    Pre-WW1 oddball guns; Black powder rifles, you name it

    Looking for odd pre-WW1 smokeless cartridge guns or black powder muzzle loader or cartridge guns. I like weird guns, so not going to narrow it down excessively past that - odd mechanisms, unique modifications, dead-end or transitional designs, fun shooters, give it a try. Can be anywhere from project to original condition.


    I am especially looking for a Mark 1 enfield (No1 Mk1 by other names) and odd British or commonwealth guns, but I certainly like other stuff as well.


    Also a drill purpose P14 or P17 if there's one around... looking to build into a reproduction sniper so will be getting a new barrel and total overhaul.... if your P14/P17 shoots like a laser and can save me rebarreling that's also an option.

    I've got a nice matching nos 1910 dated mk1. Could be persuaded to part with it for the right offer.

    That's the hope - life's too dull to just shoot plastic guns

    Will do!

    I know there are some guns taking up room in someone's safe out there! You know you don't shoot them enough and want something else

    At the last NZHAA auction a no1 mk1 went for massive $$$
    If it's in really good condition you may get over 3k for it (or more if Peter Jackson wants it)

    You need to join Antique Arms and get to some of their auctions. I have a 577/450 Martini I’d sell for $1300, Wesley Richard

    Already part of antique arms - generally the time and cost of travelling for them makes it not an option, so that leaves one local one per year. Prefer to have an opportunity to look at a firearm or ask questions, so postal/phone bids don't do it for me. Messaged you about the Martini.
