Merz Antique Firearms of Minnesota is one of the most respected and experienced dealers of collectible and antique weapons. We specialize in old guns made by the Winchester Repeating Arms Co. of New Haven, CT. We have a large inventory of antique lever-action Winchester Rifles and Carbines. In addition, we handle most other types of antique guns including Henry Rifles, Colt, Marlin, Remington, Springfield, Savage, Sharps, Smith & Wesson.  We also have a nice selection of American shotguns as well as classic European shotguns. Fine antique firearms are a proven stable investment, remain strong, and continue to show growth in many areas.  In recent years we have seen a lot of renewed interest in buying and selling old guns, due to the rise in popularity of Cowboy Action Shooting as well as many new television programs featuring antique guns. Whether you are a collector, investor, history buff, cowboy action shooter, or you just like antiques and neat old things, have a look around our site and let us know if you have any questions.
