    Guys….

    How would you like to go to a gun show where there were hundreds of guns, cartridges, accessories – every kind of thing you could think of, and a lot you wouldn’t ranging from flintlocks to machine guns? Some are associated with famous people or events.

    Even more what of most of this was in the very best available condition, stuff you likely wouldn’t see except in a few museums or high-dollar private collections?

    Well if you follow the posted link you can – and best of all you can look for free.

    No, I didn’t notice any EBR’s or polymer pistols, although there might have been some. On the other hand military small arms going back to the American Revolution are well represented. There also enough rare and ordinary “Guns of the Old West” to drive any cowboy or history buff up a wall. These you understand aren’t reproductions or replicas – they are the real things. There is no shortage of C&B or SAA Colt’s, and if a Walker floats your boat they’re at least two to choose from. Of course Winchester, Remington, Sharps, etc. come up on a regular basis. So do a large number of high-grade double barreled shotguns – cased and otherwise. Or maybe you’re a fanboy when it comes to Colt automatic pistols – especially the 1911 platform. It this case you’ll see enough to boggle your mind!

    And you guys (and gals) that like a sharp edge haven’t been left out. You’ll find older classic pocketknives, custom bench made knives, antique knives of many different kinds, and even swords.

    You may also notice some estimated values that make you feel faint. Clearly you have to be in the bucks to play this part of the game. So some might ask, “Why bother looking?”

    The answer is because there are detailed descriptions of each and every piece, with an included professional-grade photograph. Nothing there was taken with a cell-phone camera. So if you’re smart you’ll take this opportunity to get an education, and do so without having to spend a dime. There's something there for almost everyone, and the Old Fuff admits he’s still learning.

    Oh, what you are looking at is the Internet version of a world-class auction that will start on March 12, 2012. Shortly after that this opportunity will be history. So don’t put it off – look now!

    Julia and Rock Island have some of the best guns ever for your purchase, and Ol Fuff is correct, you won't find EBRs or other "stuff" of similar ilk

    This would make a great engagement ring :)

    A lever gun worth $200,000-300,000. Wow.

    What I find interesting about Julia and Rock Island auctions is that if you follow them over time you will see al lot of the same guns being churned through time after time. These are not likely in the hands of "collectors" but rather "investors". They're kind of like stocks and bonds, buy,sell, win, lose,etc.

    Sure wish I had the money to play in that game......;):eek:

    Subguns trump EBR any day of the week.

    But that cased double flintlock rifle (lot 1203) is something. :) And the flintlock duellers (lots 2353-2355) are lovely. I've been hunting for a cased pair of flint duellers for years.

    I was at a gun shop in Missouri a few years ago and the guy had a pistol for $45,000. It was supposedly originally issued to one of Custer's soldiers and was found at an Indian reservation in Canada. I was scared to hold it.

    Thanks Old Fluff for sharing...:)

    Julia Auctions have always been a class act. You are right, when you say one can learn a good deal just reading the descriptions. I for one enjoyed it, thanks.

    HA! Can't wait for one of the "purists" to jump up and condem this auction because of this "bubba" to a rare 1903 springer!

    Oh LAWDY no they didn't modify that rare vintage. Oh wait, it's ok because it was a "Trophy Gun" from Sec. Nav.! :neener:

    Hello friends and neighbors // Well worth a look (for a few hours)

    Fair price on the Colt Camp Perry I've been looking for.
    Doubt at this age I'll ever own a Thompson but I love to drool over them.

    Really reminds me all mine are bottom shelf shooters.

    Finished sec.1 , hope I have time to look over sec 2 before they are both removed.
    Thanks for helping with my education Old Fluff!

    DANG is it really 2:00am!!! time flies

    Truly amazing. That some of of those guns have survived so long in such good condition is gratifying. A great link to the past. Also amazing that there's folks out there with that kind of cash to spend on firearms. Guess I can stop fretting about the $500 spent on the Trapdoor replica.
