Manufactured by Aichi Tokei Denki under supervision of Toyokawa Naval Arsenal in 1944 with SN 4233 (This SN can be updated with ATF). Characters forward of drum translate to “Model 1 for large aircraft”, which means probably a multi engined aircraft. Characters to rear of drum translate to “Type 92 7.7mm flexible aircraft machine gun”. These markings normally are surrounded by an oval cartouche. This arm is unusual in that no cartouche is present, probably because it is of late war manufacture. Accessories include one British made 47 rnd drum which is commonly found on Japanese Lewis guns, 1 spare, non Japanese hand grip in fair condition, and 2 rear spider sights. Front sight post is modern fabrication but displays well, and is functional. The other accessory is a German “Music stand” AA tripod with adapter for this arm.

Hand grip has dark brown wood showing only small dings and handling marks. Rear handle is leather covered. Leather is in good serviceable condition, oil cap has “LG” over “VSM” marking. Spider sight on gun is in good condition as is the spare spider sight. Bolt is in the white and is still very serviceable.

WONDERFUL REPRODUCTION OF THE RARE MODEL 1866 1″ PERCUSSION GATLING GUN ON FIELD CARRIAGE. Cal. 1″. Spectacular hand crafted reproduction 1″ percussion M1866 Gatling gun with 1871 improvements, six 43-1/2″ bbls and 3-5/8″ trunnions with brass housing. mounted on an accurately reproduced 1860’s artillery field carriage which was the same carriage as used on the orig guns. This is the only known reproduction of the now believed extinct M 1866 1″ Percussion Gatling gun. Only sixty-two of the orig 1″ Gatling guns were ever made, with sixty-one of them made in 1866 and one more in 1871. Reference The Gatling Gun Notebook, Hughes, p. 6 & 11. Six of the orig guns were made at the Miles H. Greenwood Foundry in Cincinnati, Ohio which burned down with all the blueprints & patterns destroyed. Production was moved to the Cincinnati Type Foundry Works where there were thirteen more made and then the Cooper Firearms Mfg. Co. made eight more. Later in 1866 production was transferred to Colt’s Patent Firearms Mfg. Co. in Hartford, apparently where the balance of the production was completed. Most of these were sold as military surplus to Francis Bannerman in 1902 who resold them to foreign governments and presumably they are now destroyed. Percussion Gatling guns use a separate loaded chamber with percussion musket cap on a nipple at the closed end and are fed from a stick magazine style hopper into the rotating breech mechanism which fires them in their turn and drops the empty out the bottom for re-use. This fine reproduction Gatling is accompanied by 24 machined steel chambers with an O-ring groove around the front end for gas seal. Also accompanied by two of the sheet metal stick magazine hoppers, and 2 boxes of cleaning gear & spare parts. This carriage is by J.C. Bidwell of Pittsburgh and has about 59″ diameter wheels with an approx. 78″ wide axle with standard artillery trail that is approx. 100″ from tip of trail to front of wheels. Consignor states that this Gatling gun has been fired each year at the North/South Skirmish Association Cannon Shoots and is extremely destructive to the targets, more so than the 6-pounder cannons. CONDITION: Fine and complete. Has been fired but not abused. Retains most of its orig finish. Carriage is outstanding retaining most of its orig military green paint. A remarkably well made 20th century manufacture of the model 1866 1″ Gatling gun which, if one were available, would be valued in the six figures. 4-35108 JR (15,000-25,000)

*U.S. MARKED BARRETT MODEL 82A1 5O CAL SEMI-AUTO RIFLE. SN 0896. Cal. 50. 33″ bbl. This 82A1 Barrett SN 896 is one of the orig Desert Storm Barrett 50’s that were traded in for rebuild after the conflict and later sold to a collector. It is a standard configuration Barrett 50 with folding iron sights and a scope rail. It is also equipped with an adjustable bipod, carry handle and one magazine. From all the information we could gather, these rifles are few and far between and command a premium over the standard commercial Barrett. The cataloguer was able to verify the following with Barrett Firearms: Serial number 896 is within the range of those purchased in a contractual agreement to be deployed in Middle East. This rifle is in near-excellent condition as indicated so it has obviously been refinished, although it can be assumed it was done at the factory it can not be confirmed. Also included is a a Pelican 1750 hard case. PROVENANCE: Tom Clinton Collection. CONDITION: Rifle retains 93-95% of its re-applied finish, with only a few minor scuffs and wear marks present. Pistol grip, rubber butt plate and carry handle are all in near-excellent condition, along with the rest of this rifle. Mechanics are crisp, bore is bright and shiny. 4-37371 (9,500-12,500)

Mounted with synthetic pistol grip, a folding metal stock and large synthetic forend. Equipped with green nylon adjustable sling.

However, the SPAS-12 was not reclassified as a Title II firearm; therefore, re-sales and transfers within the country are unobstructed by federal legislation. Additionally, in 2000 Franchi ceased production of the SPAS-12 altogether making it very desirable for the collector. CONDITION: Very fine. Bbl, mag tube, and shroud retain most of their orig Parkerized finish with a few minor handling marks. Receiver retains most of its black anodized finish with a few minor handing marks. Metal folding stock retains most of its Parkerized finish. Synthetic pistol grip and forend show only a few minor handling marks. Mechanics seem to work fine.

