    My uncle recently passed away and left me a few things.

    One of the items was a box of 3 seperate walking can guns made by a company called Griffon. I believe they were manufactured in 1982.
    They have half circle wooden handles and fire .36 cal (.375) round balls,
    using No.11 percussion caps to ignite a charge of 13 grains FFF black powder.

    Paperwork says it shoots with sufficent force to penetrate three 1" pine boards.

    They have never been fired and have all the paper work with them. Anyone know what they would be worth?

    Do they still make these? I can find no info on them.

    Thx!

    First thing I'd do is check on legality of cane guns in your state. Here in California I'm fairly sure you'd be busted for owning them.

    Maybe I'll take them to the gun show this weekend.

    IIRC Blackpowder guns aren't considered guns, and you can buy a BP revolver at age 18 from a store. So if they aren't really guns...
