Model Flat Top
Target DA Revolver,
Pearl Grips, Cal. .38 Special
|This very special engraved Officers Model is nickel and gold finished (cylinder only), is fitted with a 6 inch barrel with an adjustable front sight for elevation only, and 2-line address, with last patent date of "1905". The flat top frame with an adjustable rear sight for windage only, is inscribed "Dr. W.C. Lyon/U.S. Navy". Revolver is beautifully engraved in New York style, probably from the Cuno Helfricht shop, with full coverage foliate arabesque and floral patterns in the gullets. Foliate arabesque and geometric patterns extend over the barrel, on the butt strap and trigger guard. Top of the hump behind the hammer is engraved in a partial flower blossom with feather patterns around the hammer slot. The cylinder is also engraved in Mr. Helficht's alternating patterns of foliate arabesque and geometric designs with line border around the flutes and a scalloped border around the rear edge. Back strap and trigger are checkered. The trigger, edges of hammer and sights are fire blued. The right rear of the trigger guard is stamped with a 6-point star which indicates factory restored finish, which is probably when the revolver was engraved and refinished. The Colt factory letter (owner could not find) identifies this revolver in caliber .38 Colt with a 6 inch barrel, blue finish, type of stocks not listed and shipped to E.K. Tryon, Jr. & Co., Phila., PA., on Nov 28, 1905 in a 2 gun shipment. The gun is in extremely fine condition and is all matching. Overall it retains virtually all of its factory style refinsh, with some thinning on the cylinder. The beautiful (lots of fire and color) pearl grips fit perfectly and except for a sliver missing from the heel on the right grip are in very fine condition. The bore is bright and the action is crisp and functions perfectly. A very attractive and desirable Colt revolver.||
Swedish Lahti M40 Manufactured by Husqvarna in 9mm
Luger w/ Holster, Magazines, Tools
|This is an extremely sturdy well-built
handgun that was originally designed by the Finn
Aimo Lahti in 1935 to function reliably in the worst
environments including extreme cold arctic temperatures.
His design was accepted by the Finnish Military in 1935
and designated the M35. The M35 served effectively in
the Winter War and proved itself an excellent military
sidearm. With WW2 still brewing, the Swedes took notice
of the excellent service reports of the M35 in combat and decided
to purchase the license required for them to produce this pistol.
The Swedes renamed the pistol the M40 and it began military and
police service shortly thereafter. This example was manufactured
by the Swedish firm of Husqvarna. It is in excellent original
condition with 98% of the original factory blue finish remaining
and a minty/like new bright bore. Everything works on this
M40 like the day it left the factory. The controls function
perfectly and the action works smoothly and locks up tight.
It is a complete rig that includes a cow leather officer's holster with
2 extra magazines, a cleaning rod, and a combination magazine loading
tool/screwdriver. Most of these Swedish Lahti M40s were
imported in the mid-1970's, and we have seen less and less of them
available on the market each year at prices that continue to climb
These have proven to be great investment pieces, particularly high
condition and complete rigs like this one. If you have been looking
for a Lahti M40 this example would be a superb choice.

Colt Trooper MK III, Cal. .357 Magnum
|The Colt Trooper MK III was made from
1969 to 1983. The 6-shot revolvers were fitted with
either a 4, 6, or 8 inch solid rib barrel, adjustable rear sight,
checkered walnut target grips, color case-hardened finished
hammer, blue or nickel finished, and chambered in .357 Magnum.
This Trooper is as described and is fitted with a 6 inch

retaining 99%+ of its original blue finish, with only a slight
drag line on the cylinder. The grips and bore look as new
and the action functions perfectly, with a tight lock-up. Comes
with its original box, display board, and factory test target. A
very nice example of the Mark III Colt Trooper.

Model 1885 High Wall, Cal. .32-40
|One of the nicest
antique "High Wall's" we
have ever had. This
particular rifle was presented
to a Joseph Fairhall in Feb.
9th, 1892, and is so marked
on the oval silver inlay in the
butt-stock. The gun remains
in remarkable condition, retaining
95% plus original blue and color
case-hardened finish and has a perfect
bore.. It is chambered
for the .32-40 cartridge and has
a 30 inch full octagon #3 barrel, with
the rifle weighing in at 10.6 pounds.
The walnut stocks are very attractive
and show only minor wear and
few handling marks. It has been
used, but very little from its appearance,
has been well cared for, and would
be an excellent investment in the antique gun
Colt New Frontier Buntline,
Cal. .45 LC, Beautifully
Engraved by Jerry Harper
|Manufactured in 1979,
this is one of only 3,000
New Frontier Buntlines made in
the 3rd Generation of the Colt
Single Action Army revolver. It
is chambered in .45 Long Colt, has
a 12 inch barrel and a flat top frame with
an adjustable rear sight. After leaving
the factory, it was subsequently
engraved by the late Jerome Harper of New
Market, TN. Jerry was head of the Foreign
Language Dept. at Carson Newman University
for 30 years, but his true passion was
being a Master Engraver. He was a contract
engraver for the Colt Company, chief engraver
for Nutmeg Sports, and house engraver
for Nighthawk as well as AWA. This gun
is one of Jerry Harper's finest, in our opinion,
and has near 100% coverage. It is done in
the Cuno Helfricht style with foliate scrolls,
chevrons, checker-boards, and shell motiffs
beautifully integrated and connected with
punch dot background. The trigger
guard, back-strap, hammer, trigger, and
screws are gold plated and the one piece pre-ban
ivory grips are tastefully scrimshawed with
the portrait of Wyatt Earp. All in
all, this is a very attractive and extensively
engraved Colt by one of the best contemporary
Colt 1911 Military, 1914 Vintage
WWI Rig, Cal. .45 ACP
|A fantastic example
of a 1914 vintage Colt
1911 Military Pistol. The
pistol is in excellent original
condition, retaining 97% of
its original bright blue finish,
with minor thinning on the muzzle
of the slide, a small area foreward
of the ejection port, a small area
on the bottom of the trigger guard, and the
main spring housing. The bore has
sharp rifling, is bright, but there is some
light corrosion in the grooves. The
action is tight and functions perfectly.
All screw heads are un-molested.
The double diamond checkered walnut
grips have sharp checkering, and except
for some damage on the bottom of the left
grip panel, are in excellent condition.
The two-tone magazine is also in excellent
condition and locks positively into the gun.
One of the most desirable of the
Colt 1911 Military Pistols made. Comes with
a very nice 1914 dated leather U.S. Military
holster, which is also in excellent condition.
A great WWI rig.
Marble Game Getter, Cal. .22 over
.32 WCF (32-20), Very
|Invented by William
Marble in 1908, this 1st Model
under folding stock combination
gun, usually found with a rifled
barrel over a smooth .44 short
barrel, was marketed as a light
all-purpose trapper's gun. This
particular example, however, must
have been a special order since it is
fitted with 18 inch barrels chambered
in .22 RF over .32 WCF (32-20 Winchester).
This combination is virtually unknown
to collectors today, although .32
WCF and .25 WCF were listed as available calibers
in early newspaper advertisements. This
gun is in excellent original condition,
with approximately 90-95% original blue
finish and perfect bores. It is serial
numbered 30xx, indicating manufacture
around 1910. The action is crisp
and tight, the screw-heads are mostly un-molested,
and the folding stock operates perfectly.
The attractive checkered hard-rubber
grips are in very fine condition, with minimal
handling marks. The sights are crisp
and clean and the selector switch on the hammer
operates perfectly. This is a very rare gun
indeed, and may be one of only a few ever made.
1917 DWM Artillery
Matching Stock &
Magazine, Cal. 9mm
condition and all
original DWM 1917
Artillery Rig with
matching magazine and
with attached holster,
cleaning rod and takedown
tool. This is a late
production DWM artillery,
chamber dated 1917, and is
fitted with a 8” barrel having
drift adjustable front sight
rear sight marked 1-8.
All major components are rust
blued, the front sight, rear sight
bar and grip screws are fire blued;
takedown lever, trigger, safety, ejector,
and magazine release are strawed.
The full serial number is
under the barrel and on forward
portion of the frame. Extensive
disassembly shows all matching
small parts including the firing
pin. Each of the beech grip
panels is marked with an inspection
letter but not matched to the
pistol as is correct for these late
guns. It is fitted with its original
matching magazine. Stock is
imperial proofed and has fully matching
number rust blued lug having strawed
lever. The holster is
dark brown in color with original
straps and boot. The inside
of the flap has the manufacturer
name, but no date is visible. Blued
proof marked takedown tool and
cleaning rod with wood handle and all steel
shaft including tip. The pistol
has at least 93-95% original rust blue
with expected holster wear around muzzle,
forward rails, hump of sideplate and bottom
of frontstrap, where it is in contact with holster.
Comparable condition strawed
and fired blue parts showing no suggestion
of enhancement. Excellent
grips, with sharp checkering
and no cracks or chips.
The matching magazine is in excellent
condition. The bore is
bright, with sharp rifling, but there
is some minor corrosion in the grooves.
The action is tight
and functions perfectly. The
takedown tool and cleaning rod
are in excellent condition.
A great looking Luger Artillery
rig, and a beautiful example
of its type.
Three Barrel Deringer, Cal. .32 RF
|How many three barrel
handguns have you ever seen? This
is certainly one of the most unique handgun
designs. Each time the single action
hammer is cocked it fires a different barrel,
and there is an indicator on the right side of the
frame which shows the barrel to be fired. The
mechanics of the pistol work fine, and I feel certain
it would fire today. There are strong traces
of the original blue on the barrels, the brass frame
has a nice patina, and the rosewood grips are oriignal
but have a small chip missing at the top of the right grip.
All of the parts are matching (serial number 2767)
frame, barrel, grips. This is an early sample
of American firearms ingenuity.
Engraved Colt 2nd Model
Dragoon, .44 Caliber
in Hartford in 1851 and
sent to London for the
Great Exhibition at the Crystal
Palace, this is a very desirable
and interesting Colt.
Serial numbered 159,
it is one of the very few 2nd
Model configurations (and
could be the only one) that were sent,
as most other surviving examples
are 3rd Models (See Sutherland
and Wilson's book, "The Book of Colt Firearms
(1971), page 98, serial numbers 135
and 136). As evidenced
by the English scrolls, this gun
was most likely engraved in England,
displayed at the Crystal Palace,
and after was one of the fifty
highly finished revolvers of assorted
sizes that were presented to "various
in England". It remains today
in excellent used condition,
with all original and matching parts.
It retains about 40% silver
on the trigger-guard and back-strap
and patches of original varnish on
it's burl Walnut grips. This is a
very attractive and rare Colt Dragoon, how

