Default Cleanin out the old mans garage

I recently inherited my fathers Colt Lawman and now I just found the original box, paperwork, and receipt while cleaning out the garage to sell the house. Made my day. I cant believe he kept everything.

That was a lot more money in 1979 than it is today.

Try to imagine what finding a gun like that,

still in the box, unfired, would be like.


It wasn't a Colt, and it's only a 22, but it made

my day, and it is a family favorite.

It is awesome having the original box now. The other small orange box behind it in one of the pictures is one other I found for a star model FM 22lr pistol he had also. Also found this. Lol. Good ol hoppes in a glass bottle. Dont see that anymore.

You've got an excellent shooting gun! My grandpa had one of those and it was an excellent gun!
