Pre-ban IMI Uzi A-Series 9mm carbine, estimated at $1,500-$25,000 at Montrose Auction.

Highly desirable firearms top the 630-lot offering at Montrose July 20

MONTROSE, GA — A fine and collectible array of firearms comes to market July 20 at Montrose Auction. The offering includes military arms, sporting arms, and classic American, Israeli and European weapons. The complete catalog is now open for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

Topping the list is a fine, pre-ban IMI Uzi A-series carbine chambered in 9mm. The piece is all original with the US-required 16in barrel along with a “dummy” 3.5in standard barrel. Being an A-series, it features the folding stock (the wood stock shown in the image is also included). Created in the late 1940s by Israel Defense Force Major Uziel “Uzi” Gal, authentic Uzis have become one of the most highly sought after weapons in the world. This example carries a $1,500-$25,000 estimate.

Described as a “recently discovered rifle from Virginia,” this United States Marine Corps .30-06 Springfield Model 1903A1 sniper rifle comes with its original 8-power USMC Unertl sniper scope and caps. Fitted with a modified hand guard, “C” stock with two cross bolts and a checkered steel butt plate, the rifle is Parkerized and the scope retains 98% of its original bluing. It is estimated at $10,000-$15,000.

The final highlight is a Beretta DT11 Black Edition over-under 12-gauge shotgun. A 2021 example of the “workhorse” of Beretta’s line of shotguns, it includes interchangeable choke tubes, 3in chambers, single selective triggers with ejectors and a manual safety. The varnished two-piece highly figured European walnut pistol grip stocks add to the gun’s beautiful presentation. It is estimated at $9,000-$12,000.
