Some people just really blow my mind. That's pretty incredible.

I too am impressed. These guns were obviously meant to fire wadcutters.

Aaron, if this guy is an Aussie, I used to have (until my hard drive fried) an extensive set of photos of his work. One of the most impressive was a fully functioning Webley & Scott Mk VI revolver. I was (and still am) in awe of this guy's talent and craftsmanship.

EDIT: Google "Robert A. Talbot" and be prepared to be amazed at this guy's skill. Actually, I found a better gallery of photos of his guns on Bing images. One in particular, the Webley & Scott Mk VI is shown disassembled with all its individual pieces carved from wood; In addition, Mr. Talbot also carved a shoulder stock for the Webley (yes, there is such a thing) and a Pritchard knife bayonet for the W&S Mk VI.

Mr. Talbot has also made carved replicas of the 1860 Army, Colt SAA, Colt Patterson, 1858 Remington, and a Webley & Scott Mk I.

Great if you have a CNC scanner. You make your paper parts, scan it in and then have the CNC machine make you one.

I believe Mr. Talbot does all his work with hand held tools. One photo showed him building up a part by gluing pieces of wood together to get a certain configuration. The old guy has won awards for his stuff. I wish I had that kind of patience and skill.

Thanks, the paper (& wood) guns are amazing. I'm reminded of Brown Paper Pete...

A cowboy walks into a bar and orders a whisky. When the bartender delivers the drink, the cowboy asks, "Where is everybody?"

The bartender replies, "They've gone to the hanging."

"Hanging? Who are they hanging?"

"Brown Paper Pete," the bartender replied.

"What kind of a name is that?" the cowboy asked.

"Well," says the bartender. "He wears a brown paper hat, brown paper shirt, brown paper trousers, and carries a brown paper pistol."

"How bizarre," said the cowboy. "What are they hanging him for?"

"Rustling," said the bartender.

Thanks Doogle. I'm going to giggle over that one for a while. Should drive my wife crazy.

Cool guns, too.
