I am listing this as modern as it was made in the fairly recent past. This is a Thompson Center .50 caliber percussion rifle and is quite massive. This rifle looks to have been kit built. The owner built several custom made percussion rifles but on the ones he would have used for hunting he used a more durable type of firearm that he wouldn't have minded to 'scratch'. Having said that I don't believe that this rifle has been used much at all. The wood is in great consition with no wear and the barrel doesn't look to have much wear to it at all either. The lock and hammer still have practically all of the case hardening left on them. This is a two trigger -set trigger- set up and the action works perfectly. This rifle has a steel buttplate with brass triggerguard. There is not a nosecap and looks like there never was. The rifle is 42 1/2 inches long with a 27 inch octagonal rifled barrel that looks to have been a subtle finish applied to it. This rifle should make a good Deer hunter in the fall. The rear sight is a more modern sight being adjustagle with the front sight is the typical blade sight. No cheekpiece on this one. Take a look at the pics! For this one $250.00

I am listing this as modern as it was made in the fairly recent past. This is a Connecticut Valley Arms "Hawken Type" percussion rifle that looks to have been a kit build. The owner built several custom made percussion rifles but on the ones he would have used for hunting he used a more durable type of firearm that he wouldn't have minded to 'scratch'. That being said I don't believe that this one was used much. It is a .50 caliber weapon with a heavy rifled octagon barrel. The entire piece measures 44 inches long with a 28 inch barrl. The rifle looks pretty good but I am sure it was made years ago. There is some 'burning' off of the color at the nipple and a few scratches on the barrel from use. This one is a set trigger model and it works perfectly. The stock looks great with no cracks or scratches and does have a patchbox and a cheekpiece on the reverse. The rear sight is a more modern sight while the front sight is a large blade sight. The triggerguard is brass and so is the nose cap, ramrod thimbles and barrel lock escutcheons. It's a nice piece and ready for deer hunting in the fall. For this one $265 OBO

Here we have a Belgium Browning Semi-Automatic rifle in .270 only. 1968 Browning Catalog Cover. This is the issue introducing the sporting version of the new Browning BAR designed by Bruce Browning, the son of Val Browning. The BAR Sporting Version -- Interesting Facts. The Browning BAR sporting version is certainly a distinct and separate rifle from the military BAR M1918, but its design is the result of Browning's unmatched understanding and expertise with automatic rifles that started with John M. Browning. His grandson, Bruce Browning, was the driving force behind today's BAR. A large team of automatic firearms experts at the FN factory in Belgium also played a key role in its development. This group of FN automatic rifle designers, lead by Marcel Olinger, began serious work on the project code named "Carbine 66," with full-scale development and testing done throughout 1966 in preparation for an official 1967 product launch. The original prototypes had the distinctive scalloped receiver, which all early BARs had. The trigger group assembly was reliable, but complex. The design required the disassembly of the buttstock from the receiver to remove the trigger group. BARs at that time came with your choice of a right or left handed safety, but they were not reversible. All calibers were built on a long action length receiver.
This particular Vintage firearm is the exact type showing on that Browning Catalog Cover from 1968 with the scroll work and the Pronghorn Antelope on the receiver. There is also scroll work on the magazine door and on the trigger guard. This firearm is the FN produced firearm and not the ones assembled in Portugal. This one is serial numbered 924XXM69 meaning that it was produced in 1969. The firearm is in excellent condition with very light wear to it. It’s been used but not abused. There is one small blemish on the 22 inch barrel but otherwise fine and the bore is excellent. The walnut wood is in very good condition and it has the original hard Browning butt plate present. There are a couple of very minor dings in the wood. The rear sight is a folding sight. I believe this firearm to be a Grade 2 Deluxe version that was made from 1967-1974. The receiver has been factory drilled and tapped but no scope was ever mounted to it. This firearm has the original Quick Draw sling on it that was placed on it when it was new. Nice Nice excellent firearm!!! $995.00

