Welcome to Gunnar's Prohibs
May 18, 2019
To bring you up to date:
New house almost complete now (with the move to start end of May) - still here in Prince George - with more limited shop space. A lot of guns, especially long guns, are now gone, although I still have some to get rid of, and some ex-prohibs to re-register and sell (with longer barrels). S&W's, Lugers.. I am keeping this website going for the foreseeable future, gotta have something to do! Look for deals, still a lot of cool stuff here!
This 4" barreled S&W Model 10 in 38 Special is lovely with most of the gorgeous bluing intact and the action is very slick and smooth. Wears a nice set of Pachmayr grips that feel just right. Doesn't seem to have had a lot of use, these guns were just smooth out of the box. Darn accurate, too! $349, out the door!
This beauty is a 3" Airweight Chief's Special S&W Model 37 in 38 Special, and Jean's very first handgun. She can't legally own it as it's too new, and doesn't fit in under her 12(7) licence. In factory nickel - just gorgeous, I bought it for her new in '78, forty years ago, and it's been mostly stored ever since. It comes with original box and papers. I can't put my hands on the original (round butt) teensy grips right now, but the Pachmayrs feel so much better.... $500 - out the door!
This excellent French-made MAB Model R is the rare military version with a lanyard ring and outside hammer. In .32 (7.65 ACP) like the much more common civilian version, this was considered quite adequate by the (European) armies of the day... In great shape with a small crack in the right grip as shown. $100 out the door.
A wonderful "shooter", this 9mm Luger S/42 is a rework by the Russians as designated by the stamp by the serial number. Not a collector gun but numbers match. Decent trigger, very shootable bore, Mec-Gar magazine - way better than the originals - grips worn, and chipped by the safety.
Awaiting re-registration :)
Armco Machine & Plating has ceased operating as a business (although I will still be here clearing out a bunch of personally owned firearms over the next few months). And sometimes I'll be accepting a nice trade-in on something, so new stuff will show up :) Watch for some interesting and neat guns.
My drop-in/visiting hours are still Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00, plus Saturday 9-12 and 1-3. It has turned out to be a highlight of my week. As before if you're traveling from out of town we can make other arrangements :)
