Important information about ordering firearms from us!
If you see a firearm that you want, let us know and we will hold it for you. Firearms manufactured after 1898 can only be shipped to someone with a Federal Firearms License (FFL). The Federal Firearms License holder will have you fill out a 4473 form ("yellow sheet") to conduct the required federal "Permanent Brady" instant background check, and any other paperwork required in your area before allowing you to take possession. FFL holders often charge a small fee for handling these transfers, as well as any state or federal fees for the background check. If you don't know of any FFL holders in your area, we can provide a list of local FFL holders who may be willing to handle transfers. All firearms are sold as collectors items only. We warrant them to be as described, and make no claims as to fitness for use. Have them checked by a competent gunsmith prior to firing. We assume no liability for accidents or injuries resulting from firing of any firearm we sell. By ordering from this listing, you certify that you understand and agree to these terms.

Bargain Items

**NEW ADDITION** 15933 U.S. NAVY 20mm AMMO CAN MK 1 MOD 0 FOR .30-06 BALL IN 8 ROUND CLIPS & BANDOLEERS - A great addition to any Navy or Marine or .30-06 collection. The U.S. Navy did not like the old wooden M1917 crates used by the army for ammo storage due to the wood being a fire hazard aboard ship and subject to damage as the crates were passed up and down several decks for storage in magazines, and the lack of a good way to secure them in place. The metal 20mm cans Mark 1 Mod 0 were ideal for shipboard use, and much of the Navy’s inventory of small arms ammunition was repacked in them at various Naval Ammunition Depots in the early 1950s. This can is unusual in that it retains the original heavy cardboard inner liner from when it was repacked at NAD Crane, Indiana in May 1951. The external markings show it was filled with 33 bandoleers of 48 rounds f .30 Ball M2, in M1 Garand clips, total of 1584 rounds. Ammunition lot number SL-C- 81181-C. About 90% external gay paint remains with good stencil markings on one end and one side and on the lid with matching lot number. Some surface rust and assorted dirt. What you see is what you get. (We may still have one of the full bandoleers that came out of this can and purchased with the can the price for 1 bandoleer will be $50.00 in addition to price of the can.) $30.00 (View Picture)

**NEW ADDITION** 20043 BARGAIN BOOKS- Good books to add to your education at bargain blow out prices. - Some single titles and some groups. (Mark Twain said that “the man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.” Don’t you be THAT guy!)

20043A- The Path Between the Seas The Creation of the Panama Canal 1870-1914 by David McCulloch. 699 pages 6” x 9” softcover. OUTSTANDING BOOK! Superbly researched and well written, very readable. The concept of a canal across the narrow Panama isthmus, only about 55 miles wide, seemed logical and was naively assumed to be as simple as getting a much of guys with shovels and start digging. But, it took over 40 years to come up with a workable plan and execute it. Much of the Work involved solving the problem of yellow fever plaguing workers, and treating not as much a “digging” operation” as a “transportation” operation and the design and engineering of massive locks which worked tirelessly for a century. If you are going to go on a cruise and pass through the canal, this book is a MUST read. Probably even more so if it will be on a comfy cruise ship with a well stocked bar and attentive staff to attend to your needs. I thoroughly enjoyed it even though my cruise was on a gray ship and I was part of the crew slaving away to make good things happen. $8.00 (View Picture)

20043B- American Road The Story of an Epic Transcontinental Journey as the Dawn of the Motor Age by Pete Davies. 274 pages 6” x 9.5” hardbound with good dustjacket. Excellent except former owner’s name and address inked on flyleaf. Interesting account of the trials and tribulations of the 1919 U.S. Army expedition which included then Lt. Col. Dwight D. Eisenhower to explore the possibility of a road convoy from Washington, DC, to San Francisco, much of it along what is now known as the Lincoln Highway. Some paved, some just graded dirt, many miles little changed from wagon train trails and sometimes morasses of mud. It makes you appreciate the Interstate Highway system later implemented during Eisenhower’s presidency. $5.00 (View Picture)

20043C- The Brownsville Raid: “The book that prompted congressional action to rectify a U.S. president’s shocking act of racism.” By John D. Weaver. 324 pages 5.5” x 8.5 soft cover. This covers a 1906 incident when an altercation in the town of Brownsville, Texas escalated to gunfire and a sheriff and bartender were killed. Black troops from the 25th Infantry assigned to Fort Brown on one side of town were blamed and an investigation which was either poorly done or intentionally misdirected so that the black troops were blamed. Subsequent ballistics investigations (one of the earliest) cleared the soldiers of the 25th, but President Teddy Roosevelt was outraged that the perpetrators were not identified and basically fired all 279 troops with dishonorable discharges. Later investigations showed that some white citizens were probably the culprits and eventually in 1970 Congress changed the discharges to honorable. $5.00 (View Picture)

20043D- Barbary General: The Life of William H. Eaton “The amazing account of a flamboyant hero who was really America’s ‘Lawrence of Arabil’” by Samuel Edwards. 277 pages 6” x 9” hardbound with dustjacket. Ex-library copy, otherwise about good. $5.00 (View Picture)

20043E- The Man Who Broke Napoleon’s Codes, The True story of a forgotten hero in Wellington’s Army. By Mark Urban, 345 pages 6” x 9” softcover.

20043G- Team of Teams by Gen. Stanley McChrystal “New rules of engagement for a complex world” basically expediting the information sharing and decision making process based on his experiences running special operations forces in Afghanistan. Recognized as an outstanding book by management consultants. Basically this explains how to “get inside the other guy’s OODA loop” which is a huge factor in success. $5.00 (View Picture)

20043H- John Adams by David McCulloch 751 pages 6” x 9” soft cover. Near new condition. Superb biography by one of our best historians. Sadly, too few people today have any understanding of the founders of our nation, other than politically correct crap that “they were racist, sexist old white guys.” $5.00 (View Picture)

Interesting contemporary account of travelers and what they find in the then still wild and wooly west. Sadly, the “Original map based on latest U.S. government survey” has been removed leaving only a small corner.
3- The Remarkable History of the Hudson’s Bay Company By George Bryce, 3rd edition, 1910, 503 pages 6” x 9” hardbound.

