Maynard model 1882 No.10 midrange target and hunting rifle

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

Description: serial #15136, 32-35 Maynard, 28" part octagon part round barrel with a bright excellent bore. The barrel retains perhaps 75% original blue, the loss due primarily to light flaking to brown and high edge wear. The frame retains about 90% plus original case colors which have muted with the years, the sharp edges and contact points toning to pewter. The checkered American walnut pistolgrip buttstock rates excellent with only light handling marks and nearly all its original varnish, the checkering showing a nice diamond at the center of the pattern and mullered borders. The buttplate is rifle-style and is correctly nickel plated, retaining perhaps 40% original nickel. The checkered schnabel tip forend rates excellent as well, the barrel is numbered 8523. The barrel features a Beach combination front sight, no rear sight seat and the tang is equipped with a Maynard Elevating Peep sight graduated to 120 yards (marked to 110). The lock-up is exceptionally tight and the action is crisp. One of the screws shows some slot damage but the balance show strong remnants of nice fire temper colors. The lever has a slightly odd contour and may have been modified during the period of use or perhaps ordered in this configuration. Really a very nice special order number 10 midrange target and hunting rifle overall. (35556-6) {ANTIQUE}

The gun is currently equipped with a pair of smooth factory Smith & Wesson rosewood target grips which were fitted at a later date as they are not numbered to the revolver. The left side of the frame beneath the grip shows a factory service mark "3 72", denoting refinish or replacement of a major part, the blue finish however appears flawless in every respect and the factory numbers on the rear of the cylinder and the barrel match the frame.

Winchester model 1897 trench shotgun

Lot 340: Winchester model 1897 trench shotgun

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

Description: serial #953819, 12 ga., 21" barrel choked cylinder with a bright excellent bore. The shotgun retains about 92-95% of a later, what is likely Winchester factory reblued finish. The smooth walnut buttstock and grooved forearm rate very good plus to near excellent, also showing an old, very professional refinish, retaining the light dings and handling marks one would expect from the years. The left side of the frame is appropriately "U.S./(ordnance bomb)" marked and the barrel ahead of the takedown collar shows an appropriate ordnance bomb marking as well. There are no remnants of the left-side stock acceptance marking which was likely a casualty of the refinish. In addition to the ordnance markings there are appropriate Winchester oval proofs, each with an additional single center punch marking directly adjacent to it. It is known that Winchester had a contract for repair and refurbishing of Winchester model 12 and model 1897 shotguns in 1944. Many Winchester model 1897 shotguns which exhibit this factory-quality reblued finish are seen with additional punch marks adjacent to the oval Winchester proof, as seen on this example; it is surmised these are factory refinish markings (ref. Combat Shotguns by Canfield). The handguard also shows remnants of some light pitting and a handful of minor dents; it features four rows of ventilation holes, no patent date and appears to be correct in every respect. The action operates properly and is mechanically very crisp. Overall a very nice example of what is likely a Winchester-refinished model 1897 Second World War trench gun.

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

Description: serial #732904, 12 ga., 20 1/2" barrel choked cylinder with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain about 85-90% later, good-quality blue with minor wear on the sharp edges and high points of the receiver, magazine tube wear and some scratching and rub marks on the barrel directly ahead of the frame. The smooth walnut pistolgrip buttstock rates about very good showing an older refinish with a neatly stamped "Denver/Police Dept." marking on the right side of the butt, it is slightly light from the refinish but fully readable. There is a 2 1/2" crack on the right side of the stock where it meets the frame and a 3" and 1" crack on the left side of the buttstock in the same area. The grooved forend rates very good plus, also as nicely refinished. The shotgun is equipped with a six-groove ventilated handguard with bayonet lug which shows no patent marking, the bead is missing from atop the barrel collar. The gun seems to function appropriately and lock up is tight. The toeline of the buttstock shows a neatly filled hole where the rear swivel base was removed, the front sling swivel has been removed from the bayonet lug. Bruce Canfield's Combat Shotguns shows an interesting photograph of members of the Denver Colorado Police Department examining their new Winchester 1897 trench guns in March of 1921. An about very good example overall of a nice Police Department-marked Winchester trench gun. (See bayonet in silent auction) (35450-17) {C&R}
