**SOLD** SMOF3493 - COLT GOLD CUP MKI SERIES 80 NATIONAL MATCH IN 45 ACP SERIAL NUMBER FN07116.
Colt introduced the Gold Cup National Match Automatic in 1957. The Gold Cup was designed to offered competitive shooters a pistol which was accurate enough to go straight from the dealer's shelf to the match competition firing line. Every Gold Cup pistol came from the factory fitted with specially hand-fitted parts (every metal to metal contact part was hand honed, hand fitted and hand finished), reduced slack between barrel and slide, adjustable spring-fed trigger stop, wide grooved trigger, adjustable square notch rear sight, flat mainspring housing (arched optional), deeply serrated receiver face for firm grip, specially designed extractor to eliminate damage to empty cases, flat grooved slide rib, improved (enlarged) ejection port, more positive (larger) slide serrations and beautiful royal blue finish on sides with the remainder sand blasted to reduce glare.
Colt introduced the Gold Cup MKI/Series 70 National Match in 1970. Series 70 Colt Gold Cup pistols incorporated Colt's "Accurizor" barrel and bushing which used a spring-steel, "finger collet" bushing that gripped the end of the barrel, which had also been slightly redesigned with a slight belled end to accommodate the collet bushing. The new "Accurizor" barrel and bushing was intended to improve the intrinsic accuracy without sacrificing reliability.
Colt introduced the Gold Cup MKI/Series 80 National Match in 1983. Series 80 Gold Cup pistols incorporated a new firing pin safety system that made use of a small plunger located inside the slide to block the firing pin against movement, thus preventing the pistol from discharging accidentally should the pistol be dropped or hit hard while fully loaded with a round in the chamber. Two small sheet-metal levers working alongside the trigger pushed aside the plunger, which would then free up the firing pin to fire the weapon once the trigger had been deliberately depressed. Around 1988 it was decided that the collet bushing wasn't all it was cracked up to be, as there were a few reports of the bushing fingers breaking in use. In addition, it was felt that modern CNC manufacturing techniques had allowed tighter factory tolerances with the older solid bushing setup. As a result the original mil-spec barrel and bushing configuration was reinstated.
This Gold Cup was manufactured after 1983, it has the correct Elliason type adjustable sights series 80 type safety system and diamond checkered walnut grips. The pistol is in like new condition, retaining 99% + original blue. Pistol comes with the original Colt brown wood grain box and papers. $995.00 (View Picture)
**HOLD** SMF5535 - FEG MODEL PA-63 PISTOL IN 9X18 SERIAL NUMBER BF29398
FÉGARMY Arms Factory of Hungary started producing Walther PP/PPK clones in the late 1940s starting with their Model 48 which differed from the Walther PP only in minor details. By the late 1950s FÉG began making broader changes resulting in the PA-63, which uses a 9x18mm Makarov round. It quickly became standard issue to both Hungarian military and police forces. Due to its popularity and relative durability FÉG later issued models using .32ACP and .380 ACP caliber rounds (FÉG AP9 and PMK-380 respectively).
The Military standard PA-63 version sports a two-tone polished aluminum frame with black slide, grips, trigger and hammer assembly. While unusual for military issue in that a reflective polish was used, it was chosen due to its relative cheapness as well as quicker build time. Problems related to the durability of the aluminum frame were resolved prior to the development of the PA-63 in 1961 with the production of the FÉG R-61 Police Pistol. The addition of .1% titanium to the aluminum alloy solved premature alloy frame wear problems inherent in the earlier FÉG aluminum framed pistols. This development was then applied to all aluminum framed FÉG guns including the PA-63.
This pistol has the nicer looking blued frame. This pistol is in excellent condition and it may nave never been fired. $195.00 (View Picture)
**NEW ADDITION** SMOF6052 - TL74- COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER- .45 COLT CALIBER 4 ¾ INCH BARREL- BLUE- IN ORIGINAL “STAGECOACH” BOX CIRCA 1968
Serial number 48886SA with beautiful color case hardened frame. Probably new in the box with the original warranty/instruction sheet. However, close inspection reveals that sitting in the cardboard box for the last 55 years with some parts contacting corrugated cardboard, there are a few tiny rust specks on the right side of the bright polished hammer, and on the hump part of the backstrap by the upper screw- not big spots, just tiny specks that need to be carefully cleaned. The gun should be lightly oiled and placed in a plastic bag to prevent direct contact with the cardboard. There are a few minute handling dings, nothing really noticeable, just not quite 100% perfect in every way, and we don’t like to surprise people.
This is a “second generation” gun, one of about 74,000 made circa 1956-1974, after Colt realized the huge mistake they made by discontinuing the Single Action Army during WW2 and not resuming production. The huge popularity of western theme television shows, (not the mention the growing popularity of Sturm Ruger’s single action models!) convinced them to bring the SAA back in 1956. In 1976 the “third generation” replaced the “second generation” models with some manufacturing differences $1995.00 (View Picture)
SMOF3571 - GLOCK MODEL 22 CHAMBERED IN 40 S&W SERIAL NUMBER CML339US.
