About Us
London by rail (East Coast Main Line), 1 1/4 hours by car from Leeds and 1 3/4 hours from Birmingham. I attend all the national antique arms fairs, the arms fair at Newark and the local general antique fairs at Lincoln and Newark. I specialise in cased percussion revolvers from the period 1849 to 1865, usually British or American, and often used in The Crimean War, The Indian Mutiny or the American Civil War. I also carry a stock of 18th and 19th Century Flintlock pistols, (mainly) Napoleonic cavalry sabres, English or French 18th century silver hilted smallswords and some English/American or continental long arms. I try to offer only what is either rare or in very good condition - hopefully both. I am also interested in provenance and research as much as I can.
