To keep with the previous trend. What is the oldest gun you own, that you don't shoot? Mine is the first post.

    I own a flintlock pistol [1811 on the Miquel lock plate]. With a crest of the Hapsberg Empire on the handle.

      I have an old Browning A5 Shotgun that is the oldest shotgun I own. the oldest rifle, I am not sure how to check the age but I have a 30-40 Kraig, and a couple old German Mausers that my Grandfather picked up in WWII. Again I am not sure which is older but both are really cool, functional guns. I also have an old Trap door 45/70 that is not functional but has a cool story behind it.

        Is that anything like the Habsburg empire?

            I have a flintlock rifle that was made in 1776 that has a lot of history behind it that has been passed down through the family and luckily has stayed intact and great condition.

                My great-grandfather's beat-up Italian-made (an obscure brand) double. It has exposed hammers, a straight stock and damascus barrels. In true european fashion, it was made for a sling. It was headed for the trash. I really believe it was my great-great's gun, because the great mostly used a Parker his son had bought for him. Despite the many pheasants in NY at the time; the old timers really loved shooting rabbits the most.

                  IND_NRA, interesting indeed!

                  The "oldest" I have is my dbl gun given to me by a great uncle. I have some other pieces that are pretty old. Believe it was built in the 30's.

                    I have an Astra pistol that I believe is pre WW II that I have never shot, only because I'm not sure if it's safe. My oldest rifle is from 1952 but I shoot it quite often.

                          The oldest gun we own is a jc higgens model 60 shotgun. It is about 60 years old. We do still shoot it, but it had feeding issues.
