Long Guns  
 

Update  May 17, 2017

 We look forward to a vastly improved 2017!!  Most of 2016 was nasty - health issues pretty well non-stop, starting Christmas Eve 2015 in the ER.  Then out of commission from late September and finally just back at it in December,with reduced hours.   Lots of catching up to do, but feeling way better  :)

    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...

 

  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?

  Always wanted a 38 but no Restricted licence?  Here's a Swedish Husqvarna Model 38 Mauser in 6.5x55 - my all-time favourite caliber!  This lovely carbine looks new, and keeping in mind Sweden's neutral stance in WW2 - no wonder!  Very light etching in the bore - storage, maybe a good cleaning is in order -  but I've never seen one of these that wasn't a tack-driver.  $529 - trades?  Note - I have managed to acquire a proper, origial leather sling complete, and it's included...  Sold -David  :)

  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 -

This as-new Savage Model 110BA in 338 Lapua Magnum has  repeatedly hit an 8" plate at 1441 yards and with less than 60 rounds on it is barely broken in.  Wore a Leupold VX-3 8.25x25x50 scope with duplex reticle (and a separate green laser for close-up Zombie attacks)  -  Now gone  :) plus a very nice bipod.  Comes with a $300 US Blackhawk drag bag and one magazine.    Drag bag now gone...The bare rifle is $3000 new - $2999 for the works - or $2400 without the scope ($800 for it, and it's gone)  Now sold  :)

This MKA Turkish AR15 look-alike is really the Model 1919 semiautomatic 12 gauge shotgun.  Very nicely done, and smooth shooting, this one comes with 3 magazines...  $890  Now sold  :) 

  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)  a decent leather sling, 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, 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 ...

  Here is some heavy duty firepower for AR fans!  This Remington R25 is a .308 powered assault/sniper rifle with very few rounds and some really nice upgrades. The Magpul buttstock is my favourite adjustable one, comes with a friction brake, so no wiggle! The BCM charging handle really helps, and the JP Enterprises adjustable trigger (single stage) is fantastic! A Hogue grip, picatinny 30mm scope rings make this very usable.  One 5 rd magazine, I have numerous 20/5 DPMS Panther ones at $40. This is a restricted rifle, of course, so no Buffalo hunting with this one  :(Scope now gone... Rifle and mounts/rings Now $1300 - no Trades... 

  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... 

  Recognize this one?  Of course!  It's my 6.5x55 Savage-based custom long range rifle, and the new owner really didn't get to shoot it beyond 100 yards as his club's range was unsuitable...  Traded back to me on a shorter rifle...  Very smooth action, nice trigger, 27" Shilen stainless barrel with less than 2000 rounds on it (well over 2000 very accurate rounds left to go),   professionally bedded, oversized left hand bolt handle and certainly perfect for those lefties among you, (although I shoot it right handed off the bench as a lot of dedicated long range shooters do), and a stock modified and vastly improved in the pistol grip area by my friend Jim Ford - actually intended for my righthanded grip (I have smaller hands.)  This is an extremely accurate rifle - I just couldn't shoot well enough any more.  I used 142 grain Sierra Match kings and H1000 powder, but my sub 7" groups (@1000 meters) eventually grew to over 12" with no appreciable barrel erosion or wear. Some days better, but, although I have friends who can still make it perform, I sure can't   At well over 70 I just couldn't shoot well enough any more.  One solution would to shorten the barrel to 20" and settle for some 100 yard shooting, but it'd be such a shame... $790 - trades?   Hmmm - I just found a bag of new primed brass that goes with it...  Now sold - Doug  :) 

  This Howa Model 1500 in 30-06 is a lovely rifle, and in my opinion has more attention to detail and nicer workmanship than its half-brother, the Weatherby Vanguard, itself a wonderful rifle.  Accuracy from either is phenomenal, and I have never heard anything negative about reliability.  The factory-fitted Hogue overmolded stock feels wonderful, (You can buy one for less than $300 for your rifle, too!)  and the action is exceptionally smooth.  The 30-06 chambering is great for Moose, Elk, Deer or even large bears, and a great selection of lighter-bullet ammo makes it pretty useful for predators, too!  Now $399, trades considered...  Gone, Shayne...

 

  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...  :)