The -3 op-rod shows 98% of the same dark green finish as the receiver and other components.

Front and rear handguard assemblies also show near-excellent with no significant marring. Trigger housing shows 80% of the orig green finish. Mechanics are crisp. T/E gauge is just under 2, and the bore is bright but would clean better. 4-37331 BK49 (7,000-12,000)

*VERY LATE SPRINGFIELD M-1 (SERVICE) GARAND. SN 5978301. Cal. 30. 24″ bbl.

*ORIGINAL WWII SPRINGFIELD M-1 GARAND. SN 2089781. Cal. 30. 24″ bbl. This 2 million / GAW-inspected Garand shows to be a near-excellent orig gun.

*INLAND XB SERIES PRESENTATION CARBINE WITH EXTRA LONG BBL. SN XB16. Cal. 30. 21-5/8″ bbl and extra long wood. This presentation carbine was manufactured and given out by the Inland division of General Motors. It is a high-polish blue finish, except where otherwise noted, and retains all Inland parts, including the custom made stock and handguard. The receiver retains the U.S. legend on the front receiver ring with the rear of receiver being marked “INLAND” over “XB16”. The extra long bbl retains an Inland front sight with no bbl markings and a swaged gas cylinder assembly that is similar to a Rock-ola. Front bbl band is a Type 2 that is unmarked with the provision for the sling swivel removed. Rear sight is a Type 2, milled with “PI” marking. Trigger housing has a barely legible (polished) Inland logo with a serrated magazine catch, checkered safety, checkered trigger and Type 2 dog-leg hammer. Operating slide is a Type B with “PI” stamping and is checkered at the grasping handle. Butt stock is assembled from two pieces and is jointed together 6-5/8″ in front of the magazine cut-out and 8-3/4″ from the front tip in a very fine overlapping style with a reinforcing insert on each side. Stock is carved and checkered throughout with the date of “1945” on the left side. It appears that there was a plaque on the right side of the receiver that has since fallen out of the recess. Stock also has a relief carving of an eagle in flight with the Inland shield grasped in his talons. Handguard is also handmade and is 12-5/8″ long, not counting the tin, and is also carved with the Inland shield in the sight groove. PROVENANCE: Tom Clinton Collection. CONDITION: Barreled receiver retains approx. 95% of the high-polish blue with some slight wear from being fired and also a small, approx. 1/2″ round rust spot underneath the bbl band. Trigger housing also retains better than 95% of the same high-polish blue, with only the hammer retaining factory blue. Bolt and operating slide also show better than 95% of the high-polish blue, with the body of the slide not being polished. Butt stock and handguard are in excellent condition, with only the slightest of scuffing at all, with the recoil shield and butt plate showing about all of their bright blued finish. Mechanics are crisp, bore is bright and shiny. Magazine is a standard “IS” marked. A very interesting carbine that I truly wish I had some history on. 4-37342 BK29 (4,000-8,000)

It shows new with no signs of ever being fired, with a non-operational (tip cut off) firing pin. Rifle is stocked in a presentation quality stock with “HI” markings and the 2-rivet handguard, marked “IO”, being of the same curly grain. Accompanied by an Inland MFG DIV hanging tag stating gun’s SN “XB-25 to Mr. Bittner”. A 1975 dated letter from the Inland Div of General Motors identifies Mr.Eugene Bittner as Supv. of Work Standards Dept. who retired in the early 1960s. Gun was apparently purchased from the Bittner family and subsequently made its way to the OH Gun Coll Show in 1965, per a handwritten note which also accompanies the lot.

*UNDERWOOD PRESENTATION M-1 CARBINE. SN JMH. Cal. 30. Standard 18″ bbl. This presentation M-1 carbine shows near-new condition overall with virtually no signs of use. The letters “JMH” are panagraph-engraved as the serial number. This was fairly common on presentation guns. This carbine appears to be 100% Underwood manufacture from stem to stern and 100% correct for its 11-43 bbl date. It retains a Type 1 bbl band, which is unmarked, with the correct flip sight that still shows white in the punch marks with some grease on the leaf. The receiver shows a couple of small holes on the bottom where the drill had broken through while drilling the spring tube. This is common on Underwoods. The trigger housing is of the brazed-and-stamped variety with a “U” stamped on the front of the clip guide with the trigger, mag catch and safety being parkerized. The pins are blue. The hammer, sear and spring plunger are in the white. The Type 1 slide is also parkerized with the hold-open being blue. The flat Underwood bolt is blued. The low-wood buttstock is marked “MU” in the channel with no government inspectors. This is correct for a presentation gun. The upper handguard is also “MU” marked.

