Here is one good 'ol shotgun! This is a Stevens Model No. 89 DREADNAUGHT in 12 guage. This is the model that followed the No. 85 DREADNAUGHT and the only difference is that the 89 has an automatic ejector. This model was made until 1938. It is a top lever break open firearm with exposed hammer. It is a single shot with a 30 inch full choke barrel. The breech of the barrel is extremely thick to take the pressure, check out the pic. It was original blued now lacking color with a case hardened frame. It has a plain walnut pistol grip stock and lipped forearm. The serial number stamped on all parts shown is GZ 30. It's pretty heavy for a single shot weighing 7 1/2 pounds. The bore has a mirror finish. The metal on this shotgun has pepper type patina but no pitting. The Stevens info was cleaned over so it's a little light but most can be seen. The DREADNAUGHT logo looks better. The walnut stock is in good condition with the usual dings here and there from use but it has only two small cracks on the reverse forearm that you can see in the pics. The breaking lever is turned to the left instead of straight behind the hammer but surprisingly it works better there and perhaps was an alteration by a previous owner. This is a good old shotgun and the DREADNAUGHT is kind of hard to find now. I wouldn't be afraid to shoot this one but I would suggest having it checked out by a competent gunsmith. The barrel locks up pretty tight. For this shotgun $125.00
Here we have a whopper of a handgun! This is a Smith and Wesson Model 57 .41 caliber revolver!! This one is the nickel finished model with the 4 inch barrel. The nickel is so bright I had to darken down a couple of the pics to catch the markings. This revolver is a 6 shot .41 caliber revolver and is massive in the hand!!! I have a rather large hand and it feels big in my hand. The firearm looks to have had very little use and is nice and tight. The action works well and the rifling is fine. The grip finish is a little worn but not bad at all. The foam finish is coming off the styrofoam insert in the box and needs redone. The orignal cleaning kit is included with the revolver along with the original paperwork. This revolver was originally purchased new in 1974. This is one nice revolver and it's a quality piece!!! Classic!!! $750.00 Modern Guns 97
Here is a very nice Browning HI-Power Semi-Auto pistol in 9MM. (has to be transfered and no sales to California). The slide is marked BROWNING ARMS COMPANY MORGAN, UTAH & MONTREAL P.C. MADE IN BELGUIM. This piece has been used very little and looks brand new! The grips are etched on one side with am Eagle but are not ivory. Adjustable rear sight. $1,100.00 Modern Guns 96
Here we have a real nice Winchester Model 1894 Saddle Ring Carbine in .32 WS that was made in 1926.
Probably the most famous, and certainly the most popular, hunting rifle in history is the Winchester Model 1894. The Model 94 was the first sporting rifle to sell over 1,000,000 copies. Sales ultimately totaled somewhere around 7,000,000 before the Model 94 was discontinued when the U.S. factory was shut down in 2006. No other sporting rifle has approached those numbers, and it is unlikely that one ever will.
This particular Carbine is in pretty nice condition for a gun that's seen use for 88 years! The barrel exhibits over 94% of the original bluing while the receiver has about 40% of the original bluing left. This gun has not been cleaned and shows a nice patina where the bluing is lacking. The walnut stock is in generally very nice condition with an occasional bump and ding here and there but no cracks or breaks. The 20 inch barrel has most of the bluing left and has a great bore with sharp shiney rifling. All of the markings on the barrel are deep and sharp with little to no wear. The Saddle ring is intact. The action works fine and the original sling is present as well. This is a nice carbine! $1,150.00 Modern Guns 95
We just got in 7 collector/investment grade Winchesters. Take a look at the offering!
WINCHESTER 9422 XTR S-L-L.R. LEVER ACTION RIFLE!
The Winchester 9422 had a 33-year production run and was one of the most popular .22 rifles with numerous variations and special editions for collectors. During the Winchester Model 9422’s 33-year production run—from 1972 through 2005—the well-built and extremely accurate .22 rimfire lever-action embodied our ongoing admiration for the American West and filled the need for an economical look-alike of its big-bore Model 94 counterpart. It’s unsurprising then that the 9422 became one of the most popular rifles in Winchester’s lineup. All of the following rifles have grooved receivers , buckhorn type rear adjustable sights and hooded front sights.
This particular rifle is in outstanding condition with no wear showing to the bluing or to the lettering on the 20 inch long barrel. The stock is finished in gloss and the only thing remotely that I can mention is that there are a couple of minor chips to the finish near the butt plate which I have shown photos of. The stock is factory checkered and just beautiful! This particular rifle is the 9422 XTR Short, Long and long rifle model. The bore is like new! Outstanding quality!!! For this one $1,250.00 Modern Guns 94
WINCHESTER 9422 XTR IN .22 WIN MAGNUM
Here's another Winchester 9422 lever action rifle in .22 Win Magnum and so marked on the 20 inch long barrel. This one is in the same condition as the one listed above except that it doesn't have any minor chips in the finish near the butt plate, however, there are a very, very few very minor dings in the wood. The bluing is outstanding and the bore is like new. Again, this one is finished in a gloss finish on the checkered stock. This particular rifle is the 9422 XTR WIN. MAGNUM. Outstanding quality on this one as well! For this fine example $1,650.00 Modern Guns 93
WINCHESTER 9422 TRAPPER MODEL LEVER ACTION WINCHESTER IN S-L-AND L.R.