Excellent condition. An amazing number of incidents are noted, along with photos of most as this book covers the era when photography was common. Going to sea was, and still is, a potentially dangerous profession.
3- Last of the Square Rigged Ships by J. Ferrell Colton 287 pages 6.5” x 9” hardbound published in 1937. Basically a listing of square rigged ships remaining in service or preserved as of that date. An effort to capture data, photos and history of the rapidly dwindling number of sailing ships made obsolete by steamships. Fair condition but the binding and covers are hanging on by a few threads.

5- Conqueror of the Seas: The Story of Magellan By Stefan Zweig, 335 pages 6” x 9” hardbound with fair dustjacket. Magellan (1480-1521) was more or less the first to circumnavigate the globe. He was a noted sailor-explorer to the East Indies and later around Africa to Malaysia. He is best known for his exploration of South American waters, including passing through the straits which now bear his name. He continued into the Pacific as far as the Philippines where he was killed by the natives, thus technically falling short of a compete circumnavigation, but the rest of his expedition continued home to Portugal to win the honors for first to do so.

Solid historical research and well written to be readable story of this remarkable man’s life and accomplishments. Much of this is in the context of the struggle between England and Spain for world empire, and the author’s academic career in Spanish language and historical archives makes this probably the best account ever of the legendary English seaman. (3) JUAN PEREZ ON THE NORTHWEST COAST: SIX DOCUMENTS OF HIS EXPEDITION IN 1774. By Herbert K. Beals. 270 pages 6” x 10” hardbound with excellent dustjacke.

**NEW ADDITION** 17089 U.S. 75mm Brass cartridge case for Sherman tank, etc - Standard 75mm gun case (75 x 350mm Rimmed). Someone made a lamp out of this one by brazing(?) it onto a steel flange of some sort. You could cut and grind away the brazed clumps of metal and cleaning up the rim if you wanted to use it as a case by itself, but it sure is a nice solid base as is. Heastamp include 75m/m G LOT 1054 SCOVILLE. Hole in side of case as shown in the photo. CHEAP! $25.00 (View Picture)

16583 CARTRIDGE RIFLE AND CARBINE BARREL BONANZA! TREASURES, GOOD - STUFF, CHEAP TREASURES & JUNQUE - Here are some barrels from our project pile that we just don’t have time to mess with. CHEAP stuff for you to fiddle with and conjure up all sorts of neat stuff!
16583A- WINCHESTER MODEL 52B STANDARD WEIGHT TARGET BARREL- Excellent condition inside and out with about 97% original blue finish and bore looks about perfect. Just a bit of wear mostly around the muzzle. Crisp markings and “39” on bottom indicates it was made in 1939 for a Model 52B, but it should fit any of the Model 52 series rifles. This has factory drilled and tapped holes for target scope blocks on 7.2” centers and the integral front sight base. Perfect for restoration of a rifle which someone customized or has a worn barrel. Or, it could be the basis for turning down to a 52 Sporter configuration. A really nice barrel for someone with a specific need for only $175.00 (View Picture)
16583D- M1903A3 BARREL- TWO GROOVE- CHEAP! This is a mint unissued replacement barrel with perfect two groove bore. Made by Remington in December 1943. However, it was installed in a M1903A3 action and during final chamber reaming they made a couple extra turns so the chamber is just a tiny bit deeper than it should be. So, this is being sold as a “project” barrel that can be set back an extra turn with a little lathe work, or rethreaded and cut from 24” to a shorter length for all sorts of neat projects. They used to modify M1903 barrel for use in Krags all the time, so maybe you want to do that. It’s cheap and someone can use it, but not me. $50.00 (View Picture)

16885 BARGAIN U.S. M1892 KRAG BAYONET & SCABBARD - Used with all the Krag rifles 1892-1898 models. The bayonet is dated 1900 and is VG-fine condition except it has been sharpened during its period of use, and there is a small rectangle of wood chiseled out on the left grip, probably where a “9 NY” unit marking once was. A few spots of stain or light pitting on the blade and a small rust spot on both side of the crossguard, but overall still a very nice representative example. The scabbard is the 1896 style with the slender hook which was to fit into one of the cartridge loops on a Mills belt. This is the second type that had a small pin to limit the rotation but the pin is missing and the hook is wobbly. The metal throat piece is missing from the top of the scabbard so when the blade is fully inserted it is about 1/16” short of being fully seated. Instead of looking at the less than stellar scabbard, look at the cheap price $125.00 (View Picture)

16882 CIVIL WAR ERA BRITISH .577 ENFIELD BAYONET- CHEAP! - This was the loser in a beauty contest, but still should clean up to be a cheap representative example of the bayonet used by both north and south during the Civil War. Someone aggressively filed the triangular blade to sharpen the three edges and in the process removed the markings usually found on the face of the blade. Later negligence allowed it to get rusty, but get your file and sandpaper out and clean it up. CHEAP! $49.00 (View Picture)

21619 U.S. M1903/1903A3 TWOFER TIRED STOCK BARGAIN LOT RESTORATION PROJECTS - Problem children to be sure, but CHEAP! and restorable. See photos for details. A- Pretty decent M1903A3 stock except for some chips on the left side of the butt and a crack from the back of the receiver tang inletting and rear of trigger guard back about 7-8 inches to the right side of the butt. This is an open crack which has not been “fixed” yet and if spread to allow some epoxy should be take care of that. Easily repaired crack about 5” long at the tip of the stock. Faint FJA cartouche and good O.G. in box rework cartouche and P on the wrist. B- Early M1903 Modified stock (lacking the inletting for the M1903A3 handguard ring) with legible RLB cartouche. This had a crack on the right side from the receiver tang area back into the wrist and had a poor glue and screw repair job. It seems reasonably solid and if cleaned up and refinish would probably be okay for living history use, but not a great collector prize. BOTH of these stocks to take a place on your workbench, gun rack or firewood pile for the bargain price of $69.00 (View Picture)

