Smith & Wesson No. 2 Old Army Revolver

Lot 1: Smith & Wesson No. 2 Old Army Revolver

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #8115, 32 rf, 6" octagon barrel with a very good bore that shows just light oxidation but is mostly bright. The metal surfaces of this revolver retain about 93% original blue finish with most loss due to flaking on cylinder and on left side of barrel ahead of cylinder. The areas of loss show a lovely even brown patina and the hammer and ejector rod show lots of mellow faded original color case-hardened finish. The original rosewood grips rate very good plus with 95% original finish remaining with a crack in the left side - this seems stable and could likely be made to disappear by a talented wood man. This is a very nice Old Army with lots of original bright blue finish. (16343-61) {ANTIQUE} [Stephen Bachman Jr. Collection]

Colt Camp Perry Model single shot pistol

Lot 13: Colt Camp Perry Model single shot pistol

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #1784, 22 S, L, LR, 8" barrel with an excellent bore. This 1931 manufactured pistol retains about 95 - 96% of its original blue finish. There is evidence of surface pitting on the left side of the frame just below the Rampant Colt that covers an area of about 1/4" x 3/4" as well as some scattered light spots in other areas. The high edges, bottom of the triggerguard, and toe of the grip frame are silvering from wear. The machine checkering on the backstrap is silvering on the top of the flat diamonds. The checkered walnut grips with silver Colt medallions are in good condition and correctly numbered to the pistol. The screw escutcheon on the right grip panel is starting to pull through the wood and as a result the two middle stamped numbers of the grip are difficult to read. Probably in an effort to prevent the failure of the escutcheon as in the right grip panel, the left one has a .025" thick fitted piece of brown plastic sandwiched between the grip panel and the frame. The exterior of the grips are in very good to excellent condition with light compression to the diamond points and handling blemishes. The fit of the barrel assembly to the frame is slightly loose but, everything still functions properly. Only 2,488 of these target pistols were produced by Colt and this is an opportunity to own one. (86288-11) {C&R}

The lever and lower tang have some minor stabilized oxidation. The buttstock rates otherwise very good and is a deep russet brown with minor dings and handling marks and two filled circular inlets left and right, likely where some medallion or other coin was inlaid, later removed and an old synthetic filler applied. The brass buttplate is an ocher patina and is slightly proud around its periphery. The action is tight and functions well, the sliding safety is somewhat stiff. A very good Sharps and Hankins Naval model overall with a very good leather barrel covering. (36334-1) {ANTIQUE}

Smith & Wesson 320 revolving rifle

Lot 21: Smith & Wesson 320 revolving rifle

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #883, 320 Smith & Wesson, 18" ribbed round barrel with an about very good bore which shows strong evident rifling but with minor frosting its full-length. The metal surfaces are dark gray-blue with some freckling and toning to brown; likely being a faded older rust blue finish. There are some scattered light handling marks and the odd scattered spot of light pitting here and there, with one area of the cylinder showing some light pitting on one side. The checkered mottled red hard rubber S.&W. grips rate good with the checkering worn nearly smooth, they are un-numbered and fit very well. The mottled red hard rubber forend rates very good with the checkering starting to wear to flat-top. It is un-numbered and shrinkage from the years has resulted in a small gap at its rear where it meets the frame. The walnut buttstock rates very good plus to about excellent with a good deal of original varnish and only light dings and handling marks from the years; there is the very beginning of a very light drying crack at the right side forward screw escutcheon. The hard rubber buttplate has worn nearly smooth and shows a tiny chip from its toe. The attaching iron has faded to an even smooth plum patina toning to pewter on the lower tang. Frame, cylinder, barrel and barrel latch are all numbered alike, the buttstock assembly is un-numbered. Barrel-to-frame fit exhibits very light vertical play and the gun seems to time and lockup well. The original rear sight is intact, the front sight is a simple blade, hand-made from copper, in a slightly shallow dovetail. A few of the screw slots show some light damage. A very good, very honest example piece overall. (36341-1) {ANTIQUE}

Starr arms company Civil War percussion carbine

Lot 22: Starr arms company Civil War percussion carbine

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #10819, .54 cal. percussion, 21" barrel with an oxidized bore which shows some light and some moderate pitting but with strong evident rifling. The metal surfaces are primarily a dark plum-brown patina with some areas toned to a dull pewter. There is overall light pinprick pitting with a few areas of scattered silvery case-hardening on the hammer and frame. The barrel band is a dark tarnished goldenrod patina and shows a number of small dings, most prominent along its bottom edge; the brass buttplate is a similar patina. The smooth walnut stock rates very good with overall minor dings and handling marks from use, a bit of raised grain from exposure to the elements and a few very light chips here and there. The wood-to-metal fit is really very good and the left side of the butt is carved during the period of use "J.B 24 Cav". The forend rates about very good showing a bit more use and wear with a small chipped area at the rear of the band and the wood showing some shrinkage at the frame. The gun functions well mechanically and the saddlering is intact; the barrel is properly numbered to the frame. A diligent search of the muster rolls of the 24th New York Cavalry may uncover the identity of "J.B" (interestingly serial #10818 was issued in March of 1864 to Company F. of the 13th Illinois Volunteer Cavalry, indeed most Starrs appear to be 1864-issued meaning you could discount anyone in the 24th NY who was killed or discharged before 1864). Overall a very good example of a Civil War cavalry unit-issued Starr carbine. (36334-3) {ANTIQUE}

