Rick,

It wasn’t worth the $1,500.  That rifle has been refinished (blued) and the stocks sanded and refinished. Originally, it was case color finished.

I don’t disagree Clarence. I was wondering for s- – t’s & giggles what others thought about him hitting the coin after his 3rd shot when the first two shots were so far off target & no apparent adjustments.

Rick,  Read these comments from the Krag Collectors Ass’n about Pawn Stars “firearms expert,” who represents the IMA co. :

“Their presence on “Pawn Stars“, as an ultimate firearms authority, is often laughable.
When I know anything about a subject they are commenting on, ….. well …. as my Mother would say, “They are full of hops”.

Today, I received an IMA listing for a $3,000 model 1892 Krag. They claim it has an unaltered stock and rod. There may be some good parts, but, the receiver is ‘notched’ and the bolt mechanism is all model 1896 or 1898.
(I am not that knowledgeable regarding model 1892 Krags. It seems there are all kinds of red flags on this one and not some of the pictures, one needs to see).

I don’t trust IMA!”

Total BS is putting it lightly.  I know a few people that have been on Pawn Stars.  They ask someone that has a gun to let someone bring it in and then the owner is brought in as the expert.  All for TV.

What a crock of crap.  These guys and their professional gun experts are embarrassing.  They’re  just making themselves look like fools.