*SCARCE UNDERWOOD M-1 “X” NUMBERED “TOOL-ROOM” CARBINE. SN X007. Cal. 30. 18″ bbl. This carbine shows the very earliest of features that are rarely seen on Underwood carbines, such as a dog-leg hammer and a trigger housing retaining clip on the plunger. The gun shows all correct very early Underwood features, such as blued flat bolt and Type 1 operating slide, as well as push-button safety and unmarked magazine catch. Rifle does exhibit an oddity in having 3 punch marks present on the top of the receiver: one on the front receiver ring just below the legend, one on the rear receiver ring just behind the bolt, and the third being just below the SN on the receiver tail. Another oddity is that it has the SN stamped in the bottom of the trigger housing between the safety and the magazine catch. Type 1 sights and bbl band are correct for this era rifle. The buttstock is a high-wood /”I”-cut with the only marking being a small letter “u” in the channel. The upper handguard is a wider groove than normally seen, 2-rivet handguard, with a “U” stamped in the bottom. These X prefix examples are thought to be factory tool room or experimental development guns. PROVENANCE: Tom Clinton Collection. CONDITION: Rifle shows near-new with only the slightest wear to the metal from disassembly and dry operation. It retains better than 98% of the orig parkerizing on all metal, with the small parts being blued. Buttstock shows near-new with only a couple of minor rub marks present, with the handguard showing also near-new with one very small blemish just above the sling. Sling also shows near-new.

There are no markings on the receiver other than the SN on the left side underneath the wood line. Bbl is “WP” proofed, as well the “W” mark for Winchester, and retains a Type 3 bbl band with bayonet lug with no markings. This receiver appears to be forged as a T-3 sniper receiver, as there are no lines to indicate having the bases silver-soldered on. There are proof marks on the underside of the bbl and front of receiver. Bolt assembly is a flat blued Winchester-marked bolt with the firing pin acting rather sluggishly, presumably from being packed with grease. Trigger housing is complete Winchester with all working parts being parkerized, with the exception of the spring and pins. The spring is in the white and pins and sear are blued. Safety is the lever type with the mag catch being M-2. Buttstock is a pot-belly M-2 stock with a white sling that may be British. The operating rod is standard Type B Winchester. PROVENANCE: Tom Clinton Collection. CONDITION: Bbl and receiver retain better than 98% of their orig parkerized finish, showing only minor wear from having the slide actuated.

INLAND M-1 CARBINE CUTAWAY. SN NSN. Cal. 30. 18″ bbl. This rifle is a June of 1942 (1st month) Inland factory cutaway. It retains all of the features that are in a 1st-month production, including serrated magazine catch, a checkered safety, a Type 1 dog-leg hammer, a sear with no hole and a trigger housing retaining pin with clip.

*M-1 CARBINE WITH JOHNSON BAYONET ASSY. SN 1706060. Cal. 30. 18″ bbl. This appears to be a 1943 /44 Rock-ola receiver with all Inland components of the period installed on it, which has had the front of the bbl slightly turned and had a 1941 Johnson bayonet lug installed on it. Where this took place I do not know, but it is in the period of when they would have been experimenting with bayonet attachments on this rifle.

Rifle is equipped with a flip sight and Type 1 bbl band and also features a low-wood Inland stock and 2-rivet handguard. It is also accompanied by a Type 3 sling with all of the metal components being a high-polish blue. PROVENANCE: Tom Clinton Collection.

*SAGINAW S.G. M-1 CARBINE. SN X8084911. Cal. 30. 18″ bbl. This Saginaw gear carbine is a typical arsenal rebuild, with the exception that the SN has been changed for some unknown reason. The SN shows as X8084911. According to the Carbine Club Newsletter no. 332, dated November of 2005, a possible explanation is that these X-8 million numbers were issued to field service depots and rebuild facilities for the purpose of restamping carbines with damaged or mutilated SNs. A copy of this letter will accompany this rifle, as it is pictured by SN. The rifle is assembled as follows: The Saginaw receiver with the aforementioned number with the typical “SG” marking is on the left side of the receiver. The SN is stamped both underneath the rear sight, as well as in front of the rear sight, with no maker name on the rear receiver. The rear sight is a Type 3 stamped, with the front sight being a Rock Island replacement. The trigger housing is Underwood in its entirety, with the exception of a contract flip safety and a late-war replacement magazine catch. The bolt is Underwood and retains a re-parkerized finish. The operating slide is “PI” marked and a Type B. Butt stock is an IBM with the letter “J” in the channel with a “RIA / EB” rebuild mark. The handguard is a 4-rivet with an added “IO” mark on the bottom. PROVENANCE: Tom Clinton Collection. CONDITION: Barreled receiver retains approx. 88-90% of the orig finish, with the majority of wear coming from having the slide actuated. Flat bolt is re-parkerized with a blued extractor.

EXTREMELY RARE PROTOTYPE BOLO BAYONET FOR THE MODEL 1915. Rare & unusual bayonet with 15-13/16″ bolo blade with the 1905 style handguard that has integral muzzle ring and bottom or lower latch. It has the rough turned uncheckered walnut scales with a hooked, hawk, beak shaped pommel. Left ricasso is marked “SA” over a flaming bomb which surmounts the date “1912”. Right ricasso is marked only “US” with no serial number as would have been on a production item. Knowledgeable and authoritative authors & collectors have reached a general consensus that this is one of the 52 bolo bayonets manufactured at Springfield Armory in fiscal year 1913 and that they are probably the test models for the Model 1915 which were produced in the 1916-17 time frame in very limited numbers. This bayonet in most respects, especially dimensionally, resembles the Model 1915 with the exception of the low mount latch and lacking a serial number. It has the 1/8″ polish line on the blade at the ricasso. CONDITION: Appears to be new, retaining virtually all of its orig bright finish with polish lines in the orig configuration. Edge appears to have been sharpened. Handguard, scales & pommel retain virtually all of their orig arsenal finish. Altogether an extremely rare & important developmental piece in the evolution of Springfield bayonets. 4-37699 JR179 (12,500-17,500)

