Liberals, avert your eyes - I'm gonna be talking about guns.

My dad recently passed away, and I inherited his 1957 Winchester Model 94. It was purchased new in 1958 for the frightening sum of $79.95 along with two boxes of ammo (which he still had). This gun has never had a round chambered, and as you might guess, is in "like new" condition. Along with the rifle, I got the original store receipt (from Sears), as well as some correspondence when a list of service parts was requested, along with the returned exploded drawing of the rifle, and the service parts list (and cost). The exploded view and parts list are printed on glossy paper stock and is dated, July 1 1956.

I want to go out and shoot the rifle, but it's essentially a 60-year-old virgin, and doing so would immediately degrade the exceptional value of the gun. However, just in case I succumb to the urge, I ordered a Williams peep sight. It bolts to the gun through existing holes in the receiver, so at least I won't be drilling into anything to mount it.

You can never have too much ammo - unless you're swimming, or on fire. - JSOP, 2010

When you pry the gun from my cold dead hands, be careful - the barrel will be very hot. - JSOP, 2013
