They told her if she wanted to get rid of it, have a gunsmith restore it & sell it for her, it would be worth a hell of a lot more than the $100 gift card she would've got.
I remember readin about one guy in Florida brought in an old Jap rifle he traded for in WWII.
He traded it in and got a $50 Target gift card.
Turns out, it was a pressure test rifle.
Only 100 were made, and only a handful are left.
Locals tried to persuade the police to return the rare piece, and save it from destruction. After two months, they returned the rifle, and let him keep the card. I remember seein it, cause someone online wound up buyin it from the guy.

I love cool old military stuff. I have an SKS, a Mosin Nagant and have traded a bunch of other stuff. This will fit in very nicely. I will probably pick up a Nagant revolver and maybe a P-38. There is much more collectable stuff out there. But I like collecting stuff that I am not afraid of ruining the value by shooting. I wont own a gun that I don't shoot. The Law is different. It is just a conversation piece. And a $2 piece at that.

I too have one. Still in the original OD Green color, but I have misplaced the end caps. I can post pictures if necessary.
