Hello, new member here trying to learn a little about a riffle that was given to me. It is a Connecticut Valley Arms Inc. Hawken .54 cal. SPAIN. Serial # 396780. The number 86 precedes the serial #. Is this the year it was manufactured? I believe this was possibly a kit purchased in the late 80's. It has never been fired and has been hanging on a wall since at least 1989. I contemplating learning how to load/shoot this with the proper guidance & supervision. If I'm only going to shoot it a few times would I be better off not firing it and letting it possibly increase in value. Thanks in advance.
