What in your collection is the rarest, or least known firearm?

I don't have a terribly rare weapon in my little arsenal. A few that stand out, though:

Winchester 97 shotgun, manufactured in 1905.
CZ-52 7.62x25mm
Suppressed 9mm AR

ETA: Title changed to avoid grammatical arguement.

I have a DR200

Thats about as exotic as it gets in my house.

Original AR180 made in the '70s. There were only 20,000 of the originals ever made worldwide.

Antique 9mm rimfire shotgun, with a couple intact paper shells for it.

Also, there's no such thing as "most unique". It's either unique or it isn't. Kinda like saying someone is more pregnant than somebody else; you either are or you aren't.

Charter Arms 38 special revolver.

Not so rare..except that it is the 3" barrel.

I have never seen another 3" barrel charter arms 38.

Nothing I would consider unique, a few things that you cannt get becuase of import laws, such as Russian TIGR and Norinco underfolder, but I wouldn't call them unique theres millions of them out there in the world.

Since I only have but two firearms I would guess that it would be the .38 revolver as the 10/22 is just too common.

Not really unique anymore but my K-31 swiss still amazes me everytime I shoot it.

I disagree. Take Reed Knight for instance. He owns an original Colt 607. This is a rare, and unique firearm. He also owns AR-15 #000001.



This is a MORE unique firearm. There are varying degrees of uniqueness, when two objects are compared side by side.

Unless I'm wrong, of course.

Wife's grandfather's bring-back Luger. He was shot down over France twice, brought this back the second time. It has the flap holster, extra mag, and take down tool.

I also have my stepdad's uncles bring back Nagant. He brought it back from Germany. Yes, a Russian revolver he took off a German on the Western Front that the German took off a Russian on the Eastern front.

Both are awesome.

A thing is either unique or not unique and it is therefore incorrect to say that something is very unique or more unique than something else.

1. Holland & Holland double rifle, made in 1909, in .375 H&H

I love My HKSR9T, it's exact configuration is pretty rare as a factory gun.

Not much else in my collection, which ALMOST included a P38 with clear grips covering a portrait of AH. It was a bringback from my dad's uncle, it got stolen at a train station in Penn.

That thing is so unique I don't have it.

Rarest is probably my HS2000. Same gun as the Springfield XD but brought in by the previous importer. Mine is the 2nd Generation model, which I believe had the smallest production run.

Most oddball would probably be an old single-shot semi-automatic (yes, that's what it is) .22 I have. I don't remember the model name, and it has no serial number, but I've never seen another gun like it. You load a round into the gun, and it automatically ejects the empty case out a hole in the bottom of the stock when fired. Then you load another round.

I also have an 1898 Krag and a K-31.

Besides my ARs, as far as unique, I have a collection of Filipino weapons froma training trip to the PI

Not much unless you thing of my modifications to ARs and my 870 as making them rair/unique...but on this board not likely.

My dad has a stailess Mini 14 GB with the original stailes factory stock. Don't see those much.

1915 Luger P08 in awesome condition, with the holster (brown leather, not black) 2 mags with wooden floorplates (1 has a big gouge though) and cleaning rod. All matching serial numbers.

A french(i think it is french anyway) double barrel 12 gauge with the serial number of 7.
The very low serial number makes it unique to me.

A 1913 Mauser Broomhandle with matching numbers. Very nice condition, bought by a Czarist general for his Mongolian allies.

It is a nice matchup with my 1930 Bolo bought by the Soviets for their Mongolian puppets.

I also have a 1923 Commercial Luger imported to the US after WWI.

Colt 1924 Transition Model
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 12:22:10 PM EDT
Model 54 Winchester in .270. 95%+ condition. Serial number is under 1500 / built in 1925, first year for Model 54. It looks like it was hardly ever shot and spent the rest of its life in a cabinet.

Picked it up at a PAWN Shop for under $400 out the door. It was the first time I felt like the guy had know idea what he had.


Two years ago, my dad gave me his grandfathers Model 1912, 20 guage Win. pump, built in 1917.

My dad received it from his mom a few months before, just before she past. He remembers seeing

it under his grandpa's bed when he was just a little boy. May not be all that unique but has a ton of sentimental value.

My Dad has one of those w/ a 1897 cartuoche. Unfortunately it has been "sporterized" (barrel and handguard shortened, and front sight brazed back on)
My most unique firearm is an old double barrel shotgun that was originaly purchased by my great grandfather in the early 1900s. It is an "eclipse arms" comet model. I've never been able to find any info on it. I *think* it has damascus (sp?) barrels on it, but I'm not sure on that. You can see what appears to be the twisted steel bars when you look down the bores.

A boomerang sent to me from Australia a couple years ago. I have killed (7) Mall Ninjas with it who are attempting to break and enter. Damndest thing is that it doesnt fly back after you hit a perp in the jugular.

I'll see your Chuck Norris action figure and raise you a Mr. T/B. A. Barracus action figure! Everyone knows that Mr. T is the ultimate weapon!



Seriously though ... probably my Randall #14, which has a single-finger black micarta handle, single nickel silver hilt and thumb notches. The standard Randall #14 has a double brass hilt, no thumb notches and finger-groove handle. I can't lay claim to my configuration as being unique, but as far as I know no one else has one like that.

My oldest firearm is not really unique, it's a 1970s era Armalite (the ORIGINAL Armalite) AR-7 .22 LR rifle.
