Furr Arms .22 short gatling gun
A miniature Furr Arms gatling gun built to one-third scale would provide a stunning centerpiece to any vintage firearms collection (lot #182). Made of brass, steel and wood, this piece is in excellent condition. Mounted on a two-wheeled carriage, this antique piece was constructed by Karl J. Furr and comes with an instruction manual.
Colt 38 Super
A semiautomatic handgun built in 1968, the Colt 38 Super is a spectacular firearm (lot #117). The 5-inch blued steel barrel is accented by brown checkered plastic grips. The most unique thing about this particular firearm is that it comes with its original box for storage.
Harpers Ferry rifle
This extremely well-preserved flintlock rifle is a wonder to behold (lot #186). Retaining more than 95 percent of its original wood finish, the Harper's Ferry 1819 is sure to excite rifle collectors. The 32.625-inch barrel and full stock each have a beautiful dark patina, adding to the firearm's beauty and appeal. The town of Harpers Ferry, located at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers in West Virginia, was the site of an important slave rebellion in 1859. John Brown lead a raid on the town's armory that was responsible for producing rifles such as this.
