Firearm Factory of the Month: Taughonic Falls Gun Mill

This one goes way back, back to the War of 1812.  In the State of New York, just north of Ithaca there is a creek (river?) that runs down through a gorge on its way to Cayuga Lake. Anyone that knows old gun factory history will now that before electricity factories needed waterpower to run their equipment and creeks and rivers with natural falls are a perfect place to get that waterpower. In 1814 a gun factory was built along Taughannock Creek, upstream from the 3 falls. It was in a bend in the creek where the water cascades over the shale. Taughannock Creek has three falls (n ..read more

Featured Gun: Colt New Service

 While reading some of my old posts I realized that even though I restored a Colt New Service revolver, I never did a Featured Gun article on it. The Colt New Service is a large frame, six round double action revolver. In the early days of revolvers, the name Colt was synonymous with the term revolver. I think it is important to remind everyone that Samuel Colt did not invent the revolver, they existed before he started building guns, what Colt invented was the mechanism that automated the revolver. Colt's first revolver was patented in 1836, a little more than 20 years later he ..read more

Some of the most Valuable Guns in the World

This is not meant to be a list of the most expensive guns in history, just a collection of stories and pictures of guns that either sold for a considerable amount of money or would sell for a paltry sum if they came onto the market. In no particular order: This is the actual gun used by Harrison Ford in the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark, it is a Smith & Wesson Hand Ejector MkII in .455 Webley (odd choice) that was modified for blanks. Side note: Fans of the film may remember that Belloq took his gun and the golden idol from him in the Peruvian jungle, when he packs his bags for Egypt he ..read more

Bonnie & Clyde's final stop

A few years ago I wrote the post about how the gangster era came to an end. It was mostly about how each gangster met his end, which I found fascinating, see that post here. One of those gangsters, was actually a couple, perhaps the most famous gangster couple to have ever lived: Bonnie & Clyde. Those of you that know the story will remember that Bonnie & Clyde were ambushed by a posse in the backwoods of Louisiana in the V-8 Ford they had stolen weeks earlier. The other day we were on a trek and were going through the town of Primm Nevada and decided to stop to see one of the attracti ..read more

Restoring a S&W Presentation Case

 I purchased this S&W model 29 last year and it came with the presentation case, but the case was not in the best condition. Here is what it looked like when I bought it. After cleaning up the loose flocking and inventorying the tools & paperwork which were all present and accounted for I was pleasantly surprised that the plastic insert was in excellent condition. Other than a few small nicks and dents, the outside of the box is in great shape (considering it is 40 years old). I went online and found a flocking kit in royal blue, the factory color was a bit darker ..read more

Firearm Factory of the Month: Manhattan Fire Arms

by
1M ago
  Despite what it may appear, Manhattan Arms Company didn't produce any guns in New York. Manhattan Arms Company was started in 1855 because of one reason: Colt's patent on the revolver was set to expire in 1857. The company set up shop in Norwich Connecticut led by Mr. Thomas Bacon.  Bacon had already been in the gun business for years having started a previous operation in Norwich, Bacon sold his interests in that operation to work for Manhattan Arms. Bacon brought with him a single shot design and soon he and fellow gunsmith Joseph Gruber began work on a percussion ..read more
