    Ok people, let's see those relics you've got hiding in your collection.

    Mine's a U.S. Army model 1917 S&W revolver chambered in .45acp. It was issued to the US government in April 1918. I'm guessing after WWI it went to the US boarder patrol because of what's engraved inside the left grip.

    It was supposed to be "firearm", but that's still pretty cool. Any idea what that dates to?

    600-900 B.C. depending on who you ask. I also have a saber which might have rode to war with Napoleon's troops and an antique gurka kukri.

    My oldest firearms are a 1945 IBM Carbine and a 1943 Victory Model S&W .38 spl.
     
  8. I've got a model 94 Winchester in 32-40 according to Winchester records the serial number shows it was manufactured 1899
    Its a octagon barreled black powdered cartridge gun. I also have a 1926 Stevens ranger pump 12ga
    On the 94 the wood is in great shape metal is ok.

    Both of my Mosins have 1943 stamped on them, so they are my oldest firearms.

    '39 Japanese Arisaka 7.7 Sniper rifle. Pulled it out of the safe couple years ago after being in there for 20 some years. Had a bulge on the side of the barrel. Their metallurgy at the time wasn't up to par and intergranular corrosion was rampant in their metals. It had been cleaned and stored properly too. Bummed me out :mad:
