Russian miniature gun artist Alexander Perfiliev has been making model firearms for the last forty years. But they are not just pretty, scaled down replicas of the actual design – these miniature guns are perfectly capable of shooting bullets, if you had tiny bullets.

Alexander Perfiliev drilled his first hole using only a primitive hand brace back in 1970 when he built a replica of a Mauser. At that time he didn’t have access to fancy equipment or even a power drill, yet he managed to drill holes as tiny as 2 mm in a 3 mm diameter steel rods. Perfiliev spends an insane amount of time perfecting every detail of the gun. There’s a Mauser, an AK, Smith & Wessons, pistols, revolvers and everything. He’s made over 50 different models all with steel, with each model taking anywhere from half a year to a year.

Most of Alexander’s models can be seen in person in the central hall of an art salon in Zabaikalye.
