“Dances With Wolves” Shiloh Sharps Rifle

Documented, custom Cased Shiloh Sharps Saddle Ring Carbine With Special Serial Number Range Used In The Movie, “Dances With Wolves”!

Serial number USC 014, 45-70 cal,. 22 1/2″ round bbl,. blue case-hardened finish, walnut stock.  This Shiloh Sharps carbine is one of only 26 manufactured in a special run and serialized in a special range having a “USC” prefix.  The carbines were made for R.L. Curtin who originally had them created to be issued by soldiers particitpating in Mr. Curtin’s Cavalry Boot Camps and Indian Wars reenactments along the Stillwater River Country of South Central Montana.  The “USC” prefix stands for Upper Stillwater Cavalry.  The carbines were made for Mr. Curtin by Wolfgang Droge the owner, operator of Shiloh Rifle Manufacturing Co., Inc in and around 1987.  The carbines were later leased to the production of the movie “Dances With Wolves” starring Kevin Costner.  Mr. Curtin’s army wagons and mule teams were also used in the movie. Mr. Curtin was hired as a wrangler and drove the wagons where he and his teams appeared in several scenes in the movie, with Curtin sometimes doubling for actor Tobert Pasterelli driving wagons.  Behind the scenes Curtin worked as the horse wrangler for the movie crew and at times was the handler of Kevin Sostner’s horse.  Mr. Curtin’s name appears in the credits of the movie and he still receives residuals from the production company.  One of the carbines was lost in a river during a scene in the movie and a replacement was made by Wolfgang (USC26).  The carbines were also used in the movie “The Morning Star” and in the re-enactment of Custer’s Last Stand.  Mr. Curtin is a former Marine, actor, wrangler, hunter, outfitter, stagecoach driver, farmer and farier.  His expertise in the activities of the  frontier Army is very extensive.  Wolfgang Droge also built three rifles for Tom Selleck to be used in the movie “Quigley Down Under.”  Included in this package is a black leather Cavalry carbine belt, a small picture book with scenes from the movie and  a photograph of Curtin with the carbine and belt, newpaper articles about Curtin’s involvemtent in the movie, a notarized letter from Curtin, two pamphlets from the upper Stillwater Cavalry Camp, two pay stubs from the production company, the illustrated Story of “Dances With Wolves” and of course the DVD.  The carbine has the boxed “Old Reliable” marking on the top of the barrel, as well as “SHILOH RIFLE MFG, CO,”ahead of th rear sight and “CALIBER 45/2 1/10″ at the breech.  The two line Big Timber address is marked on the left side of the frame and the serial number “USC/014″ on the upper tamg.  Sights are a blade front with a folding ladder carbine rear sight.  There is a saddle ring and bar on the left wrist. The barrel is blued and the remaining parts are color casehardened. The forearm is smooth walnut as is the straight grip stock.  This noteable, historic rifle comes complete in a custom wooden case with brass hardware.

CONDITIONExcellent!  The barrel retains 95% original blue finish with some thinning on the muzzle end.  With the exception of the buttplate, the remainging parts retain 98% original case colors and the buttplate retains most of the original case colors on the tang with, a smooth gray patina on the balance.  The wood is very good with some scattered minor dents and scratches.  All markings are crisp.  The action is excellent.  This is a well documented special run and serialized Shiloh Sharps used in the epic movie “Dances With Wolves” and would be a focal point of any Sharps rifle collection plus this fine rifle was the personal rifle of R. L Curtin and is the only one cased in a custom, wood French fit case! 

Estimated value has been placed at $9,000 by two auction houses and several collectors at….$8,495.00 including three 20 round boxes of Black Hill ammunition.

Rare Magnum Research 445 Super Mag.

(5832)(Sheeran) Serial number JT10463.  This rare precision fitted Magnum Research model BFR comes in “one of a kind” .445 Super Magnum caliber. According to the folks at Magnum Research they only made one BFR in .445 Super Magnum caliber so this is the rarest of the rare revolvers to leave the Magnum Research factory.  The finish is exquisite brushed stainless steel gun.  The barrel is 6 1/2″ with an eleven degree crown.  The custom fitted grips were made by Hogue and are  polished Black Micarta. It appears they used the same extra long cylinder as they use in their revolvers chambered for 45 Colt and 410 gauge shotgun shells, but this special made, one of a kind, five shot revolver is for the .445 Super Mag only.  The trigger is a crisp 3 1/2 pounds and the total weight of this exceptional piece is right at 4 pounds 8 ounces.

Included in this unique package is the original invoice showing the Portland, Or owner paid $1,800.01 for this beauty and appears he never fired it. Also included is a custom zippered soft case and scope base matched to the scope mounting hole in the frame. If you are a collector of rare, one of a kind revolvers or need something well outside the ordinary to add to your Magnum Research collection this should get your attention.

