Very neat Spencer Sporting rifle with double keyed forearm. Gun is a.50 caliber, but we are not sure which exact cartridge it is. Metal has a smooth brown patina. Wood is very good.

  • Spencer Sporting .56-46 caliber rifle.
Serial #353, .56-46 Spencer, 28” round barrel. About very good bore showing frosting, oxidation and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this rifle have worn to gun-metal overall with areas of darker gray oxidation, freckling, pinprick pitting, dings and small tool marks scattered throughout. The marking on the top of the action has softened some but remains quite clear. The straight grip walnut stock and forend remain in good overall condition displaying nice figure and well defined edges on its fluted comb. There are areas of worn finish and small dings, chips, abrasions and handling marks throughout, along with a 1” chip at the rear right side corner of the forend, a 4½” older repaired crack running from the top of the wrist to the right side lockplate and four additional small hairline cracks below the lockplate.

The buttstock is fitted rather shy of the frame and exhibits a very little bit of play. The half cock notch is no longer functional and there is a small crack on the left side of the chamber. The hammer is still quite crisp at full cock and the mechanism appears to be fully functional. The folding ladder rear sight and front blade sight are present. The rear of the frame is drilled for the tang sight that unfortunately, is missing. The magazine tube is present. The barrel and frame are numbered alike, along with all of the other major components matching by assembly number “335”. This Spencer sporting rifle is a good example of a well-used but honest piece.

  • Buffalo Sharps 1874 Montana Shipped Rifle.
Made in 1879. This gun was originally shipped to Schuyler, Hartly & Graham. Then it was sent to Peter Bergernon in Cheyenne, Montana. The top of the barrel is marked “P. Bergerson”. There are no sharps marking and the gun is in .40-100 Sharps, making this a Bergersen made barrel. Metal is sharp but mostly gray patina. Gun has been mounted with scope that is 31¾” long. Stock is very good as altered. The buttstock has been shaved down into a cheek piece cut out. A patchbox has been added on the right hand side of the stock.

Mr. Bergersen was a gunsmith and at one time city marshal among other things in Cheyenne, Montana. He immigrated from Norway in 1876 and lived in Cheyenne till his death in 1930. He apparently rode his bicycle into a parked truck and fell over dead or died of a concussion a week later at age 79. This is a really neat Sharps being shipped to Montana and having all of the neat modifications and frontier gunsmithing. Gun comes with a factory letter as well as a bunch of other historic research material.

  • Very Unusual French Pieri Thumb Trigger Carbine.
Very interesting gun. We were only able to find a reference for it online from the Springfield Armory Museum. This gun is marked “Compagnie des armes Peiri/ Pieri Gondrant & Cie Paris”. The top is marked No.5 which we believe is the serial number. Wood is very good. There is an expert repair at the wrist. Metal is in the white. This is a very unusual gun that on first appearance resembles a Remington Keene. It does not have a trigger guard nor traditional trigger. This gun operates as a thumb trigger. This is very well made. In the text that we found online it says there are some of these known to be made at the Gilsent I factory in Brescia. This gun however is Paris marked.
