Located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, I have been involved in the antique firearms community for over 40 years. I am primarily a collector / shooter and have created this website as a central place for like minded people to go and enjoy antique firearms and their history, to date it has been very rewarding. I am always looking to buy antique and collectible firearms and arms, specializing in British double and single shot rifles,shotguns, Winchester, Savage, Marlin, Colt, Sharps and all makes of antiques. I am a licensed professional and keep current with auction and show prices. I am not a business, I do not have a storefront, I am simply a collector, so please do not ask to come look around, if there is something you would like to discuss or simply would like to have more information on, please contact me, I would be happy to discuss antique firearms issues and history with you.
The Oldguns.ca Virtual Museum Collection
I spent a tremendous amount of time building this extensive, archive-like Virtual collection because I am dedicated to preserving antique firearms history, In building a website designed for collectors, viewing and education, as well as a database, I thought it was important to showcase as much quality and rare firearms as possible, all the firearms are of collector grade quality. With a background in photography and now retired, I decided to focus my efforts in providing high quality images of mine and other collectors antique firearms, there is not much point in collecting if you cannot share your passion with others who are interested in the same things you are. I hope you enjoy the virtual museum experience and if you have any questions or have more information on a particular piece I have on my site, or simply just want to discuss antique firearms, please contact www.oldguns.ca.
Appraisal at no charge.
When you deal with “oldguns.ca” be assured that every conversation will be conducted with absolute discretion, as I mentioned earlier, I am not a business and therefore there is no charge for a quick estimate, however I cannot guarantee accuracy without actually seeing the items. As I cannot even begin to evaluate an antique firearm without seeing it, please send pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org, please also keep in mind that there are a lot of scams going on so you must supply your phone number and be able to discuss details on the phone, no phone number means, no appraisal.
Firearms Posted from other Collectors
I encourage collectors with unique antiques to help me with the virtual museum by supplying interesting arms and information, especially on Canadian specific items, I will photograph and post the firearms as well as information, for viewing. Understand that these are their personal firearms and there is no connection to my website other than for information and education purposes, please take the time to review, as they are updated regularly. An email address is provided at the bottom of each collector piece so you can get in touch with the individual collector directly. To be allowed to post firearms on the site, items must be of collector grade interest and must be in my hands to photograph and examine. If you are looking for something that is not listed, I maintain an extensive list of collectors from across the country and can normally find the information you are looking for, again please contact me and I will put you in touch with the right people.