17442 LOT OF TWO BUTTPLATES FOR SPRINGFIELD MUSKETS-TRAPDOORS- OR SIMILAR - In the 1870s-80s the Army stripped tens of thousands of Civil War muskets to recycle the buttplates, trigger guards, lock parts and some other small parts for the Trapdoor rifles being build, helping reduce the cost. The excess parts were sold off as scrap and Bannerman and his ilk quickly cobbled together guns they could sell, sometimes cheap shotguns, others as “cadet” or “Quaker” guns, and some into crude but shootable muskets or trapdoors. They had foundaries cast up buttplates and trigger guards and other parts as needed for these projects. Certainly not original Springfield Armory quality, but more or less serviceable although sometimes needing a bit of fitting on wood or metal to get everything to fit. These are two Bannerman style buttplates perfect for use to assemble a cheap wall hanger or parade gun, or reenactor gun and not damage a valuable original part. Very similar to buttplates on some Remington rolling blocks as well. CHEAP! BOTH for only $20.00 (View Picture)

19971 U.S. WW2 STYLE M1 HELMETS “STEEL POTS” - We found a bunch of these. All are probably post WW2 manufacture and most have the sort of lime green paint instead of the WW2 OD shade. But, most have lots of scrapes and chips in the paint and really should be repainted with OD paint and a bit of sawdust thrown in for texture. What you see is what you get. No cracks or serious dents unless noted in the description, but there may be minor imperfections which would not make them unserviceable. All have the flexible bails for the chinstraps, but no chinstraps included unless shown in the photos. Shipping cost will be the same for one or two helmets so order an extra and reduce the unit cost a bit.

19971A- Pretty nice shape with more of OD paint color and very thin texturing. A few very minor dents on the crown and the usual scrapes and ships to the paint. $35.00 (View Picture)

19971B- Usual scrapes and ships in the paint otherwise pretty nice. $35.00 (View Picture)

19971C- This one has an extra coat of paint and very heavy texturing with some large areas of scraping and chipping $30.00 (View Picture)

19971D- This one has an extra coat of paint and very heavy texturing with some large areas of scraping and chipping Has late style “clip on” chinstraps. $35.00 (View Picture)

19971E- SPECIAL “TWOFER BARGAIN CRACKED POT DEAL”- Both of these have stress cracks running vertically at the back of the helmet. One has two large cracks, the other has 5 smaller cracks. Probably not the best protection in combat, but CHEAP so you can use them when you will be using a helmet cover, or lay around as battlefield debris, or put in a military vehicle, etc. Did I mention these were cheap? BOTH for only $15.00 (View Picture)

19971F- Pretty nice shape with more of WW2 OD paint color and very thin texturing on the outside but later lighter lime green inside. A few very minor dents on the crown and the usual scrapes and ships to the paint. $35.00 (View Picture)

17091 U.S. WW2-VIETNAM WEB GEAR BARGAIN LOT - What you see is what you get. One WW2 era canteen cover, pretty decent except the curly wire hook for attaching to the belt has been removed. One well worn M1956 canteen cover and waist belt both somewhat faded. One mint WW2 shoulder pad for web straps and one mint pair of M1956 suspenders (size regular). The whole lot will all fit in a flat rate shipping box for $13.50 but that is in addition to the bargain price for this whole pile of web happiness. $30.00 (View Picture)

17828 LOT OF WINCHESTER PAPER STUFF - From the estate of a past President of the Winchester Arms Collectors Association. What you see is what you get. Calendars, catalogs, etc from the company itself and WACA. WACA calendars for 1981, 82, 83, 84 and two for 1988. Wall hanging flip chart “Sportman’s Game Guide” circa 1980s. Catalogs 1981 and 1984. Three shotgun catalogs and 1894 10th year brochure. Two blank Winchester company Christmas cards with envelopes, and several pages on Winchester reloading tools which was the cut and paste version used as a master, I think. Neat stuff for a Winchester collector, and someone can use these. $20.00 (View Picture)

22630 U.S. RIFLE 7.62mm M14 RECEIVER CHUNKS - Your tax dollars at work, tens (or hundreds) of thousands of M14 rifles were fed to “Captain Crunch” to bust them up into small chunks of scrap metal to prevent their possible purchase or use by his imperial majesty’s subjects during the Clinton regime. Most of the resulting scrap then ended up being recycled into steel for sale on the open market. A few of the scrapped receivers ended up as recognizable chunks and we got these to satisfy the collector who desperately needs a real U.S. military M14 rifle for their collection. Fortunately, these are no longer considered firearms and no license or permits are needed for purchase. What you see in the photos is what you get. We have several as listed below. Order by item number 22630 and the serial number except for the set of four where we only need “set of 4”.

22630A- Set of four M14 receivers, one from each of the makers. 1- Harrington & Richardson serial number 273876 2- Springfield Armory serial number 111426 3- TRW (Thompson Ramo Wooldridge) serial number 640214 4- Winchester serial number 38742 Price for the lot of four- $95.00 (View Picture)

21529 SNIPING: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY - By Pat Farey and Mark Spicer. 256 pages oversize 9” x 12” with dustjacket. A good general introduction to the topic covering history and equipment from all nations, not just one side or the other. Most of the numerous photos are in color and many of the WW2 and earlier photos are of well informed reenactors who value attention to detail. Good history and a coffee table book as well. $12.00 (View Picture)

