This is a lovely and rare high-grade smallbore Ithaca double ejectorgun, one of only 14 such guns built by the Ithaca Gun Company in this grade. The barrels retain about 95% original blue, the loss is due primarily to light and even fading showing pewter at the muzzles and above the forend at the carry point. The barrel is factory equipped with dual ivory target beads and shows light bands of engraving at the breeches. The New Ithaca Double frame shows open Grade 4 Ithaca-style scroll engraving with game birds left and right and retains about 98% original color case-hardening, muted slightly at the carry point of the frame. The lightly engraved triggerguard retains perhaps 60% original blue and the factory single selective trigger retains strong original gold plate showing only light wear. The checkered deluxe English walnut pistolgrip buttstock and splinter style forend rate very fine to perhaps near excellent, the forend closer to fine. The butt exhibits lovely grain figure and has small handling marks or light dings sparsely scattered with crisp fleur-de-lis ribbon checkering and an un-engraved shield-shaped monogram plate along the toeline. The forend shows a bit more wear with a small sliver missing along its left upper edge, its ebony tip insert is intact, with the remnants of colors on the latch and iron. The length of pull to the original grooved hard rubber buttplate is 14'' with drops of 1 11/16'' and 2 7/8''. The gun features factory single selective trigger, ejectors and cocking indicators. The gun functions well mechanically, is tight on-face with the top lever still right of center.

serial #453707, 12 ga., 32'' ventilated rib barrels choked a light full in both with bright excellent mirror-like bores. This is another beautiful New Ithaca Double in a high state of condition which appears to have seen very little or perhaps no use.

The factory ventilated rib features dual ivory beads and there are light bands of engraving at the breeches. The Grade 5 frame shows typical loose open flowing floral and foliate Ithaca scroll with game birds left and right and the American Eagle on belly of frame with Ithaca's Made in USA legend and company address. The triggerguard retains all of its original blue and is neatly engraved as well with the factory selective trigger remaining bright with nice checkering on its face. The checkered English walnut capped pistolgrip buttstock and full beavertail style forend rate excellent with a very light handling mark here or there and crisp fleur-de-lis ribbon checkering patterns; there is a very tiny drying crack at the rear edge of the forend. The length of pull from the trigger to the factory Hawkins recoil pad is 14 3/4'', with drops of 1 7/16'' and 2'', the pad having collapsed from the weight of the shotgun and the years. The arm is equipped with single selective trigger, ejectors and cocking indicators and locks up tightly and is on-face with the top lever still right of center. The light burnishing on the breeches of the barrels remains evident and there are scant, very light drag marks on the standing breech from very light ejector rub from the years. The gun seems to function well mechanically and is a beautiful investment-grade example of a very seldom-encountered ventilated rib NID in trap configuration. (3E9558-20) {C&R} [Senator Frederic C.

Extremely Fine and Equally Rare Wesson Firearms Company Double Hammergun Extremely Fine and Equally Rare Wesson Firearms Company Double Hammergun

Extremely Fine and Equally Rare Wesson Firearms Company Double Hammergun

Lot #10 (Sale Order 10 of 600)

serial #206, 12 ga., 30" damascus barrels with bright excellent bores. These shotguns are of very high quality and were by far the most expensive American double shotguns that were being produced at the time. This example shows tasteful scroll and border engraving executed by the Gustave Young shop. In addition to the frame the gun features Young's scroll on the hammers, barrel rib extension, triggerguard, buttplate and forend metal. The serial number is engraved on the lower tang and stamped on the underside of the barrels on the forend lug. Underside of barrels also show the intertwined monograms of D.B. Wesson and another that appears to be initials "SJW", however the barrel rib is unmarked. The condition of this particular example is very fine with very good damascus pattern showing the entire length of the barrels. The frame shows 90% original color case-hardened finish which is brilliant in protected areas and slightly more subdued in the more exposed areas. The triggerguard shows about 70% original blue finish with the balance showing a pleasing smooth brown patina. The checkered walnut buttstock and forend are of beautifully figured American black walnut and rate excellent with perhaps 95% original finish remaining and with strong checkering. The right side of the forend at the breech is missing a thin sliver at the top, it is minor and easily missed. The fit is extremely tight, the head of the barrel wedge fits into a recess in the wedge escutcheon perfectly just as the rib extension fits into the top of the frame. Wesson made only 219 of these guns, this being #206 puts it right near the end of the production. The gun comes with an old leather trunk style case which is unmarked and in about good condition. This is a very fine example of these lovely American double guns which should appeal as much to collectors of fine doubles as it should to the Smith & Wesson collector.

The included original gutta percha case rates very good plus showing a few light dings around the edges, a neat small repair to the bottom right corner of the base, the top right molded eagle motif has been painted with an ocher paint and one of the hinges is a little loose. The molded motifs are otherwise crisp and intact and the interior is lined with dark green baize, the embossed lid lining showing a little minor staining and the base showing some light flaking and scuffs. The case also contains a selection of vintage blank cartridges in very good condition. A very good second quality arm with a rather nice case. (13B9474-15) {ANTIQUE} [Dr. John W.

Exceptional Bernhard Merkel Double Rifle Two Barrel Set Exceptional Bernhard Merkel Double Rifle Two Barrel Set

Exceptional Bernhard Merkel Double Rifle Two Barrel Set

Lot #20 (Sale Order 20 of 600)

serial #6084, 9.3x74R (9.3x74.5R) and 8x57JR, 24 1/2'' Krupp Stahl barrels and 24 1/2 Krupp Laufstahl barrels, all showing bright excellent bores. The barrels both retain about 98% original maker rust blue, the original set of barrels, marked by Bernhard Merkel, and a latter set of barrels built by Emil Adam, Berlin, and so-marked. Each set show nice light borderline engraving at the breech end on the Greener crossbolt extension, one proved in 1929, the latter set in 1936. The scalloped sideclipped boxlock frame shows handsome tight flowing scroll in near full coverage retaining perhaps 95% original color case-hardening, most of which is quite vivid, fading in the rounded carry area of the frame. The breech bolsters atop each side flat have very pleasing geometric decoration, also surrounding the hinge pin screws and continuing atop the top lever. The triggerguard is horn and rates excellent showing a minor crack through its front leading edge just above its retaining screw and the top lever has silver inlaid chiseled initials ''RE'', or perhaps their reciprocal. The checkered round knob pistolgrip buttstock rates very good to fine with the light handling marks and dings one would expect from the years, the splinter forend is similar showing perhaps a bit more wear. The butt has a nice rounded left side shadowline cheekpiece, faceted grasping area, pinched comb and tiny diamond-shaped horn inlays to the rear of each stock cheek; the forend has a nice horn tip inlay as well. The wood may have been refinished many years ago as the metal is proud over all around the periphery of the frame to buttstock, if so it was masterfully done and all of the edges remain sharp, as-does the checkering. The rifle was fitted with a Jostam recoil pad during the period of use giving a 14 1/4'' length of pull to the front trigger. The arm features extractors, dual single set triggers, non-automatic safety and pin-style cocking indicators. Lockup is dual under bites with Greener crossbolt and both sets of barrels lock up tightly and are on-face. Both sets of barrels feature a nicely matted rib which raises at the front to support simple bead sights on each, with single standing u-notch rears. Additionally each set of barrels features maker-installed dual claw bases, three of each on both sets of barrels to accommodate the two telescopic sights included with the arm. One set of barrels is marked in riband ''Bernhard Merkel Suhl'', the second set of barrels marked ''Emil Adam Berlin''. The two included scopes are one Carl Zeiss Zielacht telescopic sight with heavy three post German reticle and excellent optics and a W&H Seibert Jaguar 4X telescopic sight with heavy three post reticle and very good plus to near excellent optics as well. The Zeiss rates very good plus with much original blue, the Seibert showing some oxidation on the objective lens and is toning to a gray patina. The ensemble comes cased in a very nice leather bound luggage-style case with brass corners, dual straps and green baize interior fitted for each of the components. There is a brass monogram plate on the lid engraved ''GL''. The gun seems to function well mechanically and is very attractive and truly very versatile with its combination of barrels and dual scopes. Clearly both makers, Merkel and Adams, were gunsmiths of quite some talent. A very handsome, investment-grade arm that can still be taken afield as-intended.

Custom Griffin & Howe Winchester Model 54 Bolt Action Rifle Custom Griffin & Howe Winchester Model 54 Bolt Action Rifle

Custom Griffin & Howe Winchester Model 54 Bolt Action Rifle

Lot #21 (Sale Order 21 of 600)

serial #19175, 270 Win, 24'' barrel with a bright excellent bore. The barreled action retains about 95-97% G&H blue, the loss due primarily to even fading, more prominent toward the front half of the barrel. The bolt body retains lovely uniform cross-hatch burnishing, as does the extractor, remaining bright on the receiver ways and magazine follower. The bolt knob shows some light toning to pewter on its sharp edges. The bottom metal shows more wear and is primarily a plum brown overall with toning to pewter gray on the bow, with some scattered light oxidation and a few light handling marks. The G&H-style English walnut stock rates excellent with a generous rounded left side shadowline cheekpiece and the signature bone forend tip and blued steel gripcap with unmistakable G&H architecture throughout. The stock shows a minor handling mark here or there but they are unobtrusive and it features wraparound checkering patterns at both grip and forearm with mullered borders, flawlessly executed with a couple dings within, the silver oval monogram plate along the toeline is neatly engraved a ''ESJ''. Rifle features a G&H style sling swivels (included) and has been fitted with a nice engraved checkered steel trapdoor buttplate for a 13 3/4'' length of pull. The rifle features a Lyman gold bead front sight, Lyman No. 6 dual leaf folding rear sight and a bolt shroud-mounted aperture sight professionally fitted. The left side of the action has a Griffin & Howe quick detach single lever telescopic base, used by G&H for only two years, 1927 and 1928, when it was supplanted by the double lever mount. There is a Zeiss Dialyt 2 3/4X telescopic sight mounted with post and crosshair reticle and excellent optics. The scope itself rates very fine showing just some light wear and even fading with a bit of flaking around the brass lens keepers. The barrel is not Griffin & Howe marked nor are there any other internal markings on the stock, but a detailed study of the arm leaves no doubt as to its maker and Mr. Mike Petrov himself has mentioned more than once that most G&H rifles were marked, but not all, especially in that ''depression-era'' term when G&H were doing ''budget'' customizations to keep the rack full. A very classic precursor to the Model 70 that would've made Jack O'Connor proud to own. (3B9354-11) {C&R} (2500/3000)

