Location: Sonoma County - I am willing to travel within the Bay Area

For sale are four antique rifles. The Winchesters are shooters,
the others could be the basis of a restoration project, particularly
the Sharps action.

The first is a Sharps Borchardt "Old Reliable". $300 Sharps is sold pending Funds

My great uncle peened the bolts in place for some god-forsaken reason.
Stock is cracked slightly, bore is gunky but the action is strong.

Next is a Martini Henry Mk. IV made at Enfield. SOLD! This is not a recent Nepalese "find". Has been in my family since the 60's This is a smoothbore, not sure why, either the barrel is extremely shot out or some kind of conversion. Buttstock is loose.

Then we have a Vittorio Vittelli 6.5 carcano conversion. Possibly the ugliest rifle I have ever seen. Drenched in cosmoline. Not a shooter. SPF

Trades would be considered. 12 gauges pumps or autos that can chamber 3" shells and screw in chokes in waterfowling configuration are high on my list.

Thanks for looking. PM me with any questions.

From what I have read, the smoothbore Martini Henry's were issued to Indian police units and possibly some native troops.
