A member brought this out to my gun club yesterday. He inherited the gun a few years ago. It has been in his family since at least WWII. He's pretty sure his grandfather brought it back from the war.
He wanted to get a good ball park price for insurance. He has no desire to ever part with the gun. It has a few minor issues with it. The front trigger will not fire. I feels like it has a broken spring inside. The toe on the butt stock is missing a small piece as well as a piece of the horn butt plate. The rear screw on the horn trigger guard is not correct either.
Would appreciate any inormation on the different proof marks and the numbers stamped in the bottom rib. The top rib is blank. I would assume this is where a maker's name should be, which leads me to believe it was a guild gun.
Bluing is about 80% and the receiver has a lot of case color remaining as can be seen in the photos.
Thanks in advance.
