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.

Firearms

SMOF6792 - SPANISH MODEL 1916 MAUSER SHORT RIFLE, 7X57MM MAUSER CALIBER Serial number K5176 made at the Spanish Fabric de Armas (Arsenal) Oviedo Arsenal in 1924. These were the next generation of Smapish military arms after the Model 1893 Mauser rifles used in the Spanish American War. Those had the typical long barrels popular for infantry rifles at the time, but by 1916 shorter arms were fashionable and Spain adopted the Model 1916 with a 22 inch barrel and improved sights but otherwise pretty much the same as the Model 1893, and many of the older rifles were converted to Model 1916 configuration.

This one was made as a Model 1916, not a conversion. It was arsenal refinished and overhauled when sold as surplus. Nice looking gun on the outside, but the quality of the original workmanship and materials at Spanish Arsenals is not as good as the fine rifles made by the German or Swedish makers. Collector interest in these is mainly from their use during the Spanish Civil War, as Spain remained neutral during WW1 and “non-belligerent” during WW2. $295.00 (View Picture)

SMOF5793 - 22120 - JAPANESE TYPE 38 TRAINING RIFLE (BLANKS ONLY) - Serial number- none- maker unknown Japanese factory. These are pretty scarce compared to “regular” Type 38 rifles, and this is the only one we have seen that includes a bolt cover. Will look better cleaned up. An interesting addition to any WW2 or Japanese weapon collection.

Although some Japanese training rifles were damaged or obsolete arms slightly modified for training use, many, like this one, were purpose made using very crude materials totally unsafe for ever firing with live ammunition. These use cast iron for receivers and other parts were crudely fashioned and ill-fitting, but good enough for youngsters to practice drill. These were also used to fire blank cartridges (and those made from “real” guns were specifically marked to be used with blanks only). The bores on these barrels are simple smoothbore holes either crudely drilled of even cast, and the locking lugs on the bolt are more decorative than functional. The “cleaning rod” is a dummy part just stuck into the stock tip.

This is a good example of these somewhat scarce Japanese military arms with the typical one piece stock (instead of the usual use of a separate piece of wood for the lower part of the Buttstock) which is unsanded and has the original finish and an old rack number 82 painted on the right side. This one is a bit unusual in having a crudely made bolt cover. The rear sight sleeve is very loose on the barrel, and just about every part you look at is decidedly non-standard and “cheap Jap junk” quality.

Metal parts were originally finished some dark color, perhaps by bluing or some other process but that has turned mostly to light brown patina, but it may clean up with some patient work with some oil and steel wool.

Remember, this is NOT TO BE FIRED Sorry, we can not accept credit card payment for this item. $225.00 (View Picture)




Bargain Items

**NEW ADDITION** 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)

**NEW ADDITION** 7756 BARGAIN LOT OF MAUSER RIFLE PARTS Gew98, K98k, etc - What you see is what you get. Complete bolt assembly is probably from Gew 98, loose extractor from an earlier model. One complete rear and front sight from K98k; plus front sight band less fight blade. Milled buttplate, two lower bands two upper bands from K98k and bayonet bar. Also five safeties, Argentine bayonet adapter and milled upper band and nose plate from earlier model. EVERYTHING in the photo for only $69.00 (View Picture)

**NEW ADDITION** 20043 U.S. M84 TELESCOPE FOR SNIPER RIFLE- DEMIL RELIC- CHEAP! - This is actually the remains of two M84 scopes, saw cut to demil them by some government paid idiots. Good for salvaging some internal parts, and one of the dust caps? With a little ingenuity someone might be able to trim up the ends to the correct overall length and then epoxy them together in one of the repro M1D scope mounts and use it for a reenactor gun, or have your girlfriend sell it to some greedy dealer to get even for the times they screwed you. $95.00 (View Picture)

