Wish I had pic with me, but does an MAB with no import markings count? original box and paperwork included. Been shot maybe 50 times.

I am not sure if its officially "rare" but in my 40 years on Earth I had never seen one in person until the day I bought it so I figured it was kinda rare?

Smith and Wesson 547

I also had a Smith 940, which is a 640 in 9mm. Just had a thing for 9mm revos at the time. Got hurt, couldn't shoot 'em anymore, sold 'em. Let someone else enjoy them.

Type 99 Arisaka with aviation sights so you can shoot down B-29's or Hellcats and maybe P-51D's. :whistling:

1897 M1891 Finn Captured Sestroryetsk
http://glocktalk.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=211394&d=1294991355

Started out in Russia. Captured by the Germans in WW1 (barrel markings) and was sold to and reworked by the Finns to fight the Russians. Who knows what it's seen: The Winter War? The Continuation War? Who knows?

We are just a temporary caretakers of this great history.

Not mine, but same thing:

http://www.exordinanza.net/foto/beretta948.jpg

Beretta 948, .22LR auto. Made in 1956, and shoots like it was brand new. I'm going to get around to refinishing mine soon, it's pitted and ugly but beautiful to me :cool:

First handgun I ever bought. I doubt I'll ever sell it. Not super rare, but I've only seen 2-3 more since I've had it.

I don't know how rare they are, but these are the only ones that might qualify.

An Iver Johnson eight-shot .22 Cadet 55-S. I believe the date is 1957. Sirhan Sirhan used a 55-SA to assassinate RFK, which was the same gun but with the addition of a loading gate.

A 1933 Walther PP. Owned by my grandfather, WWII veteran (British), he died when I was in the desert. He carried it in a leather shoulder holster when he lived in San Francisco (I also have the holster). He didn't have a permit, but he was too old and set in his ways to care about silly things like gun laws. It's 100% reliable and very accurate.

Another one that might qualify... 8mm Egyptian Hakim, 1960. I'm still debating whether I should refinish the stock. I'd like to make it look nicer, the only reason I don't is because of the Arabic markings painted on it. Designed for use with a 10 round magazine; the 25 is a custom job.

I was at the Honolulu Police Station registering my firearms one day when an old lady came in with an 1876 Winchester made in 1877 in .45-60. The thing was in mint condition. Im serious when I say this rifle could've fetched over $50,000. Hell, maybe more near $100,000. She said it was her grandfathers.

She wouldn't let any of us (there were several people registering guns) take it, I doubt she knew how valuable it was, she wanted it destroyed because it wasn't registered (it didn't have to be, antique) and she was afraid she'd get in trouble.

Give me a break, I hope the police station donated it to a museum or something. Unlikely though, the Hawaiians probably threw it out back and sawd it in half on their way to getting some more Spam.

I use "white Box Winchester" in my Calico Liberty III and it feeds and shoots great.

It actually is has better balance with the 50 round magazine. I use the 100 rounders on the carbine.

No pictures, but, a town citizen brought a couple of family guns in to show me a few years ago. One, a Winchester 1866 "Yellow Boy" (.44 Henry) used by a relative of his who was a Texas Ranger. Had the mans initials on the frame. Was in pretty good condition. Number two was a strange looking Luger. Had a long barrel with a wooden forend. Said a relative purchased during the early part of the 20th century while working as a physician in Central America. Excellent condition.

It's more of a conversational piece than a practical pistol. I only shot it once, and I did have a few misfeeds - which could have been attributed to lack of lubrication. After that I took the gun and the magazines apart, cleaned and lubed them, but haven't tried shooting it again yet.

I have a gun that no one can give me info on. It is a Walther "Nitro" .22 LR. The gun is a heavy barreled bolt action rifle. I'll get some pics next time I'm at my parents. I also have a CZ in .32, can't remember the model, with all of the Nazi markings and a Mauser with Nazi markings. This gun has alot of elaborate scroll work and all numbers match.
My Grandfather brought the CZ and Mauser back from the war and the Walther was purchased in a pawn shop.

Not particularly rare but is the most unique firearm I own; an Eberti reproduction 1858 Winchester Highwall in .45-70 that I use in silhouette competitions...

http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy35/idowa/Guns/DSCN1113.jpg

And this is rare in the sense that it's my totally custom built elk/moose gun in .35 Whelen built by Al Biesen and based on a pre-64 Model 70 action...

"Oldest" gun I own. Original Springfield trapdoor .45-70, in perfect working condition (unfortunately there's no "collector" value, as it's been cut down from a rifle to a carbine, long ago, before my grandfather got it). I got it from my grandfather, when I was 14. It was my 1st gun, I shot my 1st deer with it in 1964.
http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac102/safcrkr/SpringfieldTrapdoor.jpg

"Rarest"... High Standard Victor, 1st year production (1972). What makes it "rare" is it has the 4.5" factory barrel rather than the standard 5". Not too many were made with the 4.5". I've never seen another one. I bought it for my wife in '73.
http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac102/safcrkr/Victor2.jpg

Most "unique" is a 10-22 that I built from parts last summer. Started with an old beat up 10-22 that I bought for $35, just to get the receiver. I added a heavy barrel, Blackhawk Axiom stock, Leapers 6X scope, then I Duracoated the whole thing in camo.

This one probably qualifies for rarity just because of age. The little silver plate on the stock says 1830. I've had it since 1946. I last fired it in 1954.

Since I collect Remington Nylon rifles I have a few that are kind of rare. Maybe a bit mundane but rare. Info is from www.nylonrifles.com

Nylon 11-Bolt action detachable mag 22 rifle. 22,000 made from 1962-64. Only about 6,000 were made with the longer 24" bbl as shown. Remington also made two other Nylon bolt action rifles. The Nylon 10 was a single shot and the Nylon 12 was a tube fed under the barrel repeater. The Nylon 10 also had a smooth bore version which is very rare.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v489/mac66/df35.jpg

Nylon 66 Seneca Green-For some reason Remington made a run of olive drab looking Nylon 66s in 1959-62. I have one from the first year of production in '59. It is the third rifle from the right in the photo. If you note the brown Nylon 77 next to it on the right. The Nylon 77 was the detachable magazine version of the 66. Made only from 1970-72, only about 15,000 were made. Note that there is also a green stock marked Apache 77 on the left. That was a run of 10 shot detachable mag semi-autos made for K-Mart from 1987-89. Basically a green version of the Nylon 77. They are interesting but not very rare. Also note the Nylon 76 next to the green 77. The 76 was known as the Trailrider and was the only lever action rifle Remington ever made. They command big money now.

How does yours work? I had one and it was a huge Jam-O-Matic:shocked::faint:

Let's put it this way: if I ever plan a mass shooting, it will not be my weapon of choice. Helical magazines are very innovative, but reliability does not seem to be their strong point.

On the other hand, I haven't tried my Calico since I thoroughly cleaned and lubed it (including the trigger group, which was so much fun to put back together). Maybe the next time I take it to the range it will behave better.

This is not too common and it is a family heirloom. My grandpa brought it back from World War II. He passed away in 1987 when I was 2.5 years old or so but apparently he took it off a downed nazi pilot or something.

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg292/gonzoso/IMG_0578.jpg

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg292/gonzoso/IMG_0579.jpg

It is in .380 and I have personally not fired it. My dad uses it for his "walking the dog gun" for some reason.

I think it is the most unsafe weapon we own. There is no safety except the grip safety, which only needs to move like 1mm to activate. There is also nothing preventing the hammer from hitting the firing pin if it were dropped on a loaded chamber. I wouldn't be keen on carrying such a weapon with a loaded chamber, and my normal carry guns are a P3AT and a G26.

I have a real lend lease return M1 Garand. There were 38,001 sent to Great Britain before Pearl Harbor was attacked. They saw home front use by the equivalent of our National Guard, and were never rebuilt. They were sold on the US market in the late 1950's, and early 60's. The metal is just like the day it left the Springfield Armory factory, and all parts are correct. The stock was reworked like many of these were to make them into hunting rifles. There are still some traces of red paint on the inside of the stock. Originally, the British painted a red band on the stocks to ensure only .30-06 ammo was used, and not .303 by accident. There are a lot of M1's with British proof marks that people think are lend lease, but really aren't. There aren't too many of these originals floating around.

