Long Guns  
 

Update  June 23, 2017

 

1965 Winchester 94 in 30-30.  Very Very nice for the year - metal excellent (bore still has bluing ) wood untouched, and excellent plus!  Note the front sight hood  :)

 This 24" barreled 300 Winchester Magnum Custom takes me back to the gorgeous Mauser-based sporting rifles of days gone by with their superb metal and wood finishing, and their slick controlled-feed actions...This almost unused Parker-Hale built example is one of the nicest I've ever handled and can easily be compared to Rigby rifles, which are pretty nice! Lovely-patterned walnut stock with cut checkering and a perfect palm-swell, nice grip-cap and a professionally built and installed muzzle brake (easily removable - if this were mine I'd install a muzzle cap for hunting  - available from Dlask for $15 - although a brake on a 300WM is not a bad idea for range use - I guess I'm a wuss!) $799 - trades considered  :)

    A rare and collectible Mauser Model 71 Carbine in 11mm 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 :)  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...

  Now this is a muzzle brake I can appreciate!  This Model 116 Savage is in 300 Winchester Magnum but feels like a 308 with the muzzle brake activated.  The nice part is you can, with a twist of the brake, deactivate it to give you all the kick and noise you want!  This lovely and well-maintained rifle even comes with owners manual, is stainless/synthetic with a gorgeous fluted barrel, high quality sling and swivels, AND a nice 3-9 scope. Shows very few rounds, and will still outlast pretty well any shooter.  Detachable magazine, too!    $690, trades may be considered...

  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? 

 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 -

Here is a VZ858 "Canadian Sporter" in 7.62 x 39 with the short 7.5" barrel (restricted, of course).  This rifle has a folding stock, AR 15 mag adapter and 10 rd mag, muzzle brake/flash hider, nice leather sling and a red dot sight.  Almost unused and very hard to find, these guns are so much fun to shoot, especially with the 10 rd mags..   I see only the long ones now, and at $1200 in stock form.  This one has almost $300 added to it and it's going for $1099 ... 

  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 ...

  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 also from Jim's personal collection, another true restoration, this 1958 (Which makes it one of the impossible-to-find and sought by knowledgeable shooters pre 64's) Winchester 94 is very tight and smooth, with lovely internals and promises to be a great shooter.  These are what Winchester hope their new Japanese-built (since 2011) Model 94's - at $1500 - $1700 - will bring back.   Not quite, although I do like a lot of Japanese rifles.  This one is Now $790 ...

My restoration guy, Jim Ford, is a lever-action aficionado, but is now parting with this 1909 Winchester Model 1894 30 WCF (30-30) long barreled rifle. Like all the guns Jim kept, it's immaculate inside, too, and its 26" barrel lets it reach out - and it balances sooo nice  :)  You'd carry this one by the forestock, as intended - not the receiver...You'll pay $1500 to $1700 for a new Japanese-made Model 94 carbine with that "lovely cross-bolt safety" as a bonus! You will never find one like this.  Let's find this one a new home - Now $1400 ...

  This one's the sought-after Police Tactical Remington 700 with the 26" match barrel, Bell & Carlson stock, 20 MOA rail, and in 308, of course!  Very few rounds, well under 500, with a gorgeous bore and internals.  An oversized bolt handle makes for effortless, fast follow-up shots.  These rifles will actually shoot well up to 1000 yards with the right ammo, so no excuses!  $1500 new, this one's a deal at $1050...  on hold, Sean..

 

 

 

 

 

 

  The ulimate truck gun!  Not so pretty you'll fret over it, in a great caliber (308 Winchester), Mauser type action with controlled-round feed, nice open sights (but drilled and tapped for a scope) this Midland Sporter by Parker-Hale shows some use but still has a great bore and internals.  Now $300 - trades? On hold, Blaine  :}

 

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...On hold  -  see below.  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 - see below.

This Weatherby Vanguard in 270 Winchester is absolutely like new!  Perfect bore and innards, less than a box of ammo through it.  Weaver mounts, lovely trigger, and that stock looks and feels gorgeous.  Now $569 - trades?  On hold - Cary :)

    This stainless, fluted Remington 700 Varmint model in 22-250 looks new and almost is!  Less than 20 rounds, with weaver rails, it's not even broken in yet, this retails for $1200 new - now $990...  On hold

 We also (in April 2016) had a visit from the RCMP after our alarm system was activated while we were suddenly called away for medical reasons. No, not crooks, a faulty door :)  While we were in X-Ray, we shut off our cell phones as instructed, so the alarm company couldn't reach us and called the cops. In the process, a number of guns were seized by the RCMP, and some still remain in their custody.  These consist of long guns, and some restricted and prohibited as well. There are still some privately owned guns included, and I urge the owners to claim them from the RCMP.

 

Other than that, we are dealing with the legal aspects through our solicitor and hope for a speedy resolution - looks like Jan-Feb 2018 now...  :)
