I found your shop as a link from College Hill Arsenal where I have purchased many items from Tim, so I felt confidant in ordering from you.

The CDV's arrived yesterday and I am very happy with them. I will definitely be ordering from you again in the future.

Thanks, Kirk

Hello John, I want to thank you for the excellent transaction we had on the carbine, and to complement you on the very stylized authentication of my carbine. During the forty years I have been collecting I have never received such an attractive and detailed document. You are a class act. I will contact you under separate coverage about other items I am looking for. - Bob

The sabre arrived today in good condition today. I'm very pleased with it.
Hope to do more business with you in the future.

I received the Colt and it is just as you described, which is just what I was looking for. All the numbers appear to match and the finish has virtually no pitting. It shows honest wear and with the exception of one screw that was possibly replaced (as mentioned in the description), it looks great. Thank you very much
Thanks again, and I will continue to peruse your web site.
Best regards,
Hi John:
I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my purchase of the 1850 officer's sword. It will make an excellent addition to my collection. I found a sword just like it pictured in the Echoes of Glory:Arms and Equipment of the Confederacy. The one pictured on pages 74 & 75 was used by a Captain from the 26th Louisiana Infantry. It came from the Confederate Memorial Hall in New Orleans. Even the blade engraving is exact.
Thanks again,
Hey John, wanted to let you know that the shells arrived and I am very pleased w/ both....thanks for the certs. of authenticity. - Brian, Va.

UPS just delivered the Archer Bolt. Can't tell you how pleased I am with it. It is a Beauty. UPS got on the Ball with their delivery time. Thank you for the good service, and I plan to see you Saturday. I really like the way you do business. I guess i'm like a kid, can't wait for it to arrive. T.L.

Nikki and John, received both guns safely and I am very pleased w/ both purchases. Payment is in the mail for the second gun. Take care, Brian

Hey John, received the 3 guns, all very nice. I especially like the Cooper! The loading lever on the Whitney is original to the gun. Let me know the final price on the Whitney and I will get it in the mail to you this morning. Traveling this afternoon for business and out the rest of the week. I like the model 1849 Colt that you just posted. One of the best cylinder scenes I have ever seen on a Colt. Thanks again for everything. B.L.

John, I have been on vacation and got back in town Sunday night and picked up my mail on Monday. I got the bullet and it's a beauty for my collection. I will continue to watch your site and keep up the good work with the relics.

Thanks again,

Hello John and Nikki,
The M1862 .36 cal Police model Colt circa 1863 I purchased from your company arrived today very well packaged, and I was very surprised with its condition; outstanding!!! The pistol is a very tight piece that indexes perfectly with "a lot a character" and you where right in your comments when you stated the pistol cracks just like the day it was made " A beautiful sound to my ears" I have several of these pistols but this one is my favorite.

Thank you very much for you professionalism it was a great buying experience, I will be back in a few months for more. Please, take care and have a great evening.


john, the pike arrived today,,,a neat relic! thanks,tom

Got the Mississippi "I" button and I'm happy. Thanks. T.K.

I got the notes today. They look great. Thank you. - Ed

Hi John:

Long over due thankyou for a really nice dag and the safe arrival of it. The Mexican American War soldier dag I bought from you awhile ago arrived fine and I have enjoyed it much.

Please keep me in mind if you get another Mex American War Dag or any Confederate images of enlisted or Junior Officers.

Thanks again, Brent C.

"Hey John, I have been meaning to write this email for a long time, but have been very busy at work w/ traveling. I received both pistols and I am very pleased! I especially like the one made by the Washington Co." - Brian

"John & Nikki: I received the shell today and I am very pleased with it. I actually have a 32pndr. confederate shell that has deeper pitting than the one that i just bought from you. Would i be safe to say that this shell is a case shot cannonball? It feels heavy enough to be. Thanks to both of you for the sell and I am pleased to have it in my collection. Your Rebel friend." - Jack, New York
