Frontier Americana of Fargo


02/23/2018  New year has started out just fine.  The Mesa show and auction was a great success from all accounts.  Shows have been a little slow but on line response has been steady.  If I can do anything for you, just call.


06/03/2017  Thank you for your patience.  I have moved but more importantly, the ATF has come through with my address changed FFL.  Only took 2 1/2 months.  At any rate, I will start updating my for sale items after the 4th.

05/13/2017  We are moving to a new location and during the transition much of the inventory will be in storage.  I ask for your patience during this time.  If there is an item you have questions about, please call.  I will try to answer any questions, locate the item you are interested in and help as much as I can.  I'll be running around like a decapitated rooster while I'm moving but that's to be expected.  Thank you.    

02/06/2017 If you missed the Mesa show and auction, its too bad.  Great show, 92% sold ratio at auction.  We are accepting quality consignments for our June auction in Ft Worth.  Don't miss out again!

12/23/2016  Just a minute to wish anyone who passes this way a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.

09/15/2016  OGCA Show with the WACA group was a little slow.  There was some really great items there and the displays were educational and interesting.  Just a little shy on the public interest.  This coming week end is National Gun Day in Louisville.

New season of shows coming up.  We've tried to keep the calendar updated.  Our advertising has switched some.  We've been placing items on and it seems to be getting some attention.  Of course you should always check this website first.

Frontier Americana of Fargo has its roots in the '50s TV cereals and Saturday afternoon movies. My love for the American West, its characters, tales and tools only grew over the years.  Antique firearms became my primary interest in the early '70s and new “rage” of cowboy collectibles only validated my long-held theory of their importance.  Forty years in the business has not dimmed my excitement or interest in the people and events of America’s western expansion.  Names like Hawken, Winchester, Colt, Moran, Collins, Remington, Russel, Earp and Cody still excite my imagination, now from a more studious perspective.

Along with my own business I have been honored with the trust of Mr. Brian Lebel (no, I’m not his bodyguard) and am now firearms consultant to his Old West Events, the Mesa and new Santa Fe Shows and Auctions. You’ll have to look a long way to find better people than Brian, Melissa and their staff.  “Reputation Matters”  

So, take a look at the site.  If I can assist you in any way, let me know.  But realize you are facilitating a hopeless “old west-a-holic”
