    What's the oldest firearm you own? Mine would be my Mosin Nagant, manufactured in 1944.

    Great Grandfather's 1931 FN Belgian Browning made A-5. 1931 is approximated only because the FN factory was destroyed by the nazis in WWII along with all records. Supposedly one of the first 10,000 Browning auto shotguns ever brought in to the US, stamped Ogden, Utah.

    Probably put 25-35,000 rounds (100 Rnds/Week -- 25-30 weeks/year -- dozen years) through her in the N-SSA.

    Great rifle.

    My great-grandfathers rabbit ear 20 guage. Made sometime in the 1890's. My dad mailed home a WW-2 trophy in 1945. FN made SXS double made sometime prior to WW-2. Dad "liberated" it in late April 1945. Cost him $1.50 postage to mail it back home. Not as old as some, but a quality gun that still sees use and with a great story.

    Smith & Wesson Model 1½, which was sold by M.W. Robinson, New York City, on December 9th, 1869. BTW M.W. Robinson was S&W's largest distributor at the time.

    A 1920's era S&W .38


    Its in pretty rough condition, but it belonged to my Dad so the value of the gun is more sentimental than financial. :eek:
