Replica Antique & Modern Firearms

The handgun is a frequent choice of those seeking a weapon. Since their invention and throughout their many stages of development, sidearms have given and taken away much from the world. They helped tame the Wild West, sparked a World War, unnecessarily ended countless lives, and have been efficient tools for self-defense, saving many from an untimely end.

For a certain segment of firearms collectors, antique handguns reveal their strong interest in history, offering an opportunity to acquire and own a significant piece of the past. Auctions are a treasure trove of specimens.

For other enthusiasts, replica handguns are a more practical and affordable choice. These über-antique reproductions come with the added benefit of being pristine display objects that are often completely functional, allowing shooters to safely indulge their passion. Others pursue their interests through modern handguns in almost every imaginable style and caliber. Auctions brim with replica, antique, and modern handguns by a host of manufacturers.
