Gents, I will start moving some inherited guns in the not so distant future.  Uncle passed a few years back, and now its time to move his stuff.  No NFA items, but there are likely some gems in there.  While I am fairly well versed in Thompsons and other NFA subguns, I am very ignorant on other guns such as older side by side shotguns, older rifles etc.  If it isn't military it didn't get on my radar. 

 

I am starting by trying to price out some bookends.  Any one who wants to PM me with advice or interest, or links to review on a gun please feel free. But no... I don't intend to give them away. 

 

Here's a partial list of things that I am starting to photograph and look up:

 

Side by Sides:

- A.H. Fox Sterlingworth side by side, 12 ga SN 126XXX pistol grip stock with good color case hardened lock, bluing and checkering.  Better than any I have ever seen.

- Browning Belgium Superposed Lightning Trap O/U; like new, SN 16xxx-S69. 

- Lefever Nitro Special 16 ga 2823xx  reblued. solid gun, I could be wrong but the whole thing is blued,  I thought the receiver would be color case hardened...

- Parker Bros 12 ga 28" BBL 1423xx Fancy walnut Straight stock with pad, single "miller" trigger, Frame 1 1/2, Grade 3 DH

Manufactured 1907 Barrel Weight marked 3.15.  Beautiful gun, but has issues.  Letter from Parker dudes said out of the factory it had 30" inch barrels.  At some point a midget had it customized to himself.

 

Automatic

-Browning Belgium Double Auto "twentyweight" 12 ga,grade one, plane barrel in the original box. SN range 5A485XX Looks brand new.

- Remington 12 ga Model 58 71xxv Sportsman 58 in VG condition.

 

Pump guns

- Winchester model 42, 410 SN 147xx 26" bbl, vent rib, full choke.  3" chamber.  Drop dead gorgeous.

- Winchester model 42, 410 SN  11879xx 28" bbl, no rib .  Drop dead gorgeous.

- Winchester Model 62A .22 S, L, LR SN 2434xx, Post WWII (1948) 80% scratches on L side of reciever

 

Single shot and or Bolt Action

PF Sedgley 30-06 on a WWI Mauser action SN 1900 beautiful walnut stock.  J Unertyl 4x Hawk scope (later scope).

FN 1951 220 swift Rifle 176XX Pistol Grip stock with black endcap and forend, weaver K10 Scope. 

 

All of these are very good guns.  I will post some basic photos later. More can follow to those interested. 

 

My intent is to get some idea of the values that I need to ask.  Don't ask what do you want for it, because I do not know.  Asking that question assures you of zero responses.  Once I know I will post.

 

Cheers,

Sandman1957
