It would be my Glock 22 that I bought in the 90's, sadly I had to sell my S&W M1917 that was part of the 38,000 sent to the Brazilian Military in the 1930's

Oldest rifle I own is from 1911 the oldest handgun I have is from 1971, all but two of my guns are older than me.

The oldest handgun I own is a S&W Model 17. Not terribly old though, I bought it new in 95.

Oldest firearm I have is a Winchester Model 12 that belonged to my great-grandfather.

My Jan. 16, 1970 produced S&W Model 19-3. The small screwdriver and cleaning swab were included in the box when I bought it used about 20 yrs. ago. I do not know if they were factory included, but I have treated them as if they were and haven't used them.
