    I have a gun that has a date of 1849 stamped on it. I was told by someone who has their gun license that it originally had a stock under the barrel which he felt had been removed. The gun looks good but if this is the case should I just throw it in the dump?

    wiscozac Welcome to the forums

    to be honest we'll need way more info than that to help in any real way

    do you have any photos that show what your talking about?
    are there any other markings or names on the weapon ?

    its rare to find a rifle thats only good to throw away , collectors can use some parts so even a heap of junk maybe worth $50 -100 or $20 it depends

    but until we know what the weapon is its very hard to say

    lots of different rifles marked 1849 sharps for one the austrian and later german garibaldi , M/1849

    Is the "gun" a rifle, shotgun or some type handgun?
