Antiques Roadshow FYI

I'm sure plenty of antique tackle makes it to the hall. It just does't get on the show, like 99% of the stuff that people bring. Unless you have a lure carved and signed by Abraham Lincoln, I doubt it's getting on the show.

I have an old antique musket I'd like to get appraised, at least from the late 1700's,

 

nice, that must be something to see. i would like to bring a lever action winchester 1901 10 gauge shotgun i like how they tell you all about the guns they appraise. i really have no idea if there is any value in the gun.

Remember, you're in Ma. You'll have to get a trigger lock for that gun first. :rolleyes:

good luck with it, I brought my flintlock to a local gun shop, he's going to do a full appraisel for me for 25$ and if I'm interested in selling it he said he could find a buyer for me, when I showed it to him he said it's at least from the early 1800's, has has all the proof markings on it, let you know how I make out,

I think i can have it in a locked gun case without a trigger lock. Is this correct?

 

also trigger locks on a lever action really do not work well

Yeah, that's is fine. Trigger lock is if you are storing it outside of a gun safe.

For lever actions get a cable lock and wrap it twice around the stock and thru the lever after verifying the gun is unloaded. This locks the action closed and renders the gun inoperable.

I was just trying to be a smart a$$ concerning Ma gun laws. ;)

You mean "reading". If you are listening to SOL, you're doing it wrong.
