Gunnar's Long Guns 


Update,  May 19, 2018


Armco Machine & Plating has ceased operating as a business (although I will still be here and wheeling and dealing:)  I will be clearing out a bunch of personally owned firearms over the next few months.  Watch for some interesting and neat guns I've been hoarding.  And the prices will be reasonable  :)  Also some reloading material and books!

 Hours of Operation - My revised drop-in/visiting hours are working well! Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00, plus Saturday 9-12 and 1-3 gives us those times to visit, and talk. It has turned out to be a highlight of our week. As before if you're traveling from out of town we can make other arrangements :) 

 Finally good news!  The Crown has announced a Stay of Proceedings!  While they were not willing to listen two years ago, I guess now they were, and have dropped all charges.  Our guns and other property are to be returned (still ongoing), and a lot of guns that were on hold can now be transferred :)

  Here's a shorty 12 gauge single-shot "Backpacker", made in China so you know it's sturdy. Snaps apart to handy backpack size (and back) in seconds.  Almost new, we've had a shortage of bears  :)  $170 out the door  :)

Ever spent some time with a quality rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor? Well this brand-new Browning X-Bolt will make a believer of you! These guns have an incredibly smooth and short (60 degree) bolt action and the recoil is closer to a 243 than a 270, with long-range performance to beat both. Fitted with over $100 worth of bases and rings, It's ready for your scope (or I have a nice 4-16 that would fit).  $950 out the door! 


  Need a brand-new Bear gun for the spring hunt?  This 338 Win. Savage Model 116 with a factory-installed Weaver 3-9 scope is totally new, unfired!  Stainless/synthetic for the western coastal rainforest if you're going after really BIG bears :) New, it was $949 plus tax and shipping - now $890 out the door!  

I've had this Remington Rolling Block No 4 in 25 Rimfire for many years and hate to give it up but...  I have a few rounds of ammo but they're getting scarce - this is a collector's gun, not a shooter (although it shoots well, with strong rifling, and is in lovely condition).  Someone professionally refinished the wood sometime before I got it, otherwise it's totally original. This is the rare take-down model so prized by collectors. Dated to 1898, this is really unique and pretty.   $690 No tax!  If you are older than me (not very likely, and I'll want a peek at your ID) it's yours for $500!....

This Gen II Kriss Vector (this one's in .45ACP) is almost brand new. 50 rounds fired, and equipped with a Trijicon reflex Red Dot sight ($700 US) plus the stock flip-up open sights, this rifle is soo neat - and non-restricted too! Three 10 rd mags, adjustable stock, nice factory hard case...  $1900 out the door  :)  I MAY consider selling this one without the Trijicon (with open sights, though) for $1600... 

Rare and special doesn't even start do describe this 1895 Model 1894 in 30 WCF (30-30).  The serial number places it among the very first Smokeless 94's made, when they finally got the  Nickel Steel and the heat treatment figured out for the barrels.  26" full octagon profile barrel, definitely rifling still there, but sure not shiny, factory tang sight (worth $300 by itself), curved buttplate, wonderful wood.  Restored by my friend Jim Ford and like me, he's realizing he's running out of time to play with them all...It is abolutely gorgeous!  Now $1795 - no tax.  same price as a new Japanese-made carbine, and many times the gun .. 

These are becoming impossible to find - a lovely Savage Model 99-C Series A in 308.  Impressive bore and internals, with a new Boyd's rear stock (Pretty, as is the front), metal showing a little use, but certainly not enough to warrant rebluing. Still some case-hardening visible on lever.... One detachable magazine, Weaver bases as well as the factory adjustable open sights.   $699 trades?...

  This Mark II Savage 22LR rifle is almost new and sports durable adjustable open sights plus scope mounts, accu-trigger - magazine still in custody Now $129 without the mag... - trades?   Sold, Jeremy  :)

This Savage Model 93 is in 22 WMR (Magnum) and wears a nice 3-9 scope made for the Magnum.  One magazine, this rifle is barely used - Now $299- trades?

  This Browning Cynergy Sporting was a top of the line $2500 Sporting Clays gun  until someone got a hull stuck in the bore.  That wasn't too bad until he loaded and fired it again!  The barrels are toast, the receiver, buttstock etc. is still fine.  Offers?  Barrels gone for a display but I have the extractors and springs...

