Items marked "FFL" can only be sent to licensed dealers(need signed copy of FFL). For antique
guns, airguns, knives and ammo I need a copy of your D.L.(must be 21).
All used guns should be checked by a licensed gunsmith before shooting. No refunds on shipping
or guns with swapped parts.
If I don't have what you want, e-mail me and I may get you with someone who does(no charge).
I'm looking to buy percussion-to-cartridge conversions for my collection.

of grading is used on all items in this website, i.e. NIB-new, EX-excellent, VG-very good, G-good, F-fair,
ABT Air-O-Matic gallery gun: .1875(!)cal, VG, $300. DAO repeater powered by compressed air. This is the bolt
variant, with fixed sights. Patent dates 1942 and 1949. Bore mikes ~.200" and carrier is .190", so .175" BBs are too small,
but work OK. Uses 10-shot paper tubes filled with 3/16" ball bearings; I'll include 6 of them. Also, the hammer
spring is weak, so the gun shoots low. It is contained in a brass body that is pinned together and I couldn't get it apart.
Only defect is a small loss of wood on the toe of the buttstock. Refinished, no leaks. A very rare American air gun that few
people have heard of. LEARN MORE

CROSMAN 400 bulk-fill gallery rifles: .22, G, $150ea. I have 2, both professionally converted,
with reservoirs extended to muzzle. May have been done at the factory, because Crosman parts are used, and they take the 10oz
cylinder. No history available; must be rare. Both are complete, with mags, except the safeties are missing. One
is the earlier type, and the other the later. Both have seen hard use...Also have the quick-fill adapter & hose for another

cap. Tested, works perfectly... Another, VG, no box, $200. Early piercing knob cap. Not ready...These are true semi-autos,

replaced tube. The Holy Grail of BB guns, see below.

HAENEL SPORT MODELL 33 JUNIOR rifle: .174, G, $300. Type used by Hitler Jugend, but no special markings.
7/8 scale military bolt-action trainer resembling the Kar98. Supposed to use special 4.45mm lead balls, but I tested
with steel BBs, and it works fine. Power about the same as a Daisy. Rifled bore, 6-shot mag, original sling. Mauser-type
wing safety is missing... A nicer one, post war, for $400.
HAHN lever rifle, CO2: BB, G, $60. Works great, but needs refinish. See below.
HAHN 45 SAA pistol CO2: BB, G, $100. Works perfectly, and will hold gas several days. Someone spilled
glue on it, so the finish is a little rough. Neck is too short on current Crosman cylinders to pierce. I tested with
an older one. Will hit a soda can @ 25'... Hahn guns are rare now, because Crosman bought the tooling early on
and made their own versions.
HW 35 BARAKUDA: .22, G, $500. Battered stock, missing ether unit. One of only 20 made up for Beeman's in 1981.

and a silly shoulder stock. Uses canned freon for propellant. Cheap blow-mold construction. Appears to be unfired. Only
defect is small cracks around 2 screws. Pic on page 4. (sold)

slide), $10. Works OK.
MARS 115 rifle: 4.5mm, EX, $450. German repeating trainer styled like a K98. Original sling and cleaning rod.
Shoots BBs OK.
NEW YORK CRANK GALLERY RIFLES: .28, F, $200/2. Also called BUGLESPANNER, but that is the German version. Both

sights and is marked "Geo Smith-New York". Couple chips to buttstock...gun #2 is missing the forend, but has the sights and
some engraving. No markings, some rust.

S&W model 77A rifle: .22, VG, $100. Massive pump gun, with an interesting SS action, similar to Ruger
#1. Not ready.
WALTHER LP53 copy: .177, EX, $125. Made in Poland in 1970 by Predom-Lucznik of better materials(steel
& aluminum) than the originals were which used a lot of pot metal. Holster. Power and accuracy seem about
the same as my LP53.

