Winchester Lee Navy Sporter SOLD

Of the 20,000 Lee Navy rifles produced, approximately only 1700 are factory sporters. Of those 1700 sporters, a very few have factory special order options. Madis states "guns with any extras in the Lee model are almost impossible to find". This particular example is documented in the factory ledgers at the Cody Museum. The ledger states that the serial number was applied on June 17, 1898 and shipped in Feb. 1901, making this a prescribed "Antique" in the U.S. It's unknown how many special order Lee Sporters were made, but it's reasonable to say this could be a one of a kind rifle. This rifle has a checkered stock, xxx grade fancy wood, special sights, rubber shotgun butt, oil finish, and sling swivels. Barrel length is 24" and chambered in 6mm (.236 USN).  Condition is 85 % plus, bore is excellent with only minor dulling in the grooves and sharp clean deep rifleing.  This is a rifle for the advanced collector.

​$4200 Can. SOLD

​Winchester Model 1873 38-40 SOLD

Manufactured in 1888, this rifle has a beautiful bore with strong, sharp,  rifling, with only minor black powder freckling, the bore shows mostly bright.  Mechanically it functions as it should, I have shot this rifle and it is a very accurate rifle.  Overall metal finish would rate approximately 40%, with barrel and mag at about 20-30%, receiver right side shows better than 50% and the left shows maybe 30%.  There is very nice deep iridescent blue in the protected areas.  The wood has been finished to very glossy, definitely not factory but a very nice presentable job, if the wood was sanded, it was minimal, returning it to near original factory finish would not be difficult.  A very nice collectable Winchester 1873 and I have the matching Colt SAA in the same caliber for sale.

$3200 SOLD

Winchester Model 1892 SRC 

This wonderful  little rifle is chambered in 44-40, made in 1907, the most sought after caliber in a 92.  It has a very good shootable bore, bright and shiny with only minimal freckling.  The wood is solid and appears to have some of the original finish, blue is turning brown but appears to be somewhat in between, with some remnants of old oil turning yellow in places.

Long Branch No.4 Mark 1* “Lightweight”
This is a prototype rifle… only an estimated 50 were produced (maybe) Special features are the one-piece stock and black rubber Hawkins buttplate, Bore has strong rifling, but dark. Very rare and highly collectable rifle in original configuration.  Check out the last one that sold at auction at James Julia's -  lot 1659, April 2017, ($25,300 U.S. - $31,800 can.), this rifle is arguably in better overall condition with the correct Hawkens butt pad. 


$25,000 Can.

J. Wood Canadian Rifle SOLD

This is a stunning piece of Canadian history, built in Brantford, Ontario, at that time, Upper Canada, so pre 1841.  Wood must have been an accomplished builder of fine firearms by the look of this rifle, tiger striped maple wood, accented with mostly brass furnishings as well as a number of silver inlays of different designs.  Mechanically it functions as intended with the safety cock position and the fire position holding true.  The barrel is massive, over an inch in diameter, with a very good bore with lots of rifling.  The gun is engraved on the iron parts as well as some of the brass, evidence of a period repair is apparent.  The wood is cracked in a number of places, however it remains quite solid and would be a simple repair.  The ramrod is not original to the rifle but serves the purpose.

​$1895 Can. SOLD

Whitney Howard Thunderbolt

Approximately 1700 of these rifles were produced by Whitney arms, too late for the Civil War, 1866-1870.  This rifle is chambered in 44 rimfire and is a designated antique in Canada, no license required.  The wood appears to be in fantastic condition, it is hard to be certain if the finish has been redone but it is likely, if so minimal to no sanding has occurred.  It has a very good bore with deep solid rifleing and just some black powder evidence with no real deep pitting.  It has the correct sight and the metal finish is very good.

$1250 obo


SNIDER Enfield Cavalry Carbine SOLD

This is the real thing not some long gun cut down to make a carbine and a Canadian gun on top of that.  Bore condition is very good, lots of strong sharp rifling with minimal black powder freckling, no craters.  Mechanical function is perfect, missing the nipple protector and leather sight cover, but everything else is there and correct for a carbine.  I see a rack number but nothing else to indicate where she has been.  Stock appears to be original condition although the Enfield stamp is a little light, it is Dominion of Canada marked on the right side.


$950​ SOLD