1921 Thompson Sub Machine Gun, serial number 4339, caliber 45 ACP

This beautiful “early” Thompson was the property of the Philadelphia police department back in the early 1920’s where it began its historic life. If it could talk I can only imagine the stories it would tell.  It is in very good to excellent condition and shows very minor storage scratches in the 98% blue finish. The barrel is bulged where a handloaded bullet caught up with the one in front of it.  Bulged barrels are common for the early 920 rpm cycle rate Thompsons.  I found an original replacment barrel and will keep it as a spare if this Tommy Gun is ever sold. The case is original and is complete with spare parts/tool box, ramrod, 50 round drum magazine and four ten round magazines. Shooting this magnificent piece of American history is a treat beyond words. It ain’t for sale, but you can dream.

CONDITION: Fine with 40% of the original blue finish showing areas of brown patina and mild spotting with scattered handling marks and a small amount of pitting on the muzzle and trigger guard which is slightly bent probably when Mr. Ahlers knocked some “bad guy” in the head which was a common practice. A mixed brown and gray patina is forming on the frame with original color visible on the hammer. Grips are good with an aged brown color, mild pressure dents, but have “Oliver Ahlers” and 14 notches scratched into the bottom of the grips. The scratches and notches are interesting, but I assume they were put there in a moment of drunken fantasy by the original owner or chronicles the number of rabbits he killed or if Mr. Ahlers was a lawman it could be the way he kept track of the men he injected with 32-20 lead. I like this kind of personal marking as it makes the piece more unique and interesting. Mechanically, this Colt is very good….$3,540.00.

Colt Third Generation

31. (5137)Colt third generation serial number”SA61729” (Delivered by Colt in 1972.) in 44 Special with a 5 1/2″ barrel.

This exquisite piece, as you can see, is very special with 90% engraving executed and signed by nationally acclaimed engraver Weldon Lister of Boerne, Texas in a style reminiscent of Nimschke/Helfricht made famous by Colt in the late 1800’s. The hammer is engraved on both sides with the great American Eagle and the front sight has a sunburst pattern. Weldon finished this magnificent piece in antique nickel with the background inked in to make the beautiful scroll appear to stand high. The high polished screws are Nitre blued for stunning contrast. The perfectly fitted one piece American Black Walnut grips with exceptional figure and grain were created by another nationally acclaimed artist, Paul Persinger of El Paso, Texas. Paul also inlayed a magnificent Elephant Ivory three dimensional Texas star into both grips. The unfired action has had some work and is smooth and light. The beautiful custom French fitted case was created specifically for this fine piece by Les Yoder of Brookfield cases. Additionally, this beautiful single action is featured in the latest book “American Custom Engravers” which went on sale January 2011. You can add this fine example of gun makers, engravers, grip maker and case maker art to your collection for…$5,800.00 The cost to reproduce this Colt complete with French fitted case would be $6,500.00

A valuable extra feature connected to this fine single action is all about the engraver, Weldon Lister, who is featured in an article in the August 2010 issue of Texas Monthly magazine. Texas Monthly is the most widely read monthly magazines in the United States with a readership of close to five million.

Shiloh Sharps Model 1874

SOLD

30. Shiloh Sharps Model 1874 Long Range Single Shot Quigley style rifle made around 1993 – Serial # B1649,  barrel caliber marking is stamped “45 Caliber 21/10″ which is the Shiloh marking for “45-70″ caliber, beautifully machined 34 inch half octagon half round barrel, blue/color case hardened finish and a exceptionally figured walnut stock. This rifle is a reproduction of the Sharps 1874 single shot rifle manufactured by the Shiloh Rifle Company in Big Timber, Montana. Standard markings include “45 caliber 21/10.” The rifle is equipped with a globe bead front sight and tang mounted rear sight, adjustable double set triggers (an expensive option), checkered forearm with a poured pewter forend tip and pistol grip stock with a checkered plastic buttplate. The half round, half octagon (another expensive option) barrel is blue and the remaining parts color case hardened. The Big Timber Shiloh Sharps have been one of the most sought after American rifles ever made. The wait time for these fine custom rifles is two years or more.
CONDITION: NRA Excellent and possibly unfired! The barrel retains 99% original blue finish with a few minor scuffs. The remaining parts retain 100% of the original case colors and the fancy grade walnut wood is near mint. It appears this rifle was a custom order and possibly made for a man who dreamed about participated in long range single shot competition, but never got around to it. He, like me, just wanted to touch the best. This rifle is mechanically excellent and in my forty years of gunsmithing I have not seen anything radiate quality like this rifle. I had Shiloh price this rifle out at between $3,500 and $3,800…$2,995.00.

