Delete “from the personal collection of Leroy Merz” and substitute “as recently purchased by Collecting Texas from the Leroy Merz web site”. Leroy does have a fantastic personal collection but this gun would not even come close to meeting the standards of inclusion.

AHH And so this comes full circle about provenance. Also the parallel sirations on the top of the barrel would hint at a reblue.

Higher prices than Leroy???  If he succeeds, he’ll be automatically inducted into the Rip-Off Hall of Fame.
