Rare, Gorgeous Winchester Model 1897 Trench Shotgun - WW1 Era

This is a beautiful example of a rare Winchester Model 1897 Trench Shotgun from 1918. The gun is all correct and original, and falls in the World War I accepted serial number range of E613000-E705000. The Model 1897 is known for its external hammer, and other features include a single bead sight that is installed on the bayonet lug, with a 6-hole ventilated heat shield, cylinder marked choke, 2 3/4 inch chamber, and standard markings. No U.S. military markings are present, as with the majority of World War I U.S.-issued Model 1897s. Fitted with a ribbed forearm and a smooth pistol grip stock with a checkered Winchester butt-plate. The wood forearm and stock are in great condition, with just a few minor dings on the stock. The original bluing on the shotgun is also in excellent condition, with high edge wear on the receiver and barrel but no pitting and no major areas of finish loss. Would rate the blue at 80-90%. Terrific, shiny bore. Mechanically, the shotgun appears to function perfectly with a smooth action. The listing also includes an original 1917 Winchester bayonet that is U.S. marked with flaming bomb and Eagle/S24 markings, as well. The blade is in generally good condition and has not been sharpened or shortened. C&R eligible. A great opportunity to own a terrific, honest example of one of the most desirable WWI-era military firearms. NOTE ON ADDITIONAL HISTORY OF THIS SHOTGUN: The underside of the receiver is professionally marked 'F.Farrel Sr' - this gun was sold to us by his great-grandson. Franklin Farrel Sr ran the Farrel Corporation, a well-known company in Connecticut that produced cannon barrels and bayonets for the Civil War, and later made gears for US Navy propulsion systems. The seller states this gun was gifted to the Farrel Corporation after the war, and his great grandfather had it marked with his personal factory stamp at that time. The marking was clearly applied by those familiar with steelwork. It's only a couple of centimeters long but is visible near the serial number.

The Winchester Model 1897, also known as the Model 97M97, or Trench Gun, is a pump-action shotgun with an external hammer and tube magazine manufactured by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. The Model 1897 was an evolution of the Winchester Model 1893 designed by John Browning. From 1897 until 1957, over one million of these shotguns were produced. The Model 1897 was offered in numerous barrel lengths and grades, chambered in 12 and 16 gauge, and as a solid frame or takedown. The 16-gauge guns had a standard barrel length of 28 inches, while 12-gauge guns were furnished with 30-inch length barrels. Special length barrels could be ordered in lengths as short as 20 inches, and as long as 36 inches. Since the time the Model 1897 was first manufactured it has been used by American soldiers, police departments, and hunters.

VERY RARE Borchardt C-93 w/ Case, Stock, Mags, Extras German C93 C96


This is a very fine example of a very early two-digit serial number (#59) cased, complete Ludwig Loewe & Co. Model 1893 Borchardt pistol. It includes the original black leather carrying case and a full complement of accessories with two magazines (one is matching).

The chamber area of the barrel extension is marked in three lines "WAFFENFABRIK/LOEWE/BERLIN" and the right side of the receiver is marked "SYSTEM BORCHARDT PATENT". The top of the toggle link is stamped "N.R.P./No. 75837".

The pistol serial number "59" is visible on the stock lug, the bottom of the pistol grip, the left side of the trigger, and the rear underside of the barrel.

The lower edge of the detachable stock and the dummy magazine is marked "GESETZLICH GESCHUTZT", literal translation: "LAW PROTECTED", meaning protected under patent law.

The left side of the barrel has the standard Crown over B, U, and G proofs. The left front edge of the barrel extension, the left side of the breechblock, and the toggle assembly have the standard Crown over the B and U acceptance proofs.

As noted, this is a complete Borchardt cased set with:

  • two nickel-plated wooden base magazines
  • a wooden dummy magazine with brass oiler on the bottom and cleaning jag
  • a detachable wooden stock with a detachable cheekpiece
  • a black leather sling
  • a brass cleaning rod
  • detachable screwdriver blades
  • a wooden handle for the cleaning rod and screwdrivers
  • two steel punches
  • a round, silver-plated, brass oil can
  • a small tin of Vaseline (lubrication) that is marked "Made by the Carl Abermann & Co. Frankfurt"
  • a reproduction manual for this rare pistol is also included

The luggage-type case is covered with black leather and has a brass oval nameplate in the center of the lid and nickel-plated fittings. The case interior is lined with green velvet and divided into eight compartments.

Overall, ths gun is excellent, with 96%+ of the original blue finish. The balance of the blue finish is solid and shows only very minor edge wear, the grips are both in excellent condition with nice distinct checkering on both sides with minimal handling marks overall.

The walnut shoulder stock and cheekpiece are both in excellent condition showing only minor handling marks overall. The magazines and internal metal parts are all in excellent original condition. One magazine is numbered on the gun, while the other is numbered "595". The black leather carrying case is in fine condition overall with complete and intact hinges and locks. All the internal compartment dividers are complete and solid. This is certainly one of the best of the very rare and highly desirable early Borchardt rigs available.


VERY RARE 1955 Colt Marshal 2" Dual-Tone .38 Special LNIB Lettered

From Wikipedia : 

Colt Official Police

Marshal: A rare variant featuring a rounded grip, with barrel lengths of two and four inches. With a very limited production run of 2,500 units produced from 1955-1956, the Marshal became a true collectible.

This is a very rare, lettered Colt Marshal 2” blued dual-tone in like-new in box condition. The Marshal was a 1950s model in .38 Special based on Official Police of which only 2,500 were made in 1954-1956. The Marshal is distinguished by the round butt, unlike the Official Police which had a square butt. No more than about 500 of the 2,500 Marshals came with a 2” barrel, the rest being 4” guns. During the years of Marshal production Colt stopped the dual-tone treatment of revolvers (unpolished cylinder flutes, back, front, and top straps), so of the 500 Marshal snub only some are also dual-tone like this one.

This revolver was stored for about 60 years. If fired previously, it was very few rounds. I can’t see any detractions on this gun other than a very small turn line. This gun also has the “M” below the frame serial number as seen on Marshals. This gun comes with original round butt grips, in the original box numbered to this gun with original label and attached lid as was correct for 1955. The box also contains Colt brochures shown in the pictures. Unfortunately, the lid of the box was compressed and ripped during storage, but there are no missing parts, and box restoration can be easily done by an expert.

The Colt Archives letter confirms this gun’s authenticity beyond a shadow of a doubt and will accompany the gun. Don’t miss your opportunity to buy a rare high condition snub that you may not see again for years. Please look at pictures as they are the best indicator of condition.
