The Kings Armoury sells used guns. We offer collectors a source of used guns specialising in antique guns, vintage guns, collectable guns and military guns.

The website is operated by The Kings Armoury, a firearms dealership located in the wheatfields of Western Australia, by proprietor Michael King and his long time best friend John Kurzer. Michael began his lifelong interest in target shooting when he was 4 years old. He began collecting firearms upon receiving his first rifle from his father for his 9th birthday. Michaels father worked at the Small Arms Factory (SAF) at Lithgow for 46 years, more than 10 of those years as the head foreman in charge of rifle assembly and reconditioning (FTR), and his grandfather worked these when it first opened from 1913 until WW1 broke out. When Michael was 6 years of age his father took him into the SAF Museum and he became fascinated by historical firearms and has been ever since. Michael is fascinated by the living history aspect of historical firearms, not to glorify war but rather as a reminder of the sacrifices made and also of what not to do in future moments.

Michael King shooting percussion pistolUpon leaving school when he was 16 he followed in his Fathers footsteps and commenced a Toolmaking apprenticeship at the Small Arms Factory which included extensive training in all aspects of gun manufacture, design, testing and troubleshhoting. In the 3rd year of his apprenticeship he also commenced training in Mechanical Engineering and he later worked for many years in process engineering. He worked on many commercial projects as well as on small arms research and development projects. Michael was also involved in troubleshooting rifle manufacturing processes. In 1983 after becoming the Department of Defence Support Apprentice of the Year he was sent to the UK for a year to work at the Royal Small Arms Factory on attachment. All in all Michael worked at the SAF for 15 years then took a redundancy package. For many years he also ran a Public Address business part time doing sound and lighting for bands. Since 1996 he has been running his own training consultancy business. A respected public speaker, he regularly receives invitations to address large gatherings all over the world in the field of personal growth. He also works within the business community, lecturing on ethical business strategies and purpose/service-oriented business visioning.

This is a firearms dealership with a difference. Michael's business philosophy is based on 45 years of collecting experience and target shooting. If there were only one thing that he can share from these years of experience, it would be that "Reputation is Everything." He will always be a collector at heart, so he knows what it is like to spend hard-earned money ordering something over the phone or Internet only to be disappointed. His main goal for this site is to have satisfied customers who will come back in the future to add to their collections without hesitation. He has made a commitment to represent every item with a thorough description and detailed photographs.
