What is your oldest firearm?

My oldest firearm, which is a newborn compared to some here on this thread, is a 1947 Marlin Model 90, 12 gauge O/U...Bought it at an auction when I was 16 for $50. I've shot a lot of partridge, woodcock (ehh, ehh, ehh, he said woodcock [laugh]) and squirrels with this thing over the years...

My oldest is a 1918 produced Colt 1911, which likely saw combat in WW1, where my grandfather manned coastal batteries in France. He was lucky to avoid the trenches.

My 2nd oldest is a 1943 Colt 1911A1, from WW2.

I couldn't find a pic of the 1918 version, and I was too lazy to take it out of the safe, so here's the 1943. The slide has a serial number behind the firing pin retaining block which matches the receiver.

1893 spanish mauser, was converted to 1916 8mm after the spanish revolution. It's not the best shape, the fore stock has been removed.
