Remington 1900- Is it a relic?

Question for the experts- Is my Model 1900, made in October 1900, still considered under law to be a firearm, or does it fall into another category such as relic, antique or such, as would a cap and ball revolver?

Eligible for C&R, but made after 1899, so not an antique. Still transfers with a 4473 from an FFL.
I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

USAF is right, but if keep in good shape it still can be used. I hunt with an Ithaca made in 1902 and my partner uses a 1900. Both guns have taken a lot of Grouse, Pheasant and Quail. There is a certain pleasure in hunting with old classic guns.

as stated above, C&R not a antique. i own and shoot a rem 1900 made in 1906 with 32 F&F steel barrels, i even shot a 25-25 with it at trap. it took some doing because of the drop in the butt stock for me, i only shoot light loads and 1-oz-1-1/8oz and have had no problems at all. you sure get the looks when you come on line at the trap shoots, sometimes i slip a black powder load it to scare the poop out of them. eastbank.

My best shotgun is an early rem 11. Rough as a cob outside, but has been gone through internally making it better than new. Taking off 100 years of use and making things shiny again is as enjoyable as shooting it. Made in 1913, and it is one of my two workhorses. 1913 model 11 is modified choke, the 1926 model 11 is full choke. The older guns have a different feel to them, a warmth not unlike that you feel with s good friend.
Spellchecker and autocorrect is ran by anti-gun people who think that a "hi-point" should be "hip ointment" and a "parabellum" is a "parable lump" and so forth. Please excuse idiotic things that the electronics think I said that I never said. http://www.damnyouautocorrect.com/
