Here at Breach-Bang-Clear, we are no stranger to scaled-in-size things. Hell, we get bossed around by two 12″ tall action figures on the regular. We have known about Goat Guns miniature guns for a while now but the Duo demanded we get a few to see what is what. We’ll be upfront—if you buy them from links here, we will get some money we are going to use to give some of these cool miniatures to our Patreon supporters.
We got a gold AK-47 because everyone needs a trophy AK-47 on their desk. I mean if Saddam Hussein, the cartels, and anyone with way more money than me can have a real gold AK-47 on their shelf why cant I have a tiny fake one on mine.
They do a really impressive job with all the little parts. Some of the rifle even goes together a bit like a real AK-47. They could have made it entirely go together like a real gun but the small parts would have made the price unobtainable for the average person and a few of the parts would be super fragile.
Not to mention all the moving parts they have in 1:3 scale (that the Duo don’t get being 1:6 scale). So far on the AK the selector, magazine release, rear sight, and trigger move. The elevation adjustment on the rear sight doesn’t work, however, it is just hinged at the front. The cleaning rod is the hardest part of the entire AK-47 build and it’s not difficult—just requires a bit more effort than the other parts.
The recoil spring and guide fit in just like the real gun and the bolt moves although there is no piston assembly attached. Still super cool and since it is metal it makes a nice clink.
The top cover actually uses the button on the spring guide which we thought was nice to see. A large part of this gun is actually made from metal giving it a nice feel in the hand.
As you can see the magazine actually locks in using the magazine release and it comes with a pretty cool stand to help you display your new mini rifle. Why not piss off your anti-gun coworker with one of these on your desk. Or just have fun spending a few minutes building one of these. Melissa got one too and she was really excited to build one for her desk at work. More on that one later. For now, if this or other small guns might tickle your fancy check out Goat Guns and see what other cool stuff that they have in stock.

This is another one of our attempts to make obscure references, bury Easter eggs in our articles, and in general, make people — especially the grunts — shake their heads at our pedantic and pretentious sciolism. In this case, we’re referring to ultima Thule in the early, early almost-mythological sense. Like how it’s used in Isidore of Seville’s Etymologies, or better yet, the way Virgil meant it in Georgics.
But you probably already knew that.
Thyle ultima is an island of the Ocean in the northwestern region, beyond Britannia, taking its name from the sun, because there the sun makes its summer solstice, and there is no daylight beyond (ultra) this. Hence its sea is sluggish and frozen. Isidore of Seville
By a route obscure and lonely,
Haunted by ill angels only,
Where an Eidolon, named Night,
On a black throne reigns upright.
I have reached these lands but newly
From an ultimate dim Thule –
From a wild weird clime, that lieth, sublime,
Out of Space – out of Time.
Edgar Allan Poe
..concilia, incertum est, urbisne invisere, Caesar,
terrarumque velis curam et te maximus orbis
auctorem frugum tempestatumque potentem
accipiat, cingens materna tempora myrto,
an deus inmensi venias maris ac tua nautae
30numina sola colant, tibi serviat ultima Thule…
Publius Vergilius Maro
