    Auction Guns ... only an elephant could carry these concealed

    There is an auction tomorrow. They have some rifles they are selling ...

    Mouser Model 1893 - if this is the one only useable as a club
    Mouser model 1900 - looked down the barrel could still grooves but corroded
    SKS bolt action - not sure
    Ball & Williams Civil War Gun - 44 long rim fire - can you buy ammo for this? I've never seen any
    Model 94 AE Winchester 30/30
    Model 511 Remington 22 single shot
    Henry Lever Action 44 Mag (w/ box)

    Tempted to buy the mouser 1900 but it was pretty ugly down the middle. Question - any way to refinish the inside of a barrel?

    The Ball & Williams - not bad shape but can you find ammo for this?

    The SKS bolt ... shrug ...

    The model 94 and hennery are newer guns and if prices are down I might by both to resell

    The old 22 - wasn't in bad shape. But wouldn't give much for it.

    The older guns were not cleaned and it would help them. The SKS - I'm not even sure the bolt was there. I couldn't figure it out and no clue age, model, just going off the bill for the auction. I guess I could buy it and next time some program offers cash for guns - take them these old guns and then go by a useable gun.

    Mauser 1893 in what caliber? The Spanish used a variation of the Mauser and it was in 7x57 mm. If so, it is a good gun, I had a sport one that was stolen. Ammo can be expensive but the 7mm cartridge is a good one.

    I don't think the SKS was ever a bolt action. I think it can be fired "bolt action" style. Perhaps it is a Mosin-Nagant 91/30 in 7.62x54r. They are definitely bolt action. I have one (Mosin) and they shoot well.

    The Winchester Model 94 30-30 would be a good choice. The Henry in 44 mag...maybe not so much.

    I got no information on the others.
