Two, Rare, Completely Restored Colt 1st Generation Hammers

These two, next to impossible to find, 1st generation hammers have been completely restored with new notches and bolt cam.  The color case hardening has been expertly done by Doug Turnbull of Turnbull Restorations and looks exactly like the colors in the original Colt case hardening.  The checkering on the hammer is excellent and done in the classic, original bordered Colt style with hint of red and a horizontal line just below the forward portion of the checkering.  If you are completing a full restoration of a Colt Black Powder single action six-gun these hammers will fit your needs perfectly.  $575.00 apiece

Antique X-Ring Bullet Trap

 Here is a very unique bullet trap from the 1950’s or before that would be a really nice item for those of you who are snowed and iced in due to global warming and would like to set up a mini shooting range in your basement.  The following description of this X-Ring bullet trap is written in the words of an old Numrich Arms Co. magazine ad:

A Complete Lighted Range Instantly

“Set up X-Ring in your amusement room, basement or attic.  ONLY BACKSTOP equipped with the famous Centrifugal Trap that fives positive freedom fro dangerous back spatter and has a heavy wall of metal between shooter and point of bullet disintegration.  It is portable and disassembles in two minutes.  It is recommended  for all caliber pistols and rifles using cartridges up to 600 foot lbs. muzzle energy.  The X-Ring illustrated below is the 12″ pedestal model.”

This snail style trap Has a place to install lights on either side and has a bracket holding a clip to hang your target.  It will take handgun cartridges up to, but not including 44 mag so you need to check the muzzle energy of your cartridge to be sure it is under 600 pounds.

The way it works is the same as today’s modern snail traps in that the bullet enters the square funnel, passes through a small opening at the rear of the funnel and enters the snail structure where it spins until all energy is expended and the  bullet falls harmlessly out the bottom into a bucket or on the ground.  It is pretty much a fool proof system that is still used today by Savage Range Systems.

CONDITION: Used, but all parts are in excellent shape with lots of bullet tracks in the cone.   It sat in a dry basement in Utah for well over 60 years where it was well protected from the weather.

$695.00 plus crating and UPS shipping for 70 pounds.  I have two traps for sale

Blank Cartridge Machine Gun Bandoleer

Here is something real interesting to hang in your gun room: a caliber .308, fired, blank cartridge belt.  Someone long ago took the time to link up about 200 rounds of fired blank cartridges.  Machine gun blanks such as these were used in combat training, movies, teaching and other areas.  I have had these for over 40 years and decided to sell them so someone younger can enjoy them…$145.00 plus shipping.



Winchester .264 Magnum Model 70 Barrel

Found this unique Winchester 264 Winchester Magnum Featherweight Model 70 barrel in a pile of barrels I have removed from various rifles over the years.  This barrel looks good with a bright, excellent bore.  The flip up rear sight is in place and working as it should, but the front sight is missing from the ramp.  There is slight wear in the bluing at the muzzle and some extremely light rust in a couple of places, but nothing that would detract from the looks.  If you are looking for a replacement barrel for a somewhat rare Winchester Model 70 Featherweight in .264 mag. this is for you…$150.00 plus shipping.

Flip-up, Custom Made, Steel Sights

Flip-up, custom made, steel sights. I made these dovetail sights back in the early 1980′s as a simple flip up sight for use on either a rifle or hunting revolver. The blade has two settings: the first is an uncut blade so you can cut the style of notch you prefer; the second is a deep “U” for fast acquisition in changing or dark situations (using these excellent sights with a gold bead, white dot or Tritium front is a fine sighting system for quick aquisition and old eyes). These sights are shown “in the white” but will be soft glass beaded and blued…$25.00 apiece or five for $100.00. Shipping is extra.

Colt “D”

Sling Swivel Studs

Sling swivel studs: The three in the white (there are actually five) machined from solid bar stock with high top head screws that can be cut flush or domed are for mounting in a butt stock for a sleek custom look. They will accept Michaels and other quick release sling swivels and will not allow the swivels to touch and mar the wood. Brownells sells these for $30.00, but I will sell them for $20.00 apiece.
**One single barrel band swivel stud pictured has a .650″ inside diameter and retails for $55.00, but your cost on this one is $35.00.
**Two blue single barrel band swivel studs have a .780″ and .850″ inside diameter. They retail for $55.00…$30.00 apiece.

There is only one “Michaels” sling swivel studs” left!

Metalform and Tripp Research Mags

Metalform and Tripp Research Cobra magazines are the finest made by any manufacturer anywhere for the model 1911.

They also have a welded, no wobble, all steel follower (no plastic followers that break down in a short time.) which gives positive slide lock contact and excellent feeding of the last round. As soon as you see your first Metalform or Cobra magazine you will quickly see why they are the best. They are also the best value for your money of any magazine ever made for the model 1911…$29.00 apiece plus $7.00 shipping. Cobra Mags start at $43.00.

19th century miniature canon for salute and noise-making purposes. The tube is cast brass, hand stamped “C. F. Jones, Omaha“, marked on the right side of the breech is “Colombia, 1893.” The tube measures approximately 11 3/4″ and is of heavy construction with an iron mounted latch and breech swivels up to accept a 12 ga. blank shell.
