Our Mission Statement


To ensure satisfaction in your purchase by providing detailed and accurate descriptions and photographs which accurately depict the condition of the item and identify any flaws which would be a consideration in your decision to purchase. Slight differences in condition can result in large variations in values so we attempt to provide as much detail as possible to ensure you are not surprised upon receipt of your item.

We will attempt to always have items available that meet every budget but will not compromise on quality by selling lower grade examples of common antique firearms. We believe that collecting antique firearms should first be a passion and a hobby but recognize that it is also an investment and therefore we will only present pieces which we feel are good investments with potential for future increases in value.
