Found these and was wondering if I could get help identifying them and their value. Thanks in advance.

Interesting! Looks like 1/2(?) Scale M1s. Is there any maker marks on them?

Found this box that had them as so. Those are the only markings I see on the pieces.

No, not sure they are Edmond De La Garague guns. What they are, from what I can remember, is from a set of 100 copies of a De La Garague gun. Someone (In Florida??) had a NC machine and ran 100 sets.Never finished many. I bought 4 and finished them. Timkel here on the Boardknows about them as well. You can check the Wayne Driscoll website, he is an authority on these scale guns and where I heard my info from. I am sure he can clarify it.

 

The "tells" are (1) they have a 3/4" wide mag, should be 1/2" in proper scale to the gun. I milled 1/8" off each side of mine. Also (2), I did not look closely, but I bet there is no mag release spring.Must be damn hard to make, my mini mag releases all fall out!

 

Very cool to see more of them show up!

I do not believe they are Garrigue either. But with some time and effort they can be completed as 1:2 scale miniatures.