REMOVING & INSTALLING AIR RIFLE SPRINGS: This can be very dangerous unless you use a bar or
pipe clamp as shown below. (correction- screw should be extended) Replacing with square-section springs can increase
power, but also increase vibration and affect accuracy.
LONG GUNS: "R&R"= Repaired
and Refinished. "Shooter Grade"= Lots of pitting, or other defects, but good rifling. May not be safe to shoot.
"Not Ready"= waiting on parts and/or restoration. "On Hold"= waiting on payment.
AFGHAN BLUNDERBUSS: 47mm, VG, $200. Very ornate, with lots of
MOP pieces(missing 5), but non-shootable due to the fake light weight barrel, engraved. Only the flint lock is old, but
it works. Crude construction. "Fusil Tromblon Afghan A Silex". Remind me to include some extra pearl pieces.
ARISAKA TYPE 38 rifle: 6.5mm, G, $160, FFL. Nagoya. This gun
has seen a lot of action: 1st in the Japanese invasion of China, then with the Chinese Nationalists, then with the commmunists.
Buttstock branded with unit mark, a kanji #, from the Kuomintang army. Blue is gone, and the wood battered from rough
storage(repaired). No visible pitting. Worn bore is shootable; the muzzles on some of these were counterbored. Incredilbly,
it still has the original dust cover, but no mum.
ARISAKA TYPE 38 carbines: 6.5, VG, $250, FFL. Nagoya, nice bore, broken cleaning rod,
R&R wood, no mum...Another, G, $150, FFL, no mum, incorrect rod, shootable bore, '00' marked, test fired.
ARISAKA TYPE 2 PARATROOPER rifle: 7.7, G, $1200, FFL. Matching #s except
for front band, perfect Mum, aircraft wings, original dust cover and rod. Buggered stock: sanded back half and Type 99 forend.
Some pitting on metal parts.
ARISAKA t-38 SPORTER: 6.5/257 Roberts, EX, $300, FFL. Relive the 1960's. Polished & jeweled action, Lyman reciever
sight, ramp front, Herkner 1" scope mount. Beautiful left hand walnut Herter's stock has white line spacers. It actually works
better for right hand shooting because the scope mount is so low. Also, having the cheek roll on the right side displays better.
Bore is worn but shootable. This gun could be easily converted again to 6.5x55 Swede, a better cartridge. It feeds and almost
closes on it.
AUSTRIAN m.1842 FRUWIRTH CARBINE: .71cal, G, $1000. These were very popular during the C.W. on both sides. Good 12-groove
bore takes Lyman 12ga slugs. Lockplate marked: (crown) 853 TOWER 1863. Converted to percusssion from tubelock using original
Bavarian 1858/67 PODEWILS-LINDNER rifle: .56, G, $2000. This is a percussion breech-loading conversion of a caplock
musket using an interrupted-thread bolt action. Supposed to be .54 cal, but that just drops thru. Groove dia. is
.575", but .58 minie balls won't fit chamber. Some .560" minie balls included(remind me). Test fired OK; seals pretty
good & nice bore. Replaced nipple. Use loose powder, or make Sharps-type paper cartridges. Missing wood
around sideplate screws on replaced stock. No markings other than proofs and #s, no rod. MORE INFO
m.1889 BELGIAN MAUSER rifle: 7.65mm,
VG, $1000, FFL. Made by Hopkins & Allen during WWI. Includes H&A bayonet(no scabbard). Most of these rifles were converted
in 1936, but mine is original, including the rod and sling, but bolt is mismatched. Good bore.
BELGIAN TRAPDOOR rifle project: .45-70,
