guyette and deeter



St. Michaels, Maryland – Guyette and Deeter, Inc. entered the fine sporting arms business with their inaugural firearms auction Saturday February 4th, 2023. The sale contained a variety of fine quality sporting arms, varying in quality from truly investment grade material on down, delivering something for collectors and shooters alike.

By all counts, the sale was a resounding and smashing success grossing $2.86 million, and more than a dozen auction records achieved! The sale started with an in-person crowd of more than 100 attendees who were eager to see how things might perform given the company's new entree in to this genre. Lot number 1, a superb A. Galazan 20ga Boss Action Shotgun, Serial Number 1 started the sale and immediately flew past its high estimate in a fierce bidding battle, finally settling at $51,000 against a pre-sale estimate of $27,500-$42,500 and that lot set the tone for the rest of the auction. Nearly 80% of the lots in this auction sold above their pre-auction high estimate! Other exceptional results seemed commonplace in the sale with a very rare Parker BHE Grade 28ga topping the charts at $126,000, and a VHE 410ga with its original case and paperwork selling at $102,000, both records for their type.

Guyette and Deeter is now aggressively seeking high quality consignments of fine sporting arms for their September 2023 Auction. The sale already includes a superb and rare Parker BHE Grade 28ga and other highly desirable collectible arms. To learn more about this sale, or to consign to it, please email us at
