    What shortcoming are they talking about the rifles…. They were the best in their time ..

    I found my 43 Spanish rolling block on armslist, I had it shipped to my house. Found ammo from Aardvark in Florida. Just bought a bayonet for a Martini rifle at an estate sale.

  3. pcasey37 on August 21, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    An unmentioned factor driving the cost of the Trapdoor up is finding one that hasn’t been bubba’d at some point in its life is fairly difficult.

  4. David Comer on August 21, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    I know this is old thread, but I have a Beaumont, but not like the one you talked about. Mine is short, almost like a Carbine, with a metal curved butt plate. Date shows 1885. No impression on the side of the stock. Rough Shape though, missing the site.

  5. Patrick Cortez on August 21, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    What ever you do do not take the Dutch Beaumont bolt apart you will not get it put together.that is why my Dutch Beaumont is at the gunsmith to get the bolt back together.

  14. Mason Haggerty on August 21, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I would’ve listed the Spanish mauser on this list. Same with the Argentine 1891and the Belgian 1889.

  15. Michael McAmis on August 21, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    Where are your Winchester highwalls

  16. Tim Pole on August 21, 2022 at 8:29 pm

  18. southernil primative on August 21, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    I got a remington rolling block rifle in 8mm lebel instead of the 7mm mauser I’ve had several of them in seven I love em

  19. Hassan 🥀 on August 21, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    I have a num 1 gun
    I sold this gun
    How much ?

  20. Dragon800 on August 21, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    4:55 most 1889’s take the 7.5×55 cartridge just fine. it’s true they cant take the pressure but they most certainly will chamber them more often than not.

  21. mohamed 99 on August 21, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    What is the name of the gun number three and thank you

  22. Garrett D-T on August 21, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Where’s the Gatling gun?

  23. Jamie Hess on August 21, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Nice guns, but… They’re hard to find, cost $400-700 each, chambered in obsolete and expensive ammo? Makes you wonder why 98% of Americans would rather buy an old pawn shop Marlin or Remington….

  24. Drue Just on August 21, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    I know this is a late comment, but a Finnish mosin nagant is a perfect antique if you can find one with a receiver made in the correct timeline

    I’m disappointed not seeing a Sharpe’s rifle, it was literally the 1st American sniper rifle and is also 1 of the most collectable guns

  27. Dragon800 on August 21, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    I love Swiss rifles the Vetterli 69/71 is my favorite

  28. Stefan Sharak on August 21, 2022 at 8:39 pm

  29. Stephen Kikon on August 21, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    What shortcoming are they talking about the rifles…. They were the best in their time ..

  30. Saturn Media on August 21, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    8:12 I bought one under the impression that it was an old French Lebel rifle. got it for $159 out the door. Went home, looked up the stampings and found identical rifles and it turns out that it is a Dutch Beaumont! I am still confused on what the caliber is, I have seen a few different ones although Eric said that the caliber is 11×52 rimmed. Thing is, I measured the bore and I’m getting 11mm, I have seen people online talking about 11.3 mm and I’m not 100% sure what that is about. If anyone has ANY information on the rifle then please let me know! It is serial number 759 from 1876, and the butt plate says 1891, which I’m assuming is the conversion date since these were once just single shot rifles.

    Want top 10 made in USA rifles? Top 10 MADE IN USA handguns? Top 10 Made in USA Weapons?

  32. Seth N. on August 21, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Beaumont-Vitalis are 4+1 actually…and mine is #307 so very close to yours eric

  33. Wisconsin_Redneck13 on August 21, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    there should be a company that remakes old guns, so say you have an og martini henry that’s to old to shoot, buy a new one and shoot that. and make different versions that were used by different countrys
    BTW anyone in 2019

    @3:40…? Say what? Even Australia?

  37. Hamm 603 on August 21, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    The Peabody design made by Providence Tool co. is the ORIGINAL Martini. Swiss jerk named Martini didn’t mind patent infringement. The rifle won the military trial in late 1860’s but the Trapdoor was adopted even though it came in 3rd.
    Mine is a Massachusetts militia rifle in .43 Spanish with the rack tag. I also have a patent infringement Martini Henery. Peabody in .43 Spanish was much more accurate.

    God Bless everyone!!!! Jesus Loves you all very much!!!!

  39. Dom Geise on August 21, 2022 at 8:55 pm

  40. 11BangBang on August 21, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    Is it just me or did the ATF just redefine what an antique gun is?

    I had always heard and was always of the belief that if a gun was a muzzleloader, cap and ball revolver or if a gun was made before 1898 (and is not a machine gun) it was considered an antique and NFA rules don’t apply.

    For instance if you bought an 1873 trapdoor in 45-70 it usually gets shipped straight to your door.

    However when I looked this up on the ATFs website today this is what I found.

    Firearms Verification

    National Firearms Act Definitions

    Antique Firearm

    26 U.S.C. § 5845(G)
    "For the purposes of the National Firearms Act, the term “Antique Firearms” means any firearm

    (including any matchlock, flintlock, percussion cap or similar type of ignition system or replica thereof, whether actually manufactured before or after the year 1898) and also any firearm using fixed ammunition manufactured in or before 1898, for which ammunition is no longer manufactured in the United States and is not readily available in the ordinary channels of commercial trade."

    So does this mean that since my 159 year old 1862 S&W Model 1 is chambered in 22 short and 22 short is still manufactured in the U.S and is available on the consumer market it’s now considered a modern Firearm and is no longer an antique?
