Modern Guns 133
In 1924, Winchester introduced the Model 55 lever-action rifle as a simplified version of the 1894 Winchester. The Model 55 was available in 30 WCF (30-30), 32 WS and 25-35 calibers. This rifle could be ordered only with a round 24 inch barrel, the forearm smooth, a plain walnut straight-grip stock, and shotgun butt. The frame and barrel were blued and had either a solid or takedown feature. The Model 55 was manufactured through 1932 with approximately 21,000 guns produced during the 8-year production period. The Model 55 was discontinued because it could just not compete in sales with the 1894 Winchester.
This particular rifle is in 32 WS and has the other features mentioned above but this one is a solid frame. The barrel, hammer and nose cap has most of the original blue while the other parts ie: receiver, butt plate and lever have turned a dark gray with some spotting of bluing remaining. The action works great and the rifling is excellent. The wood is very nice with the usual dings from use but no cracks or breaks. You can see on the bottom of the stock pieces where sling swivels were installed then removed and filled. The rear dovetailed sight is missing. Serial number 10748XX. Take a look at the pics. I think you’ll like what you see. For this nice firearm $1,365.

Here we have a beautiful little Winchester Model 94 Saddle Ring Carbine in .30-30 or what was known then as .30 WCF. This firearm has a lot of original bluing on the barrel and full extended magazine tube. The receiver had thinned to silver and has been polished some since then. The markings are sharp and clear and it’s a beautiful little piece. The rifling is very nice still as well. The action works flawlessly. The wood is very nice as well with just the usual dings from used. Heck, this Winchester was made in 1925 so it should have a few dings. Nothing serious however. Take a look at the pics. They tell you more than I can. Nice! $1,150.00
Item Modern Guns 130
Here we have a very nice Winchester Model 94 (1894) Saddle Ring Carbine in 25-35 WCF cartridge! The serial number of 9235XX places this firearm being made in 1922. The piece is in good condition with a pinned blade front sight, a carbine style rear sight and the saddle ring on the left receiver with a full length magazine tube. Most of the original bluing is present on the barrel and magazine tube. All of the stampings are located on the left barrel area just ahead of the receiver as evidenced in the pics. All the markings are sharp and clear. The receiver is mostly silver with some blue and some minor browning to small areas. The Winchester proof marks are on top of the barrel and receiver as they should be and are nice and clear. The bore seems to have some pitting near the breech but stops a little ways up the bore and has nice sharp lands and grooves. This bore is still very serviceable. I’m afraid I get too much glare to get a good pic of the bore. The walnut stocks are in good condition as well just having the usual dings from use. No cracks or breaks are present. A really nice Saddle Ring Carbine in a hard to find caliber! $1,850.00

Winchester Model 92 in 25-20 WCF.
The Winchester Model 1892 was a lever-action repeating rifle designed by John Browning as a smaller, lighter version of his large-frame Model 1886, and which replaced the Model 1873 as the company's lever-action for pistol-caliber rounds such as the .44-40 round. When asked by Winchester to design an improved pistol caliber lever action, John Browning said he would have the prototype completed in under a month or it would be free. Within 2 weeks, Browning had a functioning prototype of the 92 Calibers for the rifle vary and some are custom-chambered. The original rounds were the .32-20, .38-40, and .44-40 Winchester centerfire rounds, followed in 1895 by the new .25-20. A few Model 92's chambered for .218 Bee were produced in 1936-38. The Winchester Models 53 (1924) and 65 (1933) were relabeled Model 1892's. Admiral Robert E. Peary carried an 1892 on his trips to the North Pole., and Secretary of War Patrick Hurley was presented with the one millionth rifle on December 13, 1932. 1,007,608 Model 1892 rifles were made by Winchester.
Although the Model 1892 made its debut after the closing of the American frontier, and the true "Guns that Won the West" were the earlier Models 1866 and 1873, nonetheless the '92 became an indelible icon of Western mythology through its use in hundreds of motion pictures and television shows, standing in for its older siblings. John Wayne famously carried Model 92s in dozens of films and owned several personally, some with the distinctive oversized "loop" lever. Other notable screen 92s were those of Chuck Connors in The Rifleman TV series, and Steve McQueen's "Mare's Leg" in Wanted: Dead or Alive.
Hollywood studios purchased the '92 in quantity because it was in regular production (until World War II) but looked sufficiently like Old West Winchesters to substitute for valuable antiques, and because in calibers .44-40 and .38-40 it could fire, together with the Colt Single Action Army "Peacemaker" revolver, the standard Five-in-One blank cartridge. This latter practice mirrored the real cowboys, who found it convenient to carry a rifle and a revolver chambered with the same ammunition.
This particular rifle is in very nice condition being manufactured in 1923. Most of the original bluing is present on the barrel and tube magazine while the receiver, tang, buttplate and nose cap have turned to a nice pleasant plum color. The wood is in very good condition with only a couple of chips out of it at the nose cap that you can see in the pics. This rifle has a 24 inch barrel with sharp rifling present. All of the markings are excellent being deep and clear. This is a real nice piece in the scarce 25-20 caliber ! $1,295.00 + shipping.. Modern Guns 99
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 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
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'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 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 $1,650.00 item ww 85 & Modern Guns 16
REPLACEMENT SKS STOCK

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"
Overall Length: 45.40"
Weight: 6.56 lbs
Barrel: Forged steel
Frame: Forged steel and color case
Barrel Shape: OCTAGONAL TAPERED

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. The last date on the receiver as far as a patent is May 14, 1901 so it will have to go to an FFL for transfer or if you have a C & R license I can send it directly to you. 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!

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 is a folding stock. This is nice!!! $1,950.00 Modern Guns 31
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 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

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). This is due to its bulky bullet traveling at only 2,300 feet per second. Average weight: 9.5 Pounds. Overall length is 34.2 inches. Folded length: 27.5 Inches. Only $7 !! Modern Guns 57

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. I believe these are for the Iver Johnson or some other like pistol. Bakelite? Eagle. 4. Original grips for a Colt Semi auto pistol. Third Row 1. Custom grips for some semi auto pistol. 2.
