I have a question about the the barrel lenght of a rifle. I understand that it must be 16" or longer to be legal. If a rifle is an antique, does this still apply? The rifle in question is a .22, that apears to be made for a child. It is a crack barrel sigle shot. The only date on it is, I believe, is a 1908 patten date. The barrel is 15.5" and seems to be original. Any help would be appreciated. Milhouse

Antique, by F-Troop defition, is PRE-(18)98. (GCA 68). I'm not sure when the minimum length of barrels was retroactive to. You may want to (a) secure that oldie somewhere other than your residence, and (b) ask the F-troopies in the form of a "I saw this at an antique store..." question. It may qualify as a "Curio & Relic" and be eligible to be kept under that description. Tango7

Tango, Let me make myself clear. I own no such rifle!!! This question is hypothetical in nature.

Didn't mean to imply you did! [0:)] Just offering a suggestion (or two)... Some folks might buy first and post later. No 'fense meant. Tango7
