Just asking...I'm not even in the running since I have a post-ban. But still, who's got the oldest???

My Colt SP1 was made in 71 or 72 I think.

My Reserve unit. A training gun, Armalite, with a 4 digit SN. Built in '59, I think.

I own a 98% Colt SP-1 manufactured in 1965, serial # 147*. She's beautiful, definitely built when they cared about what they were doing.

I've got an old Colt AR-15 blackpowder rifle from 1885 that used to be used by the navy...it's a .41 caliber. I have a 30-round magazine that holds 72-grain lead balls and only rattles a bit when running. It even has a the original "full auto" setting...which is an experience! Your arms get damn tired trying to ram patches, balls, and powder down that sucker at 5 rounds per second! People think I'm crazy, but I still use it for home defense. Yeah, yeah, I know what you're thinking...a 35-inch barrel isn't necessarily maneuverable indoors, but I used the retractable stock to shorten it a bit. TRAINING, TRAINING, TRAINING! It's fun.
