Kolibri 2.7 SemiAutomatic
Here is my version
of the most popular miniature semi-automatic ever made. The Kolibri 2.7 (shown to
the left) was the smallest semi-automatic pistol ever manufactured.
It was designed by Franz Pfannl, who also designed many of the berloque
pistols of the early 20th century.
My version is a 1/2 scale, much simplified, underhammer, 2mm pinfire .
I am particularly proud of the detail, and the
black plastic grips. The grips were designed in Corel Draw, etched
in Copper, then curved, and shaped to create masters grips. A
mould was taken from the masters and is used to cast the
black plastic miniatures.
Above Left, you can see the barrel open, and ready to insert a cartridge with the pin facing down. Above Right is the pistol cocked and ready to fire. The pistol is cocked by pulling down what looks to be the magazine knob, but is actually a spring loaded plunger which strikes the cartridge pin which protrudes from the bottom of the barrel. To fire the pistol, you press the trigger and the plunger is released. The Kolibri 2mm PF is 1-3/4" OAL and is made from a combination of cast brass and steel parts. Because of the combination of metals, I can only offer it in a nickel plated version.
