I'm trying to find the age and value of my grandfather's I'm guessing he got it in the 60s or earlier. It is in fair condition:. The serial number identifies it as a production Carbine. The value is based on the graded condition. If you can send me clear pictures of it, I can assess the condition and value.
Good morning, hope I'm doing this right as this is the 2nd time I've used Imgur. I dabble in stereo equipment and records and people tend to overrate the conditions of their items. I said it is in fair condition and that might be a stretch.
My grandparents were dirt poor and lived in the mountains of western NC and hunted black bear so I'm sure this gun was used and not meant for a trophy case. I notice that I can't cock the lever is that because there is no bullets in the chamber? My aunt who recently passed said it was working. It certain got used. What about the lever not working.. Have you ever opened it before? Are you certain there's not a shell in the chamber? Not saying that has anything to do with action being seized, but wanted to voice a "Safety First" statement.
The lever should cycle regardless of it having a shell in it or not. There are other folks on the forum that may be able to weigh in on the mechanics of the action and why it may not be opening. Until you get it open, treat it as if its loaded.
I'm somewhat handy and might try opening it up which I've never done. I'm almost 64 and shot it as a kid but that was a loooong time ago.
I did notice no safety on it … guess OSHA wasn't around in the 40s when the gun was made. Thx, Use a cleaning rod and shove it down the barrel, when it bottoms put your finger on it where it comes out at the muzzle, pull it out and lay it over the barrel, the end should be at the face of the breech, if not there is something in it! Do not bump the hammer, point the gun in a safe direction, and assume the gun is loaded until proven otherwise.