Custom Fabrique Nationale High-Power Sporting Rifle

Lot #23 (Sale Order 23 of 600)

serial #11993, 243 Win, 22'' sporter contoured barrel with a bright excellent bore. This lovely rifle is masterfully executed and built on a 1948 FN commercial large ring Mauser action. The barrel retains about 97% excellent quality original blue with light muzzle wear and a few minute handling marks. The balance of the metal is French gray finished with the receiver and bottom metal engraved in an intertwining conifer needle and pinecone motif in full coverage with the detachable floorplate showing a leaping 10-point buck against a wooded backdrop. The bolt body and extractor have been very nicely engine turned showing virtually no wear. The bolt handle is identically engraved with the pear-shaped knob showing raised-dot grasping surfaces and its bottom neatly drilled, lightweight-style. The rifle is stocked Monte Carlo style in a nice grade of English walnut and features exceptionally executed wraparound skip-line checkering with thin ribbon and carved scroll flourish decoration. The stock itself rates excellent with a few very light dings and a flared left side cheekpiece, generous recurving ebony forend tip and a steel skeleton style buttplate, engraved identically as the balance of the arm, with neatly checkered center panels giving a 13 3/8'' length of pull. The pistolgrip is teardrop-shaped and has an engraved French gray cap with a standing pronghorn antelope. The bolt stop thumbpiece has been removed and an elongated tail added at its rear giving a very trim profile while maintaining easy release of the bolt. There are no sights but the rifle is mounted with a pair of steel Buehler bases and 1'' scope rings, engraved identically as the balance of the arm, and an adjustable commercial trigger and low scope safety are fitted. The rings mount a Kollmorgen Bear Cub 6X telescopic sight with crosshair reticle and excellent optics, the scope itself rating excellent. A fabulously-executed and very attractive sporting rifle in a versatile, light recoiling caliber, clearly set up for bean field deer or antelope.

Fine Springfield 1922 M1 Sporting Rifle Fine Springfield 1922 M1 Sporting Rifle

Fine Springfield 1922 M1 Sporting Rifle

Lot #24 (Sale Order 24 of 600)

serial #19462, 22 LR, 24 1/2'' Springfield Armory barrel with a bright excellent bore. This very fine rifle appears very much as though it is the work of either Griffin & Howe or perhaps Seymour Griffin himself, given the architecture of the stock, the contour of the ejection port, comb flutes and the stock embellishments. The metal surfaces of the barreled action retain perhaps 95-97% very good quality blue, the loss due to even fading and some toning to plum. The front portion of the bolt body remains bright with nice cross-hatched burnishing as-is seen on both G&H and Sedgley rifles of the period and the bolt knob has been neatly checkered on its top face, the underside flat and just slightly and checkered as well. The action races have been neatly honed bright and the edge of the receiver nicely engine-turned. The bottom metal retains perhaps 85% quality blue with flakes of light oxidation on the front extension and the bow of the guard. The checkered American walnut pistolgrip stock remains in the near excellent condition with just a few scattered light handling marks from the years. It features a G&H-style bone forend tip, blued steel pistolgrip cap and checkered steel buttplate with wraparound checkering patterns at both grip and forend. The rifle is sighted with a nice banded sporting ramp front with knurled hood, Lyman 48 rear and Carl Zeiss Zielklein telescopic sight mounted by a G&H single lever quick detachable scope base; both front ring of receiver and barrel are drilled and tapped for steel target blocks. The single lever base was very short-lived, replaced by the double lever in 1929; the scope has a post and crosshair reticle and very fine optics and rates excellent with only very light wear. The rifle is fitted with G&H-style quick detach sling swivels and a single original blued magazine is included. Looking very much like the depression-era ''remodeled'' rifles, there is a very neatly filled hole along the toeline just ahead of the sling swivel stud (as seen in Mr. Petrov's books on the subject) and a penciled number in the barrel channel which unfortunately is no longer legible. Serial numbers listed on both sides of this were NRA models, this serial number however was not located in any of S.R.S. records. A fine man-sized 22 rifle which no doubt shoots as good as it looks, clearly built by a maker who knew their business.

serial #8200027, 32-20 Win, 26 1/2 part octagon part round tapered Remington Arms Co. barrel with a bright very fine bore with strong rifling which shows a couple spots of scattered very light pitting in the grooves nearer the throat.

Minty Colt Army Special Double Action Revolver

Lot #26 (Sale Order 26 of 600)

serial #519688, 32-20 Win, 6'' barrel with a bright excellent, perhaps unfired, bore. This is a lovely revolver which appears very much unused, unfired since leaving the blue dome in 1925. The metal surfaces retain 99% plus original blue with no real wear noticeable save for a tiny ding on the left bottom edge of the triggerguard, the cylinder ring extremely light and barely breaching the blue. The bright-polished sides of the hammer are brilliant and largely unstained with a tiny fleck of oxidation on the right side of spur and vivid color case-hardening on the ejector rod head. If one looks hard there may be a small, very light handling mark here or there but they are missed at first glance and there is a small spot of box wear on the cylinder between two of the flutes. The checkered hard rubber Colt logo-monogram ''C'' grips are excellent with the right grip showing one small ding along its butt edge, they are oddly numbered to another gun but their fit is excellent. The arm comes in its original purple-tone paper-covered box, pencil-numbered to the gun on its underside, showing ''Official Police'' label on the lid with ''6 Colt Army Special Revolver .32-20'' on the body of the box. An appropriate boar bristle 32 caliber cleaning brush is included. An absolutely wonderful Army Special in the desirable .32-20 chambering from-which it would be very difficult to upgrade.

Exceptional Colt New Service Model 1917 Civilian Model Revolver

Lot #27 (Sale Order 27 of 600)

serial #335934, 45 ACP, 5 1/2'' barrel with a bright, likely unfired, bore. The metal surfaces on this superb pistol retain 99% of their original hasty wartime-era polish. The feathering around the front sight is strong and the bright polished sides of the hammer remain brilliant with a tiny bit of oxidation discoloration at the thumb spur. Very close scrutiny shows two very small specks of surface oxidation on the left side of the frame at the knuckle and another small speck at the left of the topstrap with perhaps another very tiny spot on the cylinder. There is no evident turn ring, the firing pin bushing remains immaculate with all of its original blue, as does the face of the forcing cone which still shows bare metal, the interior of the barrel with all of its original blue. The checkered walnut service style grips with silver Rampant Colt medallions rate excellent, they are un-numbered. The included factory letter shows shipment in July 1932 to Shapleigh hardware in St. Louis Missouri in a shipment of 500 guns, the finish mentioned as ''parkerized'', no doubt referring to the hasty wartime polished blue, which is clearly original on the revolver. An absolutely superb example overall from-which it would be very difficult to upgrade. (3B9645-22) {C&R} [Larry J. Cummings Collection] (2000/3000)

Cased Tranter Patent Revolver by Purdey Identified to Lt. Col. Archibald Campbell

Lot #34 (Sale Order 34 of 600)

serial #31055, 38 CF, 4 1/2" octagon barrel with a bright very good plus to near excellent bore showing a few scattered spots of minor oxidation and strong rifling throughout. This is a wonderful medium-sized double action Tranter patent revolver by the world-renowned Purdey firm identified to Lt. Col. Archibald Campbell Campbell, born Campbell Douglas, but later changed to Campbell Campbell after his father became the laird of Blythswood. The metal surfaces of the revolver retain about 90% plus original bright blue with most of the loss due to scattered fine flaking toning to a pleasant gray-brown patina, mostly along the triggerguard and left side of the frame, some minor high edge wear and a few light freckles. The cylinder and grip cap are toning to an attractive mild gray case-hardened patina, the cylinder showing some lovely bold colors throughout with some minor scattered freckling. The trigger, hammer and ejector rod all remain mostly bright showing a few errant freckles and the remaining small parts retain 95% brilliant fire blue. The metal surfaces are tastefully embellished with fine English scrollwork and bordering and the barrel rib is neatly engraved "JAS PURDEY. 314 1/2 OXFORD ST. LONDON." The checkered walnut grip remains in excellent condition retaining almost all of its original varnish, perhaps showing just a few light handling marks and retaining crisp checkering with nice mullered borders. The action seems to function well mechanically with solid timing and lock-up and the arm features some nice amenities for the time, including Tranter's patent pivoting ejector rod and rare cylinder-locking safety lever on the left side. The revolver includes its original leather-bound case with Purdey interior label and lid embossed "LT. COL. CAMPBELL / BLYTHSWOOD". The case rates very fine showing the expected scattered scuffs, handling marks and light wear along the straps. The interior is lined with red baize showing some scattered light mothing and some minor staining along the label. The case also holds a brass oiler, blued steel cleaning rod and a selection of more modern Remington 38 Short Colt cartridges. Born on February 22, 1835, Campbell was destined for military service and joined the military at the age of sixteen serving in the 79th Highlanders before transferring to the Scots Guards; Campbell served in the Crimean War and was badly injured. He reached the rank of lieutenant colonel before retiring in 1868 following the death of his father and thus assuming lairdship of Blythswood. After retiring from the Scots Guards he would serve as commanding colonel of the 3rd Volunteer Battalion Blythswood Rifles. He and his wife Augusta were staunch Conservatives and championed Conservative causes of the day and Campbell would serve in Parliament for one year in 1873 and then again from 1885-1892, the barony granted in 1880. Campbell was also an accomplished amateur scientist, constructing his own machines, conducting experiments and observations in the fields of astronomy, physics and aerodynamics to name a few and he became a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1907. He starting serving as aide-de-camp to Queen Victoria in 1894 and would pass away on July 8, 1908. The Blythswood barony itself became extinct in 1940 with the death of the 7th Baron Lieutenant Philip Archibald Douglas-Campbell in a car accident. A printout of some additional research is included. A wonderful British revolver ensemble with connections to this prominent Scottish noble family. (13D9585-1) {ANTIQUE} (5000/7000)

Very Fine U.S. Model 1836 Flintlock Pistol by Johnson

Lot #36 (Sale Order 36 of 600)

.54 cal, 8 1/2" barrel with a bright excellent bore. This is a very lovely pistol that appears to have seen no use.

