Welcome to

Gunnar's restricted handguns


Virus update! For the time being, we're suspending shop visits. Jean and I will be self-quarantined until things are resolved...


April 25, 2020

The move is now completed)- still here in Prince George - call me first if you plan to visit:). We'll be using my cell number from now on - 250-565-7605 - as we're not going to bother with the land line. 

I still have some neat long guns, and have 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, including a great stainless 4 inch Python...



This 9mm STI Trojan is a true safe-queen, tuned here and sold to a good friend who now has health issues and no longer shoots.  Set up to be ultra-competitive in IPSC Classic Division, and it is, as well as being a superlative target pistol! Stainless ambi safety, crisp, smooth trigger, adjustable match sights, and the famous STI internals.  New in 2013 and barely used - $1300 - no tax!  SOLD!

 What a find!  A lovely Colt New Service in 455 Eley and marked with the RNWMP stamp and Rack 895 on he backstrap.  The Royal Northwest Mounted Police was the forerunner of the RCMP and I'm convinced this revolver was far superior to the ones that later replaced it, after a service life from 1904 to 1954. This fine example even has the original holster in great condition.  Over 80% bluing remains - I'd rate this one at NRA Excellent+ - and the the grips are 100% complete and unmarred.  Bore is lovely, no pitting, wear, or rust.  I'll never see a nicer one outside of a museum!  $1995 out the door!

This S&W Model 59 is the forerunner of all the Hicap 9mm's we see today, and today's RCMP pistol is based on  it. Besides being a piece of history, this is a very nice pistol to shoot!  Soon being re-registered to Restricted, it comes with two 14/10 magazines.   Once registered as restricted - $800 - no tax..

This a new, unfired Swiss-made (From twenty years ago) P210-6 9mm pistol. Complete with unused original holster, factory box, test target, magazine loader, manual, embroidered crest, spare unused magazine.  This model came with the adjustable trigger and closer tolerances and it shows on the test target!  $2990 out the door :) GONE!

Another unfired Swiss P210-2 9mm masterpiece.  Hard to believe these were issued to rank-and-file soldiers, and yet were very successful in international target competitions!  I have a factory test target  here from 50 meters that has 9 shots in one hole with the tenth about an inch away...This pistol was built by SIG for private use and comes with its (unused as well) original holster and box.  $2790 out the door :) Gone!

This Swiss-made (Not SIG-Sauer) SIG P210 was made in Switzerland for the Swiss army and barely fired. $1590  out the door:)  Sold, Henry :)

Not unfired, but darn close!  This SIG (Not Sig-Sauer) P210-4 is an original Swiss-made pistol, destined for the German Border Patrol, with original magazine.  These pistols are phenomenally accurate, tested at 50 Meters at the factory.  ONE RAGGED HOLE!  My custom $4000 competition pistols would do that, but a service pistol?  $1590 out the door!   

   Sold, Xue

Another one I've had for a long time, and never got around to firing, although I did fit other grips  :)  A Model 15-3  38 Special with the  8 3/8" barrel, target sights, trigger, and Pachmayr grips. I do have the original target grips as well.  $790 - out the door :)   On hold, Sylvain  :)


  S&W Model 39-2. This wonderful 9mm pistol is registered as prohibited but thanks to a very slightly longer barrel is being re-registered as a restricted.  These shoot very well and feel great in the hand.    $890 all in once the re-registration is finalized :) 


  This is a Finnish (the best, stamped Valmet) Lahti service pistol.  This is one of the finest 9mm service pistols ever made, copied by the Swedes (not as good, though).  This one is Excellent+ condition, appears unused with lovely bluing (no  polishing, as befits a military arm), one magazine.  Looks like a Luger, but is a fair bit heavier and stronger built.  Out the door- $1000 :)  Sold, Thomas :)































 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 :)