Glock pistols feature an excellent combination of reliability and accuracy. Their high-tech engineering and construction create a handgun that can stand up to the punishment of even the most unforgiving conditions. The Glock pistol's Safe Action trigger system offers distinct benefits over conventional trigger systems, with increased smoothness and consistency. Glocks have almost 50% fewer components than conventional handguns of the same caliber. Glock handgun frames are made of a virtually indestructible synthetic that is stronger than steel, yet 86% lighter. Glock pistols can withstand temperatures ranging from -40 F to +158 F and still come out firing. Metal Glock components are finished with a unique surface treatment called Tenifer that makes those parts virtually as hard as a diamond and even more corrosion resistant than stainless steel. Glock handguns are designed with a natural grip angle that complements instinctive shooting. The ergonomic frame design features a bore axis and weight distribution that ensure a controlled shot, even under the most adverse conditions. The polymer frame gives a much softer recoil than that of conventional guns and the barrel has hammer-forged rifling for increased velocity and greater accuracy. Pistol is in excellent (like new) condition with a mirror bright bore. Comes with one Glock brand 10 round magazine. $495.00 (View Picture)
**SOLD** SMOF6098 - COLT GOLD CUP NATIONAL MATCH- .45 ACP CUSTOM COMPETITION GUN
Serial number 18610-NM made in 1966. This is in the period when “Gold Cup national Match Pistols were at their peak. This pistol has been converted this to a competition gun for rapid fire competition shooting. Modifications include replacing the original barrel with a new one that is specifically made for use with a threaded compensator. Excellent bore. The recoil spring guide and bushing has been replaced with a solid rod type for smoother operation. The magazine catch and slide stop are both extended. The grips are Colt/Pachmayr with the gold Colt medallions that provide excellent grip. Wide serrated front sight and factory adjustable Elliason rear sight. About 95%+ blue remains, which appears to be factory on the frame and right side of the slide. The left side of the slide shows a couple of scratches towards the front and may have been touched up. Factory adjustable trigger with great pull and close to zero overtravel. Comes with one factory Colt magazine. Previous owner reported it was a “sweet shooting gun”, but we have not fired it. If you don’t like compensators, then you can simply replace the barrel and be right back to conventional M1911 style. Why settle for a brand X copy of a Colt M1911 when you can get this National Match one for a very reasonable price. $895.00 (View Picture)
SMOF6092 - HIGH STANDARD MODEL 102 SUPERMATIC CITATION .22 LR TARGET PISTOL- RARE 8 INCH BARREL- WITH EXTRAS
Serial number 826585 with the highly desirable 8 inch barrel, made in 1958 at Hampden, CT. This is one of the finest .22 LR caliber target pistols ever made, and the High Standard 102 Citations were very popular with serious competitive shooters of that era. Superb quality workmanship, and the factory high gloss blue finish has abut 99% remaining, showing just a bit of wear on the edges of the stabilizer, and a couple of small scratches from honest use. Excellent bore. The 8 inch barrel has the rear sight mounted on the barrel, not the slide as with the shorter barrel lengths, due to NRA rules about maximum sight radius. This comes with the detachable factory muzzle brake or stabilizer, one barrel weight (two could be installed and they are not hard to find if you want to add a second weight). The grips are custom walnut thumb rest type, probably made by Herrett, which were considered nearly essential by serious shooters of the era. The grips are excellent plus, with no chips or dings. Comes with one factory 10 round magazine.
An exceptionally handsome example of one of the all-time great competitive target shooting pistols which has also earned substantial collector interest. High Standard arms are a great potential collecting niche. See the High Standard Collectors Association website http://www.highstandard.org/ for more information. $950.00 (View Picture)
SMOF6025 - EXCELLENT COLT MODEL NEW SERVICE SERIAL NUMBER 347246 CALIBER 357 MAGNUM.
Colt was in innovation leader in revolvers starting with the Paterson in 1836. They introduced the first double action revolver in 1877 and the first swing out cylinder revolver in 1889. The New Service revolver was next step. It was their large frame was chambered in everything from 38 caliber to 476 caliber. Colt made about 356,000 New Service revolvers, half for the U.S. army in 45 ACP.
The 357 magnum cartridge was first introduced by Smith and Wesson in 1935 and quickly became "The Cartridge" for hand gunners. Colt finally responded by chambering a small number of New Service revolvers in this caliber.
This pistol was manufactured in 357 magnum and the Colt factory letter confirms this. The pistol is in about 97% condition. The wood grips have a few minor dings. The frame came from the factory with hole for a lanyard loop. This was filled in with plug.
