Thanks for your comment...I appreciate it. Trouble is, I have a whole safe full of "jewels" from my father. Many of his rifles and handguns I use regularly and plan to for the rest of my life. Realistically, the two target rifles referred to in this thread will probably never be fired again by me or my brother. We understand their value to collectors and feel now that parting with them might just be the "right" thing to do. Who knows, maybe the funds that we attain from their sale could help us go on a dream hunt together where we reminiss about the "ol man", his passion for the shooting sports, and all that he taught us growing up. I think he would like that.

There's a web site i used to go to years ago. I believe it was i'll have to check, but anyway you run the serial # of old Winchester and Remingtons. Might be worth checking out.

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply anything, I am sure if someone buys them they will stay in good hands and continue your dad's shooting. Leaving them in the safe wouldn't be doing justice to them. They are collectors items but like all great firearms they should be enjoyed safely. I understand exactly what you are saying and if you and your brother go on a nice hunt I'm sure your dad would be watching you have fun. I think that's all that matters, I know the only thing that matters when I'm not here is that my kids are happy and enjoying their lives in any way that's good.
