Except as otherwise noted, all guns sold in the For Sale section are built to the same exacting standards as bespoke guns ordered through our catalog of services. Modifications performed on these guns are described in detail in the Catalog section. Sales of these guns are governed by the terms, conditions and limitations spelled out at our on-line CATALOG, TERMS, WELCOME/important information, CONTACT sections and the downloadable order form. Feel free to get in touch with any questions: shop@bowenclassicarms.com

Before committing to the purchase of firearms listed for sale here, please make certain that your state will allow their importation. Some states, particularly California, Massachusetts and, perhaps, New York, may not allow the production of or purchase of custom guns from out of state or guns of certain vintages which may not meet state-imposed ‘safety’ and design mandates. It is imperative that you consult with your local authorities in hostile jurisdictions before order or purchase. In any case, firearms can be shipped only to an FFL holder. Bear in mind that there may be local charges in the form of NICS fees, state and local sales taxes and dealer transfer fees.

Short List of guns we’re looking for hard: Have several writing projects and looking for the following pieces which have so far eluded us and are hard to come by:

* Webley MKIV .22 Target Model revolver; not a conversion but a dedicated rim-fire model.
* Webley or Parker-Hale MKVI .22 conversion unit with .22LR cylinder and liner barrel. Ok to be fitted to an original gun.
* Zidi 5.7X35R cal. (very similar to .22 Hornet) sporting rifle. These hi-quality magazine rifles (similar to Sako, Walther and BRNO in quality) were produced in Germany in the 1930s and have a detachable box magazine.
* Browning ‘Trombone’ model .22 rim-fire pump-action rifle.

We would be most obliged for any assistance or intelligence leading to the acquisition of these guns and will happily add your name to the ‘Acknowledgements’ sections. As always, we are happy to trade work for these but are prepared to pay cash for them. Many thanks. Other guns are are looking for are listed at the usual ‘Wanted’ section but these are mostly guns we can secure on demand.

Memorial Charity Auction

John Gallagher
1957–2020

John Gallagher lost his valiant struggle with cancer this year. The gunmaking community lost a great hand and a real talent. Revolver aficionados will particularly miss his contributions to the trade. Several of John’s friends and admirers in the shooting community banded together to produce this custom S&W in his honor. It is to be auctioned with the proceeds going to John’s family to help see them through this trying time. Mike Daly of Hodgdon Powder Company donated the gun, a post-war, N-frame short-action Heavy-Duty model with a 4-inch barrel in .38 Special caliber.

The following contributed to the production of this handsome revolver:

Thanks to all the folks who made this possible. Bidding starts August 1, 2020 on Gunbroker.
