HA2379 Marble's Model 21 Game Getter, Folding Stock, O/U, .22 S/L/LR over .410 Bore, 2 1/2" or GG 44, 18"Bbls., (Used 98%), $2,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Marble's Model 21 Game Getter was purchased in 1929 by my wife's great uncle, James Eccles for his wife Mary.  It has descended through the family to my wife.  Considering its 88 year life, so far, it is in excellent shape.  It may not have been fired, the bores are mirror. It comes with the original Box, the original Owner's Manual, both numbered to the gun, and a copy of the 1929 registration card from Marble's Archives.  The gun shows some holster wear on the end of the barrels and on sharp edges of the receiver.  This is not a restricted or NFA weapon  "the 18" barrel variation was administratively removed from the NFA in 1939 by the Bureau of Internal Revenue after determining that it was not concealable on the person."  The top barrel is chambered for 22 Short, Long or Long Rifle cartridges, the bottom barrel accepts 410 2 1/2" Shot Shells/Rifled Slugs, or 44 Game Getter Ball cartridges (which you probably won't find at Wall Mart).  It has a blade front sight, and a combination U shaped or Peep, rear sight.  The gun breaks open by pulling back on the trigger guard. A single extractor lifts the shells from both chambers.  The Hammer Face pivots up or down to select the barrel to be fired.  It has no safety, but the hammer must be manually cocked before it will fire.  This is an authentic collectors piece, and would be handy to have as a survival rifle/shotgun if society falls apart as some expect.

HA2359 Perazzi (Ithaca) Mirage Sporting Combo, Long-LOP, O/U 12 Ga. 2 3/4", 30" Ported Bbls., Briley Sub-Gauge 20-28-410 30" Tubes, Extra Trigger, Stock, Springs, (Used-Custom), Cased, $6,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Perazzi Mirage was built in 1973 in Italy and was Imported by Ithaca. First it was used as a trap gun, but not used very much, then I bought it in 1992 and had Klaus Hiptmayer (now retired) carve me a stock from exhibition grade wood.  The stock was made to my dimensions, so the Length of pull is 15 7/8".  I was fascinated with the idea of a custom stock so I had the butt checkered, no pad.  I realized this was a mistake after shooting a round of Skeet with the 12 Gauge.  I think I have shot one or two rounds of Skeet with the 28 Gauge inserts in the last 20 years, so the gun is as modified. Any purchaser under 6'5" will probably want to have the stock shortened and a recoil pad fitted.  The bottoms of both triggers were engraved  by Heidi Hiptmayer (now deceased) with a Fleur-de-Lis with Serpent Entwined, which is the Hero's Arms Logo (at the top of this page), and also the Crest from the Buckner Family Coat of Arms.  In Heraldry the Fleur-de-Lis signifies purity, the Serpent signifies wisdom (after the Garden of Eden).  The 30" (760mm) barrels have sub-gauge tube fitted by Briley and Thin Wall Briley Choke tubes.  For the 12 Gauge there are five chokes, Full, Modified, Improved Cylinder and 2 Skeet.  For the 20-28-410 Tube sets each has Modified, Improved Cylinder and Two Skeet chokes.  The combo comes with a number of extras.  The gun itself comes with a non-selective trigger, the bottom barrel always fires first, so I bought a Selective Trigger assembly for it which is included.  Next, there is a set of replacement springs and firing pins, with wrench just in case they are needed in the middle of a competition. There is a Release Trigger Hook and spring so the standard trigger can be converted to a release trigger.  Finally, there is the original Trap Stock with an Edwards Recoil Reducer inside, and the original forearm.

