I have seen this when it came out in 2015, but I thought others would enjoy. Larry Vickers shoots miniature guns in Russia. Among them is a 1928. Im not sure if this has been posted before, but it is incredible! Great slow-mo also.

Lol.

As cool as all the guns are (there are 3 other videos on the miniatures). I think they probably cost more than the real thing.

There are some 1:2 scale live Thompson's in the registry. FYI ...the Russian company in the video was recently raided by the police. They have been making fine miniatures for many years. But making live ammunition got the attention of the police.
This set on miniatures is completely functional. But they are not considered live firearms.

I wish he would have shown the gun firing full auto more and talked less.

Me too. And I figured they only reverse engineered live ammo for the show. Guess not, if they got raided.

The reason for the police raid must have been worked out. Since the company is still selling miniatures.
link to the Russian news story about the police raid. The chrome browser will translate to English.

There's something about Larry Vickers that's like nails on a chalkboard.

 

Awesome guns though.

About 10 years ago I contacted Miniature Arsenal and inquired about a price for the 1:2 scale AKM model.
The reply was "you got money? Price $25,000USD"