**NEW ADDITION** 22054 HPH U.S. NAVY DUMMY TRAINING RIFLE MARK I (NON-FIRING COPY OF M1903 SPRINGFIELD) FROM THE HART COLLECTION
Rifles were desperately needed for front line troops during WW2, leading to the purchase of dummy rifles for use in basic training to teach marching and close order drill, etc. This made hundreds of thousands of "real" rifles available for issue to troops in combat units, or advanced training. The Parris-Dunn Corporation of Clarinda, Iowa, produced a full size replica of the Model 1903 Springfield, and the Navy bought 300,000 and the Army also purchased some more.
The Dummy Rifle Mark I continued in ceremonial use in some Navy commands well into the 1970s. This example is totally correct and complete with about 90% original finish- blued metal parts with correct black painted bolt and trigger guard parts. Wood parts with original stained and painted finish, and a few minor storage and handling dings for a 65 year old item. The often missing rear sight is intact. Buttplate marked "DUMMY TRAINING RIFLE/ MARK I - U.S.N./ PARRIS-DUNN CORP/ CLARINDA IOWA" has about 90% of the original blue finish. There is a light film of dirt, dust and dry surface rust that should be cleaned off to improve the appearance considerably. This is a well above average example of these historically significant U.S. martial arms, a must for any M1903 Springfield collector. Not a firearm, no FFL or paperwork needed, and not even banned in Kalifornia, yet.
There is also a scarce U.S. Army “VICTORY MODEL 1942” which is similar but uses a stamped trigger guard and fixed trigger and lacks the “click” feature and bayonet lug of the Navy model. For full info on these, and all other dummy drill rifles see Maclcolm MacPherson’s excellent site at http://user.pa.net/~the.macs/PDTR.html $185.00 (View Picture)
PROVENANCE NOTE- This is item number 234 from the Howard P. Hart and Jean H. Hart Collection of Historical Arms. Mr. Hart was a career Central Intelligence Agency Officer as well as an avid arms collector. A large part of their collection was donated to the Virginia War Memorial Museum in Richmond, VA, and many other items donated to the National WW2 Museum in New Orleans, LA. This item has the Hart Collection inventory tag attached, and comes with a certificate of provenance and a copy of Howard’s fascinating autobiography, signed by Jean Hart. The association of this item with Mr. Howard Hart, and this outstanding collection adds to its desirability for your collection and for future owners and helps preserve the legacy of Mr. Hart.)

**NEW ADDITION** 22054 HPH 313 - SCARCE WW2 U.S. ARMY “VICTORY MODEL 1942” DUMMY TRAINING RIFLE (NON-FIRING COPY OF M1903 SPRINGFIELD) FROM THE HART COLLECTION
Rifles were desperately needed for front line troops during WW2, leading to the purchase of dummy rifles for use in basic training to teach marching and close order drill, etc. This made hundreds of thousands of "real" rifles available for issue to troops in combat units, or advanced training. The Parris-Dunn Corporation of Clarinda, Iowa, is best known for the 300,000 full size replica of the Model 1903 Springfield, the “DUMMY TRAINING RIFLE MARK I” made for the U.S. Navy with additional number purchased by the Army
However, prior to production of the Navy version the Army had a contract for 35,000 simpler rifles, marked “VICTORY MODEL 1942 / PD” on the buttplate. These were pretty basic, and had a sheet metal receiver piece and movable bolt, but the only other metal parts were the buttplate, a short metal rod and front sight, sling and stacking swivels, and a stamped trigger guard and flat trigger fixed in the stock. In lieu of any rear sight, that area was just wood slightly shaped to resemble the 1903 rear sight. There were no provisions for attaching a bayonet. If you are familiar with the Navy Mark I these difference will stand out, and of course as a obsessive collector you simply must have BOTH in your collection!

This example is totally correct and complete with about 80% original finish- blued metal parts with correct black painted bolt and trigger guard parts. Wood parts with original stained and painted finish, and a few minor storage and handling dings for a 65 year old item. The forend tip of the stock has been rounded on the bottom and the “upper band” repainted, otherwise all original. There is a light film of dirt, dust and dry surface rust that should be cleaned off to improve the appearance considerably. This is only the second or third example of the scarce Army model we have ever found. A must for any M1903 Springfield collector. Not a firearm, no FFL or paperwork needed, and not even banned in Kalifornia, yet.
For full info on these, and all other dummy drill rifles see Maclcolm MacPherson’s excellent site at http://user.pa.net/~the.macs/PDTR.html $99.00 (View Picture)

18857 U.S. MODEL 1873 BAYONET & M1885 SCABBRD FOR .45-70 TRAPDOOR RIFLES - Okay, this is not the nicest example we have had, but it is cheap! The bayonet has about 50% blue with the rest a mix of plum, patina and pinpoint roughness. The scabbard body is a bit worse and likely both have been touched up. The leather frog was partially torn and loose, but repaired with epoxy so it is fine for display, but a bit fragile for actual use, so postpone your marching out to avenge Custer’s massacre. The brass loop is bent a bit, but still serviceable to fit through a loop on the Mills cartridge belt. Did we mention it was a cheap representative example? $125.00 (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)

