Most of the time, items are not extremely valuable as in this case. I have my grandfathers 20 ga Iver Johnson single shot. Pretty well used up. I searched for 2 years before I found a barrel from a guy in Boston. I have some pretty walnut I have been saving. My grandfather worked all summer in the logging camps of Maine in 1910 and was able to order it for $5.00 from the General Store. It has been in the family ever since. I plan to put it back in shooting shape for future generations. I'll post pics as I go along.