*RARE NORTH AMERICAN MODEL 1911 SEMI-AUTO PISTOL. SN 66. Cal. 45 ACP. One of only 100 production North American Arms Co. built 1911 pistols during WWI. These 100 pistols were built by North American Arms in the old Ross Rifle Factory in Quebec, Canada under contract from U.S. Government for 500,000 pistols. This limited number was produced probably as test & machinery setup pieces prior to commencing production. Just as the factory was ready to begin producing pistols the Armistice of 1918 was signed and the contract was immediately suspended. A settlement was reached between U.S. Government & North American Arms & no additional 1911 style pistols were ever produced by that company. In total there appears to have been approx. 104 pieces produced with the first 100 numbered consecutively from 1 to 100 and additional pieces, made for presentation, were numbered “111”, “222”, “333”, etc. in multiple digits. A few of these presentation pieces are known. Regardless, the North American 1911 is the single most rare model ever produced under the 1911 design and is only found in the most advanced collections. This pistol was brought home from European theatre by Pvt. Harlan Benner who was a truck driver for the 208th Field Artillery at Normandy. He was driving supplies to the front & returning bodies to the beach and removed this pistol from the body of a deceased officer. He stated he mailed it home in pieces. Built almost precisely like a standard 1911, with only minor, subtle differences. It has a standard 5″ bbl with normal lug & link with seven lands & grooves & is completely unmarked. Slide is marked on left side “MANUFACTURED BY / NORTH AMERICAN ARMS CO. LIMITED / QUEBEC, CANADA.”. The word “LIMITED” has what appears to be a capital “L” with shorter remaining letters and the last three are tapered in descending height. This is an identifying feature for authentic North American Arms 1911’s. It has orig fixed sights with serial number at rear left side behind grasping grooves. It has a long smooth trigger & long spur hammer without checkering & short spur grip safety with straight mainspring housing without lanyard loop, all of which are identifying features for the North American 1911. Additionally the serial number is also found on left side of heel, under grip & adjacent to grip escutcheon. Third location of serial number is on left side of trigger and is obscured by frame and was not disassembled to ascertain its presence. Fitted with large diamond checkered walnut grips and accompanied by an orig 2-tone Colt style magazine. Slide lock has serrated top edge & bears the number “46” on inside. Thumb safety is checkered on top & bottom. This is truly one of the great rarities in automatic pistol collecting. Accompanied by a 1920’s-30’s period Audley flap holster with long belt loop marked on back with maker’s name & a “1914” patent date. Flap is attached to a wire loop which passes through belt loop & when flipped open falls away clearing access to pistol. Pistol is held in place by a spring loaded nickeled brass catch through trigger guard & must be depressed before pistol can be removed. CONDITION: Good. Slide retains 20-25% orig blue with balance a mottled gray/brown patina. Frame retains 10-15% thin orig blue, only in most sheltered areas, with balance a mottled gray/brown patina. Rear edge of slide spring housing is battered. Recoil spring is weak & should be replaced before anyone would attempt to fire it. Grips show heavy wear & dark oil staining but are sound. Bottom right side grip screw is battered & cannot be removed. Mechanics are fine, strong dark bore. Holster is dry with heavy flexing on flap & top of belt loop with nicks & scratches elsewhere and loose stitching around stud reinforcing, otherwise is sound, missing the leg strap. 4-35876 JR343 (8,000-12,000)

The O.S.S. was the clandestine arm of the U.S. Military which infiltrated agents and groups of agents behind the lines to organize resistance and disrupt enemy supply lines. This shipment was made just a couple of months prior to the surrender of Japan at the end of WWII and further research could likely disclose the mission of this organization in China.

*EXTRAORDINARILY RARE CIA DEER GUN CLANDESTINE SINGLE SHOT PISTOL. SN NSN. Cal.9mm. 1-7/8″ blued steel bbl. Single shot. Manufactured around 1964 as an updated version of the famous Liberator pistols which were dropped behind enemy lines in WWII. The “Deer” gun was designed to be dropped in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam war. The guns never made it to Vietnam and the CIA denies their existence. It is rumored that the guns were destroyed and only a handful survived. The frame is one piece cast aluminum with raised checkering on the grip area which was hollow to house a few extra rounds of ammunition. A groove runs down a ramp on top for sighting. The barrel unscrews for loading and removing the empty casing. A cocking knob was pulled until cocked. The aluminum trigger featured no trigger guard. Included with the pistol are a set of orig engineering drawings which may be orig blueprints. Copies of the orig instructions are also included, which show how to use the gun against enemy with a hammer and sickle on his sleeve. This is an extremely rare pistol that is a piece of the CIA’s Clandestine history and a “crown jewel” in any US Military collection. PROVENANCE: Tom Clinton Collection. CONDITION: Fine. Bbl retains 99% orig bright blue. Aluminum frame is in near new condition with very little wear. The rubber butt cap which housed an ejector rod that fit into the hollow grip is missing, as is the “horse collar” safety device which was a separate piece that held back the firing knob. 4-37367 BS35 (10,000-15,000)

