About Antique Gun Appraiser David Condon

David Condon started collecting antique weapons at the early age of 7, purchasing his first two guns from Herb Glass Sr. in 1949. He started dealing eight years later before founding C&N Guns in 1959. The company was subsequently renamed twice: first as Winchester Gallery in 1975 and later as David Condon, Inc. in 1979. It was also in 1979 that David started his mail-order catalog business. The following year saw him open his retail store in Middleburg.

Today, David Condon, Inc. is a trusted antique gun appraiser and one of the oldest and most respected dealerships in the field. We are state- and federally-licensed with a retail headquarters, full-service website, online catalog, and show schedule.

In addition, we have sold over 250,000 antique and collector arms to date. Our company has consistently proven that we can successfully market the largest, most sophisticated collections of antique handguns and other historical weapons.