Though 356,000 New Service revolvers were made very few were made in this caliber. This pistol is in excellent condition. $2900.00 (View Picture)
**SOLD** SMF5510 - – 19737 - BERETTA MODEL 950BS .25 ACP “JETFIRE” SEMI-AUTO PISTOL -
- Serial number BER44077V made by Firearms International in Accokeek, MD for Beretta. After the Gun Control Act of 1968, import of many small guns was prohibited, but they could be manufactured in the U.S., so F.I. set up a plant in Accokeek. MD to manufacture and/or assemble guns for Beretta and several other foreign brands. In 1978 Beretta ended up buying the plant to begin their own U.S. facility which ended up with them getting the contract for the M9 9mm pistol. (See http://forums.gunbroker.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=65074 for more history.)
The Beretta 950 “Jetfire” is a semi-automatic pistol designed and manufactured by Beretta beginning in 1952. It is a very simple and reliable pocket pistol, with a single action trigger mechanism and tip-up barrel. The frame is made out of aluminum alloy, the slide and barrel are carbon steel. Those made after 1968) are provided with a thumb safety similar to the 1911 Colt. This is popular as a backup, self-defense pistol that is intended for undercover agents, police officers or individuals licensed to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense. However, as a primary self defense weapon, the puny .25 ACP cartridge is marginal, but better than being unarmed. The accuracy of the pistol is adequate although the small grip and short sight radius may limit some shooters to be effective only at short ranges. Its small grip also makes it prone to bite (the slide can cut the top of the shooters hand when fired). These are made without an extractor, and use blowback pressure to clear the shells.
This example, made in the mid 1970s is in excellent plus condition with about 98% original finish, excellent mechanics. An interesting variation for the serious Beretta collector. $150.00 (View Picture)
SMOF6103 - EARLY 4 DIGIG SERIAL NUMBER THOMPSON CENTER .45 CALIBER “PATRIOT” SINGLE SHOT PERCUSSION PISTOL
Serial number 4176 [right side of bbl by rear sight] These are very popular with shooters due to their accuracy, well shaped grip, excellent adjustable sights, and double set triggers. The blued barrel, color case hardened lockplate and brass trim makes these really nice looking guns as well. Shooters advise people to hold the gun in your hand when ramming the ball, not resting the butt on a bench which places a lot of stress on the stock and could lead to cracks or breaking.
K.W. Thompson and Warren Center formed the company bearing their names in 1965 and began making the popular “Contender” single shot pistol. In 1970 the expanded into making high quality, but affordable black powder muzzle loaders, but with designs that appeal to modern shooters rather than trying to imitate traditional designs (which seldom look right anyway). (You must print out and read the owners instruction manual from http://www.tcarms.com/assets/manuals/noncurrent/Patriot_Supplement.pdf prior to firing.) This is a previously owned gun, with minimal signs of use, and is a nice item for the folks who collect Thompson Center products, as well as for someone looking for a potential shooter. Excellent bore. These are classified as ANTIQUE and no FFL is needed. $425.00 (View Picture)
SMOF6090 - SMITH & WESSON MODEL 28-2 HIGHWAY PATROLMAN IN 357 MAGNUM SERIAL NUMBER N227626, 6 INCH BARREL.
The Model 28, also known as the Highway Patrolman, traces its heritage back to the Smith & Wesson Registered Magnum which morphed into the Model 27. In the late 1940s and the first part of the 1950s Smith and Wesson was the only American gun company manufacturing a .357 magnum revolver. Since this relatively deluxe model was the only revolver available for this cartridge at the time, police departments, as well as individual officers and private shooters, requested from Smith and Wesson a more strictly utilitarian .357 magnum revolver. S&W responded with the Highway Patrolman (later renamed the Model 28 in 1957). The manufacturing changes made for a more affordable revolver, though mechanically the Highway Patrolman is the same as the more ornate Model 27. A classic N frame revolver, the Highway Patrolman is blued, but does not have the high polish finish, saving labor costs. The top strap and frame rounds are bead blasted to achieve a matte appearance.
This is the earlier and more desirable version with a pinned barrel, it was manufacture between 1975 and 1977. The pistol is in Excellent condition with 98% original blue and an excellent bore. $795.00 (View Picture)
SMOF6088 - REMINGTON BOLT ACTION XP-100 PISTOL IN .221 FIREBALL CALIBER WITH SCARCE ORIGINAL CASE- NICE!
Serial number 7507 made in September 1963. In the late 1950s and early 1960 Remington was one of the most innovative gun makers, and their daring 1959 introduction of the revolutionary Nylon 66 .22 caliber semi-auto rifle with a nylon stock and futuristic styling was a big gamble. And, it was a huge success.
They followed this with another totally new concept, a single shot bolt action pistol, firing an ultra high velocity centerfire cartridge, with the grip mounted under the center of the gun, and using the same nylon material for the radically different stock, which was truly ambidextrous, and fit most people very comfortably. The action was basically the successful 40-X rifle action with a different style bolt handle. Thus, the XP-100 (so-called because it was the 100th experimental project they had been working on) was introduced in 1963. Again, they had a winning product which popularized handgun varmint hunting, and even handgun metallic silhouette target shooting at metal cutouts of various critters at ranges up to 200 yards. The success of the XP-100 eventually inspired competition from the Thompson Center “Contender” single shot pistols beginning in 1967.
This early version of the XP-100 has the 10.75 inch barrel and is in the .221 Fireball caliber offered between 1963 and 1985. Eventually, a longer 14.5 inch barrel was offered in eight additional calibers, and six model variations, but this is the original and most collectable version, showing its pioneering configuration. All production of the XP-100 finally ended in 1998.
The .221 fireball is a slightly shorter version of the .222 Remington yielding about 2,650 feet per second with a 50 grain bullet, and a mid range trajectory of only 2.6 inches at 200 yards. Although Remington dropped the .221 Fireball chambering for the XP-100 in 1985, it has been offered in the Model 700 rifle, and recently CZ began offering guns in this caliber.
Some of the early XP-100s were sold with a zippered hard case, but these are very seldom seen. They originally had a thin plastic insert molded to fit the pistol and hold a box of ammo, but these proved fragile and deteriorated rapidly. Included with this pistol is the original case, although it now has foam padding and a blue cloth covering on the interior. The zipper works fine and the case has some assorted minor scuffs and scrapes, but is overall fine to excellent, except that there was originally a “Remington/Dupont” logo printed on a foil type material that fit in a recess on the side of the case which has disappeared.
The pistol itself is in about 99% condition, with only a couple of extremely minor blemishes on the nylon stock sides, and the usual minor scratches or scrapes on the base of the grip. Excellent plus bore, and previous owner reported it was a great shooter. This is complete with original factory open sights on the vented rib. These were factory drilled and tapped for scope mounts and a Weaver base is installed so you can easily add the scope of your choice.
Remington did a recall in 1979 to change the bolt and safety so that you could open the bolt with the safety applied, but this has NOT been modified. A plus for the collector, but a potential safety issue you should be aware of if considering shooting this (after approval by your competent gunsmith- we sell all guns as collector items only).
There is a great write up on the XP-100 in the Dillon “Blue Press” for October 2007 http://www.dillonprecision.com/docs/oct_07_36.pdf and http://www.dillonprecision.com/docs/oct_07_37.pdf if you want to read more about these. Note that the XP-100 was originally made as a pistol (not converted from a rifle) and thus has the same legal restrictions as other handguns. But, it would be illegal for someone to modify a bolt action rifle to this sort of configuration without prior BATFE approval, so don’t go getting any ideas.
A great find for the collector of Remingtons, hunting arms, single shot weapons, or who just likes innovative ideas. Great condition, and with the seldom seen early factory hard case. $750.00 (View Picture)
SMOF6089 - SSP-91 (SINGLE SHOT PISTOL MODEL 1991) IN 7MM- 08 REMINGTON, MAGNAPORTED WITH RED DOT SCOPE MADE FOR MAGNUM RESEARCH BY ORDNANCE TECHNOLOGY, INC
Serial number MR4608. This fits into a narrow niche of single shot handguns, many for traditional rifle calibers that appeal to some people as innovative, powerful and exciting. Others look at them and wonder why anyone would want one. If these sound interesting, read on, and send us a check! Many people recognize these as a product of Magnum Research Corporation which made them from 1991 through 1993, but this is actually one made by Ord Tech in the brief transition period after Magnum Research bought the design, and is marked with both companies names.
American Gunsmith, January, 1999 reveals the following history of the design: The single shot Pistol of 1986 (SSP-86) was designed by John Foote and produced by Ordnance Technology of Stetson, Maine. It featured a rotary breech based on artillery principles in use through World War I. The SSP-86 was primitive when compared to its improved successors, and it functioned best with rimmed pistol cartridges. One of the sub- contractors on the SSP-86 was AGS Machining Co. Inc. of West Groton, Mass, headed by Alfred R. Straitiff, which made gun parts for several firearm companies. Straitiff and his son Rich thought that the SSP-86 had merit, but needed a total redesign in cocking, extraction, safety, and barrel interchange and came up with 38 improvements to the original design. Al Straitiff created Competitor Corporation, Inc. in 1988, and began production of the Competitor. He didn't need permission from Ordnance Tech, since that firm since that firm didn't buy the design from John Foote, and since rotary-breech-cannon concepts are in the public domain. Straitiff and his son filed for a patent on their improvements to the SSP-86 on April 3, 1990, and patent #5,105,569 was issued on April 21, 1992. Ordinance Technology continued to produce the SSP-86 through 1990, and freely borrowed some improvements from Competitor to build their SSP-91. Magnum Research Inc. Of Minneapolis sold the SSP-91 from 1991 through 1993. In 1994, Magnum Research introduced the Lone Eagle, an updated SSP-91. These firearms have a separate cocking lever on the left side of the grip, are barreled actions only (not interchangeable barrels), and do not have a safety blocking the firing pin. Although very similar externally, the Competitor and the Lone Eagle do not share parts or even all functions. They are totally separate firearms that resemble each other due to their SSP-86 ancestry.
Other handguns in the single shot niche would include the Remington XP-100, the Thompson Center Contender, the Ruger Hawkeye, and I think that Colt, S&W and even H&R made some single shot target pistols similar to the Hawkeye.
