So last night I was in the basement at my Mother In-laws helping her with some stuff and happened to see a dusty handgun laying on the shelf. I picked it up and said "Hey what's this?". She said "I don't know, I think it's that old bb gun". I looked at it and said "No, it's a Colt 22, a real gun". She said "Do you want it? Take it, I'm afraid of guns". "Are you sure??" I said. "Ya it's been there for years".
It had no clip so I looked a little harder and found it. I then came home a did a quick google and judging by the clip release (behind the trigger) and serial number it appears to be a 2nd generation Woodsman Match Target made in 1950. It is in excellent condition, just needs a good cleaning. The clip doesn't seem to want to stay in tightly but when you push the button it does eject it firmly. Any thoughts?
So, any of you guys have any experience with this little gem? From what little I read it's an old classic and worth around 1000 bucks depending on condition. But, that's just what I saw some selling for online. I really don't know. Doesn't matter though. It's not for sale. I think I'll clean it up and go shoot it.