By no means did I wanna offend the messenger, I appreciate your informing us of a company that still makes these pistols.:wavey: That site has quite a bit of information on the liberator.

I am just amused by the irony and gumption of a company taking a gun which was designed to be mass produced as cheaply as possible to according to them not even work well or safely, and then sell it for 600$.

The also ship it, with no firing pin channel. So, if you actually want to shoot it, you have to drill your own firing pin hole. You pay $600 for a gun your not supposed to shoot, assume all liability if it blows up, and they say that if you shoot it enough, your pretty much guaranteed to destroy $600. Plus, risk bodily harm and maybe death.

I have a 3rd one 77 numbers away from these two. There were only 753 made with 5 1/2" barrels and 674 with 4 3/4" barrels.

I always thought that having two guns of the same type, with consecutive serial numbers, was kinda cool... but I could never afford buying two guns at the same time. :crying: That's the only way to get consecutive numbers. Or is it. In about 2003 or so, I was at a gun show. I saw a Dan Wesson .44mag revolver for sale. These are "kinda" rare.... just something you don't see too often. It was an early production model so I looked at the serial number to see if it was older than the DW .44 I had owned since 1985. It was only two numbers from the one I owned!!! I had to buy it. Now I'm looking for the one in between those two.:wow: If anyone has a Dan Wesson .44, early production marked "Made in Monson, MA", with a serial number that ends in "19", let's talk.

The revolver looks like a Norwich Arms revolver. Probably chambered for an obsolete .32 rimfire cartridge. The shotgun is a less expensive import aimed at the US market trying to compete with the better quality Westley Richards shotguns. Both from the black powder era. Not much in monitary value for either. But I would give my left you know what to have something like those handed down from my Grandparents. Congrats and cherish.

There is a place that advertises in shotgun news that make old obsolete rounds, you might try them. Then you could shoot it a bit more. Don't know how much it costs either. My 7.7 jap is bad enough.

Revolver is a .22. Not sure if its a long or short. The shotgun is stamped W. Richards. I dunno if that means anything. Google W Richards belgium shotguns and Norwich revolvers and I think all your questions will be answered. Good luck!

45-70


I'd love a nice 450-400, 470, 500 Nitro or some such, but I find 45-70 or 9.3x74R much more useful in America.

Much better lines (aesthetically speaking) than some of the new stuff Merkel and Blaser are coming out with, and at less than half the cost. EAA's importing these, no? I'd have gone with the 9.3 myself, but if we had a local hog population to hunt, I can't imagine a better rifle than that in 45-70.

Is the green propeller a factory option?

There is a place that advertises in shotgun news that make old obsolete rounds, you might try them. Then you could shoot it a bit more. Don't know how much it costs either. My 7.7 jap is bad enough.

Don't know how good they are or anything, but I found the address and contact info.

That one was the next one I was going to post but I don't have a picture of it. Do you have the .22lr inserts for it?

Back when it was first purchased the inserts were almost as expensive as the gun.

Unfortunately, Cabelas and USCG. They're about 3/4 the price of the Merkel.

Now that I've got my grubby little paws on it, I think a SIACE would have been a better choice, for the same ammount of money, but the base model would have been cheaper.


Mine however, is the only 92 Deluxe I've ever seen in 45-70 the rest all seem to be base models. Cabelas didn't have any info on the 92 deluxe. So there can't be very many of them out yet.

Different.

S&W Escort? My mom has one of those with the same case. It's actually the first handgun I ever shot. Stove pipes on the last round so you know you're out of ammo. That's a unique "feature".

If it's not too much trouble. Also an address, and notice of any hazards we may need to be aware of would be helpful.

My absolute favorite in this thread. I've drooled over it before, I'd say it's almost tied for "gun I want the most" with an M16 lower.

Great thread everybody.

My Dad had one of these. Colt Python, nickel plated, 8", .38 special.

He had it drilled for scope many years ago. That damaged its value, but I am glad he had a chance to enjoy it.

My nephew owns it now. I'm glad it stayed in the family.