This has a 1.5 to 4.5 power red electronic “Micro Dot” scope by Oakshore Electronic Sights, Inc. with Weaver bases and rings, contemporary with the pistol so it is a complete package for a collector. We are not sure what 7mm/08 loads might be suitable for this and will leave that for the purchaser to discuss with his gunsmith or lawyer. A rare treasure for someone with exquisite (or perhaps eccentric) taste, or exploring a unique collecting niche! Used excellent- and the price includes the scope. $495.00 (View Picture)
SMOF5562 - – 19789 - RUGER STANDARD MODEL .22 SEMI- AUTOMATIC PISTOL – 6 ½”
Serial number 17-67266 made in 1981 with 6.5 inch standard weight barrel, fixed sights and black synthetic grips with the silver Ruger eagle. This is in as new condition, and we wish there was a box for it, but there is not. Comes with one nine round magazine. The “standard model” was Bill Ruger’s first product, introduced in 1949, and with few minor improvements over the years remains in production today as the Mark III. The original design lasted from 1949 through 1982 with only the 1952 change in the color of the eagle on the grips from red to black in honor of the death of Alex Sturm, Ruger’s partner. In 1982 the Mark II was introduced and in 2005 the Mark III.
This pistol is one of the last of the original Standard Model pistols, and appears to be unfired since it left the factory, with 100% original blue finish. Nice! If you want a shooter, there are hundreds of thousands of these out there that have been used, but let’s save this one for a collector looking for pristine condition. $375.00 (View Picture)
SMOF5560 - 19787 - RUGER BLACKHAWK IN .357 MAGNUM, OLD MODEL 3 SCREW, 6.5” BARREL -
Serial number 63425 made in 1965. A nice honest old used gun with just a bit of holster wear on the sides of the barrel and front of the cylinder, and sharp edges, so about 95% or more of the original finish remains. Excellent bore and mechanics. A very nice example of one of the early and desirable old model 3 screw Blackhawks in .357 Magnum caliber. $425.00 (View Picture)
SMOF5847 - - 22828 - GERMAN P-1 (P-38) 9MM SEMI AUTOMATIC PISTOL BY WALTHER
Serial number 019853, made by Walther. The classic WW2 era German P-38 pistol was such a good design that it was adopted after WW2 for use by West German military forces as the P-1 and also for their police forces. The only change was the use of aluminum for the frame instead of steel, which reduces the weight slightly. This “P-1” is in used excellent condition, made in October, 1973 with the usual Walther commercial marks and proofs. Right side of slide is marked “C.A.I. GEORGIA VT/ GERMANY” to comply with federal law. Excellent plus bore and mechanics, and it looks like it has been fired very little. About 95% of the finish remains, anodized on the aluminum frame and phosphate on the remaining parts, with mainly holster wear on the sharp edges of the frame, and a few minor handling marks anywhere. Slide is electric penciled 853 to match the frame number. A good representative example of the classic Walther designed P-38 pistol which proved to be a reliable sidearm for the Wehrmacht during WW2, and again with the West German forces with NATO, finally being phased out in 2004. The P-38/P1 is unusual in that it has a single action/double action trigger design, so that the pistol can be carried with the hammer down, but fired by pulling the trigger, instead of having to carry cocked and locked as with the M1911. This also allows the operator to take immediate action in case of a misfire to simply pull the trigger to try again before having to rack the slide to try a new cartridge. We sell all guns as collectors items only, not as shooters, but a competent gunsmith would almost certainly confirm that this is a great pistol. This comes with one original Walther magazine complete with the NATO stock numbers marked on it. Sorry, we can not accept credit card payment for this item. $425.00 (View Picture)
SMF5463 - TAURUS MODEL 80 4 INCH IN 38 SPECIAL SERIAL NUMBER 747241
Taurus Revolvers have been widely recognized as one of the best in the industry for more than seven decades. In that time, Taurus has pioneered the art of the wheelgun with features like the yoke detent, full length ejector rod and the Taurus Security System and with guns like the famous Taurus Raging Bull series of hunting handguns. As the century turned, Taurus took revolvers to a new level with the introduction of Taurus Total Titanium. These lightweight, full-power handguns remain as the best that can be gotten.
The Taurus 80 is essentially a Brazilian copy of the Smith and Wesson Model 10, made on Smith and Wesson machinery in Brazil under license. The six-shot revolver is chambered for the .38 special and comes with fixed sights, custom Pachmyer grips, and a heavy 4-inch barrel. The revolver is in very good to excellent condition with about 95% plus finish remaining and an excellent bore. $225.00 (View Picture)
SMOF5304 - SMITH AND WESSON PREWAR K22 TARGET PISTOL. SERIAL NUMBER 645361.