F, $250. This appears to be a conversion of an 1863 Springfield, markings removed. 350K were sent to France
in 1870. Uses a Chassepot barrel, rear sight, and a smaller forend spliced in. Stock broken in half and missing a couple
chunks. Missing parts are: lower band, tang & side screw & washer, 2 lock springs & sear, all available. Bore
is good(.457") and the 1866 style action is tight. Stump your friends with this ultra-rare variation, the "1873 prototype".
BURNSIDE C.W. CARBINE, 4TH: .54, G, $900. Minor rust, pitting
and wood loss where buttstock joins reciever. Cracked trigger, good bore.(sold) Cases are $4 ea., turned from solid brass.
Children's CARCANO carbine: 6.5, G, $200. This is the blank only type made for the
"Figlia del Lupa" fascists youth. Marked GIL/1938/Verona. Action and other parts brass. Warped and cracked
zinc magazine will not feed. Closest case I can find to fit is the .30 M1 carbine. Folding bayonet. See gun in
CARCANO M.91 carbine: 8x57(!), VG, $160, FFL. Missing the folding
bayo assy; appears to have been made that way, the 18" barrel not turned down for it. This seems to be a rare
Cremona conversion, done under German supervision in 1944. New barrel and receiver are unmarked except for sn on barrel
and a '7.9' stamped on the fixed rear sight. No other markings except 'S' on bolt, and none appear to have been removed...
All the pundits insist that these are unsafe to fire, so I decided to shoot some hot surplus ammo in it, but couldn't
find any signs of stress(fired case included). I wonder if the "experts" know that the bores on these are oversize(.329"),
which would certainly lower chamber pressure. Only problem was that the bolt was hard to open, so maybe hand loads
would be best. Try using 125gr bullets. Trapdoor in butt plate for folding cleaning rod(missing).
CHASSEPOT M.1866 NEEDLE FIRE shooter: 11mm, VG, $495. Dated
1867. Yes, you can easily shoot these, but wear face protection. Refinished brite and converted to shoot a special
bullet(included), made by gluing a percussion cap backwards onto the base of a .45-70 bullet. Fill chamber
with loose FFG black powder, no cartridges needed. Modification consists of a longer needle and new rubber obturator. Gun
has the original rod. This was captured in the Franco-Prussian War, by the Germans who thoughtfully removed the French
markings.(sold) Bayonets are $25-$50 w/gun.
CLEMENT-NEUMANN: .401 Win, VG, , $900, FFL. Similar to Winchester
1910 blow-back semi-auto; less than 1000 made(in Belgium). See p.120 ALFA catalog. Replaced sights and mag, chip to wrist, repaired
bolt(not safe to fire). Clement also designed the .35 S&W auto pistol.
COLT LIGHTNING rifles: All are antique and have pitted
bores w/good rifling. 25" barrels.
1) .38-40, VG, $1200. Finish mostly gone, but very little wear
on wood or metal. Works well-- test fired, one-hole group @ 10m, nice bore. Round barrel & dust cover.
2) .38-40, VG, $1200. Refinished. Early type without dust
cover & round barrel. Test fired OK.
3) .44-40, VG, $1400. Octagon barrel, missing dust cover.
50% original finish. Test fired OK.
4) .44-40, G, $750. No finish, bad buttstock, not working. Bolt
won't retract fully, and firing pin is loose. Appears complete. Round barrel. Slide grip is good, has dust cover, but front
sight is wrong.