Here we have a brand new in the box, Smith & Wesson M&P 45 Shield!
Smith & Wesson M&P .45 ACP Shield. 3.3" BBL No Thumb Safety
Smith & Wesson’s new M&P SHIELD™ is a slim, concealable, lightweight, striker-fired polymer pistol. The new M&P SHIELD features a slim design combined with the proven and trusted features found in the M&P Pistol Series. From the pistol’s easily concealed one-inch profile to its optimized 18-degree grip angle, the M&P SHIELD offers professional-grade features that provide consumers with simple operation and reliable performance.
Smith & Wesson is going to make a lot of people happy with the announcement of new M&P Shield concealed carry pistols without manual safeties. The original Shield pistols have thumb safeties on the side. A small but welcome change, as many people who choose to carry a concealed handgun believe that there shouldn’t be extra steps between drawing and shooting a gun. Manual safeties add a layer of security but also add an extra step when seconds matter most. Smith & Wesson heeded the call and is now delivering a “No Safety” version of the Shield. These polymer-framed striker-fired single-stack subcompacts have quickly become some of America’s favorite concealed-carry pistols with their solid capacity, low recoil and compact package. Everything else remains the same, so people will be able to use the same magazines, night sights and aftermarket accessories like holsters and laser sights. The “No Safety” Shields have the same 18-degree grip angle, the same oversized trigger guard for use with gloves, the same low-profile takedown lever and low-profile slide stop. The only change is that these new Shields don’t have thumb safeties.
The reality of protection is that you never know when you’ll need it. We took the power and features of our full sized M&P pistols and put them into a slim, lightweight pistol the size of your hand. The M&P Shield is an easy to conceal pistol that offers professional grade features with simple operation and reliable performance day or night. One million Shield owners can’t be wrong.
Features • New aggressive grip texture for M&P®45 SHIELD™ • Front cocking serrations • Incorporates the design features of the M&P Shield line of firearms • Extremely thin and lightweight - can be comfortably carried all day • 18 degree grip angle for natural point of aim • Striker-fired for short consistent trigger pull, every time • Backed by Smith & Wesson’s Lifetime Service Policy • Armornite® Durable Corrosion Resistant Finish
Comes with two 6 +1 magazines and a finger extension on one of them for those 'bigger' hands!
This is a brand new, never fired handgun in the original box. This handgun retails for $479.00 but our price of $405.00 makes it great quality at an affordable price!!! Check out the pics!

Here we have a couple of new North American Arms small single action revolvers. Here is some history on the company:
North American Arms History North American Arms is a United States firearms manufacturing company that specializes in pocket pistols and mini revolvers. Sandy Chisholm bought North American Arms in 1991 and has driven the company to become more successful since then. The small semi-automatic pistols and mini revolvers made by North American Arms are easy-to-carry, which is one of the reasons why these guns are perfect for everyday self-defense, concealed carry, and undercover law enforcement work. Besides the obvious practicality of North American Arms' petite guns, many buyers and collectors enjoy the novelty of the more vintage-looking designs complete with bluing or gold plating and mother of pearl handles. Some North American Arms mini revolvers are even able to fold into their own grips, making them safe to carry on a belt clip or in a gun holster. North American Arms' mini revolvers are made in .22 Short, .22 Long Rifle and .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire caliber as well as in .22 Black powder cap and ball. Semi-automatic pistols made by North American Arms are chambered for .25 NAA, .32 ACP, .32 NAA and .380 ACP. Together this range of guns offers buyers the perfect size, weight, and firepower for them.
1. This first North American Arms mini revolver is the sidewinder. It’s cylinder swings out for loading making it easier to load and unload. This particular little revolver is in .22 Magnum. The grips are perfect as is the entire stainless steel revolver. Comes in it’s own little case with padlock. For tis piece $350.00
2. Here’s the 2nd North American Arms mini revolver. It’s also in new condition and comes in it’s own metal lock box. This little six shot is single action and fires .22 shorts. It’s a well made little stainless revolver with hardwood grips and is extremely easy to conceal. This is not a sidewinder so the cylinder has to come out to load but it’s easy to do. Nice!!! $285.00