The Smith and Wesson hand eject revolvers, first introduced to the U.S. and World market in 1896 are still in production. They are one of the most successful and respected revolvers in the world. In the 1930's S&W introduced 22 caliber with adjustable sights for target shooting built on the medium sized frame (the K frame). It was an immediate success and until the advent of the semi-automatic target pistols was the preferred pistol for target competition. It was also an immediate hit with sportmen who wanted a small caliber pistol for "plinking".
This pistol was made sometime in the early 1930's and did not see much use. The high polish bluing would rate at about 95% with just high edge and muzzle wear, and a turn line on the cylinder. The action is tight. The grips are correct with minimal wear. The K22 pistols are eagerly sought after by collectors and are still fun shooters. $1100.00 (View Picture)

**NEW ADDITION** SMOF6192 - 20426 - RUSSIAN MADE SKS 7.62 X 39MM SEMI AUTO RIFLE MADE BY TULA IN 1953 WITH FOLDING KNIFE BAYONET- NICE!
- Serial number NM1965 made at Tula arsenal in 1953, as indicated by the arrow within a star symbol on the rear of the receiver cover. It was later arsenal refurbished to as new condition, ready for issue, probably in the 1960s-70s after the AK-47s replaced the SKS rifles in Soviet military use. The SKS is a pretty diverse collecting field with at least seven different countries known to have made them, and endless variations from there. I saw a very impressive display of SKS rifles at an Ohio show several years ago, so this is a field where you can still find a variety of guns at pretty reasonable prices. They were first made at Tula in 1949 but other Communist bloc nations built them well into the 1970 and even the 1980s for export sales. Some were made with folding spike bayonets, but this one has a folding knife bayonet. About 99% of the arsenal reblue finish remains. All matching numbers, although the 1951 dated stock is a renumbered “forced match.” The stock retains about 95% of the reddish lacquer finish, with a few minor chips, scrapes and flaked spots, but no nasty dings. Tiny Century import marks on the barrel.
The SKS is a Soviet semi-automatic carbine chambered for the intermediate 7.62×39mm round, designed in 1943 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. The rifle’s designation SKS-45, stands for Samozaryadnyj Karabin sistemy Simonova, 1945, (which roughly translates to Model 1945 Simonov semi-automatic carbine). Production did not start until 1949. In the 1950s, the Soviets took the SKS carbine out of front-line service and replaced it with the AK- 47; however, the SKS remained in second-line service for decades. It is still used as a Russian ceremonial arm today. These were pretty much the bridge between the full power Mosin Nagant rifle era, and the full auto AK-47 assault rifle era. Interesting and historic arms. This is genuine RUSSIAN made rifle, not one of the common Chinese knock offs. C&R eligible. $525.00 (View Picture)
SMOF6001 - 21088 - YUGOSLAVIAN MODEL 1924/47 8MM MAUSER SHORT RIFLE MADE BY KRAGUJEVAC ARSENAL- MITCHELLS’S MAUSERS “PREMIUM GRADE”
Serial number ZH3933 matching on the receiver, bolt, and stock and floorplate. Left receiver rail marked PREDUZECE 44, one of the various names of the Kragujevac Arsenal. Arsenal refinished to as new condition. This is the “premium grade- the top level of rifles offered by Mitchell’s Mausers which has been the source of most (and the best) of the large number of Yugoslavian Mausers sold in the last 10 years. Their seemingly limitless supply is nearly exhausted now, and values are climbing on the Yugos as more people begin to appreciate the quality and value from the very modest prices of these rifles.
Prior to WW2 Yugoslavia had purchased a number of Model 1924 short rifles and a full set of machinery to make them from FN in Belgium. Then they made more rifles in their own Kragujevac Arsenal, later known as Factory 44 (PREDUZECE 44). The Model 1924 rifles had an “intermediate length” action about ¼ inch shorter than the standard Model 98 Mauser actions used in the Gew 98 and K98 series rifles, but were otherwise very similar to the K98k. During the post- WW2 rearming of Yugoslavian forces under Marshall Tito and the Communists virtually all old rifles on hand were refurbished, and remarked with the communist crest (two sheaves of wheat bordering a torch, with the commie star above) and given a new model designation. This rifle is one of the Model 1924 short rifles, upgraded to Model 24/47 configuration with the new markings, and totally refinished at that time.