M.1882 Belgian COMBLAIN shooter: 11mm, G, $650. Forend, bands and barrel(dated 1872),
are from a Chassepot. Appears to be chambered in the original caliber, but the bore is larger, .457". 11mm Dutch
Beaumont ammo can work, but are tight at the head. Use .45-70 bullets. Old pitted reblue, stained stock. Martini
rear sight is soldered on backwards and dovetail front sight is Mauser. Gras bayonet included.
CZ 52(she)rifle: 7.62x45, EX, $425, FFL. Comes with ammo,
sling, sight hood, and blank adapter.
DANISH KRAG rifles: 8x58, G, $200-$300ea, FFL. 8x56R Mannlicher
ammo can be used in these.
DANISH ROLLING BLOCK rifle: 11mm, VG, $750. Original chamber;
.45-70s won't fit.
DREYSE M.1861 NEEDLE GUN: .60, G, $2500. Beck conversion, sanded stock.(sold)
DUTCH BEAUMONT-VITALI M.1871/88 rifles: 11mm, VG, $300. Original finish & rod,
nice bore...Another, G, cracked stock, w/1" missing chunk, no rod, good bore, $200. Both of mine are complete with ejectors,
which are frequently missing on these, as they just fall away when the bolts are removed. Both guns have mismatched bolts.
DUTCH M.1895 #3 ENGINEER OR ARTILLERY CARBINE: 6.5, VG, $425, FFL. This is the type
with the wood mag cover on left and the long handguard(cracked & chipped). Good bore, lots of blue. Mismatched bolt, original
finish, no import marks. For some reason the polish on the mag is rougher than on the other parts, but it is matched
EGYPTIAN HAKIM semi-auto rifle: 8x57, VG, $550, FFL. Comes with bayonet, scabbard,
sling, and extra 25-rnd mag. ~90% original finish. Shiney bore. I was able to hit an aersol can repeatedly at 200 yds with
ENFIELD m.1861 Artillery carbine copy: .58, G, $300. Made by Armi San Paolo(I think).
This gun has been "chronologically enhanced" and barrel markings thoughtfully removed. Fooled me. Bore is good,
5 grooves. Not ready.
EVANS 3RD CARBINE: .44, G, $1050. The 19th Century "assault rifle", 28 rnd capacity.
Replaced forend and band, missing swivels, pitting on barrel, good bore, works fine.
EVANS 3RD sporting rifle: .44, VG, $600. Missing gate, mainspring,
extractor, and rear sight. Good bore mikes .431". Magazine works OK.
FRENCH GRAS m.1874 rifle: 11mm, VG, $325. Refinished, mismatched #s, sanded
stock, original rod. Brite bore mikes .457", larger than normal: use .45-70 bullets and squeeze the necks down after
loading them. Use Lebel or .348 Win cases. Not ready.
FRENCH GRAS MUSQUETON: 11MM, VG, $550. Sanded stock, mismatch carbine bolt, brass
fittings, original rod, 2 extra 1/4" holes drilled in buttplate, nice bore.
FRENCH LEBEL rifles: 8mm, G-VG, $350-450, FFL. Tube feed, mismatch
#s, Minor pitting, bores are pitted but rifled, all the same. Spike bayonet for another $50.
GERMAN 1819 percussion conversion musket: .72, G, $500. Made in the kindom of Baden
at the St. Blasien arsenal(marked). Original rod shortened ~6" for plugged ramrod channel. Some losses to channel
and area behind lockplate, old finish. No rust in pitted 42" bore, mikes .725". Uses standard US musket nipple(replaced).
Breech plug easily unscrews for cleaning. Use 12ga components. Tip of sear broken off, but works OK. Dovetailed rear
sight. Unit marked on buttplate in Prussian style: 'III.1116.'
M.1888 German Commission Carbine: 8x57J, VG, $750. R&R stock,
mismatched bolt, 2 railway unit markings, spring ejector in dust cover.
