I have long been interested in antique rifles, but have never owned a real one.  After a couple of near misses on GB auctions, I thought I better learn more about what I was trying to buy.  The more I learned, the more I realized I didn’t know anything.  Originally just wanted a mantle sitter, still do.  Didn’t want to make mistakes though. Any ideas on what to look for that I am proud of, but won’t lose sleep over someone walking off with it?

Sorry in advance for other stupid questions,Embarassed

Welcome to the site . Just read thru the forum, and the Magazine archives, and soon you will be hooked too. It doesn’t seem anyone can stop with just 1. (or just 1 Model ) Maybe you will be the first with the willpower ?

Welcome to our obsession olviking.  If what you are looking for right now is a mantle sitter, you can’t go wrong.  Just get what strikes your fancy, within your budget, and nature will take its own course from there.
