Very happy to be the new owner of this little SRC gem. It will be proudly displayed beside a few other special pieces.
Thank you to Bert & Michael for your help on this one. Also has BATF clearance letter.

Lovely gun ! Will it be shot or displayed ? 
would it be in bad taste to ask what price bracket it was in ?

id be very proud if it was mine

Thanks guys.

It might get a round or two through it. Has an excellent shiny bore & rifling. Want to keep it that way.
I’ve seen similar ones sell for $12-$15k U.S at premier auctions, & sometimes more, but it’s not going anywhere for a while.

Rick,

That is a very nice 14″ Trapper. You rarely see them in that condition.

Thanks for posting pictures of it.

It is NEVER in bad taste to ask what someone paid for a firearm, and I wish others would regularly disclose this information down to the penny.  Folks get so hung up about money for some reason.

Besides the general consensus will be one of three things.  You got a bargain, you did fine, neither paying too much nor too little, or you overpaid.  What’s the problem?

Besides, so many firearms are sold through internet venues, either through a dealer or on auction sites where the hammer price is publicly revealed, often from more than a decade ago, that you might think it’s a big secret, but it isn’t.

This way some newbie out there can better gauge at what price firearms actually exchange at instead of perhaps thinking the la la land of Gunbroker or Rock Island Auction might actually be the real world.