21106 U.S. MODEL 1907 LEATHER SLING –MILSCO 1943 - WW2 production by Milwaukie Saddlery Company with steel hardware. This is a fairly nice sling, but has a “set” from being on a M1903 and pulled very tight so the leather is sharply bent at the swivel location. The M1903 swivels are about an inch closer together than on the M1 Garand, and about 2 inches closer than the M1917 rifle, so this is a good choice if you want a sling for a M1903, but not other models. Some surface cracking, especially at the bend around the swivel, otherwise pretty nice and somewhat flexible. Good for display, but perhaps not for actual use. Priced accordingly. $55.00 (View Picture)

23348 LARGE LOT VIETNAM WEB GEAR & MANUALS- NOAH’S ARK TWOFER DEAL! - What you see is what you get, all mated up like on Noah’s ark. TWO web belts, one M1956 cotton web, one LC-2 nylon web, BOTH size LARGE. TWO M16 20 round mag pouches- nylon “Case, Ammunition, M16 20 round magazine, 1968 dated. Small straps to secure grenades have been removed. TWO M16 20 round mag pouches, cotton web. Small straps to secure grenades have been removed. TWO M16 30 round mag pouches, cotton web. “Case, Small Arms Ammunition, Universal, 1969 dated. Grenade straps are intact on these. TWO Canteen covers, one M1956 cotton web, other is LC-2 nylon web used VG, (hey, they would match up with the belts above!) TWO M1956 Entrenching Tool carriers, cotton web, used VG-fine. TWO EACH- M19 Binoculars manual, and two different gas mask manuals. All this cool stuff for only $75.00 (View Picture)

14445 U.S. NAVY WW2 “SPYGLASS, QUARTERMASTER, MARK I, 16 POWER” - Big and impressive, about 31” long and 3” diameter at the objective end. Made in 1942 by Wollensak Corporation, these were used aboard every ship in the Navy. The Quartermasters in the Navy are responsible for navigation, not like the box kicking supply guys in the Army. Proper navigation required identification of landmarks, etc and also these were much more powerful than the usual 7x50 binoculars used by everyone else on ships, so they would be used to identify ships on the horizon, etc. These are similar to the “long glass” or “spyglass” used by mariners for at least a century or two prior to WW2, except they are solid or fixed length, not telescoping into a shorter length, and they are pretty robust construction and had very good optical qualities. This is a good item for any Navy, nautical, or pirate collection, with some very obvious wear and tear and signs of age so it looks “olde.” Perhaps it was salvaged from a shipwreck, or more likely was neglected in storage for a long time as the interior shows significant water damage and the optics are opaque, the brass corroded and the imitation pigskin or leatherette covering on the scope tube has separated, torn and slipped (however, not too bad on one side, so just don’t let people see the ugly side). These were sometimes issued or locally modified to remove this type covering and instead wrap the body with a fine cord and given a black lacquer finish, or you could just remove all the stuff and polish all the brass. When accompanied by the original wooden box, really nice examples of these sell in the $600-800 range. But this ugly beat up one is all yours for only $79.00 (View Picture)

7725 CLASSIC TELESCOPE BARGAINS! BUY ONE OR BUY ALL! - Odds and ends that came in with various collections. Weaver and Redfield scopes are noted for their ruggedness and long life, and are a nice addition to any vintage sporting rifle, or for use in the field. Buy just the one you like or buy the whole lot and sell them at gun shows or flea markets. TAKE 20% OFF PRICES SHOWN IF YOU BUY THEM ALL!

7725A- REDFIELD 2X FRONT MOUNTED INTERMEDIATE EYE RELIEF (“Front-IER”) SCOPE- These were made 1965-1971 for use on the Winchester Model 94 and other rifles where the scope could not be mounted over the receiver for some reason. This would also apply to the configuration favored by Jeff Cooper and his “scout rifle” concept. Redfield made mounts for use on the Model 94, and also for some of the British Lee Enfields, but can be used with any ¾” rings. This comes with the upper part of the mount for a 94 Winchester, but the base is on a rifle out there somewhere. Length about 10 3/8” with ¾” tube, and eye relief of 6-9 inches, field of view 18 feet at 100 yards, weight 11 ounces. Used, excellent optics with crosshair reticule and only some minor wear on the sharp edges. Note that this is marked “2X” but according to Nick Stroebel’s book on scopes and sights this should be 2.3X with the ¾” tube, and there was a version with a 1” tube that was 2X. $95.00 (View Picture)

