She wanted to give me this.........

It belonged to the FIL when he was a lad and it appears (on quick inspection) to be solid and in good working order.

I ran the S/N, it was made in 1922.

Awesome Chris! I wish I had a MIL (or any family) that would be so kind to give me stuff like that.

Congrats on the sweet rifle.

Unfortunately, I never got to meet my MIL. She died when my wife was very little.

Now the step-MIL is another case altogether. About the only thing that I could ever inherit from her would be one of her primary means of transportation...a BROOM!

Enjoy the rifle, osprey! It's a really nice collectors piece...