The frizzen shows a few light strike marks, the lockplate is dated 1842 and the markings are crisp. The smooth walnut stock remains in excellent condition showing a few light handling marks and retaining almost all of its arsenal oil finish with wonderful crisp cartouches and small "H" on the left flat.

Desirable & Rare Sharps New Model 1859 Percussion Berdan Rifle

Lot #47 (Sale Order 47 of 600)

Description Update 03/23/2020: Barrel is matching the frame

serial #54994, .52 cal, 30" barrel with a partially bright bore showing some moderate oxidation and pitting nearer the breech and muzzle with otherwise good rifling. This is a solid honest rifle with all of the correct features including double set triggers, no lever locking catch and falls squarely within the proper serial number range of those rifles issued to Col. Hiram Berdan's First and Second Sharpshooter Regiments (54,374 to 57,567). The metal surfaces have mostly toned to a nice dark plum-brown patina overall showing a few scattered light dings and some sparsely scattered pinprick pitting. The action has toned more to a dark gray patina with some silvering along the high edges, a smattering of light dings or tool marks also along some high edges and a patch of vibrant colors still present in the protected areas around the hammer. The sub-inspector stamp on the barrel flat is no longer visible but the remaining markings are very nice and legible including the three-line barrel address, 1859 model designation, rear sight and frame markings. The inside of the patch box door shows the proper ordnance punch-dot. The smooth walnut stocks remain in very fine condition having taken on a handsome dark tone from the years and retaining excellent metal-to-wood fit. The stocks show the expected light dings and minor scuffs from the years, otherwise their appearance is really quite lovely and there is a faint remnant of an inspector's cartouche on the left side wrist. All original hardware is present, the pellet priming mechanism is intact, the action and set triggers all seem to function well mechanically. This is a very attractive Berdan Sharps showing honest use that would make an excellent addition to any U.S. martial collection. (13E9606-20) {ANTIQUE} (7000/9000)

There is an "X" inscribed along the toe line and the faintest ghost of a cartouche visible on the right flat. A correct ramrod is included and the action seems to function well mechanically.

Wonderful Underlever Hammerless Double Rifle by J.W. Newton & Co. of London Wonderful Underlever Hammerless Double Rifle by J.W. Newton & Co. of London

Wonderful Underlever Hammerless Double Rifle by J.W. Newton & Co. of London

Lot #49 (Sale Order 49 of 600)

Description Update 03/18/2020: Antique.

serial #8499, .577 BPE 2 3/4", 28" barrels with bright excellent bores. This is an extremely handsome and finely made London double express rifle featuring a Jones underlever on a hammerless boxlock action. The frame, lever and tangs are engraved in about 80% coverage with lovely tight English scroll and border work. Each side of the frame is engraved "J.W. Newton & Co." and the hand matted top rib of the barrel shows an open panel which is engraved "J.W. Newton & Co. London". The tops of the barrels are engraved with loading data "577 EXPRESS 2 3/4 IN SOLID CASE" on left barrel and "160GRS No. 6 POWDER 520 GRS BULLET" and the word safe is inlaid in gold on the top tang. The serial number is only found on the lower rib of barrels beneath the forend. The watertable show London view proofs and the bar has two recesses neatly milled, presumably to lighten the action. The stock shows lovely recessed checkered panels on the cheeks with beautifully formed dropper points and the forend has a forward mounted lever release which is fully engraved. The condition of the rifle is wonderful with the barrels retaining perhaps 90% thinning original blue finish overall with all markings remaining sharp and just one blemish on top and a couple small dings on the edge of the matted rib. The action shows about 75% faded original color case-hardened finish which still shows contrast on the sides with the front of the belly being silvery. The checkered pistolgrip buttstock and forend are of beautifully figured English walnut which shows rich color. The checkering on the full tang capped pistolgrip remains strong and clean as it does on the forend. The forend shows a wonderful panel of finer checkering within a tasteful thin border at the base near action. The stocks retain lots of original finish with just normal light handling marks. The rifle wears a solid rubber pad which has hardened over time and has some chipping at toe and heel. The rifle is sighted with a beaded blade removable front and single standing and four folding leaf express rear sight graduated from 100 to 500 yards. All five leaves show full coverage very fine scroll engraving. The rifle comes in its original brass trimmed leather trunk style case. The lid of the case bears a royal crest with lettering in Farsi along with three painted initials and "577 EXPRESS" painted in black with red drop shadow, the initials are in the same color pattern. The case includes a full complement of accessories including three rosewood handled turnscrews, finely crafted bullet mould with hollow tip insert, a brass Hawksley crimper, patch cutter, powder measure, a pewter oiler and what appears to be a bullet seater. The case is in very good to excellent condition with embossed leather covering fully intact and green baize lined interior is excellent. We have found very little about J.W. Newton & Co. and when they were active. The rifle weighs just a little over 10 lbs. and points nicely with a 14 1/4" length of pull. Further research will likely identify the crest which is likely an Indian Maharajah. This is a very fine, top quality rifle in a wonderful state of preservation and cased with its accessories.

Dschulnigg Over Under Sideplated Double Ejector Rifle

Lot #53 (Sale Order 53 of 600)

serial #1764, 375 H&H, 24'' Bohler Spezial Stahl barrels with bright excellent bores. The barrels retain about 98% original maker blue, showing some light muzzle wear and a bit of even fading. The arm is maker marked on the rib and shows light borderline engraving on the barrel bolsters and crossbolt extension. The frame and sideplates are a pleasing French gray with loose open flowing scroll on the flats with floral decoration on the bolsters. There is a bellowing stag game scene on the right sideplate with a bear and hound on the left, the belly of the frame with lovely open scroll and a standing moose vignette. The triggerguard retains all of its original blue as do the top lever and safety. The checkered capped pistolgrip buttstock rates about very fine, showing a few scattered light handling marks but with the varnish lightened in a splotchy pattern, perhaps water staining, the balance a rich walnut tone. The splinter forend and dual forend panels on the barrels rate very good with some light handling marks, the forend near overall checkered. The butt features a rounded left side shadowline cheekpiece, plastic gripcap and has a 13 7/8'' length of pull to the basket-weave horn buttplate which shows one small spot of insect damage at its toe. The barrels show dual under bites and dual Kersten locks and the arm is tight and on-face. The rifle features ejectors, double triggers and non-automatic safety. There is a lovely hand matted rib the full-length of the barrel raising to a sporting ramp which supports a single bead sight. The rear of the rib is raised ''quarter rib'' style and has a single standing u-notch rear sight. A very handsome double rifle in the most classic of African calibers, suitable for nearly anything on the planet. Proofed 1967 (3C9100-929) {C&R} [Richard ''Stretch'' Kennedy Collection] (5000/7000)

Prewar Merkel Model 220E Over Under Double Ejector Rifle

Lot #54 (Sale Order 54 of 600)

serial #22826, 7x57R (7mm Mauser rimmed), 25 1/2'' Boehler Stahl barrels with a very good lower bore which shows some oxidation frosting in the grooves near the muzzle, less-so nearer the throat, and a very fine upper barrel which also shows a very light bit of oxidation frosting in the grooves but less-so than the bottom tube. The barrels retain about 97% original blue, the loss due to even fading and some wear to pewter at the muzzles. They are maker marked with light engraving on the right barrel bolster, the left retailer marked ''Ernst Steigleder''. The nicely scalloped boxlock frame shows light sprays of excellent quality open scroll engraving and has toned to a silvery and tarnished pewter case-hardened patina and is maker marked on the belly of the frame. The checkered capped European walnut buttstock rates very fine as neatly refinished many years ago, with a slightly heavy coat of varnish, retaining the minor handling marks that come from a field-used arm, the left flat with a bit of flaking. The checkering was neatly chased at the time and the butt features a rounded left side shadowline cheekpiece with a horn pistolgrip cap and 14 1/4'' length of pull to the grooved horn Merkel-marked buttplate. The forend is similar showing a bit of oil staining where it meets the iron, each upper forend piece very good-fine. Features double triggers, the front a single set, pin-style cocking indicators, ejectors and non-automatic safety. The gun locks up tight and is Kersten crossbolted with a simple sporting ramp front with silver bead and a single leaf u-style notch rear on a quarter rib. The rifle is additionally maker equipped with dual claw bases which currently support a modern pair of 1'' steel rings mounting a Weaver K2.5E scope with post and crosshair reticle and bright excellent optics. Scope rates about very good with a number of scuffs and scratches. Proofed in February 1937, the gun seems to function well mechanically and is in an excellent chambering for North American big-game.

