Poking around the Collector’s Corner

Part of what I love about the annual NRA meetings is the almost hidden corner of the exhibit floor open to collector groups from across the country. Some of the pieces are so rare its doubtful you would see them repeated in a museum.

How about this pre-NFA Colt Military Model with combination holster stock?

Or this one presented to Adm. Charles O’Neil, head of the Bu Ord?

Just Napoleon III’s matching set of London Colt 1851s

A W.G. Armstrong British Gatling Gun.
