Sometimes I come across a big old abandoned building in the woods,

but I don't know if any of them were schools, originally...

...how would you tell?

And comming in a few weeks a 1906 manufacture Colt 1892 Revolver in .41 Long Colt.

I think I might qualify.
That is some good Sh!t right there!! The only rifle I don't care for on your list is the '94. They are just to small and the length of pull is to short, for me that is. I had a 1964 that was in poor shape that I gave new life to and sold some years ago.

Thanks! Not the old ones. My gun has a 24" barrel and a rather long stock, not a carbine... I don't have a good picture handy but it looks like this one:
