Denix MP40 Schmeisser German submachine non-firing replica gun

The German military machine of WWII had many amazing aspects about it…Tragically, this awesomeness was controlled by a fascist dictator.  The German uniforms were second to none, they had cool names for everything, and of course, they had cool guns.  The Schmeisser MP38/MP40 is the most famous of the Nazi Germany “Maschinenpistoles”. A real MP40…

1911′s Little Brother – Browning HP Denix Replica

Like the M1911, the Browning HP is also a titan of a gun, being seen in a ton of movies. The Browning Hi Power is 9mm, with a 13 round magazine capacity- and this is the major difference with the M1911. The Denix non-firing replica of this gun most closely resembles the Inglis Hi-Power, which…

Denix non-firing replica of the rugged AK-47 assault rifle

Think about this: more AK-style rifles have been produced than all other assault rifles combined.   It’s obviously a great design, it looks intimidating, and they are just fun to hold, shoot or just play around with.  The Denix replica AK-47 is a good non-firing copy of an actual AK.   One of the flaws is that…

Happy Birthday, 1911

Today is kinda a big deal– the 100th anniversary of the Army Department’s adoption of John Browning’s M1911. This mighty gun was the standard-issue side arm for the U.S. Military from 1911 until 1985, with the exception of some special forces units. The discontinuance of the 1911 in the military was the subject of much…

Disassembly of a Denix 1860 Army replica revolver

One of the more interesting things about running a replica gun website is the suprising number of questions I get pertaining to the mechanical details of the various replica guns. Sometimes, the questions are geared toward trying to figure out if a non-firing replica gun can be converted to a real firing gun. Other times,…

Denix’s version of the M1911

This bad boy has a well-used appearance about it.  Compared to the Japanese 01-300, the Denix 1911 with wood grips is a little more rough around the edges.   It does not have a functioning slide lock, and the thumb safety is non-operational.   It also comes at a less expensive price than the 01-300.   For a…

The 1911 Government Model: one real, one fake

Is there any question that the Colt Gov’t / M1911 is the most popular pistol in the world?  Not only is it a work of art, but it is also known for its reliability, serviceability, and simplicity.   Since it is one of my fave guns, I decided to do a side-by-side comparison of my Colt 1911 with the Japanese-made…

M1 Garand replica rifle -Denix

The M1 Garand is a beautiful rifle.  To me, it just symbolizes America and the fight against fascism and later, communism.   The appearance of the Denix non-firing replica of the M1 Garand is a pretty close match to the real Garand.   Interestingly, the replica is 2 pounds lighter than the real Garand, but that’s…

Real and replica Walther PPK comparison

I recently got a request to do a video on the Denix non-firing replica of the Walther PPK.   This time, you get the added bonus of seeing a real PPK alongside a replica PPK.  Germans really make cool guns.  The Denix replica is cool too, but much, much more inexpensive than the real thing!

Schofield non-firing replica revolver – Denix

A quick video of the Denix Schofield non-firing replica revolver.  Originally manufactured from 1875-1878,  the revolver took its name from Major George W. Schofield of the 10th Cavalry.  They were quite popular in the American West among Wells Fargo agents, outlaws, and of course, the Cavalry.   I was happy to see this awesome gun show up…
