From the time they first made their appearance in England in XV century, miniature models of small arms have been given as a sign
of respect to members of the royal family and government officials who could really appreciate the high artistic craftsmanship embedded in these models. The
masterpieces created by European craftsmen as an evidence of an apprentice’s ability to become a master gun maker were embodiments
of high quality and professional work.
The tradition of gifting miniature models reached Russia two centuries later and became widespread in XVII century.
This was the story of the tradition to collect miniature weapons.
We at Miniature Arsenal take pride in continuing a century-long tradition of making unique operating miniature models of small arms.
Collecting miniature models of the weapons manufactured by the world’s renowned weapon companies throughout the ages is today not only an interesting and respectful but also prestigious occupation.
Apart from a purely aesthetic value of miniature weapons, a collection of these models will have a practical value of tracing back the evolution history of small arms and demonstrating the changing way of their production and decoration.
