“MY FIRST REVOLVER” Keith Wood’s “Spent Cases” column at the back of the August 2019 issue really hit home for me, at least to within a year. I bought my first revolver the previous year as he — January 12, 1992 —, also a 4-inch Smith & Wesson Model 686, for a lucky $295 at a gun show in the Fort Smith Convention Center. I was 17 with my father standing beside me that day and had been longing for this exact handgun. I was still quite a bit short of the $435-and-tax cost for the one at the local gun store, but the gun at the show was of 1985 manufacture and in superb condition with a beautiful set of Goncalo Alves target stocks. It included the Smith & Wesson…

LET’S TAKE A STEP BACK. We don’t need to spend a lot of money to own a firearm, to enjoy sport shooting or to hunt. A number of guns fill my safe, but in this job, unfortunately, I end up becoming more of a collector. Once I take on a new assignment, I tend to forget to enjoy what I last acquired. I’ll purchase something that I think I can’t live without, and then it sits. Where I live, dove season kicks off the fall hunting season, and every year I find myself scrambling to dig out a shotgun that’s up to the immediate task. At other times, I’m looking for a gun to take on an early morning deer hunt or chase after pheasant. Unfortunately, I seem to have no…

“ I have a soft spot for early High Standard auto pistols, as a Model G-B, which I still have and also obtained from my father.” EARLY 1894 WINCHESTER Q: I have a Winchester Model 1894. I believe it was made in 1902. The serial number is 253XXX. It is marked “.30 WCF”, which I understand in more modern rifles to be the same as .30-30 Winchester. I have attached several pictures of this rifle and its 25-inch barrel. The action works flawlessly, and the bore is clear and clean. There is a small crack on the right side of the stock, just under the hammer, and a worn spot just behind the hammer. Otherwise, it is in pretty good condition. What can you tell me about this rifle? Would it be…

“The Alamo” (1960), Nock Volley Gun Seldom has a firearm used in a film caught the public fancy as much as the seven-barreled “Nock Volley Gun” carried by Richard Widmark as “Jim Bowie” for the 1960 movie “The Alamo.” This unusual flintlock arm was originally contrived by British designer James Wilson in 1770 and built by gunmaker Henry Nock for the Royal Navy as a gun to be employed during close-in melees. Recoil was horrendous, and the fear of catching lines and sails on fire due to the tremendous blast from the septet of short barrels caused it to be retired after only about 20 years of limited usage. It has since become a prime collector’s piece. The one we’re looking at here came to the National Firearms Museum in Fairfax,…