GERMAN LEFAUCHEUX C.F. shotgun: 16ga, VG, $600, FFL. 29" Krupp Stahl barrels,
pitted bores, F&F choke, marked "NITRO", 2 3/4" chambers. Mostly German, with a couple Belgian proof marks.
"Paul Pipps, Buchsenmacher/Mulheim A.D. Ruhr" on top. Engraved & silver plated(tarnished, some rust). Refinished
stock w/small crack. Horn grip. Very tight lock-up. Rebounding hammers are a little loose.
This gun follows the original 1836 design very closely, but is centerfire
instead of pinfire, and should be safe to shoot with modern ammo. Comes with sling and a leg-o-mutton case(needs repair).
There is ~$1000 worth of engraving on this gun. The back-action
locks feature a hare on one side, and a pheasant on the other.
GERMAN SPORTER: 5.6X35/.22 Hornet, VG, $400, FFL. Crown U marks, pre-war. 'ZI-DI,
D.R.G.M.' Weighs only 6lbs. Stock has been repaired, sanded, and re-checkered. Cheek piece, detachable mag, modified express
sights. Bore looks new. The solid top reciever would be easy to mount a scope on.
GERMAN .22 LEVER SHOTGUN: .22, VG, $300, FFL. Weird garden gun made for the European
market sometime in the 1980's (RECK). Die cast reciever, steel 24" smoothbore barrel, and tubular mag holds 9 shotshells.
Adjustable rifle sights. Reciever grooved for scope mount, but it's top eject(?) Patterns ~6" @10m and will penetrate both
sides of a beverage can. Could probably break clay pigeons, but I haven't tried it. The crimped Winchester shotshells are
supposed to be stronger than the CCI types. Can also shoot BB caps singlely.
GERMAN TARGET RIFLE: .22lr, G, $125, FFL. Full-size single-shot
bolt action marked: "BERNH.PAATZ.WAFFENFABRIK ZELLA-MEHLIS/THUR." Continental sporting sights and swivels, repaired stock
with cheek piece and checkered pistol grip. Needs extractor. Shoots one-hole groups @ 10m.
GRANT PARLOR RIFLE: .17, G, $500. Not in Flayderman's, so must rare. Made in Newark
NJ starting in 1869. No maker's mark, just a patent date. Brass engraved frame with traces of nickel. 5" barrel
extension has fair rifling. Uses #11 percussion caps and 4.4 mm lead balls which are muzzle loaded(included). No powder needed.
This early firearm appears to have established .17 as a caliber, and has the power of a modern airgun. Comes
with a special rammer. Not ready.
GREEK MANNLICHER-SCHOENAUER 1903/14: 6.5MM, G, $200, FFL. Cheapest
M-S on the Internet. Replaced bands and incorrect handguard. Mismatch #s, no import marks. Sound stock, no cracks or dings,
pitted metal, gouged chamber, good bore. Made by Beretta(Breda 1927). Also have a pitted action, G, for $100.
HOPKINS & ALLEN JUNIOR 932 rifle: .32rf, VG, $150. Single shot takedown falling
block, w/octagon barrel. Missing extractor, and front sight is too short. Fair bore mikes .314".
HUNGARIAN 35M bolt rifle: 8x56, VG, $550, FFL. Correct and matching, but with tiny
specks all over one side; appears to have been sprayed by a tomcat.(sold)
HUSQVARNA rook rifle: .32/7.65, VG, $400, FFL. Beautiful gun, with graceful lines.
Checkered walnut stock w/tiny swivels, heavy octagon barrel, miniature 1871 Mauser action, excellent sights(replaced), fair
bore. Bolt appears mismatched, with a hand made extractor. This gun can shoot 3 calibers: .32-20, 7.5 Nagant and 7.5 Swiss
revolver. Groove dia. is .315". Test fired OK with .32-20s; groups ~1" @ 10m.

