U.S. Model 1841 Mississippi Rifle

The Mississippi Harper’s Ferry 1846 shown below in the gallery represents the U.S. Model 1841 in it’s first year of manufacture by federal Harpers Ferry Armory. Long considered the most beautiful example of a firearm in the 19th century the U.S Model 1841 or “Mississippi” as it was to become known later in the Mexican American War and the Civil War shot as well as it looked.

Coming in at just under 49″ and weighing 9lbs. the Harpers Ferry saw use by frontiersmen, and both sides of the Civil War alike because of it’s fine shooting and functional yet very robust build quality. This firearm comes to The Gun Room Inc. in original dress wearing brass furniture and lacquer on the barrel and is fine to very fine condition. Fully functional and shootable The Gun Room Inc. has it on display until it finds a new home.

Stop in to see the “Mississippi” and many other fine guns from the period to see a piece of history.

Schofield Pistol

Since the very beginning the Schofield Pistol was revolutionary in it’s design and approach to the problems early Americans faced in the Wild West. The Schofield Pistol was designed to be loaded in the saddle by U.S. Calvary soldiers as the typical pistol had to eject and load one cartridge at time through a loading gate making the process difficult while on horseback.

General Schofield’s ingenious solution was as elegant as it was simple, simply actuate the rear sight release latch and shake the pistol open. The shells were ejected all at once and able to be immediately reloaded six at a time rather than one at a time through a loading gate.

The Schofield Pistol’s cylinder spins freely at the 1/4 cock position of the hammer and also while the action is fully open, further allowing access to any of the cylinder’s chambers or all at once. A Skilled shooter could eject and reload faster than any other single action revolver of it’s time even and rival some of the tactical revolvers of today.

It’s been said Annie Oakley used a Schofield, and so did Pat Garret, Billy The Kid, Wild Bill Hickok, Wells Fargo, and many others.

If you appreciate innovation and understated excellence you will for sure take a shine to the Schofield Pistol. The Gun Room Inc. usually has more than one so you have a choice, and if we don’t we can order up one special just for you in your choice of available calibers.

Parker Coach Gun

Every day I work two jobs that I love, Zodiac inflatable boat sales and training, and firearm sales and training. Working with some of the best warriors and sailors anywhere daily I see some great kit while on the job. Funny thing, anyone who knows me, knows I’m a cowboy trapped in a modern world. So when I see something special cowboy it sticks in my head.

As per usual today at The Gun Room Inc. I was taken aback by something that caught my attention from the corner of my eye, and subsequently garnered my admiration. A very nice example of a Damascus Steel Parker Coach Gun was neatly tucked into a nook waiting for someone to notice it.

Yes to say I was impressed by the nonchalance of the Parker would be an understatement as all my attention suddenly shifted from the defensive pistol I was showing to another person (who was equally enamoured with his own gun) to the Parker. While the pictures I took of the shotgun in question are nice to look at, they do no justice to the actual item it’s self.

The one thing I don’t like about my jobs is I can’t own everything that catches my eye, I’m sure many of you experience this too. If you are a cowboy like myself or just someone who appreciates a quality firearm you owe it to your self to stop by The Gun Room Inc. now and then. You never know what you will find, but you can be pretty damn sure it will be very nice and worth owning.

If you want to have a look at this beauty of a coach gun you had better stop in quick because I’m sure it won’t be there long with the caliber of collectors that come thru the doors there. Better yet give them a call and tell them Mike sent you, (503)777-3931, slap some $$ down before that gun goes to a home not yours!

10MM 1911s The Next Big Thing

More and more people are coming to the 1911 platform for the 10mm chambering and the manufacturers are taking notice. In my 1911 group on Facebook flocks of people are discovering what a select few have known all along, and that’s the 1911 in 10mm makes a great hunting pistol as well as a tremendously accurate shooter.

Recently The Gun Room Inc. sold out of all of our old stock of Colt Delta Elites and our new stock as well. During the re-order we decided to bring in a Remington R1 in 10mm and have been pretty blown away at the quality and price.

If you’ve known us for very long you know we only carry the good stuff and if it’s the good stuff you are looking for come in and see what we have.

Night Vision For Everyone

It’s not too often the crew here at The Gun room Inc. gets jazzed about another widget but today was different. Today the little kids came out of us all when we were handed a second gen night vision scope. This is not the old school Vietnam era starlight scope of yore, this is new school digital with multiple modes and reticles and it even works in the day time without a hitch.

This writer was more than impressed when I went to the pitch black basement and touched the power button. I was imagining clearing a bad guy hideout in the dark when someone turned on the lights. Surprise the unit didn’t washout and with a simple flip of the cover the integrated pin hole made the whole operation pretty tacticool!

While these scopes are intended for hogs and bad guys they make night vision available to the average guy for pennies on the dollar. If we would have had this tech back when I was in the service I think some things would have gone much better.

features include:

  • day or night use
  • high optical magnification
  • built in 810nm LED IR illuminator (laser illuminators / target designators on some models)
  • video output (rca)
  • camera resolution 656 x 492
  • selectable electronic reticles
  • field of view 22.5ft @100 yards
  • max detection range 130yd
  • magnification 4.6
  • objective lens diameter 42mm
  • eye relief 2.36 inches
  • 30mm tube diameter
  • 2 x AA batteries
  • weight 23.6 oz

These night vision scopes are priced to fit in everyone’s budget and The Gun Room Inc. has them in stock today.

Milo’s Pick Of The Week

This week Milo has taken a liking to the Forbes M24B Rifle wearing Kryptek camo on the stock. Milo likes this rifle for hunting in the mountains since it’s light and accurate and chambered in the calibers he likes to shoot. The Forbes M24B comes equipped with Talley scope rings that allow the shooter to attach their quality optic of choice for high precision shoots when the mountain critters have the advantage.

Milo likes the non-reflecting barrels that absorb light instead of reflecting it like other lesser blued rifles do. Milo’s approach is simple, when you draw a once in a lifetime tag you should do everything in your power to fill it. The Forbes M24B is a force multiplier, it’s extremely light materials and better than most engineering make this rifle one to look for if you are in the high country or even out in the plains. We always hear Milo chanting “ounces equal pounds, and pounds equal pain” and Milo would know since some of the world’s best hunters come through The Gun Room Inc’s doors.  All Forbes Rifles come fitted with recoil pads and sling points as standard.

Milo is so wound up about the Forbes M24B right now that he says if you come get one in the Kryptek Highlander or the Typhon camo patterns he’ll throw in a matching Kryptek Gun Room Inc. hat for free.

The Forbes M24B is no longer in production but as per usual The Gun Room Inc. has them while the supply lasts in .270, 6.5×55, and 30-06. No one made a rifle in this weight category as good as Melvin Forbes and they continue to be the best lightweight gun available today.

Call The Gun Room Inc. today and get the rifle of your dreams before next season.