is .36 caliber. The frame,

retain about 90-95% of their
original color case-hardened
finish, the barrel retains about
90-95% of its original blue
finish, and the cylinder about
60% of its original blue fiinsh.
The trigger guard
and back-strap retain about 5%
of their original slilver plate.
The grips retain most
all of their original finish,
with assorted handling marks/dings/scratches,
fit well and have no cracks
or chips. Most all of the screw
heads are unmolested. The
bore looks like new and the action
functions perfectly. Obviously
a very lightly used Colt.
Since so many of this model
were converted to cartridge, these
are quite rare in original cap and ball.

Springfield Model 1871 Ward-Burton, Cal. 50/70
|This 50/70n was one of the earliest
bolt action rifles put into service by the United States government.
It was considered inferior to the 1870 Trapdoor Springfield and
therefore saw limited production. Only 1011 were completed.
Like its Trapdoor and Rolling Block (M.1871) cousins, it was finished
in the white, with a blackened, oil quenched receiver and a walnut
stock. This specimen is in excellent original condition,
and saw very little, if any, use. The bore is perfect and the
stock has only minor handling marks. This is a very scarce
U.S Military piece.

Colt Third Model
Derringer .41 RF
|Who ever ordered
this engraved Colt Derringer with
ivory grips had great taste. It is one
of the best looking Colt's that we have
had. At the time this was ordered, Colt
sent all of their engraving out to independant
engravers, most of whom were in New York. This
Third Model was manufactured in the late
19th Century. The condition is very
good. The engraving is crisp and the brass
frame looks like gold where the silver plate
has worn through. The nickel finish on
the barrel is very strong on the left side and mostly
worn off on the right. The ivory grips, which
fit well and have no chips or cracks, have aged to
the wonderful yellow patena that makes ivory so sought
after. The bore looks good, is bright, with only
very minimal corrosion. The action is tight
and functions perfectly. We have had few firearms
that are as pleasing to the eye as this one.

Mars semi automatic
pistol was produced

|This antique "Lightning"
was made in 1882 and has a 3 1/2 inch barrel without

when you see it is how attractive it is. The combination
of the original nickel finish and the period pearl grips
really make it stand out. It is in excllent condition.
The nickel is bright and shiny and over 90% remains
with some small areas of loss. The "COLT D.A. 38" acid
etched panel on the barrel is 100% visible, and the period mother
of pearl grips fit perfectly and are undamaged. The action
works flawlessly and the bore is excellent. We rarely have
a better looking "Lightning" than this.

Smith & Wesson Model
the rarest of all
Smith and Wessons,
this 18" barreled revolver/carbine
shoulder stock is a major
prize for a S&W collector,
especially when found
in this condition. There
were only 977 total of these manufactured
between 1879 and 1887,
and this one is 100% original
in condition. Out
of the 977, only 500 had 18 inch barrels
with the rest being 16 or 20 inches
in length. It is chambered
for the proprietary .320 S&W
cartridge. It retains
90 to 95% of the original S&W
factory bright blue finish, it
has an excellent bore, and is mechanically
perfect. The action
works exactly as it did the day it left
the factory. The reddish-brown
swirl gutta percha grips
and forearm are free from cracks or
repairs, and show little to no wear. The
Walnut butt stock and black gutta percha
butt plate are also in excellent condition.
This example is serial number 617,
and all numbered parts match on the
gun. This is a chance to get a great example
of one of America's premier gun maker's rarest
Circa 1860's, for Remington
or Whitney Revolver
A very nice old
case, probably fitted
for a Remington or Whitney
revolver, with a leather, push-top
flask, and cap tin.
Appears to have had
a 7 1/2 Inch barrel in it., possibly
of Navy caliber. The
raised panal lid has had a coat of
varnish or other finish applied,
but it could easily be stripped.
There are no serious cracks
and no warpage.
This is definately a mid nineteenth
century box, and could have
been designed to hold a Colt Paterson,
although it is not of standard
configuration for that revolver.

This gun was advertised by Al Kelley
and Jack Malloy in 1967 as having
10% original silver and gold finish,
very clean and crisp, with no rust or
pitting, and factory engraved by Gustave
Young, with original Tiffany grips.
Since then the finish has been restored
and it has been cased with excellent
accessories. The condition
of the gun and case is exceptional.
The engraving is sharp
and totally untouched and the bore is
nearly mint. This gun did not
need polishing when it was restored,
the original silver and gold having
simply drifted with age, being very
thin from its 1863 manufacture date.
The cylinder scene is crisp and complete
and of course, all numbered parts are
matching. Truely outstanding,
this is certainly an investment piece,
because of its rarity and condition.

shooting venue. The barrels are in excellent condition inside
and out retaining 95% of their original blue. The quarter
sawed European Walnut stock measures 14 1/2 inches length of
pull over a 1 inch recoil pad. The stock is sound with no cracks
or chips but has numerous light scratches and dents that would be
normal for over 60 years of use. The "Fighting Cock was only made

U.S. "Cavalry" Single Action Army,
1882 Vintage .45 LC
is definitely one of the finest
David F. Clark (DFC) inspected Single
Actions available today, and may well be
the best. John Kopec believes it is unfired
and may well have been unissued and could
have remained at Springfield Armory until the
final surplus sales in the 1920's. Not only
does it retain most of its original blue, but
unlike most, it still has almost all of its bright
and vivid color case-hardening. The
insides of the chambers have 100% blue finish intact,
showing no wear from firing, but the base-pin
does appear to be a later replacement. The
grips are near perfect with no dings or nicks, and the
cartouches are excellent. To quote Mr. Kopec
(see picture of Kopec letter), "During our examination
of this fine revolver, we have noted its superb unissued
condition. It remains in virtually new
condition. It would be very difficult to
ever hope to find a finer Cavalry revolver on the market
today". While we may never know for sure how
this gun manufactured in 1882 survived in this condition,
the fact that it did only adds to its rarity and
1st Generation Colt
Single Action, Cal. .45 LC
in 1917, this 4 3/4
inch .45 was shipped to Simmons Hardware
Company in St. Louis, Missouri
on January 13, 1917 in a five gun shipment.
The finish was originally blue
and the grips were not listed. It
was later nickel plated, and still retains
approximately 85-90% of that finish. The
carved steer or bull head pearl grips
are very well done, fit well and contemorary
with the age of the gun. Grips like these are
almost impossible to produce today because
of the size and thickness of the pearl required.
The gun has a very good bore, and the action
is tight and crisp. A nice pre-war Single
Action that has strong eye appeal and should be
an excellent shooter.