This is the beautiful shorter model Trapper with a 16 inch barrel length. This one is not a gloss finish but does have the checkering and it's just beautiful! The only thing to mention is a small scratch to the receiver that is not deep just being a surface wear scratch. The bluing has no wear and the lettering is sharp. This is a very nice Trapper Model! For this one $1,550.00 Modern Guns 92
WINCHESTER 9422 TRAPPER MODEL LEVER ACTION WINCHESTER IN .22 MAGNUM WITH BOX!
THE NEXT 3 WINCHESTERS ARE ALL MODEL 61 WINCHESTER SLIDE ACTION RIFLES IN DIFFERENT CALIBERS. HERE THEY ARE!!!
The Winchester Model 61 was the fourth in a series of Slide-Action rifles that Winchester produced. Unlike its predecessors, the Model 61 had no exposed hammer, an attempt by Winchester to compete with other rifles of the day (e.g., Remington). The Model 61 was the hammerless replacement for 1890, 1906 and Model 62, especially when the former two models were dropped from production in 1932. The Winchester Model 61 was produced from 1932 through 1963 with over 342,000 guns sold. All Model 61 guns were of the take-down variety and fitted with a 24 inch round and tapered barrel. The gun had a straight-grip walnut stock and a grooved slide handle. The gun was chambered for short, long, and long-rifle interchangeably, continuing the standard set by the later 1906 Model, and this helped to assure the continued success of the Model 61. These guns could also be ordered from the factory in a variety of configurations. There was also a number of Model 61 that were chambered for single caliber .22 bullets, and these guns bring a premium. The Model 61 is often considered the companion to the model 12 and Model 42 Winchester shotguns.
This first Model 61 is in great condition with a few minor dings on the walnut stock but not bad at all for a rifle that was made in 1952! The bluing is fine only showing wear at the slide on the 24 inch barrel. The lettering on the barrel is sharp as well. The action works flawlessly and the rifing is like new! This rifle is chambered for the Short, long or long rifle. This one definitely did not see much use. For this one $895.00 Modern Guns 90
This second Winchester Model 61 rifle is in similar condition as the first with a little wear to the slide area of the barrel, under the receiver and on some of the high edges but not bad at all. There is also a few minor finish scratches at the rear of the chamber area on the receiver. This one is chambered for the .22 W.R.F.and the bore is fine in the 24 inch barrel. The receiver is not grooved for scope mounts but has been drilled and tapped for them. Now they have screws in the tap holes of which one is obscuring the Winchester proof mark. Also the front sight is bent. This one dates to 1950! Very nice for a 64 year old rifle!!! $1,599.00 Modern Guns 88
Here's the last of the Winchester Model 61 rifles that we have to offer. This one is similar in condition to the others. This one is chambered for the .22 WIN MAG. R.F. cartridge! The is only minor wear to the barrel and slide area. The very muzzle end of the barrel has some wear to it as well but that was probably caused by going in and out of a storage sock. This one was made in 1960 so it's 54 years old! All of the 61's saw some use but not very much at all. They are all beautiful rifles as this one is. The bore in this one is very good but not like new. The receiver has been drilled and tapped for a scope. $1,575.00 Modern Guns 88
Here is a Colt New Police .32 that definitely has seen better days. This model appears similar to the New Pocket Model. The frame is stamped "NEW POLICE". It is chambered for the .32 colt. This piece was originally blued and astonishly there is still a lot of blue on the trigger, hammer and one of the screws otherwise it has no finish. There is pitting near the end of the barrel. Markings are clear. Colt manufactured 49,500 of this model from 1896 to 1907. The New York City Police Department purchased 4,500 of these revolvers. This piece is in generally poor condition with a poor bore. The grips are missing but the action still works although it is stiff and sticky. The serial number is 31906. Restore it as a wall hanger or hang it up as it is. It's still a nice display piece or use it for parts. $125.00 Modern Guns 87
Here we have an excellent condition H&R model 722 (.22 LR, singe-action with 6" octagonal barrel and 7-shot cylinder. Blued w/wood grips. Formally known as the "Trapper" model) and so marked TRAPPER MODEL on the top strap. The barrel is a 6 inch octagon barrel with nice rifling and a blade sight up front. The finish is about 96% on this revolver. The best I've seen! I've had a few and they generally show a lot more wear than this one does. The checkered two piece grips are in very good condition with some dings on the bottom from sticking out of a holster and not being protected. This piece was not used much. The action is fine and it locks up tight. The markings are all sharp, deep and clear and the original blue is bright and hard to photograph without getting glare in the photo. There is some wear to the bluing at the end of the octagon barrel from sliding in and out of the holster. Nice!!! For this piece $475.00 and I don't think you'll find another in this condition. Modern Guns 86
Here is a pretty nice Winchester Model 94 Carbine in .32 Winchester Special cartridge. Winchester Model 1894 (also known as Winchester 94 or Win 94) is a lever-action rifle which became one of the most famous and popular hunting rifles. It was designed by John Browning in 1894 and originally chambered to fire two metallic black powder cartridges, the .32-40 Winchester and .38-55 Winchester. It was the first rifle to chamber the smokeless powder round, the .30 WCF (Winchester Center Fire}. This round was later chambered by Marlin which designated it the .30-30, which used the black powder cartridge nomenclature of using the caliber as the first number and the grains of powder as the second. Marlin used this nomenclature in order not to promote its competitor's products. The .30-30 name finally became synonymous with the cartridge and Winchester ultimately dropped the .30 WCF nomenclature. The 1894 was produced by Winchester Repeating Arms Company through 1980 and then by U.S. Repeating Arms under the Winchester brand until they ceased to manufacture rifles in 2006. The rifles are back in production today, being made by the Miroku company of Japan and imported into the United States by the Browning Arms company of Morgan, Utah.
