Good gun alert, Prussian Daly SxS, 4/17, Sandston, VA, & others…

When it comes to auctions, there are two things I love to see.

Charles Daly 12 gauge side-by-side shotgun

First, an auctioneer who knows very little about an item. Second, an auctioneer who makes life hard for absentee bidders.

Auctioneers likes this are  experts at selling  items under their real value. That means you can get a great deal.

Marr Auction Services in Sandston, VA, is this kind of auctioneer.  They have a Charles Daly side-by-side, 12 gauge shotgun coming up on Saturday, April 17th.

It looks like a nice gun. I would tell you more about it, but the auctioneer couldn’t tell me a thing about it.  He doesn’t even know the length of the barrels. From what I can see, it looks like a mid-grade Daly, probably a Sauer-era gun. It looks like it has a lot of finish, but the wood and barrels may be redone.

Also on on Saturday, 4/17, Park Auctions and Realty Company is having a big gun auction. It’s in Burlington, NC. They have a bunch of decent looking double barrels: Parkers, Foxes, and Ithaca. There’s even a Syracuse Arms side-by-side and an L.C. Smith .410.

  1. Race you to the Daly.
    Looks like Grandpa was in the war.

    Seriously, this is a case of an auction house not working too hard to create demand. I’d like the Moxie stuff too, just because I like it. Been trying all week, no call backs.
    It will probably be on Gunbroker monday am.

    That’s why my estate stuff is all tagged and recorded.

  2. Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying unsucessufly. Appreciate it!
