  2. FN M1924 Mauser carbine (Mexican contract)

    Here's a scarce one. FN M1924 Mauser carbine, Mexican contract. It has definitely been around the block. Stock has been painted black, and appears that it was done a very long time ago. Upper...

    Chassepot rear sight?

    I have a Chassepot/Gras 1866-74 that I'm slowly getting back together, and one of the items I need is a rear sight. I found this one listed as 'Chassepot rear sight'. Now I'm pretty certain this...

    Yep, I've looked all over that area where you've described, I don't see anything like that. May be a trick of the lighting.

    Chassepot/Gras M1866-74

    Well, had been on the lookout for a project for a while, and I found this. A Chassepot/Gras 1866-74. This particular example was made in 1869, and no doubt saw service during the Franco-Prussian War...

    I'll try to get some clearer pics...I've been wondering if it's the name of the barrel maker(?)

    Copied the 'script' as best I could. Definitely an emblem or symbol above it, but too worn to make out. The more I look at this pistol, the more Turkish miquelet it looks, at least the barrel.

    I've been using the 'squint' technique under light with a loop, lol. There is definitely something there, and some sort of symbol(?) above the 'script'. Unfortunately, it's too worn to make any kind...

    Yep, once some of the grime was wiped away, you can really see it all along the length of it.

    Don't know how well you can see it, but there appears to be a bit of script here. Couldn't get it much clearer. I believe this barrel may have some legitimate age to it.

    Gave it a light going over today, I do believe it is wrapped. Also, no markings on the inside of the lock.

    'Khyber Pass' percussion pistol

    Found this old oddity yesterday at the LGS. Afghanistan 'bring back'. Never one to pass up something strange and unique, it came home with me. I'm certain the stock and barrel are handmade, but the...

    Gew 88/05 with '1907' marking

    This is a Gew 88/05 made by Steyr in 1890 that I'm considering. It has an interesting stamp of '1907' below '1890'. I don't think I've ever seen this, and can find no reference to it. Possibly the...
  19. Rather interesting Nepalese(?) short percussion musket

    Saw this hanging on the wall at my local gun shop, decided I needed another odd one hanging in my room.
    It appears entirely handmade, however the lock MAY be real-ish. It's crude, but looks pretty...

    Unmarked Sauer 38h

    Picked this Sauer 38h pistol up today at the arms and militaria show. Other than the serial number (349855) on the right of the frame, a 'CAL 7.65' on left of the slide, and a '107' underneath the...

    STAR Model 1914

    This rather uncommon little gem popped up at the gun show this weekend, and needless to say followed me home. This is probably the third STAR Model 1914 I've seen in about 10 years. A big part of...
  22. 1941 Beretta Gardone 91/38 cavalry carbine

    I picked this little Beretta up this past weekend. It is really one of the nicer ones I've seen in a while (only problem is that the bolt is stripped, just a body)
    However, it looks like it retains...

    Got the rest of the crud off of the sight. Definitely a dovetail sight post, and these interesting 'points' in the top of it.

    Possibly...however it looks too 'intentional' than that to me. I'm about to clean some more of this crud off of it, see what it yields.

    Some better pics of the front sight with some of the crud removed. Definitely not set up for the night sights.