The Model 1894 has been referred to as the "ultimate lever-action design" by firearms historians such as R. L. Wilson and Hal Herring. The Model 1894 is the rifle credited with the name "Winchester" being used to refer to all rifles of this type and was the first commercial sporting rifle to sell over 7,000,000 units
This particular carbine has the 20 inch barrel. It has the plain walnut straight grip stock with carbine style butttplate. The forarm is a plain walnt uncapped with one barrel band. It is in a solid frame style as all carbiens are. Carbines made prior to 1925 were witted with a saddle ring but this one does not have one. The serial number on this piece dates it to the early 1940's. From 1943 to 1947 no records are available. This one falls within those numbers. The wood is in generally good condition with a chip out of the top of the buttstock. The finish is pretty nice with worn spots to the edges otherwise fine. I can see a name lightly scratched into the reverse receiver but would polish out if you wanted to. The action is great and the bore is fine, crisp and shiney. It has a buckhorn sight on the rear and a raised dovetailed blade sight up front. All of the markings are crisp and sharp. This is a nice Winchester Model 1894 Carbine. $850.00 Modern Guns 84
Here we have a Marlin Model 1897, lever action repeater, precursor of the Model 39 and 39A. When the 1897 came along in that year, it was what we know as the true “Take Down”, as loosening the sideplate screw allows the firearm to be disassembled into 2 halves with the barrel & front receiver unit in one unit & the buttstock & trigger housing unit to be in the other unit. This particular rifle was an improved version of the Model 1892 rifle and came chambered for the .22 rimfire only. This particular rifle has a 24 inch full octagon barrel with a dark bore but sharp rifling. It has a buckhorn rear and blade front sight. The color of the piece has mostly turned to a plum brown finish. The rear buttstock is a trifle loose as it has shrank from age some but still solid as a rock. The tang is drilled for a flip up peep sight, now lacking. The action works fine and it's a pretty piece. The forearm is missing a sliver on the obverse side up by the end cap otherwise fine. The markings are mostly sharp on this piece. Still a nice one and collectible!! $825.00 Modern Guns 83
The 1897 was made only in 22 caliber.
Here is an old Remington Ammunition shipping crate. The crate/box is complete less the top. The paint is faded but you can still see most of it. This box is from Remington Express 12 guage Shotgun Ammunition. The box has nice dovetails and is complete less the top. There is a crack here and there but not in danger of falling apart. Display it with Duck Decoys and Shotgun ammo in your man cave!! The box measures 14 1/2 inches long by 9 1/2 inches wide by 8 1/2 inches tall and has intregal hand grips on each end. For this one $35.00 Modern Guns 82
Here's another Remington Shipping box that's in a lot better condition as far as paint. This one is a very desireable box being for the .410 shotgun shells. This one is also a Remington Express box but with nailed sides. This box is for the 3 inch shells. I have a box of shells and a couple of loose shells on top for effect that are not included with this box. As previously stated the paint is better on this one and this one has the top. The top states 'BLUE POINT AUT? INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA' It's unusual to have these boxes with the original top as usually the bottoms are missing. This one measures a very displayable 14 1/4 long by 6 inches wide and about 7 inches tall. Great little display box!! $75.00 Modern Guns 81
Here is some vintage .33 caliber Winchester Ammuntion that is hard to find! This ammunition is in the vintage blue and yellow boxes.

Here we have a modern Thompson Center 50 caliber muzzleloading rifle in very nice condition. This rifle is modern for hunting deer or target shooting. The rifle is 46 inches long with a 29 inch octagonal rifled barrel. This piece is complete and except for a few dings in the wood and a few light 'brush' scratches to the top of the barrel it would look like nearly new. This rifle has the set trigger set up which makes it a hair trigger. The rear sight has been upgraded to an elevation sight. It has been drilled and tapped for a scope. The lock colors are crisp and the lock functions very well-action is fine. The walnut hardwood stock is in good condition with no cracks or breaks just the aforementioned dings from use in the field. The original ramrod is present as well. The studs for sling swivels are present. No transfer fees or FFL needed for this one-just proof of age over 18 years old. $225.00
Here's another modern muzzle loading rifle that is a Connecticut Valley Arms .45 caliber rifle with set trigger. This piece is overall very nice but obviously was used. It measures about 48 inches long with a 32 inch hexgonal rifled barrel. The wood is good with no breaks or cracks and the mechanics are fine! The bore appears to be very good as well. The lock has case colors and the barrel and triggerguard are mostly browned. The hooded front sight is blued and the elevator piece under the rear sight appears to be black shiney rubber of some sort. The buttplate is browned as well. The lock and hammer have some engraving on them. The patch box and the forestock escuteons appear to be german silver . The ramrod is the original ramrod. This is a nice rifle to take Deer hunting!! $175.00 No transfer fees or FFL needed for this one either-just proof of age. Modern Guns 69
Here's a Trailsman 66 from Iver Johnson and it too is in .22 Caliber LR. This piece has a small area of minor pitting on the barrel just above the cylinder pin and although it's a very good color with the bluing you can see brown spots under it. The grips are plastic and looks to have a small semi circular crack on the bottom portion that runs from the checkering to the inner tang. This is a double action firearm and it works flawlessly. The bore is in excellent condition as well. This firearm was introduced in 1858 and was discontinued in 1975. This revolver has a 4 digit serial number. All markings are crisp. It's still a very nice piece!!! $275.00 Modern Guns 59
