Historic Gun Auction

    

If you are interested in historic guns, you might want to head on over to Fredericksburg, Texas this weekend. There’s a couple of very nice pieces that are up for auction. The gun on the left is a Model 1872 Remington revolver that is highly decorated and inscribed with the name “Doreteo Arango”. The gun on the right is an engraved Hopkins and Allen Ranger pocket pistol bearing the name of “Martha Jane Cannary”. While these names might not ring a bell, their assumed names might: Pancho Villa and Calamity Jane. Also up for auction, along with around a 1,000 other Old West objects, is the Mauser carbine rifle that Villa dropped in the Rio Grande during a “skirmish” with opposition forces.
