What is the oldest gun in your collection?

Going through my gun locker today I came across my old H&R top break "Premier Auto Ejecting" .38S&W (black powder) nickle plated revolver. Dated it today and found out she was made in 1902....what is your oldest piece?

I also have a Remington model 11 semi auto and a Remington model 31 pump. The 31 was made in the late 30's and is an awesome pump shotgun. It was the predecessor to the 870. But unlike the 870 was not an any part form any gun fits. each 31 was fitted together by a gunsmith.
Remington started making 870's because the 31 cost to much to build. 70 years old and still works like new.

My Grandfather quit shooting about a year ago (due to his age) and he has passed on his collection to us. My Dad came by last night and gave me my Grandfather's Belguim made Browing "Sweet Sixteen" humpback semi-auto shotgun. I believe it is a late 50's production, and other than the worn bluing it is in near perfect condition. He also gave me a J frame S&W .357 Magnum that he used to use for competition.

These have huge sentimental value, and will always stay in the family. My Grandfather was the man responsible for my gun addiction, as well as teaching me how to be a marksman. That helped out alot when it came time in the USMC. Thanks Papa!

Earlier this year I asked my Grandfather to go to the range with us (he never passed up an opportunity), but he said that while his health would allow him to, he dosen't trust his ever shortening memory. It almost made me cry.

These two pieces will get good use and TLC for many years to come.

1878 Remington Rolling Block, Sporting Model, .44-77, passed down through several generations to my father, then to me since bought new in 1879. It used black powder cartridges and I have never fired it. My ancestors used this for Bison hunting according to my Dad.
