St. Louis, Missouri - There were lines and lines of patrons ready to take advantage of the National Firearms Museum's Antique Guns Showcase this afternoon. Some were lucky enough to confirm their grandfather's claim of value while others dreams were dashed with tales of second-hand knockoffs.
We'll have a full rundown of the pieces tomorrow, like the beautifully engraved revolver above, but until then ... here are some of the highlights.
An antique engraved shotgun.
An asian-inspired blunderbuss.
An incredible Muskegee carved flintlock.
An engraved volcanic pistol.
A delicately carved muzzleloader.
