My dad has a ton of firearm value books and history books. I can ask him.Anyone know where I can take an antique gun to get appraised/learn more about it?
I received it from my grandma when she passed. It was her fathers who was a fur trapper along the des plains river. It’s from the late 1800s. I don’t know much about guns, but the story around it is pretty cool. My family used to own all the land where the giant UPS plant is in Hodgkins but he lost all the land gambling with the railroad (so the story goes anyways).
Even if it’s not worth anything, I’d like to get it cleaned up and display it. Growing up my grandma had it sitting alongside her big brick fireplace.

Absolutely, what’s your email?My dad has a ton of firearm value books and history books. I can ask him.
Do me a favor, can you email me the original photos so they’re the best quality for looking at the stamping marks? Whether uploaded to the site via the “attach files” or “images” they still get compressed and lose detail. Though the “images” hosting site does do a decent job compared to others.
Had I known we needed a background check and waiting period, I would have just bought it in Wisconsin! I had no idea until the dude at Cabela's asked for my FOID.I bought a Gamo SilentCat up in Hayward, out of TruValue for $120 in 2015 or so. Walked in and out. They didn't give a fuuuuuuuuuuck I was from IL.
Supposedly it’s being looked into why the ATF decided that.... Hoping ACB gets put on the SCOTUS and these assholes start taking on some 2A cases finally.Not gunna lie. Besides the price, I was waffling HARD on a real Q Honey Badger. Guess what the ATF decided to do two weeks ago?
Classify it and its brace as an SBR.
