how many pieces do you want them in?  Unless of course you are referring to the Venusian Tyranogander, in which case this is perfect.

Punt guns like this were mounted on boats and used to slaughter entire flocks on the water. The practice stood in something like the relation to sport hunting that commercial trawlers have to angling. A big model like this might throw an entire pound of heavy birdshot at a time, and kill up to thirty geese at once. By comparison, the largest shotshell now loaded commercially, the 10 gauge long magnum, is commonly loaded with 1 7/8 ounces of shot. Modern hunters also consider it very unsporting to shoot birds on the water, hence the term"sitting duck".

Now, I've always had it like this: I'm not a trophy hunter, nor a sportsman.  I quite literally hunt for food.  Although I've never actually shot a "sitting duck," I would have no qualms with it if that was what was going on my table that night.

Lucky me, there's a supermarket up the road, so I dont really have to worry about that much...  Wink

I am so very happy to come across this thread, and to find that it is reasonably intact and hasn' t been flushed into the aether is even better.

A couple of questions: I know that some models of the LeMat where cartridge firing. Has anyone  heard of them being converted to "trigger-cocking" (early double action)?

Also there was mention of a modern reproduction C96, I have searched and can find nothing. Any suggestions?

Third, thanks to whoever posted the video of the water-cooled 10-22. I've posted a message to Mr.Akins as to it's availability and found out that the same Mr. Akins has become quite interested in Gardeners, Gatlings, and Nordenfeldts. Good things may be on the horizon.

Finally, an attempt to post a picture or two


Hmm, that didn't work at all.

It depends what form of reproduction of the Mauser you want... I have a pair of None Blow Back (NBB) airsoft HFC M712 pistols (sold as the HFC Boxcannon).  They're very cheap these days and both short and long mags can be bought for them.  There is however a new Gas Blow Back (GBB) Tercel Mauser C96 version out, which is still styled on the 1932 model the M712, I would love an earlier version, but such is life, these new GBB can be picked up for about $70 (about £45) from retailers based in Hong Kong.

If of course you mean a real steel modern reproduction, then I have no idea... Probably China.

There are chinese copies available, in 7.62, 9, and .45 ACP.  I don't believe they have been made in a while, but they can still be had in shooting condition for just about an arm, instead of the arm, leg, and kidney required for an original Mauser in any condition.

Good luck!

If you are not too concerned with firing 9mm rounds then these work well enough, they come with a long mag but the plastic short mags from the even cheaper plastic Mauser airsoft guns are compatible

http://www.hobbytron.com/SpringFullMetalMauserC96Model712PistolAirsoftGun.html

and a plastic one from ebay (they always have several) if you need a short mag

http://cgi.ebay.com/1x-Plastic-Airsoft-Gun-Mauser-Broom-Handle-C96-WW2-WWII-/250756534433?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a624110a1

What frustrates me is that there used to be a cheap spring airsoft Luger P08 that was always available from ebay, but then it stopped being sold or produced and i cant see spending the well over 100 currency units to get one of the gas powered metal ones just to take apart and modify
