Walther impressed Patrick Sweeney with three new handgun models that diversified the brand. The PPX was a hammer-fired double action only (DAO), while the PPQ M2 is a striker with excellent ergonomics. Always a crowd pleaser, the PPK/S in .22LR was reintroduced and is still available. However, Walther’s Creed updated and replaced the PPX. ■…

GUN AUCTIONS After the dust had settled following the Mexican Revolution, someone engraved a Mauser pistol and I am sure, as the story was relayed, that it was presented to one of the victors. A cowboy acquired the Luger later by whatever means, and the gun was in his collection for years. In retirement, the cowboy sold his collection piece by piece to supplement his meager income. He has since passed away and the pistol came into the possession of a blackpowder shop in Las Vegas, Nevada. MAUSER P.08 LUGER, ENGRAVED, .30 MAUSER, 95%: $7,000 I came across the pistol there and it was in the showcase for a month or so. No one could afford the sticker price, so I finally made an offer of $2,000…

OUTSIDE OF FALLUJAH, IRAQ, on September 17, 2004, Sgt. Todd Bowers of the 4th Civil Affairs Group, 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, saw insurgent snipers initiate an ambush on his security patrol. While engaged in the firefight, his sight picture exploded as an enemy bullet impacted Bowers’ Trijicon ACOG.Fragments of both the bullet and optic showered the left side of his face. A U.S. Navy corpsman tended to Sgt. Bowers and called for a medical evacuation, but Bowers refused and kept fighting alongside Marines during the four-hour battle. The ACOG on his M16A2 was given to him by his father, John, a former Marine sergeant, just two days before his deployment. (PHOTO: MICHAEL ANSCHUETZ) Conceived in 1986 as an idea rooted from a halved pair of binoculars by Trijicon’s…

A fine-condition pre-’64 Winchester Model 70 that was custom crafted by Al, Roger and Paula Biesen as the 2013 fundraising rifle for the Jack O’Connor Hunting Heritage & Education Center brought $10,000 at a recent Sportsman’s Legacy sale. This spectacular rifle in .375 H&H Magnum is in unfired condition and wears its original 25-inch tapered heavy sporter factory barrel with hooded ramp front sight and island rear sight base topped with two folding leafs. The much-refined action features a jeweled bolt body, extractor, follower and rail, hollow bolt knob with two checkered teardrops, recontoured and checkered bolt-release button, recontoured tang and custom bottom metal with inside-the-bow release button. Magazine capacity is five plus one, though there is no drop-box configuration. The classic stock is of exhibition-grade English walnut.…

COLT NEW SERVICE, .45 COLT, ALTERED COLT NEW SERVICE Q: I recently acquired a Colt revolver and I’m having difficulty getting a history on this Colt. It appears, from what I can find, that it was manufactured to shoot .455 Eley ammo, which I believe is British. That ammo was difficult and expensive to get, so these guns were changed by gunsmiths to accept .45 Colt. Was this something that was done nationwide on some type of program or did Colt do this reconfiguration? You can see on the barrel where it was originally stamped “455 ELEY”. The second “5” was etched out and “Colt” was stamped over the word “ELEY”. I’d like to figure out what I have, it’s history and approximate worth. Any information…
