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 we have a German P-38 that was produced at he Mauser Werke, Oberndorf factory right after WW2 was over for French Security Forces. Following World War II Germany was divided into four occupation zones, one for each major Allied power: the United States, the Soviet Union, England, and France. The Mauser factory was located in the French zone. Almost immediately after the war ended the French directed Mauser to resume P.38 (and other weapon) production which ended in 1946 after increasing protests from the other Allies (mainly the Soviets). The French Mauser P.38s were primarily assembled from spare parts already on hand, or those which required little further processing. There is no fundamental difference between the wartime and post-war Mausers with the exception of the grip panels, being stamped steel, which seem to be uniquely French.
Among the French Mausers one will find a variety of slide codes, although the svw code is by far the most common as it was the Mauser factory code at the end of the war. P.38 researcher and collector Orvel Reichert reports 83% of reported pistols have the svw code, 7% the byf44 code, 5% the FN ac43 code, 4% the FN ac44 code, and the very small remainder have a wide variety of WW2 codes, blank slides, and post-war slides. The finishes of the French Mausers range from various colors of parkerization, blued, or rarely the late-war German phosphate. Almost all are import marked by Interarms, usually under the slide rail where it is not easily seen. Individual parts that would have been acceptance marked by the Germans during the war (frames, slides, barrels, and locking blocks) may or may not bear German markings, depending upon where they were in the assembly process. There does not seem to have been any systematic attempt to deface or remove any existing German markings already present. The French continued with the German serial number system, starting with the "g" block (presumably 1g would have been the first French Mauser). The g, h, and i blocks were produced in 1945, transitioning to the k and L blocks in 1946. The letter "j" was not used. The last known serial number of a French Mauser is 500L. There are a few interesting markings found on French Mausers, such as the the "circled flaming grenade" (a police marking) and the "clover leaf stamp," of which the meaning is not currently known. The French proof mark, a star, is usually present.
This particular weapon is serial numbered 4638G on the slide, the frame and under the barrel up front. After the P.38 stamping on the frame is the code SVW and 45 which I believe means the German Mauser Factory and the year 1945. The Star stamping is on the other side of the frame. When you pull back the slide it looks the nazi eagle wing and some letters and numbers. The import markings are on the bottom of the slide, which are not easily seen. The weapon is in excellent condition for it's age and functions perfectly. Comes complete with the original paperwork and the original box. This is a real nice piece of immediate post war history made with WW2 German parts. For this piece $550.00 Modern Guns 68
Here we have a Smith and Wesson Model 48 (K-22 MFR Masterpiece) in .22 wmr caliber with a 6 inch barrel. It's in the blue and if there were not slight turning marks on the cylinder and a tiny ding on the frame behind the cylinder it would look brand new. Here's the stats on this particular pistol:

Here we have a wonderful older .22 rifle! This is stamped JC Higgins, Sears and Roebuck Model 31. It is a semi automatic 22 that shoots shorts, long, and long rifle. The bluing is in excellent shape and has a good bore. It's tube fed with iron sights and a grooved receiver. The wood also looks very good with little wear and just a very, very few minor dings. Comes with the original retractable red sling. Has a label on it for SEARS ROEBUCK & CO. Chicago and appears to have the date of 1960 on it if I am not mistaken. You can see where another label was on the stock but now lacking. This piece operates as it should and has a nice bore. It's in remarkable shape for as old as it is. There are just a few minor scratches on the top of the parkerized receiver where scope mounts would go. This would be a nice addition to your collection of 22 rifles! Nice!!! $165.00 Modern Guns 66
Here's a real nice Marlin Model 60 ! An economically priced rifle that´s earned the title of "most popular 22 in the world." Since it was introduced in 1960, it has continuously represented one of America´s finest rimfire values. It has a 19" Micro-Groove® rifled barrel, cross-bolt safety, manual bolt hold-open and a patented automatic "last-shot" bolt hold-open. The tubular magazine holds up to 14 Long Rifle rounds. And with features such as its sleek walnut-finished hardwood stock and a precision-crowned muzzle for enhanced accuracy, it´s easy to see why the Model 60 continues to be one of America´s best-selling rifles. This is an older model but still in great condtion! There are some minor chips from use on the receiver but it still looks great! Functions very well and has a great bore. The stock may have been refinished at some point in time but it looks good. Nice! $125.00