Patent Firearms S.A., Cal. .32 RF
|The Moore's Patent Firearms
Single Action Belt Revolver (a.k.a. "Seven
Shooter") was made from 1861 to 1863 with
an estimated 5,000 to 8,000 manufactured. The
guns were fitted with a 4, 5, or 6 inch
octagon barrel, seven shot cylinder, removable
ejector rod mounted under the barrel, square
butt with walnut grips, silver plated brass frame
and handle with decorative broad scroll engraving
standard, and the barrel/cylinder swing to the right
for loading and unloading. These were
a popular competitor to the Smith & Wesson cartridge
revolvers, the Moore had a short life due to its
loss of an infringement suiot brought by Smith
& Wesson. Quite a few of these were known to
have been privately purchased by Union officers and enlisted
men and carried during the Civil War. This gun
is as described and is fittted with a 4 inch barrel. It
retains little of its silver plating on the trigger guard,
back strap and frame. The cylinder and barrel retain
about 10-20% of their original blue finish. The
bore is shootable with strong rifling, but there is some
spotting of corrosion. The action works well but
is a little loose. The grips fit very well, retain
about 80% of their original finish, with no cracks or chips.
The engraving is sharp and very attractive. A
neat and unique Single Action.
Spencer Model 1865, Cal. 56/50
|A supurb example of the
Spencer Carbine which was manufactured
in 1863 and used in the Civil
War, then returned to Springfield
Arsenal after the war and refurbished
for use in the western frontier. In
order to conserve ammunition, the
Stabler magazine cut-off was added at that
time, allowing soldiers to load and fire as a
single shot, or use the magazine for rapid fire
to repulse a charge. For ease of
handling by the cavalry, the barrel was shortened
2 inches to a 20 inch length. Being
the first U.S. military repeating long arm,
those guns were lovingly referred to as the gun
"you could load on Sunday and shoot all week" because
of the seven shot magazine. They definitely
closed the door on the single shot muzzle loading era
and became the model for all future military and
civilian arms. This gun, serial number 7xxx,
is in near new condition and retains 95% plus of
its blue and case hardened finish. It is 100%
original and may never have been fired.
It is definitely one of the best extant.
Model .45, Ben Lane Engraved, Cal.
|This 1887 manufactured
Sheriff’s Model #123202
with a 4” barrel once belonged
to Ben Lane’s grandfather,
who purchased it in Texas
about 1910. Several Sheriff Models
in this serial range are known to
have been shipped to a dealer in Houston
in the late 1880s. When
Ben inherited it, it was well worn and had obviously
been carried. Ben
engraved it in the deluxe Cuno Helfricht
style and fitted it with two piece
pearl grips. The backstrap is engraved
with his grandfather’s name: “ W. G. Street”.
In my opinion, this is one of Ben’s
best works in the well known Helfricht
style. From every angle, it is
stunning and the coverage is at least 90%.
It is, indeed, a masterpiece!
Larry Peters Engraved Colt SAA, .45 LC
|One of the finest engraved
Single Action Colts we have seen,
this 3rd generation .45 was enhanced
by Master Engraver Larry Peters. The
gun, serial number S31524A, was shipped in
the white from the factory, engraved, fitted with
one piece ivory grips, and then silver plated.
The layout of the tight vine scrolls,
the beaded borders, the checkering and the punch
dot background are very balanced, and the
execution is magnificant. The tarnish
of the silver plate highlights the cuts. It
is truely a work of art.
|Full Stock Kentucky Rifle SOLD: $1,850|
|This curly maple full stock
percussion rifle has a 41.5
inch long octagon barrel of approximately
.52 caliber. It is a converted
flintlock made around 1810-1820,
probably in western Pennsylvania or Virginia.
It has a button release patchbox, a long
two screw upper tang and an unusual front trigger.
While the wrist has an old repair, the gun
is tight and in good working order.
This gun came from a Lexington family and was
very likely brought in by early Kentucky settlers.
A true "Kentucky" antique long rifle
in excellent original condition.
Ben Lane "L.D.
Nimschke" Style Engraved Colt
Single Action, Cal. .45 LC
|Ben G. Lane, Colt Master Engraver,
was commissioned in 1985
to engrave this gun in the style of L.D.
Nimshke, arguably the finest engraver
of the 19th Century. Specifically,
to duplicate Nimshke's #2 pattern
and coverage on a modern Single Action Colt
.45 fitted with a 7 1/2 inch barrel. The
gun is a second generation gun made in 1962,
serial number 6734AN. The customer also
specified one piece checkered ivory grips which remain
on the gun. The gun is signed on the
front of the frame, "BGL". The work was beautifully
executed at the time, and the gun remains in
unfired condition. This is a beautiful piece
of work combining the artistry of perhaps the
most well known engravers from both the 19th and
|Winchester Model 1897 Slide Action, 12 Gauge, 30 Inch Barrel SOLD: $1,150|
|The Winchester Model 1897 was
manufactured from 1897 to 1957, with 1,024,700
built. They were fitted with
26 to 32 inch barrel, visible hammer, various
chokes, takedown or solid frame, a plain
pistol grip stock, and chambered in 12 or 16 Gauge.
This 1956 vintage 1897 is fitted with a 30 inch
barrel, choked "Full", is of take down configuration,
and is chambered in 12 Gauge. The
shotgun is in excellent condition, retaining
about 95% of its original blue fiinsh, and the stock
and forearm retain most all of their original
finishes, with some minor handling marks/dings.
Most all of the screwheads are un-molested and the
plastic butt-plate is in excellent condition, with
no cracks or chips. The bore is bright and the action
is tight and functions like new. One of
the nicest 1897's we've had in years.
|The model 100 is a semi automatic rifle that
Winchester made FROM 1961 THRU 1973. As with most
Winchester firearms, the model was radically changed in
1964. Hence the pre 1964 models are the most sought
after. The rifle’s condition is excellent totally original
except the stock has been lengthened to 14 ½” with the
addition of a 3/4” Pachmayer recoil pad. It also comes mounted
with a period Weaver K-4 scope. This is a chance to own
a classic American Winchester deer rifle just in time for this
|One of Ben Lane's finest engraved Single Actions,
this antique first generation 45 was completed by him
approximately 25 years ago. Ben is a Colt Master Level
Engraver and he considers this work to be exhibition grade.
This is the first time it has ever been offered for sale, having
been in his personal collection since it was finished.
The over lapping vine scroll pattern used throughout is similar
to that found on Colt's 1876 Philadelphia panel guns, as is
the design on the cylinder. The grips are scrimshawed in the
same vine scroll motif and highlighted with indigo ink.
The design and execution of the engraving on this Colt is superb,
and is exceptional, even for Ben Lane.
|Shipped in 1913, this 5 1/2 inch Single Action
Army, serial number 326013, has remained in remarkable
condition. The high polish blue and the color case-hardening
appear almost like new. There is very little sign
of wear on the leading edges of the barrel and cylinder, and
it may never have been carried in a holster. There are several
light scratches on the cylinder, and one moderate nick, but overall
the gun is a strong 96-98%. The bore and chambers are perfect,
as are the screw heads, and the grips are numbered to the gun
and fit well. The original box or shipping carton is with
the gun, but it has had some repair on the flaps of the lid.
Usually, the bright polish finish on these guns has muted with
age, but not on this gun. Also of note, this gun falls in that
small serial range window when the trigger guard is more round, with
a less flat bottom. Overall, a completely original gun in great
condition, with good eye appeal.
|This Type II .38 RF cartridge revolver was
made from un-assembled parts in the mid 1870s.
It was built on the Richards Mason patent with a ejector and
a 4 ½” round barrel. It has a smooth gray brown
patina, excellent one piece walnut grips with about 90%
original finish and a very good cylinder scene of the stagecoach
hold up robbery. It is tight and mechanically perfect.
Only 5400 of these early Type II revolvers were manufactured
from made parts that had not been previously assembled.
All were in .38 caliber.
|Nice 1980's production S&W Model 15-4
Combat Masterpiece, chambered in 38 Special. The
gun is fitted with a 4 inch barrel and checkered wood service
grips. It retains about 99%+ of its original
blue, with only a drag line on the cylinder, and slight thinning
at the muzzle. The bore is bright and the action functions
perfectly. The grips are in fine condition, with the exception
of a handling ding on the left grip.
|This circa 1931 Colt 1903 Pocket Pistol came
from the Chicago area and was very likely embellished
by the late Tom Haas, as the former owner was known
to be customer of Tommy's. It is beautifully gold
plated, gripped with mother-of-pearl, and the small parts have
been fire blued. The bore is excellent, and the gun
shows very little use.
|Colt manufactured the Anaconda in both .44
Magnum (most common) and .45 Long Colt, which is much
scarcer. We have a near new example in .45 LC that
is complete with both boxes (cardboard sleeve over plastic)
and the owner's manual. It probably has been shot but
is in excellent 99%+ condition. This is a very desirable
and hard to find variation for the Colt "Snake" Collector.
|Manufactured in 1933, this little .25 Auto
has remained in pristine condition. The original
nickel plated finish is at least 98% intact, shows
very little loss, and has only very few minor scratches.
The pearl grips, with Colt medallions, have no chips
or cracks and appear perfect. The gun is mechanically
excellent and the bore is very good. The "change purse/holster"
pouch of suede leather is very good with perfectly tight seams,
but does show some exterior wear as would be expected.
Overall, a very nice little package for a lady's purse.
|A beautiful set of replica dueling pistols, exact copies of George Washington's guns, circa 1775. They are new/unfired and come with their original fitted wood/lined case. Authorized by the U.S. Historical Society.||
|This has to be one of the nicest 1960 vintage, black box, 2nd Generation Colt Single Action Army's there is. It is fitted with a 4 3/4 inch barrel, checkered "Rampant Colt" hard rubber grips, is chambered in .45 Long Colt, and is nickel finished. It was very hard to take pictures of because of its absolutely beautiful lustrous nickel finish. Considering it was made in 1960, is even more stunning, because it looks like it was manufactured yesterday. It obviously has never been shot since there is no turn line whatsoever on the cylinder. It comes with its original, numbered to the gun, black box (which also is in fantastic condition), wire cleaning rod/brush, and all paper-work. Wow, what a good looking Colt SAA.||
|This was Remingtons answer to the Winchester Model 52, which dominated small bore competition in its day. These guns successfully competed against the 52 and caused Winchester to lose its stranglehold on the market. This gun is original and not molested in any way, which is not the case with most of these target guns. It retains 98%+ of its original blue finish, with only some minor thinning on the sharp edges of the barrel and receiver. The stock retains all of its original finish, with only a few very minor handling marks. All screwheads are unmolested and the sights and buttplate are in beautiful condition. The bore is bright, with sharp rifling, and the action functions perfectly. Comes with a repro manual. The rifle looks like it was hardly used.||
|The S&W .44 Hand Ejector 2nd Model was made from 1915 to 1940, with 17,510 manufactured. The large "N" frame 6-shot revolvers were fitted with either a 4, 5, 6 or 6 1/2 inch barrel, checkered walnut square butt grips with or w/o "S&W" medallions, were blue or nickel finished, and were chambered in 38-40 WCF, 44-40 WCF, .44 Special, or 45 Long Colt. This 1927 vintage gun is chambered in .44 Special, is fitted with a 6 1/2 inch barrel and checkered walnut grips w/o the "S&W" medallion, and is blue finished. It retains about 95%+ of its original blue finish and the grips are in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. The hammer and trigger retain about 60-70% of their original color case-hardening. The bore is bright and the action is tight and functions perfectly. Very nice S&W big bore handgun.||
|A nice example of its type this 1911 vintage Colt 1908, chambered in .32 ACP, is in excellent condition. It retains about 88 to 90% of its original blue finish and the black checkered hard rubber grips are in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. The trigger and safety retain most of their original fire blue finish. The bore is bright and the action is tight and functions perfectly.||
|The Remington Model 81 Woodmaster was manufactured from 1936 to 1950, with 56,091 built. The semi-automatic rifles were fitted with a 22 inch round barrel, notched elevator rear sight, 5-shot non-detachable magazine, take-down action, and were chambered in either .30 Rem., .32 Rem., .35 Rem., or .300 Savage. This Model 81 is as described and is chambered in .35 Remington. It is all original and retains about 95% of its original blue finish, with assorted handling marks and scratches. The wood stock and forearm retain most of their original finish, again with assorted handling marks and dings. The bore is bright with sharp rifling and the action functions perfectly. Comes with period correct sling swivel studs, sling swivels, and sling. A neat Remington Rifle.||
|We just bought this 6 inch barrel Python from the original owner. He bought it new around 1988 and never shot it. It was stored in a safe and still is in new condition. Unfortunately the outside of the box is in rough condition and is missing the end label. The styrofoam insert is fine and contains the owners manual. Only a few of the early Pythons came with wood grips, the majority have the black rubber. The grips alone add $300 to the value of this Python and it is a hard variation to find. The stainless steel variation still seems to be going up in value.||
|A fantastic example of its type, this Savage 1907 (manufactured from 1910 to 1917), chambered in .32 ACP, is in excellent condition, retaining 98-99% of its original blue finish. The grips are also in excellent condition, with no cracks or chips. The bore is bright and the action operates perfectly. The trigger and magazine release retain all of their original color case-hardening and the magazine releases and inserts like new. Neat pistol, not one exposed screw on the whole gun, quite the engineering feat.||
|Just received this very nice 1936 vintage Japanese Nambu pistol with flap holster, extra magazine (later version), and firing pin. The pistol is all numbers matching (firing pin does not have a number) except for the 2 magazines. It is in excellent condition, retaining 96% of its original blue, the grips are also in excellent condition, with minimal handling dings, the bore is bright with sharp rifling, and the action functions perfectly. The holster is in very fine condition, with no tears or major cracks, there is some seam seperation and leather missing on the hinge/flap. A gereat example of its type.||

