    Hi, I have pair of these pistols that I inherited. I think they are from 17th century but I am not sure. Can someone help me put them in the right place?

    I believe this is a Spanish flintlock circa 1670's-1750's, but i really have no idea. Does anyone know anything about them? This was apart of my grandpas antique gun collection and appears to be the oldest. Thank, Nick

  5. Shotgun Discussion
    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 have researched it some and the only thing I can find on it so far is that it was belgian made. The only markings...

    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...
  7. Want to Buy Forum
    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? Ideally I would like to spend under 500 USD as this is a gift. I have seen muskets of this type go for all...

    I recently acquired an old long gun, a flintlock musket of some sort. I know nothing about it, minus the fact that "made in belgium" is stamped on the barrel. Any knowledge about this firearm would be useful. Thanks

    Hi everyone I have just been given a Rossi Model 68 (.38 Special) and I was just curious as to the history/age of this gun and any other information you have on it.There isn't that much on YouTube or Google so I figured I might try asking around here. Thanks!
  11. Semi-Auto Handgun Discussion
    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 really don't know anything about it
  14. Blackpowder
    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. I was checking it out and I noticed it was stamped with the Smith "SW" but what I am trying to find information about is the...
  15. Collectors Corner
    Hello, I would like to get an idea for the age and value of an old 12 gauge double barrel shotgun I have. It looks like it is a WM Moore & Co. But I have been reading there is a lot of companies that copied a popular gun of that time period. I took it to a friend who is good with guns and he...

    I have this tiny WORKING pistol. It looks very old and I know really nothing about it. Anyone have any leads that might help me track down info on it?

    We just moved to NW Missouri and was given a handful of antique guns (shotguns, rifles and revolver). I am looking for an expert in NW Missouri region to restore these guns. They haven't been used for decades so they need professional TLC. Thanks.

    I found an old Norwich Arms .32 cal rim fire revolver at a local antique shop. Condition is pretty poor. Can anyone shed some knowledge or maybe a value on it?
  19. Collectors Corner
    It was found around the 1950's in Louisiana around where the Huey P Long bridge was being constructed. It has a plastic handle. Thanks!

    We found this flint lock musket (rifle?) in my grandfather's closet. Little over 4 ft in length. It was tagged "1747" though the tag has since torn off. Flint sparks when fired. Seems in decent condition. The markings are hard to make out. One might say "Willet". I'd love to learn more about...
