Joe Balickie custom Mauser, his wife’s personal Hunting Rifle!  Guns > Rifles > Mauser Rifles > German
Description: Collectors, here is a chance to own a fine piece of history! If you know custom gun work you know the renowned stock maker Joe Balickie. Joe retired about 14 years ago and is now selling a couple of his personal rifles. This one he made for his wife and it was used on numerous hunting trips. It was made on a Mauser 1909 receiver. The barrel is a Douglas and all metalwork was done by Dave Tally. The engraving was executed by TJ Kaye and the metal finishing by Peter Mazer. It has a skeleton butt plate and grip cap and comes with a period Zeiss C6 in Conetrol rings. Included is a magazine from 1981 that features this gun on the cover! A letter signed by Joe and a handmade (by Joe) scabbard his wife used on horseback. In addition it includes 100 hand loaded in virgin brass rounds. Joe loaded these for this rifle and says it covers the same hole at 100 yards. This is a rare chance to have a top end rifle with real history. Serious buyers can call me and I’ll give you Joe’s phone number. He would be glad to talk with you. Shipping and insurance is $140. Please email me with any questions or larger pictures. [14-0663]

Shipments to Alaska and Hawaii are higher because air shipment is required. Most firearms are shipped within 5 days of receipt of payment. We prefer shipping at the beginning of the week to avoid firearms in transit over weekends.

We package all shipments carefully and insure them for the full purchase price, rounded up to the next $100. In the unlikely event that damage occurs, it is important that you save all packaging material for the claims process. Optics are shipped Priority Mail and most other non-firearm shipments are shipped First Class.

At your local gun shop it might take months to sell. Selling on-line provides instant access to thousands of interested buyers. You won’t find any other on-line dealer willing to sell your firearms for only 10% or listing every gun on 4 separate websites. Selling through an Auction House typically costs 15% and you have to wait several months to sell and longer to receive funds. If properly priced, we will sell your firearms in a week or two.

Trading: We collect guns and usually just trade for guns we want to add to our collections. We often sell guns for others wanting to purchase one of ours. We find this the most fair to both of us. Our Commission is only 10% and we hold the gun you want until yours sells. Please contact us if you want to sell one of yours to buy one of ours.