born 06/08/1870, died 02/11/1947. According to the
War History Department, Major Shupe apparently went back
into the Army on May 10th, 1917. When he left the Army
is unknown, probably soon after WWI. The gun is one
of a shipment of 500 shipped to Benicia Arsenal Army Point, California
on February 19, 1913. It is in original condition, retaining
85-90% of its original blue finish, with the majority of the
thinning on the main-spring housing and fore-strap. The
grips are sound, but are worn with assorted handling marks.
Appears to have its original two tone magazine. It has a
bright bore and the action functions perfectly. Comes with
1916 dated holster (which has Major Shupes's name scratched on
it), Colt Letter and other paper-work associated with Major Shupe.
|The Mossberg 42TR was produced before and after WWII until roughly 1949. Pre-war (1940-1942) guns were identical to the Model 42T except rifled adapter, open rear sight, and front sight hood were provided, and no stock swivels. The earliest pre-war 42TR's were marked using a 42T barrel stamp and a separate "R" (stamped to the right of the "T"). Post-war (1946-1949) guns have slotted takedown screw, magazine plate, shorter unnecked forend, and (frequently) a blue bolt knob. The most common of all Targo guns. A total of 6,577 guns were produced during the period 1940-1942 (post-war production figures are not available). This is a post-war gun and is in near excellent condition. It retains a lot of its original blue finish but does have some pitting on the bolt shroud, bolt handle, receiver, rear sight, thrower handle, take-down screw, and on the barrel. The stock retains most all of its original finish, but does have some assorted handling dings/marks. The clays thrower (Mossberg Mod. 1) is in excellent condition, and works great. Comes with about 15 Mossberg Targo clay pigeons. Neat gun, and a nice example of its type.||
|Mint condition, 5-screw, Military & Police Pre-Model 10 revolver chambered in 38 Special. This 1949-1950 vintage gun is fitted with a 4 inch barrel and checkered walnut diamond grips (number to the gun). The barrel and cylinder also number to the gun. It retains about 98-99% of its original blue finish, the hammer and trigger retain 98% of their original color case-hardening, and the grips are in near excellent condition, due to a ding on the right grip above the medallion. All screw heads are un-molested, the bore is bright, and the action functions as new. A very nice example of its type, with a good presentation. Military & Police 38 Specials, in this condition, are getting harder to find.||
|A very nice pre-1920, 1st Generation Single Action in .38 WCF (38/40) caliber. This gun, serial numbered 338xxx, was actually manufactured in 1919 and is one of only a few guns with two visable serial numbers showing, visable on the frame and on the backstrap. During this period, Colt began to move the serial numbers on the trigger guard and backstrap, to underneath the grips. The gun is in excellent, original condition, with 90% original blue and case-hardening, a near perfect bore, and comes with its original black shipping carton containing the wire cleaning brush. The box is labeled and serial numbered to the gun.||
|Manufactured in 1924 or early 1925, this is one of the last Colt Pocket Automatics fitted with the black hard rubber grips, before checkered walnut with medallions became standard. It is also one of only a small percentage that were factory nickel plated, and this gun still retains 98-99% of that finish, showing only very little wear. The bore is also excellent and it is mechanically perfect. A favorite of the ladies, the gun comes with a small swede leather change purse" pouch that was so popular during the 1920's amd 1930's. All in all, a very neat package.||
|Made in 1981 this Model 66-1 was made early enough to still have a recessed cylinder and pinned barrel. In 1982 the 66-2 was introduced, which eliminated these two desirable features. This gun has been carried (has a number of minor surface scratches from holstering) and shot, but is in overall nice condition.||
|Just received this like new Colt King Cobra fitted with a 4 inch barrel, red-ramp front sight, white-outline rear sight, hard rubber grips with a silver "Rampant Colt" medallions, and chambered in .357 Magnum. Good looking gun.||
|The Colt Junior Pocket Model was made from 1958 to 1968, by Astra in Spain. The little pistols were fitted with a 2 1/4 inch barrel, checkered walnut grips, availabel in blue or nickel finish, were all metal construction, and chambered in either .22 Short or .25 ACP. This pistol is as described and is chambered in .25 ACP with a blue finish. The gun retains 99% of its original blue finish, looking like a new one in every way. Includes its original numbered to the gun box and all paper-work.||
|A very nice WWII Paratrooper Carbine, this gun's serial numbered 5491xxx and the barrel is dated 9/44. It is a 2nd series production run and has not been arsenal re-done, and remains in approximately 90% orignal condition. The bore is excellent, the stock very good, with a crisp 7/16" ordnance cartouche on the right side of the grip, and all metal parts have a smooth grey parkerized finish. An excellent example of the famed WWII Paratrooper M1 Carbine.||
|Here is a beautiful Browning 1886, take-down rifle, chambered in .45-70. The gun was engraved, gold enlayed, and refinished by Turnbull as a one off presentation gun for the Ohio Gun Collectors Association, given away at the end of 1999 to celebrate the up-coming 2000 Millennium. It is fitted with a 26 inch full octagon barrel, engraved and gold enlayed frame, butt-plate, barrel, lever, fore-end cap, and a gold finished trigger. The nicely figured stock and forearm are checkered and high gloss finished. Gun is new/unfired and comes with its original box and all paper-work. A unique Browning/Winchester 1886, a real one-off.||
|An extremely nice example of its type, this Japanese Nambu Type 14, with holster, is in excellent condition. The gun retains most all of its original finish, with a mint bore and perfectly functioning action. The grips are also excellent, with only some minor handling marks. The holster is in excellent condition, with no rips or tears and no stitching issues. Would make a great addition to a WWII vintage Japanese or military collection.||
|The Ithaca Model 37R Deluxe was manufactured from 1937 to 1955. The pump shotguns were fitted with a solid rib barrel of assorted lengths, checkered fancy walnut stock and forearm, and were chambered in 12, 16, or 20 Gauge.

