Selling several guns. Each is sold separately. Prices include shipping to your FFL.
An “I’ll Take It” here will hold the gun for you, but I won’t mark it “Sold” until your payment arrives.
Payment must come as a USPS Money Order. FFL paperwork should arrive in the same envelope as your payment.
Some of the guns belong to other people, but I vouch for the quality and condition as shown in the photos. I handle all the shipping and paperwork. I don’t make any profit from this, simply helping gun club members get their hardware into the hands of people who can appreciate it.
Prices are firm. No trades.

1. Smith Wesson Military and Police Hand Ejector 5-Screw, K-38: $500
Perfect function and very accurate. Ready for bullseye competition.
Serial number is 1191XX followed by a star. The serial numbers match on the butt, the barrel, and the ejector face, but only the butt number has the star. As I understand the star indicates a factory repair or refinish. The serial number is also penciled onto one of the grip panels. The production numbers on the crane and the yoke match.
2. Smith and Wesson M36 Flat Latch. $400 Engraved by previous owner. Excellent action work from professional gunsmith at Buffalo Gun Center (BGC) in the 1960s. Still perfect in single or double action.
3. Colt Trooper MKIII in .357 Magnum. $1100
This particular gun has the 8" barrel, target sights, target hammer and target trigger.
Includes the Trooper, walnut grips, rubber grips, blue clamshell box.
Gun is in excellent condition both inside and out.
4. Colt National Match 1911 pistol. $2200
The serial number of 12465-NM makes this the 124th National Match made in 1965. The barrel is stamped "Colt 45 NM".
This particular pistol comes with six (6) magazines. Only one is stamped with "Colt 45 Auto" on the base plate. The others are blank.
Also included are two pieces of literature. The schematic brochure is in rough shape with creases and bent corners.
The Gold Cup brochure is fine.
I am also including the original test target from the factory, serialized to the pistol.
And finally I am including the three-blade Colt screwdriver with chain.
5. Taurus PT-99 AF in 9mm: $425.
Comes with on factory mag and one Mec Gar magazine. Both are 10-rounders as per NYS law.
Clearly the Taurus PT99 is a clone of the Beretta 92 series. It appears that Taurus actually bought the Beretta factory in Brazil lock-stock-and barrel, including the machinery and the manpower:
6. Glock 43 9mm Unfired in Box: $525
Absolutely new item. Austrian made with true Tennifer finish. Includes two mags, loader, cleaning kit, and a very nice IWB holster (new).
7. Custom Mauser 7mm: $1250
I believe the build was done by Otto Walther & Son of Buffalo, NY. This is also the name on the buttpad.
The rifle started with a JP Sauer & Sohn Mauser 98 action. A Gartman Arms custom barrel was added then a Jaeger trigger polished and honed to a perfect 3.5lb.
The rifle was topped off with a Redfield scope mount and a 3-9 Redfield rifle scope.
The Sauer Mauser 98 action is legendary. This one is no exception to that fine reputation. Its serial number of #803 is matched between the action and the magazine plate.
The Gartman Custom barrel in 7mm was fitted so perfectly to the action and the stock that you would have though it grew there on its own.
The perfectly tuned Paul Jaeger (Jenkintown, PA) trigger has no creep and no over travel. It is a miracle of simplicity and its trigger guard is drilled for a sling swivel.
The front sight is a Lyman with a white dot, and it is perfectly mated with the barrel and stock.
The scope mount base is a Redfield with an integrated, flip up peep sight at its rear. The scope is a 3-9 Redfield with rings that easily lock into place by hand allowing you to switch from scope to open sights in the field with no tools needed.
The ventilated butt pad stamped with Otto Walther and Son of Buffalo, NY completes this perfect package in near new condition. A wonderful build from the era of reputations built on performance not PR.
A single bolt bite on the back of the stock behind the action is the only flaw in an other wise perfect rifle.
Obit for the Walther's of Buffalo:
WALTHER - Ewald O., master gunsmith 11/1/2005
Mr. Walther, of Lockport, died of respiratory failure Sunday in Lockport Memorial Hospital. He was 92.
Born in Heinrich-Suhl in eastern Germany, he was a descendant of Carl Walther, who founded Walther Works in 1886. In 1908, the company produced Germany's first usable self-loading pistol, which was carried by virtually every German officer during World War I. Years later, its PPK model became the favorite sidearm of movie spy James Bond.
Mr. Walther moved to Buffalo with his family in 192, and graduated from Masten Park High School before entering the University of Buffalo as a premed student. An expert marksman, he was a member of the 1936 U.S. Olympic shooting team.
During World War II, he was a manager Curtiss-Wright Corp., overseeing production of the legendary Curtiss P-40 "Flying Tiger" fighter.
For many years, he and his father, Otto, a nephew of Carl Walther, operated Otto Walther & Son gunsmiths at 570 Genesee St. After his father died in 1963, Mr. Walther moved the business to Wheatfield. He sold it and retired in 1978.
Mr. Walther was a member of Cleveland Hill Evangelical Lutheran Church, the Buffalo Trap & Field Club, the Buffalo Shooting Club and the Tonawanda Sportsmen's Club.
Surviving are his wife of 67 years, the former Elsa B. Koehler; two daughters, Elaine Gilroy of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Susan Young of Hiawassee, Ga.; seven grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.
8. Anschutz 1422 with Walther aperture sight: $1300.
Very fine Anschutz Model 1422 target rifle.
Date code puts production at 1986, just before the wall came down. As such, this is one of last stamped with "West Germany".
The only flaw is a repaired heel on the stock.
Rifle comes with one factory magazine, sling studs, and a very nice steel Walther aperture sight set.
Trigger is outstanding and currently set at 1.25 pounds.
