    Just curious what your oldest gun is. I got bit by the mosin Nagant bug about a year ago . I got one from 1934 . Came with all the accessories for $100.

    I bought 440 rounds of ammo for it for $90 lol and Ive never shot it ...

    I just applied for my FFL C&R so I will be collecting a few from pre 1899 ! can't wait !

    I have a 1975/76 Ruger Mk1 target pistol with the 9 round mag and the 6 7/8" barrel. So much fun to shoot! I'd like to get a new one and put this one away. The Mk III standard 6" looks almost like it.

    I have a 1909 Volunteer Arms (trade name of an old KY store-its really an Iver Johnson) single shot 12ga. It was my grandfathers hunting shotgun, and kept food on the table for my grandpa, grandma, and dad during the very tough years they lived through.

    I have my Grand fathers S&W Top Break Double Action 4th in .32 made from 1883-1909. If I ever get it back from my brother I'll post a pic.
     
  13. I have an old Deutschwerke .25 auto pocket pistol that belonged to my grandfather. My dad tells me that grandpa bought it in the 30's when he used to travel for his job a lot. Bought it so he'd be safe on the road.

    Hex receiver? Did it still have the scope? What factory? How's the bolt handle angle?

    I have a 1939 Tula made 91/30. This is probably the most accurate of all my weapons even with just the iron sights. 5 round shot group in a nickel at 60 meters. Simply amazing! I know, I know.... I'd be happy to give a demonstration though. :)

    Loud as hell and kicks like a mule. I love it!
     
  16. I also have a couple mosins. One hex receiver, one round. Put the round one in a sporty stock and put a scope on it. Fun as hell to shoot. Cheap too.

    A Winchester Model 1894 manufactured in 1898. It's in beautiful condition, but the trouble is - it's chambered in .32-40. Not too easy to find ammo for this old girl.
