firearms

I cover this area from mid-18th century to late-19th century, from flintlock to early cartridge guns. For me this is where hobby and profession meet, as I'm a black powder enthusiast (ex-fencer)! My particular interest is in American and British revolvers of the percussion era and, to a more general extent, in British and European service handguns from the 19th century. Good reference books include: English pistols and revolvers by J N George; Howard Blackmore's book on English service firearms of the 18th & 19th century. Museums with important collections include: the Royal Armouries, Leeds; the Wallace Collection, Manchester Square, London W1; Musee de l'Armee, Paris; the Metropolitan Museum, New York; Heeresgeschichtliches Museum, Vienna; and various other museums in European capitals.

Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

militaria item Cartridge back action lock, Starr carbine
- American
This is the lock for the comparatively rare cartridge carbine of 1865. Only 5,000 of these were bought by the US Government in 1865. It took a .52 rim fire cartridge and had a 21"-round barrel with a walnut stock. Starr went out of business in 1867.

militaria item Salter balance for Lewis gun trigger/magazine tension
- British
This is a multi-purpose tool (overall length just under 5"): screwdriver, magazine awl and trigger/magazine tension adjustor, which would have accompanied every Lewis gun on issue to the troops. Salter was a spring-balance maker of 19th-century origins, and today make superb electronic scales.

The dirk arrived this morning and I could not be happier with it! Excellent little piece, most unusual... I look forward to doing more business with you, as finance permits; rest assured you will be highly recommended to my collecting colleagues.