21617 1stEdition- BLUE BOK OF ANTIQUE AMERICAN FIREARMS AND VALUES - By S.P. Fjestad and John B. Allen, 2016, 400 pages soft cover. I wanted to like this book and hoped it would be a worthy successor to Flayderman’s Guide to Antique American Firearms and Their Values, which was last updated in 2007. However, it is not even close and I glanced through it after purchase and decided that it was not worth a place in my library. It is not clear what the scope of the book is, but it seems to be almost entirely pre-1898 with some overlap for models made both pre and post 1898. Flayderman covered collectible American arms basically 1940 and earlier. The “regular” blue book includes post-1898 arms, so perhaps that justifies the cutoff date. It’s big feature is lots of pretty color photos, mainly from auction catalogs, and as with the Blue Book tradition a “photo percentage grading system” that is informative. However, the book is organized strictly alphabetically by maker, not by major maker or type of firearm as was the case with Flayderman. Thus, someone interested in U.S. martial arms has to know the names of all the possible contract makers of 1816 muskets to find them all listed individually, instead of as a family in one spot. Even then, this book has chosen to list Springfield Armory Model 1892-1899 Krag rifles and carbines under a “Krag-Jorgenson” section instead of Springfield Armory. The historical information on each gun is scant at best, lacking such essentials as total made. There is a serious lack of information on how to distinguish one model or variant from another. The Krag section has about 15 column inches of text (in large type) and nearly as much space to pretty pictures with little explanatory information. The values listed are way off from what I have experienced buying and selling in the last 2-3 years. Flayderman devoted four entire pages to Krags, and is overall 800 pages, twice the size of this book. Some items are listed in this Blue Book more than once, with vastly different values, which is inexplicable. The values listed reportedly are based on auction results, and vary from what I have observed in the marketplace. Sometimes auction results are badly skewed by two rabid bidders or the absence of anyone interested in a certain type of gun at that location on that date. Values are always a very subjective topic, and do fluctuate up and down based on selling venue and time and other variables. I believe Flayderman ran his values by a number of specialist experts for each of the sections in his books, and the consensus seems to be that the pretty much got them right. I get the feeling that this was more of a one man effort, a nearly impossible task given the scope of the arms covered. Overall, I find this book to be nearly useless as a result of poor organization, the decision to provide so severely limited information on each item, and the dubious credibility of the prices compared to the real collectors’ marketplace. However, if you want to look up a number this book will suffice, but in my opinion it is only useful for those who are satisfied by “price of everything and value of nothing.” I do not have room for this in my gun library, and strongly recommend others to find and cherish the last (9th edition) of Flayderman’s Guide to Antique American Firearms and Their Values for the exceptionally valuable and accurate detailed information contained in it, and its ease of use. If you cannot get the 9th, then any of the last several editions will suffice, as the value information will become less relevant over time, but the historical information (so severely lacking in the Blue Book) is essential for an informed collector, while pricing information alone may satisfy those to whom firearms are merely commodities with price tags on them to be traded for profit. Price for this practically unused copy which retails for $39.95 is only $15.00 (View Picture)

22051 BAYONET SCABBARDS OF ALL KINDS -

22051D- TWO U.S. MODEL 1885 SCABBARDS FOR .45-70 TRAPDOORS One is rough condition with the steel body crusty rusty but overall dark and untouched. The leather loop is partially torn as show in the photos. Slap some epoxy on there and it will look okay. Second is the steel body only. These were secured to the leather frog with a rivet, and part of the tab holding the rivet has been broken off. Epoxy will do an even better job. Has old black paint finish over patina, not bad, not great. BOTH for only $35.00 (View Picture)

22051E- WW2 GERMAN KAR 98k BAYONET SCABBARD AND FROG- Scabbard body is good, free from dents with old coat of greenish-khaki paint. Frog is a bit worn with some torn stitching and one rivet missing. $35.00 (View Picture)

22051F- BRITISH PATTERN 1907 BAYONET SCABBARD- EARLY WW1 This is the early type with the tear drop shaped frog stud and arched shape on the throat and tip pieces. The black leather body has a nice smooth surface and waxed finish, with one scar and assorted minor scuffs, but pretty nice. The throat has traces of blue finish mixed with mostly patina and surface rust while the tip is mostly rusty, but these could be cleaned up and touched up with black paint as was the British practice. A good serviceable piece. $50.00 (View Picture)

22051G- BRITISH PATTERN 1907 BAYONET SCABBARD- EARLY WW1 This is the early type with the tear drop shaped frog stud and arched shape on the throat and tip pieces. The black leather body has a rough textured surface dyed black, and covered with yucky grease. The throat and tip pieces are mostly smooth with most of an old black paint finish but chipped and worn. A good serviceable piece. $45.00 (View Picture)

22051H- Lot of 2 Camillus Leather scabbards
What you see is what you get. I think these are only 10-20 years old, but will fit anything with the knife blade of the M3 trench knife or the M4, M5, M6, M7 bayonet family. Both for only $25.00 (View Picture)

22051J- WIRE CUTTER SCABBARD FOR EICKHORN KCB-77 LONG BLADE- Scabbard is in excellent plus condition, and I don’t remember where this came from. Someone needs this, and it is yours for only $25 plus shipping. (View Picture)

22051K- BRITISH PATTERN 1907 BAYONET SCABBARD- LATE WW1-WW2 This is the later type with the round frog stud and squared shape on the throat and tip pieces. The black leather body has a rough textured surface dyed black, and covered with yucky grease. The throat and tip pieces are mostly smooth with most of an old black paint finish but chipped and worn. A good serviceable piece. $45.00 (View Picture)

22051L-s BRITISH PATTERN 1907 BAYONET SCABBARD- LATE WW1- This was made by Enfield as indicated by the EFD on the back of the body. It has the later type round frog stud and early rounded top on the tip and late square cut on the throat piece. The tip and throat have been scoured bright. The black leather body is in VG condition with a few assorted scrapes or dings. A good serviceable piece. $45.00 (View Picture)

18682 .35 REMINGTON BRASS CASES - Some of the reloading material from an estate we got: .35 Remington cases, fired, deprimed and resized. Remington or Winchester brand, mixed. We have the following A- Bag of 60 cases- $40.00 B- Bag of 60 cases- $40.00 C- Bag of 92 cases- $55.00 (View Picture)

