    Oldest Gun - Hijack!!!

    Chris did a thread on 'Oldest gun owned'.

    Made me wonder, whats the oldest gun CARRIED?

    Not talking about the oldest design here, but the actual chronological age of the weapon. Most of us have fairly new weapons it seems for carry, but there might be some old timers out there.

    Ahah - new twist eh

    Well I can't join the party really, because of my SIG - which at a modest three years from new has yet to grow a beard

    If however I were to carry my Sistema 1927 - that would be a bit more ''up there'' at around 1950 IIRC.

    I carry a S&W 59 that is in almost new condition (although that won't last long, as I carry every day now). The 59 was in production from 1970-80, so it's somewhere between 27-37 years old. Only failures (2) I ever had were due to weak mag springs, and those mags are now retired.

    It's my BUG. When I save enough money, I'll buy a smaller BUG and relegate it to the car gun, which is what I also use it for now. I really like this gun. After the first DA shot, it's a hair trigger. As soon as my front site lines up on target, I think about pulling the trigger and it fires. Easy to be accurate with this one.

    Didn't shoot it for 20 years, but now I've seen the light. It backs up my XD when I carry two.

    I carry a Colt 1911 govrnment that is a 1936 commercial version fairly regularly. That would make it 71 years young.

    In the winter I return to wheelgun carry. I will sometimes carry my S&W 38-44 HD. It was born in 1955 (as I recall).

    Ah yes - pics - well here is my - I think - oldest carry option, the Sistema ..... all original except for grips and the Chip trigger (which can easily be removed to reinstall the original).

    I carried a black powder revolver when I was 18. No CCW, but it did duty for the home and whenever I drove across 3 or more counties (legal in TX). It was a Colt Navy 18--. Probably a replica, but I didn't know nothing at the time and there was no internet.

    I just today got my fist holster to begin carrying ( atleast this winter) my S&W 64-3 38 special. It was born in 1980. Ok, not a black powder, but still 27 years old.
