I do like old arms... or any arms for that matter. lol I have an 1892 8mm Mannlicher Lebel and an 1894 8mm Mauser.

I like old arms too. A good majority of the arms I own are way older than what I am. The earliest/oldest I own is a 1913 Peter The Great 1895 Russian Nagant Revolver. Most likely it served in both World Wars. If I can, I will try and see if I can get some pics of it up later.

I also have a Chinese T53 with all matching numbers except for the butt plate. At one time I had 2 PU snipers, a 1930 Tula Hex, an M38 and a couple of M44s. I eventually came to the point of selling most of them off to fund other C&R purchases such as 1895 Nagants, Tokarevs, Makarovs, SKS rifles, and Swiss K31 rifles.

My oldest is a Snider Enfield Mk2 breechloader that started out as a musket in 1865 and was converted by the brits about 1869ish. Really neat old gun.

I don't mind looking and learning about old guns - It's very interesting - I like history!!

But I'm not really interested in owning any.
I enjoy looking at the ones you guys own. :great:

It's really a "Buyer Beware" thing with old guns...

Same as cars - it looks good on the internet - but what you get could be a wore out POS... )-:

And basically everything I've owned up until a few years ago was wore out junk... Cars, TV's, etc.

And I like to shoot my guns - shoot the hell out of them!!

I'm not saying they're a bad investment - I wouldn't like to own a gun to look at or be afraid to shoot.

That being said - I haven't gone to the shooting range for a long time!! It's time to go do that!!!
And, I have an old pistol that belonged to my Dad I don't shoot.
I just take it out once in a while and look at it and think of him... It makes me feel better!! (-:

He's been gone for 32 years now.

Jason, there is nothing wrong at all of how you feel and think when it comes to firearms, your possessions, or whatever. What is right for you, may not be right for others but, what is right for you is more important. Be comfortable with how you feel and what brings you pleasure and peace.

spongemonkey is right, you are more a shooter than a collector.. nothing wrong with that. only a fool buys an authentic civil war musket and puts 1000 rounds a year through it. You buy that as an investment and put it up and buy a modern replica and shoot the snot out of it ;)

I was mistaken, it was made in 1860 not 65.

These pics were taken by the previous owner, I always save the pics when I buy a gun because my picture skills frankly suck. Interesting tidbit, you can make poorman shells for this gun with plastic 24 gauge shotgun hulls trimmed down. A hell of a lot cheaper than buying the actual brass for a .577 snider.

I've got a couple Mosins, a 91/30 and a M44..really cool old rifles.
I love old pistols, and I think my oldest is a S&W 38 Safety Hammerless, Third Model, shipped from the factory between 1894 to 1896.
Someday I want to get it lettered along with a few other old S&W revolvers.
I also have a H&R Self Loading .32, second series made in 1919
I've fired both of these guns and both are mechanically sound.

You are welcome. My oldest handguns are a pair of Webley mkVI .455 revolvers. one made in 1918 the other made in 1918/19 both in very good shape, but unfortunately were trimmed to shoot .45acp