blue finish, has a bright bore and functions perfectly.
The checkered plastic grips have no chips or cracks and
are also in excellent conditon. Comes with 1-7 shot
magazine. Sorry, no box or paper-work.
|This has to be one of the nicest examples of its type, a WWII/Post WWII, QVE 45 K-43, VOPO Marked, semi-automatic sniper rifle, chambered in 8mm. It is untouched and is all numbers matching. The bore is bright, with sharp rifling, and the action functions perfectly. The scope is also in excellent condition and it has sharp/clear optics. Would make a fantastic addition to a WWII semi automatic collection.||
|Unusual 6-shot revolver, here is a decent example of the French Model 1892 "Lebel" handgun, chambered in 8mm. The bore is bright, with sharp rifling (looks like new), and the action functions perfectly and is tight. Interesting the way the side plate opens up to expose the action.||
|This is the first model semi automatic pistol that Smith ? Wesson made, and it is the only pistol ever made in .35 S?W Automatic. They started production in 1913 and made around 8,350 by 1921. It is in excellent condition with about 98%+ blue and a mint bore. The smooth walnut grips, with the very attractive recessed S?W gold medallions, are in very good condition with some of the original varnish missing. A unique S?W and a great example of its type.||
|Sometimes referred to as the Model 3 Russian, this gun was manufactured between 1874 and 1878 and was offered in both.44 Russian centerfire and .44 Henry rimfire calibers. This gun in .44 Russian caliber was very popular world wide, and copies were made by Ludwig Loewe ? Co. in Russia and at the Russian government arsenal. Rimfire 44 Henry's were made under contract for the Turkish government by Smith ? Wesson, in addition to the 41,000 that were made under Russian contract. Several famous wester gun fighters and lawmen, including Pat Garrett, are believed to have carried this model. This S?W, in the 43xxx serial range, was sold by Schuyler, Hartley ? Graham of New York, as were many of the handguns of the 1870-1880 period. This gun is in excellent condition, retaining 90% of its original bright blue, very good grips and a perfect bore. As the pictures show, is has had very little wear. A great specimen with no problems.||
|Nice original Remington "Vest Pocket" pistol. All metal surfaces have lost their original finish, but the grips retain most of their original finish, with no cracks or chips. The action functions perfectly and the bore is bright, with sharp rifling. A unique and very small single shot handgun.||
|One of the most desirable 357 Magnums ever made, the Smith ? Wesson Model 27 with the 5 inch barrel. This "S" serial numbered, 1968 vintage Model 27 is in fantastic condition, retaining 99% of its original blue finish, with only some very minor thinning at the muzzle and on the cylinder release button, and a drag line on the cylinder. The numbered to the gun grips are in excellent condition, with only a few minor handling marks. The bore is bright, with sharp rifling, and the action is tight and functions perfectly. A very nice example of the Cadillac of 357 Magnums.||
|The Remington Model 121A slide action rifle was made from 1936 to 1954, with approximately 201,000 manufactured. The rifles were fitted with a 24 inch round barrel, were of hammerless design, 2/3 length tube magazine fed, plain pistol stock, and were chambered in .22 S, L, or L.R.. The rifle retains all of its original blue finish, with only a few very minor handling marks. All screw heads are un-molested, the bore is bright with sharp rifling, and the action functions perfectly. The stock and forearm retain all of their original finishes, with only a few very minor handling marks/dings. A good looking pump action Remington rifle, would make a great collectible or shooter.||
|These mid 19th Century Saw Handle Dueling Pistols, made by M. Dermot of Philadelphia, have .52 caliber, 8 1/2 inch barrels, and are in very fine original condition. They have smooth bores and set triggers, and are in working condition. The barrels show a strong damascus pattern, the locks and hammer retain 50% color case-hardening and the trigger guards, about 50% bright blue. The bores are bright and show minor oxidation. The wood case is attractive with original lining, all necessary accecories, and shows only minor cracks and warpage. Overall, this is a very nice, American made pair of Dueling Pistols.||
|This rifle is as close to new as any Pre-64 Model 70 we have ever had. The original blue is 99%+, the nicely figured wood is near flawless, and the bore is pefect. The serial number is 557xxx so it was made in 1962. It is fitted with a 22 inch barrel, the bolt is matching and it has the original front sight hood. All in all, the only thing that could make it better is if it was in its original box. These are getting hard to find in this kind of condition.||
|Here is a very attractive 1840-1850's vintage personal protection pistol. It is a big bore gun with a 5 inch full octagon damascus barrel in .60 caliber. Look at the tastelfully engraved frame, barrel, trigger guard, and grip cap. The beautifully fine checkered grips retain all of their original finish, with no chips or cracks. Even has a clip so you can attach to your favorite belt. A fantastic example of its type.||
|Beautiful little Copy of the popular Philadelphia Deringer of .41 caliber, made during the mid 1800's. This is a period copy of the Philadelphia Deringer made for A.J. Plate of San Francisco (as stamped on top of the barrel). It is fitted with a 2 3/8 inch rifled barrel, front and rear open sights, checkered walnut grips, and tastefully done engraving on sidelock, trigger guard, hammer, fittings and inlays. I believe this is one of the most attractive Philadelphia Deringers I've seen, even if it is a copy, it was very nicely manufactured, with great attention to detail.||
|A nice, original Philadelphia deringer with a 1 3/8 inch barrel and standard configuration. All fittings and inlays are tight and appear to be original. Gun shows only slight wear, with varnish type finish remaining in the curve of the grip, and only a small crack just forward of the side plate screw. Mechanically perfect, and difficult to find with this short barrel.||
|According to "Confederate Longarms and Pistols's" by author Hill and Anthony, the Confederate States of America (CSA) purchased 354 Tower Model 1856 Musketoons in 1863 and some unknown number at a later date. This example is in good original condition, and is stamped behind the upper tang, "68d REG., 1 VA MT. INF.", indicating use by the 1st Virginia Mounted Infantry. They were intended for general issue until breech-loading carbines were availabel, but most saw hard use until the end of the war. A desirable and hard to find Civil War Carbine.||
|Completely unmarked, this .41 Caliber copy of a Henry Deringer has a 1 3/4 inch barrel and minimal engraving. It is in excellent, untouched condition, except for normal pocket wear and is in perfect working condition. A very nice antique pistol manufactured about the 1850's.||
|Not quite a peanut, tis gun has a 1 5/8 inch barrel and is marked "Curry, San Francisco". It remains in excellent, original condition, with traces of varnish and excellent german silver eschutions. There is a small cap box in the bottom of the grip, and all markings are clear and distinct.||
|CMP rebuilt to as new, WWII vintage, Springfield Armory M1 Garand. The rifle has been completely gone thru, with new 5-08 barrel, new stock (with CMP cartouche) and handguard, new sling, and completely refinished like original. A very good looking Garand, should make a fantastic shooter.||
|An early 19th Century English pocket pistol, this double barrel .44 caliber over and under, all brass flintlock pistol has 3 1/2 inch barrels and a bayonet activated by the trigger guard. It is tight and is in working order, and in very good overall condition. A very neat conversation piece.||
|Made in Braintree, a small town in Essex, England, this little over/under flint lock pistol remains in excellent, original condition. While very little color remains on the metal, the wood grips are sound and have most of their varnish finish. The screw in barrels are 2 1/4 inches in length and are .44 caliber. The gun is crisp and sharp and the barrels unscrew easily. All markings are clear and distinct. A very nice 1810 period pocket gun.||
|Probably the most widely issued carbine in the Civil War, approximately 60,000 of these 1863 models were manufactured, and used extensively throughout the war. They were .52 caliber, straight breech, percussion breech loaders, with pellet primer feeders, and proved to be one of the most reliabel, accurate, and user friendly guns of the period. After the war, most were remodeled and converted to 50/70 cartridge guns, and continued to be used throughout the Indian War period, until finally being replaced by the 45/70 Springfield Model 1873. This gun is a good, original example of these famous cavalry carbines. It is tight, mechanically perfect and has a very decent, six groove rifle bore. It has had, what appears to be, an arsenal repair to the wrist of the stock, just under the saddle ring bar, but done very neatly. It has traces of original finish, but shows a lot of character, and has been well maintained.||
|Pair of consecutive serial numbered Colt Single Action Army revolvers, chambered in 38/40. The guns are fitted with 5 1/2 inch barrels, black Colt "Standing Eagle" hard rubber grips, and are blue/color case-hardened finished. They are new/unfired and come it their original boxes, with numbered to the gun sleeves, hang tag, and all paper-work. A unique pair of Single Actions in 38/40 caliber.||
|This is an exceptionally nice WWII M1 Carbine in original condition, and not a arsenal re-work. Serial numbered in the 6,255,xxx range, the barrel date is 10/1944. It was manufactured as you see it, with bayonet lug, type two handguard, and adjustable rear sight. Stock is properly marked with large ordnance crossed cannons logo on the right side of butt. The gun has seen light use, but remains in 90% original condition. A very difficult gun to find.||
|The Winchester Model 71 was made from 1935 to 1957, with 47,254 manufactured. The rifles came in two configurations, standard and deluxe. They were fitted with either a 20 or 24 inch barrel, 2/3 length tube magazine holding 4 cartridges, all blue finished, walnut pistol grip stock and forearm, and chambered in .348 Winchester only. The deluxe models added a checkered stock and forearm and detachable sling swivels and sling. This rifle is the standard model and is fitted with a 24 inch barrel. It is in as new condition, we are told it has never been fired by either the original owner, who purchased it in 1957, or the second owner, who we are selling it for. Included is the box of ammo that was purchesed with the gun by the first owner. You seldom see these guns in this condition, many were used and some were used hard. A very handsome Winchester Lever Gun.||
|Original S?W #2 Tip-Up 6-shot revolver, with spur trigger and 6 inch octagon barrel. The gun is chambered in .32 Rim Fire. The guns were made from 1861 to 1874, with approximately 77,155 manufactured.||