Here we have a beautiful 1920 Commercial German Artillery Luger in 9mm. The 1920 commercials were marked GERMANY and MADE IN GERMANY for those being exported but the ones that were sold in country did not have those markings. Erfurt- manufactured pistols as well as DWM-manufactured pistols were reworked from WW1 pistols to the commercial pistols being sold to the public and abroad. Some of these pistols are military reworks, with markings and proofmarks removed; others were newly manufactured. This particular pistol is a DWM manufactured pistol as marked on the top of the piece. The only other markings on this piece is the number 98 shown in the pics. This 98 is marked in at least 3 different locations that I have seen. This piece also has the 8 inch barrel that is expected on an artillery piece. The rear sight is not the same as the military artillery pistols but many variations of the commercial German Luger were made. One could do a book just on the variations of the Luger! This piece has obviously been redone and is in excellent condition. The grips are original and very nicely checkered. The bore is excellent and this piece is chambered for the 9MM Luger shell. There is some minor pitting on the center toggle link but otherwise fine. The magazine seems to be a shade later with german markings on it as well as '37' which I take to mean 1937. This is a nice piece and worthy of any collection . The price is $2,750.00 Modern Guns 64
Below we have a nice collectiion of Iver Johnson Revolvers, all from one collection. They are all in very good condition and some better than that. It's hard to show just how much bluing is on these pieces as I get a lot of reflection which causes glare wherever I try to take pics. I guarantee that they are better than the pics. You will be delighted with these fine revolvers!
Here we have an Iver Johnson Model- 50, 6 shot revolver in .22 magnum! The book says they were 8 shot but this one is 6 shot! Sometimes called the 'sidewinder' this piece has a 6 inch barrel with good bore and fixed sights. Wooden hardwood grips are in good condition. The frame still shows case hardening and the blue is very nice. There is a tiny bit of wear where the piece slid in and out of a holster. The action works perfect. It's in about 98% condition I would say. Nice! These pistols were manufactured from 1961 to 1978. $275.00 Modern Guns 63
Here we have an Iver Johnson Model 55 in .22 magnum being a 8 shot evolver. I believe this to be the Model 55S-A Cadet with 8 shot cylinder. The only difference between a Cadet model 55 S and a model 55 SA is that the 55 SA has a loading gate on right side of frame. This one has the loading gate. It also has a 2 ˝ inch barrel with two piece grips. The cylinder is also not fluted like later models (after 1958). This is a nice piece with great bore and great finish. There is just light wear on this piece and in a couple of spots the bluing is getting kind of brown. Otherwise very nice!!! For this one $250 Modern Guns 62
Here we have an Iver Johnson 'BULLDOG' in .22 magnum! This revolver is matte black finish with a blued cylinder. This piece looks new! There is but a tiny little wear on the end of the barrel and on the rear sight. 8 shot. Large solid frame with adjustible rear sight. Double and single action revolver. Plastic grips with owl head. Introduced in 1974 and discontinued in 1978. Excellent bore and action! $275.00 Modern Guns 61
Here we have an Iver Johnson Trailsman 66 with the original matching box! This is a .22 LR caliber double action revolver with 6 inch barrel and adjustable sights with an 8 shot cylinder. This revolver is blued with plastic grips. The bluing is very nice with some spots turning brown. There is minor wear on the muzzle end from going in and out of a holster. Manufactured between 1858 and 1975. This piece is in excellent plus condition with just minor scratches on the cylinder. The revolver functions beautifully and seems to be very lightly used! The box is all original with cutout for the revolver to fit into and the original instruction sheet. The serial number on the box matches the serial number on the revolver. Nice! $325.00
Modern Guns 60
Here's another 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 we have another quality Iver Johnson Revolver. This is a VIKING 67 model in .22 caliber. It's another top break revolver and in pretty good condition overall. This piece is very similar to the Trailsman 66. It's a 6 inch barrel with an 8 round cylinder. The barrel and frame show almost all of the original bluing and is worn only at the muzzle end where it went in and out of a holster. The cylinder has most of the bluing still on it but there are many surfaces scratches, finish deep, on it. The rear sight is adjustable. Plastic grips. The action works perfect and the rifling is also excellent. This is still a very nice revolver!! $260.00 Modern Guns 58
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
The Winchester Model 94 is SOLD! Here we have an all original Winchester Model 94 in .30-30 Winchester. This is a pre 1964 firearm as the serial number dates it to 1951. The firearm has the original finish just showing wear from normal handling over the years and there is a couple of very light scratches on the receiver. The forearm and buttstock have a very nice metal to wood fit and has never been altered in any way. The bore is perfect on this round barrel model being nice and shiney with no rust or dark spots. All the markings, ie: lettering and proof marks are nice and clear. This rifle has the correct sights including the hood which is sometimes missing on these models. Overall, this is a great nice used rifle in all original untouched condition. I wouldn't mind keeping this one for myself!!! $525.00 Item jmn 01 Modern Guns 55
Here is a very nice Thompson Center single shot pistol made by Thompson Center Arms of Rochester, N.H. in .22 WMR!! The firearm is in excellent condition and has not been fired much at all. The only wear on this fine pistol is on the receiver on each side where the barrel was pivoted up for loading. A little of the bluing is worn there. There is a Cougar pearch on a rock on each side of the reciever. The barrel is shiney gloss black and is for the 22 WMR. The rifling is fine. This firearm has an adjustable rear sight on the 10 inch barrel. The wood is walnut and in very nice condition showing no wear whatsoever.

