Update February 19, 2018
On the health front, slow and steady progress, and I will now be able to put in my regular hours wednesdays and saturdays.
Finally good news! The Crown Counsel in our case has just officially announced a Stay of Proceedings! While they were not willing to listen two years ago, I guess now they were, and have dropped all charges. Our guns and other property are to be returned, and a lot of guns that were on hold can now be transferred :)Lots more guns coming just as soon as I get myself (and a couple helpers) down to the RCMP station to haul them back :) Coming - Ruger 10-22, SMLE 303, Savage Mark II 22, Savage M110 300 mag, Savage Model 12 308, and more..
This immaculate Ruger Model 77 Hawkeye is the scarce (None in Canada that I can find) wood-stocked 223. With the scope and rings now gone, this beautiful rifle with mounts is not $1200 any more, but Now $800 out the door!
Now here's a rare one for collectors and shooters! A Savage 1899 (A) made in 1904 in 303 Savage. Has the rare special ordered shotgun butt plate (serialed to the rifle as is the forestock), and the round circle in the cartridge counter window. Stock was cracked and professionally repaired with two pins at rear of tang. Completely stripped and professionaaly cleaned. Bore has strong rifling and is quite shootable, although not pristine. $650 - trades?
This one is perfect for vintage rifle matches, with a great bore. It's a 1913 BSA-built SMLE with all original wood, etc. Does show its age externally, but that just makes it better :) The stock disk was removed so the Huns couldn't tell how many had been made. It proved to be an excellent shooter, and sometime in its past it acquired a more usable front sight blade (easily replaceable with the stock sight if wanted) $590 - trades?
Gallery dir='long_guns/benelli_Supernova_2'}The famous Benelli Supernova Tactical pump 12 gauge is the ultimate Bear gun! Half a box of trap loads through it to make sure it works - this is $1069 plus tax and shipping in the store - that's well over $1200 from most gun shops - Save $250 by coming to visit me :) Now $949 - trades? Maybe...
Rare and special doesn't even start do describe this 1895 Model 1894 in 30 WCF (30-30). The serial number places it among the very first Smokeless 94's made, when they finally got the Nickel Steel and the heat treatment figured out for the barrels. 26" full octagon profile barrel, definitely rifling still there, but sure not shiny, factory tang sight (worth $300 by itself), curved buttplate, wonderful wood. Restored by my friend Jim Ford and like me, he's realizing he's running out of time to play with them all...It is abolutely gorgeous! Now $1795 - same price as a new Japanese-made carbine, and many times the gun ..
These are becoming impossible to find - a lovely Savage Model 99-C Series A in 308. Impressive bore and internals, with a new Boyd's rear stock (Pretty, as is the front), metal showing a little use, but certainly not enough to warrant rebluing. Still some case-hardening visible on lever.... One detachable magazine, Weaver bases as well as the factory adjustable open sights. $699 trades?...
This Kriss Vector in 45ACP sports a Bushnell Red Dot sight and a very nice High intensity light/forward handle. Three Glock 10 rd mags (also have more). These are so cool! Fascinating mechanically, and fast/soft shooting. Non-restricted, too! $1899 - Will maybe consider a trade-in :)
This Mossberg Model 590 Tactical 12 Gauge (2 3/4" and 3") is almost new although stored for a few years. ATI adjustable stock plus the factory speed-feed one - a $150 value - $690 - trades?
stainless and synthetic Savage Model 12 in 308, the heavy long barreled varmint/sniper model almost unfired, and pristine. I used a lefthand version of this rifle for 1000 yard competition and loved it! Wore a 4200 Elite scope in 2.5 - 16 power that felt as good as my Swarovski - $1600 for the set - rifle only- $1100 - no trades... Scope now gone :)
A classic Winchester M24. This one just misses being a collectible! Someone reblued it, killing a lot of collector value :( However, what that leaves is a classic great-shooting SXS Winchester in 12 gauge (2 3/4"). What a grouse, pheasant or rabbit gun! Tight, great bores, - $329 - trades?
On hold, Andrew :)
Very few boxes of trap loads have been through this immaculate Browning Silver Hunter 12 gauge shotgun. In stock form this one is over $1500 by the time (at least in BC) you get it out to the pickup. Added is the Fiber Optic Front sight (Green, my favourite) as well as the gorgeous upgraded stock (that lets you reduce the LOP by almost an inch for that youngster or slighter person). $1190 out the door...Sold - Kris :)
A lovely Tavor 223 Model 21. This is the famous Israeli Model TAR-21 223 bullpup rifle that uses AR15 mags and sets the bar for all bullpup rifles. One Pmag, nice soft case with mag pouches, IWI cleaning kit - very few rounds. Non-restricted of course, $2100 new, this one is 1580.00 - trades welcome... Sold - Scott :)
A real tack-driver! This 24" barreled Remington 700 BDL in 22-250 is like a laser beam out to over 400 meters on coyotes and wolves and has a fantastic, light and crisp trigger.. Pretty darn nice bore, Leupold mounts and 1" rings, a Limb-Saver recoil pad and and the heavy barrel make this rifle almost recoilless! Really a joy to shoot - and did I mention it's incredibly accurate? Now $599 - trades? Now sold :)
The directory 'Gallery/long_guns/HB_Remington_700_22_250' does not exist. Check your parameters.
A rare and collectible Mauser Model 71 Carbine in 43 Mauser caliber. Dated 1876, serial number 9241C (all matching - these craftsmen even numbered all the large screws!). Unit Designation is 8.H.90 which is the 8th Hussar Regiment of Imperial Germany, a mounted Cavalry Unit (this likely accounts for a few of the stock scratches - these were carried off a saddle attachment :) There are a LOT of stock cartouches. The rifle was manufactured by Gestern Waffenfabrik, the bore has strong rifling and is excellent for the age. The forend cap is a very well-made reproduction and really does look original - especially as this is not a numbered part. $980 - a trade might be possible... On hold, Jim :)
This trap/skeet combo Remington Model 1100 is absolutely fabulous! The wood is among the best I've ever seen with gorgeous swirl patterns and the bluing is near perfect. Both barrels are 26" - the Skeet barrel is Cylinder Bore and the trap is Full Choke. Hmmm - grouse and rabbit :) Over 25 years old but still a gorgeous, competitive shotgun. 12 Gauge, 2 3/4" chamber - $980 - trades? Sold, Jim :)
