I have my mom's '74. I believe it was made in 1941. How does yours shoot?

Me and the boy loaded up several guns we haven't shot yet this afternoon.

The little 74 shot great, failed to go into battery on the 2nd shot, but then ran off around 150 rounds flawlessly.

Probably needs stripped down and deep cleaned, it will definitely get shot a lot more this year.

It bounces pop cans and golf balls around the range effortlessly!
