The checkered walnut grips rate very good plus with only minor flattening of the points and a few light handling marks, they are numbered to the gun. Included is one bright-bodied magazine with wood base, the base is unmarked and the body shows remnants of minor oxidation staining.

Luger Snail Drum Loading Tool

Lot 205: Luger Snail Drum Loading Tool

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

Description: This is a "B/N" marked "trommel magazin" loading tool signifying manufacture by Bring Brothers of NŸrnberg. The tool is an overall gun metal gray with some sparse brown staining and light remnants of some very light pinprick pitting.

The spring tension is still robust and the loader rates very good-fine condition as cleaned overall. It is highly likely that a talented metal finisher could re-apply a rust or immersion blue and return the loader to excellent condition. A very scarce accessory overall. (35575-27A)

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

Description: serial #84762, 45 ACP, 5" barrel with a bright excellent bore which shows only the very beginning of some extremely light frosting which would not even warrant mention were it not for nice condition of the pistol. The metal surfaces on this nice 1913-manufactured Colt retain about 95% original blue, the loss due primarily to frontstrap wear, the mainspring housing toning to pewter like high edge wear in some minor fading. The correct diamond checkered walnut grips rate about excellent with the left grip showing a couple flattened points, the right grip showing slightly more wear on its bottom edge and the diamonds. The Colt barrel is appropriately "P H" marked on its hood and the pistol comes with one Springfield Armory folded-base lanyard loop magazine. There is a very small impact mark on the rear sight, it is unobtrusive. A very nice example overall of a 1913-produced Colt 1911. (35580-1) {C&R}

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

Description: serial #27224, 470 NE, 23 5/8" barrels with bright excellent bores. The barrels retain 98% blue showing very minor fading at the muzzles and some very faint scattered scratches. The scalloped and bolstered frame is border engraved and exhibits 98% color case-hardening while the rolled edge triggerguard shows some slight fading blue on the extended tang.

The forearm has an engraved lever release and the stock has an engraved steel grip cap with covered sight trap, a right hand cheekpiece, and a Decelerator recoil pad providing a length of 14 7/8". The triggerguard tang extends to the grip cap and is fastened with three engraved screws. The gun features a ramped front blade sight, a quarter rib having one standing and three folding leaf sights, dovetailed blanks for future scope mounting, double triggers, non automatic safety, ejectors, and sling swivel studs, one mounted under the barrels and the other in the toeline of the buttstock. Included is the original box and a very nice maker's leather hard case containing nickel plated snap caps and a test target. The Chapuis guns are unique in that they have a split double underlug type bolting system and the ejector mechanism is contained within the lugs rather than the forearm making for a very strong and reliable action. This is a beautiful rifle which has proven to be a most capable African dangerous game gun and in the best of the big calibers. (115522-1)

Very Rare Winchester 1968 model 70 Palma trophy match bolt action rifle

Lot 212: Very Rare Winchester 1968 model 70 Palma trophy match bolt action rifle

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

Description: serial #868708, 308 Win, 26" target weight bull barrel with a deeply counter bored muzzle and a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain about 98-99% original polish and matte blue with a similar amount of original anodizing on the bottom metal, the only loss being a handful of light scratches on the barrel, chiefly in the area of the front sight and a couple around the front steel target block. The smooth walnut marksman style stock rates about excellent with only some very minor handling marks and some light finish streaking over some of the open grain, chiefly in the area of the forend, ahead of the floorplate and left side below the action. The rifle is equipped with original factory steel target blocks, Redfield International Globe front sight and Redfield International micrometer rear sight. The factory handstop is in place in the factory rail and the original box for the Redfield receiver sight is included. These very rare special 1968 Palma Match rifles were specially glass-bedded and free-floated and were extremely limited production, only about 75 being made for the matches; the right side of the barrel has a special "Palma Trophy Match" roll marking. Competitors in the 1968 match were given the option of purchasing the rifle with which they shot, making these rarely offered on the commercial market. Obviously the rifles were superior as the United States won the Palma Match in 1968. A wonderful example of this extremely rare rifle overall. (35450-7)