Here we have a very nice COLT GOLD GUP NATIONAL MATCH MARK IV/SERIES '70 .45 caliber pistol in box. The National Match M1911 Pistols are hand fitted and tuned for the National Match competitions which began at Caldwell, NJ and became the Camp Perry match. Among their numbers are some of the most beautiful and accurate pistols ever built. There are two kinds: the “National Match” pistols which were built by government armorers for the Army Marksmanship Unit for the Camp Perry competition, and the Colt National Match pistols which were produced by Colt for the retail market. In 1957 Colt began to produce “Gold Cup National Match” pistols which they produced until 1970. There was then a “Series 70 Gold Cup National Match, produced between 1970 and 1983. This particular pistol is one that was produced during that time. The Hartford, Connecticut-based works of Mr. Samuel Colt is synonymous with some of the best, not to mention the most classic, of all 1911 model pistols. Perhaps the pinnacles of their efforts were the Gold Cup National Match MKIV 70 series of handguns.
The Gold Cup
When introduced in 1970 (hence the term ’70-series), the National Match MKIV Gold Cup pistol was the ultimate in .45ACP target pistols. After much feedback from the shooting community, Colt constructed this gun to be as complete as possible right out of the box. Remember, back then, there wasn’t fifty companies making IDPA/IPSC race guns made to order. Competitive shooting itself with large caliber military-grade pistols was in its infancy compared to what we know today. The gun had many features unheard of in a factory pistol. This included an adjustable trigger stop that limited finger movement so that the aim wasn’t skewed, grooves on the front of the receiver grip and wide super smooth, tuned trigger, and a special barrel and bushing (more on that later). The slide had a flared ejection port and a flat grooved top rib as well as angled (not strait as in GI 1911) rear serrations. The bluing on these guns is very deep and reflective, which was very different from military Parkerization. The thin beavertail on these guns is very different from comp 1911s today but was still handy and workable. Colt shipped these with an Accurizer barrel and bushing. This is what set the whole series apart from what came before it. Series 70 guns are a unique evolutionary development in the saga of the 1911. They are different from every Colt .45 that came before it. While looking at it, everything looks the same on the outside; the insides are a little different. These guns had an altered barrel bushing that had a ‘collet’ bushing with a series of rings to keep contact with the barrel. This made the gun more accurate and alleviated the change to the gun’s firing pin safety block (or lack thereof). Some of the best production guns on the market and could be considered one of the first practical/tactical pistols that came direct from the factory.
This particular pistol is in very good condition rating about 85% as it was used but not alot and the bore is excellent! There are a couple of minor spots from being left in the styrofoam insert in the box but not too bad at all. The action works well and it feels good in the hand. The pistol has the original wooden grips with it but has the after market Bianchi grips on it now. Also comes with the Owners manual and the two tools and the original box that is serial numbered to the pistol. A wonderful .45 Caliber Pistol!!! This is a very nice piece! Check out the pics!!! $1195.00

Here we have a vintage Smith & Wesson topbreak revolver in .38 caliber . This is the double action 4th Model and approximately 326,300 were manufactured between1895-1909 with the serial number range being between 322,701 through 539,000. The serial number on this one is 3405xx indicating that this one was made before 1898 so thusly, is an antique except in California where the rules are crazy. This one works perfectly and still has a lot of original blue to it, probably 50% or so and the rest is a nice dark patinal. The markings are all clear and crisp and the original hard rubber grips are in excellent unbroken or uncracked condition with the S&W monogram on them. The S&W monogram is also stamped into the frame as it should be. The 3 1/4 inch barrel has an excellent bore! All in all for this year this is a very good plus condition example of an early Smith and Wesson topbreak. For this piece $395.00

