    My parents just received a small collection of flintlock pistols that were collected by a family member and passed them down to my stepfather. They are said to have come form French or Great Britain but there is no certainty to that nor any documentation to confirm. I have taken a few group...

    What do you guys think about the value of this rifle? It's of course been modified for hunting. I would like to sell it, even though I think the historicity of it is pretty badass.
