Anne, you mentioned waiting several years for the gun to attain "antique" status. You should also know that with firearms the government has a legal timeframe for guns to be classified as antique. That date is 1898. Any gun manufactured after that date is subject to all of the current laws at the federal level (and whatever state you are in). You should look into the laws before you attempt to sell the gun.

I understand your timeframe for antique status, but wanted to be sure that you understood there is a terminology for guns that applies here also.

Good luck with your gun. It looks like a nice gun to shoot if a good smith deems it safe. I'm sure you could find a buyer if it is.
