Win. 1886 40/82 value?
I have a '86 win. 40/82 handed down from my great grandad. I'm not interested in selling it, just curious what it is worth?
So here's the kicker.....he "customized" it long ago. I believe it would have originaly came with an octogon barrell, and full length magazine? correct?
It now has a round barrell and half-lenght magazine.
I assume this majorly affects the vallue but I'm curious to know more about it.
Also...I had a box of ammo loaded by buffalo bore. the bullets are copper plated and the original bullets i have are lead. Am i safe to shoot the copper plated ammo? No preasure complications?
