C&Rsenal is a website centered on identifying, collecting, and shooting Curio and Relic firearms. Our hope is that this website will serve as an introduction for beginners and eventually a reference point for experienced collectors. New collectors will find information on C&R application, rifle and pistol identifications, and general terminology help. Experienced collectors will hopefully enjoy articles on history, serial date identification, and a few oddball firearms as we endeavor to embrace the obscure. The C&Rsenal team does not claim a single “expert.” We just read and read and read and when we’ve found what we’re looking for we consolidate and post. We invite everyone to register and become involved by commenting on articles, donating information or images, or just by making friends in the community.
We work out of beautiful Charleston, South Carolina and travel the length of the state often. We’ll also occasionally be found in Georgia and North Carolina. If you’re a collector in the area, please let us know! You can learn more about the team, donating, and contacting us by using the menu on the left.