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
The Charter Arms Pathfinder below is SOLD! Here we have an excellent Charter Arms Pathfinder in .22 magnum! Charter’s Target Pathfinder is a great introductory revolver for the novice shooter. It has the look, feel and weight of a higher-caliber revolver, allowing you to gain proficiency while using relatively inexpensive .22 ammo. Part of the fun of shooting is doing it well, and proficiency requires practice. That’s why Charter makes target configurations, with 4” barrels and precision sights. Manufacturer Number 72324
Action Double / Single Action
Barrel Length 2"
Caliber 22 Mag
Finish Stainless Steel

This one was purchased for a lady but it was too big for her hand. 20 rounds were fired through it but that's all. There is a rotation line on the cylinder otherwise mint. This is a very nice piece! Comes with a hard case, trigger lock and all the paperwork. Nice!!! $325.00 Jmn 3 Modern Guns 52

The Ruger Single Six is a single action rimfire revolver produced by Sturm, Ruger. The Single Six was first released in June 1953. This one has a 6 1/2 inche barrel and holds 6 rounds. There is a very, very light rotation line on the cylinder otherwise looks unused! There are a couple of very tiny dings on the bottom of the grips but hardly worth mentioning. You have to go some to get this kind of quality in a revolver this old! Very, very nice!!! For this one $515.00 item jmn 4 Modern Guns 51
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 Stevens Shotgun below is SOLD! Here we have a Stevens Model 77B 16 guage Pump shotgun. This gun rates at approximately 85% condition. The bluing looks great with minor edge wear. The buttstock is excellent with a little staining to the stock where the hand would have rested. There are also a couple of minor pitting spots consistant with oil from the fingers. The action works well. The chamber is 2 3/4". The bore of the 28" barrel is very good. The barrel has two ** on it indicating that this shotgun has an improved modified choke. This will make a great hunting gun for those who love to use a 16 gauge shotgun. It's still a good one! $175.00 Modern Guns 48
Here's an outstanding Hi-Standard Sentinel Deluxe in .22 caliber long rifle, long and short cartridges. This is a nice shot double and single action revolver in excellent condition. The only sign of wear is some minor turning on the cylinder.
Here we have a quick draw outfit! The revolver is a .22 caliber HAWES Revolver made by J.P.Sauer & Sohn of Germany. This is the Western Sixshooter 6 shot .22 caliber revolver. The barrel length is 5 ˝ inches. The front sight has been turned around so that it would not hang up in the holster when drawn quickly. The firearm is nickel but the cylinder is blued. The original owner says he got it that way. The action is tight and it works very well. This is a single action Western style revolver. The grips looks fine but they don't fit extremely well so I guess they could be replacements. The gun rig is a nice black leather rig and would fit a 38 inch waist. The revolver fits the holster very well and is easy to draw from however the cartridge belt is for a .30 carbine round for pistols. Black Hills leather makes this holster which is listed as BH73 The Hunter. This is a Buscadero style rig with a drop belt design. The holster is looped through the low fitting drop belt and secure with a strap and sells on the Black Hills Leather of Laredo, Texas website for $289.99 by itself. You can have the entire rig including revolver and belt rig for $325.00 The revolver was used considerably but is still in good condition whereas the belt rig was used very little and is in excellent condition. Modern Guns 47
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
Here we have a Colt Frontier Scout in .22 magnum. The Colt Frontier Scout single action revolver made its first appearance in 1957, during a time when American shooters were in love with the old west and with guns that reminded them of it. This model was discontinued in 1971.
This was Colt's offering to compete with Ruger's Single Six, which had found a ready market when introduced in 1953. Ruger's then-reasonable pricing allowed the Single Six to sell well; it was a cheap-to-shoot old-west-type gun for those who revered the Colt Single Action, which Colt was no longer producing.
