Rifle Identification Help / Advice... Model 14 Rem and 1924 Mauser CXC
So, my father gave me three "items" over the weekend as follows:
TOP: Remington 870 tactical w/ blackhawk stock (no questions, just happens to be there and makes me happy )
MIDDLE: Remington Model 14 in .32 cal (I believe this is a carbine?)
--> Questions: I am planning on using this gun for deer hunting and would like to know what options I have for improving sight/accuracy without altering the gun or affecting its value (like attaching a scope)? Should I just leave the open sights alone ? and... what can I do cleaning / polishing wise that wont affect the guns worth as well ???
BOTTOM: here is the main reason im posting, I did some research online and came up with the following info: this is a Model 1924 Mauser CXC with the following stamp on the side: Fab. Nat. D'Armes de Guerre Herstal-Belgique which I believ means it was made at the FN factory in Belgium. CXC stands for Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. Serial number A36059 ... Here are the rest of the pics from this rifle:
Anyone have any idea on the value of this gun or just any more info on it whatsoever? Thank you! - Chris

The remmy model 14 was a favorate of mine that I never was able to own. A buddy had several of them. Interesting design for the tube mag in that you can use spitzer pointed bullets in a tube. The bullets curles around the prinmer as round were fires and never did you have primer to bullet nose.
They competed with the lever rifle f the day just could not sell as many. but was around for 30 years or better. Yea leave the sight be as is. If you still have good eye site they have a fine set set of open sights with in the cartidges design
Ammo - Hope you reload?? Ammo is hard to find, mostly old and costly.
You could do the same thang the 32remmy can do with a rifled slug barrel for that 870 and maybe better and father with a cantilevered barrel a scope and a sabot slug like hornady's sst slugs. Good for 200 yards.
