The checkered walnut pistolgrip stock rates very good showing some handling marks, there are some spots primarily on the left side that appear to have been lightly cleaned and show some added varnish.

serial #17518, 22 LR, 24 1/4" barrel with an about very good bore which is mostly bright but which shows some minor frosting ahead of the throat. The barreled action retains about 85% later blue. The front dovetail currently has a Marbles slot blank installed, there is no rear sight seat but the barrel is drilled and tapped with four holes and supports an 8" scope rail, the hole spacing would also accommodate steel target blocks. The frame shows 4 drilled and tapped holes in the "tang" area for peepsight mounting, additionally there are five filled drilled and tapped holes atop the frame above the chamber and the left side of the frame shows two additional drilled and tapped holes, just to make the ensemble complete there is an additional drilled and tapped hole in the belly of the frame to the rear of the serial number. The lever has toned primarily to a pewter and gray patina and shows light pitting and impact marks. The gun is stocked high-comb with smooth American black walnut which has a Winchester steel shotgun style buttplate attached. The stock rates very good to excellent showing a minor handling mark or two and much original varnish. The checkered walnut forend is of a much earlier vintage and also rates very good, it is attached with a single screw and there are two holes at the rear of the forend which likely once supported a palm rest base. A very good antique Ballard barreled by a legendary barrel man famous for his 22 barrels. (34054-78) {ANTIQUE} [Jake Simmons Collection] Amoskeag Auction
.40 caliber, 32 1/2" octagon barrel with a bright minty bore. This is a light bench rifle made without forend and is equipped with its original full length scope with no provision for barrel sights. The top flat of barrel is marked "M. JAMES / UTICA N.Y." and the scope is unmarked but is most likely also by James. This rifle is built on James' typical boxlock action but lacks the lobes on either side which are commonly found on his heavy bench guns. The condition of the rifle is wonderful. The "REMINGTON CAST STEEL" marked barrel retains about 90% original brown finish which is blending with a pleasing smooth brown patina. The frame retains 90% plus original color case-hardened finish which has mellowed over time but has a very nice appearance. The walnut buttstock has nice figure and rates excellent plus with nearly all of its original finish remaining. The full length scope matches the barrel beautifully in color and condition. The rifle comes with its original false muzzle, brass starter and brass tipped hickory ramrod. Included with the rifle is a modern mold, patch cutter and swage. The is a very fine, high condition and completely original rifle by one of New York State's very finest gun makers. (14217-22) {ANTIQUE} [Schlegel Collection] Amoskeag Auction
U.S. Model 1795 Flintlock Musket By Harpers Ferry
About .72 cal., 45" barrel with a very good lightly oxidized bore. The metal surfaces are an overall deep plum brown lightly oxidized patina showing overall light pinprick pitting beneath. There are good "U.S." and eaglehead firing proofs on the left barrel radius. The lock shows the appropriate Federal U.S. Eagle beneath the pan and is marked "Harpers/Ferry/1813" at its rear; the lock also showing scattered minor pitting. The stock rates good to perhaps near very good with much original varnish, overall minor dings and handling marks from the years, also showing a number of drying cracks, most prominent along the left stock flat. There are a number of minor gouges, long thin slivers and scrapes predominantly along the forearm on its upper edge left and right, there are remnants of an inspectors marking at the rear of the triggerguard tang, no stock flat markings can be discerned. The lock is crisp and mechanically functional and the gun appears to be in original flint and has a trumpet-shaped domed face ramrod. Really a respectable example overall of a type III Harpers Ferry musket. (36564-44) {ANTIQUE} Amoskeag Auction
