Auction buys

Postby adam01364 » Sat Sep 08, 2018 6:12 am

Went to a live auction last night and acquired four firearms: J. Stevens Crackshot takedown, Iver Johnson Champion 12 GA, Excam Titan GT 27 (NIB), and Colt Automatic 32. I'm $765 lighter, which was more than I wanted to spend but I think I did okay. I'll pick them up next week.

Thanks, Papa! I've been hankering one of those Colt's for a while. The CrackShot was lower on my list, while the Iver Johnson and the GT-27 were "what the heck I'll toss out a bid" guns. ;)

I think you did great! Those Colt .32's are going for more than you spent for all those guns.

I've never owned one of those Colts but I know they are world-renowned for being tricky to reassemble.

I applied a little elbow grease and cleaned up the Iver Johnson Champion 12ga shotty I'd won at the auction, not perfect by any means but it came out nice. The bonus was discovering that even after cleaning everything up, it locks up as tight as a drum. If the dang stock didn't have cracks, it'd be quite shootable.

This thing has serial numbers everywhere!

Adam I think Iver Johnson made a lot of that model and a replacement stock should not be hard to find. I have been making grips and repairing and refinishing stocks for over fifty years. For smaller cracks I use a disposable syringe, with an 18 gauge 1 1/2" needle to inject Elmers wood glue. For long cracks and complete breaks I usually use dowels if possible. I always clamp the pieces together after applying the glue and allow over night drying. I am probably telling you something that you already know, I will be happy to help any way I can.

I think you did very well to acquire all those for that price, but then again, I’m always amazed at the deals you are able to find considering where you live. Maybe it’s because you don’t have as much buyer competition making it a buyers market for those that are interested in older, out of favor type guns.
