OLD REVOLVERS(mostly). Items marked "FFL" require license, otherwise 21+.  "Shooter grade": works OK and has a good bore, but the gun has been altered or has a bad finish. May not be safe to shoot, which applies to all my guns. "Zhuk"= "The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Handguns", by A.B.Zhuk... "bore mikes"= groove to groove measurement... HOLSTERS NOT ORIGINAL unless stated otherwise.

ALLEN & WHEELOCK side hammer, 4th model: .22, G, $300. Cute little Civil War era gun that you can shoot with short CB caps. Right grip missing a couple chunks, good bore and lock-up. Test fired OK. Never use .22 Shorts in 19thC .22 revolvers; they fit just fine, but will blow the cylinder.

AMERICAN BULLDOG revolver: .44, VG, $250. Nickel plated, made by I.J.. I can convert to .44 Russian, but you have to use 200 gr flat-nose bullets. Factory ammo is too long... Another, chrome plated, $250.

ASTRA Modelo 1921(400): 9mm Largo, VG,  $225, FFL.  Arsenal rework with replaced slide numbered to frame(pitted), dull grey finish, pitted bore... Another, this time with thinning blue, VG, also matching and bore pitted, $325, FFL. Either gun comes with original mag, checkered wood grips, import marks, and a holster.

ASTRA 600/43: 9MM, EX, $300, FFL. Mismatched #s, P date, original mag, holster. No German or import marks. Missing lanyard loop.

ASTRA 300 PISTOL: .32acp, VG, $700, FFL. Wood grips... Another, EX, $800. sn 594249. Neither are Nazi marked. Holsters for both.

AUSTRIAN m.1844 AUGUSTIN horse pistol: .67cal, EX, $500. Belgian conversion from tubelock to perscussion. Highly polished and nickel plated, nice bore, nice wood. All markings thoughtfully removed. Original guns go for $3500!

AUSTRIAN GASSER, M.1874: 11mm, VG, $900. One of the largest revolvers ever made. Mine is complete and looks good, but doesn't work and someone has filed back the forcing cone and cylinder sleeve. See below.

BABY LUGER: .380acp, VG, $350, FFL. Made by Erma. Missing extractor, but gun ejects the shells most of the time. It may have been removed to improve function. It's just a flat piece of steel. Holster.

BACON 2ND NAVY revolver: .38rf, VG, $3000.  I usually don't have investment-grade guns, but sometimes I get lucky. I bought this pistol at the Dec '13 Civil War show in TN for $600. All the heavy-hitters were there, and the night before too, so I don't know how they missed this. I didn't know much about Bacons, but recognized that this one was fine & rare, so I didn't quibble on price. When I got home and turned to p.466 in 2007 Flayderman's, I was stunned. Base value is $2250 + 20-40% for the Rollin White patent date on cylinder.

This may be the very first revolver with a swing-out cylinder. Made to stop half way, by slot in recoil shield. Only 325 produced. Grey mottled finish, sharp edges, shiney bore, works perfectly. 'C.W. HOPKINS... 1862' on barrel.

BAVARIAN WERDER m.1869 pistol: 11mm, VG, $2000. Peabody variant. This is not the one at the bottom of this page which was painted black. Yours will have the original finish. Works perfectly, no repairs, and shiney bore mikes .460". The Bertram 11mm Montenegrin cases fit this gun best; load with .455 Webley dies and bullets. I also have .480 Ruger cases which can be used, 50c ea. Unit marked '3 Ch R 4 16'.

BELGIAN OPEN-TOP revolver: .38 S&W, G, $225. 10% nickel remaining, medium frame. Works OK, but firing pin is too short. Both Belgian and German proof marks. Similar to gun #1253 in Zhuk. 

