Cowan’s October online auction features an eclectic mix of WWI and interwar period firearms, including a collection of U.S. Model 1903’s, European handguns, and Mausers from various conflicts. The sale begins by offering an assortment of antique powder horns and gun accessories, followed by a fine collection of pre to post Civil War-era bayonets and swords. Transitioning into the WWI and interwar arms, the sale then closes out by offering a selection of Pre-64 sporting guns and desirable Colt commemorative handguns.
