Yeah I like to keep old guns like this original but I might re blue it. So the steel lasts longer. Nothing else though.

whether you agree or disagree with what someone does with something they bought is irrelevent. it belongsto them and they are allowed to do with it as they please.

personally, i'd just keeped it oiled and cleaned though.

Haha I ran out of room in my safe and have to get another because it's too tall to fit in my safe with shelving in it. Still way worth it though. Can't wait to take it out.

For that to be a pre 1899 rifle it would have to be a first year of manufacture as that is an 1898 model. Don't tell ATF, but the dealer may have boo boo'd

Shoot the crap out if it, thats what they're made for. Then clean the crap out of it so it last another 50 or so more years. And if you do have it reblued show us some pictures. Thinking of reblueing mine. Nice gun.
