I don't recall the manufacturer, but I bought a German Luger plastic kit some decades back that was 1:1 scale. It had operating parts with a magazine and bullets. It looked so real that I dare not take it outside the house.

That sounds like the LS kit. I wanted it but have never found it for under $100. I have the Premier kit, same goodies, unbuilt, but from a glance I don't think it will look quite so real.

There was also a 45 automatic that took simulated bullets in the magazine and spit them out at a relatively slow speed. It looked gtreat - but with the glues of the time (I was in 5th grademaybe and at the time used Duco Cement when the small local stores were out of testors) - it constantly fell apart or jammed. I finally discovered Revell and Aurora cement - world of difference.

i do believe, they may have beed original to them but i think all those molds flowed around different makers for years. i remember looking for a pyro cannon that was actually brought out by someone else. maybe the makers take turn. ok fred, you make the curbsides.... anyone seen bill b?

I think these ARE the old Pyro kits making a new debut. Most of them were about 10/9ths scale or a bit oversized.

i seem to remember a "pirate pistol" which i have no idea of what it was now. that ding any rings with you, cookie?i know i rebuilt and repainted it endlessly in my games and fantasy. i believe that my sisters baby farty doll walked the plank a lot. i believe i also robbed my leggo gas station with it and pistol whipped an fbi agent. the bell barrel end seemed enormas to me then.

They also had a Remington .44 Cap & Ball model. I couldn't afford it but had both Pyro Colts, the Blunderbuss, the Italian Flintlock and the Kentucky Rifle.
Except for the rifle, the others were sold.

I recently stumbled across a forgotten horde of ancient "Scale Modeler" magazines from the late 1960s and early 1970s and found an ad for "Replica Models" out of Alexandria VA (Oct. 1968) and a two-page ad from Fenruary 1973. A quick Google of this company turned up one website that went nowhere, so I'd have to assume that the company is long-since out of business.

Wow, talking about bringing back memories.
They were on Franklin St. than moved to Slaters La. They sold no models at all, but a wide range of replica military equipment, and uniforms. They were well known for their replica guns. All kinds, As a kid I had fond memories of having one of their artillery Lugers, and my cousin still has a replica MP 40. These were made out of metal, and dissembled just like the real thing. They also sold real uniforms, should have got one then with the prices they way they are now !
Well... At least I have a real Luger now :) (a 1920 DWM model that is...)

Was that the place just down the street from Buzzy's Antique model shop (can't remember its real name)? I was at Buzzy's in '92 and went closer to the Patomic to turn the car around and saw a place with a ~lor~ of military gear, including a Nebelwerfer out front. As I had the wife and chittlens, I didn't have time to stop.
