Make or Model

Just like a car, the make or model of the firearm you purchase is a determining factor on how much it is actually worth. A Winchester or Colt firearm is most likely going to be valued higher than similar style antique guns. This is mainly due to historic relevance and brand name appeal. Winchester and Colt made many firearms that are now considered antique guns and their names are famous in the collecting community. Some gun enthusiasts prefer to have one or two makes or models of firearms, but you can build your firearm collection anyway you choose. You can specify what kinds of guns you like by era, war, or even country. Find a gun you think is interesting or unique and start out by collecting one or two of that variety. This will give you a focus to start your collection off and you can continue to buy more from there.

The name antique keeps being longer in the past according to the BATF (1898) I prefer VINTAGE Fire arms which are models that are no longer made. My Remington 141 made in 1937 is a good example. The slide / pump action and the .35 Remington makes a nice deer gun that is so precisely made that can be taken down into 2 pieces. I have put modern sights on mine but have all the parts to bring it back to original. I do not think that I would want to fire a per 1898 Antique.

Another example is a revolver that left the S&W factory in January 1917 is this Heavy Frame Target (22/32) in 22 long rifle. It was made before we got into WW1.
