    What's the rarest gun you own?

    I want pics, lots of pics.

    I own nothing outstanding.

    This Belgian made 1/2 action (almost) Martini Henry is probably my rarest. The exposed hammer in the middle of the action is something I have not seen in any other example.


  3. Early CZ75 "Short Rail", pretty rare in the US. [​IMG][/IMG] Shiloh Sharps. Anyone can order one, but they are not too commonly encountered. 48-60 month wait. [​IMG][/IMG]

    My rarest firearm is the HK 4, the first pistol made by H&K. My specimen has four interchanegable barrels and four interchangeable magazines, enabling it to fire cartridges in .22 rimfire, .25 ACP, .32 auto, and .380.

    Many of these pistols were made for only two calibers, such as .380 and .22 rimfire. Many others were made for European police, usually in .32 only.

    I'll post photos in a few days.

    No, it isn't for sale. :)

    I have a S&W 625 Performance Center V-Comp. I've heard the one I have is pretty rare and desirable, but I'll never let go of a .45 ACP wheelgun. Guess I got lucky when I got it off of GB.

    EDIT: Added photos.

    Had a S&W 547, but sold it. Does that count?

    SharpsDressedMan - That short rail CZ-75 brings a tear to my eye, it is gorgeous. No wonder you replied to my WTB thread. :eek:

    If you ever decide to sell it... ;)

    I have a consecutive set of 125th Colt SAA 45s. Hammer tie wrapped and never pulled back. Suposedly only 800 or so sets still in tact.
    A value losing thing too. Same dollar value as 30 years ago. Those dollars won't buy much anymore. I would sell em too.

    Probably my Browning GP competition with original box, mags, and cleaning rod... not OOBER rare but definitely difficult to come by...

    I just got some old junk pocket metal trash
    I have a JP Sauer 1913, cool gun, would like to get a 1930, and the police (bordenholder(sp) model) Hell and a 1938 for S&G, but I think it might take me a while, they just don't make them like the used to...

    Rarest would probably be the 2.5" Colt Diamondback in 22LR. I don't have any pre-1930 guns. I used to, but they were gunshow spontaneous buys which I later sold as they didn't fit my MO. I would like to own a 1st generation Colt SA in 22 however. That would certainly be the rarest if it ever happened.

    Bloody gorgeous Sharps ya got there. I've always wanted a reproduction of the rifle that gave us the word Sharpshooter.

    Springfield Armory Omega three barrel set (10mm, 45ACP, 38 Super). One of only 15 multi-caliber sets produced.

    A Marlin 336 LTD. They only made 500 back in 2005. Looks exactly like a Stainless Guide gun, only chambered in 35 Rem. instead of 45-70. Probably not anything terribly special now, but I hope one of my grandkids appreciate it 50 years from now.

    Rarest I have? This old Marlin .22. Looks like a regular Mountie...


    Except that it has a tapered octagon barrel like the current Cowboy centerfires...

    They made about 2200 of them, give or take, in a 1-year run in the early 1970s. Not as rare as some of the guns above, but it's the only one I've ever seen. I have seen a virtually-identical Model 1897 that was form the early 20th Century. I believe this gun was intended as a reissue of that early version (the 1897 became the 39 at some point, with minor changes, I believe to accommodate high-velocity ammo).

    1906 mfg Winchester 1894 in 32 Win Spl with a "take up trigger". Haven't ever seen another one.

    What's a take-up trigger?

    I have a very low serial number Underwood carbine. The gun is not rare at all, but according to references I have seen, it would have been about the four hundredth off their line.