Here's another very nice Iver Johnson model .22 SUPERSHOT SEALED EIGHT. This revolver is a double action revolver with an 8 inch barrel. It has a counter bored 8 shot cylinder. It is blued with wooden grips. Manufactured from 1919 to 1957. The bluing is very, very nice on this piece with wear only on the muzzle end from going in and out of a holster. It's another top break model. The cylincer only shows wear to the finish were it was turned as well as a few minor scratches. The rear sight is missing and it looks like someone soldered another to the toggle and it's also missing. There is a little ding to the top rib that you can see in the pics. I can still see case hardening on the hammer and trigger. The one piece walnut grip is in good condition with no cracks or breaks, just dents and bruises on the bottom. The action works fine. Nice bore. For this one.$295.00 Modern Guns 57
This last Iver Johnson is and Iver Johnson Model 844 and under the MODEL 844 on the barrel it says PATENTS PENDING. This is another top break model being a .22 caliber double action revolver with a 6 inch barrel. It has adjustable sights and an 8 shot cylinder. This model was manfactured in the 1950's and is in very, very nice condition! Again, there is minor wear to the muzzle where it went in and out of a holster but other than that this piece is premium!!! It has an unfluted cylinder and the only marks on it are from the cylinder turning. I don't believe that this piece was used much. The hammer and trigger still exhibit all of it's case colors. The one piece walnut grip with checkering is complete and undamaged except for a couple of bruises on the bottom. This is a fine revolver!! $435.00 Modern Guns 56
Here is a North American Arms Sidewinder in .22 magnum! North American Arms has been making high-quality mini revolvers for a long time. They have always been reliable little weapons, carried by thousands of people either as a backup to their primary weapon, or as the only firearm that is small enough to conceal easily, every day. This is a new model called the Sidewinder. The sidewinder has the cylinder that pivots out to the side like the bigger revolvers. Up until now you had to pull the front pin and the entire cylinder came out entirely to load so this is quite an improvement. This is a .22 mag and is a great concealed revolver for self protection. It's a single action model meaning you have to pull back the hammer before firing. It's all stainless steel with nice wooden grips and made in the USA! Comes in the case with paperwork. Brand spanking new and never fired. For this piece $350.00 jmn 2 Modern Guns 53
Here we have a great condition Ruger Bearcat!!
The Ruger Bearcat is a single-action, .22 caliber revolver manufactured by Sturm, Ruger & Co., introduced in 1958. It is based on the classic Remington revolvers of the mid-1800s. Because of its compact size and frame, it is advertised as being ideal for hikers or campers in need of a .22 LR revolver. This particular little .22 revolver is almost in like new condition! There are the smallest lines on the cylinder from turning. This is the steel frame model with the steel triggerguard. This is a totally unmessed with example and sure to please! According to the Ruger website this particular revolver was made in 1965 but it looks like it was made yesterday! Excellent, excellent quality!!! The only thing I see that keeps it from being mint besides the very light turning lines on the cylinder is a couple of the smallest marks on the triggerguard where the color is lacking, other than that this gun would be considered mint- as is very good +++. For this outstanding piece-- $645.00 item jmn 5 Modern Guns 50
Here's an old Iver Johnson .32 S & W short, 5 shot, 3 inch barrel, double action revolver that was made from the late 1890's to about 1920 or so that was marketed under the U.S.REVOLVER CO - MADE IN THE USA, which was marked on the top of the barrel. . This one is serial numbered 78630 so I'm sure it's into the 20th century which means it has to go either to a Curio and Relic license holder or to a Federal Firearms License who can do the transfer for you. This revolver is a "hammerless" model which simply means the hammer is concealed into the frame. The finish is about 50% or so and the double action works fine. The revolver has Pearl grips. One time General George Patton was being interviews and he was asked about his pearl handled revolvers. He said to the guy that his revolvers were ivory handled and the only one's who use pearl handled revolvers were "pimps"!!! Ha Ha Ha!!! The grips are in very good condition but do have a chip here and there. I took a couple of extra pics of the grips because in the earlier pics they look like ivory. They are pearl. Nice old gun and better than my pics!! $165.00 Modern Guns 49
Here we have a Colt Trooper MK III Revolver serial #Y397xx, 22 Mag, 4" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain 99.9% original blue finish with a very faint turn ring on cylinder. The hammer retains strong vivid case colors. The factory checkered walnut grips rate excellent. An excellent condition rimfire trooper revolver. Introduced to the firearms market by the Colt's Manufacturing Company in 1953, the Colt Trooper is a medium frame double-action revolver featuring a six-round cylinder, chambered for .22 and .38 caliber cartridges. This one is for a .22 magnum R.F. (rimfire) and so marked on the barrel.
Here is some info on the MK III
1969 - 1982 In the late 1960s, Colt began to be concerned with a decline in its market share because of price increases brought about by the high labor costs inherent in its manufacturing processes. In response, an entirely new product line of revolvers dubbed the MK III series debuted in 1969. Intended to be the first major advancement of Colt's designs since the beginning of the 20th Century, the MK IIIs used a new 'J' frame and had no parts interchangeability with older models. The new revolvers were considered groundbreaking as they were the first modern revolver designs to employ a state of the art transfer-bar lockwork system. This lockwork was not only more sophisticated, but inherently safer due to its superiority to the older hammer-blocking designs; the revolver could fire only if the trigger was deliberately pulled completely to the rear. It also vastly improved on the earlier design in durability, and offered the advantage of employing sintered iron internal parts rather than expensive forged ones. The sintered parts also allowed for improved fabrication tolerances, and could be given a special heat treatment resulting in a harder more wear-resistant composition. Using these parts virtually eliminated hand fitting, significantly lowering labor costs associated with the assembly and manufacture of the MK III line. The springs used in the Mark III internals were also an improvement. Unlike the older flat style, they were coiled and made entirely of corrosion-resistant stainless steel.
Well, that's probably more than you want to know about this particular weapon. At any rate this is one excellent example of a Colt Trooper MK III! $1195.00 Modern Guns 46
Here we have a First Issue Colt Police Positive in .22 WRF, serial number 4858. This piece has 65 to 70% original blue with the remainder turning a nice plum brown. This piece functions flawlessly and has a very nice bore. The hard rubber grips are complete with some minor scuffs and it looks like a small chip on the bottom of the reverse grip has been repaired. This piece is also know as the Police Positive Target Revolver.
Here are some stats on the Target Revolver
Weighing 22 ounces and available with a blued finish and black hard rubber grips in .22 Long Rifle, .22 WRF, .32 Long (and Short) Colt, and .32 Colt New Police (.32 S&W Long) chamberings, the First issue of this model featured an adjustable open iron sighted 6 inch barrel and was marketed from 1910 to 1925, with checked Walnut grips replacing the rubber ones after 1923. A Second issue was sold from 1926 to 1941 and differed from the First in that it had a slightly heftier frame which upped the weight to 26 ounces; also Colt's nickel finish was offered as an option. In today's collectable market, the .32 New Police version appears to be the most sought after and valuable but this model is sought after as well. For this fine specimen: $695.00 Modern Guns 45
the next 4 are CONSIGNMENTS
Here we have 4 different Harrington and Richardson revolvers of different distinction. The first one is a TRAPPER Model .22 revolver that was made from 1924 to 1941. This one is a 7 shot .22 revolver with a 6 inch barrel. This gun exhibits most of the original blue (65 to 70 %) with some finish lacking here and there. It is a double/single action revolver and works fine. The grips are walnut. All markings are sharp. Hard to find now! $375.00 Modern Guns 41
Here is another TRAPPER model H & R that is in better condition that the one previously offered. This one has nearly 99% original factory blue on it and it works fine. It is a double/single action revolver and works fine. All markings are nice and sharp. Nice little .22 caliber revolver that was made from 1934-1941. Nice!! 450.00 Modern Guns 40
Here's another H & R that is designated as the HUNTER model. The main difference in this piece from the others already offered is that the barrel on this piece is 10 inches long. It is a double/single action revolver and works fine. This piece exhibits about 60 to 65% of the original blue. The action works as it should and the markings are fine. The grips are really nice walnut. This piece was made from 1926 to 1930. This is a 7 shot revolver. $450.00 Modern Guns 39
Here's another H & R that follows the designation of the HUNTER model but the top of the barrel is marked TARGET and I believe it's made about the same time as the HUNTER model. It looks the same in every way except the walnut grips are just a little different. This one is also a 7 shot .22 rimfire. This one works fine in the double action mode but does not hold back in the single action mode. There is some original color here and there on this one , thinning but perhaps 20% or more. The markings on top of the cylinder strap are TARGET MODEL- MODEL 1900 FITCHBURG, MASS. A nice revolver and with a marking that I do not see often. $325.00 Modern Guns 38
Here's something you don't see everyday-or at least I don't! This is a Stevens No. 10 Target Pistol. This version was a departure from its predecessors. It very much resenbles a semi-automatic pistol but is, in reality, a single-shot pistol. It is chambered for the .22 rimfire cartridge and has an 8" round barrel that pivots upward for loading. It has a steel frame and is blued, with checkered rubber grips. Instead of the usual exposed hammer, this verison has a knurled cocking piece that extends through the rear of the frame. There were approximately 7,000 manufactured between 1919 and 1933. This pistol is in good condition and all steel parts exhibit a nice dark patina. The black rubber grips are in nice condition with no cracks or breaks that I can see. On the top of the barrel it is stamped PAT. APPL'D FOR. Nice bore.$350.00 Modern Guns 37
REAL NICE WINCHESTER MODEL 72-A !!!
Here is a dandy Winchester Model 72-a . This model is a bolt action rifle with tubular magazine and is chambered for the .22 short, long and long rifle. This model was not serial numbered and was built between 1938 and 1959 with about 161,000 rifles sold. This particular rifle is in about 75 to 85% or more condition which is hard to come by. The action works fine and the bore is also fine. All the markings are sharp. There is a ding here and there and some very minor scratches. Most of the original blue is remaining with just a spot into the finish here and there. The receiver is grooved for a scope. This is the sporting rifle with a 25 inch barrel. The stock is nice and dark one piece walnut with a small 1 to 1 1/4 crack running forward of the bolt. This is a dandy piece! $425.00 Modern guns 27
LITTLE ACE .22 SINGLE SHOT PISTOL!