21429 9mm LUGER (9x19mm) LOT OF ABOUT 2,900 FIRED CASES- MIX OF RAW AND DEPRIMED - These are from a local estate which had a large amount of ammo. The owner was a shooter and reloader and liked to keep his ammo neatly packed in factory type 50 round boxes. We have a lot of these and want to blow them out in a single deal. About 2,000 have been deprimed, and the other 900 are raw, with nothing dine since firing. Usually the 50 round box will have all the same headstamps although not necessarily related to who made the box itself. Overall there are a mix of many different makers and headstamps. We will leave them in the boxes if you like, or will dump them all into a single large box for shipping which will reduce shipping cost. Priced at about 2 cents each. (Sorry, no photos on these.) $55.00

21252 9mm LUGER (9x19mm) LOT OF 2,500+ FIRED CASES- RESIZED AND PRIMED - These are from a local estate which had a large amount of ammo. The owner was a shooter and reloader and liked to keep his ammo neatly packed in factory type 50 round boxes. We have a lot of these and want to blow them out in a single deal. Usually the 50 round box will have all the same headstamps although not necessarily related to who made the box itself. Overall there are a mix of many different makers and headstamps. We will leave them in the boxes if you like, or will dump them all into a single large box for shipping which will reduce shipping cost. Priced at about 4 cents each (Sorry, no photos on these.) $100.00

21625 WW2 .30-06 TRACER AMMUNITION- BARGAIN LOTS! - These are original U.S. military boxes of “20 CARTRIDGES, TRACER, CALIBER .30 M1” from an estate we purchased. These boxes are ones that had the top opened and/or the tips of the bullets are poking through the bottom of the box. We would call these grade 3 for a collector due to box condition, but ammo looks nice and clean. The boxes are a bit rough for use for display purposes as single boxes, but fine if you need some to fill up a wooden crate, or want to belt/link some up for display or firing use in one of the .30 caliber machines guns. Sometimes you can cut a new piece of cardboard to cover the bottom of the box and when shrink wrapped will display okay, but we don’t have time to mess with that. The boxes we checked have either Twin Cities (TW) or Denver (DEN) headstamps and markings on the box, with 42 or 43 dates. There may be a few stray boxes with other makers or dates in the pile, but we will just pull them out of the crate and you get the five boxes off the top. If requested, we will try (but not guarantee) to get all boxes from the same maker if that is important to you. Red tips on all, ranging from very opaque red to a very thin red, reflecting normal variation in quality of markings at the makers. SPECIAL BARGAIN DEAL- LOT OF FIVE BOXES (100 rounds total) ORIGINAL WW2 .30-06 TRACER AMMO IN BOXES for only $100.00 (View Picture)

20427 U.S. M1903A3 STOCK- CHEAP! - Good solid stock for a Remington M1903A3 with light ordnance wheel FJA cartouche and circle P. Will fit any of the M1903A3 rifles and also the M1903s by Springfield or Rock Island. Assorted dents and dings, nothing major, but Bubba did use this on a rifle with a receiver micrometer sight added and therefore cut a small clearance cut for the sight on the right side, along with a small notch for the bolt handle. A hit for a collector piece, but totally irrelevant if you just want to use it on a shooter. Or, you can even off Bubba’s beaver gnawing and fill it with a bit of scrap walnut and epoxy and file it to shape and it will be much less noticeable and fine for living history use or less embarrassing on the range. Heck, we will even toss in a piece of scrap walnut for the project- IF you ask when you order. Much better than a repro stock and ready to use. Cheap at only $95.00 (View Picture)

20131 U.S. CANTEEN COLLECTION- LOT OF FIVE! - What you see is what you get. A- WW1 canteen and cover. Canteen unmarked but definitely WW1 era with aluminum top which is firmly stuck in place. Cover markings illegible and dirty stained. B- WW2 set of canteen dated 1942 with assorted dents; early war cup dated 1942 with sharp edges and tin/zinc plating which was withdrawn from use and hard to find, in above average condition for this scarce piece of kit. Cover unmarked VG condition. C- Vietnam era M1956 plastic canteen dated 1963, and cotton web cover with illegible markings. Nice early Vietnam era set. D- Gulf War set with 1976 dated plastic canteen, nylon cover with 1988 date, very nice 1944 dated cup (yeah, if 40 year old stuff was serviceable they still issued it) and one of the neat little stoves that slips over the cup for storage, but makes and efficient burner with heat tabs, in about new condition. E- Arctic canteen, cup and cover set, used excellent. Introduced in the 1950s and in service for about 50 years for use in cold climates. EVERYTHING YOU SEE IN THE PHOTO for only $99.00 (View Picture)

23063 BIG BORE CASES/CARTRIDGES FOR DECORATION, SPECIAL PROJECTS, PAPERWEIGHTS, CREMATION URNS, ETC -
23063B- WW2 U.S. NAVY 3”/50 BRASS CASE CUT TO 18” length (76.2 x 460mmR) Very nice case, just cut down in length. It is slightly shorter than the usual cases modified for use as blank/saluting/clearing charge use, but so well done we are not sure if it is an arsenal job or not. Great for wind chimes or art project or even a burial urn. INERT- no flammable or explosive components. $55.00 (View Picture)

23063C- WW1 FRENCH 105mm FIELD GUN BRASS CARTRIDGE CASE (105 x 390mmR) About 15.5” tall, this is the 105mm Schneider case for the Model 1913 105mm field guns used by France, but identical cases with different markings were used by Belgium, Austria, Norway and Poland (and probably by their opponents when captured). This one is dated May 1918 and except for the last two inches at the mouth is in pretty nice shape. However, the mouth is heavily corroded and has several age splits. A good relic of trench warfare, or trim it down for wind chimes or flower pot, or whatever you like. INERT- no flammable or explosive components. $49.00 (View Picture)

23063D- U.S. VIETNAM ERA 105mm HOWITZER CASES FROM AC-130 GUNSHIPS Have several so exact markings will vary by date and details and most or none of the black stencil markings may remain. These were obtained by a source in Florida near where the AC-130s are based. They had started to clean them up by buffing, but never finished the job. The cases have some assorted dents and dings near the mouth but nothing major, just not perfect. There is also some corrosion on the inside and out of the mouth of the case, so we call these grade two and price them accordingly. Fired primer may be intact or drilled out. Note that the USAF cases had a rolled crimp at the mouth to hold the projectile in place with a set charge, unlike the ground artillery where the projectile was a loose fit to allow pulling of some increments of the powder charge if desired. INERT- no flammable or explosive components. Price for one case similar to the one in the photo is $45.00 (View Picture)

