As the title states. My dad just passed to me some guns, and one of them is a Winchester 1887 lever action 12 gauge. I just got it today, and only have been able (time) to do some cursory internet searching. It is in great shape. So, if you are in the know, impart some wisdom to me. History, value (I'll never sell it- which is why he gave it to me, instead of my brother...), can modern loads be run through it, etc. Photos to come later.