About 99% of the finish remains, with just a few minor scratches. The arsenal refinished stock is a pleasing medium brown color with a nice oil finish. Import marked (of course) and the ZH3933 number marked on the receiver with the light dot punch process over the deeply stamped 3933. Comes with the “accessory pack consisting of a sling, cleaning pull through and ammo pouches. An extremely handsome and interesting variant of the classic 98 Mauser family. Collecting Yugoslavian Mauser variations would be a fun and inexpensive specialty. See Robert Ball’s superb “Mauser Military Rifles of the World” for more on any type of Mauser rifle, and the definitive North Cape book, “Serbian and Yugoslav Mauser Rifles” by Branko Bogdanovic, devoted exclusively to the Yugos. Mitchell’s price on these (luck of the draw as to what you will get) is now $499, but our price for the exact rifle shown is $450.00 (View Picture)
SMOF6101 - RUSSIAN MODEL 1891/30 MOSIN NAGANT RIFLE 7.632 X 54MMR CALIBER MADE AT TULA IN 1936
Serial number 232879 matching, including the bolt which has been “force matched” during an arsenal overhaul. Bore has strong rifling and the tops of the lands look smooth, but the grooves are dark and may or may not clean up. Stock has been nicely sanded to a very smooth finish. No import marks noted. Metal parts with about 95% blue finish, thinning a bit from normal wear and starting to dull or turn plum in places. Comes complete with the leather “dog collars” for the sling. A very nice example of a WW2 vintage Mosin Nagant Model 1891/30. $250.00 (View Picture)
SMOF5634 - - 20199 - MARLIN MODEL 25 MN BOLT ACTION RIFLE .22 WMR (.22 MAGNUM) CALIBER WITH SCOPE -
Serial number 01292316. The Marlin Model 25MN was made from 1988 to 2003 and has a reputation for being an excellent, and very accurate rifle. It takes a 7 shot magazine (which is missing on this one). Rifle is equipped with iron sights as well as a Tasco 4 x 20 scope which fits in the grooved receiver. These were made with just the normal stained wood finish but a previous owner applied an attractive gray sandstone type coating which provides excellent grip, and seems to hold up nicely. There are a couple of tiny chips or scratches, but barely noticeable at all. Metal parts with 99% original blue finish, just a scratch on the side of the barrel by the front sight and some rust on the safety button. Overall excellent condition with excellent plus bore with Marlin “microgroove” rifling. $125.00 (View Picture)
SMOF6104 - THOMPSON CENTER .36 CALIBER “SENECA” SINGLE SHOT PERCUSSION RIFLE WITH TARGET SIGHTS AND CASE
Serial number 57085. These are well liked rifles, but the .36 caliber version is much scarcer than the .45 caliber. This one has been somewhat customized by the previous owner by the addition of a Lyman 17 style front sight, and a Thompson Center tang sight, and addition of a deer emblem on the right side of the wrist. Excellent bore. Reportedly an excellent shooter, but we have not tried it ourselves. In addition to the upgraded sights, this comes with a “buckskin” type carrying case that might be a Thompson Center product.
K.W. Thompson and Warren Center formed the company bearing their names in 1965 and began making the popular “Contender” single shot pistol. In 1970 the expanded into making high quality, but affordable black powder muzzle loaders, but with designs that appeal to modern shooters rather than trying to imitate traditional designs (which seldom look right anyway).
(You must print out and read the owners instruction manual from http://www.tcarms.com/assets/manuals/noncurrent/Shooting_TC_Side_Lock_Black_Powder_ Guns.pdf prior to firing.) This is classified as an ANTIQUE and no FFL is needed. $425.00 (View Picture)
SMOF6100 - RUGER MODEL 77 BOLT ACTION RIFLE .243 CALIBER WITH HEAVY BARREL AND 3X9 SCOPE
Serial number 74-67910 made in 1980. Ruger makes excellent guns that sell for very reasonable prices. This one has been field used and shows minor wear and dings on the finish with about 97% remaining. Great bore. The stock has been sanded (probably to remove a scrape or two, so it is not as pretty as the original Ruger factory finish, but if you like to do stock finishing, you can make it prettier than it is. Excellent bore. This has Ruger rings and a TASCO 3x9 x32 scope. Remember, this is the HEAVY BARREL version, great for eliminating varmints. $475.00 (View Picture)
SMOF5662 - - 20171 - SAVAGE MODEL 93R17 BOLT ACTION RIFLE .17HMR CALIBER- BLUE, SYNTHETIC STOCK -
Serial number 0200993 with 7 shot magazine and factory installed Weaver scope bases. Barrel is a very handy 20.75 inches long. This is a previously owned gun, and except for a few minor, almost invisible, scrapes on the side of the stock this would pass for new. These have n excellent reputation for accuracy and the .17 HMR caliber is very popular, but the bore sure looks small, even compared to.22 caliber. Nice rifle for someone into the new fangled magic rifles with super small calibers and plastic stocks… Savage makes good guns that are reasonably priced, like this one. $150.00 (View Picture)
SMOF5677 - 20156 - CLASSIC WINCHESTER MODEL 94 CARBINE IN .30-30 CALIBER -
Serial number 3869830 made around 1973. Nice quality gun, with walnut stocks, and excellent plus bore, probably fired very little. Metal parts (except receiver) retain bout 98-99% of the original blue finish. Receiver finish has flaked in a small area on both sides, leaving ugly bare metal spots and rust specks surrounded by blue. A few very minor stock blemishes from storage and handling, but nothing bad- just enough so you won’t be reluctant to take this out in the field. An excellent example of one of John M. Browning’s most famous designs, and the finish blemishes are reflected in the price. $395.00 (View Picture)
SMOF5969 - **PRICE REDUCED** YUGOSLAVIAN SKS-STYLE M59/66 7.62 X 39MM SEMI-AUTO RIFLE (EXCELLENT)
Serial number H256214. These were built at the famous Zastava State Arsenal for the Yugoslavian military. These are high quality rifles, not some of the cheap junk like some of the Chinese rifles. Hardwood stocks. The 11.5 inch blade type bayonet folds under the barrel. The M59 was the basic Yugo made version of the SKS rifle, and the Model 59/66 added a 22 mm diameter grenade launcher which appears visually like a flash suppressor or muzzle brake on the end of the barrel. The front sight has a fold-up "ladder" for use in grenade sighting. When the grenade sight is raised, the gas system is automatically blocked and the action must be manually cycled for safety as rifle grenades must be fired with a special grenade launching blank cartridges for safety, and this feature helps ensure that a ball round is not loaded from the magazine. The gas system is not automatically unblocked when the sight is folded, however, and must be manually opened to again allow semi-automatic operation. Barrels are not chrome-lined. Both the grenade launcher and grenade sight are NATO spec, which is a bit odd for a Commie bloc weapon, but they must have had their reasons.
