Default Grampa's guns

Ok guys, and gals, since we have the new gun safe, I just got the "family" guns from my dad. 3 rifles and 1 shotty. I don't know if any of them have any value, other than family history. Does anyone have any thoughts?

The Ithaca dbl bbl, (SN:241***) he found when he was a teen, out in the woods behind his house, in the snow.

The Stevens-Savage 30-30 (Model 325-C, no SN) and the 35 Remington (GameMaster Model 141, SN: 290**) were my grandfather's, and dad's, deer rifles. The recoil pad is on the 35 to make it longer. The rifle was too short for my dad.

The Winchester .22 (Model 02, no SN) was my dad's from when he was a kid. It is surprisingly accurate for such a small rifle.

I'm clueless as to values and scarcity or whatever, but you have a very nice piece of family history there. I'm glad you have them as I know they will be well cared for.

I love to see old guns being passed down thru families. I can't tell you if they have any value but I wouldn't get rid of them.

I have never seen a rifle chambered for .22 "extra long". Did they call the .22 long rifle the "extra long" when first introduced? That may help date the rifle. It might be a very early model and very valuable because of the markings.

The rest, very nice indeed.

Check out this page, it may help with the Ithaca:

Double Barreled Shotguns, High Grade Shotgun dates of production doublegunshop.com - shotgun gun firearm SxS Side-by-side

With just the limited info given it may be from 1912 or so. A Flues model with Damascus steel barrels. If you shoot it use reduced loads in it.

Wow, thanks, I don't think that I would shoot it without getting it checked first. I know that my dad has shot it in the past, but there is some light pitting up near the stock and I wouldn't want to risk it. I did look at some of the serial number lists but I had no idea what model it is.

Robo, I'm not sure. I don't think that the long and extra long were the same because it mentions both on the barrel markings. I think it may have been made between 1920 and 1930. I found a little info on the web, but not much.
