    My dad passed away and left us with 5 firearms which we know nothing about except that they look old. What is the best way to find out (1) if they are antigue guns (2) what the value of the guns are (3) and where to sell them? I have photos of the guns but not sure if we can post pictures in the forums. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! -mcaten

    Look old as in flint lock or percussion cap, or just not modern?

    Look for a manufacturer's name (and a model number there is one) and do a search for it on either:

    As for posting pictures, the best way is to open a free account on something like photobucket.com and then provide image links when posting a message.

    You might also try putting in the Firearms Research forum on this board.

    Yes you can upload photos and you should find someone able to help you identify them.

    Also, you might vistit a book store with some pictures of the guns and look in the Antigues/Hobbies/Firearms section. You should be able to find a price guide there that will give you the value of the firearms based on brand, model, serial number, markings, condition, etc.

    *Looks like Snake Eyes beat me to my helpful suggestion.
