I just inherited 3 of these and a colt 32, and a bunch of shotguns reloading stuff, anyways from what I am reading these should not be shot? Just collected?
Correct. While yhe older guns are still plenty tough, you never know what shot might cause a breakage. Sure with a new gun it's no issue. But a collectors piece....I'd cry if I broke one, especially if there's family value on top of monetary value.
If they have been reblued or have any modifications they are nothing more than shooters grade. Worth would be around $600. If they are untouched and all original they can go for $3,000 up if they are in excellent shape. Good luck.
