Engraved Belgian Pinfire Revolver
Another unbelievable piece of history, manufactured sometime between 1870 and 1890. This is one of the most beautiful, intricate, works of art I have come across in many years, from the deep relief engraving to the magnificent Elephant tusk ivory accessories and grips. Bore is approximately .290 caliber, not that I would recommend firing this revolver but mechanically functions as it should and would likely make a good shooter. Finish is 90% plus, as would be expected from a cased firearm. The wood case is a little weak on the bottom but in general it is in very good condition. Recommended for the seasoned collector. Antique status.
Colt 1877 Thunderer SOLD
This is a very nice Thunderer, good timing and lock up, no play in the cylinder and an extremely nice bore. Chambered in 41 Colt as all Thunderers were, it sports good solid grips with no cracks or chips. These are very sought after as antique shooters, however one has to keep in mind to use very light loads and not to shoot in double action, the internal mechanisms are very fragile. This is an antique in Canada, no License required, comes with RCMP antique status letter.
Root Revolver 2nd Model
Cased second model Colt Root revolver .28 caliber manufactured in 1856. Revolver has 80 percent finish with burled walnut grips. It is in an original case with original accessories, including an extremely fine powder flask and a very nice .28 caliber bullet mold. The correct minty tin cap box is also included. Mechanics on this firearm work perfectly, timing and lock-up is spot on. This is an overall brilliant piece and would make a great addition to any experienced collection. Definitely for the seasoned collector.
Winchester 1894 32 sp. SOLD
This is an exceptional piece, a special order rifle in a take down configuration. This rifle was manufactured in 1901 which was the first year that the 32 special was offered in a Winchester rifle.

The original metal finish is 80 % blue with thinning areas in the carry position and edges, there is also some loss at the top of the receiver on the loading side. It has a mint bore, mirror shiny with sharp rifling, it doesn't t get much better. Case colour is still visible on the lever and hammer, as well the fire blue on the loading gate is very much intact. The tension spring on the correct 32 special windage sight is missing. This is a piece for the experienced collector. Call for more details.

The rest of the rifle is basically grey, with the case coloured receiver showing very little of the silver finish left from the case hardening. The wood is very good, showing some shrinkage near the butt plate but overall extremely nice. The rifle functions as it should and should make a great shooter should you decide to shoot it.

This shotgun combination is quite rare, most of these two barrel sets have been split up many many years ago, this one has survived in its original case since being manufactured in 1896 and serial numbers matching gun and both barrels. The specific measurements of each barrel is listed on a separate sheet in the pictures, if you have any other questions you can inquire. Bores are bright and shiny, with both barrel sets completely restored, one set Damascus and the other fluid steal. Gun functions as expected, the english walnut is solid with no apparent repairs. Overall a beautiful piece, right for the seasoned collector/shooter.