Sharps Model 1874 Sporting Rifle With Letter

28. Sharps Model 1874 Sporting Rifle With A Desirable “J.P. Lower” Retailer marked Barrel – Serial number “157084”, 40 Sharps Caliber (40 Caliber was the most accurate and was used by a majority of competitive shooters of that era.), 28 inch octagon barrel, blue/casehardened finish, walnut stock. The chamber appears to be cut for a bottleneck cartridge, and the factory records letter states the case length is 2 5/8″.  I removed the front hand-guard and the only thing stamped on the bottom of the barrel is the serial number and another number that has been marked out and appears to have been 150113, but I am not 100% sure. The forearm wood has the number 7084 stamped into it. This Bridgeport manufactured Model 1874 was made and shipped in 1876 (the model 1874 was not applied to the gun for a few years after production began). The top of the barrel is marked “SHARPS RIFLE CO. BRIDGEPORT, CONN.” ahead of the rear sight, with “J.P. LOWER” in authentic letters and “CALIBRE 40” behind the rear sight. There are two additional filler block dove tails, one about 3 1/2″ ahead of the present rear sight and one immediately behind the “40” marking. Other than the serial number on the upper tang there are no other markings. J. P. Lower was one of Sharps largest western states distributors in Denver, Colorado. The serial number is correctly marked with 6 numbers because the “C” prefix was dropped after serial number C54800. Sights are a low profile dovetail blade front sight and Lawrence patent marked folding leaf rear sight graduated to 800 yards. The barrel was blue with casehardened remaining parts. The rifle is equipped with adjustable double set triggers which are true to the letter and mounted with a smooth high gloss oil finished walnut forearm -true to the letter with a poured pewter forend which is also true to the letter and straight grip stock and steel style buttplate. This beautiful sporting Sharps rifle comes compete with 5 3/8″ X 3 1/2″ J. P. Lower advertisement.

CONDITION: Fine as partially restored. The barrel has a smooth attractive brown patina with strong traces of the original blue finish in the protected areas and most of the original thinning blue remains under the forearm. The serial number on the barrel struck and renumbered to match. The left side of the receiver shows much of the faded original case colors, with some of the casehardening pattern remaining on the right side. The lock shows strong crisp and clear markings. The bore is in 95% condition with very light pitting, but the rifling is sharp and well defined for the entire length. The forearm has a 4″ longitudinal crack which will be easy to repair. This fine Sharps rifle has survived 136 years and the rigors of time in excellent mechanical condition and carries a top value of $6,500.00.   $4,800.00.

The factory letter created from Richard J. Labowskie’s Sharps order book number 3 discribes this fine rifle just as it left the factory August 17, 1876 and was shipped to John P. Lower in Denver, Colorado.

Colt Single Action Army Frontier Six Shooter

32. Colt Single Action Army Frontier Six Shooter, serial # “354092” in caliber 44-40 (44 WCF) with a 5 1/2″ barrel, color cased frame, loading gate numbered “1075,” and hammer with blue barrel and backstrap. The grips are still sharp checkered hard black rubber with the Rampant Colt facing forward.

This fine Colt SAA was lettered by Beverly Jean Haynes, Archivist at Colt’s and showing it was shipped February 4, 1931 with a 7 1/2″ barrel to H&D Folsom Arms Company in New York, New York. There was only one gun in the shipment and was Colt factory order number 19453/1. Of course this means the barrel was replaced somewhere along its journey or possibly cut and shortened, but it was done long ago and was accomplished by an expert, possibly the Colt factory since it was sold so close to the factory.

There are good signs of the color case still left, but it is faded. The bluing on the replacement barrel and ejector rod look very good with holster wear in all the standard places. The bluing on the trigger guard and backstrap is just about non existent. There is some slight pitting on the right side of the muzzle and very light pitting on the color cased parts. All screws are original and and in sharp condition with a little nitre blue remaining on the ejector house screw. The base pin is in perfect unmarred condition and appears to be original. The cylinder chambers are in excellent, bright condition, but the outside of the cylinder shows holster wear and light radial scratches only in the bluing.

The left side of the barrel reads, “COLT FRONTIER SIX SHOOTER 44-40” and the top of the barrel reads, “COLT’S PAT F. A. MFG C0 HARTFORD CT U.S.A.” The two line address on the left of the frame reads, “PAT.SEPT.19,1871″ “JULY 2 72, JAN, 19,75.

The serial number on this single action is clear and sharp, but does not appear on the trigger guard or backstrap.

I would place this 78 year old Frontier Six Shooter at about 70% which would carry a Blue Book value of $5,000. The action is as tight as it can ever be completely without end-float or rotational play, timing is perfect, barrel to cylinder alignment perfect, barrel rifling clear and sharp, and with everything else in perfect shooting condition. This fine single action was cared for by a man who loved fine guns and took pride in it’s care. $1,800.00. SOLD ON LAYAWAY!

Custom Smith And Wesson 629

19. Custom Smith And Wesson 629

Custom Texas Longhorn

14. Custom Texas Longhorn

This is a rare Texas Longhorn single action made like many shooters believe a Colt Single Action Army should have been made for a right hand shooter with the loading gate and extractor rod on the left. Like many of we aging shooters the owner wanted a Doctor red dot scope mounted so he could see the cottin’ pickin’ sights. The grip is an abbreviated Bisley.