7725D- Weaver K1.5-1- Excellent to new condition. Circa 1968-1984, Tapered crosshair reticule, 1” tube. $75.00 (View Picture)

7725E- Weaver B4- Excellent to nearly new condition, early type with exposed adjustments, not the later type with caps over them. Crosshair reticule, ¾” tube. Nice old vintage scope for .22 rifles of the 1950s. $65.00 (View Picture)

7725F- Weaver Marksman- A cheap .22 rifle scope, optics okay, tube has scrapes and scratches- okay for a kid to use or a gun kept in the barn or truck where you don’t want to mess up a really good scope. ¾” tube, comes with mounts for grooved receiver. $10.00 (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)

16585 U.S. 75MM GUN CARTRIDGE CASE WITH WOODEN PROJECTILE -
Nice condition with good headstamp including 75m/m G[un]LOT 270-15 SCOVILL, and 111-33 which is probably a loading lot number and 1933 date. The case appears to be circa 1917-1930 vintage, but these cases continued in use through WW2. Primer has been removed. The 75mm gun included those mounted on wheeled carriages as field guns, and also as the main armament in the M3 Grant/Lee and M4 Sherman tanks, as well as on some self-propelled guns. Overall pretty nice except for 4 small holes drilled near the mouth of the case. The wooden projectile is turned from pine, and stained brown, showing some use and abuse, but still a nice decorative piece. What you see is what you get. INERT- no flammable or explosive components. $65.00 (View Picture)

16381 REMINGTON MODEL 10 TRAP GRADE 12 GA STOCK SET AND SLIDE - What you see is what you get. The Trap Grade Model 10 had a straight grip stock instead of the usual pistol grip type found on the field grade. The buttstock is in VG-fine condition, with the hard rubber Remington buttplate, one of the few which escaped having a rubber recoil pad installed. Looks like the wood is a fancier grade than the usual straight grain black walnut. The operating slide is marked “TRAP GRADE” and again is a desirable part for restoration. The wood forend matches the butt in color but has no figure, and there is a ¼” x ½” chip at the rear as shown in the photos. The butt does have a slight crack visible at the top and bottom of the left side, see “V” marks in the photos. What you see is what you get, and we hope this will help someone with a restoration project. This came off a gun in the U66xxx range if that makes any difference. $55.00 (View Picture)

20475 U.S. M1907 LEATHER RIFLE SLING- MILSCO 1944 - Correct for any of the M1903, 1917, M1 Garand rifles and also used on trench guns and a few others. This is correct G.I. style, but small details of the workmanship and lack of apparent age makes me think it is one of the damnable fakes being sold today, so we are selling as a repro and priced accordingly. Great for a reenactor or shooter, but a purist collector might want to choose something different. $25.00 (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)

22051 BAYONET SCABBARDS OF ALL KINDS -

22051A- U.S. MODEL 1917 WW2 PLASTIC SCABBARD for M1917 Bayonets for Trench Guns- Mint unissued. Seldom ever find these loose. Gary Cunningham’s great book on U.S. bayonets indicates the ink stamped inspector markings on this one are circa 1950s made as replacements for use with trench guns still in service, an not the later ones procured with bayonets during Vietnam. You just know you have to have one of every variation… $135.00 (View Picture)

22051C- LOT OF 2 U.S. SCABBARDS- ONE M7 & ONE M8A1 The M8A1 was issued with the M3 Trench knife and M4, M5, M6 and M7 bayonets, and it is in pretty good shape except the metal throat piece has surface rust. The M7 scabbard for the 10 inch M1 Bayonet for the Garand is one of those altered by shortening the earlier M3 scabbard for the 16 inch M1905 bayonets. It looks nice at first glance, but the tip area is worn and frayed and starting to separate. This could be fixed with a bit of epoxy and the plastic body repainted OD if you like. BOTH for only 55.00 (View Picture)

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)

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)

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)

13258 WW2 GERMAN PARATROOP GRAVITY KNIFE - This is the second model with the small square tab which can be pushed to allow the cap with the arrow to slide off and then one handle can be pivoted away to open it for cleaning. Overall used good-very good condition with the small loop intact and the release trigger and locking mechanism working properly. Unmarked except for a serial number on the latch trigger, and the spike marked RB. NR. 0/0561/0019 with letter R on the reverse side. Very little finish left on the outside, and grips are worn, but still an average or better example. These were issued to paratroops (Fallschirmjaegers) and also to Luftwaffe personnel as they could be opened with one hand when needed to cut free from a parachute or other survival tasks. Scarce item rarely found any more. $525.00 (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)

