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.

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.

Absolutely, what’s your email?

My mom and aunt voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012. Voted Trump in 2016. Some of the shit they've said about the treatment of ACB the past week has solidified the fact they're voting straight R ticket this year. :rofl:

If you are a white conservative woman, you are subhuman to the left. But remember #believeallwomen and #yesallwomen

Background check took 8 days to clear to allow me to bring home this weapon of war (it's a black rifle after all). Squirrels about to go down hard!

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.

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.

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.

From what I read the Honey Badger paperwork didn’t get done on the company side and the ATF ruled against them. Also hearing rumors that the issue is being remedied right now.
