Antique Handguns

Just back from Cerakoting!  Belgian-made copy of a S&W .44-40 Double Action revolver. This revolver is a six shot, double action model with a 6-inch barrel and is chambered in 44-40 Winchester — as is marked (“44 WCF”) on the frame. There is no maker marking, but it appears to be a Clement. The action works fine in double action and single action with good timing and a slight “wiggle” at full cock. The extractor works fine. The bore is excellent with sharp rifling and just scattered light freckling– I’d rate that at 8/10. The metal had a black/brown patina finish with some minor pitting when I found it. It is missing its cylinder rod retention pin, but that does not affect function. I’ve just had it professionally repaired, polished and Cerakoted in the handsome “Crushed Silver” Cerakote color. You’re getting a very practical carry revolver with a weather-durable finish, chambered in a potent caliber, at an affordable price. (UBKZ-585) $1,275

Belgian-made Montenegrin revolver. This massive revolver is a five shot, double action model and is chambered in 44-40 Winchester. The frame is marked “44”. The action works fine in double and single action with good timing and tight lock up. The frame is marked “BELGIUM”. The bore is good, with distinct rifling with some pits, but it is need of a good cleaning. So to be safe I’d rate it at 5/10. The metal is mostly patina with some shallow pitting. The bluing on the cylinder is remarkably good,, for its age. It has bone grips. The extractor ring lifts and drops, but is not the type that pops down automatically. While not a very practical shooter, it is a working .44-40  and definitely has a great Steampunk vibe. (IEL-588) $925

Ultra-rare Colt New Service .44-40 revolver, with 6-shot swing-out cylinder. First year of production (1898)! Only the first 250 were made in 1898–of more than 900,000 produced—and hence are legally antique. This revolver’s blue finish appears original, but is now mostly patina. Bluing is present only on trigger and ejector rod. Right grip has a large chip at the heel. Both of the black gutta percha grips have evenly mellowed to a chocolate color. Bore has very good rifling, with some very noticeable pits at mid-bore that probably won’t affect accuracy. I’d rate the bore at 5/10. This revolver came from a ranch in eastern Washington. A pair of pre-medallion Pachmayr grips are also included. (EPLR-081) Firm price: $3,500

Scarce Colt Model 1878 .44-40 Double Action. From the first year of production–serial number under 250! Shipped with a 7-1/2″ round barrel, nickel and blue finish and hard rubber grips. Loads from a side-loading gate, like a Colt SAA. The included Colt factory letter confirms that it was shipped on February 6, 1883, as part of a 25-gun shipment to Hartley & Graham in New York City, chambered in .44-40 with 7-1/2″ barrel. Overall very good condition. Has an older re-nickel frame finish with some flaking, particularly on the cylinder (see photos), and black gutta percha grips. This is a re-done “two tone” Colt, with a blued barrel and ejector assembly. Barrel is a possible replacement or perhaps re-blued. Bore is shiny with Very Good+ rifling. I’d rate it at 8/10. This gun would look great if the cylinder were either polished and re-nickeled or de-plated and re-blued. Good shootable bore. (EBUR-583) Price:$1,875
