100 Years of Winchester Cartridge Boxes, 1856-1956
The 1st and ONLY
definitive work on cartridge boxes, covering all the calibers for which
Winchester cataloged their rifles, from the Volcanic to the Model 88.
Thoroughly researched, this 312 page book contains
over 1,400 full color photographs as well as price and rarity
guides in a high quality, hard-cover book with dust-jacket!
Will be happy to sign your copy on request.
|2.7 m/m Kolibri||This little guy is the smallest center-fire cartridge ever made, ca 1913. Primer has been struck, but a nice clean example of a rare cartridge. Shown here between a dime and a .22 Short.||SOLD|
|6 m/m Lee
|Winchester. Five "WRACo 6 m/m U.S.N." headstamped Full Metal Jkt rds in orig clip. "Pat. Oct 8 95" stamped on clip base as it should be. Getting quite rare. Have seen the clips alone, w/o ctdgs, go for over $150 on more than one occasion. (Photo'd in shrink-wrap; pls ignore label removal mark)||
|Winchester. Seldom seen Jacketed Hollow Soft Point loading (most being Full Metal Jacket). Two-piece box, label-dated 6-15. While top edges have been pasted back, the cartridges appear to be all untouched, native to the box. SCARCE!||$85|
|Sako (Finland). Very old (thought to be WWI military, headstamped "Sako 17") original box of 25. Labeled in both English & Finnish. Clean, original ctdgs in 5 rows of 5 ctdgs each, separated by cardboard dividers. Really neat little historical display box.||$37.50|
|8m/m Lebel||Remington. Post-war Kleanbore box, full and orig, clean ctdgs.||$75|
|8 m/m Lebel||Remington. Earliest Kleanbore, 2-pc box w/ 18 rds + baggy w/ 8 add'l later Rem-UMC rds, 26 ctdgs in all. Powder shakes free in all ctdgs and all have nickeled primers.||$45|
42 Russian Berdan
|UMC. This VERY RARE and desirable "Dog Logo" box from the late-1870s once held twenty .42 Russian Berdan paper-patched cartridges. It now holds one such original rd. The cartridge was developed for the Russians by an American general, Hiram Berdan, the same person for whom the Berdan primer is named. The Union Metallic Cartridge Co used Berdan primers extensively in their large rifle calibers throughout the 1870s (and beyond) and while other makers produced the .42 Russian caliber, this is the "real thing", the 42 Russian Berdan by UMC. A rare bit of history in a box! [From my personal collection]||
|45 Gatling Gun Blanks||Frankford Arsenal. "1903" Model in string-SEALED 2-pc box, totally original. Gatling marked boxes always rare and in demand. This is the cheapest I know of!||$175|
"Carbine Ball Cartridges, Reloading"
Military contract boxes by UMC, Winchester and Frankford
Arsenal. All are original "string-pull" boxes and remain factory-SEALED.
Sold as a set.