BELGIAN WARNANT revolver: .450 Adams, VG, $500. Large topbreak with ring extractor and single Pryse latch. Works perfectly, and is very tight. ~30% nickle remaining. Nice floral gutta percha grips with weird gargoyle motif. Unmarked except for Belgian proofs, but I have 2 others, and one is marked 'ML', which stands for "Manufacture Liegeoise d'Armes a Feu". They were competitors of Francotte. Although I have 3 of these now, they don't appear anywhere on the Internet or in any book. Similar to Zhuk #328. Can also use .455 Webley, but factory ammo would be too hot. Good bore mikes .451". Holster.

BELGIAN CONSTABULARY REVOLVER: .38 S&W, G, $100. Pocket 6-shot type with lanyard ring. Works perfectly. One chamber is cracked and filled with lead(barely visible). This is what can happen when you shoot modern ammo in antique guns.

BELGIAN TOP-BREAK revolver:  .38 S&W, VG, $300. Pryse type w/ring extractor and checkered wood grips. ~75 nickel. Not working.                                                         

BERETTA, 1934 shooter: .380, VG, $250. FFL. "RE" marked and dated 1942, holster. Re-nickeled.

BERGMANN-BAYARD, M.1910: 9mm, VG, $1200, FFL. Made in Belgium, reblued, works fine. (sold)

BROWNING HI-POWER, Inglis No. 2: 9mm, VG, $750, FFL. FTR 63 rework of 1944 pistol w/90% black enamel finish. 3 matching #s (4T9403), perfect bore. Comes with an original unissued holster, rod and lanyard. Original 'JI' mag, replaced lanyard ring.

Nazi marked BROWNING 1922: .32ACP, VG, $400, FFL. Original checkered wood grips & magazine, C-range, mirror bore, Nazi marked holster.

BRITISH BULLDOG revolvers: Out-of-Stock now; check back in 3 months. .32's & .38's are $160, .44's & .45's are $250.

COLT 1862-1962 Centennial pistol: .22short, EX, $260, FFL. Rock Island Centennial single-shot miniature 1860 Army. Barrel and cylinder must be removed to load each time. Comes in a nice padded presentation case. 6" rifled barrel should shoot well if you can see the sights; I can't. Low sn- 140 RIA.

COLT S.A. FRONTIER shooter: .44-40, VG,  $900. Typical cowboy mod: barrel cut short and funky front sight installed. At least he crowned the muzzle this time. '50s re-nickel with Franzite grips added; now you've got B-western. So you have the best of both worlds. Early round head ejector with original brass spring. Works perfectly. Good bore mikes .431",  matching #s. Made in 1888, at the height of the Old West era. Comes with a black quick-draw holster.

COLT 1911A1, 1943: .45acp, EX, $1200, FFL. Main defect is that the rear sight dovetail has been widened slightly for an MMC sight.

Only other "defect" is a polished ramp. Ordnance wheel mark is not bright, so probably arsenal refinished. Some tiny pitting on slide not visible in pics.

JO-LO-AR shooter: 9mm Largo, G, $250, FFL.  Scarce & weird Spanish cavalry pistol made in 1925. These are the only auto pistols which can be cocked and loaded with one hand. This one  is missing the lever(palanca) which made this possible, but it could  be easily fashioned from 5/16" bar stock(remind me to furnish a photo copy of one). Instead, someone has installed a cocking knob, because the slide has no serrations. This gun has been thru a lot, probably fired with .38 Supers which fit fine, but are way too hot. It works perfectly, but the slide is bent slightly, the hammer pin is incorrect, and there are some file marks in the barrel hinge area. Repaired left grip, holster... Better one with palanca, $600.  Learn more

PARKER HAMMERLESS revolver: .32 S&W, VG, $225. Didn't know Parker made revolvers? This was the first "hammerless" type made in ~1888. Too rare to appear in Flayderman, but it is similar to the Spencer Safety Hammerless revolver. Unusual solid-frame design with thumb safety. ~60% nickle. Tight lock-up, but cylinder tends to index too far. Nice grips, nice bore.


