  1. 1935 Belgian Mauser?

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    What do you guys think about the value of this rifle? It's of course been modified for hunting. I would like to sell it, even though I think the historicity of it is pretty badass.
  2. 19 century British Bulldog help

    Technical Questions & Information
    Hello everyone, I'd greatly appreciate a bit of advice since I've been fighting with this for several days now. I got a very dirty and rusted 1870-1890 Belgian British Bulldog a few weeks ago and I took it apart for cleaning/conservation. I'm a novice to antique firearms, but rather experienced...
  3. Need info on this British Bulldog

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    So I recently purchased a nice old British bulldog and I know nothing about it except that it's not a forehand and Wadsworth. A 38 s&w round fits snug so I'm assuming that's the caliber. It has some odd proof markings (see pics). As far as the serial number goes one side of the grip frame has...
  4. Help identifying year built, Belgian SXS muzzleloading shotgun

    Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    Hello, I have recently inherited a SXS muzzleloading shotgun. I am told it was owned by my great-great grandfather (born 1828, died 1888). From what I could find easily is that the gun was Belgian made (Liege). It is in extremely rough shape so I'm not looking for value, just for a possible date...
  5. Belgian made ELG Pistol (Muzzle Loader & Percussion Cap) mid 1800's?

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    Picked this up in the Netherlands from an antiques dealer. He says it's in working order and that he acquired it in France. I think its a dueling pistol from what I can tell. The hammer tension is very strong with almost a hair trigger. A look down the barrel revealed minor fouling, but nothing...
  6. Belgian SXS Maker/Value

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    I saw this SXS at a local gun shop this morning and fell in love with it. Metal and wood were both in great shape. From the proof marks I can tell it's been made around 1930 and it's nitro proofed (correct me if I'm wrong). I'd like to know the maker and the value. It has JF (Jean Falla...
  7. Belgian flintlock pistol/ more info?

    The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    Dear friends, I'm hoping some of you can tell me more about this pistol (photos on youtube: ). What I've learned about the pistol is the following: --the year 1811 is stamped on the left side of the barrel near the rear --the letter “O” appears on the top of the barrel (and possibly a...
  8. ELG Black powder percussion rifle

    Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    Yesterday I went into an antique shop near my house and bought an ELG black powder percussion rifle for $100. I did some research and found that it was made between 1810 and 1853 making it 163 to 206 years old. I know it's Belgian but I'm not sure of the caliber or what it's really worth. The...
