The Yankee Armorer in Mahwah, NJ. I was looking for a gunsmith to fix a broken screw on my great-great-grandfather's civil war musket, and the place's name leapt out at me as quite appropriate. I took the musket up there this week. Tiny little shop squeezed between two others in a small strip of stores. One gun case chock-full of antiques, mainly WWII era - lots of Lugers and Broomhandle Mausers with stocks (asking up to $4k for the latter!). The owner is 87, a veteran of the Pacific war, and got screwed out of his pension when he was fired from (ironically) Panasonic. He was extremely knowledgeable about my musket and told me a few things I didn't know (it was the only Bridesburg he's seen that hadn't been converted to a trap-door cartridge gun). I got talking about the other guns Dad left me, and he seemed interested. I feel the need to get rid of some, since I'm passing 60 and have no one to leave them to. I described Dad's Luger. At first he said he had enough Lugers, but I mentioned Dad got it from a Japanese officer he killed. The guy immediately thought I had a Nambu, of course, but I told him no, Mauser-built 1939 Luger. My research showed it belonged to the Dutch East Indies army, which explains its presence in the Pacific. Maybe the officer appropriated it from a Dutch soldier. The guy expanded on that and told me the Japanese officers had to buy their own sidearms from approved inventory, so it's likely it was confiscated and put into said inventory. Now he seems interested. So when I go to get the musket back, I'll pack up a half dozen of the handguns Dad left behind and see if he wants them. He seemed especially interested in the 1940s Walther PP I have (no, not PPK, PP). Not lookin' to make a bundle, just thinking the guns deserve a better home than my basement. And no, dammit, he wasn't interested in that S&W Model 1 I mentioned in the other thread. He said it might be worth $300 in original condition, but the replacement sideplate kills the value. Dammit. Also - 87? I hope to hell he lives long enough to fix my musket!