This is excellent plus condition, probably unissued, with 98% or better original finish and only a few minor storage and handling dings or scrapes. The stocks are a bit darker or oil stained on these, or maybe just darker wood, than on our Collector Select grade rifles, and the serial number on the stock may be less distinct, or even "force matched" at an arsenal before being sold off as surplus. Still, an excellent representative examples of the SKS rifle which was widely used by Commie nations during the Cold War, as well as by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War. Still covered with the original Yugo grease and needing a good cleaning. Bores should be as nice as the outside, but we have not cleaned them. Have several, all basically the same so we are using one photo for all of them, so serial number may differ from the one in the photos, but condition will be the same.
Please note that this rifle has been preserved in cosmoline for long term storage. The cosmoline should be completely removed before attempting to fire it. A little bit of cosmoline in the bore acts just like a glob of mud and will either split or ring the bore with one shot. A little bit of cosmoline in the action can gum up extraction, ejection, feeding and cocking, too. We have reduced the price to $450.00 (View Picture)
SMOF6099 - MARLIN MODEL 120 MAGNUM 12 GAUGE 2 ¾ INCH OR 3 INCH PUMP ACTION SHOTGUN 26 INCH IMPROVED CYLINDER- VENT RIB
Serial number A16648 with 26 inch vent rib barrel having the two bead style sights. Improved Cylinder choke. Metal is excellent plus with about 97-98% original blue finish with just a few traces of wear and field use dings. Excellent plus bore. The buttstock and forend have been replaced with wood from a similar model (except there is a small area at the top of the wrist against the receiver that had to be filled). The new wood has excellent cut checkering which provides a much better grip than the crappy pressed in checkering on the original wood. Good recoil pad. This model was made circa 1971-1985 and has a really slick action, and the uncommon ability to take either 2 ¾ inch or 3 inch 12 gauge shotshells. They even made some of these with 40 inch (!) barrels for Ducks Unlimited. A very reasonably priced gun that deserves to be put back in the field. $325.00 (View Picture)
SMOF5995 - 23023 - WINCHESTER MODEL 1897 12 GAUGE PUMP SHOTGUN-
Serial number 876463 made in 1932 with 30 inch 12 gauge barrel, full choke, mirror bright bore. This is the takedown model, and the lockup is nice and tight, and mechanics are fine. This is a field used gun that has been well cared for. Screw heads are crisp and unbuggered. Barrel has about 80-85% original blue, but the magazine tube has about 40-50% due to handling wear, and the almost none on the receiver. Buttstock is one of the few we have seen that is NOT cracked at the rear of the receiver, and while the varnish finish is flaked and scraped, overall the wood is pretty nice except for one long shallow bruise on the right side as shown in the photos. Missing the buttplate, but does not seem to have been cut down, just a case of the hard rubber buttplate getting broken and lost. Repro buttplates are readily available, and somewhere I have several old originals, but no idea where they are, or I would install one.
This is one of John M. Browning’s classic designs, with more than a million Model 97s made before production ended in 1957. It was the first really successful pump action shotgun made, and improved over the less successful Model 1893 Winchester which had been designed for blackpowder loads and. The only other pumps prior to these were one designed by C.M. Spencer (the Civil War carbine inventor!) and Andrew Burgess, the latter using an awkward but functional arrangement where the entire pistol grip would slide back along the axis of the stock to work the action. The Burgess was only built 1893-1897 and finally bought out by Winchester. Spencer was a good inventor, but lousy businessman and his guns were made starting about 1879, but in 1890 he sold out to Francis Bannerman, the big surplus dealer, who continued to make them under the Bannerman name until about 1910.
This classic old shotgun is one of the key historic arms for collectors of American sporting arms, and many are still enjoyed by shooters today. (We sell all guns as collector items only and they must be approved by a competent gunsmith before firing.) With a little refinishing on the stock and a new buttplate this will be a much nicer looking gun. C&R FFL okay for this one. Sorry, we can not accept credit card payment for this item. $575.00 (View Picture)
