Excellent Remington Model 1871 Army Rolling Block Pistol

Excellent Remington Model 1871 Army Rolling Block Pistol

Lot # 5 (Sale Order: 5 of 1059)      

serial #1751, 50 CF, 8" round barrel with a bright near excellent bore. This is a wonderful rolling block pistol, the barrel retaining about 95% original blue showing some handling marks and areas faintly thinning to gray patina under bright light. There is a small repair behind the front sight, perhaps to re-secure it, but it is very well done and unobtrusive. The frame retains about 90% bold case-hardened colors, still present on the straps, with some areas thinning and toning to a pleasant gray patina, a small spot of oxidation staining at the high edge on the left side and some scattered minor freckling. The hammer and breech block are bright while the other small parts retain almost all of their brilliant fire blue and straw colors. The stock screws show some light slot wear but the frame screw heads are clean. The left side address and patent dates are crisp as are the proper "P" and "S" proofs. The smooth walnut grip and forend remain in near excellent condition showing just a patch of moderate dings on the base, some more minor scattered handling marks and strong original finish. The left side grip is stamped with a wonderful crisp "CRS" cartouche. Both tangs are numbered "1751" while the upper tang and grip are assembly-numbered alike "1553". Really a wonderful pistol for the U.S. martial or Remington collector. (139100-936) {ANTIQUE} [Richard "Stretch" Kennedy Collection]

Rare Early Colt Four-Inch Wells Fargo Model Percussion Revolver

Rare Early Colt Four-Inch Wells Fargo Model Percussion Revolver

Lot # 6 (Sale Order: 6 of 1059)      

serial #14647, .31 cal, 4" octagon barrel with a moderately oxidized bore showing good rifling throughout. This revolver is described and pictured on pages 61 and 68 of Colt's Pocket '49 It's Evolution Including the Baby Dragoon & Wells Fargo by Jordan & Watt. The authors describe it as likely one of the first 4" barrel revolvers produced (of the only about 125 made) and also the only known example with a left hand-stamped barrel address. The metal surfaces are mostly a mottled gray-brown patina showing some scattered light tool marks and areas of light pitting that show evidence of an old cleaning. The screw heads show some light slot wear and the left hand-stamped two line New York barrel address and "COLTS PATENT" on the frame remain legible. The stagecoach cylinder scene remains mostly visible with areas obscured by old pitting and the "COLTS PATENT" on the cylinder is rather soft. The brass backstrap and correct round triggerguard retain strong silver finish with areas worn to pale ocher patina and some scattered light dings. The smooth one-piece walnut grip is un-numbered and remains in very good condition showing a bit of older-added finish, a repaired 3" crack along the right side, a few scattered smaller cracks and dings. The arbor is a later part with grease groove numbered "4364" and the wedge is numbered "03971", but the remaining serialized parts are matching. Barrel-to-frame fit is solid and the action seems to function well mechanically with good timing and lockup. This revolver has seen some honest use but remains a fine and very rare published example. (138737-45) {ANTIQUE} [Dr. Louis C. March Jr. Collection]

Cased Colt Model 1860 Army Percussion Revolver

Cased Colt Model 1860 Army Percussion Revolver

Lot # 7 (Sale Order: 7 of 1059)      

serial #106977, .44 cal, 8" round barrel with a moderately oxidized bore showing bright areas and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this 1863-made revolver have mostly toned to a pleasant mottled gray-brown patina showing some spots of scattered pinprick pitting and some tool marks around the wedge. The frame and loading lever still show some strong colors remaining in the protected areas. The New York barrel address and "COLTS PATENT" on the frame are clearly legible, the cylinder scene is still quite nice and the parts are stamped with clear military sub-inspector markings. The revolver is equipped with iron backstrap and cut for shoulder stock and the brass triggerguard has toned to a medium goldenrod patina showing some light dings near the toe. The smooth one-piece walnut grip is ink-numbered to the gun and remains in very good condition showing some old light chips around the edges, dings, overall smoothing and faint remnants of cartouches on either side. All of the serialized parts are matching including the wedge and the action seems to function well mechanically with a crisp hammer, solid timing and lockup. Included is a rather nicely-made older mahogany case lined with heavy cotton twill. The case shows a few old small chips and drying cracks scattered about while the lining has some spots of moderate staining and one separator has come loose. The revolver rests upside down in the case and the compartments hold a selection of period accessories including a partially full japanned tin of Eley caps, small Federal Eagle powder flask, rather well-used "COLTS PATENT" dual cavity bullet mould and an assortment of lead projectiles. An honest martial Colt made during the height of the Civil War and no doubt used in the conflict. (138726-10) {ANTIQUE} [Dr. Louis C. March Jr. Collection]

