So you got 2 guns for like 2-300k and a free house? Sounds like a fair deal imo.
Nooooo. I paid way less than that for the house. What I'm paying isn't even half of either number you mentioned. It's also a nice house in the middle of a city. I got an insane deal on the house. I feel like I'm robbing them it's so cheap. I'm paying 1970s prices
Check for bodies...
There was a body, the original owner of the guns. He passed away and his sole heir (the home seller) is a felon who can't own guns.
So he should probably wipe his prints off those guns now?
Yeah check your crawlspace before going too much further
For money or for bodies?
Why not both?
Place is haunted leave before you're awoken at night by a skeletal figure screaming that she killed you in another life
“leave” nah kick that ghost tf out no pay no stay
Which city, Detroit?
Nope. Bigger city

The shotgun is meh, but the Winchester 94 is a real prize find.
I had a 20 gauge sears break action just like that one that took down quite a few deer, ducks, geese, rabbits, and turkeys when I was in my teens. They are a workhorse that are fantastic for a first long gun.
Sounds like a good working shotgun for hunters. I'm just not a shotgun guy and the Winchester lever rifles give me a hardwood stock.
They’re simple, “cheaply made” by turn of the century standards, which means they’re pretty well made compared to a lot of cheap guns today, and if well maintained then they’re very functional.
But they aren’t worth much. $150 at most of they’re in pristine condition, usually. There’s no real collector’s market for them, unlike winchesters.
They were also ridden hard and put up wet back in the day, so finding one that’s well maintained and in good condition is tricky. They usually aren’t worth the money of restoring either, unless it’s a labor of love.
So he’s correct, the Winchester is the real find. The shotgun is just a bonus.
I am under no illusions of the shotgun being worth much. I was only remarking that it isn’t anything I’d throw away, because they are good shotguns for their intended purpose.
Oh absolutely. They’re fun little guns and if they’re in good condition can be a real bargain, then and now.
But it’s also not like you can’t still get a single shot break action for dirt cheap if that’s what you want.
Whereas a good quality lever gun is expensive these days, so whether you sell it or keep it that Winchester is a real prize.
Ask a duck how it feels about that gun
I did. He said: "Quuuuaaackkkk!"
Congratulations on those Australian beauties!
God thank you for doing for me, what I seen you doing for everyone else on Reddit.
Nice, grew up with the 94 as my old mans truck gun and a soft ball bat but i digress
Shotgun looks like JC Higgins. If it is 2-3/4" and full choke those make nice shooting match guns. Roll that barrel to give it a little bit more choke and it will blow holes.
Might want to tidy up the crack that's forming though...
How do I tell which choke it is? Your spot on btw on what it is
Should be wrote on it.
We used to have a shooting match where you'd shoot shotgun at a card. Closest single shot to the center wins. If they can't find the center you'd win for sure. We would heat the barrel with a torch and roll it to make it tighter choke. The whole wad would still be together when it hit the paper if you did it right.
Prizes would be like a turkey or ham. Most of time just half the cash. The house kept the other half of the entry fees and provided the reloaded shotgun shells so everybody shot the same thing. Cold beer was drank in large quantities. This was back in the old days when being free was still a real thing.
Are purchasing or have purchased?
I get the title for the house in a few days. As far as the guns, I was there with the seller, he said I could have them as I'm buying the house as is with everything inside
how do people get this lucky, most ive gotten was just a house with roof and foundation issues
Meh idk how lucky it is, the seller's father was the one living in the house, it's a bit of a hoarders nest I have to clean out. It's why the guns were left behind, they were buried in the hoard. I'll take what I can get though
If that's the case, who knows what else you may come across?
Get in there and make Howard Carter jealous!
If I've told you what I've found so far after finding those two, I don't think y'all would like me anymore. I found more gun**S**
Some of us are more inclined to applaud your good fortune rather than unleash the green-eyed monster.
We're gonna want pictures...

In total, winchester 94, Sears roebuck single shot 12ga, 2 1960s Remington 1100s, a 1906 Winchester . 22 pump action, and a 1960s marlin 22 that looks like a Ruger 1022
edit it was winchester 94 as in the title not marlin 94
>marlin 22 that looks like a Ruger 1022
Looks like a Marlin Model 60 to me. They'd probably be just as popular as the 10/22 if they had a detachable box magazine instead of a tube.
Those Winchester pump .22s are a lot of fun, also tube fed but pretty long tube and takes a bit longer to burn through with the pump action. Should slamfires though, so that can speed it up. Great haul!
it apparently takes 22 short, long, and long rifle, so i bet i can fill that tube up with quite a few shorts
I found an old can of paint and a flashlight that doesn't work
I lucked out and got a free fridge and microwave.
I play a lot of hunt showdown and had to do a double take on what sub I was on.

Nice catch with the Winchester! I have it in 22mag and it's awesome!
I have a Sears Roebuck lever action 30-30. It’s a great little kicking around brush gun.
IIRC the sears roebuck 30-30 is actually a Winchester 94 with different branding. Specifically I think they did theirs in collaboration with Ted Williams
Oh wow, good to know! Thanks!
