Has to be my Mosin Nagant. First firearm, had it for 5 years now but it is also the oldest in and of itself as well.
I've got a little Browning semi-auto .22 that my Dad bought in the 1940's, that's the oldest gun I own. The gun I've personally owned the longest is a Ruger 77, in 30/06, that I bought new in 1975.

oldest working gun is a 1871 Vitali 10.4mm patched ball. often today refereed to as a 10.4 x 38 (or 42).
its value is in the owners eye, though it has been re-arsenaled. fairly accurate, 4 moa
it may be better but i go with light loads, 1450 fps with 40 S&W bullets.
my dies are about as sophisticated as the old Lee Loader in a box--bring your own hammer

Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine

The oldest purchase would have to be my husband's Marlin 60, purchased in the mid-70's.
The oldest gun is probably the JC Higgins bolt-action 20ga shotgun I just purchased a few months ago - no serial number, so it's a mid-60's gun, most likely.
Mossberg 22b made 1936-1950. Awesome old 22 tube feed .You could use 22 shorts and 22 longs. I've had my 22 rife for 48 years.It's new compared to other posts.I am not a fan of
black powder shooting or lever action rifles.
I have my dad's 22's- a High Standard mod GB 22 pistol- shipped from the factory on June 23,1949 (the day before I was born ) and a Winchester model 74 22 semi auto rifle manufactured in 1941. Both still shoot great.