Here we have a nice Savage Model 1917 Pistol! This is essentially a Savage Model 1907 which is a semi-automatic pocket pistol produced by the Savage Arms Company of Utica, New York. This pistol is in .32 ACP. Although smaller in size, it is derived from the .45 semi-automatic pistol Savage submitted to the 1906-1911 US Army trials to choose a new semi-automatic sidearm. After several years of testing the Savage pistol was one of two finalists but ultimately lost to the Colt entry, which became famous as the Colt Model 1911. 181 of these .45 ACP pistols were returned to Savage after the testing and sold on the civilian market. The Model 1907 is often erroneously called a Model 1905 because of the date Nov. 21, 1905 date stamped into the top of the slide on all Savage semi-automatic pistols. This is the date Elbert Searle was awarded one of his firearm patents, which were the design basis for all the Savage semi-automatic pistols. Advertised with the slogan "Ten shots quick!", the Model 1907 was very popular because, despite its small size, it had a 10-round double-stack magazine. The advertising included a number of early celebrity endorsers, including William "Buffalo Bill" Cody, Bat Masterson, and the Pinkerton Agency. Teddy Roosevelt was even presented with a Model 1907. Much of the advertising in the popular press played on the ability of an otherwise defenseless woman to use the Savage to subdue burglars and "tramps." A safety lever is located on the left side of the pistol, at the upper rear of the grip. Though it appears to have an external hammer, it is actually a striker-fired gun; the "hammer" is actually a cocking lever. Model 1907s made from 1913 until 1917 had a collared barrel and a loaded chamber indicator, allowing the shooter to tell by touching the shell ejection port whether a cartridge was chambered. The Model 1907 uses no screws (even the grips snap into place) and is simple to strip. The grips were made from gutta-percha, though some early production examples had metal grips. In 1912 the Model 1907 underwent a major design revision modifying almost every major component. As with most semi-automatics, the pistol is readied for firing by pulling back and releasing the slide, which inserts a cartridge into the chamber and cocks the pistol. The recoil from firing a cartridge automatically extracts and ejects the empty shell, cocks the firing pin and loads another cartridge into the chamber, ready for firing. The Model 1917 is mechanically the same as and shares almost all of its parts with the final version of the Model 1907 (including a smaller, thinner cocking lever "hammer"), but with a significantly larger handle. Because this required larger grips, the Model 1917 uses one screw through each grip to hold them to the pistol frame as does this pistol. These grips are also hard rubber and one has a small chip on the bottom that is shown in one of the pics. This paricular fiream was manufactured from 1917 to 1928. This pistol is in very nice condition overall probably being polished out at one time as the finish is better than the worn rubber grips. I do not believe that this is a refinish. The action works well and everything appears to be as it should be. Overall I would rate it as very good. For this piece $375.00

Here is a real nice IMPORT Mauser Model 1914. The Model 1914 is a very similar to the Model 1910 but the caliber is 7.65 caliber (.32 ACP). Also, the overall size of the gun is slightly larger than the small .25 cal 1910, mostly to accommodate it’s larger caliber. The grips are not as straight backed as the 1910, they have a slight curvature to them. (not as much curvature as the model 1934). Grips can be black plastic (“Franzite”), hard rubber or checkered wood wrap around grip. This one has the checkered wood wrap around grip. It has a 3 inch barrel with excellent bore and an 8 round magazine and was made from 1914-1934.
This particular weapon was produced between the wars as it is marked GERMANY. The German guns were not marked GERMANY unless they were be sold commercially outside of the country. After WW1 ended and before WW2 started Mauser sold these pistols commercially around the world to keep the factory working as their economy was in shambles! Serial numbers from 40,000 to 180,00 will be seen with German military acceptance stamps. This one is well higher than that at 3405XX Nice pistol! $550.00 REDUCED BY THE OWNER TO $400.00 !!

Here is a WW2 Smith and Wesson 38/200 British Service Revolver (S&W Caliber) - There were over 571,629 of these models produced between October 1941 and May 1945 for the British Common wealth countries. These countries include the Union of South Africa (21,347), Canada (45,328), and Australia (8,000). The remaining 384,100 shipped between 1941 and the end of World War II were supplied by the U.S. Army Ordnance through the lend lease program to Britain for distribution. This revolver is one made before making the Victory Models with the prefix ‘V’ before the serial number. The ‘V’ Prefix was used early in 1942 starting with V-1 and ending in August 1945 with VX811119. This revolver had a new cylinder that was rechambered after WW1 from 5 rounds originally to 6 rounds. Also, this revolver has the checkered walnut grips with the silver S&W medallion that was used until January 1942 after which only smooth walnut grips were made. This revolver is marked Smith and Wesson on the reverse side of the barrel and 38 S&W CTG on the obverse side of the barrel. The frame is marked MADE IN U.S.A. and the side cover has the Smith and Wesson logo on it. That side cover is a dull finish while the rest of the revolver is a higher gloss black finish. I don’t believe that this revolver was used much as the bore is in excellent condition and most of the original finish is on this piece. The action works fine and there’s a lot of case color on the trigger and the hammer. The original lanyard ring is present as well. There are proof marks on this revolver but the most interesting is where the original English markings of the Crown and Broad Arrow have been overstamped the Austrian Police designation. This .38/200 British Service Model Revolver "Lend Lease" pistol remained in service after the end of the war and was issued by the Allied Occupation Forces (USFA) to the Austrian Police. Interesting history! This is a fine condition pistol of mixed heritage! For this piece $850.00 REDUCED BY THE OWNER TO $550.00

