Singing Bird Pistols
 
This is a must view. Most incredible thing I have ever seen. Enjoy!

Simply incredible...you have to hang in there for a minute before you see what this is all about. Amazing.

This is a short video on a pair of 200+ year-old mechanical singing bird pistols; whether or not you are an antique gun aficionado,
you'll be glad you took a moment to watch. They are like great paintings. .. . only on a much grander scale.

That's absolutely amazing.... Never in my life have I seen anything like that. Those things blow the finest Swiss watches out of the water in terms of world class workmanship and mechanical ingenuity.

That is just insanity! That is one gun that I would be terrified to see hit my bench. Can't even imagine the nightmare of getting that back together.