dings; perfect bore.
Japanese Type 18 MURATA rifle: 11mm, G, $700. (sold)
JAPANESE TYPE 30 rifle: 7.7, G, $450, FFL. "Hook Safety" ground
Mum. Incorrect rod, mismatch #s, good bore... Another, VG, $550, FFL. Mum lightly overstamped with small circles.
Original brass-tipped cleaning rod. No assembly #s. Bores on both are worn with good rifling.

w/cylindrical handle and rare straight-grooved safety knob. Nagoya...Another, G, $150. All matching #s. Stock has been varnished,

JAPANESE TRAINING RIFLES (hot collectibles of
the future): .30?, EX, $225, FFL. Resembles the rare Type 99 Long Rifle with 31" barrel. No firearm parts other than the replaced
bolt. Repro sling, receiver polished brite... Another, VG, $160, FFL. Matching #s! Cut for dust cover. Missing sight

time the rare 7/8 scale child's rifle, VG, $450, FFL. Can use 7.62x39 blanks... 2 other types I've seen are one
that can shoot Greenie Stick-Um caps, and a single-shot made from an 1888 Commission rifle. I also have training bayonets w/scabbards,
G, for $45. I know that these don't require an FFL, but try telling that to UPS, USPS, and FedEx.
JOSLYN RIFLE project: .56-50rf, F, $500. If you are good with wood, this is an opportunity
to own a very rare C.W. rifle for little outlay. Stock cut off at lower band. New walnut section included; fits barrel
perfectly. Use 1863 Springfield bands(3) and nosecap. Only 3007 of these were made at Springfied Armory in 1865, and half
of those were converted to .50-70 and sold to France. Later, those guns were converted again into 20ga shotguns. Rusted
bore mikes a tight .512" and has good rifling. Action is tight and it works OK. I've got $485 in it.
JOSLYN C.W. CARBINE, 1864: .54rf, G, $900. Breechblock converted to c.f., but firing
pin is r.f. Cracked wrist, good bore...Another, VG, $1500. This is the best condition CW gun I have ever owned. Only defects
are minor stock dings and repaired tang. Brilliant bore. US on buttplate, but no other marks or cartouches
KARABINER 98K: 8mm, G, $400, FFL. No import marks; looks like a G.I. bring-back. All
#s match except bolt, which matches itself. Nice bore. Reciever marked '42 / 1939'. Early laminated stock has been sanded.
KAR 98a: 8mm, EX, $450, FFL. Double-dated Erfurt, R&R stock and metal. Checkered
bolt handle, scrambled #s, replaced handguard, nice bore. Also have a long Erfurt bayonet, G, sans grips, for another
LEE-ENFIELD SMLE: .303, G, $160, FFL. Import marked, shot-out bore. Gun has the
cut-off and a nice patina. Peculiar thing about this piece is the bolt # matches reciever's, and the mag matches
to nose cap, but the 2 groups do not match each other. No other #s visible. Stock appears original. Dated 1916, no volley
sight. Sling & bayonet(remind me).
"LONG BRANCH TRAINING RIFLE": VG, $160. Canadian version of the Swift trainer, dated
1944. Uses a bolt and front sight from a Mk 4 Enfield. Heavy walnut stock, missing the buttplate safety mechanism. The target
puncher works fine, and I have extra needles, if you need some. This gun does not shoot anything. Not ready.
M16A2 TRAINING RIFLE: .223, VG, $225. Remarkably detailed solid black rubber 8lb replica, with original
Colt barrel(rifled!), flash hider, bayonet lug and working front sight. Complete Colt and gov't markings; looks better
than most I've seen. Current production is blue plastic. FSN: DVC-T7-83B on butt stock. SN 6510879(1986)... Another
earlier M16A1, sn 804005(1967). Rubber-covered cast iron reciever. Rare 3-prong flash hider. $225. Marked TASCO-FG on buttstock;
Colt markings on lower.
MAG-7 M1 TACTICAL SHOTGUN: 12ga, VG, $600, FFL. Weird slide-action, made in South Africa. This thing
should be in a movie. Originally these were made as pistols, but ~200 long gun versions were produced for the US, so
are super rare. Could be converted back to a pistol, but that would need permission from the ATF. Detachable mag in grip holds
5 shots. Supposed to take special 60mm shells, but the mag is only 56mm wide. Fortunately, the 50mm Aguila and NSI mini shells(included)
fit the mag perfectly, and cycle through the action. I haven't shot it, and it looks like it was fired only a few times.
Fake muzzle brake has accessory mount.
MANNLICHER-SCHOENAUER M.1905 carbine: 9x56, VG, $1300, FFL. Made by Steyr. Double triggers, 17.7" barrel,
trapdoor buttplate, never had a scope. Good bore mikes .356". Stock repaired in 2 places with thru bolts, lower swivel missing.
Checkered full-length stock. Beautiful gun.