We just got in 2 Winchester Carbines that were made in the first half of the 20th century.
This Winchester 94 is also in 30 W.C.F. (30-30) and is in pretty nice condition! This carbine was made sometime from 1943 to 1948 because no records exist from that time! This one has had a rubber pad put on the butt stock and has had a leather sling added. This one retains most of the original bluing and the wood is in good condition as well. Action is great and the bore is great as well! This is a really pretty one. It’s not perfect but it’s pretty! All original except the butt pad and you can tell that it’s been there for ever! $750.00 REDUCED BY THE OWNER TO $525.00 !!!

Here is the second ’94 Winchester and it’s in pretty good condition as well. There are a couple of spots of corrosion on the receiver that probably happened while being used outside and getting a couple of spots of rust. Heck, cowboys carried these in the rain, dust storms, drought and whatever so it’s not unusual to have some finish problems, otherwise most bluing is still here. This carbine is in 32 W.S and the bore is also sweet on this one. This carbine functions as it should and will be a great shooter for you. The markings are clear and sharp and ‘PROOF STEEL’ is also on the barrel of this one. This carbine was made in 1949. The stocks are in great condition with a ding here and there but no breaks or cracks that I can see. This one has had a nylon strap and plastic swivels put on it at some point but I believe this to have been put on after 1969 as I don't think that this kind of nylon strap or plastic swivels were available then. We’re not really sure when that happened. Also there is a rubber butt pad on this one as well. For this nice carbine $795.00 REDUCED BY THE OWNER TO $525.00 !!!

Here is something that I am still doing researching on. This is a coach gun 12 gauge double barrel shotgun that was marked on one lock plate AMERICAN GUN CO. NEW YORK. The name is listed in the Standard Catalog of Firearms as a Crescent Firearms Co. shotgun. American Gun Co. was a trade name used of shoguns wholesaled by H&D Folsom, a very large sporting goods supplier from the late 1800's until the 1930's. We are not questioned the authenticity of the shotgun but the stock is marked W F & CO (Wells Fargo & Company) and between the barrels with the fore stock off it’s marked W.F. & CO. as well as on the inside of the receiver. We are actively looking for an expert to authenticate the markings. It has been written that 95% of Wells Fargo marked items are considered bogus so we want to make sure. The shotgun itself is in excellent cleaned condition with a tight barrel to receiver condition and the hammers work flawlessly. The bores are very good just needing a scrubbing. The top of the barrels are marked 'Genuine Armory Steel' and "Genuine Armory Steel" was a trade slogan stamped on shotgun barrels by Crescent Fire Arms Company during the period from 1893 to 1932 per my research. The shotgun has a large ring on the butt stock for wearing a sling that goes over the shoulder. The sling is marked J.A. BISHOP MAKER, EL PASO, TX . I did find several items made by J.A.Bishop online and they were movie props for MGM Studios. The shotgun also comes with a pine wooden case that has had a nice lining and top added to it. The owners said that this shotgun was carried in this box when on the stagecoach. They stated that this gun was not carried on top but was an extra carried in the coach itself. This shotgun and the box along with the strap and the Wells Fargo card were on display in an old Museum that went out of business in 1969. The owners of this piece bought the entire contents of the museum at that time. The Museum was the DE-AQUISITIONED BOVIE MUSEUM THAT WAS IN VIRGINIA CITY, MONTANA . Interesting enough Jack Slade, Pony Express co-founder and gunfighter, was lynched here. Also with the shotgun is a card about the size of a playing card and you can see what it on it in the pics. Also there is a long piece of paper with the writting on it "Property of Wells Fargo Stage Line. Salt Lake City, Utah U.S." As soon as well get it authenicated we will post a price. Any comments are appreciated just e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks and take a look at the pics! It is a beautiful shotgun!!!
We have determined that this is an original firearm and since every Wells Fargo Agency pruchased their own firearms and stamps to mark them it would be impossible to say that this is not correct. The stamps do not look modern and there are no phoney brass plates on it. Rock Island Armory sold nearly this exact shotgun with the same maker but with different stampings and no provision for a shoulder strap. Take a look at the pics and judge for yourself.