Very Rare Colt Super 38 Semi-Auto Pistol with Factory Error Marking

Very Rare Colt Super 38 Semi-Auto Pistol with Factory Error Marking

Lot # 10 (Sale Order: 10 of 1059)      

serial #40224, 38 Super, 5'' barrel with an excellent bore. The metal surfaces of this 1947 pistol retain about 98% original factory blue with some scattered light freckling, light handling marks and slight signs of operational use. It features the very early matte finish on the top radius of the slde, the thumb safety toning slghtly to plum. The brown checkered Coltwood grips are about excellent with sharp points and no real blemishes to speak of. This 2nd Model is equipped with fixed sights and is interestingly marked ''Government Model'' on the right of the receiver above the serial number. This marking was to only be used on the .45 caliber frames, apparently this message was not passed down to the machinist and he marked around 300 guns incorrectly. According to Sheldon's book Colt's Super .38: The Production History, he states he has only observed five of these guns and possibly the highest serial number produced with this anomaly is 40320. Serial number 40012 is pictured in the book and serial numbers 40001, 40114 and 40215 are mentioned by the author, giving this gun further provenance and putting it well within the known range. Colt shipping records indicate that a very high percentage of these guns between the 40000-43000 serial range were shipped overseas, pistols that remained in the US have always been very difficult to procure. Included is the original purple hinge-top box in about fair condition, the ''Colt Automatic Pistol Super.38'' label is in very good shape, the remainder of the box shows worn areas on the edges, a 1'' piece missing from the side of the lid, two separated corners and scattered handling marks. Inside the box is the original fold-out manual and shooting suggestions pamphlet. A provided factory letter indicates this gun was part of a five gun shipment to the George Worthington Company in Cleveland, Ohio in June of 1947. (229281-2) {C&R}

Fine Custom Winchester Model 42 Pigeon Grade Skeet Shotgun

Lot # 20 (Sale Order: 20 of 1059)      

serial #1433, .410 bore, 28'' plain barrel choked skeet with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces on this very attractive custom-engraved shotgun retain about 98 to near 99% post-engraving blue, there being the remnants of some very light pinprick pitting on the magazine support extension and a few spots on the receiver, they are very unobtrusive and one must really look for them. The carrier and bolt show only very light operational wear with most of their vibrant engine turning still brilliant. The arm is engraved loosely in a factory No. 5 pattern with gun dogs left and right, along with quail, all inlaid in gold, this against a meadow backdrop and flanked by excellent quality open flowing scroll with background punch-dot shading. The magazine tube support is properly engraved with a standing pigeon. The checkered straight grip walnut buttstock and semi-beavertail extended forend rate very good with the expected light dings and handling marks that come from the years but with crisp checkering showing only light wear. The arm mounts solidly and seems to function well mechanically and is a very faithful custom facsimile of a high grade Model 42 Pigeon Grade Skeet. (3B8963-72) {C&R} [Tim Falvey Collection]

Moore's Patent Firearms Co. Single Action Belt Revolver

Moore's Patent Firearms Co. Single Action Belt Revolver

Lot # 21 (Sale Order: 21 of 1059)      

serial #3398, 32 RF, 6" octagon barrel with a good bore showing scattered light pitting and strong rifling throughout. The barrel and cylinder of this attractive revolver have mostly toned to a pleasant medium gray patina showing a few spots of minor pinprick pitting, some tiny dings and perhaps a few streaks of original blue along some areas of the barrel. The Moore patent marking along the barrel is crisp and clear and the trigger and hammer have toned to a darker gray patina. The brass frame is very nice and is extensively embellished with fine factory foliate scrollwork and punch-dot shading. The frame retains perhaps 90% original silver finish taking on a pleasing tarnish throughout with the high edges worn to ocher brass. The smooth one-piece walnut grip remains in very good plus to near excellent condition retaining most of its original varnish with just some flaking along the bottom edges, light dings and handling marks. What appears to be an original, or at least a very old period replacement, ejector rod is present, barrel-to-frame fit is solid and the action functions crisply with solid timing and lockup. These popular revolvers were strong competitors to those of Smith & Wesson but were not made in great numbers due to the eventual lawsuit brought against them. This is a fine example, rather hard-to-find in this state of condition. (139040-35) {ANTIQUE}

Dutch Percussion Target Pistol by Beaumont

Dutch Percussion Target Pistol by Beaumont

Lot # 23 (Sale Order: 23 of 1059)      

.44 cal, 11" octagon barrel with an oxidized bore still showing evident rifling throughout. The barrel of this attractive pistol retains perhaps 20% original blue mostly toned to a deep brown patina with moderate freckling scattered throughout. The barrel flat features silver inlay maker's mark reading "DE BEAUMONT MAESTRICHT" and there are Belgian proofs on the underside of the barrel, not unusual given the city's close proximity to Belgium. The remaining metal surfaces are a mix of gray-brown and silvery case-hardened patina, the hammer and upper tang still showing some wisps of original colors. The lockplate very neatly follows the raised contours of the stock and the metal surfaces are tastefully embellished with some light foliate scrollwork. The breech and tang are both numbered "1", likely indicating this pistol once belonged to a pair and there is an assembly number "2420" on the underside of the barrel that matches a penciled number on the interior of the stock. The checkered walnut stock remains in very good plus condition showing a small smoothed-over shallow chip on the right edge, scattered light dings and handling marks but still maintains a very attractive appearance. The lock still functions crisply. Really a fine European percussion target pistol. (138737-469) {ANTIQUE} [Dr. Louis C. March Jr. Collection]