cracked forend, stripped metal finish. Replaced Marble's sights.
1894 MARLIN rifle: .38-40, G, $500. Replaced stock and buttplate. Not ready.
1893 MARLIN rifles: .32-40, VG, $750, FFL. Dark bore mikes .314/.321". Lever screw buggered, small gouge
to forend, otherwise all correct. "Special Smokeless Steel" marked on 26" octagon barrel... Another, this time in .38-55 caliber,
VG, $1100, FFL. Shiny bore with some pitting. Marked "For Black Powder" on octagon barrel. Original sights on both guns,
both drilled for tang sights.
1893 MARLIN SRC: .30-30, VG, $750, FFL. Worn bore with good rifling mikes .310". Minor dings to stock. Tiny
swivels added. No blue left, but no extra screw holes either. Original sights. The forend looks correct, but the band partially
covers the barrel inscription. Original 20" barrel length.
1888 MARLIN rifle: .38-40, G, $750. Rare early top-eject type. Lots of old rust and pitting, but it works,
is complete with original sights, and sound stock. Good bore mikes .413"; use .41 cal bullets; see Home page.
MARLIN 1898 pump shotgun: 12ga, G, $225, FFL. A neat old gun suitable for SASS. Test fired OK with Winchester
Low Recoil shells, which is best to use in these; high wall brass won't extract. Wood is VG, but some pitting on metal; both
have been refinished. Button slide-release. When examining old Marlins, check the inside extractor: most are broken off,
including mine. This doesn't affect the extraction, as long as you use low-wall brass and deepen the hook in the
outside extractor, but will help in negotiating a price....Another earlier type with no button slide release, VG, no finish,
no pitting, same price...Also a Model 17, similar to above, G, $160. Missing buttplate and forend is cracked and
MARTINI-HENRY musket: 20ga(!), VG, $450. Looks like a standard rifle with 33" barrel, full length forend, and
the original rifle sights. 3" chamber. Dark blue arsenal refinish over pitted metal, new stock. Markings on receiver
are: (CROWN) V.R, ENFIELD, 1889, AC, and 2 Indian proof marks. Looks unsafe, but I test fired it 5 times with Federal Truball
slugs which can group 2" @ 50yards. Muzzle energy and velocity are the same as the original .450/.577 load. GO HERE
MARTINI-HENRY cavalry carbine: .450 shot, EX, $595. All correct, including the chamber, but the 530" bore
is smooth and highly polished. Could be a .577/.476 Indian Police Musket, but there are no Indian markings, only Brit. 'Enfield
1884' on receiver, and an 'S-X' over chamber(Strengthened Extractor)... Another, this time arsenal made from a cut-down rifle,
with original bore, G, $595. Marked 'Enfield 1879' on receiver, 'NMP'(Natal Mounted Police) on stock, and an Indian? mark
over chamber. Earlier importation.
MARTINI-ENFIELD carbine: .303, VG, $450. My best condition Martini, but not military. Made in England. Repaired
wood, some pitting in good bore.
MARTINI carbines, Indian? mfg: These fascinating guns were brought out of Afghanistan
by a State Dept. official recently; I have his name and number. $450 each, NRA Good condition, very little pitting, but no
finish. All have the Afgan crest depicted on the right side of the receiver, along with an inscription, and a date in
Arabic. All have tight actions, sound wood, cleaning rods and are polished brite. These were made to a higher standard than
the Khyber Pass types and the parts are interchangeable with the original Martinis, but they are not reworks and there are
no Brit marks at all:
The first one is a Martini-Henry artillery carbine in .577/.450 cal with swivels but no bayonet lug. Nice
bore has Henry rifling. Dated 1315 in Arabic, you do the math. Parts not numbered.(sold)
The 2nd one is a Martini-Metford cavalry carbine in .303 cal, fair bore, matching #s(10 visible), with another
inscription on the butt plate. (sold)
The 3rd one is a Martini-Enfield artillery carbine in .303, matching #s, good bore, and lug for '88 pattern
sword bayonet(included, but you'll have to shorten the forend. Remind me).
Last 2 guns test fired OK; spent cases provided.
MAUSER SPORTER: 9.3X62, VG, $550, FFL. Guns in this chambering tend to be very pricey, and the powerful
caliber has enjoyed a resurgence. It is one of the "dangerous game" calibers used in Africa. This is a pre-war
ex-military sporter 'Made in Germany' (stamped in wood ahead of magazine). Reciever ring is marked "IDEALSTUDSAREN/ F.S.(head
of a raindeer) Z.M./ ALGEN". Milled iron sights, trigger safety, spoon bolt handle, swivels. L side of receiver

POTSDAM MUSKET (Prussian M.1809) percussion conversion: .75/10ga, G, $450. Huge gun with lots of brass(original
patina), the perfect wall hanger, and not a lot of money. Dated 1833, and brass buttplate is well marked. Dark beechwood
stock, with tiny worm holes. Minor wood loss and cracks to forend and around nipple bolster, and barrel eroded there
too. Unrifled bore is dark but smooth, no dents. Replaced swivels and rear sight. Original ramrod, bayonet hook. These were
imported during our Civil War...Also have the bayonet for another $50 w/gun, but it is too tight. I can ream it out if you

Brite bore mikes .430". Simple engraving on both sides of reciever, over '2 CELANESE' on L side. Celanese is a large corporation
operating in several countries, so this carbine could have been used by security guards.

works perfectly. Replaced rear sight, loading gate, and tang screw. Made in 1903.

on another carbine, but must be rare. Good bore, original wood finish. (sold)