When I first saw this little pistol I thought it was an antique from the 1800's but it's not. This little piece was made by R.L. SVENDSEN F.A. MFG CO. in Itasca, Illinois during the 1960's. This diminutive derringer consists of a brass frame and was originally blued but now showing age with black wooden birdshead type grips. It measures approximately 3-3/4 inches overall length, with a 2 inch round to octagonal barrel. It takes a .22 short and the barrel pivots sideways for loading. The action works fine. This is a modern firearm so it will have to be transfered like any other modern weapon. $195.00 Modern guns 23
BELGIUM BROWNING 12 GUAGE SHOTGUN SEMI-AUTO EARLY PRODUCTION AUTO-5
This series of recoil-operated, semi-sutomatic shotguns was designed by John M. Browning and was offered in 12 or 18 guage. This one is 12 guage. The barrel length of this shotgun is 26 inch with a variable choke. It has a unique, square-back auction that has become instantly recognizable. The finish is blued with a checkered, walnut stock. This series was manufactured in Belgium by FN between 1903 and 1939. The serial number on this model is 151160. This one is a Grade 1-plain barrel model. The shotgun is in generally good condition overall with a good but aged blued finish. All markings are sharp and teh action is tight. The bore is mainly bright. There is a crack in the buttstock by the receiver that you can see in the pics and another on the same side on the forearm. On the obverse side you can see where a chip is missing on the front of the forearm. A rubber pad was added to the buttstock some time in the distant past. Still a nice piece ane early! $450.00 Modern guns 22
Here is a real nice WW2 dated Colt M-1911 A1 in the green parkerized finish. We believe that it has been refinished AND we have gone through the piece to make sure everything matches. The wooden grips are earlier and the barrel pin is earlier too. The pistol looks fantastic but does have one little blip to the finish on the forward slide that you can see in the pic. Serial number is 751XXX which we believe dates it to 1941. All markings are crisp and sharp. It looks fantastic and functions as it should. For this one $2500.00 item ww 85 & Modern Guns 16

1885 SINGLE SHOT LOW WALL IN .22 MAGNUM!
Here we have a brand new in the box Uberti 1885 Single Shot Low Wall in .22 magnum! The production of the Single Shot started in September 1885 using the Browning patent and terminated towards the end of 1920. It became one of the best known guns and was regarded by many as being the best Single Shot ever to be made. Without doubt it is stronger than the Sharps better designed very accurate and reliable in every way. Few guns have been made in so many different calibers - high walls even served in the development of the 7.62 Nato round. The gun was produced during a period in which target shooting was a really popular sport they were used in International Competitions at 1 000 yards. Here are the stats for this fine rifle:
Length of Barrel: 30"

GOOD ESSEX GUN WORKS 12 GUAGE SINGLE BARREL SHOTGUN WITH NICKELED RECEIVER!
Here is a very good Essex Gun Works 12 guage single barrel shotgun with a nickeled receiver.

This weapon is in good condition and the walnut stock and forearm are in good condition with just a ding here and there. The receiver has a great deal of the original finish left. The gun is about 45 1/2 inches long overall with a 30 inch barrel. The bore needs a scrubbing but should clean up pretty good. The action works fine. Good strong springs. Plastic buttplate. $125.00 Modern guns 05
OLD WESTERN ARMS 16 GUAGE SINGLE BARREL SHOTGUN
Here we have an old Western Arms 16 guage single barrel shotgun. Mechanically fine with a nice dark patina overall. The walnut stock is in pretty good shape with the exception of some forearm wood loss up front , two holes in the wrist which I think was modified to fit a sling guide in there and a small crack on the wrist top side back of the tang but still solid. The bore needs a good scrubbing. This shotgun is about 44 inches long overall with a 28 inch barrel. These guns were made at the turn of the century so this one will have to be transfered by an FFL dealer or if you have a C & R license I can send it directly to you with proof of age. Check out the pics! $100.00 Modern Guns 04
NICE 30-06 WINCHESTER MODEL 670 30-06 RIFLE!
This is a real nice Winchester Model 670 which is essentially a model 70 in 30-06 caliber. I believe the MOdel 670 was introduced in 1966. This one is a honey!

Here we have a whopper of a handgun! This is a Smith and Wesson Model 57 .41 caliber revolver!! This one is the nickel finished model with the 4 inch barrel. This revolver is a 6 shot .41 caliber revolver and is massive in the hand!!! I have a rather large hand and it feels big in my hand. The firearm looks to have had very little use however there is some 'roughness' to the nickel finish on the cylinder where it rested in the wooden display box against the foam rubber lining. The foam finish is coming off the styrofoam insert and needs redone. A little of the foam is stuck to the grips but can be cleaned off ok with a little elbow grease. The orignal cleaning kit is included with the revolver along with the original paperwork. This revolver was originally purchased new in 1974. Some of the roughness on the finish could probably be buffed out but I'll leave that to the new owner. It's still a quality piece!!! Classic!!! $750.00 Modern Guns 28
Here's a very nice vintage Armalite AR-180 Howa Manufactured weapon! The AR-18 is a gas operated, selective fire assault rifle chambered for 5.56x45mm ammunition. The AR-18 was designed at ArmaLite in California by Arthur Miller, George Sullivan, and Charles Dorchester in 1963 as an improved alternative to the AR-15 design, which had just been selected by the U.S. military as the M16. While the AR-18 was never adopted as the standard service rifle of any nation, its production licence was sold to companies in Japan and England, and it is said to have influenced many later weapons such as the British SA80, the Singaporean SAR-80 and SR-88, the Austrian Steyr AUG, and the Heckler and Koch G36. It gained some notoriety through its use by the Provisional IRA, which allegedly christened it the "Widowmaker"