Scarce Colt New Service Revolver with Original Box

Lot #55 (Sale Order 55 of 600)

serial #323206, 38-40 WCF, scarce 4 1/2'' barrel with a mostly bright very fine bore which shows a bit of minor pitting for most of its length, with a circle of slightly more moderate pitting about 1'' from the muzzle. The metal surfaces retain about 97-98% original blue showing some light muzzle wear, high edge of cylinder toning and a bit of sharp edge and contact point wear, the straps remaining strong. There are spots of light oxidation scattered here and there, primarily about the surface of the cylinder, also with the expected very light scratches or handling marks that come from a lightly used arm, most are unobtrusive and not even evident under normal ambient light. The bright-polished sides of the hammer remain brilliant with only some very light oxidation staining in the area of the spur and the lanyard loop retains excellent original factory color case-hardening. The checkered hard rubber Colt logo grips rate excellent and are scratch-numbered to the gun on the interior, with a small crack at the rear edge of the right grip, it is tight. The top edge of the front sight may have been regulated during the period of use or it may have been dinged and has been dressed very slightly, but only just. The box is numbered to the gun in pencil on its underside and features an appropriate end label with barrel length and caliber. It rates about very good with the expected flecks and minor scuffs in the paper covering, the front edge of the box lid is not present and one quarter of the right edge is missing as well, but on the interior is an original cleaning brush and a ''Proper Ammunition'' brochure from Colts Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company. A very attractive 1925-made revolver in a slightly less common caliber with the nice uncommon short barrel length. (3B9645-7) {C&R} [Larry J. Cummings Collection] (3000/5000)

August Sauerbrey Scalloped Boxlock Vierling

Lot #56 (Sale Order 56 of 600)

serial #2127, 16 ga. by 8x57R by 5.6 Vierling, 26'' Krupp Laufstahl barrels marked Emil Kerner & Co. on their underside (Sauerbrey likely a retailer), showing bright about excellent bores, the right shotgun tube with a couple shallow dings near the muzzle and the large bore barrel showing a couple very sparsely scattered, very light pits. Barrels retain about 92-95% original blue, showing even fading, bit of muzzle loss, a small spot of lightly cleaned pitting at left barrel rib and at muzzle of rifle tube and a handful of small circular flakes of loss were some contaminant has removed the blue. The scalloped boxlock bolstered sideclip frame is a pleasing pewter-toned patina with exceptional tight scroll across the entire belly and up the front of the action. There are running rehbock right and a running boar left with geometric decoration on the frame bolsters, the top of the action neatly matted. The checkered round knob pistolgrip buttstock and splinter style forend rate very fine showing only some very light handling marks from the years. The pistolgrip is neatly faceted, the checkering with mullered borders, and there is a small checkered diamond at the rear of the upper tang, neatly intertwining with the two grip panels, appearing slightly later-done and perhaps camouflaging a small chip there that was repaired, if-so it is not detectable. The forearm shows perhaps a bit more wear with a few more marks within the checkering and has a nice horn tip insert. The horn triggerguard shows a small flake missing from its left leading edge and the beginning of a tight crack along a grain line in the horn, there is a circular horn insert on the bottom of the pistolgrip as well and the length of pull to the 3/4'' rifle pad is 15 1/2''. Features double triggers, each a single set, four pin-style cocking indicators, Greener style safety and top-mounted barrel selector. The top of the comb may have been slightly lowered many years ago as it is somewhat beefy, but certainly has been this way since the pad was put on during the period of use. The front sight is a simple bead, there is a flip-up u-notch rear when the rifle barrel is selected. There are offset maker installed dual claw bases which mount a Kahles Helia Super 4.2X telescopic sight with heavy 4-Plex German reticle and bright excellent optics. The 5.6 Vierling is very similar to the U.S. 22 Hornet although not interchangeable and the arm was proofed in 1942. Emil Kerner and Co are top-quality makers, and this is an absolutely lovely Vierling with some excellent quality tight flowing scroll, the very light chip in the triggerguard could be sanded away by someone who knew their business, reshaping the left and right to match.

Magnificent Carved and Engraved Savage Model 1899 Rifle Magnificent Carved and Engraved Savage Model 1899 Rifle

Magnificent Carved and Engraved Savage Model 1899 Rifle

Lot #57 (Sale Order 57 of 600)

Description Update 03/27/2020: Cracks left and right will flex

serial #13.559, 303 Savage, 26" part round part octagon barrel with a very good bright bore. The factory letter that accompanies this rifle shows it being delivered on December 21, 1900 to Enoch Tue, who was the factory engraver at the time for the Savage Arms Company. The factory letter does not mention any embellishments and actually states that the rifle was shipped with a round barrel. This is obviously an extremely high-grade rifle that Tue apparently took on as a freelance project. The engraving pattern is similar to Savages "F" grade engraving which features full coverage scroll with game scenes including the belly of the action. The engraving depicts a large walking bear on left flat with mountainous background, walking bull moose on the belly and two deer in panel scene on right, again with mountainous background. The entire top of the action is very finely stippled with a wedge of engraving leading back from the bolt. The carving of the stocks is truly the most spectacular part of this rifle, it is as fancy or fancier than the carving on Savage's Monarch guns, the most expensive guns they offered. The carving shows deep relied floral scroll with hearts and leaf motifs on forend and sides of wrist. The carved panel scenes on the stock cheeks are simply fabulous showing a dog chasing a deer in wooded scene right panel and a standing buck on the edge of a lake with trees on the shore and birds flying in the sky with mountains visible in the distance. This writer has personally examined perhaps a dozen carved Savage rifles and these scenes are simply a step above other carved guns. The buttplate features full coverage scroll engraving on the top tang with the rear face being finely stippled overall. The rifle shows a single gold band inlaid in the buttplate tang and the serial number is also filled in gold. This is really a spectacular rifle that would likely be a six-figure gun in a higher state of condition. The barrel retains about 70% original blue finish with some scattered areas of light surface oxidation present. The action is an even gray/brown patina and is free of pitting. The stocks retain perhaps 90% original finish. There is a repair at the toe of the buttstock utilizing an added piece walnut and there is a small stress crack at either side of the lower tang. These cracks are sound and could likely be made to disappear with a proper professional restoration. There has been no attempt to fix the cracks, they are small and don't affect the overall soundness of the stock. The pistolgrip is capped with a silver plate which is affixed with four small brads and is engraved "H.F. Zimmerman / Saquoit / NY.". Saquoit, New York is about 10 miles from Utica, one could surmise that Zimmerman and Tue knew one another and that is how this rifle came to exist. The buttstock and forend are both numbered "12667", the buttplate is numbered "13559". These numbers are reltively close and based on the way this rifle was ordered and built, there are many explanations for this. Upon reviewing the rifle we are certain people will be comfortable that this rifle is in the same configuration it has been since it was delivered to Zimmerman. A truly magnificent and unique, very high grade Savage rifle. (19622-13) {C&R) (20,000/30,000)

Lot #59 (Sale Order 59 of 600)

serial #336681, 44-40 WCF, 4 1/2'' barrel with a bright excellent, likely unfired, bore. The metal surfaces on this fine little short-barreled New Service retain about 98% plus original blue, the loss truly due only to sparsely scattered light flaked spots here and there, a few spots where light oxidation has caused very light pinprick pitting; overall unobtrusive with the lovely blue present on the gun. The factory polish and blue remains wonderful over all with the factory brush marks on the frame being quite prominent. The bright-polished sides of the hammer show only some light oxidation staining, primarily in the area of the thumb spur. A late revolver, still retaining some earlier features like the flat latch and straight-rear barrel, smooth trigger and u-notch rear sight. The arm is fitted with the checkered hard rubber Colt logo grips which are un-numbered but fit perfectly. The included factory letter shows shipment in February 1938 to Wolf & Klar of Fort Worth Texas for the WS Sporting Goods Co., the ''special notation'' reads ''Old-Style Rubber Stocks'' and verifies barrel length. A very desirable short-barreled 44 caliber New Service with some interesting features. (3B9645-47) {C&R} [Larry J. Cummings Collection] (3000/5000)

Fine Colt New Service Double Action Revolver

Lot #60 (Sale Order 60 of 600)

serial #333073, 44 Special/Russian, 5 1/2'' barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain perhaps 97% original blue, the loss is due to some muzzle wear and holster wear on the high edges of the cylinder, with a bit of sharp edge wear as well. The bulk of the loss is indeed on the cylinder, between the flutes, where it would normally lay in a drawer or perhaps contact a holster, there are scattered areas of small oxidation flecks but they are very light and unobtrusive, a few on the barrels right side, with the sparsely scattered light handling mark here or there. The bright-polished sides of the hammer show only light oxidation staining and the factory lanyard loop retains all of its color case-hardening. The checkered walnut grips with silver Rampant Colt medallions rate excellent, there is no discernible number, their fit is excellent. Appearing to have seen very little use, likely merely laying in a drawer, the firing pin bushing retains all of its original blue, the interior of the frame is very clean including the forcing cone area, the face of the cylinder a bit silvery. The included factory letter shows shipment in May 1936 to the Brown Roberts Hardware Company in Alexandria LA in the configuration shown. It was later returned to the factory in October 1937, perhaps a no-sell, and shipped to S.B. McMaster in Columbia South Carolina in February 1938, S.B.McMaster himself being a wealthy Columbia resident and descendent of Confederate Colonel Fitz William McMaster. ''S.B.'' being owner of the S.B. McMaster Sporting Goods Company. An interesting story accompanies the McMaster name. Their ancestral home The McMaster Mansion, was saved from Sherman's torch by 12 women of Columbia who had made Sherman welcome in their homes before the War. They appealed to him at his headquarters, Sherman then sending a Union guard to each of their houses to keep them safe from being burned. A very lovely revolver in its own right, in a very desirable caliber, still retaining very nice condition, with a very unusual dual-shipped letter. (3B9645-32) {C&R} [Larry J.

