Ernest Hemingway's Westley Richards rifle aims for the top at James D Julia

The antique firearms auction also features a unique gold inlaid Browning made for President Nixon

We are quickly approaching the substantial Firearms Auction taking place March 14th & 15th, 2011 courtesy of James D Julia. The sale will include an outstanding array of quality investment grade firearms, historical items and militaria.

Included is a portion of a private collection of Winchesters and Volcanic Arms from noted author and collector, Dr. Edmund Lewis; outstanding Marlins from the collection of George "Pete" Peters; select Best Quality arms from the Robert Petersen collection and Walker Inman Trust; the Civil War, Confederate & TX Historic collection of the late Fred McDonald of Houston, Texas.

Also select items from various other estates and collections include rare and important Colts such as a Walker A Co 119, the finest fully-marked and stocked SAA "Pinch Frame" known and many high condition examples, cased and engraved examples from a fabulous, lifetime collection.

We recently focussed on what is arguably the prize Colt available, should make an excellent investment.
