1894 38-55 info needed
I have this gun that was a Christmas gift from my mother in law back in 1986. I know that it was my wife grandfather's gun, but not sure how he came about getting it as he was in his late teens around the time I think this gun was manufactured. Could have been his father's but nobody knows.
This gun was one of only 5 guns out of about 20 that were away from the house in the early 80's when it burned down. It is going to be passed down to my daughter as it is a family heirloom. It has killed many deer in it's lifetime, but I have never shot it myself.
I am looking to update insurance on the gun if it is worth more than a tomato stake and ask what rough value it may have (I will get it appraised if worth it). I think by looking at the on line it was produced around 1895.
Thanks in advance for any help or information
