Description: serial #665257, .22 LR, 6" barrel with a bright excellent bore.

Winchester Pre-War Model 70 Bolt Action Rifle

Lot 4: Winchester Pre-War Model 70 Bolt Action Rifle

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

Description: serial #13828, 22 K-Hornet, 24" barrel with a near excellent bore that is mostly bright with a few light pits toward the breech area.

A set of target blocks has been mounted to the receiver and barrel just forward the rear sight dovetail which hold a Lyman Targetspot with a fine target crosshair with dot and very good optics. The scope is in excellent overall condition and has a rubber eye cup. Lysle Kilbourn was a well known gunsmith and designer and was possibly best known for his "K" series small bore cartridge modifications. He first developed his popular "K-Hornet" cartridge in the early 1940's, likely when this rifle was modified. An excellent 1938 vintage sporting rifle that was modified by a well known period gunsmith and should make a fine varmint or target shooting arm. (45628-12) {C&R}

German Reform Pistol

Lot 9: German Reform Pistol

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

Description: serial #4150, 25 cf, 3" four shot barrel cluster.

The two piece checkered hard rubber grips rate very good plus with light wear but no chips. Pistol comes in a wooden presentation case which has been retrofitted to accept this pistol.

Strong firearms company breechloading signal cannon

Lot 20: Strong firearms company breechloading signal cannon

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

Description: 8 bore, 17 1/2" barrel with a very good bore which shows minor green oxidation its full length. The overall length of the barrel to rear-of-striker is 19 5/8". This wonderful example retains all of its original brass and bronze hardware right down to the axle pins and brass tire washers. The hardware has toned wonderfully to a warm tarnished goldenrod patina and the "Strong Firearms Company" breech marking is still crisp and fully legible showing only some light softening of the eagle at its center. The mahogany carriage rates very good plus to near excellent overall with what is likely its original varnish, with light handling marks and light evidence of some very light flaking due to some exposure to the elements. There is some light crazing of the finish and the tires exhibit some honest drying racks, they are very light. The mechanism of this extremely fine signal cannon is tight and mechanically functional and there is a correct lanyard, along with what is likely the original pulley for directing the lanyard cord, affixed to the bottom stretcher between the carriage cheeks. The strong eight bore signal cannon was suitable for a yacht of 25 to 40 feet in length and used a 12 dram powder charge. Overall a superb example in a wonderful state of condition, of one of the larger bore, Strong Firearms Company signal cannons that certainly must be an attention getter when it is fired. (35662-19)

The checkered walnut grips rate good with some moderate flattening of the points on the right grip while the left grip shows a couple definite impact marks and light scars, they are appropriately numbered to the gun. The frontstrap of the gun is marked "133. R. 5.-24" (133rd Regiment, the Royal Saxons, portions of which were partakers of the legendary 1914 Christmas day truce and "football" game in no man's land with the Seaforth Highlanders). One bright-bodied wooden-based magazine is included, it is numbered 5035a and rates about excellent. Really a very good example of a later-were manufactured LP.08 pistol with a very neat regimental marking, that would likely perform as well at the range as it would as an investment.

U.S. Model 1903 Style NB National Match Rifle

Lot 30: U.S. Model 1903 Style NB National Match Rifle

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

Description: serial #1272012, 30-06, 24" star-gauge barrel with an excellent, bright bore. This rare rifle is one of only 245 sold by the armory and has an "SA/12-25" dated barrel with the metal retaining 95% plus of the original blue on the barrel, nosecap, and rear sight base with some mild silvering at the muzzle and light fading along some of the projecting edges, mostly on the front sight base. The receiver has a commensurate amount of the original parkerized finish with traces of mild fading along the projecting edges and surfaces. The right side is drilled and tapped for a Lyman No.48 receiver sight but the stock has not been inletted (this is correct for a rifle not ordered originally with the Lyman sight). The triggerguard and floorplate assembly are predominately a dark but even plum-brown color with traces of parkerizing remaining. The brightly finished bolt, electric penciled with a matching serial number and fitted with reverse safety and headless cocking piece, is in fine shape with only minor freckling present on the bolt handle. The Style B walnut pistolgrip stock has an excellent original oil finish with subtle but visible tiger-stripe figure along the buttstock and only a few very minor handling marks scattered about the surface of the wood. The right side of the butt is further inlaid with a rectangular silver plaque that reads, "HENRY W. WHITNEY/CO. I/SEVENTH REGIMENT". A cursory search sheds no light on why Mr. Whitney's name would be present on a rifle (we presume it is a marksmanship award or trophy) but the plaque has dark spots of mellow tarnish and fits precisely with just a hint of proudness to the metal. Additionally, the oil finish of the wood is slightly lighter in tone around the plaque due to earlier silver polishing. These are among the rarest of the '03 National Match rifles, this example is in fine-near excellent condition, and could benefit from some further research. (74756-78) {C&R}