22880 BARGAIN LOT OF 3 WW2 BRASS SHELL CASINGS- 105mm, 75mm, 40mm - Condition is a little rough for a collector, but okay as representative examples, or for making wind chimes or the numerous creative artistic projects people keep asking about. Lot includes a 105mm Howitzer case, M14; a 75mm Pack Howitzer case M5A1; and a 40mm Bofors Anti-Aircraft gun case M25. All are WW2 dated, 1943, 1944 and 1944 respectively. Some heavier corrosion or patina, and a shallow dent on the 75mm case. Bargain price for the lot of three cases is only $80.00 (View Picture)

18311 U.S. M1907 STYLE LEATHER SLING - Commercial product just about identical to the G.I. item except the claws are brass plated instead of solid brass. Fine for living history use or for shooting. Used VG with some minor cracking as shown in the photos. Cheap! $20.00 (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)

19981 U.S. MILITARY FIREARMS 1776-1956, JAMES E. HICKS - My favorite U.S. Martial arms reference book. Approx 212 pages about 88 of them being the unsurpassed detailed line drawings by Andre Jandot. The drawings bring out details not found anywhere else and are most useful for identifying parts and doing restoration work. This is 1962 edition but essentially same as the earlier 1957 edition with the same title, and the 1946 version "Notes on United States Ordnance, Volume 1". This book desperately needs to be reprinted. Used, copy, formerly in the U.S. Army Ordnance Technical Library at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, so it has a nice pedigree. About good condition, excellent reading copy. $45.00 (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)

19087 U.S. WW2 M1923 CARTRIDGE BELT - Standard WW2 M1923 cartridge belt with the inner straps for use when loading two five round clips in each pocket for the M1903 Springfields. This is the early war greenish khaki shade and overall excellent condition. It is totally unmarked. It had a small cloth tag sewn on the back where maker markings are usually stamped, reading GEMSCO- Fraternal Suppliers, which we believed to be sewn over the original marking on a GI surplus item for resale to VFW posts and the like. It turned out there was no marking underneath, but we are certain it was made by an Army supplier circa 1941-1945. Except for being unmarked it is identical to the military issue belts, but the price is a lot cheaper. $65.00 (View Picture)

19640 MUZZLE LOADER BARREL BONANZA! - 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.

19640B- MODEL 1861 SPRINGFIELD FULL LENGTH ATROCITY VICTIM Excellent bore! Bolster milled off and drilled and tapped for a drum type nipple, or bushing for flintlock use. When you get done crying over the mutilations which took place, remember the bore is excellent and this would be worth the work to fix up. I think that the skirmish shooters have special cast breech sections which are used to add a bolster to commercial round barrels by turning the rear of the barrel down and then sliding the breech section in place and silver soldering it. Outside has VG-fine surface with some slight staining and a very little scattered very light roughness. $150.00 (View Picture)

19640C- MODEL 1855 HARPERS FERRY CUT DOWN “Must be Confederate!” (You know, Bubba’s grandpappy was in the Confederate army, or was that the he was found drunk near the VFW club one night?) Overall length 33 1/8” with excellent bore. A front sight has been added, but someone also flattened our an area on the bottom about 3 inches from the muzzle. Good 1860 date, V, P eagle head and the rear sight slot has the small forward “T” cut unique to Harpers Ferry arms. This is a rifle-musket barrel that has been cut down, not a M1855 rifle barrel, but you could use this to make up a close copy. Lots of possibilities for this one, some innocent fun, some skullduggery from those ethically challenged. $125.00 (View Picture)

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)

15009 BARGAIN LOT OF FOUR BRAND NEW WINCHESTER WINCHOKE CHOKE TUBES - Genuine Winchester manufacture, new old stock, never used. In the factory plastic container with instructions.

