  1. The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    I have a rifle but I have no idea what it is or what it is worth. If anyone can identify it that would be very helpful. All I know about it is that it is a mauser type rifle. If more detailed pictures are needed please let me know.

    Hey guys, I just have three bolt action (I'm pretty sure bolt action) rifle barrels that I acquired from a neighbor's house. They have to be decently old, (Not antique old, but not new.) they were her brother's and he died a long time ago. I don't intend to keep them, I have no use for them but...
  4. Large-Bore/Small-Bore Rifle/Shotgun
    Hi all, I have inherited my dad’s favorite hunting rifle, a 1948 Winchester 30-30. I will be picking it up soon and would like to buy a soft case for it. Can anyone tell me how long this rifle is and what type of case would fit well?

    I am not a gun enthusiast and know very little about guns. I inherited this rifle. It has been stored in a gun bag indoors for several years and appears to be in good condition. I have never loaded nor fired it. I have never cleaned it or done anything to it. Please see photos and let me know...

    Hello - I inherited this rifle and have no idea what it is. The only words anywhere on the rifle are 'A Kohler' engraved on metal near the trigger. The bore diameter at the widest point (corner to corner) is 11/16" . Can anyone educate me on it and its value? Here are some photos. Thanks for...

    I inherited a sort of 'ranch' built in 1916 by my grandparents in Oracle AZ - a small town in the Santa Catalina Mountains above the desert and north of Tucson. I am not a gun or rifle enthusiast, but I have inherited some firearms, all old and one very old. I am hoping to find information about...

    I recently purchased this muzzleloader from a antique store for next to nothing. The guy I purchased it from said it is some sort of trade rifle. It has a octagonal to round barrel and it looks like there might be a crown above N. Ashmore. There is a aluminum band stamped with H and the letters...
  10. Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    Hi guys, Here is a peculiar example of experimental muzzle-loading percussion rifle. Unlike common muzzle-loaders, the gun has its percussion nipple in the center of its receiver end. Another distinctive feature of the gun is grip safety lever on the upper tang. We need to securely...

  13. Technical Questions & Information
    Going through my uncle's estate to catalog, and had a few of these walnut forends. This one is marked Colt, but I do not know. Had a recessed area that looks like for base metal of some sort. Any help would be appreciated as to what gun this would be for. Thanks.
  14. Large-Bore/Small-Bore Rifle/Shotgun
    Very obscure and not well know wildcat, but I'm convinced it is one of the most versatile cartridges ever created. Let me explain. Essentially you convert a 12 gauge slug gun into a big bore rifle. You do this by using a very slow rifle powder (to keep pressure low) and brass 12 gauge hulls...

    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.

    Hi all, New to this forum, saw a similar post and figured this would be a good place to ask. I was recently cleaning out my grandmother's closet (she passed years ago) and found these. I'd like to keep one and sell the other, but I have no idea their value or anything. Any help would be much...

    This is the first post of a recently inherited collection for which I'm trying to determine resale value. This rifle is by far the most interesting to me personally, as it is one of the few pieces I don't recall ever seeing from my father's collection. It appears to be some type of...

    Hi, I'm a hobbyists and an inventor. My current fascination is reloading/modifying shotshells. I have several questions to ask in regards to shotguns and using a smoothbore, single barrel, shotgun as a muzzleloader. Also, aiming firearms (handgun, rifle and shotguns) with standard iron...

    I have a .45 Sharps Rifle. I am unsure of the year, I know it has Pat dates but I don't think that's the date it was made. This has the 30" octagon barrel, double triggers. I don't believe this is a conversion. I was told it's missing the vernier sights, but other than that its in decent...
