    I inherited 5 guns today.

    I went to the in-laws down in Panama City today and rescued from a storage shed 4 rifles and a shotgun.

    The top rifle is a WInchester Model 94 AE chambered in 30-30, manufactured in the early 1980's I believe.

    Middle is a Winchester 1892 chambered in 38-40, manufactured in 1916.

    The last is a Remington model 12 .22 pump, manufactured in the mid 1930's

    I also picked up an older Remington 870 wingmaster and a Remington 7400 semi auto 30-06. Not a bad day all in all.

    I'd say congrats but due to the circumstances I guess that's not exactly right... so... nice additions to the collection?

    It was certainly well worth the drive.
    Nice find...

    They belonged to my wife's uncle. He passed a couple of years ago, seemed like a great guy from what I knew of him. We only got to sit down and talk a couple of times before the cancer got him.
    These guns are " technically" my son's given by his grandmother but since Braxton is only 16 months old I will just have to take care of them for 17 or so years.

    Very nice inheritance there. They look to be in very good condition considering the storage. Do you get history flashbacks when you handle them? That Winchester 1892 looks rather interesting with that saddle ring. Have you found out what they are actually worth?

    If only guns could talk.

    I really have no idea how much the guns are worth. I would like help finding out though.

    I personally own the model 94 in 30-30 and the Rem. 7400 in 30-06 Both nice guns. The Rem 7400 is a top of the line Auto loader. Sweet gun. I have a Leupold scope on it and is very accurate. You did very well. I hope I get lucky like that one day. Just like Christmas

    I have a Remington Model 121 which I think is about the same as you have. My Dad won it on a ten cent raffle ticket back in the 50's. I grew up shooting it, still have it today, it's no tellling how many .22's bullets have gone through it. It's a great natural pointer.

    Congratulations on your find.

    It is hard to tell the condition of your 38-40 SRC, there is one on the Cabelas websight in good+ condition, they are asking $3,299. Yours should be worth over $1000 now.

    I am glad they went to good hands and they have a very young future owner.

    Thanks so much for the neato photograph. I like all three. Especially the two "oldies.".

    Took a deer with a '73 Winchester .38-40 once. A 100 yard shot and worked as well as any .30-06.

    I'm glad you rescued them. Sounds like they found a good home with you.