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)

14227 Weapons of the Civil War by Ian Hogg - 173 pages about 8.5” x 11” hardbound. Like all of Hogg’s books they are well researched, nicely illustrated and intended as general introductions to a new collector, historian or person who is not a long time serious gun collector. This would be great for a younger person with an interest in old guns, or the Civil War to give them some background and gauge their interest. Used, good with the dustjacket a bit scuffed and worn but still a nice copy. $5.00 (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)

**SOLD** SMA2582 Walnut Sporterized Stock For US M1903/A3 Rifles. - No cracks, about 31 inches. Nice inexpensive stock for a sporterized US M1903/A3 Rifle. $35.00 (View Picture)

22086 FN Browning Pistols: Side-Arms that Shaped World History- Anthony Vanerlinden - First edition, 2009. 334 pages about 9” x 11” hardbound. Brand new condition, signed by the author. This is an exceptional book that any arms collector should own. While the general and detailed specific information on John M. Browning’s FN made pistols alone is sufficient reason, there are additional insights that collectors should know. There is a lot of information on the history of Fabrique Nationale which was much more than just a gun maker for the civilian market. They were a major industrial firm, closely tied to the government, making diverse product lines including bicycles and automobiles. In addition, there is significant information on government trials for the various guns discussed (by many different governments!) and information on the civilian sales arrangements around the world. These historical background details are essential for a better understanding of the entire spectrum of the firearms world, from invention, to patents, manufacture, licensing and sales, marketing, custom features, wartime interruptions, etc. I understand there is an expanded second edition coming out soon, so we are blowing out remaining copies of the out of print first edition (regular price $64.95) for the bargain price (including FREE SHIPPING!) of only $35.00 (View Picture)

14217 BARGAIN LOT M1903/1903A3/M1 GARAND RUSTY OR BOOGERED PARTS - What you see is what you get. M1903 Springfield milled butt plate that is rusty, but little if any pitting should show after being cleaned. M1 Garand buttplate is in good shape, but the checkered pattern is mostly worn or deliberately removed- fine for a reenactor. Three milled and one stamped butt swivel for M1903/1903A3 with medium to heavy rust, but may clean up enough to use. One M1903/03A3 safety with a corner ground off to clear a scope or something, and a M1903A3 rear sight that had the protective ears on the side ground down. Works fine otherwise. The lot of rusty junk, er great parts for only $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. Not sure where these came from, but probably Hungary, East Germany or some other Commie country. Appear to be mint unissued. BOTH holsters for only $20.00 (View Picture)

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)

22655 LOT OF 48 STORAGE TUBES WITH CAPS FOR PARTS, CARTRIDGES, ETC - Small clear plastic storage bottles about ¾ inch ID by 2 inches long with tight fitting slip on cap. New, unused. Great for storing single collector cartridges, or small parts, or samples of bullets or gunpowder, or whatever else you can think of. Have four boxes of 12 each, total 48 tubes for only $6.00 (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)

21981 LOT OF TWO M1903 SPRINGFIELD BOLTS - What you see is what you get. Lot of two M1903/03A3 Springfield bolt bodies with extractor ring in place. The firing pin holes have been welde shut for use on drill rifles, otherwise the look to be in pretty good shape. Have three sets, and photo shows worst one with some silver paint on one of the bolts over the parkerized finish. Use for a drill rifle, or some people rework them for actual use, but we advise agains that. Two bolts for only $10.00 (View Picture)

21978 LOT OF 14 ASSORTED BRISTLE BRUSHES FOR GUN CLEANING - What you see is what you get. Lot of 14 assorted bristl bushes with long twisted wire handles. Sometimes called "test tube brushes" these can be used for all sorts of gun cleaning, etc. CHEAP- the lot for $6.00 (View Picture)

These have a smaller pocket on the side in addition to the four areas in the main pocket. All about mint unissued, all sold as a single lot of four for only $20.00 (View Picture)

SMA2379 Holster Leathercraft Mixson Mod # DB623 - Nice black leather with basket weave design. Fits small frame automatic pistols. Good condition with a few scuffs and scrapes, will probably clean up with a little shoe polish. $15.00 (View Picture)

19688 Cheap M1907 style sling - Made in the same style as U.S. military Model 1907 leather slings, but the leather is cheaper and a bit thinner, and the hooks are thinner stamped steel. Would probably work okay, but not nearly as good workmanship as the real GI slings. Looks about new. $20.00 (View Picture)

10741 WW1 M1917 TRIPLE POUCH FOR M1917 REVOLVERS (REPRODUCTION) - Three pockets, each holding two half moon clips of .45 ACP ammo. This was unique to the M1917 revolvers, and while never common, they have about vanished. Originals are now selling at $125 and more, so we were glad to be able to get these superb quality reproductions which we can sell for less than half that. Exact reproduction with every detail correct, except not maker marked. (We have marked inside of the belt loop "REPRO" so people will be able to tell the difference.

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)

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. $95.00 (View Picture)
