    These were sent to me last week from my 96 year old uncle. Said he wanted to keep them in the family

    Both appear unfired, he got them in the late 1950s or early 60s.

    ABSOLUTELY! Keep these in the family. Fantastic condition on fine weapons. The guys at the Rimfire Forum would be salivating all over these guns.

    Nice!

    I found this one in the "Odd Lots" at Century.
    Needed a rear sight blade and screws and a cylinder retention spring.

    H&R 926 - 9 shot

    Can't wait to shoot it.

    That 61 Magnum is a very desireable and expensive rifle. On Gunbroker clean examples like yours are bringing $1,200-$1,400. I bought one last winter for $1,000.00 and felt like I did well. I think your uncle thinks a lot of you.

    " That 61 Magnum is a very desireable and expensive rifle. "

    Is that what the rifle is ? Looks a lot like a Remington Model 12 that my grandfather had.
    I would have loved to have it but my uncle took it home.

    I have the Winchester 1890 22 Short my great granddad bought for my grandad in the 1920s. It gets used, gently, every once in a while.

    Also, the single shot Stevens my granddad bought my dad, used, for his 12th birthday in 1939. That one gets shot regularly by the grandkids.

    I love them, my dad still has an old pump action .22. I have an old 60's Winchester model 190. Its value to most is under $200, but my grandfather gave it to me shortly before he died, so itis priceless. I love love the art work on that box. Those were the good ole days.

    "IF" you consider the 50's "old school". Then since these date back to 1959, it's old school.

    Here is one of mine. I bought it at a farm auction in northcentral Arkansas when I was a kid. Paid $2.00 for it. Still as accurate today as when I bought it... 60 years ago. According to a gunsmith in our little town at that time, it was manufactured around 1910.

    A family friend gave my son an old Favorite he found in the rafters of his basement while renovating to install a bar. Needs parts and some existing parts (like the hammer) are installed backward. Anybody got a good source? Or is it just best to web-search and take my chances?
