    Hello all, new to the forum. My granfather pulled an old shotgun out of the shed today on Christmas. We were trying to figure out around when it was made and any other information.

    I recently purchased this beautiful antique no.32 1875 Marlin Revolver. I took it to the gun store and he was amazed on the condition its in (for how old it is). He said what makes it so great is how the barrel and mechanism that allows the bullet to fire works just as a brand new unused gun...

    Hello, I am new collector who has been searching the internet to find a decently priced Moroccan Snaphaunce Kabyle or camel gun. Do any collectors have one they'd be willing to part with?

    Hi. This is my first post, first time using any forum for that matter. The heavens opened up for me today. A 1936 german luger crossed my way at a deal I couldn't refuse. It's an old bring back, all numbers matching fully functional. It was appraised at 85% condition mainly because the...

    I am hoping to get some more information on this revolver. From the research I have done, I am rather confident that it is a Belgium made, 1840-1890's pinifre revolver. It has two distinct markings, one on the body of the gun, and one on the cylinder. The body has an F over an R, with a crown in...

    I bought a used black powder revolver (replica) and it has been really fun to shoot. The holster he gave me with it fits it nicely but did not come from the manufaturer.
