Not exactly a SMG topic ... But I found this interesting. A woman in her 90's was going to throw away these "old guns" that belonged to her late husband ... My son identified them for the owner in his shop today ... The Bottom rifle is a Meriden Arms .22 ... The top carbine is a Palmer civil war breech loader chambered in 56-50 Spencer ... It was actually the army's first bolt action rifle ... The value of the gun is in the $2000 - $4000 range ... And she was just going to toss them in the trash. Good thing someone asked.
Makes on wonder just what is still lurking in attics and closets ...
