thought you might like to know- the condition of your husky shotguns indicates they were almost for sure kept in the Husqvarna factory museum in Sweeden until a few years ago. When Europe went to a common market and open borders the western european countries were flooded with refugees from the easterm european countries and emigrants from arab lands. sweeden which had not very restrictive gun laws and which had gov. sanctioned shooting clubs and matches disarmed itself to keep guns out of the hands of non sweedish emigrants. Husqvarna is still a viable industrial combine but it has nothging to do with firearms and sold off all the contents of its museum several years ago, so - your contention that your guns came from a museum is almost certainly correct.
