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 to help me add to my obsession, by locating antique firearms from around the globe, as well 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 and shotguns, Winchester, Savage, Marlin, Colt, Sharps and all makes of antiques. Although my interest is in antique firearms, I will consider all types of firearms and firearms related materials, including double guns, handguns, hunting rifles, ammunition, and edged weapons. I am a licensed professional and keep current with auction and show prices. I am not a business, I do not have a storefront, so please do not ask to come look around, if there is something you need more information about, just contact me, I would be happy to discuss antique firearm issues with you.

Other related services include estimates/appraisals of collectible firearms and/or collectibles, 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.

I will travel to view or buy collections. Please call me at any time to schedule a viewing. All transactions are strictly confidential and no collection is too large or too small.

Firearms for Sale
On occasion, I will have certain items from my own private collection for sale, as well I offer my site to other collectors, understand that these are my personal firearms and the personal firearms of other collectors, please take the time to review, as they change regularly. The pandemic and the cancellation of gun shows has left collectors with very little options to buy new pieces or sell surplus pieces, If you have interest in a specific item please contact me, mostly the pieces advertised for sale are not my own but I will put you in direct contact with the owner and you may work out the details between yourselves, please keep in mind that we are individuals and not a store so please do not ask to pay for an item with a credit card. Different collectors take payment in different ways. There is no charge to list something in my for sale section, no commission, no hassle, items must be of collector grade interest and must be in my hands to photograph and examine, sellers will have to ship their own items, please contact me for details. I provide this service at no charge as a way for collectors to sell some of their pieces that otherwise would have been sent to auction, where the auction house can take up to 50% of the proceeds. All firearms listed for sale are sold as representative pieces and it is not recommended to fire them without being examined by a qualified gunsmith. If you are looking for something that is not listed, again please contact me. As well, I photograph and display certain pieces that are not necessarily for sale, they are there for display/information purposes and will remain part of my collection while being enjoyed by collectors everywhere, there is not much point in collecting if you cannot share your passion. Enjoy the site and if you have any questions or just want to discuss antique firearms, please contact www.oldguns.ca.
