Today we’ve brought on TFB Writer Sam S to talk about some curious firearms he’s run across over his years as a gunsmith and employee at a gun shop. Most of you listening have probably come across your own weird finds too. Whether they’re genuine mysteries like a revolver Sam recently discovered, or an oddly configured discontinued rimfire pistol from the 40s, sometimes mystery guns just show up in the consignment case with a whole story to tell, or mysteries to unravel from their previous owner(s). So join Sam and I today as we talk about some of the oddest cases we’ve had like this, and be sure to leave us some comments below letting us know what kind of weird stuff you’ve come across for sale at your local pawn shop or gun store!

On today’s episode of TFB’s Behind The Gun podcast we’ve brought back fellow TFB writer Sam S, author of our weekly series the TFB Armorer’s Bench, as well as one of our resident gunsmiths and gun history nerds. While it’s not as common today to come across weird undocumented firearms from a bygone era, you can still find these oddities in pawn shops and inside the consignment cabinets of local gun shops. Today Sam and I talk a bit about some of the weird guns we’ve come across over the years including a mystery manufacture revolver and a High Standard rimfire pistol with a questionable set of components. So join us this week as we talk about all the weird, and mismatched guns we’ve come across in in this episode of TFB’s Behind The Gun Podcast.
