Thanks for all the info...... is this really a circa 1907 gun as that link suggests? What is considered hot and not for this weapon? If it is really a hundred years old I probably will not be shooting it anyways. Thanks so far!
for what it's worth, some people still hunt with civil war era muzzle loaders, not exactly how I would treat a 150 year old war relic but assuming that they have been properly stored and maintained most military firearms can last a VERY long time in operating condition.
