I'll apologize now if this is in the wrong forum but I recently bought a hard case marked King Gun Sight Co. I assume it is a range box but I've never seen another. I only have one of the King catalogs and didn't see it listed. It has a removable top tray and it looks like a divider was removed from the lower area.

Is this a range box? ... salesman's sample box? Any thoughts and opinions are appreciated.

The insert (for lack of a more technical term) is likely missing, but it would/should have held four weapons vertically, and was padded, with a tightening device to hold them securely - just like the various 'Pachmayr' cases - while the tray would hold the various things a competitive pistol shooter might need - carbide lamp, pencil, scorebook, screwdrivers, magazines, cleaning tools, et al.

If the last owner wasn't a shooter, then removing the insert would give a nice storage box.

Amazing that it survived in such wonderful condition, loss of the insert notwithstanding. Thanks for sharing.

It's one of their range boxes. Very nice find.

One of my catalogs listed them:



(I've scanned in all my catalogs by the way, I've tossed them up over at the S&W forum if anyone wants to peruse them, I could probably put them up over here on the Colt forum if anyone would like.


Yours is the second box I have seen, I found one some time back but it is in significantly rougher shape. I need someone to restore it at some point:















Also, that's a dang fine KST you have there!

Where are the rest of you King guns? Any excuse to post Kings should be taken!

I only have a few Colt King modified guns at this point. I just love them to death though:

(my favorite, which doesn't technically belong here, but the design started with a revolver frame)










A fun little new service:







A more fun new service:






My only woodsman, still, I feel like such a failure for not being able to buy any more:
