Review of: Le Mat Pistol
I bought this with the idea of maybe making it into a prop from Firefly like the character Jayne Cobb had. This is all metal (except the grip panels) and heavy. The action works. The hammer can be pulled back and set and a trigger pull with let the hammer drop. The cylinder also turns as it should. This is actually a true 1:1 scale version and looks like the makers used a real LeMat pistol to create the mold. The only problem that I had was the hammer screw kept trying to work it's way out. I used a little blue Loctite on it and it was fixed. I had some reservation about spending this kind of money on a model but after I got it, I am not disappointed too much. It is still a little pricey but it is the best one that I have found without spending the kind of money it would take for a full working version.

Review of: 18th Century Flintlock
This replica has a great weight and hand-feel to it. The mechanism is smooth working, the hammer is authentic in as much as it can be cocked or half cocked, the frisson moves well and the trigger mechanism works flawlessly. I can believe that they used historic molds for this piece. Highly recommended.

Review of: Milady’s Pistol
really good replica for under $30.00. Can be used as a great base for any steampunk creation or as a stand alone piece for a pirate costume.

Review of: Philadelphia Derringer Dummy Gun
This is one of the most overlooked prizes on the web site. This weapon is a great stand alone piece. But the real joy is how easy it is to modify for a steampunk look. It disassembles easily and, since the core is solid wood, it can be retrofitted with LED, light kits, or extra gears and cogs to make an amazing little pistol