Then along came the Scout, an alloy-framed single action 22 caliber revolver from the folks who built the first successful six-shooters, whose four-click actions were said to spell C-O-L-T when cocked.
This particular weapon is in excellent condition with about 98% blue left. There is some muzzle wear from going in and out of a holster. This revolver sports the hard 'rubber' type grips popular on the Colt Single action revolvers. There is just slight wear to the cylinder from turning and three real small dings on the reverse top strap. The action works crisp and the rifling is fine. The markings are all sharp. The only drawback to this piece is that someone put his social security number on the butt piece. It's not scratched in too deeply so pehaps it could be buffed off and the buttpiece could be refinished This is one fine little revolver! $450.00 Modern Guns 44
The S&W is SOLD! Here is a used but not abused Smith & Wesson Model 36 otherwise known as the Chief's Model in .38 S.& W. special. This gun looks very good with 75% blue and some wear here and there from use. There are flecks on the firearm that should clean up. There are some dullness on the cylinder from coming into contact with the holster, remainder looks about good. Locks up tight, and functions very well. The revolver as a 17/8" pinned barrel with an excellent bore, and the factory walnut grips look very good.Action is smooth. This revolver comes with a nice leather holster. $395.00 Modern Guns 43
The Browning Hi-Power below is SOLD! Here we have a BROWNING - MODEL HI-POWER - .9MM PARA./LUGER CAL. - SEMI-AUTO PISTOL - Made in BELGIUM and assembled in PORTUGAL. This piece is in excellent condition just showing wear on the bottom of the magazine and on the backstrap. The action works flawlessly and is very smooth. The bore is excellent. This is a very clean gun - BROWNING ARMS COMPANY MORGAN UTAH & MONTREAL P.Q. on reverse side of slide with MADE IN BELGIUM ASSEMBLED IN PORTUGAL on the obverse side. - 4 5/8 inch barrel with excellent bore (the pic shows dust from my cleaning patch in it)- 13 shot magazine - Fixed rear sight - raised front blade sight - walnut checkered grips - looks to be all original parts. I just found another 13 shot magazine in my stock that is better than the one show with the gun so I'll include it as well. This is a nice piece! $795.00 Modern Guns 42

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.

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
Here we have a High Standard Sentinel Mark IV single- double action revolver in .22 magnum. This one has the steel frame and adjustable rear sight. This one has the 4 inch barrel and is a nine shot revolver. The revolver has nice square butt grips. This one has seen use but not too much. According to the Blue Book this piece with 4 inch barrel and adjustable sight was made from 1974-1977. Take a look at the pics. It's a good one!! $525.00 Modern Guns 36
This is a Santa Fe Mauser field Model 12012 in 30-06 Caliber 22 inch barrel with a great bore. The Stock is real nice with only a couple of handling marks. The blue is also real nice with only a rub on top of the barrel from the scope. The barrel is marked Golden State Arms Corp. Pasadena Calif. The action is a Military Mauser 98. There are sling swivels present and also there is a Pachmayr swivel scope mount attached that is worth $100 alone. This rifle is in good shape. Also marked on the barrel are the Mauser markings of DEUTSCHE WAFFEN-UND MUNITIONS FABRIKEN-BERLIN which is a WW2 factory. The quality is outstanding on this piece! $475.00 Modern Guns 35

This piece has fiber optic green double sights in back and a single fiber optic red sight up front. This is a break open model. The 26 inch barrel is drilled for scope mounts. The entire piece is 42 inches long. I can't say anything bad about this piece because it's mint in the box! If I was a hunter I'd keep this one. Check out the pics!!! Nice!!! $195.00

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 rifle is very nice indeed with only a minor ding here and there and full factory blue on the barrel, receiver, trigger guard and trigger. This stock is the same type of checkered walnut stock found on the 310. The action is fine and so is the bore. Nice!!! $425.00 Modern guns 24
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.

