My oldest gun is a Springfield M1, correct grade from cmp. It looks pretty good, better that any other I've seen at local gun shows, and shoots well too. You gotta love the PTING sound when the clip ejects. My next oldest gun is a Winchester Centennial '66 that belonged to my gradfather. He bought it and put it up. Its still in the box and never been cycled. All the rest of my collection are relatively new compared to these two rifles.
