Gunnar's restricted handguns
November 21, 2020
We will no longer be accepting credit cards. We are having good results with EMT, or even mail :)
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..
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 :)
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 have some ex-prohibs to re-register and sell (with longer barrels). S&W's, Lugers, Colts, .. 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...
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 now 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 :)