PERRIN revolver: 11mm, VG, $2000.  550 DA Perrins were imported during our Civil War; mine is a later version with SA and topstrap added. In-the-white, light pitting over all, engraved. Works perfectly. 3 replaced screws and the ejector knob. Perrin apparently invented the barrel-collar ejector, later used by Nagant and F&W. Good bore mikes .424".

REMINGTON ROLLING BLOCK m.1871 Army pistol: .50, F, $300. Good for display or parts only, not safe to fire. Works, but has an altered chamber, breech block, hammer & frame. No extractor, poor bore, severe pitting, wrong springs, muzzle filed. Grip is VG and forend has a small loss.


REMINGTON SMOOT No.3 revolver: .38cf, VG, $550. Early 1878 production w/o barrel rib. Works perfectly, with tight action and sharp edges. 90% nickel remaining, some minor pitting.

Cut-out in frame is larger than the originals', and .451" 230gr bullets(swaged) can be loaded. Previous owner reports that it is more accurate than a Ruger Old Army(and a lot cheaper).  Remingtons were not cut for shoulder stocks. Cabela's once sold these for $350.

RHEINMETALL 1922 auto pistol: .32acp, VG, $300, FFL. A sleek and well-made German pocket pistol similar to the Ortgies, but much more rare. Especially mine, which has the early top serrations and partial barrel sleeve. Not the earlier Dreyse, also made by Rheinmetall. They were known mainly for machine guns. Nice grips, wrong mag. Crown N proofs, no export marks. Holster. This is the type of gun commonly used in the street riots of 1920's Germany.


R.I.C. revolver: .38-40(!), G, $300. Earlier version of the Frontier type with checkered wood grips and brass front sight, made before 1893 in Belgium. Works well and has a good bore. Replaced lanyard ring. Marked "THE SHATTERER" on top strap. Barrel is marked 'C.F. 44 W', but the bore is too tight for that caliber(.405" groove). This is a common problem with Belgian revolvers. 10mm bullets are a good fit.

On this one, cylinder rotates, but hammer won't hold cock. 3 mashed nipples, repaired hammer and dent in cylinder. Complete, except for loading lever and trigger spring. It appears that a lever from an 1861 Navy Colt could be adapted.


SCHEINTOD 3-shot gas pistol: 12mm, VG, $125. Lightweight aluminum, refinished, with original Nico walnut grips. Ammo can be made from .410 shells. These were also used for signal flares. Comes in repro box, with instructions in German. Not ready.

STAR MODELO MILITAR 1920: 9mm Largo, VG, $350, FFL.  (sold)  An important piece to have in any auto pistol collection, this model was the first of a long series culminating in the Argentine Ballester Molina. It combined the configuration of the Colt 1911 with the lockwork of the Ruby and used a slide-mounted hammer block safety, originated by Star, then dropped, only to re-appear on other makes. Like the Astra 400, it can shoot several calibers. A scarce gun issued to the feared Guardia Civil(state police) and obsoleted by 1921.

British TRANSITION REVOLVER: A c.1850 hybrid incorporating features of the Pepperbox and a wedge-frame Colt. Very well made and working well; could probably be shot, but I haven't tried it. DA bar hammer is offset to allow use of sights; well-rifled bore is about .42cal(60 bore). Lots of floral engraving and light pitting. On top of barrel is the inscription "W.A. BECKWITH, LONDON" and a "TFB" in gothic script on medallion on back of grip. Appears to be made in the style of John Blissett of Liverpool. $800. (sold)

Transition revolvers were some of the best products of the British gun makers art, and the Guild system which worked well for small production, but fell into disfavor when interchangeablity of parts became important. The market for these elegant weapons was mainly the British privileged class; most were engraved and it seems that no two were exactly alike... Such is the nature of gun collecting that the once-prized possession of a nobleman is now worth less than many mass-produced weapons, and is affordable to those of much lower social standing.

Second gun is an 1872 Tranter in .32rf Long. These were competitors of Webley, more complex in design. $250(sold).
