I have been doing some looking around and there are many 1886 rifles out there that are selling for north of $2000 (some are well
north of that). Nice. Not gonna sell it though, I'm going to bring it in to the gunsmith to have it checked out thoroughly to see if it would be safe to shoot and then if it is make some handloads for it and shoot it!
A 45/70 was on my bucket list. I think I will put an original Revolutionary War musket in its place on the list now
