The Dirty Half-Dozen

These are the guns which sold as a lot for a total of $1,100 at a recent auction.

Now granted, they all look rather well-used (rode hard and put away wet, as the saying goes), and I suspect most will require some serious gunsmithing to get up to snuff.   Nevertheless, I for one would welcome any one  of them into Ye Olde Gunne Sayffe (especially the 1897 pump at the top), let alone all six.


Advance notice: tomorrow’s GGP post will contain MOAR shotguns.  You have been warmed.

  1. Those 2 Win model 12s in the 4th and 5th positions. Mine looks like #5 (silver receiver, black pipes) but maybe a little rougher. After all, it was a work gun most of its life after my grandpappy was given it brand new in 1917. My pappy put plenty of Pennsylvania ringnecks on the table with it, and it was the first 12ga I ever shot. Though pristine clean now it is still in its worker condition and is so loose you could probably jam firecrackers and nails down the pipe and it’ll fire em. A century of dependability, what more could you ask for?
