    Hi everyone,

    My grandfather recently passed away, and he left his firearms to me. I had seen most of his firearms, but not all of them. I recognize most of them, but there are a couple that I have no clue about, and some that I would like to know more about. Any input on any of these guns is appreciated, and if anyone knows an approximate value for these I would like to know as well.

    #1: (Enfield in an aftermarket stock I believe, .303 Brit.)

    #2: (I actually have no idea what this is....I don't even know the caliber)

    #3: (Also....no idea what it is. It has a Williams aperture rear sight and a gold bead front. Chambered for .444 Marlin)

    There are about 7 more guns that I will post pictures on later, these 3 are the ones that I need the most help with though.

    The two you don't know about are Mauser actions. Good shooting guns IMO.

    The .444 is the only one of these three that I have fired. With the iron sights it was shooting very well, much better than I expected to be able to shoot with it.

    Number two is a P14 Enfield. Would have originally been in 303 British. Looks like it still has the original barrel.

    It most definitely is, and is one of my favorites out of the bunch. It will be with me on my next hog hunting trip for sure.... Along with my (also new to me) Winchester 94 in .30-30