21640 U.S. M1873 TRAPDOOR CADET BAYONET- Cheap! - (Reilly B129) with the 16 inch blade with thinner profile than the standard 18 inch Infantry bayonet. These were issued with the cadet rifles and if you have a cadet rifle, you need one of these. Originally there was a special short scabbard made for these, but after the first few years they just made one size and issued the standard 18 inch scabbard to cadets. Condition is not the best, even though about 20-25% of the original bright blue finish remains. About 50% is surface rust which might clean off leaving a dull blue black surface, but the other 25% is heavier rust or even light pitting and rust, especially on the shank and near the tip. A carful cleaning will make it look much better and an aggressive cleaning an refinish would not hurt. Pretty scarce, but condition makes it cheap. $50.00 (View Picture)

10588 U.S. MODEL 1917 ENFIELD UPPER HANDGUARDS (SUPER CHEAP WHOLESALE LOT!) - This is from a stash that was surplused out of Ogden Arsenal decades ago after they no longer needed them for overhaul of M1917 rifles. Brand new, U.S. GI surplus, never on a gun. Looks like most are varying shades of walnut, but a fewmay be one of the other species they used during WW1. None of these seem to have E/R/W markings so these may have been from a later contract. We have used dozens of these over the years, and some require a bit of hand fitting with a file or sandpaper, but are exactly how they came out of surplus. We have these listed elsewhere in lots of 10 for $25.00, but for the guy who wants to stock up and sell on eBay or at gun shows we will sell a bargain lot of 100 for only $150.00 (View Picture)

21627 U.S. MODEL 1922, M1922M1 or M2 .22 CALIBER RIFLE STOCK (Service type) - Bubba deserves a special spot at the head of the line when Hillary starts grabbing our guns. He took a nearly perfect M1922 rifle stock and decided to put his .30-06 M1903 rifle into it, which is not a serious sin, but he insisted on glass bedding it, and of course had bent the bolt handle so he had to make a notch for that. And, with a scope on the rifle, he decided to add a sniper cheek pad which left two screw holes along the lower right edge of the butt. The screw holes are no big deal, easily filled, and the glass bedding can be routed out a bit so you can glass bed your rifle into this stock. The notch for the bent bolt is not too bad and can be filled and the stock refinished to blend it in, or maybe you have a rifle with a bent bolt and this will avoid boogering up a good stock. Great SA over R rebuild cartouche on left side of the butt. While not perfect, this can be salvaged and any of the M1922 stocks are nearly impossible to find. This can be used on a .30 caliber M1903 rifle if you like, but lacks the stock bolts used on most military M1903 stocks. This will fit any of the M1922 series .22 caliber Springfield rifles- the original M1922, the M1922M1 and the late M2 rifles. $125.00 (View Picture)

16580 U.S. MODEL 1917 ENFIELD BAYONET- CHEAP! - At first glance this is a typical M1917 bayonet in about excellent condition. It is one that was made for the British as a Pattern 1913 for the Pattern 1914 rifles with British inspector marks. However, before it was delivered to the British, the U.S. entered WW1 and this had the old makings marked out and U.S. added. However, some of the British markings seemed to be missing, so we checked really closely and discovered that the blade is actually an inch shorter than it should be, with evidence of being welded where the markings were funky. So, this is not a first class collectible, but for a lot of people, either looking for a cheaper filler, or something fu living history/reenactor use, it should do just fine, and you can pocket the savings. $75.00 (View Picture)

19640 MUZZLE LOADER BARREL BONANZA! CHEAP TREASURES & JUNQUE - Here are some barrels from our project pile that we just don’t have time to mess with. CHEAP stuff for you to fiddle with and conjure up all sorts of neat wall hangers, reenactor “Confederate” guns, or whatever your fertile imagine dreams up.

19640I- U.S. Model 1816 .69 caliber smoothbore musket barrel- full length (42”), converted to percussion using the nipple in the barrel system.  Outside mostly smooth brown patina with usual pitting around the nipple area.  Nipple broken off.  Breechplug has been removed and is just finger tight, with good threads.  The bore is sewer pipe, with the heaviest build up at the breech.  Probably an accumulation of powder residue induced rust , mud dauber’s crap, more rust and dirt.  A bit of scraping with a rat tail file nibbled away at some, but I don’t think it will every clean to be shootable, although it will clean okay on the outside.   Good for restoring a less than pristine M1816 to flint again, or building up a living history/reenactor/tourist gun.  $35.00 (View Picture)

19640J- U.S. Model 1816 .69 caliber smoothbore musket barrel, shortened by 1 inch at the muzzle to 41” length. Converted to percussion using the drum method, and adapted for fowler use. One spot where a barrel wedge was installed at some point, and two ramrod thimbles soldered on. Overall heavy brown patina over light pitting with heavier pitting around the nipple area. Very faint traces of US over a sunken type proofmark on left shoulder of barrel. Bore dark and rusty. $50.00 (View Picture)

19640K- GOOD ONE!- U.S. .69 caliber smoothbore musket barrel from HARPERS FERRY musket made 1814-1815. (Officially Model 17905 type IV- Flayderman 9A-017), Converted to percussion by drum method. Good proof marks. Bore is generally good, but some pitted areas so definitely not a potential shooter. Exterior is mostly smooth brown patina mixed with some steel gray. Still full length (42 inches). The bayonet stud is missing but you can see where it was. The early Harpers Ferry muskets are usually in trashy condition, and this will allow restoration of one that has been cut down. $125.00 (View Picture)

7162 WW2 40 MM BOFORS BRASS SHELL CASINGS- lot of four - Standard 40 x 311mmR type for the ubiquitous 40mm Bofors /L60 AA guns used by nearly every nation during WW2. Left to right: 1- USN, Mark 2, December 1943 dated 2- USN, Mark 2, January 1944 dated 3- U.A. Army M25, 1944 dated 4- USN Mark 2, June 1945 dated All are fired VG-fine with minor dings around the case mouth, but should clean up okay. Your choice $35 each or take all four for only $110.00 (View Picture)

15958 KRAG CLEANING ROD & OILER-- - Three rod sections are all the same, when technically one should be a “tip” section with a small slot for a cleaning patch instead of female threads at the fat end. The other two (all 3 in this case) are threaded male at one end and female at the other end to be screwed together. In practice, mismatched sets like this were probably common in the field. Price reflects a healthy discount from a totally correct set. $55.00 (View Picture)

SMA2514 Magazine Walther Banner P.38 - This is a modern production magazine for P.38 and P.1 pistols. Quality and condition are excellent. $25.00 (View Picture)

SMA2655 Vintage Jay-Pee Spring Lock Safety Holster - Jay-Pee produced the Audley design after Audley went out of business. Holster is for a 4 inch .38 or .357 revolver. Holster is in good condition with a slight tear on the back of the belt loop that could be repaired. $15.00 (View Picture)

19964 M1 GARAND WALNUT BUTTSTOCKS- LOT OF 2- - What you see is what you get. Two U.S. GI walnut buttstocks in good serviceable condition. Toe area is worn a bit on one, but otherwise okay for use, but not top quality collector wood. One has a circle P on the grip, but no other cartouches visible. Good for building up into a shooter, or living history gun, or something you can use to keep the good stock from an otherwise lackluster rifle. Stripped, no hardware. BOTH FOR ONLY $85.00 (View Picture)

19963 M1 GARAND BUTTSTOCK- GRADE 3 - What you see is what you get. One birch stock with an epoxy repair near the toe.  Well used, not a great prize, but okay for drill rifles, or for putting on a low grade rifle as a loaner for living history or something like that, or making dummy rifles for use in a vehicle or barracks display. No cartouches or metal Cheap at only  $20.00 (View Picture)

7878 M1 GARAND STOCK SET (Buttstock and front and rear handguards)- CHEAP - What you see is what you get. These have a sloppy coat of reddish varnish type finish on them. Pretty sure the butt is Korean made from mahogany type wood, while the handguards are U.S. made, probably walnut. Small crack to the rear of the clip on the rear handguard, otherwise everything is sound. With some stripping and refinishing these would be good to put on a shooter or living history rifle so you can save a good stock set. CHEAP- $95.00 (View Picture)

17556 M1903 SPRINGFIELD STOCKS- LOT OF 2 CUT DOWN- CHEAP - A- One very nice “scant” type for M1903 or M1903A3, cut just ahead of the lower band, so it would be easy to “stretch” with a new forend section, or fine for use as a sporter/shooter. Some assorted scratches and dings, but not sanded and a good solid stock. B- One fairly trashy M1903 Springfield “finger groove” stock cut at the lower band. Dark, sanded, oil soaked, small crack through the trigger and receiver tang area. Will burn well in a fireplace, or could be degreased and “stretched” for use on a drill or reenactor rifle. What you see is what you get- both stocks for only $45.00 (View Picture)

19640J- U.S. Model 1816 .69 caliber smoothbore musket barrel, shortened by 1 inch at the muzzle to 41” length.  Converted to percussion using the drum method, and adapted for fowler use.  One spot where a barrel wedge was installed at some point, and two ramrod thimbles soldered on.  Overall heavy brown patina over light pitting with heavier pitting around the nipple area.

7984 U.S. GI COMBAT BOOTS SIZE 10R- (MEDIUM WIDTH) - Used but servicable, and great for a display where you need boots. Well used but typical of a combat unit, not a barracks spit shine inspection pair. Have several pairs, and most seem to be dated 1980, but except for increasingly deep tread pattern of the rubber soles, the basic boot style has not changed since about 1960. Also nice gift for your beloved ex-Mother-in-law. $12.00 (View Picture)

19374 DEMBART CHECKERING TOOLS- LARGE LOT - This includes a three tool set for 16, 18, 20 and 24 lines per inch, along with two each skip line tools in 10 and 12 lines per inch, and a wide border tool and narrow border tool. Also included are four other tools which I am not sure about the exact designation, making a total of 24 tools. Gently used, and well cared for. Dembart checkering tools are the professional’s choice, and easy to use. When the cutters get dull, you can get replacements from Brownells or Midway. Price new would be over $250.00. Price for the lot $99.00 (View Picture)

SMA2614 Walnut Sporterized Stock For US M1917 Rifles. SMA2614 - No cracks, about 31 inches long. Comes with front sling swivel and recoil pad. Nice inexpensive stock for a sporterized '17 Enfield. $35.00 (View Picture)

21104 LOT OF THREE M98 STYLE RIFLE STOCKS- CHEAP! - What you see is what you get. Three 98 Mauser rifle stocks. I think one is from a Yugoslavian rifle, one is from a Czech VZ-24 and I am uncertain about the other one. Hardware ranged from pretty well stripped, to nearly complete- see the photos for details. Condition ranges from good to excellent. Unfortunately, I do not know enough about the fine details of the Mauser world to be more specific about these, but I do know that it is a screaming good deal to get all three of these for only $135.00 (View Picture)

15344 U.S. MODEL 1907 LEATHER SLING - WW2 era leather sling with WW1 brass claw on the short strap and nice 1918 date. Long strap has WW2 style steel claw. Leather is very stiff, and long strap has been cut off, but there is enough length that you can still put it on a rifle at the “parade” configuration for display purposes (after you soften the leather with saddle soap or other treatment methods). The two keepers are replacements that need a bit of leather dye to blend in. CHEAP! $20.00 (View Picture)

13541 CAMOUFLAGE STRIP MATERIAL FOR GHILLIE SUITS, NETS, VEHICLES, ETC - Genuine U.S. Military surplus, this comes on a roll and is a bit over 2 inches wide, and my guess is that the roll is probably about 50 yards, but strictly a guess. The roll is 10 inches diameter if that helps. Color is what I would describe as Vietnam era jungle green, sort of a yellowish green, not dark OD. Pretty sure it is Mildew Resistant Treated, as it has that nasty smell and the burlap material feels sort of waxy. This would be great for a Vietnam collector, or even WW2, or reenactors, or hunters or even paint ball types. I have four rolls I got to wrap around some shrubbery that we ended up cutting down. Price is $40 for the lot or four rolls, or buy one for $15.00 (View Picture)

22741 MAKAROV SHOULDER HOLSTERS- LOT OF TWO - What you see is what you get- two leather shoulder holsters for the 9 x 18mm Makarov pistol.

7357 GI "SILVERWARE" BARGAIN- LOT OF 10 SPOONS - Genuine U.S. GI field mess spoons. (Sorry, no knives or forks, someone else is probably overloaded with them, and whining about how hard it is to eat soup with a darn fork or knife, but no spoon!). Stamped from stainless steel, these are type used from mid WW2 to present with a large hole in the handle to help hold them for dipping in boiling water to clean them. Marked with U.S. on the handle, and most have various maker marks on the back. Fine for WW2 thru Vietnam collections. Bargain- Lot of TEN spoons, used excellent to mint unissued. $10.00 (Have several lots of 10 if you need more) (View Picture)

22656 WW2 PISTOL BELT WITH POUCH FOR TWO M1 CARBINE MAGAZINES - WW2 era pistol belt and pouch for two M1 Carbine 15 round magazines. Used, good condition. Some blue paint(or paintball?) stains on inside of belt). Cheap history for only $25.00 (View Picture)

22401 U.S. GRENADE LAUNCHER SIGHT SET, M15- (GRADE 2) - Unissued but victim of poor storage. Sight and base are excellent but theinstruction sheet has gotten wet and most of the printed surface has flaked off. Snaps on the pouch are nasty looking. A good one for actual use, or for reenactors to avoid messing up a mint one. Complete with instructions/range table (condition as noted above), mounting plate (with screws) and web carrying pouch. These were issued with the M1903 Springfield, M1 Garand and M14 rifles and the M1 Carbine. These attach on the left side of the stock which requires drilling two holes. Please do not mess up a good stock by mounting this on your favorite rifle. Go out and pick up a junky stock with some repairs or something instead for this purpose. $10.00 (View Picture)

15042 U.S. Army early Mine Detector AN/PRS-1 (1944) - The most familiar WW2 mine detector was the SCR-625 that looked like a dinner plate on the end of a long pole, and these are seen fairly often. However we have the “other” mine detector that was used in WW2, the AN/PRS-1 which like the SCR-625 had a long pole handle and a shoulder pack power supply and battery, but the sensor at the end of the pole looked like and oversize beer can with two pairs of thin rods sticking out on the left and right sides of the can. Despite some technical advantages over the SCR-625 in terms of types of mines which could be detected, the AN/PRS-1 was notoriously difficult to keep operating, and it was soon made obsolete and most were scrapped. This one comes in the original footlocker size shipping chest and appears to be nearly complete. I know it is missing the manuals (TM11-1151, Detector Set AN/PRS-1, 52 pages) and a radio type headset for the operator to hear the beep as the detector passes over a mine. I am positive that this unit no longer works. The cylindrical head assembly shows some very bad corrosion and exfoliation which is unsightly and could be cleaned up or made to look pretty with a little Bondo work and OD spray paint. There is one chip out of the Bakelite ring around the head, but the piece is included and can be epoxied back in place. One of the battery connector plugs has pulled loose, but it is present and ready of an easy repair. One electrical cord (I think the one that had a jack for the headset) has been cut off. The canvas backpack for carrying the power supply and batteries is included but has some acid holes in the top which could be covered over with a piece of canvas for better appearance. (I will include the four old batteries that were in it when we found it, totally worthless for use, but maybe you can use the connectors to adapt to something else?) The carrying chest (10” x 15” x 28”) is in excellent condition with sharp stencil markings. This is a nice collectible item for any WW2 collection, or showing the evolution of technology. Left in the crate, it would be wonderful cargo for a military vehicle. Shipping weight about 55 pounds and can go UPS. $149.00 (View Picture)

22179 U.S. M1944 SUSPENDERS- MISSING SOME HARDWARE- CHEAP - Good webbing, 1944 dated, but missing two buckles and three of the snaps. Great opportunity if you have some spare hardware, or have a pair with trashy webbing. $15.00 (View Picture)

21997 WW2 ERA M3 BARRACKS CLEANING RODS- LOT OF TWO- FOR M1 GARAND RIFLES - What you see is what you get. The M3 cleaning rod is a "barracks type" meaning that the rod is a single piece, not several jointed sections. These are threaded on the tip for use with a bore brush or with a patch holder (not inlcuded). New old stock, but poorly stored so the rods are rusty, but should clean up. Have a few that some idiot bent by storing something heavy on them. Not bad pretzel type bends, but needing some work to straighten out, so blowing them out cheap instead of taking the time to do it ourselves. Lof of TWO slightly bent rods for only $10.00 (View Picture)

17784 LYMAN four cavity mold and handles 35891 (148 grain) - Lyman has been the largest maker of bullet molds for nearly 100 years now. These are usually found in single, double or four cavity versions, with the larger molds obviously being more productive in terms of bullets per hour. These are all precision manufacture tools and when properly cared for will last a long time. Besides a lower cost per bullet than buying them from commercial sources, there is also the benefit of not being dependent on commercial sources as you can cast your own bullets using an electric casting pot, or even an iron pot on your kitchen stove. (The latter practice invites nasty comments from mothers and spouses, I have learned.) By tinkering with the lead alloy and lubes and sizing procedures cast bullets can achieve excellent accuracy, and with gas checks they can get good velocity, although not as high as jacketed bullets. This is a used mold, casting the bullet described above. It comes complete with handles. Overall condition fine to excellent showing just normal wear. Note that the wooden grips on the handles are damaged but usable, but the blocks should work just fine $95.00 (View Picture)
