Antique firearms and sporting guns are an area we have developed extensively, with record prices consistently being achieved through our sales.

Flintlock and percussion pistols are particularly in great demand from dealers and private individuals looking to collect or invest – such as the rare 6.5mm No.3 1896 model Bergmann pistol which we sold for £6,000.

Other brands popular among collectors which feature in our sales include Beretta, Mauser, Enfield, Remington, Winchester, Purdey, Quackenbush, BSA and Browning.

Our sale calendar features a wide range of antique taxidermy both cased and mounted including fish, game birds, rabbits, ducks, wild birds and other related works such as antlers.