This is the Howa Manufactured weapon (Nagoya, Japan which also made the WW2 Japanese Arisaka rifles) which was made from 1972-73 making it the most desireable of the 3 manufacturers. This particular weapon is in very good condition and is missing nothing and needs nothing. This weapon will not be shipped to California. The rifle has the original sling and one 30 round magazine. It also has a folding stock. This is nice!!! $1,950.00 Modern Guns 31
Hre is a 1911 conversion kit to change your Government 1911 .45 to a .22 caliber firearm making it more affordable to shoot. It appears that this kit is complete and has seen very little use. There is glare in the pics but the actual metal surfaces are the dark factory bluing that is normal on these pieces. There is no FFL needed for the conversion kit. This is really nice and comes with one factory magazine. $450.00 Modern Guns 32
Here's an old Savage 20 guage single shot shotgun. This is the Savage Model 220 which was made between 1938 and 1965. I really believe this one to be early. There is no serial number on this piece. The makers marks are sharp on this piece and there is a stamped/engraved duck huntiing scene on the bottom of the receiver. The action works fine and it has a safety feature. The walnut stock is in good condition with just minor dings and scrapes but no cracks or breaks. Still a lot of blue on it. There is some minor pitting but not bad. Still a nice piece!! FFL or C&R needed on this one. $150.00 Modern Guns 35
Here we have an old Stevens Boy's Rifle. This one is part of the 'Favorites' series. This series of Rifles are chambered for the .22, .25 and .32 rimfire. It has a 22" part octagonal barrel and was blued with a case colored frame now a very dark patina. It has a takedown-type action with an interchanable barrel feature. It has no rear sight and never had one and just a simple bead front sight. There were approximately 1,000,000 manufactured between 1893 and 1939 of the various types. I believe this is a no. 20 version that is chambered for the .22 rimfire shot cartridges and has a smoothbore barrel hence no rear sight. This old girl needs some wood work, especially with the rear buttstock. The buttstock is loose from side to side due to an old lateral crack that someone tried to fill in with plastic wood. It's restorable!!! The buttstock still has the old rubber STEVENS FAVORITE buttplate present. I had an old Remington Rolling Block .22 when I was a kid but I would have loved to also had a Stevens Favorite!!! WAS $350.00 NOW $315.00 Modern Guns 41
Here is a Winchester 12 guage single shot Model 370 Shotgun. The Winchester model 370 replaced the model 37. There were approximately 221,000 made between 1968 and 1973. The 370 model was actually manufactured in Winchester's Canada plant in Ontario. This shotgun is in average condition and has had the choke altered at the end of the barrel. There is also some corrosion on the end of the barrel otherwise the gun is in good shape with the exception of where something was glued to the reverse side of the buttstock. I believe a little adhesive remover would take care of that. The bore is excellent and the gun functions very well. The barrel is tight to the action. You could refinish this one without harming the value. WAS $125.00 NOW $110.00 Modern Guns 42
Here we have a 20 guage single shot shotgun made in Spain being a Model 690. IT has a nickeled receiver and a blued 27 1/2 inch barrel The bore is nice and shiney. The wood is in good condition and will look very nice polished up. There are no sling swivels although the front swivel post is present. The ornate cap on the end of the pistol grip and buttplate are present and in excellent condition. There are engraved scenes on the receiver of a dog on one side and a deer on the other. The nickel has chips here and there due to age. The action seems to work OK. WAS 100.00 for this one NOW $90. Modern Guns 44
Here we have an old model 1890 .22 Caliber Winchester "Gallery Gun". The Model 1890 was the first slide-action rifle ever produced by Winchester. This one is chambered for the .22 short only. This gun is the Second Model (blued frame variation) and the serial number is 190XXX range. It has a 24 inch octagonal barrel. The markings are still real clear. The action works well and there is just a trace of rifling in the barrel. The rear sight has been replaced as well as the front sight with modern pieces. The front slide forarm is the original but the pin has been replaced and plastic wood has been placed around the pin. The buttstock has suffered more serious trauma with a large crack running back from the tang. This appears to have happened some time ago and thre has been some attempt at repairing it. There is quite a bit of plastic wood applied to the buttstock that you can see in the pics. Still worthy of restoration and quite desireable as a collectors piece. These Model 1890's were favorites at the Fairs and Carnivals to be used as Shooting Gallery Guns. The Model 1890 was produced form 1890 to 1932 with approximately 775,000 guns being sold. The consignor WAS asking $700.00 on this one NOW $630.00 Modern Guns 45
Here is a Ranger Model 30, which was a store brand made by Stevens as a Model 520. It was designed by John Browning, and has a slight humpback in the receiver. Mfg. 1905 to 1932. This is a 12 gauge shotgun with a 2-3/4 chamber and 30 inch barrel length. This shotgun is a Browning design, take down pump action. It’s very well built and it’s extremely heavy duty. All the parts are in good condition and appear to be all original. The metal parts are a dark brown patina. The barrel has some slight rust pitting toward the muzzle. The model markings are visible but light. They were light from the beginning when stamped. The bore looks like a mirror. The action is still smooth. There are no cracks but there is a scratch here and there from use on the buttstock. The butt plate is present with a couple of chips in it. Still looks like a good old gun!! WAS $225.00 NOW $200.00 Modern Guns 46
Here we have a vintage Remington Model 510 in pretty good condition. The Bore is shiney and the rifling is deep. The action works well and there are no cracks or breaks in the stock- just the ususal scratches and dings. From 1930 to 1970 Remington produced a variety of single shot rifles and this is one of them. The only detractor from this old piece is that the buttplate has been replaced with a clear piece of plastic but can be easily replaced if you can find an original one.