The Winchester below is SOLD! RARE! HARD TO FIND WINCHESTER LEVER ACTION MODEL 65 IN 25-20 WCF CALIBER!!
Winchester made only about 5,700 Model 65s between 1933 and 1947 (with a lesser percentage of these chambered for 25-20 WCF). Standard barrel and tang markings with the Winchester factory proof on top of the receiver and barrel at the breech. Equipped with a hooded ramp front sight and elevation adjustable rear sight. Mounted on a smooth forearm and pistol grips stock with metal end cap and checkered steel buttplate. This rifle is in excellent condition. The rifle retains 95% plus original blue finish showing some edge wear on the buttplate and on the high edges of the receiver. I don't know if the receiver was reblued at some point and the only reason I say anything at all is that the rifle's finish is in such great shape!! If it was they did an excellent job and there are no light markings due to buffing. All stampings are sharp, clear and deep. The wood is also excellent with a some scattered minor handling marks . Mechanically excellent with an original issued Lyman 56 rear sight on it's 22 inch barrel. Serial number 10040XX W. The bore is also excellent. It'd be hard to find a better one!!! $2995.00

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

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.

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 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.

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.

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
SOLD! Here's a real nice Model 94 Winchester lever action carbine in .30-.30 caliber. This piece is real clean with some loss or fading of color to the receiver but otherwise real nice. According to the Winchester Pocket Guide this non-saddle ring carbine is dated to 1975. Carbines made after 1925 did not have the saddle ring. The piece operates flawlessly and looks great with good wood. There is nice rifling in the 20 inch barrel as well. This carbine has to be transfered by an FFL holder. was $650.00 now $550 !! Modern Guns 38
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
The below Shotgun is SOLD! Here we have a rare NITRO HUNTER 12 guage single shot shotgun with nickeled receiver. Nitro Hunter is a Trade name manufactured by Crescent Firearms, Norwich, CT, and retailed by Belknap Hardware Company of Louisville, Kentucky. "Nitro" implies that it was intended for smokeless powder. Research shows that it was probably made from 1907 to 1930 or so. This piece seems to be in good very well used condition. The wood pretty sound with a crack and a chip here and there but not overwhelming. There is a small door missing on the receiver which would have been there to cover us a screw head. There are patent dates on the obverse receiver of '96 and '02 (1896 & 1902) and on the reverse receiver is the words NITRO HUNTER. The bore is good and shiney and barrel is a nice dark patina. The end of the barrel has been reduced in size affecting the choke so it throws a tighter group. The front bead sight is missing as well. You need to have this one checked out by a competent gunsmith before firing. This one has a low 2 digit serial number. Check out the pics! Scarce! WAS $125.00 NOW $110.00 Modern Guns 43
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. WAS $200.00 NOW $180.00 Modern Guns 47
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
The RUGER P89DC IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE! Here we have a very nice P89DC 9MM pistol in an original Ruger Plastic hard case. This gun is in excellent slightly used condition and , hey! it's a work horse!!! I carry one just like this for self protection myself. This ruger P89DC comes with 2 - 10 round magazines and 1 - 15 round magazine. The Ruger P series are a line of centerfire semi-automatic pistols made by Sturm, Ruger & Company. The P series pistols were designed for military, police, civilian self defense and recreational use. The designs are largely based on the Browning action found in the M1911 pistol, but with minor variations, generally related to the safety mechanism and the barrel-camblock interface. Reviews have considered them rugged, reliable, and strong! This is the decock only model with no safety. This pistol looks and functions like a brand new one but at a reduced cost from the new one. These pistols sell for up to $500 with the 2 extra magazines but we have this one to move at $425.00 Look at the pics! Modern Guns 54

The AK has been licenced (and copied) in dozens of countries. Even after nearly 60 years, it is still the weapon of choice for soldiers, law enforcement, and the gun enthusiast. Mikhail T. 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

Here we have a unique collection of old gun grips. I don't know what all they fit so perhaps you can tell me. We also don't know what to ask for them so feel free to make an offer. 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. These 3 silver grips are all different and mexican for the 1911 Pistol? 3. Replacement Colt SAA grips. 4. Replacement Colt SAA grips with screw.