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Blaser F3 Sporting Combo has been shot but is in excellent condition.  It has a slight amount of bluing wear on the sharp edges. It has been fitted with a Gracoil recoil reduction system, with a Length of Pull of 14 5/8" over a Kick Eez pad.  The various gauges weigh between 8 pound seven and eight pounds twelve ounces, and there are barrel weights to alter this if desired.  It comes with five Briley Spectrum Extended choke tubes in Improved Modified, Modified, Light Modified, Improved Cylinder and Skeet Constrictions for every gauge, a total of 20 choke tubes.  It has four Briley Speed Wrenches. The wood is an upgrade from standard.  It comes packed in a Negrini Deluxe Four Gauge Case, with Negrini barrel; sleeves.  This is the choice for serious competition. Because of weight and insurance value, shipping is $100.

Everything about the K-80 that has made it a legend can also be found in the K-20 Over & Under Shotgun.

Hero's Arms Says:  This Krieghoff K20 Sporter Combo was built in 2008 and seems hardly used. I purchased it from a gentleman whose arthritis kept him from shooting. There is one small ding on the stock on the left side near the bottom and recoil pad which is the only defect I can find.  Both the 20 Ga. and 28 Ga. barrels are 30" long.  It comes with 5 choke tubes in each gauge, in the 20 there is an Improved Modified, Modified, Improved Cylinder, Improved Cylinder and Skeet, in the 28 Ga. there is an Improved Modified, Modified, Improved Cylinder, Skeet and Skeet. The wood has a spectacular marbled look.  It has a slight cast on, 1/8" to the right, and a right hand palm swell.  An outstanding gun for hunting, skeet or sporting clays.

HA2251 Charles Daly (Miroku) Kolar Skeet Combo, O/U, 12-20-28-410 28", Cased, Condition Various, $2,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Charles Daly Superior Grade was originally built by Miroku in Japan, and is essentially a Browning Citori with some differences.  I had Midwest Gun Works replace the springs, check it over and re-blue the receiver, so mechanically it is in excellent condition.  There are numerous small handling marks on the wood, and the bluing on the right side of the lower barrel has some freckling, so no one will think this a new gun.  It has a 14 3/4" LOP over a Morgan Pad, which allows for the Drop At Heel to be adjusted to the shooter's choice. Each Gauge has 2 Skeet tubes, in addition the 12 has IC/Mod/Full, the 20 & 28 have IC/IC, and the 410 has Mod/Full.  It comes with a plastic mallet, a knock-out driver and choke wrenches for every gauge.  The Aluminum Case seems Airline Proof. The 12 Gauge, empty weighs 7 pounds 13 ounces, but with the barrel weight or sub gauge tubes installed it weighs around 8 pounds 9 ounces.  On the sides of the receiver there are what Charles Daly called "Selexors", which supposedly allow the shooter to select between ejection and extraction, but I have been unable to figure out how they work, so it just ejects.  I shot a round of Skeet with the 28 Gauge Tubes installed, and everything worked perfectly - except the shooter who got his usual score.  Anyway, it's a poor workman who blames his tools.  I have other 4 gauge sets available, but this one is a real bargain.

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Kolar Max Skeet was custom built for a big, tall right handed shooter.  It has a 15 7/8" Length of Pull, and weighs 10 pounds 8 ounces with the 12 Gauge barrels and within an ounce of that with the carrier barrels with sub-gauge tubes.   It has the Kolar LS3 competition stock configuration with 1 5/8" drop at Comb and Monte Carlo, 3 1/4" drop at Heel, 1/4" Offset to the right, and 3/4" Toe out.  Both the 12 Gauge barrels and the carrier barrels have ribs adjustable for Point Of Impact from 50%/50% to 70%/30%.  It has a hi-gloss blue receiver, a $795 upgrade from the standard nickel finish.  It comes with Kolar Chokes in Modified, Light Modified, Improved Cylinder and Skeet/Skeet in 12 Gauge.  The Kolar AAA sub gauge tubes have Skeet/Skeet chokes, with an extra Improved Cylinder choke in 20, 28 and 410.  It has nicely figured wood.  It has been serviced by Kolar and is in excellent condition. There are a few small handling marks so I rate it at 99% condition.  This is a gun for the serious skeet competitor.  Free Shipping in the original 48 states.