*EXTREMELY FINE OSS LIBERATOR PISTOL. SN NSN. Cal. 45 ACP. Small, compact single shot pistol manufactured in 1942 by the Guide Lamp Division of General Motors. The pistols are made of stamped sheet metal, spot welded together with a 4″ stepped smooth bore bbl, crude fixed sights with a simple striker firing mechanism that has a heavy zinc striker head. The OSS (Office of Strategic Services) was the clandestine predecessor to today’s CIA and the primary American agency running agents and disinformation programs against the Axis powers during the war. They came up with the idea to produce a cheap but effective single shot pistol to drop behind the lines to partisans to be used to obtain better quality weapons from the enemy. In May of 1942 the Government signed a contract with General Motors for 1 million of these pistols which General Motors was able to complete in just about four weeks at a cost of $1.72 each. The pistols were then packaged in a waxed, waterproof carton with a cartoon-like wordless instruction sheet, 10-rds of ammunition and a small dowel to be used as an ejector for the empty cases. Most of the entire production was shipped to England and the Pacific but little is known of their actual use. It is reported that most of the pieces shipped to England were never used and after the war were melted down for scrap. Obviously any that were dropped behind enemy lines were probably all lost and with the destruction of the shipments to England, very few survive today, especially complete units. CONDITION: Extremely fine. Retains virtually all of its gray metal finish with a minor spot or two of discoloration. Butt trap cover is intact. Mechanics are fine, smooth clean bore. 4-38067 JR295 (2,000-4,000)

These pistols were simple, striker fired single shots with smooth bores made from stamped & welded sheet steel with a storage compartment for ammunition in the butt. They were air-dropped behind enemy lines as a complete unit in a carton with a cartoon style instruction sheet, 10-rds of ammunition and a wooden dowel to be used as an ejector. Most were lost or destroyed during the war and few survive today. Accompanied by the orig instruction sheet and an extractor rod. PROVENANCE: Tom Clinton Collection. CONDITION: Very fine.

EXTRAORDINARILY RARE, ONE OF A KIND, MODEL 1898 DUTCH TEST/ACCEPTANCE PRE-PRODUCTION PROTOTYPE BORCHARDT- LUGER SEMI-AUTO PISTOL. SN 35. Cal. 30 Luger. Extraordinarily rare Luger with 6″ tapered bbl, dovetail barleycorn front sight and tall fixed rear sight integral with the toggle. This fantastic pistol is completely unmarked except for serial numbers on the toggle, toggle link, bolt & receiver lug with the script “GL” on the rear of toggle. “GL” being the initials of Georg Luger which only appears on those pistols that he personally assembled or presented. This gun has many unique features that are only seen on true pre-production Borchardt-Lugers. It has the flat bolt with dished toggles and unusual thin beveled edged rails on frame. Machining of frame is unique inside the rear well and at the hump at the bottom of the front grip strap which has not been hollowed out from the inside as on later production models (we had the piece x-rayed to confirm that it was machined this way). Receiver rails do not have the shanfers that were added to production models to prevent interference with the top edges of the magazine. Thumb safety is straight with a very flat, thin knurled thumb pad and an oversized checkered lock bolt pad. Fitted with early narrow grip safety with rounded corners and has unusual orig plain bordered Borchardt-Luger walnut grips like those on other known early prototype Lugers. Trigger is a correct DWM tool room transitional replacement (replaced during testing) of the orig thin trigger which did not go into production. Magazine is also the earliest type with flat, checkered and unmarked wood base. The juncture of the bbl to receiver has had the raised collar of the bbl machined to about half its normal thickness and a narrow spacer installed, apparently to correct a headspace problem during testing. The reference marks on bottom of the bbl & receiver align perfectly with the washer remaining in the white as one might expect from a field alteration such as was likely encountered during the testing of this pistol. Only a couple of true Borchardt-Luger prototypes are known to exist, and this is probably the most significant & important pre-production prototype Luger available for sale today. This pistol represents an evolutionary step toward the development of the venerable & world renowned Luger pistol that was in production from 1900-1945 in Germany and a few other countries around Europe. CONDITION: Very fine to extremely fine. Bbl retains 95-97% strong orig blue with some slight thinning on each side of muzzle collar and fine discoloration and pin prick pitting on left side. Receiver retains about 90% orig blue, strong over top, slightly thinned on sides. Bottom of receiver rails are in their orig white. Toggle, toggle link & bolt retain most of their strong orig factory blue with slight thinning in a couple of spots in the rails of the bolt. Frame retains about 93-95% strong orig blue, dull on raised left panel and front strap. Sideplate retains 92-93% thinning orig blue, strong in sheltered areas. Straw colored parts retain most of their orig golden color, slightly thinned on thumb safety. Magazine is outstanding with a few minor spots of discoloration and a crisp wood base. Mechanics are crisp, bright shiny bore. Left grip has a small chip below safety, otherwise grips are sound showing light diamond point wear with a few minor nicks & scratches and retain most of their strong orig factory varnish. An interesting and important note pertains to the interior from below the grips. When Doug first acquired this gun doe his collection he dismantled it to fully inspect it. In doing so he discovered some rust pitting under the grips, and with the exterior of the gun so good it perplexed him til he was reminded that this is exactly as the gun should be. True test trial Lugers were submerged in water for a period of time as part of the the tests. Later, the gun would be wiped down with oil on the exterior only, thus the interiors were subject to some rust from the water. 4-36470 JR106 (90,000-130,000)