The pistol includes a proper concentric circle wood base naval magazine numbered to the gun and the body toned to a mottled gray-brown patina. The action seems to function well mechanically. A very nice Navy Luger for the military arms collector. (13B9100-991) {C&R} [Richard "Stretch" Kennedy Collection] (2000/3000)

Extremely Rare U.S. M1 Carbine with Experimental Stainless Steel Barrel by Winchester Extremely Rare U.S. M1 Carbine with Experimental Stainless Steel Barrel by Winchester

Extremely Rare U.S. M1 Carbine with Experimental Stainless Steel Barrel by Winchester

Lot #75 (Sale Order 75 of 600)

serial #7239045, 30 Carbine, 18" barrel with a bright excellent bore. This is an exceptionally rare carbine, with only one other known example. These late-war carbines were evidently used as a test bed for stainless steel barrels, Winchester having been familiar with the use of stainless steel on a small number of their commercial rifles prior to the war. The metal surfaces of the barrel rate very fine to near excellent showing a hint of minor freckling and some light marks from disassembly. As these arms were never martially accepted the barrel is unmarked behind the rear sight. The underside near the breech is stamped with a small "X" and lightly electro-penciled "OSR". The remaining metal surfaces retain about 98% original Parkerized finish showing some very light high edge wear and some spots toning to brown patina along the buttplate. The smooth walnut stock and handguard remain in excellent to near as-new condition showing just a couple of very light handling or storage marks. The stock inlet is properly marked with Winchester's small "W" and it retains 99% original arsenal oil finish also showing some very attractive grain figure. As one might expect, there is no firing proof present. The rifle is equipped with a Type I barrel band and otherwise correct late-war features and all appropriate parts are Winchester-marked. One Union Hardware magazine is included and the action seems to function well mechanically. These carbines were retained in the factory collection until being sold to R. J. Perry & Associates in 1975. Included with this example is the original Winchester shipping order No. 26732 dated November 22, 1975 made out to Roger J. Perry listing this carbine by serial number along with the following arms: M1 Garand rifles serial #'s 1033610 and 81905 and M1 Carbines serial #'s 7273010, 7278631, 7271074, 7263334 and 7266921. The letter is somewhat tender but intact. The other known example of these carbines that sold on the commercial market is also on this list, serial #7278631. Also included is a copy of the book War Baby! By Larry L. Ruth; page 327 regarding Winchester markings has a hand written note signed by the author and dated 1997 saying that this is (at that time) the only known example with a stainless steel barrel, purchased directly from the factory. There is one small discrepancy as he says the barrel is marked "ORD" possibly for "Office of Research and Development", likely the marking was misread as it is rather faint and to our eyes it reads "OSR", possibly "Office of Special Research" but this is just conjecture. In any event this is a wonderful example with solid provenance that would make an excellent addition to any advanced U.S. military or Winchester collection. (13C9635-1) {C&R} (7000/9000)

Impressive Eight Bore Single Barrel Hammergun by JW Tolley Limited

Lot #92 (Sale Order 92 of 600)

serial #9097, 8 bore, 42 3/8'' part octagon part round barrel with a lightly oxidized straight-rifled bore, showing minor pitting for most of its length, a spot or two which may be a bit more moderate. The barrel on this large and impressive 8-bore fowler shows contrasting gray and brown damascus twist pattern its full-length, with interspersed spots of light oxidation staining and perhaps the oddly scattered light pit here or there, but primarily smooth and pleasing. The top flat is neatly marked ''Action Fitted by J & W Tolley Ltd. 59 New Bond St., London W.'' and shows very light borderline engraving at the breeches. The frame and back action lockplate retain perhaps 92% mottled smoky blue-gray color case-hardening, rather brilliant in the more protected areas and on the lock. The lock and frames show some very light borderline engraving with light floral-like embellishment around a few of the pinheads, and a small spray of floral scroll atop the action to the rear of the breech, the lock marked ''J & W Tolley Ltd''. The right side of the frame shows some oxidation staining and toning to brown while the left side shows a couple spots of light pitting, one spot near the trigger plate a bit more moderate. The hammer is graceful and recurving and has a nice cap deflecting flourish at its top edge, harkening to the blackpowder days of broken cap deflectors. The top lever has some good original blue present with some smoky colors on the bow of the guard. The checkered pistolgrip English walnut buttstock rates very fine with the expected light dings and handling marks from the years but no cracks or other apologies save for an extremely tiny flake at the rear of the top tang, there is some nice grain hiding beneath the slight cloudiness in the butt from the years. The length of pull from the single trigger to the grooved wood butt is 14 1/8''. The rather generous ''splinter'' style forend rates very fine as well with crisp checkering and a nice horn forend tip; the iron also shows some smoky blue-purple case colors as well. The lockup is by dual under bites and the barrels are tight on-face with the rebounding back action lock quite crisp and a robust hammer spring. Overall length is very nearly 60'' and the gun weighs in at 12 3/4 pounds. There is a rather moderate pit in the chamber at about 8 o'clock, the steel so thick there it is likely of little or no consequence, it appears to be about 2'' in, a standard 8 Ga. shell measuring about 3 1/4 inches in length, well beyond this small defect. Overall a very impressive large bore fowler, no doubt made for market gunning, still in an extremely fine state of condition compared to most of these large big bore guns which were subject to so much harsh usage back in the day. (Please see the 8 Ga. ammunition available in the online auction.) (3C9616-2) {ANTIQUE} (3000/5000)

The rifle is sighted with simple brass bead atop a sporting ramp, two folding rear leafs graduated for 50 and 100 yards and the rib has been very neatly milled for, and has a set of bases for, Warne-style lever-detach 1'' scope rings. They currently mount a Burris 1 3/4 -5X telescopic sight with duplex reticle and bright excellent optics. A very handsome German over under double ejector rifle in an absolutely fabulous caliber.

Lot #103 (Sale Order 103 of 600)

serial #7357, 16 ga. by 222 Remington, 24'' Boehler Stahl barrels, the top choked full, with bright excellent bores. The barrels retain about 98% original blue, showing some light muzzle wear and some even fading, with some light oxidation along the forearm line on right of barrels. The scalloped boxlock frame is French gray finished and is a very pleasing pewter patina showing open flowing scroll and geometric engraving on the frame bolsters with nice game scenes showing walking turkeys left, fox with pheasant right and flushing grouse on the belly of the frame, this surrounded by the same excellent quality scroll and the makers mark. The triggerguard shows the same excellent scroll and retains nearly all its original blue, as does the top lever and safety. The checkered walnut capped pistolgrip buttstock and splinter style forend rate very fine to near excellent showing the overall very light handling marks that come from a field-used gun.

German Scalloped Boxlock Double Rifle by The Rempt Brothers German Scalloped Boxlock Double Rifle by The Rempt Brothers

German Scalloped Boxlock Double Rifle by The Rempt Brothers

Lot #104 (Sale Order 104 of 600)

serial #24172, 9.3 mm CF (bottlenecked case), 24 1/2'' Krupp Stahl barrels with bright excellent bores. The barrels retain 90% fading original gray-blue with toning to pewter at the muzzles, even loss and fading and toning to pewter in the carry point above the forend. The dolls head extension is lightly engraved with nice sprays of tight scroll engraving near the sideclip cuts at the breeches. The bolstered scalloped boxlock frame shows nice tight scroll engraving in about 95% coverage, with some foliate oakleaf engraving on the frame bolsters. The checkered round knob pistolgrip European walnut buttstock and splinter style forend rate very fine as neatly refinished many years ago. The checkering shows a bit of wear and has mullered borders, the forend tip with a graceful thin horn tip insert. The right side of the comb shows a brass threaded escutcheon, no doubt for some type of screw-on cheekrest which is no longer present. The length of pull to the curved solid rifle pad is 13 3/4''. Equipped with double triggers, both of which are single-set, non-automatic safety and extractors, lockup is with dual under bites and a Greener crossbolt beneath the dolls head extension, and the barrels are tight on face with the top lever at center. The herringbone matted rib raises to a simple silver bead front sight with a two-leaf u-notch rear, one standing, one folding, and the rear of the rib is maker fitted with a dual claw bases (no rings). The maker marking is on the underside of the barrel ''Gebruder Rempt/Suhl'' (REMO) and the caliber marking is ''9 mm'' above ''76'', proofed in January 1926. Bore diameter is .370''-.371'' and the chamber is a bottlenecked, rimmed cartridge. As with all arms of unknown chambering, a competent gunsmith must determine caliber, and check the headspace before any thought is given to attempting use of the firearm. The right firing pin seems to be stuck forward in its bushing and a couple of the screw slots show some very minor issues. A very attractive quality-made German double rifle overall.

Engraved, Silver & Gold-Plated Smith & Wesson No. 3 First Model Revolver with Inscribed Ivory Grips Engraved, Silver & Gold-Plated Smith & Wesson No. 3 First Model Revolver with Inscribed Ivory Grips

Engraved, Silver & Gold-Plated Smith & Wesson No. 3 First Model Revolver with Inscribed Ivory Grips

Lot #105 (Sale Order 105 of 600)

serial #2590, 44 S&W American, 8" ribbed round barrel with a fair bore showing scattered moderate oxidation and good rifling throughout. This is a wonderful revolver period-engraved in the New York style, the styling very much reminiscent of Nimschke with its wide flowing scrollwork that overlaps and intertwines with itself, punch-dot shading, shell-like motifs on either side of the hinge, a crosshatching pattern with small interrupting punch-dots on the sides of the topstrap and a wide looping geometric pattern along the sides of the barrel. The metal surfaces retain about 92% silver finish, likely period-reapplied as there are a few small isolated areas of pinprick pitting beneath the finish on the right side frame and backstrap but they are largely unobtrusive. The silver shows some light flaking and bubbling mostly along the high edges and remains mostly bright with the gripstraps and other isolated areas taking on the fine dark tarnish one would expect. The cylinder retains about 80% gold plating with overall flaking to a dark brown patina. The barrel latch retains some flakes of original blue and the hammer and triggerguard are toning to a pleasant smoky gray patina, the hammer showing a few spots of pinprick pitting along with very strong case-hardened colors lurking throughout. The barrel address remains completely intact and quite crisp and the embellishment is unmolested and very lovely overall. The smooth un-numbered antique ivory grips remain in near excellent condition, the left panel showing a neatly repaired sliver at the front edge, some fine age crackling, striations and light handling marks. The left panel is very neatly period-inscribed in fine script "Miguel S. Romero", the inscription has softened slightly from the years, remaining entirely legible. The latch and cylinder are matching by assembly number "L7", the barrel and cylinder also matching the frame by serial number. Barrel-to-frame fit is solid and the action will require some mechanical attention as the hand spring is worn causing the cylinder to not rotate and the extractor is not functional; the hammer otherwise cocks crisply. This is a stunning revolver for the American arms collector, period-engraved No. 3's very desirable and rarely encountered. (13D9567-20) {ANTIQUE} (5,000/10,000)

This revolver is embellished with fine quality engraving very much in the Oscar Young style with its tight foliate scrollwork and punch-dot shading. The right side of the frame and backstrap feature the characteristic bits of scroll with the small "cinch" in their centers and the left side with some of the scrolls intertwining. The metal surfaces retain about 85% period gold plating that very much appears to be factory showing some overall flaking to a pewter patina, a few sparsely scattered pinprick pits and old minor oxidation. The trigger and hammer show bold case-hardened colors with some minor silvering and light freckles. The un-numbered smooth mother-of-pearl grips remain in near excellent condition showing some light crackling at some edges and minor discoloration. All remaining numbered parts are matching and the action seems to function well mechanically with solid timing and lock-up.

