Welcome to David Kucer Miniatures, I have been making miniature guns for sixty years. Along with my son Zavie, we make finely crafted miniatures that have been in museums and have shared our passion with you on this site. Please explore our website; you'll catch the passion too. In that case Contact Us!, we would love to know how much you like what you see.
From time to time we have some previously owned, but gently cared for miniatures available.
Typically we will work a year or more on a project, and only when done do we release them, so it can take a while to see something new.
So we are happy to have something different to offer our patient clients. Please Contact Us! if any of our offerings interest you.

It was about 55 years ago that the disease struck me: I have not recovered and apparently there is no cure. Miniatures are a disease so I decided to make the best of it and improve my condition as the years went by.
In 1935, or thereabouts I first came across some "minies" in a show in New York. Since I was literally born in a metal shop and spent my after school hours there while still in high school, I did have some knowledge of fine craftsmanship. It was a sheet metal shop and the only equipment related to a machine shop was a huge Buffalo Drill and a big grinder with an overhead transmission. There were some hand tools: a hacksaw and a couple of files, a limited number of drill bits, the smallest being one eighth of an inch in diameter and a few odds-and-ends. Bar stock was at a premium but I had a friend in school whose parents had a junk yard and there I managed to find a couple of pieces of 1/4 inch hot rolled iron bar. I had decided to try my hand at making a mini.
