    I have a odd little belgian 5 shot hammerless folding trigger pocket revolver. It isn't chambered in 32 s&w. That 32 is just a hair too large in diameter I have found some examples online, but none quite like it. I cannot find any examples that have a manual safety on the frame like this...

    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.
  6. 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...

    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...
  8. 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...

    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...

    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...

    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 "G"...
  12. 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...
