The Dunn Armory… Savage Model 755A

I guess at this point in my life, I could be considered a collector of firearms. Within my collection, I have a collection of long recoil operated shotguns. This would include Browning Auto 5s, Remington Model 11s and my most recent acquisition, a Savage Model 755A. All of the previously mentioned shotguns are based on John Browning’s designs. Like Remington, Savage Arms also licensed the design from Browning. The Model 755, at first glance, does not look like the other “humpback” shotguns I love so much, but the way the gun functions is very similar to the rest of the pack. Continue reading


The Liberator Pistol

Image07-p03I love firearms that have a rich history or a good story behind them. The Liberator pistol sure meets those qualifications! These one-shot pistols were produced during WWII and were dropped in mass quantities into occupied/enemy territory. The idea was that resistance fighters and civilians (who were disarmed) could use them to put one well placed shot into the dome of an enemy soldier. The soldier’s weapons could then be “liberated.” Continue reading


Mystery Matchlock

Throughout time and around the world, man has made some historic finds by accident. In Thailand, the Emerald Buddha which now rests in Bangkok’s Grand Palace, was originally found after lightening struck a chedi (temple) in the mid 1400s and revealed the statue’s precious green jade from under it’s stucco covering. All through Western Civilization, many statues and treasures were painted over to make them look cheap and valuables were cast into cement. Many relics were lost or destroyed before archaeologists and historians have realized their finds. I own such a piece that could have easily been resold or even thrown away. Continue reading

Some things are just meant to be, for instance, me and my new (old) Remington Double Derringer, Type 3.

When I was a kid, I had a Derringer cap gun and I have wanted the real thing ever since. My Mom told me that my great Grandmother used to carry a Derringer in her boot back in the 1800s! She lived in a tough little coal mining town in Virginia. Those folks worked hard and partied even harder! Continue reading


There is a Place for Cheap Guns

DunnBy Robert Dunn

I would like to write about cheap guns in this article. What do I mean when I say, “Cheap Guns”? I could mean that they are cheaply priced, meaning a good value, or I might be saying that it is a cheap piece of crap… or both! Some folks are lucky enough to be able to say that they would have nothing to do with a cheap gun. Well, I would bet that most of the people that own cheap guns would love to be able to have the same attitude. Continue reading


AK-47 — The most prolific rifle in the world

DunnBy Robert Dunn

The AK-47 is the most prolific rifle in the world. It is a weapon that has changed the course of human history like water has cut rivers into the earth. The AK can be seen on flags, money, T-Shirts and in the hands of just about every nationality in existence and some that do not even exist anymore. The AK stands for Avtomat Kalashnikova and the 47 was the year that the rifle was manufactured. The rifle was designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov and the Soviet Armed Forces began using the AK-47 in 1949. The AK replaced the older Russian used weapons, such as the Mosin-Nagant and SKS rifles.

Western Field 20 Gauge Shotgun Restoration

When I started working on the Western Field shotgun, I already had two other “projects” laying around the house. This particular firearm was entirely covered in fuzzy rust and the bolt was fused shut from corrosion. The stock was moldy and needed some care too. The plastic trigger guard on this old guy was warped straight from screw to screw! There was a good inch of space between the top of the trigger guard and the bottom of the stock and the screws were torqued tightly in the wood. Continue reading
