007. Colt Pocket Model .380 Auto, Mfg. 1921
Here's a .380, S/N 49640, with about 80% of the original Colt blue. Bore looks excellent. Would be mechanically perfect, except that grips fit loosely and right-hand grip has vertical break through screw escutchion (from over-tightening no doubt) and has been repaired with glue. Has original two-tone magazine.
010. Colt Model 1901 U. S. Army Revolver
Cal. .38 Colt. S/N 170162, mfg. 1901. About 90% original Colt blue, with barrel bore and chambers looking brand new. However, grip frame was filed on front and rear surfaces, from bottom to one inch or so up (possibly for a small hand?), which appears to have been done a long time ago. Also missing lanyard ring. In addition to that, wood grips look too beat up (cracked, glued, sanded, no inspector's marks) to be original with this particular revolver. Otherwise, gun doesn't show much use, and is mechanically excellent. "RAC" inspector's marks on L. side frame, cylinder, and bottom of barrel, with "K" stamped on yoke and cylinder latch.

014. Smith & Wesson model 52-1, .38 Special Wadcutter-only
This pistol, S/N 56055, was purchased new by my father in 1965 , for use in NRA "2700" bulls-eye pistol competition. I have personal knowledge of this gun's history, as I was there whenever it was fired (I have one just like it which I was also shooting at those times). The model 52-1 is the easiest-to-shoot-accurately centerfire semi-auto pistol I have ever used. This one was very well cared for, and is in pristine condition. Original blue is at 99.9%. It is mechanically perfect. It should be used ONLY with factory Match 148-gr. lead full-wadcutter ammunition only. The bore still looks as new. Single-action-only, with a 5-inch barrel. This is a precision machine, at the apex of Smith & Wesson quality.

008. Colt Army Special .32-20 WCF, mfg. 1924.
This revolver, S/N 504336, has seen some use, with around 50% original Colt blue remaining. Bore has a few minor pits, but still very shootable. Hard rubber grips are in good shape--no cracks, etc. Cylinder locks up correctly. Chambers are nice. A good revolver in a great caliber.
001. Model 1918 Mauser 13 mm Anti-Tank Rifle, with bipod.
S/N 4011, all-matching numbers (no number on bipod). Looks unfired, with some old, original hardened grease in places. No rust or pitting, or damage to metal, including bipod. Some patina in places you would expect after sitting around for 100 years. Bore excellent. Barrel and trigger guard have approx. 90 % original blue, while receiver and barrel band/bipod mount are original bright. Screw slot on trigger guard screw does show idiot marks, however. Butt-end of stock starting to dry out a little and show glue joint from manufacture. Otherwise, no cracks or damage except for some handling dings. Cartuoches are nice and sharp. On Curio and Relic list as a Title 1 firearm--not a Destructive Device. Includes one round of original, excellent-condition ammo.
005. First-year 1903 production Colt Pocket Model .32 Auto
This gun, S/N 17157, has the separate barrel bushing, and around 70% original Colt blue remaining. Except for the large chip missing from the top rear of the right-hand grip, gun is in very good overall condition. Bore is very good; bright with sharp rifling. Has original two-tone magazine. Normally, I would ask $1,495 for this gun, but because of the missing chip, it is only:
