Like I said, the hired help took it to his little ranch he's got here in the states to hang above the fireplace or wherever.
He found it about 200 yards north of the border, so undoubtedly it was brought across the border from the little village and dropped by an illegal. Who knows how long ago though.

I'm more interested in seeing what model and how old it is. From the pics (I haven't seen it in person yet), it looks too old to operate and I really doubt the local BATFE office 2 hours away would be interested. If it's taking them 9-10 months to process my tax stamps as of late, they should have better things to be doing. Worse comes to worse, I'll call up my buddy over there and see what he thinks.

If it is older than 1899, it wouldn't fall under 1934 NFA regs.

Maybe he'll let me clean it up for him and see if I can determine any marks on it.

But no one on here can identify this?

Breech load, open hammer, with the breech lock above the hammer (seems odd to me).

The only way any LEO would care about that rusty POS is if you used it as a club to rob someone.
As bad as it looks, it's debatable whether or not it would even be classified as a firearm anymore.

Ask around at a local museum. they may know someone that could date it.
As an LEO, I'm agreeing with you on this one.

Too bad we don't have any local firearm museums.

I second this. When my grandfather passed, my relatives found a lot of really old ammunition in his workshop. In an attempt to do the right thing and dispose of it properly, they contacted the LEOs. LEOs called the BATFE. That did not go so well. I'll leave it at that.

Gaaa! You gave away ammo?!

BATFE can't do much about ammo, unless there were some DD's (destructive device = hand grenade, 40mm projectile, etc). BATFE can't even regulate how much ammo you buy or stockpile.

Wait for the next gun buy back program and turn it in. Might as well get paid for it.

I didn't. Family did. It was stored in the back of his workshop, and there had been a leak in the roof. They said there was corrosion on just about every case.

Me, I say that is what revolvers are for. Shoot the questionable ammo out of the revolvers, they can take it.

BATFE can't do much at all in this case, but it didn't stop them from trying. They harassed the hell out of my family.

Actually AOWs do need a tax stamp. Just a point of fact.

As for that old sawed off? I'd recommend taking a torch to it and cut it into a dozen pieces.

A guys walks into a gun store...

and walks out with a Ruger Redhawk .44 Mag for $600 OTD. It's good to have friends who own gun shops

It even came with the scope rings. Now I just have to find some ammo.

Picked it up last weekend. 308 Remington 700 SPS tactical. Had the Nikon 5-20/40 mounted on cheap rings and rails. Yesterday went and got new rail and rings and Harris bipod. Love it. Gonna change out the stock soon I think
