    I had never before seen

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    I had never before seen a weapon but on TV.

    'But' is sometimes used to mean 'except', but it's not natural here.

    Would my sentence be correct if I write it like this.

    I had never before seen a weapon except on TV.