SCARCE CASED BORCHARDT SEMI-AUTO PISTOL BY DWM. SN 1400. Cal. 7.65 Borchardt. The earliest and most successful semi-auto pistol whose toggle action is the ancestor to the ultimately successful Luger pistol. This pistol has all blue finish with 7-1/2″ tapered rnd bbl, barleycorn front sight, integral to a muzzle ring with a V-notch fixed rear sight. Mounted with panel checkered walnut grips. This early pistol utilized the toggle & link system which Georg Luger copied and incorporated into his Luger pistol which led to a serious & lifelong antagonism between Hugo Borchardt and Mr. Luger. It utilizes a spring system mounted in a bulbous rear section of the upper action rather than the spring system as found in the Luger. The toggle link is marked with the German national patent and right side of receiver has usual Borchardt patent markings with the “DWM” and “BERLIN” markings below. The Borchardt was produced in limited numbers, with only about 1,895 pistols made by DWM beginning in 1895. Although it enjoyed limited success it was never adopted by any military and faded completely when the Luger pistol came into being in the late 1890’s. Accompanied by its orig green felt lined black leather covered trunk case compartmented in the bottom for and accompanied by its orig detachable shoulder stock & black leather holster, detachable cheek piece, a total of four matching numbered magazines, a dummy wooden cleaning magazine with concealed cleaning rod and a steel pin punch. Also accompanying is a functioning key. The oil & lube bottles and tins are missing as is the screwdriver which are usually found in complete cased sets. Regardless of the small missing pieces this is a beautiful & nearly complete orig set. CONDITION: Very fine, all visible numbers matching. Pistol retains about 95% strong orig factory blue with majority of loss from a chemical stain on left side of muzzle, having only fine edge wear elsewhere. Straw colors are present but mostly faded. Grips are extremely fine showing only very minimal diamond point wear and retain most of their orig varnish. Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore. Case is sound with scuffs & scratches and a few gouges to the leather covering. Front lock escutcheon is detached but present. Interior is very fine with very light fading and a few minor stains. Stock & holster are exceedingly fine with holster being the best ever examined by this cataloguer. Magazines are all extremely fine as is the dummy cleaning magazine. 4-37295 JR110 (20,000-30,000)

EXTREMELY RARE BERGMANN MODEL 1897 NO. 5 SEMI-AUTO PISTOL WITH SHOULDER STOCK. SN 544. Cal. 7.8 mm Bergmann. Fine early semi-auto with 4″ rnd bbl, dovetail barleycorn front sight mounted on a rectangular pedestal with elevation adjustable V-notch rear sight mounted over rear of receiver. Top of slide has usual Bergmann markings with proof marks on frame and rear of bolt. It has a short spur exposed hammer with a long throw thumb safety on left rear side of frame. It has the unusual feature of a detachable 10-rd box magazine mounted in front of trigger guard. It has a rnd butt style grip with checkered hard rubber grips that have the “B” Bergmann logo at the top. The integral butt cap has a slot for the attachable, steel frame, leather covered holster/stock which accompanies this pistol. This was Bergmann’s attempt to win military contracts with a larger caliber, more powerful cartridge but was unsuccessful. Accompanied by one dummy solid brass cartridge. Due to the odd caliber, very few of these rare pistols ever made their way into the United States and are seldom encountered today. CONDITION: Very fine, all matching including magazine & stock. Stock serial number appears to be restamped. Pistol retains about all of what appears to be an old exceptional restored rust blue finish with bright straw colors and fire blue on various parts. Fitted with genuine Bergmann grips, fit is not excellent but they are numbered to this gun. Mechanics are crisp, bright shiny bore. Stock metal retains bright orig blue and leather a strong oiled finish. Altogether a rare set. 4-37698 JR175 (10,500-13,500)

*EXCEPTIONALLY RARE MANNLICHER MODEL 1903 PISTOL CARBINE. SN 952. Cal. 7.65 mm Bottle-necked Rimless. Cartridge for this rare revolver is dimensionally the same as the 30 Mauser but less powerful. This unusual pistol/carbine has an 11-1/2″ rnd bbl, completely covered with a wood forestock. It has a small dovetailed front sight on a pedestal with a 400 meter rear sight. The action is very similar in operation to the Mauser 1896 with a detachable box magazine in front of trigger guard. Mounted with a very nicely figured, uncheckered, semi-pistol grip buttstock with smooth steel buttplate which is detachable by means of a knurled bolt through the tangs. Forestock & buttstock are mounted with sling swivels containing an orig leather sling. Noted handgun authority, James Rankin, of Coral Gables, Florida, in a personal letter to the purchaser, states that there is only an estimated 150 of these pieces still in existence. Page 202 of the book, Pistols of the World, states that it is doubtful that more than 1,000 1903-type pistols & pistol carbines were ever made. CONDITION: Extremely fine, all matching including magazine, buttstock, buttplate & takedown bolt, no further disassembly was affected to check for other matching numbers. Overall retains 96-98% strong orig factory finish to both metal & wood with only minor sharp edge wear on the receiver and a few minor nicks & scratches in the wood. Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore. Rear sight leaf spring is broken, a simple repair by a competent gunsmith. 4-38070 JR280 (7,000-10,000)

