Colt First Model Dragoon Revolver

Lot # 377 (Sale Order: 377 of 824)      

serial #4928, .44 caliber, 7 1/2” barrel. This is a salty old Dragoon. The metal surfaces of revolver retain an even gray patina with scattered even light pitting along with scattered impact marks. There is no scene or serial number visible on the cylinder. The barrel and frame show only remnants of their serial numbers which have been mostly obliterated by pitting and scattered impact marks. The backstrap shows a lightly restamped serial number as the original was obliterated by numerous impact marks. The one piece walnut grip appears to be an old replacement or a heavily sanded original. The "COLTS / PATENT" mark on the left side of the frame has been restamped in more modern fonts (the same font as the backstrap number). These revolvers pre-date the Henry rifle by more than 10 years and while this example is in tired condition, it is functionally mechanical and would make a good solid example for the budding collector.

A. H. Fox He Grade Super Fox Boxlock Double Ejectorgun

Lot # 386 (Sale Order: 386 of 824)      

serial #29562, 12 Ga. (3”), 30” barrels choked full and full with bright excellent bores. The barrels retain about 98% excellent quality restored blue finish with some light muzzle wear and a remnant or two of light pitting beneath. The frame is lovely retaining 99% restored vibrant color case-hardening with the familiar light H-grade borderline engraving and makers name; the triggerguard shows excellent blue as well. The round knob pistolgrip buttstock rates excellent as professionally refinished with evidence of a repaired crack at left and right of top tang; it seems to have been effective and the stock seems sound and will not flex. The splinter forend is in a similar state of condition and both show perfectly chased checkering. The length of pull to the grooved hard rubber buttplate is 14 1/8” with drops of 1 5/8” and 3” (although the factory letter indicates 2 3/4”, the stock appears original in all respects). The safety is non-automatic and two of the screws show some light slot damage…they are not quite regulated and clearly someone with an incorrect width blade attempted to turn them. The gun locks up tightly with the top lever still right of center and the gun seems to operate properly mechanically. The included factory letter verifies the configuration and shows shipment in September of 1925 to W. R. Burkhard Co. (St. Paul Minn.). Really an excellent as-restored Super Fox that should be taken back afield for some waterfowl bustin in the fall seasons. (37034-6) (C&R)

Lot # 393 (Sale Order: 393 of 824)      

serial #10011, .50 cal. percussion, 21 1/2” barrel with a bright near excellent bore except for some light pitting in the grooves near the breech. This carbine retains plenty of finish with crisp markingS throughout. The barrel is predominately a plum brown with stronger blue colors near the muzzle with full colors on the triggerguard and receiver furniture.

Burnside Fifth Model Percussion Carbine

Lot # 395 (Sale Order: 395 of 824)      

serial #14706, 54 cal. percussion, 21” barrel with an oxidized and pitted bore. This is a well used carbine with good mechanical function and crisp lock up. The barrel is now an even brown patina with some oxidation present. The frame, hammer, breechblock and tang are a mottled mix of gunmetal gray and brown. The remaining parts have also taken on a smooth brown patina with a few areas of gunmetal gray seen. The buttstock rates about fair to good with moderate handling marks and some lightly cleaned burn damage on the wrist by the left side of the receiver. The wood was lightly refinished in far past probably to fix the burn mark which has left the stock furniture proud OF the wood. The forend rates fair with heavy wear along the top left that has left the edge scalloped from continuous handling. This fine old gun has seen some solid use in the last century and makes one wish the “gun could talk” to reveal its past. (86983-5) {ANTIQUE}

Lot # 396 (Sale Order: 396 of 824)      

serial #47863, 45 Colt, 6” barrel with a lightly oxidized bore. This revolver saw some use during its life cycle but survived much better than most of the Constabulary guns. The one piece frame retains about 70% blue finish with the backstrap worn to gunmetal gray, the frontstrap now an even brown patina, thinning finish on the topstrap and the cleaned pitting on both sides of the frame near the grip frame.

The cylinder has about 90% left with high edge wear. The checkered hard rubber grips are in wonderful condition with light wear that is mostly visible on the Rampant Colts. The serial numbers on the frame, cylinder and loading gate correctly match and the appropriate inspector, model and U.S. markings are present. Most of the 1902’s were shipped with a Rampant Colt in a circle but few such as this one were not. This is a first-rate example of these hefty revolvers. (87008-13) {C&R}

serial #150511, 30-40 Krag, 24” barrel with an excellent bore. The barrel is primarily a mottled dark gray-pewter faded blue with the receiver and magazine cover showing a mottled oil-quenched case-hardened finish; the magazine gate with a fading polished blue. The bolt body and handle are bright with very good pale fire-temper blue on the extractor; the triggerguard is a bright pewter patina. The rifle is very Seymour Griffin-like overall, the straight grain walnut stock rating about excellent with only sparse very light handling marks here and there and an un-engraved shield-shaped monogram plate along the toeline. The rifle is checkered with bordered grip panels which meet atop the wrist, the forend in a wrap-around pattern. There is a flared left-side cheekpiece, ebony forend tip, hard rubber pistolgrip cap, round quick-detach, very G&H-like swivel studs; the swivels are present and grooved steel buttplate for a 14” length of pull. The arm is sighted with a Redfield banded sporting front ramp with wood grain-like stippling on the face of the ramp. The hood is present over the brass bead sight, the rear bridge with a Lyman 48 receiver sight. The trigger has been honed and is quite good. Overall a super vintage Krag sporter that, while unmarked, was clearly made by one of the best of the between-the-wars masters. (37022-80) {ANTIQUE} [Mark Benenson Collection]