This lovely Savage Model 99 Series A in 308 is in great shape and wears a Redfield wide angle 2-7 scope and a nice recoil pad.  One magazine (still somewhere at the RCMP station - we hope), great bore and internals.  $590 - trades? 

  This Savage Mark 1 single shot 22 rifle is as-new and a perfect choice for that youngster in your family to learn with, safely (and very accurately:)  It is a full sized rifle, however and not a cut-down youth model...   About 100 rounds through it, this one has a 1.5-14  Bushnell scope on Leupold rings as well as custom non-slip stippling on the stock. Scope covers and the famours acc-u-trigger complete the package.  $399 out the door!

    This Mossberg Model 590 Tactical 12 Gauge (2 3/4" and 3") is almost new although stored for a few years. ATI adjustable stock plus the factory speed-feed one - a $150 value - $690 - trades?  On hold, John  :)

  This lovely Remington Model700 Police Tacticalis in the rare stainlessversion, in 308 with 5R rifling, heavy 24" barrel, Bell & Carlson stock with ambi palm swell, extra sling swivels, and a very smooth action.  Talley mounts and rings, trigger is great as it should be, hardly any rounds, with a slight scuff mark on top of the barrel, courtesy of the RCMP - $899- trades?


Very few boxes of trap loads have been through this immaculate Browning Silver Hunter 12 gauge shotgun. In stock form this one is over $1500 by  the time (at least in BC) you get it out to the pickup.  Added is the Fiber Optic Front sight (Green, my favourite) as well as the gorgeous upgraded stock (that lets you reduce the LOP by almost an inch for that youngster or slighter person).  $1190 out the door...Sold - Kris  :)

A lovely Tavor 223 Model 21. This is the famous Israeli Model TAR-21 223 bullpup rifle that uses AR15 mags and sets the bar for all bullpup rifles.  One Pmag, nice soft case with mag pouches, IWI cleaning kit - very few rounds.  Non-restricted of course, $2100 new, this one is 1580.00 - trades welcome...  Sold - Scott :)

    A real tack-driver!  This 24" barreled Remington 700 BDL in 22-250 is like a laser beam out to over 400 meters on coyotes and wolves and has a fantastic, light and crisp trigger..  Pretty darn nice bore, Leupold mounts and 1" rings, a Limb-Saver recoil pad and and the heavy barrel make this rifle almost recoilless!  Really a joy to shoot - and did I mention it's incredibly accurate?  Now $599 - trades? Now sold  :) 

  This trap/skeet combo Remington Model 1100 is absolutely fabulous!  The wood is among the best I've ever seen with gorgeous swirl patterns and the bluing is near perfect.  Both barrels are 26" - the Skeet barrel is Cylinder Bore and the trap is Full Choke.  Hmmm - grouse and rabbit  :)  Over 25 years old but still a gorgeous, competitive shotgun.  12 Gauge, 2 3/4" chamber - $980 - trades?  Sold, Jim  :) 

    This Kriss Vector in 45ACP sports a Bushnell Red Dot sight and a very nice High intensity light/forward handle.  Three Glock 10 rd mags (also have more).  These are so cool!  Fascinating mechanically, and fast/soft shooting.  Non-restricted, too!  $1899 - Will consider a trade-in  :)  Now sold  :)

  The Benelli MR1 in 5.56/.223 is acknowledged as the Premier "assault rifle" that is available in Canada in non-restricted form.   Oops! My friend Rob  just reminded me that the HK SL-8 holds that position, at least among those who favour bratwurst over pizza!   Very nice pivoting bipod, open sights plus Weaver rails,  plus places to mount your night vision gear, etc.   $2500 new, this well-equipped and barely used one is now $1599 - trades considered..   On hold, Kevin  :)

   This lovely Mauser '98 English-built 30-06  Sporter comes with Weaver rings and mounts.  Modern safety, lovely bore, tight action, and a nice piece of wood.  Been sitting a while, so the recoil pad is a little stiff.  What a perfect bear gun!  $389 out the door.  Sold  :)