Exquisite German Single Shot Stalking Rifle by Gmeiner & Sohn (NRA Silver Medal Winner 2011)

Lot #115 (Sale Order 115 of 600)

.38 cal., 27 3/8'' octagon barrel with a bright excellent professionally relined bore, looking at the face of the muzzle a definite seam can be noted. The false muzzle is included and matches the rifling perfectly, and what is likely the original short starter is included. The barrel shows nice open damascus pattern is sighted with a simple target globe front sight and an ornate u-notch rear adjustable for both windage and elevation. The front sight is likely a replacement during the period of use, it is somewhat spartan and there is a nickel silver windage scale just to the front of it, the current sight having no index pointer. The patent breech is very ornate and shows open flowing scroll and has left and right bolsters, as though the arm were to be a double barrel, each a mirror image of the other, the left side with a ''dummy nipple''. The breech shows three inlaid gold bands and a small recessed Royal coat of arms, inlaid in silver and ''M A Gmeiner & Sohn in Altenburg'' is inlaid in gold on the barrel, surrounded by open flowing silver scroll, continuing on the left and right diagonal flats. The arm has a right side lockplate and left sideplate. They, along with the generous top tang, exhibit perhaps 50% original color case-hardening, the balance muted to a pleasing dull case-hardened patina. All three pieces show excellent quality open flowing scroll with fine background punch-dot shading, stepped at their rear with scroll extensions. Right plate shows a recumbent doe, left with a recumbent stag, the tang with the hunter pursuing the quarry leaning against an old hollow tree, these inlaid in gold. The hammer itself is exquisite and deeply chiseled and pierced with a Romanesque face along its leading edge showing inlaid gold accents, this fits neatly into a pivoting weighted safety just to the rear of the cap deflector. The nose of the hammer is deeply chiseled into a gryphon or serpent head with silver inlaid teeth and gold inlaid eyes. The triggerguard and ornate patchbox show similar original color case-hardening with wide open scroll on the front extension with the squarish triggerguard showing an inlaid hunting hound against a woodland backdrop and a lovely carved horn pistolgrip with delicate scroll at its rear, miraculously unchipped after all the years. The patchbox is a long pendulum style with scroll on its extension and a running stag inlaid in gold, surrounded by inlaid silver scroll; the buttplate tang is nicely engraved as well. The European walnut stock rates very fine to excellent with nearly all its original varnish and only very light handling marks from the years and some age checks showing from drying. There is an ornate carved dogs head at the nose of the forearm with open flowing scroll, deep open flowing scroll and fine checkering at the wrist, and a generous left-side cheekpiece with carved scroll at each end. The left side of the butt shows an ornate hunting scene, deeply carved with two hunters, three downed deer and hounds, amidst a woodland scene. The underside of the forestock shows a light bit of carving surrounding a silver inlaid monogram plate with the initials ''MGG''. The rifle is equipped with double set triggers and a dual-acting lock and appears to be mechanically functional in every respect. The right side of the stock above the wedge escutcheons shows an old crack which was very neatly repaired and is very unobtrusive and there is a later ramrod with horn tip present. The arm is cased in its original walnut veneer case with French fitted interior and accessories. Included within are the aforementioned false muzzle and starter, a very nice polished steel mainspring vise, turn screw, a short starter/loading mallet, a very nice Parisian two ounce powder flask with spring-loaded charger, nickel silver powder measure and wiping rod accessories. There is a mahogany handled turned screw and a ''JS Improved'' nickel capper and a Museum-quality reproduction tang sight over the integral tang stud. The new sight is adjustable for both windage and elevation and appears to be a faithful reproduction of a period sight. This arm comes with its silver NRA medallion numbered ''493'', silver Certificate of Recognition, numbered to the medallion, naming the arm ''MA Gmeiner & Sohn With Eight Gold Inlays'' and small plastic NRA ''10 Best Awards'' tabletop plaque. An exquisite, investment-grade German stalking rifle clearly made for a person of noble blood, extremely deserving of its NRA accolade. (3G8937-212) {ANTIQUE} [Cletus Klein Collection] (4000/6000)

Scarce Wilkinson-Webley Double Action Revolver Identified to Edward Ramsden, 5th Lancers

Lot #116 (Sale Order 116 of 600)

serial #125912 (Wilkinson #2553), 455 Webley, 6" barrel with a bright near excellent bore showing the slightest hint of minor frosting and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this Wilkinson-retailed revolver retain 85-90% original bright blue showing some edge wear and scattered light flaking to gray-brown patina, gripstraps worn to gray-brown and scattered light scratches. The trigger, hammer and cylinder retainer remain partially bright showing spots toning to a mild gray-brown patina while a number of the screw heads still show some remnants of bright fire blue and the recoil shield shows pale straw color. The checkered walnut grips are stamp-numbered to the gun and remain in good condition showing a small chip forming at the top edge of the right panel, a few light chips around the edges and points along with some scattered dings. There is a small silver monogram plate set into the left panel that remains un-engraved. All markings remain clear with the left side of the topstrap neatly engraved "WILKINSON_WEBLEY '05", the right side of the frame stamped with Webley logo and patent, the topstrap engraved with Wilkinson's Pall Mall address and the backstrap with "E. RAMSDEN 5TH LANCERS". The lanyard ring is intact and the revolver is stamped with period commercial British, with no later export, proofs or import marks present. Barrel-to-frame fit is solid and the action seems to function well mechanically with excellent timing and lock-up. Research indicates Edward Ramsden joined the 5th Lancers in 1910 as a Lieutenant, was promoted to Captain in 1917 and retired in 1920. Ramsden was one of the officers who offered his resignation as a result of the 1914 Irish Curragh incident when the British were considering possible military action against the Ulster Volunteers if they rebelled against the Irish Home Rule resolution. All of this was eventually brushed under the table as a "misunderstanding", although a couple of high level commanders were forced out. He is also mentioned in Field Marshal J.D.P. French's despatches dated May 31, 1915 for gallant and distinguished service in the field. Ramsden would later serve again through the Second World War in various Home Guard leadership roles, notably as Lieutenant Colonel of the 11th Durham Home Guard and received the Military Cross at some point in his career. Ramsden lived to the age of 94, passing away in 1985. This is a very attractive revolver, owned by a long-serving officer with an interesting career. (13C9438-69) {C&R} (2000/3000)

serial #93257 (Conversion #926), 44 Colt CF, 5 3/4" shortened round barrel with a good bore showing light oxidation, pinprick pitting and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this revolver retain perhaps 35% period nickel finish mostly present along the triggerguard, right side barrel and a patch on the cylinder with the balance flaked to a mild gunmetal patina, some spots worn to goldenrod along the triggerguard. There are some areas of minor pinprick pitting and light dings and the front edge of the triggerguard has been very slightly thinned no doubt long ago. The smooth walnut grip is ink-numbered to the gun by conversion number and remains in very good condition showing moderate edge wear, light dings and handling marks. There is no visible inspector cartouche on the grip, no doubt it was worn away from the years, and there is also no visible "US" stamp on the left side barrel. The revolver otherwise bears the correct hallmarks of the U.S. contract revolver with small "A" inspector stamp on the left side barrel and triggerguard, "A P" on the cylinder and is composed of mixed parts all extensively re-numbered and matching by conversion number "926". The backstrap appears to be the only major component not stamped with the conversion number and the wedge cannot be confirmed as it is stuck fast. Colt's New York barrel address remains clear along with "COLTS PATENT" on the frame and the naval engagement cylinder scene is partially intact with areas that remain quite strong where the nickel finish is present. The action seems to function well mechanically with solid timing and lock-up. A very good example of these desirable early U.S. cartridge revolvers. (13C9438-63) {ANTIQUE} (2500/3500)

Interesting Colt Second Model Dragoon Period-Converted Cartridge Revolver

Lot #118 (Sale Order 118 of 600)

serial #10958, 50 CF, 5 5/8" barrel with a fair bore showing moderate oxidation, pitting and still some good rifling throughout. This revolver is made up in the style of an oversized Single Action Army and is a really fascinating example of frontier gunsmithing. The arm shows very discreet and well-executed areas of brazing where the topstrap was added on, the front edge of the frame was shortened and solidified, an extended back plate was added to the cylinder and along the custom-made ejector rod housing. The serial number of the frame was lost during the conversion and the barrel is unmarked, no doubt a custom made part altogether. The serial number is visible on the triggerguard, backstrap and cylinder and appears to match in all cases, "U.S." is also stamped on the left side of the frame, softened slightly but legible, there is a clear "C" inspector mark on the left side triggerguard and "B" on the backstrap. The metal surfaces are a mix of silvery gunmetal and spots of dark brown patina showing moderate oxidation staining overall along with some light dings and scratches. A couple of the cylinder notches show small pits through the metal, the screw heads show some slot wear and the hammer appears to be an undersized replacement, the firing pin of which does not fit through the breech face. The arm appears to have once had a loading gate and there are three small notches marked into the topstrap. The backstrap and triggerguard have toned to a pleasant ocher patina showing some light dings and handling marks while the smooth walnut grip remains in good condition showing some light chips around the edges, overall moderate smoothing and areas somewhat shy of the metal, its fit now a bit loose. A faint remnant of an inspector cartouche is visible on the left side, what appears to be the initials "ELT" are lightly scratched into the right side and there is an ink number on the interior that is difficult to decipher. The action will require some mechanical attention as the bolt does not disengage properly so the cylinder stays locked. This revolver would make an excellent and interesting addition to any Colt or frontier arms collection. (13B9438-102) {ANTIQUE} (2000/3000)

Interesting Whitney Cartridge-Converted Navy Revolver

Lot #119 (Sale Order 119 of 600)

serial #L923, 38 CF, 7 1/2" octagon barrel with a partially bright bore showing some moderate oxidation in the grooves and strong rifling throughout. This conversion utilizes lengthened rods in lieu of the base pin and ejector rod housing to provide an ejector rod assembly, there is an added somewhat crude loading gate and recoil plate and a centerfire firing pin driven through the back of the hammer. The cylinder itself appears to have been custom-made at the time of conversion and the post front sight has been located about 1 1/8" from the muzzle. The metal surfaces have toned to a mottled gunmetal patina showing some scattered fine pinprick pitting and spots of old oxidation staining. The triggerguard has toned to a pleasant ocher patina and the barrel is unmarked aside from the serial number which is stamped on the top flat. The smooth walnut grips are stamp-numbered to the gun and remain in very good condition showing some wear around the edges, light dings and remnants of original varnish. The triggerguard is also matching the frame and the action seems to function well mechanically with solid timing and lock-up a little loose. A peculiar conversion for the antique arms collector.

