Welcome to Pre98 Antiques, we have been around since 1989 dealing mostly in WW2 arms and militaria. Our specialties are mint condition firearms and very nice holsters. You may know us from gun or militaria shows (we do over 35 a year) or from our listings on eBay. We decided to open this web site to give you exclusive access to what we have in stock in the way of firearms and accessories. We will continue to improve the site and hope you will visit often to see what we have dredged up.
To that end, I would like to welcome you to Pre98.com, my online site for gun sales. Here you will find mostly military firearms in mint condition and very nice holsters. There will also be some rare and desirable commercial guns. This site gives you exclusive access to the firearms and accessories that made it into my inventory. Now you don't have to wait for a gun show to see what I have found.
Gathering the best items is too big of a job for one person to handle. I have a virtual army of collectors who regularly channel new goodies into the pipeline. As a very serious and advanced collector myself, my eye is trained to be quite discerning about what we pick up. I take great pride in the herd that we bring to market. I personally guarantee the authenticity of each item and the accuracy of its description.
Since most of my customers are serious collectors, almost all of our business is with Curio and Relics (C&R) licensees and FFL transfers. When you find that special gun you've been looking for, we'll work with you to make the buying process as painless as possible while complying with all applicable firearms regulations.
If you have any items you are no longer interested in keeping, please contact me. We are always looking to find a home for your unwanted treasures. You may also contact me if you are searching for something that isn't in current inventory. I may be able to find what you're looking for with my extensive network of collectors and the gun shows I attend.
Thank you for visiting my new site. As you can see, it is a work in progress, but we will soon have things up and running. Please visit often as we add new features and functionality and to see the new and interesting items we have added to our catalog.
Scotty Benedict and Crew.
P.S. If you cannot find what you need in our catalog, please visit our friends Tom's site.