*RARE SHANSEI CHINESE COPY OF BROOMHANDLE MAUSER SEMI-AUTO PISTOL. SN 3223. Cal. 45 ACP. Considered to be the finest Shansei Broomhandle extant, this pistol has 5-1/2″ tapered rnd bbl with integral barleycorn front sight and 1,000 meter rear sight. Externally it appears to be a faithful reproduction of the orig 1896 Mauser, just larger in proportions with a slightly extended magazine to accommodate the larger caliber cartridges. Left & right rear sides of frame have Chinese markings and it is mounted with lightly serrated wood grips, numbered to this pistol, with a lanyard ring in the butt. After the Boxer Rebellion, wherein Rebels had surrounded the Western Legations in Peking with the intent to destroy them and thereby remove their influence, was put down China remained in severe turmoil with the overthrow of the Emperor in 1912. With that act numerous warlords came to power employing numerous foreign mercenaries to both fight & train their armies. One of the firearms brought to China during this period was the Broomhandle Mauser which avoided military equipment sanctions, it being a pistol. The Chinese became enamored of the Broomhandle and as early as 1923 began producing copies of the Broomhandle in various provinces for different warlords and police departments. One of these was in Shansei Province at the Shansei Arsenal. The other Chinese manufacturers had continued chambering their pistols for the 30 Mauser cartridge but the Shansei Arsenal pistols were produced in the newly popular 45 ACP caliber. These pistols, regardless of manufacturer, are usually of poor quality and rarely found with any orig finish. This pistol is well made and well finished. PROVENANCE: Syd Aberman Collection; Randy Bessler. CONDITION: Extremely fine, all matching including grips. Overall retains about 95% strong orig finish with slight holster wear on bbl and a small, shallow dent in the left side of the magazine. Grips are sound showing light wear and retain most of their orig varnish. Mechanics are crisp, bright shiny bore. 4-38025 JR283 (12,500-17,500)

*SCARCE ASTRA MODEL 900 BROOMHANDLE PISTOL WITH CHINESE MARKINGS. SN 27832. Cal. 30 Mauser. Blue finish with 5-1/2″ tapered rnd bbl, integral barleycorn front sight and 50-1000 meter rear sight. It has a removable sideplate on left side which has the Astra nomenclature and the Unceta markings plus three Chinese characters which apparently translate to “Astra-China Company Limited”. This pistol is very well finished with strong rust blue and fire blued extractor rear sight slide and aperture, firing pin & firing pin retainer, along with a safety & trigger. Once the sideplate is removed interior is beautifully finished with machine turning or jeweling on major parts with smaller parts polished bright. Fitted with 12-groove wood grips numbered to this pistol, with a lanyard ring in the butt. While this pistol externally resembles the Mauser Model 1896 and fires the same cartridge, internally is altogether different being much more simple to manufacture & maintain. Production of the Model 900 began in 1928 and continued into 1937 when the exportation of handguns was made impossible. During that time 34,325 pistols were manufactured with about 30,000 exported to China. Every pistol was issued with a matching numbered stock/holster. This pistol was purchased by consignor in 1988 from well-known handgun dealer & authority, William O. Drollinger. PROVENANCE: William O. Drollinger. CONDITION: Extraordinarily fine, all matching including grips. Overall retains 99%+ strong orig factory finish with only one small mar on front strap. Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore, appears to be unfired with grease still on bolt face. 4-38031 JR284 (3,000-5,000)

SCARCE BROOMHANDLE MAUSER MODEL 1896 CONE HAMMER SEMI-AUTO PISTOL. SN 5970. Cal. 7.63 Mauser (30 Mauser). Blue finish with 5-1/2″ tapered rnd bbl with integral barleycorn front sight and 500 meter rear sight. It has standard broomhandle features with 23-groove walnut grips and a lanyard ring in the butt. Hammer is early cone style with stepped concentric rings around a small center hole. Production of these fine pistols began in early 1897 based on the 1896 designs. Design changes in late 1898 changed the hammer shape to the large ring and later, in about 1904, to the small ring design. This design was the first commercially successful semi-auto pistol and was in continuous production until the late 1930’s when war production demands signaled its demise. These pistols had worldwide distribution with several agents having been licensed to sell them in England, United States & elsewhere. One of the most famous of all Broomhandle Mausers was carried by Winston Churchill during his military career during the Borer War. With their attachable shoulder stock/holsters these pistols became formidable mid-range carbines. This particular pistol was purchased by consignor from the well-known handgun authority, William O. Drollinger in 1987. Unfortunately the holster/stock was not included at that time and undoubtedly had already been lost. PROVENANCE: William O. Drollinger. CONDITION: Extraordinarily fine, all matching including grips. Overall retains 98-99% strong orig factory blue with faint sharp edge wear. Extractor, sight slide, firing pin block, firing pin retainer and safety all retain about all of their brilliant fire blue. Grips are sound with no visible imperfections and retain about all of their orig factory varnish. Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore, may be unfired. 4-38024 JR281 (3,000-5,000)

Front edge of harness is mounted with pockets containing an orig steel & wood cleaning rod and the front has a pocket containing an orig spare magazine spring. While Red-9 Broomhandles are not uncommon, they are rarely ever found with matching numbered holster/stocks and usually are heavily used & worn.

