    Wish I had pic with me, but does an MAB with no import markings count? original box and paperwork included. Been shot maybe 50 times.

    I am not sure if its officially "rare" but in my 40 years on Earth I had never seen one in person until the day I bought it so I figured it was kinda rare?

    Smith and Wesson 547

    I also had a Smith 940, which is a 640 in 9mm. Just had a thing for 9mm revos at the time. Got hurt, couldn't shoot 'em anymore, sold 'em. Let someone else enjoy them.

    Type 99 Arisaka with aviation sights so you can shoot down B-29's or Hellcats and maybe P-51D's. :whistling:

    Not particularly rare or unique, but you don't see one every day either:

    Calico Liberty III with a 100-round magazine (which will hopefully be grandfathered in the next Assault Weapon Ban).

    Very rare (maybe still one of a kind):

    Kinda rare:

    1897 M1891 Finn Captured Sestroryetsk
    [​IMG]

    Started out in Russia. Captured by the Germans in WW1 (barrel markings) and was sold to and reworked by the Finns to fight the Russians. Who knows what it's seen: The Winter War? The Continuation War? Who knows?

    We are just a temporary caretakers of this great history.

    What do you think about it? Also is it reliable with 115-124gr 9mm fmj?

    Not mine, but same thing:

    [​IMG]

    Beretta 948, .22LR auto. Made in 1956, and shoots like it was brand new. I'm going to get around to refinishing mine soon, it's pitted and ugly but beautiful to me :cool:

    First handgun I ever bought. I doubt I'll ever sell it. Not super rare, but I've only seen 2-3 more since I've had it.

    I don't know how rare they are, but these are the only ones that might qualify.

    An Iver Johnson eight-shot .22 Cadet 55-S. I believe the date is 1957. Sirhan Sirhan used a 55-SA to assassinate RFK, which was the same gun but with the addition of a loading gate.

    A 1933 Walther PP. Owned by my grandfather, WWII veteran (British), he died when I was in the desert. He carried it in a leather shoulder holster when he lived in San Francisco (I also have the holster). He didn't have a permit, but he was too old and set in his ways to care about silly things like gun laws. It's 100% reliable and very accurate.

    Another one that might qualify... 8mm Egyptian Hakim, 1960. I'm still debating whether I should refinish the stock. I'd like to make it look nicer, the only reason I don't is because of the Arabic markings painted on it. Designed for use with a 10 round magazine; the 25 is a custom job.

    Don't refinish it, please. The markings are part of the rifle's history.

    I was at the Honolulu Police Station registering my firearms one day when an old lady came in with an 1876 Winchester made in 1877 in .45-60. The thing was in mint condition. Im serious when I say this rifle could've fetched over $50,000. Hell, maybe more near $100,000. She said it was her grandfathers.

    She wouldn't let any of us (there were several people registering guns) take it, I doubt she knew how valuable it was, she wanted it destroyed because it wasn't registered (it didn't have to be, antique) and she was afraid she'd get in trouble.

    Give me a break, I hope the police station donated it to a museum or something. Unlikely though, the Hawaiians probably threw it out back and sawd it in half on their way to getting some more Spam.

    As far as I know, these are rare in the U.S. I have never been able to confirm the rumors of how many were actually imported before the Chinese ban went into effect. I bought both that my LGS had. I present for your viewing pleasure, the Norinco Model of the 1911A1 Compact:

    I have an Arisaka type 99. Aside from not having the mum, it is in the best shape of any Arisaka I have ever seen.

    Here is one that fits in that category, Smith & Wesson 1950 military model .44 Special that belonged to a Sheriff in Eastern Arkansas, with his badge and S.D. Myres holster.

    I have a Colt Double Eagle (this isn't my pic). In single action, it has the crispest trigger of any firearm I own.
