PLEASE NOTE:  We no longer have firearms for sale.  We will be listing M1 Garand wood stocks over time, so please check back often.

1F  -  HERE IS A REALLY NEAT ITEM, A SIGNAL CANNON    Click thumbnail photos for larger views  On Hold  Dale has had this for many, many years.  It was always in his office in Gettysburg, and now in Alaska.  I don't know anything more about it other than he thought a great deal of it, and would have liked to shoot it, but never got to it.  It measures 18 1/4" long, and the opening of the bore is 1" across.  It weighs approximately 21-22 pounds.  Has nice, mellow patina overall, definite age to it.  A good quality piece. Will ship postpaid.  US shipping only.  $495

2F - ORIGINAL RA-P M1 GARAND STOCK AND BOTH HAND GUARDS   Click thumbnail photos for larger views    Original finish.  This cartouche indicates post-WWII rework, which is common.  A super example with virtually no wear, sharp edges, and dark low luster original finish.  No metal parts included except front ferrule.  Further markings include a crisp 100% “P” stamp on pistol grip and a tiny ordnance wheel on the butt of the pistol grip.  The RA-P cartouche is crisp as new and positioned where once the original boxed cartouche was.  The rear hand guard matches and came with the stock.  I supplied the front hand guard which is a close match.  The stock has some minor little dings and rubs scattered.  A very excellent specimen overall.  A valuable example for a Garand in transition.   $295

3F  -  RARE ORIGINAL SA/JLG M-1 GARAND STOCK   Click thumbnail photos for larger views  This is the rarest stock we’ve had, among the hundreds we’ve handled.  This is an entirely original Garand stock without hand guards or stock metal.  Boxed SA/JLG letters are nearly 100% legible in decent light.  Top border line is worn off. The bottom border line has relaxed to the point it is not visible.  Letters are not deep, but are pretty clear.  Circle “P” is 100% visible, with some smooth wear.  The ordnance wheel is light, but almost fully legible in sunlight.  The cartouche stands for Col. James L. Guion, 7-1-50 to 6-13-53, serial 4,20x,xxx to 4,3xx,xxx.  Duff’s book notes this is a most difficult stock to find.  Has not been refinished, and has an excellent, lustrous original finish.  Has good edges, light wear and expected scattered little dings and rubs.  Stock was fitted to a mint barreled action to test lock-up, which was tight.  $475

Edged Weapons

PLEASE NOTE:  The items in this section represent our final sword and knife offerings.  We will NOT be acquiring any more edged weapons.

There are 3 G.I. knives left in this section and have been reduced to our cost levels.  Please check them out and take advantage of these great buys.

2EW  -  FASCINATING FOLK ART HAND MADE SWORD - U.S. MODEL 1840 ARTILLERY SABER  Click on thumbnail photos for larger views  Appears to date C.1840-70.  Has been hanging in my office for at least 35-40 years.  Possibly made as a theater prop or as an elaborate toy by a very indulgent father.  Almost 37" long.  Iron knucklebow with ancient gold painted surface.  Black painted grip is wrapped with flat iron wire with dark brown patina.  Pommel appears to be gold painted wood.  The curved iron blade is 5/32" thick and 31 1/4" long.  It has ancient silver painted surface.  The scabbard is wood with the same silver paint, all showing considerable age.  No rust, just some thin age stain.  Has serviceable suspension rings with old gold paint.  Thin scabbard wood is generally very good with couple cracks.  During our 50 year career dealing in militaria, specializing in Civil War, we did on the rarest occasions, encounter crude hand made Southern knives, and swords with wooden scabbards.  Whatever the origin, the sword has a lot of character and good looks.  It's actually a rather nice piece of American folk art, regardless of what its original purpose was.  It is heavy enough to be a combat sword, and in my opinion, too detailed to be a toy.  Whatever...we've thought it neat enough a homemade sword to be displayed for decades in my office.  $295

3EW  -  WWII TWO-BLADED POCKET KNIFE to be worn on a cord or chain.  Click on thumbnail photos for larger views   SOLD   Closed it is 2 1/2" long, and has a blade which folds out each end.  Grips are simulated mother-of-pearl.  One face has National Emblem affixed.  One end also has loop for attaching to chain.  Excellent condition.  No blade markings.  $35

73EW  -  HEAVY AND IMPRESSIVE WWII SHOP-MADE G.I. FIGHTING KNIFE  More Photos, Click Here  SOLD  Quite a handsome, heavy hilt.  Eight sided aluminum hilt, entirely cross-hatched by machine.  Precise grooving.  Shows considerable remaining black finish to hilt.  Thick brass counterguard and 7” long single edged blade still retaining 60-70% original thin fire blue. Extreme tip has tiny chip out – less than 1/8”.  Fine heavy brown leather scabbard.  Adjustable safety strap.  Leather nearly good as new, with minor age patina and small rubs.  Knife is 12” long overall.  I love these hand made knives with character. Also has the name "A. J. Pisko" etched on the blade.   $150

87EW  -  VERY TYPICAL WWII G.I.-MADE FIGHTING KNIFE  More Photos, Click Here  Another way of saying shop-knife…which were turned out in great variety and profusion by G.I.’s who had access to any kind of machine or repair shop.  Knife is 10¾” long.  Heavy grip is made of typical stacked washers made of a maroon red phenolic, interspersed with brass washer, and steel pommel cap.  Thick brass counterguard.  Nicely shaped, constant thickness steel blade.  Blade bright, clean, showing some light, original marks from its shaping.  Original dark brown sheath showing nice patina of age.  Strong and flexible.  Few rubs.  Face has a punch mark border line around large, less than professional initials scratched in.  Classic G.I.   $135