Colt Single Action Army Revolver Identified to Amarillo Veterinarian R C Lowry Colt Single Action Army Revolver Identified to Amarillo Veterinarian R C Lowry

Colt Single Action Army Revolver Identified to Amarillo Veterinarian R C Lowry

Lot #125 (Sale Order 125 of 600)

serial #161726, 45 Colt, 7 1/2'' barrel with a good to perhaps very good bore showing evident rifling but with light pitting its full-length. The metal surfaces on this very interesting factory-engraved revolver retain about 90% antique nickel, the areas of loss due to flaking from oxidation, loss primarily at underside of muzzle and on the straps with some smaller scattered loss here and there. The flaked areas are a dull pewter patina, the oxidized areas showing light pitting. The backstrap of the arm is factory engraved ''RC Lowry'' and the revolver has a pair of nice one piece ivory grips with scrimshawed American Eagles left and right. The grips are very fine with some light age cracking along their bottom edges and a lovely cream tone over all. The included factory letter shows shipment in October 1895 to H.R. Morrow through Hibbard Spencer Bartlett & Co. of Chicago, no doubt the Morrow-Thomas Hardware Company of Amarillo used Hibbard Spencer Bartlett & Co. as a distributor and therefore placed the order for the gun through them up. Mr. R.C. Lowry, full name ''Dr. R.W.C. Lowry'', was a veterinarian in Amarillo Texas, graduating the Kansas City Veterinary College in 1905. Mr. H. R. Morrow was the President of the Morrow-Thomas Hardware Company in Amarillo and was also a stockman as he can be located in records of bulls being bred by him. No doubt a wealthy and prolific fellow in the area, it is certain that the two men knew each other. The Colt records indicate the arm shipping with a 5 1/2'' barrel, whether this is a mistake in the records or the barrel was changed in Chicago is unknown, it is certainly possible the good veterinarian desired a longer barrel. The nickel appears original on barrel, frame and cylinder, the backstrap shows evidence of having been over-all rusted and lightly pitted at one point, and re-nickelled, clearly during the period of use, looking at the age of the nickel on both backstrap and triggerguard, matching that of the frame extremely well, showing remnants of light pitting beneath, the frame with original polish, edges and markings. The factory letter also indicates stocks as ''Ivory with Carved American Eagle Motif''. There are some impact or tool marks on the left side of the frame and a number of small dings on the underside of the barrel from someone attempting to remove the cylinder base pin, but the gun has a very nice and honest frontier-look and the ivory American eagle grips are very endearing. The gun seems to function well mechanically. A very fine Texas Single Action Army belonging to a veterinarian who loved Amarillo. (39655-1) {ANTIQUE} (5000/7000)

The finger spur triggerguards each have an oval monogram area, the full-length of the lever neatly engraved as well with identical decoration. Each of the monogram plates is engraved with a pair of initials, pistol 1 appears to be an intertwining ''MT'' while pistol 2 appears to be ''NCT''.

The French walnut stocks rate very fine and are extensively carved with foliate and oakleaf decoration, gun 1 with a few impact marks around the wedge escutcheon, the leading edge of the wedge face itself chipped off. Gun 2 shows a number of light impact marks as well but they are unobtrusive. The quality of the carving is as-expected exquisite and it remains unchipped, uncracked these many years.

This is a handsome British revolver more or less following the Smith & Wesson No. 1 design, the notable differences being the larger overall size, hammer shape being more in line with other British revolvers of the period and the grip panels being secured in the Sharps-style with a wide escutcheon along the bottom. The barrel, cylinder and ejector spud retain about 80% original bright blue with overall flaking to a pleasant gray-brown patina and a few light handling marks. The frame has mostly flaked to a similar smooth gray-brown patina with areas of strong bright blue scattered about the protected areas along with some very light freckling. The small parts show lovely fire blue, particularly brilliant along the hammer and the barrel rib is neatly engraved "H. HOLLAND 98 NEW BOND ST. LONDON. No. 401". The smooth walnut grips remain in very good plus condition showing a few tiny shallow chips and minor dings. All of the serialized parts are matching, barrel-to-frame fit is solid, the hammer is crisp and the action is functional although timing is somewhat off. The case is quite nice showing some lovely burl grain along the lid along with a brass shield-shaped monogram plate that is un-engraved. The interior is lined in dark blue baize and features a compartment for cartridges with sliding cover, small jag with ebony handle, turnscrew with ebony handle and an unmarked oil bottle. An interior edge of the case has "Rimfire 297" lightly written in pencil and the case otherwise remains in near excellent condition showing just some light dings here and there, no key is present. A lovely British pocket revolver with fine casing and accessories. (13C9100-765) {ANTIQUE} [Richard "Stretch" Kennedy Collection] (1500/2000)

Smith & Wesson Model 1940 Mark 2 Light Rifle Smith & Wesson Model 1940 Mark 2 Light Rifle

Smith & Wesson Model 1940 Mark 2 Light Rifle

Lot #134 (Sale Order 134 of 600)

serial #1259, 9mm, 9 3/4" fluted barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces of this rifle retain about 98% original blue showing a couple small dings along the ejection well body and a few other scattered light handling marks. This example is not marked with the patent information, the S&W monogram on the left side remains clear and the back of the rear sight shows some lovely straw color. The rifle is not stamped with any mark designation but has the Mark 2 features with rotating safety sleeve and vacant area where the Mark I safety lever would have been. The smooth black Tenite buttstock remains in near excellent condition showing a few light handling marks scattered about, the stock shows no evidence of having had Smith & Wesson's "DO NOT FIRE" plaque applied. One original 20-round magazine and an original sling are include, the sling showing some light scuffs and handling marks. The mainspring seems to be rather weak as bolt does not stay forward reliably and the action otherwise seems to function well mechanically. These rifles are famous for their spectacular failure during British testing resulting in most of them being destroyed. Only about 125 rifles remain in existence after the surviving examples were discovered at Smith & Wesson and subsequently sold on the commercial market with the caveat that they never be fired. An important arm for the military or Smith & Wesson collector. (13A9100-1335) {C&R} [Richard "Stretch" Kennedy Collection] (4000/6000)

The smooth walnut grips remain in excellent condition showing just a few light handling marks and the right panel is stamp-numbered to the gun.

The lid is very slightly warped and the name "Gerken" is written on the base. The interior is lined in red baize and is mostly intact showing a few small tears and minor staining.

Lovely Engraved Remington New Model Navy Metallic Cartridge Converted Revolver

Lot #144 (Sale Order 144 of 600)

serial #45191, .38 rf, 7 1/2" octagon barrel with a very good bore. The metal surfaces of this revolver show beautiful relief scroll engraving with punchdot shaded background. The scroll is in full coverage on the frame, there is lovely scroll around the entire circumference of the cylinder, the barrel shows engraving on 7 of its 8 flats and the loading lever is engraved. This is a rather late example and many of these later guns are not conversions but actually left the factory as cartridge guns built on percussion frames. All of the scrollwork is very neatly shaded and the scroll shows a lot of depth. The muzzle shows entwined lines on four flats with the same treatment bordering the barrel address on the top flat. There is also a wavy line and dot pattern along the barrel and a shell motif on the right side of frame above loading groove. These borders and patterns are indicative of 19th century American scroll engraving and were favored by several engravers including L.D. Nimschke. The revolver is finished in silver plate with generous amounts of that finish visible in protected areas with the balance of the surfaces bearing a smooth gray patina. The engraving really pops and has a wonderful antique appearance. The triggerguard is marked on the left side forward flat "49". The revolver shows smooth surfaces with crisp engraving. The gun wears a pair of ivory grips which are beautifully ink numbered on interior surface of each panel "45191" and rate very good with no damage. An extremely handsome engraved antique Remington revolver. (1E9362-8) {ANTIQUE} [Ed Marron Collection] (7000/9000)

Lot #145 (Sale Order 145 of 600)

serial #54589, 32 RF, 6" ribbed octagon barrel with a bright excellent bore. This is a lovely revolver retaining about 96-97% original bright blue showing some very fine minor flaking mostly along the gripstraps and cylinder toning to a pleasant gray-brown patina under bright light, some very light high edge and operational wear. The ejector spud and hammer show some very strong case-hardened colors toning to an attractive silvery patina. The screw heads show some very light slot wear and all markings remain crisp and clear. The revolver wears a set of nice smooth antique ivory grips that rate very fine showing a small flake missing from the edge of the left panel and light handling marks. The grips are un-numbered and show nice age crackling and a mellow patina. The cylinder is matching the frame by assembly number, the assembly number of the barrel is mismatched but this is likely a factory error as it has obviously been with this revolver from the beginning. Barrel-to-frame fit is solid and the action seems to function well mechanically with excellent timing and lock-up. A very handsome example with attractive grips that appears to have seen little to no use. (13B9567-19) {ANTIQUE} (1200/1800)

Lot #149 (Sale Order 149 of 600)

serial #1337, 44-40, 7 1/2" barrel with a good bore that shows light scattered pitting but shows strong rifling its entire length. This revolver is finished in original nickel and remains in a very fine state of preservation. There were barely 2000 of these revolvers produced making them quite rare as compared to the 1875, of-which there were nearly 30,000 produced. The top of the barrel bears "REMINGTON ARMS CO., ILION, NY." address while the left side of the frame is marked "44 C.F.W.".