The bolt has lots of its oriignal color case-hardening, with most missing on the handle. The stock retains most all of its original finish, with assorted minor handling marks. The bore is bright, with sharp rifling, and the actions functions like new. It does not look like it was used much, a nice clean .22 target rifle.||
|This Safari Grade Rifle is stocked with premium grade Circassian Walnut that is as hard and dense as it is beautiful. The .416 Rigby caliber is known for its exceptional stopping power and is an ideal choice for any large dangerous game. Ruger only made this model rifle in limited numbers for 20 years, stopping in 2010. It has many features usually found on more expensive custom rifles including: 23 inch barrel with an integral barrel quarter rib with three express sights, ebony forend tip, hand cut checkering, barrel band front swivel, and intgral scope bases. It is brand new/unfired in its original numbered to the gun box, with factory rings and all paper-work. It is a true bargain for this grade of rifle.||
|Nice Gibbs Rifle Company, Remington Model 1903A3 rifle, with a reproduction 03A4 Scope and Scope Mount to replicate a 1903 sniper rifle. It is in excllent condition, rebuilt to like new condition with a new barrel and stock. Makes for a great shooter.||

It is fitted with a 18 inch barrel, 1-32 round magazine, sling, and wood detachable stock. The bore is bright and the action functions smoothly. Neat Uzi Carbine.||

|Very nice, lightly used PARS International G3S rifle, chambered in .308 Winchester. It is in excellent condition, with a bright bore, and perfectly functioning action. Comes with leather sling and (1) 20-round magazine.||
|Though the gun has lost all of its original finish, turning an overall grey/brown patina, it is in very good condition. It functions perfectly and is much tighter than most. The bores are somewhat rough, but are shootable. The grips are in very good condition, with only a minor chip on the left grip panel. Even with all of its original finish gone, the factory engraving stands out and is very attractive. One of the most attractive Remington 41's I've seen.||
|Circa 1865 to 1870 this brass frame .41 RF Deringer was produced in Brooklyn, N.Y.. It has a 2 1/2 inch barrel, walnut grips and was made without the knife blade style extractor. The frame and the barrel are factory engraved with a flower style engraving. The blue on the barrel has turned to a blue-brown patina, the brass frame has a nice mellow brass color and the grips retain most all of their original varnish. Colt thought enough of this Deringer to buy the National Arms Co. so that they could produce this exact same Deringer and put their name on it.||
|Unlike other pepperboxes of the period, the Stocking Company of Worcester, Mass. manufactured a single action variant with a long, extended cocking spur on the hammer, in both .28 and .31 caliber. Some were made with spurs on the trigger guard, and barrels were from 4 inch to 6 inches in length, usually with 6 in a cluster. This gun has been well used, but is still mechanically perfect. It is a .28 caliber with a six shot, 4 inch barrel. It has a clean, brown patina finish, and near perfect walnut grips with german silver inlays on both sides. A very attractive piece.||
|One of the rarest of the pepperbox revolvers, this six shot, .22 caliber came out in the late 1860's and only about 1,000 were produced. While an attractive and well made handgun, it suffered in comparison to the S?W, Colt and other small .22 revolvers of the period which were lighter in weight. This gun is in excellent working condition, and while it was obviously used, and later cleaned, there are still traces of silver still visable on the frame. The barrels have been nicely re-blued and the walnut grips are in very good condition, with a small chip on the right toe and a chip on the upper portion of the left grip. Overall, a nice example of its type, and one that is very difficult to find.||
|This early 18th Century over and under flint lock pistol has 2 1/2 inch barrels of 10mm or .40 caliber. It is nicely engraved and shows modest wear. The walnut handle is finely checkered and without cracks or and serious dings. The gun is mechanically perfect and could be fired today, The Mortimer dynasty of gun makers were well known throughout Europe from the mid-18th Century until the 1870's, and their firearms were considered some of the finest. This is an excellent example of its type.||
|Manufactured in 1912 this is one of 32,000 that was produced by Fegyvergyar in Budapest Hungary for the Austro-Hungarian military. This one is unit marked on the disk in the grip; 6.E. Accompaning it is an original stripper clip, which is very hard to find, and what we believe to be an epilet off an Austrian uniform. This is undoubtably a WWI trophy "bring back". The pistol's blue finish is an old restoration that was well done. All the markings are clear with sharp edges, and overall the pistol has a nice look to it.||
|One of the many European revolvers made in the latter 19th century based on the famous Gasser Patent. This one was made in Belgium, apparently for export to the U.S., since the top of the barrel is stamped "FOR .44 WINCHESTER CARTRIDGE". The grips are smooth bone, contemporary with the age of the gun. The exterior of the gun shows about 50% of the original blue finish, but the spring on the right unlocking lever is missing. Overall, the gun is excellent, untouched condition.||
|This is a very early 4 inch gun, serial number 450, in a Paterson type case with the beveled or raised panel lid, with flask, bullet mold and cap tin. The flask is double faced, marked "Colt's Patent". These cases were transition boxes with partitions, but were not used after 1850 and are very hard to find today. The gun shows traces of original finish, especially the silver on the grip straps, and very nice grips. There is some cylinder scene remaining and all other markings are crisp and clear. A nice example of its type.||
|This Colt Double Action, etched panel, Model of 1878 was shipped to Collow Row Bill on July 21, 1883. We cannot find anything about him, but he must have been an exhibition shooter in his day. Gun is fitted with factory installed ivory grips, is nickel finished, and is inscribed on the back-strap "COLLOW ROW BILL" and "Champion Pistol Shot of America". Included is a factory letter attesting to the grips, finish, and who it was shipped to. An interesting Colt 1878.||
|The Colt Officers Model Target (Third Issue) was made from 1927 to 1949. The guns were fitted with a 4, 4 1/2, 5, 6, or 7 1/2 inch barrel, adjustable front and rear sight, blue finish only, checkered walnut grips, and were chambered in .22LR, .32 Colt, or .38 Special. This gun is as described and is chambered in .38 Special and fitted with a 6 inch barrel. It is in excellent condition, retaining 97-98% of its original blue fiinsh, with some thinning on the sharp edges of the barrel, cylinder, and frame. The bore is bright, with sharp rifling, and the action is tight and functions perfectly. The grips are also in excellent condition, with only a few minor handlng dings. This would be a great shooter/collectable.||

