Isaac Hollis Single Shot Rifle

A Martini Henry action and a top grade British gun maker, makes this quite a combination for a sporting grade rifle.  It sports beautiful wood front and back with a horn forehand cap, as with most British sporting grade rifles it has sling swivels and is checkered.  The bore is mint and is chambered in 577-450, mechanically it works perfectly and should make a great classic shooter.  Overall condition is extremely good.

Winchester Model 1886 40-65

Date of manufacture is 1892, This rifle is in amazing original condition.  The mechanics function as they should and it sports a minty bore, bright and sharp.  Metal finish on the barrel is original and 85% plus, with the mag tube going more plum colour.  The receiver has lost all of its colour case but is in the typical shiny silver that remains when the thin case colours disappear.  The wood is wonderful, with no chips or cracks, lots of bumps and bruises as obviously this rifle was used for intended purposes.  This is a very clean collector grade rifle in a rarer caliber.


Bullard Rifle SOLD

Large frame 8 screw model, 28 inch, 45-85, octagon to round barrel.  This is an early rifle with a serial number of 131,  indicating a manufacture date of 1881.  All Bullard rifles were serial numbered using blocks or groups of numbers assigned to specific models.  The large frame models were assigned the serial number blocks of 1 to 1500 and from 2000 to 3500.  The function of loading unloading this rifle is with a rack and pinion system, making them very expensive to build, no doubt this is why they did not make very many of them.  The metal finish is mostly gone with some added colour, it is pleasing to the eye but not original, the wood is in very good condition overall.  Although used quite a bit this rifle was well cared for, this is proven by the extremely fine bore in a black powder gun.  This is a very good example of a very scarce lever gun.

Presentation Tranter 2nd Model

Approximately 40 Caliber percussion revolver.  This was a presentation piece from Alexander Workman Jr., the Mayor of Ottawa, in 1868, to Dr. Edward Van Cortlandt a well known Surgeon and business man in Bytown at that time.  Limited research indicates, Van Cortlandt owned a stone a stone quarry west of Ottawa and supplied the government as well as the City of Ottawa, the brown sandstone used in some of the buildings downtown as well as the Parliament Buildings.  The pistol is in a period correct box made for the Tractor with all the correct loading equipment.  Truly a piece for the more seasoned collector, and a wonderful piece of Canadian history.

Winchester 1895 Flatside
​One of 5000 rifles made in the 1895, the flatside is distinguishable from other 1895 rifles by the lack of scallops in the receiver sides as well it has a solid lever where the others are split. This was the only model 1895 that Winchester could make into a pistol grip. These are very collectible rifles. There is no original finish left on the rifle, what appears to be a blueing of some kind is all over the metal bits. The wood, although solid was likely worked on in years past. It has a shootable bore, dark with strong rifling, it should shoot as intended. Sights are not correct, barrel has been cut, tang has been drilled and tapped for peep sight. Caliber is 30 U.S.

Winchester Model 1895
If you have been looking for a collector grade 1895 this is the one for you. Other than the added sling swivel holes this rifle is completely original and in very high condition. Blue on the barrel is 95%, the receiver is 85% plus. It has an excellent bright shiny bore and is an excellent shooter. Its chambered in 30-40 Krag or 30 US. if you prefer. Wood is excellent with normal marks and dings from hunting, no cracks or missing pieces. There are lots of 1895's out there but not many in this condition.

​$2700 Can. OBO
Rolling Block Baby Carbine 44RF
Extremely rare roller, there are only 2 known baby carbines in 44 rim fire, 1 was owned by Roy Marcot and the other belonged to Leroy Merz, both guns sported 18 inch barrels, this rifle has a 16 inch barrel. This could be the only rifle in this configuration known to exist, one of a kind. Bore has good strong rifling with some black powder freckling, would actually make a decent shooter. Metal finish is a pleasing mostly brown patina. Front and rear sights appear to be correct with the baby carbine. Wood is complete with no real problems, lots of bumps and bruises and some small missing bits but mostly complete and original. Mechanically it functions as it should.
$3700 Can.


Rare Brown Bess Light Infantry 
This is an untouched rare Infantry model Brown bess, these are very hard to find and the ones you find are often messed with.

Overall a very rare historical piece in original, as found, condition.