British No. 4 mark I (T) sniper rifle by Savage

Lot 217: British No. 4 mark I (T) sniper rifle by Savage

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

Description: serial #0C5441, 303 British, 25" barrel with an excellent bore. The barreled action retains about 97% deep, likely postwar, blue. The receiver socket is serial numbered and shows the U.S. ordnance bomb while the receiver has the square "S" of Savage Arms Company with the forward telescopic sight base mount partially obscuring the "U.S. Property" marking. The front scope pad has dual-staked screws (staked on the screw, not the mount), two of which are finished bright, one is blue and with minor slot damage; the rear sight mounting pad has unstaked screws. The No.32 Mk.I scope was manufactured by Houghton, Butcher Manufacturing Co. and is serial numbered "3342". The scope retains about 95% original blue on the body with the adjustment turrets showing flaking of their black enamel finish, retaining perhaps 75%. The optics are mostly clear however the post and crosshair reticle needs a bit of attention as the crosshair is slightly unraveling or there are some errant hairs within the scope. The scope mount is primarily a dark gray-blue with numerous tool and grind marks from the manufacture process, it is un-numbered except for the saddle and top-ring numbers (each ring was numbered in turn to the base so they would not be separated). The wood rates very good plus to excellent with much original varnish and only minor dings and handling marks, the screw-on comb piece being stained slightly darker. The buttstock is appropriately numbered with Holland and Holland's "S 51" stamp along the toeline with some proof or acceptance marks directly to the rear of the triggerguard. The original scope's serial number is also stamped in the wood at the wrist just behind the receiver socket "3342". The bolt is appropriately numbered to the rifle, and the trigger is appropriately grooved. A single "S" marked 10 round magazine is included. Very few of these Stevens-Savage rifles were converted to sniper models in 1942, this example is correctly dated to have been the one of those rifles. A nice example overall of a very scarce Second World War British sniper which appears to have been correctly Holland and Holland manufactured . (35498-8) {C&R}

Smith & Wesson No. 2 Old Army Revolver with Special Factory Finish

Lot 221: Smith & Wesson No. 2 Old Army Revolver with Special Factory Finish

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

Description: serial #55288, 32 rf, 6" ribbed octagon barrel with an excellent bore. This revolver is finished with a factory two tone, silver plate on the frame and blued barrel and cylinder. The barrel and cylinder retain about 25% original blue finish blending with an even brown patina with some scattered light pitting present, mostly just at muzzle. The frame is a mix of original silverplate and bare metal along with large areas of the base plating applied before the silver. We estimate that there is about 30% original silver plate, 30% bare metal and 40% base plating remaining. There is one patch of notable pitting on the left of frame at the the top of the grips. The two piece rosewood grips rate excellent plus with 95% original finish remaining. This revolver shows little use and some evidence of poor storage over the years. The revolver comes with a factory letter confirming the configuration and finish and showing it as part of a 100 gun shipment to J. W. Storrs on October 30, 1867, of those 100 guns, 28 were listed as "plated breech". Also included is a detailed research report conducted by the consignor. A neat and unusual Old Army revolver.

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

Description: serial #330857, 32-20 Win, 4 3/4" barrel with a bright very good plus to near excellent bore which shows strong rifling but with scattered minor light pitting. The barrel and ejector rod housing retain generous original blue, retaining perhaps 80%, the balance a smooth gunmetal gray with some light handling marks and spotting along the right side of the barrel. The long flute cylinder retains quite a bit more blue, perhaps 40%, the balance toned to a deep gunmetal gray, also with some minor handling marks and dings with two of the radii between the flutes showing a large number of minor impact marks. The frame retains about 40% original color case-hardening, the balance turning to a pleasing mottled gray case-hardened patina with drifting to silver on the left recoil shield. The straps are faded to gray while there is generous original blue on the root of the triggerguard and at the butt, the butt also showing some minor impact marks. The checkered hard rubber Rampant Colt grips rate about very good, the left grip showing a bit more wear than the right, both have been numbered to the gun at a later date, the original markings having been scrubbed from the left grip, the right grip being a much more modern replacement which is slightly ill-fitting. The included factory letter shows shipment to Hibbard Spencer and Bartlett of Chicago Illinois in April of 1914 in a two gun shipment, and also confirms the "double action cylinder" (long flute). The front sight was regulated slightly during the period of use. The revolver seems to function well mechanically. (35506-18) {C&R}

