Lot 5: lovely Merwin Hulbert & Company large frame single action revolver

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

Description: serial #13676, 44 Merwin Hulbert, 7" round barrel with a bright excellent bore which shows a couple areas of very light pitting.

The barrel, frame and cylinder arbor are all assembly numbered "3074" while the cylinder is numbered "3075", clearly a factory error as the cylinder, barrel, and frame all match precisely in finish and hue. The chambers are immaculate and the forcing cone area of the barrel is bright retaining all its original nickel. The barrel catch button shows a number of small impact marks.

James Rodgers percussion knife pistol

Lot 6: James Rodgers percussion knife pistol

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

Description: About .28 cal. percussion, 3 1/2" octagon nickel silver barrel with a lightly oxidized bore. This is a rather nice example of these well-made Sheffield knife-pistols. The nickel silver barrel has toned to a very pleasing Monel patina showing British proofs on its left diagonal flat. The bolsters and rear grip frame are similarly toned, all showing evidence of a very light cleaning. The main spearpoint blade measures 3 1/2" and is marked "James/Rodgers/Sheffield" at the ricasso with remnants of a light etching "protector" and the 2 1/2" pen-knife blade is similarly ricasso-marked. Both blades are primarily a dull gun metal gray showing some minor sharpening marks, light oxidation staining and a handful of a very minor pinprick pits. The bone scales remain very nice and a mellow cream color, the left scale being intermingling cream and gray. The right scale shows a very minor crack and some light insect damage, the left scale retains its iron tweezers inset into the butt section. The nipple has broken off the breech leaving a truncated stub and the hammer spring is either broken or not present, otherwise the arm seems to function well and would likely work fine with a replacement or repair of the hammer spring; both blades snap smartly into place with strong springs. Really a very nice example overall which displays just fine as-is and would present even better with a bit of mechanical work. (36120-16) {ANTIQUE}

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

Description: serial #8P44533, 338 Win mag, 24" barrel with a bright excellent, likely unfired, bore. This is a stunning rifle. The barrel retains all its original factory blue with the polished muzzle still brilliant. The receiver and bottom metal retain all their factory satin chrome plate and feature the typical Olympian-grade high quality engraving, this example with three signatures. The bolt assembly remains bright overall with the tiniest bit of staining on the bolt body near the anti-bind lug and on the end of the bolt knob; the trigger retains all its factory gold plate. The long extractor shows the nice factory crosshatch jewelling. The checkered and carved walnut pistolgrip Monte Carlo stock rates excellent with only a very light rack mark here and there. The contrasting rosewood forend tip and gripcap feature white spacers, the gripcap with a diamond-shaped gold monogram plate which is un-engraved. The forend tip shows a couple minor drying checks in the finish on its right side but the stock shows absolutely no evidence of salt wood contamination. The checkering and carving is excellent quality and the stock is of course, numbered to the gun and the factory recoil pad is in place. The receiver ring shows a depiction of a bull moose left and bellowing elk right, signed by J. Baerten (Jose Baerten). The standing grizzly bear on the floorplate is signed by R. Greco (Reno Greco) and the mountain lion on the bow of the triggerguard signed by "A.M." (Alfonse Mare'chal). The bolt face and feed ramp are absolutely immaculate as is the chamber, indeed the receiver rings show no evidence of scope base impressions and the filler screws appear to never have been turned. This is truly a lovely rifle embellished flawlessly by three of Browning's most well-thought-of engravers which appears to have been unfired since leaving Belgium in 1968. The original factory owner's manual in its black paper sleeve is included, the warranty card was sent in as it is detached from the last page. (36162-31