The frame shows about 85% original nickel plate with most loss on the backstrap which is a brown patina, along with some loss on the rear right side of frame. There is a little light bubbling in the finish but overall the appearance is very nice. The two-piece hard rubber grips rate very good showing no chips or damage and just light wear to the checkering, commensurate with the balnce of the wear on this revolver. A very fine example of these desirable and scarce Remington revolvers. (19362-87) {ANTIQUE} [Edward W. Marron, Jr. Collection] (5000/7000)

Exceptional Siegfried Günther Sidelock Over Under Shotgun

Lot #150 (Sale Order 150 of 600)

serial #693, 12 ga., 30'' solid rib barrels choked full in both with bright excellent bores. The barrels on this superbly executed shotgun retain about 98% plus Bohler Spezial Stahl barrels. They are maker marked on the left bolster flare, the right reading ''Waffenfabrikation Konstruktion'' and are proved December 1954. The frame and lockplates are a very pleasing French gray finish with overall tight flowing scroll, game scene and foliate engraving. The right sidelock shows a hawk in full dive with talons out, amidst a covey of quail, six of the seven making good their escape, the seventh fellow not so lucky. The left side shows two gunning dogs, one on point, amidst a startled flock of waterfowl. There is tight flowing scroll at the front of these and on belly of frame with foliate scroll work up both frame bolsters. The same scroll continues onto the triggerguard which retains all its original blue as do the top lever and safety. The checkered French walnut capped pistolgrip buttstock and splinter forend and both upper forend panels rate excellent with a sparsely scattered light handling mark here or there.

Lovely German Percussion Double Rifle by Baestlein Lovely German Percussion Double Rifle by Baestlein

Lovely German Percussion Double Rifle by Baestlein

Lot #151 (Sale Order 151 of 600)

.62 cal, 27 3/4'' octagon barrels with very good bores showing some light oxidation and some scattered light pitting. The barrels are primarily a dark gray-blue toning and flaking to a soft plum brown, with some scattered light oxidation, and some areas of light pitting, more predominant on the left tube near the muzzle. There is a simple blade style front sight and large square notch rear and the makers name is inlaid in silver on the rib ''Joh Baestlein in Suhl'', this flanked by light open scroll. Rib extension, tang, and locks are all primarily a dull pewter gray patina and show a loose flowing open scroll. The lockplates show small game scene vignettes at their rear and are each marked in turn ''I Baestline'' and ''in Suhl'' in ribands. The hammers show wolf's head engraving on their flats, each nose chiseled into a wolf's head motif with silver inlaid teeth. The locks are crisp and seem to function well mechanically, with the hammers in-time, each trigger being a single set. There is a very nicely engraved German silver ramrod tailpipe and front extension of the triggerguard bow. The bow itself is very wide and shows two recumbent deer beneath a tree and there is a nice rearward grip swirl. The German silver buttplate shows some simple borderline engraving with a bit of scroll and a fox on the upper tang. The European walnut buttstock rates very good to fine and shows much original varnish with the expected minor dings and handling marks that come from the years, and a bit of worn finish from handling. There is fine checkering at both the grip and the forestock, accented by very nice open flowing scroll carving. The left side of the butt has a nice flared cheekpiece with grooved edge and nice open flowing foliate scroll carved at its rear. The original sling swivels are intact and there is a very nice wooden door sliding patchbox with carved floral motifs. Johan Baestlein cannot be located in Stockel but both Christoph and Gottfried are, active around 1846. A well-executed German double percussion rifle.

The forend and buttstock are stamp-numbered to the gun. The rifle is quite attractive and appears to have seen very little use, suffering somewhat from some poor storage through the years. The barrel retains perhaps 25% original blue with most of the loss due to moderate oxidation staining and toning to dark brown patina. The frame has mostly toned to a pleasant mild gray case-hardened patina with bold colors in the protected areas and some spots of brown oxidation staining scattered about. The hammer and breechblock retain strong original blue with freckling and oxidation staining while a number of the small parts retain some faint hints of bright fire blue. The checkered pistolgrip walnut buttstock and forend feature a hard rubber buttplate, forend tip and a nice buffalo horn insert at the base of the pistolgrip. The stocks remain in near excellent condition showing a few scattered light dings, a couple lightly chipped points and a few marks along the comb line from the rear sight. The stocks show strong original finish with attractive tiger stripe grain figure and the checkering is still mostly crisp. The rifle retains its heel mount, proper long range Vernier rear sight and original Remington wind gauge front target sight with spirit level. A very attractive example of these desirable Remington target rifles for the collector of fine American arms. (13C8927-253) {ANTIQUE} (4000/6000)

Lot #164 (Sale Order 164 of 600)

serial #H135159, 300 WBY MAG, 26'' barrel with Magna-Port style porting and a bright, excellent bore. This is an as-new-in-box condition rifle that was purchased new in the early 1980's as one of the famed ''Bank of Boulder'' premium rifles they would offer with a Savings deposit or a CD: the consignor took advantage of their program, but never used the rifle. The metal surfaces have no signs of any visible wear, the floorplate is factory engraved with the ''Weatherby Custom'' banner logo and foliate designs. The bolt handle still bears the green rubber protective coating on its factory custom checkered knob. The nicely figured deluxe series checkered walnut stock is in exemplary condition and features skipline checkering, a rosewood forend tip and gripcap with ivory diamond inlay, swivel studs and the vented recoil pad. The original sealed factory hangtag is still affixed to the forward swivel and the included factory test target shows a 1/2'' three-shot group. There are no provisions for sights but included are the original box with shipping sleeve, manual and a set of bases and 1'' scope rings that have never been mounted. According to available records this Southgate, CA vintage rifle was manufactured by Howa for Weatherby between 1983-1984. It remains in as-new, unfired condition ready for new adventures with its next left-handed shooter. (4A9626-40) {MODERN} (1800/2200)

Rare U.S. Navy Contract Colt Model 1860 Fluted Army Percussion Revolver

Lot #165 (Sale Order 165 of 600)

serial #5091, .44 cal, 8" round barrel with a fair bore showing scattered moderate oxidation, light pitting and strong rifling. The metal surfaces of this revolver have mostly toned to a pleasant mottled pewter and gray-brown patina showing some sparsely scattered light pitting that shows evidence of an old cleaning, some light dings and handling marks. The triggerguard is a mild goldenrod patina showing some scattered light dings. The smooth walnut grip shows no visible ink number and remains in very good plus condition showing an old repair at the left toe, some light dings and handling marks. The grip displays a little bit of play and is stamped with a period marking on the left base that reads "I / AR". The trigger is either an old replacement or has been modified during the period of use as it is rather short. The patent date is no longer visible along the cylinder and the "COLTS PATENT" on the frame is somewhat soft. The remaining markings are quite nice with a small "L" on the left side of the triggerguard, single line New York address and serial numbers all completely legible. The wedge is un-numbered and the remaining serialized parts are matching; the cylinder number is stamped on the back surface. The action remains functional with good timing and loose lock-up. Included with this revolver is a Colt factory letter that indicates it shipped as-described on May 9, 1861 to the United States Navy Yard in New York City in a 50-gun shipment. The Navy ordered only a few hundred of these fluted Army models early in the war and most are believed to have been issued to the ships of the blockade. A fine example of a very rare navy contract arm that would make an excellent addition to any advanced Colt or U.S. martial collection. (13D9633-2) {ANTIQUE} (5000/7000)

The smooth walnut grip is un-numbered and remains in very good plus condition showing some shallow old chips along the edges and scattered minor dings. The arbor is matching the frame, the cylinder and wedge are un-numbered and the remaining serialized parts are all numbered differently although they all fit together well; it is believed that these mismatched revolvers were refurbished post-war by Springfield Armory. The action seems to function well mechanically with solid timing and lock-up. A handsome example of a scarce and interesting variation for the U.S. martial collector.

Lot #167 (Sale Order 167 of 600)

serial #23303, 44 S&W American, 8" ribbed round barrel with an about good bore showing light pitting, oxidation and good rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this revolver retain about 90% original nickel finish with most of the loss due to some flaking along cylinder and left side barrel toning to a medium gray-brown patina, some scattered finer flakes and light dings. The screw heads show some slot wear and the ejector housing screw head a bit more moderate damage. The triggerguard and hammer have toned to a pleasant gray patina with the hammer showing some faint case-hardened colors in the protected areas. The barrel address remains crisp and clear and the smooth walnut grips remain in very good plus condition showing some light edge wear and minor dings along the bases. The right panel is stamp-numbered to the gun and the other parts are matching by assembly number. Barrel-to-frame fit is solid and the action seems to function well mechanically with excellent timing and lock-up. An honest and attractive second model American. (13B9474-97) {ANTIQUE} [Dr. John W.

Smith & Wesson No. 3 Third Model Russian Contract Revolver

Lot #168 (Sale Order 168 of 600)

serial #8182, 44 S&W Russian, 6 1/2" ribbed round barrel with a poor bore showing pitting, an uneven surface and is devoid of rifling. The metal surfaces of this revolver are a mottled gray-brown patina showing fine light pitting scattered throughout and some other minor handling marks. The hammer shows faint remnants of case-hardened colors, there is a small crack at the top edge of the triggerguard which also shows some remnants of silvery case-hardened patina. The smooth walnut grips are un-numbered and remain in very good condition having darkened from the years and show some overall smoothing and light handling marks. The Russian language barrel address is partially intact, there is a small imperial eagle stamp at the rear of the barrel rib and a small "(Crown) / M" proof on the right side of the barrel. Based on the markings the arm does not appear to have been finally accepted by the Russian military. The latch is mismatched and the remaining numbered parts are matching. Barrel-to-frame fit is solid and the action seems to function well mechanically with excellent timing and lock-up. (13A9474-131) {ANTIQUE} [Dr. John W. Hall Collection] (1500/2000)