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

Description: serial #223594, 44-40 WCF, 4 3/4" barrel with a bright very good plus to near excellent bore which shows some scattered minor pitting. The barrel retains 90-92% original blue, the loss due primarily to high edge wear on the ejector rod housing and wear on the full length of the left side of the barrel, also with a light impact mark atop the sight blade. The cylinder retains about 75-80% original blue with wear at the rear of each of the flutes, where the revolver would naturally lay in a drawer or box. The frame retains perhaps 85% original color case-hardening which is muting somewhat and mixing with a speckled mottled brown and silvery case-hardened patina. The grip strap and triggerguard show perhaps 85-90% original blue with more wear along the back strap. The trigger shows good pale fire temper blue with excellent colors on the hammer. The smooth bone grips have mellowed nicely with age and are a toffee-cream color with some minor drying cracks along their butt edge, they are un-numbered and fit very well. The gun seems time properly and lockup well. The enclosed factory letter shows shipment to George Tritch Hardware Co. in Denver Colorado in March of 1902 as part of a three gun shipment, the grips are not listed. Overall a very attractive Frontier Six Shooter Bisley model which would likely still shoot very well but has excellent investment potential also. (35506-36) {C&R}

The ejector rod housing is nicely refinished and retains about 95% original blue. The cylinder retains about 75% original blue, the loss due primarily to leading edge wear and some circumferential wear.

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

Description: serial #962, 45 Colt, 5 1/2" barrel with a good to perhaps near very good bore which shows some strong evident rifling but with minor scattered pitting its full length. The metal surfaces on this weary veteran are primarily a pewter gunmetal gray mixing with some scattered areas of smooth brown patina. There are areas of minor pitting and one small area slightly more moderate on the loading gate and on the left side of the hammer spur. The barrel, frame and cylinder numbers all match and there is a very light "A" inspectors marking present on the triggerguard, the left side "U.S." marking is still very legible. The smooth walnut grip rates good showing an old cleaning and is now slightly undersized overall, each side showing a minor chip from its leading edge which was sanded-in. This revolver was part of Colt's lot No. 1, received at Springfield Armory in November of 1873 and in December of that same year was shipped to the Arsenal at Leavenworth Kansas, destined for the 10th cavalry. As an all-matching example this revolver was part of the 1,197 revolvers shortened and refurbished at Colt in 1895-1896. The revolver still times properly and locks up, albeit slightly loosely. A wonderful example of a three-digit 1873-produced Single Action Army that clearly spent its time on the American Western frontier. (35506-3) {ANTIQUE}

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

Description: serial #10386, 45 Colt, 7 1/2" barrel with a very good bore which shows evident rifling but also minor pitting its full length. The metal surfaces are a lightly cleaned deep pewter gunmetal gray with a few of the edges being slightly rounded but with all the markings remaining legible. There are some traces of nickel plate widely scattered over the surface of the revolver but the numbers are all matching, the cylinder showing only traces of "386" due to the cleaning. The smooth walnut grip rates about very good, showing an old refinish which has left the metal slightly proud overall, also with the leading edge of each grip showing a small chip. There is a small "A" inspector marking beneath the serial number on the triggerguard and the "U.S." marking on the left side of the frame is still clearly legible. The gun functions well mechanically although lockup is somewhat loose and there is quite a bit of end-shake in the cylinder. Interestingly, U.S. government records show serial number 10389 was issued to "Custer family", this number being merely 3 serial numbers away from that gun. Serial numbers of nickelled Colt revolvers are also found on both sides of this number. A couple of the screws are modern replacements, a number of the screws still in place have some very minor slot damage. Overall an intriguing and rare cavalry model revolver still in its original configuration. (35506-5) {ANTIQUE}