The color case-hardened finish on the lever and butt-plate has disappeared to leave a silver finish. The bore is bright, with sharp rifling, and the action functions perfectly.||
|The last of the single shot martial pistols, this Model 1871 Remington rolling block is chambered .50 CF with an 8 inch barrel. Approximately 5,000 were purchased by the U.S. Government and have a inspectors cartouche on the left grip, "CRS", for Curtis R. Slicknet. This gun is 100% original and retains 80% plus original blue on the barrel and about 50% vivid color case-hardening on the receiver. The bore is absolutely perfect and the walnut grips show use, but only minor wear.||
|The S?W .32 Safety Hammerless First Model (Lemon Squeezer) was made from 1888 to 1902. The small 5-shot revolvers were double action only, fitted with a 2, 3, 3 1/4, 3 1/2, or 6 inch round barrel, blue or nickel finish, and fitted with black hard rubber grips. This gun is as described, is fitted with a 3 1/2 inch barrel, pearl grips, and is nickel finished. It retains all of its original nickel finish, with only some assorted minor handling marks. The bore is shootable, with sharp rifling, but does have some spotting. The left pearl grip panel fits well and is very nice, the right panel is cracked and chipped. The actions functions perfectly. A good looking gun. Includes a period correct holster made by maker I cannot read and patent dated 1872.||
|This is a totally original and completely matching (including the magazine) Artillery Luger, chambered dated 1918. Finding a nearly 100 year old Artillery Luger with and original matching magazine is highly unusual. Being built in 1918, near the end of thee war, and being in such good condition, it must not have ever been issued. The blue and straw are excellent. The grips show some wear to the checkering especially on the right side, but htere are no cracks or chips. The bore is bright and shiny. This is really a nice Artillery and would be an asset to anyone's collection.||
|The Model 62 Winchester is a later/modern version of the Winchester model 1890. They were made from 1932 to 1958, with over 409,000 manufactured. The little slide action rifles were fitted with a 23 inch round or oxtagon barrel, full blue finished, and were chambered in .22 S, L, ? LR interchangeably. This rifle retains most all of its original blue finish with some thinning from the forearm rubbing against the barrel, and assorted handling marks and minor spotting. The stock and forearm retain all of their original finish with only some minor handling marks and dings. The bore is bright, with sharp rifling, and the action is tight and functions as new. A very nice Winchester Model 62, would be a great collectable or shooter, or both.||
|Unique looking 7-shot personal protection derringer. It disassembles/assembles easily, and is fully functional, even the manual safety works. The gun is nicely engraved and it stands out sharply, even though the frame has lost most all of its original sliver finish, check out the checkered back-strap. The cylinder/barrel retains about 40% of its original blue fiinsh. It is all numbers matching. If all else fails, it turns into a brass knuckle. A very nice example of its type.||
|The 125th Anniversary Colt SAA Commemorative was manufactured in 1961 to celebrate the 125th birthday of Colt Manufacturing. There were 7,390 of these guns made with this one being the 3,450th one made. It is new/unfired and comes in its original wood presentation case. It retains all of its original finishes, with the exception of a spot on the left side of the hammer. The wood presetation cas is in excellent condition, with only a few very minor handling marks. Also included is a 125th Anniversary key chain. I feel these are sleepers of the Colt SAA's, especially since they are 2nd Generation guns.||

|According to the "Blue Book" this rifle was only made between 1914 and 1928. This "Special Grade" is quite rare and in 41 years we have never seen another. it has deluxe wood and checkering which is not found on the standard grade. It also has presentation engraving on the receiver: LEE HUNT TAYLOR, ITHACA, N.Y. Sept. 23, 1946. It would be interewsting to find out more about Mr. Taylor. The other special features is a special order Lyman tang sight that would have to be unique to this model rifle. Unfortunately the metal is an old reblue, and shows some pitting of the metal under the blue. This rifle is rare enough to be collectable as is, but it could be refinished again with a proper rust blue to enhance its value.||
|New in the box Ruger P94 with Integral Tac-Star Laser Sight. These are somewhat rare, having been manufactured in 1994 only, reportedly only 1,836 were manufactured. The laser works perfectly, as does the action on the gun. Pistol comes with its original box and all paper-work. You don't see one of these very often.||

|A nice pair of antique brass barrel flint pistols, circa 1800, marked "KETLAND", but made in Belgium. The Ketland family of English gun makers was famous for high quality firearms through out the 18th and early 19th Century. One of the sons, Thomas, immagrated to the Philadelphia area in the late 1700's and founded Ketland ? Co., maker of fine guns and gun parts for the trade. While these guns were not made by Ketlan, but by some unknown Belgian maker, they are still of good quality and have survived in excellent working condition. they are 100% original and idebtical in configuration. The brass barrels are 7 3/4 inches in length and are approximately .60 caliber. Guns of this type are generally referred to as "Trade Guns", and they very often carry the name of more famous makers.||

The case itself is in great condition, with few handling marks. Also comes with all paper-work and 4 Wilson moon clips.||

They were made from 1952 to 1963, in serial number range, 206626 to 581471. This 1960 vintage Featherweight is as described and is chambered in .270 Win. and fitted with a 22 inch barrel. The gun is in excellent condition, retaining 98% of its original blue finish, with only some thinning on the bolt and sharp edges. The floorplate and trigger guard retain about 95% of their original finish, with thinning on the sharp edges.

|A late WWII Inland Carbine, dated 12/44, in
the 6,698,xxx serial range. It's original to that
date, with all the new type III updates, including bayonet
lug, adjustable rear sight, round bolt, and flip safety.
Stock is properly marked with the large ordnance wheel on the
right side of the stock, and "IO" in the sling slot. There
is no "P" proof which would indicate arsenal refinishing.
Overall, the gun retains approximately 85% original finish
and a near perfect bore. These are becoming difficult
to find in this untouched condition.
|The Colt Police Positive Target Model (Second Issue, Model "C") 6-shot revolvers were made from 1926 to 1941. They were fitted with a 6 inch barrel, adjustable rear and front sights, checkered walnut grips, were either blue or nickel finished, and were chambered in .22LR, .22 WRF, .32 Colt, or .32 New Police.

It is in excellent condition, retaining 98-99% of its original blue fiinsh, with some minor thinning on the sharp edges of the barrel, cylinder, and frame. The bore is bright, with sharp rifling, and the action functions smoothly, appears to have been fired very little. All screw heads are un-molested, including the very small sight screws. The grips have a few minor handling dings on the butt/bottom only, no chips or cracks. An excellent example of its type, a very attractive little Colt Target .22.||
|Starting in 1925 Colt produced the Police
Positive .32 Target Model on the new heavier frame.
They stopped production 10 years later in 1935 with a total
production of only 3,351, compared to the 15,741 of the .22
heavy frame target revolvers. That makes this varient
one of the lowest production revolvers made by Colt.
This example was made in 1932 when the USA's economy was in
a depression and not many shooters could afford such a nice revolver.
The overall condition is excellent with a mint bore, nearly
perfect grips and 98% blue. It does have a few very minor
isloated rust specks on the frame that are visable in the pictures.
It would be hard to improve on this target model for either the collector
or target shooter.
|The Winchester 1866 was made from 1866 to 1898, with about 170,101 manufactured. The guns were made in rifle and carbine configuration, of which 4 distinct Models were made, with the carbines being equipped with 20 inch barrels, and rifles equipped with a 24 or 27 inch (Musket) barrel. This 1866 Rifle is a Third Model, is equipped with a 24 inch barrel and is chambered in .44 Rim Fire. It is in original condition and appears to be in above average condition, with no restoration or modifications made to the wood or metal. The bore is shootable with sharp rifling, but is somewhat rough from minor surface corrosion, and the action is tight and operates perfectly. A good looking 1866, and a nice example of its type.||
|Very nice example of its type, a Mauser "Banner" Standard Modell rifle manufactured sometime in the early to mid 1930's. Overall this all numbers matching gun retains about 70-80% of its original blue finish and the wood retains most of its original finish, with only some minor handling marks. The bore is bright, with sharp rifling, and the action is tight and functions as new.