Here we have is a very hard to find Beretta Silver Pigeon 12 gauge pump shotgun with the original box! This shotgun sports the 30" non ribbed barrel with full choke, checkered walnut stocks and rubber sleeve over the Beretta buttplate. The bore is mint and action is smooth. The condition of this gun overall is very good with the usual dings and dents from use. The markings are clear and most of the original bluing is still present. Serial number 020XXX. This is still a pretty nice Italian Shotgun! WAS $350.00 NOW $315.00 Modern Guns 48
Here is one fantastic RARE item to find! This is the hard to find, short lived ROCKETEER - AUTOMATIC ROCKET PISTOL otherwise known as the MARK I MODEL 8 13 MM GYROJET Pistol! This one even comes with 23 of the original 24 projectiles!!! Here's some info on the Gyrojet series:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Gyrojet is a family of unique firearms developed in the 1960s named for the method of gyroscopically stabilizing its projectiles. Rather than inert bullets, Gyrojets fire small rockets called Microjets which have little recoil and do not require a heavy barrel to resist the pressure of the combustion gases. Velocity on leaving the tube was very low, but increased to around 1,250 feet per second (380 m/s) at 30 feet (9.1 m). The result is a very lightweight weapon with excellent ballistics.
Long out of production, today they are a coveted collector's item with prices for even the most common model ranging above $1,000. They are, however, rarely fired; ammunition, when available at all, can cost over $100 per round.
Gyrojet MkI Aside from a few Gyrojets tested by the United States Military, most Gyrojets were sold on the commercial market starting in the mid-1960s. These were Mark I Gyrojets, which launched a .51 caliber rocket, and ammunition was costly to produce and buy. In 1968, the U.S. Gun Control Act of 1968 created a new legal term, the destructive device. Under the new law, any weapon firing an explosive-filled projectile over a half-inch in diameter was considered a destructive device and required paying a tax and obtaining a license. The registration process was changed later,however, and now they can be transfered like any other handgun.
Other models produced were Gyrojet MkII which used a .49 caliber rocket, Gyrojet Assault Rifle,Gyrojet Carbine, Gyrojet Derringer and the Gyrojet Flare Launcher. Another variant was the Gyrojet Lancejet.An underwater firearm variant of the Gyrojet called the Lancejet was considered for use by the United States military, but the inaccuracy of the weapon eventually removed it from consideration. Other variants included the Gyrojet Light Machine Gun, Gyrojet Pepperbox pistol An experimental twelve barrel Gyrojet pepperbox type pistol was made that was used in the movie Murderers' Row and was planned to be used, but was not in You Only Live Twice, and the Gyrojet Conversion gun.
Make no mistake about it, this is an actual firearm!!!
This Gyrojet Rocket Gun is in like brand new condition! The previous owner fired it once in the 1960's and I believe it scared him as he didn't fire it again. His son found it in the attic and wanted to sell it. The weapon is in like new condition also because it's in the original box and so is the ammo, albeit that the boxes are worn and dirty.. Also included is the original owners manual and other period articles pertaining to this most unusual weapon! Now is your chance to own something that you've only heard about along with 23 original rocket propelled projectiles!!! This item must be legally transfered to the new owner. As far as I know it operates but with projectiles being worth from over $100 apiece you can understand if I don't fire it! For the entire lot the price is $3,000.00 + shipping. Where you gonna get another with all this ammo!!! Look at the pics!!! Modern Guns 49

Here we have a nice little 7 shot revolver. This one is marked U.S.Revolver Co. and was a less expensive version of Iver Johnson's Arms and Cycle Works Handguns. The Actual dates of the small frame 22 caliber U.S. Revolver Co. double action revolver was 1911 until 1933 according to research I've done. The main serial number is on the left side of the grip frame under the grips. On this firearm the serial number on the trigger guard is the same but missing the letter designation that is on the grip frame of D which means this revolver was made between 1921 and 1933. There is no loading gate on this revolver but when a cartridge is aligned properly under the hammer for firing the cartridges nearest the loading slot are off center enough so that they won't fall out. Iver Johnson and many other companies used this method for a very long time to keep costs down. This particular weapon has a ton of original blue on it and all markings are clear. The revolver works in both single and double action. The grips have the large U.S. in a circle at the top of them. The grips are black plastic and in very nice condition. The cylinder top strap is marked U.S.REVOLVER CO. MADE IN U.S.A. I wouldn't shoot this old revolver but it definitely fits a collector's needs. $120.00 Must transfer through an FFL. Modern Guns 53

Kalashnikov, a Soviet Engineer, designed the weapon in the late 40’s and it was adopted by the Soviet Army in 1949 as the officially designated “7.62mm Automat Kalashnikova, obraztsa 1947 goda” (7.62mm Kalashnikov automatic rifle, model of 1947). The weapon went into service in 1951. The AK-47 and AKM (AK Modified) fire a 7.62 x 39-mm (M1943) ammo which is a heavy caliber small arms round capable of defeating most body armor. The weapon is usually equipped with 30 round magazines and is available in a fixed wooden or folding stock (AKS). The AKM has a stamped receiver and entered into service in 1961. The AK-74 fires a 5.45 mm bullet and has replaced many of the 7.62 weapons. All models are gas operated with a rotating bolt feed system. The semiautomatic version has a “practical” rate of fire of 40 rounds per minute. The AK has an “effective” range of about 300 meters. (328 yards).

We will describe them starting from left to right on the top row and go down. 1. These are revolver grips that are custom made. They look like ivory but I believe they are plastic. 2. These are original Type 14 Japanese Nambu Grips. 3. These are for an original S&W semi auto pistol. 4. This is an original 1 piece grip for a Civil War Colt Army or Navy. Some damage repaired. Second Row 1. I believe these to be original Colt Sibley Grips. 2. These are WW2 Colt Grips for the 1911 A1 pistol. One grip has been used and one has not. 3.