Custom Norwegian Model 1894 Krag Magazine Sporting Rifle Of Famed Shooter Frantz Rosenberg

Lot # 398 (Sale Order: 398 of 824)      

(NSN) 6.5x55, 29 1/2” barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain about 95% original blue, the loss due primarily to even fading and some wear on the triggerguard. The bolt body and receiver races remain bright, as does the bolt knob, the extractor with some nice pale fire temper blue. The rifle is stocked classic style in European walnut with checkered grip and wrap-around forearm patterns, the stock rating very good to excellent overall. There is a bone gripcap and a grooved bone buttplate for a 14” length of pull. The right side of the butt has a circular silver monogram plate affixed with a single brad which is engraved “F.Rosenberg” and alloy content coded “830S” (Scandinavian silver has a millesimal fineness of 830). The rifle retains its original front sight on square block, adjustable for windage, and has an aperture sight mounted to the striker shroud on the bolt. A couple of the screw heads show some slot damage and there are some circumferential scratches around the screw recesses in the triggerguard. Frantz Munch Rosenberg was a Norwegian sport shooter and author. He was born in Oslo and competed in trap shooting at the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm and wrote numerous articles on shooting and hunting and authored Big Game Shooting in British Columbia and Norway. The silver plate and Mr. Benenson’s notes are the only connections to Mr. Rosenberg, Mark having purchased the arm from Karl Hanevik at the Las Vegas gun show in 2000, according to his notes. Really a nicely executed hunting rifle with an uncharacteristically long barrel and connection to a famous Norwegian hunter and shooter. (37022-2){C&R}[Mark Benenson Collection]

Springfield Armory Model 1903A1 National Match Model Of 1938 Rifle

Lot # 399 (Sale Order: 399 of 824)      

serial #1520095, 30-06, 24” 2-38 dated SA-marked barrel with crisp star gauge mark at the muzzle showing a bright about excellent bore showing the very beginnings of some sparsely scattered frosting here and there. The rifle has been loosely converted to U.S.M.C. Model 1941 configuration with the addition of steel target blocks on the receiver and barrel, the handguard appropriately relieved, the bolt handle retaining its original configuration. The barrel has toned to a plum brown with the receiver a mottled pewter and faded gray-brown, the honed races still mostly bright, showing the remnants of the right-race center punch mark 1 1/2” to the rear of the receiver ring. The bolt handle is primarily a pewter gray patina with some light oxidation, the bolt body is mostly bright with some light oxidation staining retaining strong armory polish, it is un-marked, with striker and shroud showing a dark oil-quenched blue. The bottom metal has toned to a dull pewter patina, the floorplate with cleaning and tool marks; the front band shows remnants of overall light pitting. The “C” stock rates very good to very good plus with much original finish and minor handling marks and dings, the butt with three more-prominent bruises. The left stock flat shows a crisp “SA/GAW/(ordnance wheel)” cartouche and the circled “P” firing proof on the pistolgrip face. The handguard is devoid of finish and was neatly milled for scope base and ring clearance. The front sight base holds a small brass bead Lyman sight with the receiver ring mounted with a Lyman 48 receiver sight. Overall a very attractive National Match rifle that likely shoots as good as it looks, with the added bonus of being scope-ready awaiting only an appropriate Lyman or Unertl telescopic sight.

Composite French New Model 1763 Heavy Flintlock Musket

Lot # 400 (Sale Order: 400 of 824)      

About .72 cal, 44 1/2” barrel with a lightly oxidized bore. The metal surfaces show an overall plum brown coating of smoke or tobacco residue beneath which is an armory bright pewter patina, there are sparse smatterings of light oxidation present. There are some light arsenal markings on the left barrel radius which are not fully legible, one appears to be the number “68” beneath a fleur-de-lis along with what is likely a partial “St. Etienne” marking and the tang is clearly engraved “1763”. The lockplate is a similar dull gray patina showing some minor pitting on the cock. It is clearly “Charleville” engraved beneath the remnants of an original “St. Etienne” arsenal stamp. There is a brass blade atop the front band and under lug for bayonet mounting, the barrel bands are all a lightly oxidized brown patina as is the triggerguard and its bow, showing light pitting. The buttplate shows a bit more pitting, as is typical and the sideplate is the new 1763 pattern. The stock rates very good plus and is unmolested with overall minor dings and handling marks from the years, there are a couple minor chips around the lockplate and a minor chip at the rear of the barrel tang. There is a capital “V” inspectors marking on the left stock flat and the number “36” has been neatly incise-carved into the wrist to the rear of the barrel tang. “PC” is stamped on the sideplate and on the toeline of the stock directly to the rear of the triggerguard tang. Additionally “No. 1” is stamped on the comb line directly in front of the buttplate tang, the left side of the butt shows another partial stamping either “VW” or an upside down “MA”, unfortunately only the M or W is visible, the other character is only partial and therefore illegible. What is likely the original ramrod is present and the lock is crisp and mechanically functional and the sling swivels are intact. An added bonus with this arm is what appears to be its original bayonet. The bayonet features a 13 7/8” blade with one third length face flute and deep full-length back flutes. It is 1 1/8” wide at its rear-most section. There are deeply impressed touch marks, one appears to be a star, one is illegible, the other appears to be a letter beneath a crown. The bayonet has the same coating of smoke also with some minor oxidation present and gunmetal gray toning. It has an L-shape mortised without any provision for locking ring, it fits this musket precisely. The gun appears to be in original flint in every respect. Really a very nice, very convincing example overall of a very clean looking “Charleville” style musket, assembled very many years ago, but not from the period of the American Revolution, with an original bayonet with some very nice markings. (36623-52) {ANTIQUE}