Lot 26: Smith & Wesson first model Schofield Wells Fargo marked revolver

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #2714, 45 S&W, 5" ribbed round barrel with an about very good bore which has bright spots and strong rifling but shows scattered minor pitting. The metal surfaces on this old veteran are a deep gun metal gray with some interspersed brown oxidation speckling. The revolver shows overall light pitting with a few areas which could be characterized as moderate, with an area on the right side of the barrel about 1 1/2" which appears to be blood protein pitting. The smooth walnut grips rate fair-good showing an old refinish and are now slightly undersized. They are stamp-numbered to the gun and the right grip shows an interior repair to some minor cracks, caused by the grip screw escutcheon being drawn too far inward. Barrel-to-frame lockup is very good with little play and the gun seems to function well mechanically although occasionally overtimes slightly, with the lockup also slightly loose. The cylinder and frame are numbered alike, the barrel number cannot be discerned but the Wells Fargo inventory number (which is identical to the serial number) matches cylinder and frame. The right side of the barrel lug is neatly stamped with one-piece die "W.F & CO'S EX" along with Wells Fargo's inventory number "2714". The front sight is slightly worn down or perhaps was regulated during the period of use. Overall a salty but completely honest Wells Fargo Schofield.

Winchester model 1886 lightweight lever action rifle

Lot 30: Winchester model 1886 lightweight lever action rifle

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #156404A, 33 WCF, 24" barrel with very good plus to excellent bright bore which shows strong rifling but minor frosting within the grooves. The barrel and magazine tube retain about 92% original blue, the loss is due primarily to even fading and very light scattered handling marks and scratches from the years. The nosecap has toned primarily to a pewter patina with the receiver being a pleasing plum brown toning to pewter on the sharp edges. The bolt and hammer show strong original blue while the lever has toned to a smoky mottled pewter gray showing only remnants of original case color. The smooth walnut buttstock rates very good plus with much original varnish and only minor dings and handling marks, the shotgun buttplate is slightly proud at the heel and toe and may be a correct replacement. The forend rates very good plus as well, also with only minor dings and handling marks. The front sight is a later Lyman replacement, now missing its bead, the original semi-flat-top Winchester rear sight is in place in its dovetail. The action is crisp and positive. A very fine example overall that likely would perform well in the woods and as an investment. (36328-34) {C&R}

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #36665, 40-65 WCF, 26" octagon barrel with a bright, as-new bore. Barrel, bolt and magazine tube retain 98% plus high-quality restored blue, the magazine tube showing a number of small scratches, most likely from reassembly, the barrel as well showing some minor handling marks. The nosecap, receiver and lever all exhibit a similar amount of vibrant color case-hardening. The receiver has been lightly engraved, loosely in a factory No. 6 pattern, with loose scroll and geometric bordering. The right frame flat features a game scene vignette of a black bear while the left scene features a buck and doe vignette amidst a woodland backdrop. The checkered pistolgrip buttstock rates excellent with some lovely crotch-feather grain and only light handling marks, the ebony insert on the bottom of the pistolgrip is intact. The forend is in a similar state of condition showing a bit more wear at the carry point at the rear of the forearm. The buttstock does not fit precisely, there being a small gap along its very front edge, the forearm as well shows a couple small gaps front and rear. There is a thin blade front sight in place with semi-buckhorn rear and the gun is equipped with a factory single set trigger. It is a likely that the barrel is a modern excellent quality replacement, correctly roll marked and it would appear as though the wood as well are modern high-quality offerings (the tang is "77XX" marked, the inletting in the buttstock is un-marked). The factory records confirm caliber, octagon barrel, set trigger and the checkered pistolgrip stock, shipping in October of 1889. Overall a high-quality deluxe custom engraved 86 with tons of eye appeal that you needn't be afraid to take afield if one wished. (36348-1) {ANTIQUE}

Massive Halfstock Percussion Market Gun Marked Potts & Hunt

Lot 35: Massive Halfstock Percussion Market Gun Marked Potts & Hunt

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 4 bore, 55" barrel with good but moderately oxidized bore. This American made iron mounted gun is assembled using an 1853 contract musket lock marked Potts & Hunt, London. The barrel and most of the metal surfaces display a smooth mottled brown patina with some scattered surface oxidation specks, the exception being the bar lock which exhibits a brown and pewter color. The barrel has "No. 2" marked on the top about 6" from the breech which appears to be of the period of manufacture and the lock has a double line border and "Potts & Hunt London" engraved in the center. The straight grip stock rates good to very good showing dings and scratches with some age cracks running parallel to the grain and having cracks showing behind the top tang, on the left side emanating from the lock screw, and in front and back of the lock plate all over a smooth drying oil finish. The butt has been somewhat modified as there is no plate and it shows evidence of there being some type of pad fitted because there are nail holes around the perimeter. The length of the stock over the wood butt is 14 3/4" and three holes in the butt have been filled with lead, most likely to balance the gun. The gun has a pewter nosecap, a single cross pin set in brown metal escutcheons, a small blade front sight, and a single ramrod thimble mounted on a full length under rib. What appears to be the original two-piece ramrod with brass ram is present, the parts joined by a well fitted metal ferrule. The gun weighs 20 lbs. and is almost six feet overall, and it actually functions very well. These large market guns usually were heavily used and finding one in original very good condition as this one is provides an opportunity to own a unique piece of hunting history.
