I moved your thread to the General Rifle Discussion forum.

I can tell you that the last rifle is an Enfield military rifle chambered in .303, but that's about all I know about it. Other folks here will be able to tell you much more.

If you can get some closer shots of any markings and some closer shots of the actions, it would be helpful for identification purposes..

Use the "Post Reply" on the bottom left of the last post and you'll be good to go.

The second rifle has a cut down look to it. It looks like it was a military stock that was modified to make a hunting rifle type stock. I don't have any idea about the muzzle brake.

We're really are going to need better pics to give you good info.

The first one is a Remington Model 11. It was manufactured under license from Browning in the US and with some very small changes it is a twin of the Browning A5 autoloader shotgun. Great gun but apparently grandpa was not a big stickler for cleaning or oiling.

The second gun is NOT a rifle. It is a Mossberg bolt action shotgun. A fairly inexpensive shotgun in it's day and never their most popular model. They don't have much collector value but they are decent shooters.

The third gun is a British WWII rifle, an Enfield #4.

That should get your started on your search for info. Values for all of them is in the $2-300 range each, maybe a little less because they are not in very good shape.

Wambli is dead on target. The Mossberg shotgun will be marked on the barrel- you MAY have an 85K or its cousin. Values on those are $60-$100 range, depending on condition, .410's a tad higher. The No4 Mk1 Enfield rifle may have marking on the metal band at the wrist. These were military rifles, made for the government, so do not have a brand name. Value may run $100-$250, depending on condition, how the bore looks, headspace, etc. Normally in caliber .303 British.

So shoot me a price and find a way to ship them to Iowa if they are still in working order.
