Gunsmith Michel Lefaivre creates miniature firearms that are fully functional. Most of his creations are done at 1/4 scale size and include guns, rifles and swords. The miniature firearms are created from raw materials which are reduced in size by using a precision lathe or a milling machine. The guns are then carefully detailed with engraving, gilding and woodworking to create the immaculate final product.

Implications - Michel Lefaivre says that the tiny weapons are hard to make and that the first few pieces were not successful at all. Within the gallery, you can see that the weapons can easily fit inside the palm of your hand. They would certainly make for great collector's items.