The bore is bright, with sharp rifling, and the action is tight and functions perfectly. The grips are in very fine condition and retain all of their original finish, with only some assorted handling marks. These are getting hard to find, especially in this condition.||
|This 1873 Model Springfield "Trapdoor" is one of very few that remains in original configuration. Most were taken out of service and/or upgraded with improved sights, three click tumblers, redesigned cleaning rods, etc.. This gun, manufactured in 1876-77 was originally assembled with the then newly designed short wrist, and long comb stock, inspected by Erskine Allen, and so marked with his oval cartouche. The gun retains approximately 85% of its original finish, has a near perfect bore, and is tight and crisp. It is totally 100% original. Of further interest, is was supposedly given to one Albert Ross, Admiral USN by his friend and hunting companion, Theodore Roosevelt (please see attached affidavitts ).

|Unusual Remington Model 572SB/Routledge 22 LR pump action smoothbore. The gun is in excellent condition, retaining about 99% of its original finishes, with only some very minor handling marks. Nice little Remington.||
|The Type 97 Sniper Rifle is a Japanese bolt-action
rifle, based on the Type 38 Rifle. Following the standard
practice of the time, it was adapted from an existing
infantry rifle. The only difference between this rifle
and the original Type 38 is that it had a lightened stock,
a single-action hammer, a 2.5 power telescopic sight and a mid-band
setup for a monopod, although later models had this deleted.
The rifle entered service in 1937. When fired, the mild 6.5x50mm
Arisaka cartridge gave off little flash or smoke and made counter-sniper
activity difficult. The lack of flash and smoke comes from the length
of the barrel; a 797 millimetres (31.4 in) long barrel allows cartridge
propellant to fully burn and attain the optimum combination of
accuracy and bullet velocity. The scope was offset to the left,
to allow stripper clip loading. Like other Mauser pattern rifles,
it has a five round box magazine. The rifle can be loaded with
either a 5 round stripper clip, or single rounds.
The Type 97 was manufactured at the Nagoya Arsenal and Kokura Arsenal, with the bulk of them made in Nagoya, Japan.

|Made for the South American country of Columbia, they were one of the last bolt action rifles made for military use. It was not a popular design due to the fact that most military rifles were semi-automatic by that time. This rifle is "Brand New". It is full of cosmoline and we are sure that it is unfired. It even comes with a mint matching serial numbered bayonet. It would be impossibel to improve on!||

|This gun, serial number 28746, was shipped to B. Kittridge ? Co., Cincinnati, OH in July 1876, in a crate of 25 similar guns. All were fitted with ivory stocks and chambered in 45 Long Colt. At this time, B. Kittridge was one of five large distributors known as thee "Allies". The other four were all located in New York City, but all five agreed to take unopened cases of either 25 or 50 revolvers, and in return, they received an additional discount from Colt. All guns in these large cases were shipped with blue finish and either wood or ivory grips. Depending upon demand, thee "Allies" would then change the finish on some from the standard blue to bright nickel. Hammers were usually left with their color case-hardened finish, and the screws, triggers and cylinder pins were left blue. This made for a very attractive gun, and the nickel finish was more durable than the blue. Many grips were changed by individual owners tosuite their fancy, but probably not more than 5% were shipped from Colt with factory ivory grips. This is an all original Peacemaker from that period, that is still in excellent working condition with no additions or subtractions since it left B. Kittridge in 1876, with original, one piece, factory ivory grips. A Colt Historical Letter accompanies the gun.||
|This turn of the century Single Action, serial number 210723 was shipped from the factory in 1901 to customer in St. Paul, MN.

In addition, this gun was ordered with two piece mother of pearl grips which fit very well on the gun today and are in excellent condition. On the back-strap is engraved the name, "Ewing L. Rafferty", and while this is not mentioned in the factory letter, the quality and the style of the work appears to be factory original. To find a gun like this today is very rare. Normally, the pearl has been chipped or broken, and have usually been replaced long ago with something more durable. This is an attractive, 100% honest Colt, that is still crisp and tight.||
|The DWM Luger Artillery was manufactured from 1914 to 1918, the height of World War I. This 1917 Artillery is a very nice example of its type, retaining about 95-98% of its original blue finish.

The bore is bright, with sharp rifling, and the action functions perfectly. This is a all numbers matching gun, except for the magazine, which is from a 1920 Commercial (no number on the wood base).

|Usually referred to as the "Lindsay", 1000 of these unusual Civil War muskets were manufactured by J.P. Lindsay, New York in 1863 and 1864. They were of standard .58 Caliber, but were loaded with two charges in the single barrel, one over the other, but fired separately with two hammers. The right hammer fired the front load, and the left, the rear load. While unique among muskets, they did not prove reliable and often fired both loads simultaneously. Consequently, the government contract was not renewed. This specimen may be unfired and it may have not been issued. It remains in near new, original condition, with a perfect bore, and like new functioning action. A unique Civil War era musket, in fantastic condition.||

The forearm is also tipped with a matching horn insert. The barrels are 28 inches long and are “in proof” with 2 ? inch chambers, and are choked .005 and .015 (improved cylinder and modified). They are spotless inside and out, retain well over 95% of the original blue, and have automatic ejectors. To complete this fine shotgun, it comes in its original oak and leather maker’s case with the full complement of accessories. It is not often that we are able to offer such a desirable 20 gauge shotgun for sale, and according to the Blue Book a new Westley Richards would sell for 42,000 British Pounds plus extra for the engraving, for a total of $75,000+. If you want to own one of the finest iconic English shotguns, this is your chance.||

Army/New Navy Colt service revolver, this gun was made
between 1905 and 1909 in the serial range 10001 to 10926,

Because they saw heavy use, very few of these are found in
this pristine condition.
|One of the real rarities of WWII-a factory presentation handgun, given to the commanding officer who was placed in charge of the FN factory in Herstal Belgium at the close of the war. Lt. Col. E.H. Hoffman was a American Ordnance officer during WWII, as well as a machinist, and served in the German Theatre when Germany occupied Belgium, at the rank of Captain. At the end of the war he was put in charge of the FN Factory to assist them in retooling. At the end of this detail, he was presented with this pistol, a 9mm Kurz or .380 ACP, Model 1910, Browning patent, factory engraved in scroll leaf pattern, with his name, "CAPT. E.H. HOFFMAN" inscribed over the chamber on the slide. The grips are finely checkered, burl walnut. The gun is in excellent, original condition, with 85-90% of the military blue finish remaining.

|Did you know Winchester had at one time manufactured
a pistol, we didn't, this is the first one we have ever
seen. Per the Flayderman's Guide, pages 322 and
323: A Single Shot Winchester Pistol. Occasionally
finds its way to collectors. For many years considered
as Winchester "curiosa" and merely a "lunch box special"
ie. made by factory employees on their own initiative and time,
there is evidence that Winchester seriously considered making
the gun. 1919 dated, very detailed factory drawings
and a letter of that same year to a Winchester dealer alluded
to their production. All utilize the bolt action and shortened
barrel of the Model 1902 boy's single shot rifle, blued finish.
Large, flat, saw handle frame usual; iron type mentioned and
walnut grips. Caliber .22RF.
The pistol is in fine condition, retaining about 50-60% of its original blue finish on the barrel and receiver, the saw handle grip frame retains all of its original nickel (?) plating, and the grips retian most all of their original finish, with assorted handling marks. The bore has visable rifling, but is rough. The action functions perfectly. It appears to still wear its original sights, which are in great condition. An unusual and very rare handgun.

It retains about 85% of its original nickel finish, is in good working order, the bore is shootable, has some minor corrosion, and the grips are in very good condition.

They were equipped with a 2, 3 (most common), 3 ?, 3 ?, or 6 inch barrel, finished in blue or nickel, fitted with black rubber grips, double action only, and were chambered in .32 S?W. This mid 1890’s vintage gun is finished in nickel, is fitted with a 3 inch barrel, and has beautiful factory S?W gold colored medallion pearl grips. The gun is in like new condition, appearing to have been fired very little, if at all, since leaving the factory. The bore is perfect and the action is tight and functions like a new one.

A very nice and clean 1895 Winchester.||

|Purdey Best Grade Sidelock Ejector 20 Gauge.
As most shotgun experts know, Purdey makes some of the finest shotguns
in the world, and this 20 gauge is proof positive.
It was manufactured in 1935 during the period
between the two World Wars, which is generally agreed
to be the pinnacle of Purdey's production. The barrels
were originally chambered for 2 3/4 shells and are 26 inches
long and are choked .005 (improved cylinder) and .010
(modified), which are the perfect chokes for most upland
game. The straight grip English stock has a 14 1/2 inch
length of pull to the checkered butt. The wood is Turkish
Walnut with nearly all of the original finish and very nice fiddle
back grain running up to the grip. It weighs just under
5 lbs. 12 oz. and balances perfectly between the hands.
