This is Ollie, the wonder dog, after a hard day chasing ducks. He kind of looks like Alf from the tv show, don't you think.
Through inheritance, I found myself wondering what do I do with three long guns that were now in my possession... a classic Schneider Enfield and two Ross rifles. I came across Sean’s site and decided to connect. What a good decision!! Not knowing much about these rifles myself, I truly appreciated Sean’s knowledge, patience and clear communication teaching me along the way. His attention to detail and quick follow up helped me to arrive at a decision on the best way forward.
Many thanks, Sean for all your help!
I contacted Sean through the page via email looking to identify what we had gotten in a purchase. We had no idea what we were looking at but knew they were old. I sent an email with some photos and my phone number and was quite surprised with how swiftly he responded and answered. It turned out that the guns were both handmade and of no use or value aside from wall art, but neat to learn nonetheless. Thanks so much for your help! If I ever need assistance again or know anyone who does I'll be referring them to you!
I have known Sean for quite a few years. He is a very good friend and has a great knowledge of all kinds of weapons whether antique or modern. The photos that he takes are of extremely good quality and clarity and leave nothing to the imagination. His photos are as good as looking at the item in person. I have bought and sold many items on his website and have never dealt with a nicer person and not once has he ever asked for any compensation. I would very highly recommend him to all in the arms collecting field.
I was looking for a classic Winchester rifle as a Christmas gift for my hunter/collector son who resides in the U.S. Researching on the internet, I came across Sean McGuire’s website, oldguns.ca. The website is exceptional, as is his collection. I subsequently spoke with Sean and he recommended a Winchester 1895. The transaction was easily c and Sean also recommended a broker who could handle all of the paperwork required to export the rifle to the U.S. Sean is very knowledgeable and provides professional
service. Highly recommended.
Sean McGuire has a knowledge of old weapons l have found to be most impressive. The man knows his stuff. He has access to information l was unable to find on the internet, despite exhaustive searches. He has also been very generous in sharing that knowledge with me. I contacted him a year ago about an item on his site, and we have been in daily regular communication since. I hope to continue to be able to profit from the experience he has for old guns and militarism. Thanks Sean.
I had a simple question regarding an antique firearm in the family and sent Sean an email inquiring the best time to call. To my surprise he phoned me shortly after and was able to answer my question in a way that prompted more questions I had not even thought about. Although unfortunately we determined I would lose this piece of family history at some point, I truly appreciate his expertise and am grateful for his advice.
Sean, my family appreciates the time, estimate and fair pricing you provided us on my fathers’s gun collection. It was a difficult time for both my father and I to part with his early life”s passion. I would recommend you to anyone who is looking to receive an honest appraisal of their assets.
Regards, Andrew L.
After inheriting a small antique gun (C. Sharpes 1859 Pepperbox) from my father’s estate, I reached out to Sean to enquire around it’s value. Sean educated me on the gun’s provenance (all of which was new to me) and ended up selling it to him. Sean was extremely pleasant to deal and incredibly knowledgeable. Happy with the value I received and hope it will find a great new home in someone’s collection!
I had a great conversation with Sean the other day about things in general relating to antique firearms and such, that quite naturally drifted to his collecting addiction and a discussion about his need to run testimonials on his website. I inquired as to where and why he thought he would ever need to defend himself and he expressed a concern for one....and only one....individual who innocently questioned his integrity as a result of a previous deal with another party that went wrong. This didn't sit well for me because the Sean McGuire I know does not need a testimonial to support his standing reputation and anyone one doing business with Sean knows that.....or ought to. His reputation and his integrity is over the top. This website is tailored for and to collectors. Prices are fair. His dedication is beyond reproach. I swear he has enough return collectors to keep him going for two or three lifetimes, but if a testimonial is required, then let this one be the first and last and let it put any doubts to rest, about his commitment to anyone buying /selling or trading. I can say that Sean is an honest "what you see is what you get" person....and what you get is absolutely what you're looking for when it comes to buying and selling in antique firearms. I can't be more clear than this. Sean does not need testimonials and I would say to anyone that may have had bad dealings with other people - Call Sean
Thanks again for another nice old rifle. Sean knows his stuff and always gives an excellent assessment of his stuff, look at the photo's.... WOW! No worries about shipping items. Great guy to deal with.
Thank you for my latest purchase, The condition of my 44-40 bore is even better than you listed in your site. I appreciate your honest appraisal and determination of condition of not only this gun but all that I have purchased over the years!
Keep up the great work and I look forward to checking on your site frequently!