CONDITION: Extraordinarily fine, all matching including stock. Overall appears to be unfired retaining virtually all of its crisp orig factory finish to both metal & wood. Blue is strong & bright with brilliant fire blue on extractor, trigger & safety. Fire blue on sight slide is somewhat faded. Grips are crisp and retain about all of their orig oil finish & red paint.

Although these pistols are well made and reliable, they never realized strong popularity in the United States due to the difficulty in obtaining ammunition in shootable quantities.

*EXTREMELY RARE WEBLEY FOSBERY MODEL 1902 SEMI-AUTO REVOLVER. SN 1052. Cal. 38 Auto. Extremely rare revolver with only about 200 ever produced in the early 20th century, very few of which are known today. It has blue finish with 6″ ovoid shaped bbl that has integral rib & front sight and fixed rear sight notch in the bbl latch. Left side of top strap is marked “WEBLEY FOSBERY” and the left side of frame has caliber marking with the Webley winged bullet. Left side of frame also has a thumb safety lever with corresponding recess in left grip. Grips are checkered walnut with a lanyard stud & ring in the butt. Cylinder is an unusual 8-shot design and has the zig zag pattern. When fired the upper slide recoils to the rear causing the grooves in the cylinder to engage a stud in the frame which rotates the cylinder to the next chamber while simultaneously the hammer is cocked for the next shot. This was Webley’s attempt to compete against the emerging American revolver market but few were ever produced. They were very successful and functioned well with a high degree of accuracy but simply did not reach acceptable levels in the market place. Consignor purchased this pistol in 1993 from well-known California handgun dealer, Harrison Carroll. PROVENANCE: Harrison Carroll. CONDITION: Extremely fine. Overall retains 93-95% strong orig factory blue with slight sharp edge wear and some thinning to the front & back straps. Right side of bbl & frame have slight surface etching & discoloration.

There is a stud & lanyard ring in butt strap. Accompanied by an orig British military leather flap holster with brass buckle & studs. Also accompanied by 28-rds of orig WWII era ammunition. And finally accompanied by a hand written letter from consignor’s brother-in-law, dated July 1991, who states he had inherited this revolver from his step-father, George S. Terry. Mr. Terry was a British Army officer who served in WWI and purchased this revolver new in 1914. In the letter Mr. Gay relates that Mr. Terry had stated that the revolver was extremely reliable in spite of all the mud in the trenches and that “he never had a need for a second shot”. Although this was a successful model, fewer than 5,000 were ever manufactured in three different models in the period 1901-1924. CONDITION: Fine to very fine. Overall retains most of its strong orig factory blue with some thinning to brown on the grip frame. Bbl has a few scattered spots of pitting, probably from being stored in the holster. Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore. Holster shows wear with a new belt loop attached but is sound, soft & supple. Ammunition is fine. 4-37767 JR130 (3,500-5,000)

*W. J. JEFFERY FARQUHARSON SINGLE SHOT RIFLE WITH ARNOLD GRIEBEL ENGRAVING. SN 16425. Cal. 577 3″ Nitro. This rifle is built on what Wal Winfer in BRITISH SINGLE SHOT RIFLES, VOL. 3, describes as a Jeffery no. 4 action. He says he has only been able to obtain details on two of these actions. This particular action came from Jeffery Rifle number 16425, and was produced in 1904. Its history over the years is well documented, as it has been photographed and described in many magazine articles. It started life as a 450 3-1/4″ and has since been re-barreled a number of times. Present 25″ round barrel has one standing, 3 folding express sight, dovetailed into an elliptical block, and banded front w/ silver bead. Sling loop is soldered to bottom of bbl. Consignor states that the bbl, sights, and associated work was fitted by noted gunsmith, Alfred Gallifant, and coordinated by Paul Hodgins. It is marked “.577 – 3 Inch NE” on top at rear. Action has been beautifully engraved over its entire surface by famed engraver Arnold Griebel, and pictured in the first GUN DIGEST TREASURY, and originally under gun engraving in the 1956 GUN DIGEST. This rifle is also pictured in Jonathan Kirton’s THE BRITISH FALLING BLOCK BREECH LOADING RIFLE from 1865. Right side of the action features open flowing shaded acanthus scroll w/ relief scene of dogs worrying rabbits. Left side depicts a lion about to pounce on an antelope in jungle environment. Operating lever has gold inlaid vignette of falcon stooping onto hapless duck, flying over a marsh. Remainder of action is in-filled w/ matching acanthus scroll. This action features a safety button mounted on right side of trigger guard, which is unique as far as all writers chronicling single shot rifles are concerned. Beautifully streaked and nicely figured French walnut buttstock measures 14-1/2″ over very fine leather covered pad, and features a very well shaped shadow line cheek piece, and approx 22 LPI borderless checkering. Buttstock also has checkered steel grip cap and sling eye. Full forend is attached to bbl w/ 2 screws, features an ebony tip, and finely executed point pattern checkering and wood to match buttstock. Drop at heel: Approx 2-1/4″, drop at comb: approx 1-3/4″. Weight: 11 lbs 8oz. PROVENANCE: Cover letter from consignor, copies of articles in Gun Digest, and page from Kirton. CONDITION: Excellent.
