Reality sets in

Reality is a harsh mistress. We've done this bathroom upgrade as inexpensively as reasonably possible, but the numbers at the end of the month just aren't adding up. On top of that, overtime at work has essentially dried up, as we're at full staffing for the first time since I've worked there.

Accordingly, I'll be moving several guns in order to make things come out a bit closer to right. I do not have pictures of all these handy, although most have gone across the pages here occasionally. All prices are including shipping FFL-FFL for pistols, individual-FFL for long guns; face-to-face deals in NY are possible within reason. Reasonable offers will be considered. No trades, sadly. Please send ALL offers by private email - zercool gmail com.

Smith & Wesson 28-2 Highway Patrolman 4" .357Mag. Refinished to bright nickel sometime in its life, has a fantastic trigger. Magna stocks, not numbered (I added them at some point) but I believe period-correct. N-series, four-digit serial. One flake in the nickel on the cylinder approximately 1/4" in diameter, near the front of a flute. Flame cutting is minimal, lockup is solid. $475. ** Sold pending payment **


Interarms Virginia Dragoon 7.5" .44Mag. Single-action revolver, stainless with wood grips. Arguably as sturdy as a Ruger; it's a hell of a shooter and has a wonderful single-action trigger. S-series, three-digit serial. Butt engraved "Sic Semper Tyrannis" (Thus always to tyrants). Includes original box which has some wear but is in good shape. $425.


Thompson-Center Contender pistol, .30-30 Super 14 barrel with 2x Tasco scope. Blue frame and barrel, Pachmyr grips. Sling studs. Hell of a shooter; I never did get to take a deer with it. $425.

Smith & Wesson 5946 9mm autoloader. Double-action only, stainless. Some duty wear, overall excellent shape. Three-dot sights. NYPD still issues these as duty guns. S&W has discontinued production of the third-gen autos in favor of low-cost plastics. With five pre-ban magazines. $475.


Remington 572 Fieldmaster .22LR pump rifle. With Weaver rimfire scope. Standard field wear, no rust. 1950s vintage, it's C&R eligible. I've never had it to the range. Beautiful rifle. $250. ** Sold pending payment **

Remington 710 .270 bolt rifle. With Bushnell 3-9x40 scope, two or three mags. Shoots 1.5MOA with 130gr CoreLokt. Solid deer rifle. Synthetic stock, parkerized barrel, bit of freckling on the bolt handle. $325.

Savage 93 .17HMR bolt rifle w/ Accutrigger. GV model - hardwood stock, heavy blued barrel. With Bushnell Banner 3-9x40 scope, three mags. Unbelievably accurate. $375.
**Additionally, have approximately 1,400 rounds of .17HMR ammo. Mostly Hornady 17gr Vmax, some others. $275 w/ the rifle, $300 without and only if the rifle goes first.**


AR-style rifle. Anvil Arms lower w/ Gadsden Flag engraving on mag well, DPMS parts kit. A2 stock, Falcon ERGO overmold grip. DPMS DCM A2 upper. 20" 1/8 stainless heavy barrel, free-floated, no muzzle device or bayo lug (ban compliant). Match sights, front post replaced with a KNS hooded reticle. DCM-approved fore-end weight included (3lb lead weight that fits in the handguard). $1000.


And one book: "Sixguns" by Elmer Keith. This is perhaps THE definitive book on revolvers and has some wonderful stories in in. Hardbound, with dustcover, as-new condition. $100 shipped. ** Sold pending payment to OldNFO **

One more thing: One pair of Danner Pronghorn 800 hunting boots. Mens 12 wide (EE). Worn twice in the snow, as-new, no box. A size too small for me. $150 shipped in the US.

This is a post of last resort. Pictures can be taken of any of these upon request.

Damn, this sucks.

Zer, I"m on the road for the next week or so, if no one has taken Six Guns, I'll take it.

I’ve had to sell several nice guns over the years because of financial need. It does suck, but that is life. Don’t take it too bad, there is always more. Good luck with your sale!
