As I am getting a bit long in the tooth myself and seem to have developed a fondness for shall we say vintage firearms I was just curious. How old does a gun have to be for this status? I have a remington model 14 in 30 rem that is 101 years old and just refuses to act it’s age and just continues to hunt hard and kills with deadly precision. I also have a MS 1905 that will turn 100 next year that I just recently returned to the field. By comparison my 303 Jungle Carbine is a spry 76 years old but added to the larder last year. I am not a collector but a hunter who enjoys using these fine crafted arms for their intended purpose despite the challenges they entail. As you might imagine I have to reload as some of their calibers are no longer commercially loaded. Good shooting and good hunting.
