Image 2 of 5

Manufactured in 1891, this classic Winchester Model 1873 Saddle Ring Carbine has what it takes to get collectors drooling. The 1873 Saddle Ring Carbine is among the most desirable Winchesters, particularly if they are all original. This 20-inch barreled rifle chambered in .44-40 is one such example; the rifle even has retained approximately 85-percent of its original factory bluing. The firearm also features full magazine, carbine post front sight, folding carbine ladder rear sight, two barrel bands, saddle ring with stud, walnut stocks and carbine butt plate. Estimate: $10,000-$14,000.

Morphy Auctions had a heck of start to 2016, moving $1.1 million worth of firearms at its January Las Vegas sale. And the Pennsylvania-based company is shooting to keep its momentum rolling with its next event of the year. Morphy is slated to hold a two-day auction April 9-10 at its Denver, Pa., location, with more than 1,500 lots ready to cross the block. The auction house has a fairly wide spectrum of firearms set for sale, including a number of one-of-a-kind guns. Here is a sneak peak of a few of the more desirable guns that are certain to have firearms collectors drooling at the sale.
