Winchester Model 1894 .32-40 rifle
Next on the auction block: an early production Winchester Model 1894 rifle. Chambered for the .32-40 cartridge, it wears a 20-1/2″ octagonal barrel with iron sights. NOTE: Auction ends May 15, 2011. This rifle was most likely shipped with a 26″ barrel that has been shortened in the past. The metal has been reblued and the gun retains about 93-94% finish. The stocks are in very good shape and have not been sanded or refinished. There are no cracks or chips. There are sling swivels added to the underside of the butt and to the forend cap. The rifle appears to function perfectly and the action is as crisp today as it was 114 years ago when it was made. The bore looks very good with strong, sharp rifling and plenty of shine.
Now on auction: a handy DSA Inc “SA-58 Carbine” that’s got both beauty and punch! NOTE: Auction ends May 8, 2011. Chambered for the .308 Winchester, this weapon features a 16-inch barrel with muzzle brake, a DSA Inc reciever cover with Picatinny rail, and a set of beautiful walnut stocks. It has the fixed style cocking handle and last shot hold-open. Condition is excellent with 98% of the original finish remaining. There is no rust, pitting, dings or ugly marks. The walnut stocks are also in fine shape with only a few minor handling marks but no cracks, chips or repairs. The mechanics appear to be in perfect working order and the bore is excellent. Comes with one metric pattern 20-round magazine (the finish on the mag is a bit uneven but mags are easy to come by). A classy looking semi-automatic “Assault Rifle” (please excuse the euphemism).
Now on the auction block: a very nice rifle for the target shooter. This is an Armalite M15A2 National Match rifle. NOTE: Auction ends May 8, 2011. Chambered for the .223 Remington, this rifle wears a 20″ stainless steel bull barrel on an A2 style upper receiver. It is fitted with a match grade trigger for a lighter, crisper pull. The upper receiver is serial numbered to match the lower. Has the O.D. colored stocks. Excellent condition with only very light handling wear. I’d grade this rifle at 96-98% overall. Excellent bore and mechanics. Comes with the original box but there is no magazine or manual. This rifle has been fired but I’m told that fewer than 500 rounds have been sent down range…she’s just nicely broken in!
Now on auction: a WWII era U.S. Model 03-A3 that was manufactured by Smith-Corona. NOTE: Auction ends May 8, 2011. Chambered for the .30-06 Springfield service cartridge, this rifle still retains the original “S C” marked Smith-Corona barrel which is dated 5-43. This rifle has been arsenal overhauled. The pistol gripped “C-Stock” bears a boxed BA/JPL Benicia Arsenal rework stamp on the left side of the butt. Many of the various parts are “R” marked indicating Remington manufacture. Overall condition is very good with about 95% of the arsenal finish remaining on the metal with the exception of the buttplate which shows significant finish wear. There is no rust or pitting. The stock is in very good shape with some dents, dings and scratches but no crack or repairs. The mechanics appear to be in perfect working order and the 4-groove bore is excellent…bright and shape with rather low erosion readings at both throat and muzzle. This Smith-Corona should make for a very good shooter!
Now up for auction: a nice Weatherby Mark V “Accumark” rifle. NOTE: Auction ends May 8, 2011. Chambered for the .257 Weatherby Magnum, this rifle wears a 26-Inch Stainless Steel fluted barrel and is factory fitted with a Bell & Carlson laminated fiberglass stock. Overall condition is excellent. There are a couple of fine surface scratches in the black finish of the floor plate and some minor handling marks but this rifle rates about 96-97% overall. Excellent mechanically and the bore is bright and sharp. Comes with a set of mounts and 1″ scope rings already installed. An excellent rifle in a very fine long range cartridge.
Now on the auction block: a Marlin Model 1895M that’s chambered in the powerful .450 Marlin cartridge. NOTE: Auction ends May 8, 2011. This ballistic upgrade of the .45–70 delivers excellent penetration and energy that is adequate for the largest North American big game. The rifle wears a handy 18-1/2″ barrel which is ported for recoil reduction. Iron sights are provided and this rifle is als topped with a oni-piece base for easy scope mounting if desired. The straight buttstock features a factory recoil pad and the wood is nicely checkered. Condition is excellent with very nearly 100% of the original factory blue finish remaining. The stocks are also excellent with only a couple of the smallest handling marks. Perfect bore and perfect action, this would be a great choice for moderate ranges where a fast handling rifle is important.
