Denix Makarov non-firing replica Soviet Russian Cold War gun

This little Soviet replica is just fun to hold and makes a great display piece.   It has very basic functionality with a working slide and removable (non-functional) magazine.    It would be a great addition to a Cold War collection, or a sidearm to go along with an AK-47 replica.   The Makarov was…

Its the Denix Luger

Since WWI, the German-made Luger P08 Parabellum pistol has been a highly sought-after gun primarily because of its unique design and accuracy.    And, of course,  for its connection with Nazi Germany.  This is  the pistol for which the 9x19mm Parabellum (also known as the 9 mm Luger) cartridge was developed. Denix makes a good non-firing reproduction of…

From gangsters to cops… everything from Starsky & Hutch to The Boondock Saints, to Resident Evil, this gun has made its mark on numerous TV shows, films, and games.

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…

Henry 1860 non-firing replica rifle -Denix

Here’s a classic old rifle found in a multitude of westerns.  Most recently, it is seen in the 2010 True Grit.  Tom Chaney carries the brass-finish version of this rifle..(it actually belonged to Mattie Ross’s father, before Chaney stole it off him). -(correction, Chaney stole Ross’s horse, and his money, but the gun actually belonged…

Kentucky Flintlock non-firing replica rifle – Denix

Here’s a quick vid of the Denix-made Kentucky flintlock non-firing replica rifle.  The manufacturer specs indicate that it is 45″ long, but my measurements put it at 42″ overall length.   Please keep in mind that an authentic Kentucky flintlock would be over 65″ long.   This Denix reproduction is classified as a shorter length carbine version,…

For when ya got 2 guns…one for each of ya

Not super interesting, but here’s a look at the basic dual tone, double rig holster.   Bullet loops are fitted to the standard Denix size replica bullets….(not .45 cal).   Old western holsters are fun to wear.  Now if I could just spin my six shooter like Doc Holliday, I’d be happy. For many more styles, please…

That crazy pepperbox revolver!

In the United States, the percussion pepperbox revolver started gaining popularity around 1830 or so.  Some say this revolver was a precursor of sorts to the double-action revolver which came later.   This gun was designed to be used at close range, and for primarily civilian use.   I imagine it would have been fairly common to…

Beautiful six shooter replica for those special occasions

Here’s the standard Denix non-firing replica single-action Army, except that this one is a lot more fancy than usual!  It has antiqued gold finish, elaborate leaf engraving, and wooden grips.   Check out this close-up video…. I’m pretty stoked about recently discovering my camera settings for “close-up” shots!!    More non-firing single action army revolvers.
