Merry Christmas,

Supposedly this little 32 WCF SRC with SN 122659 was owned by the Mexican general Padilla.  But I find it surprising that when it was sold back in January of 2020 out of Goodletsville, TN the seller then didn’t know about it!!!  And the scabbards were not included in that sale!  https://www.gunbroker.com/Item/962701914    And all that history can be yours for a mere $15,000 pesos!  I especially like the story in the listing description about the gun was owned by a girl someone dated.  They missed out on the deal clincher of then having to need to cover some medical expenses!   Maybe I am just a bit too skeptical.

Michael – But,its one of “the best of the best”. I think 15 thousand pecos is about the right price for this gun – it is a early, hard to find 92 SRC – 15 thousand pecos is about $750 (american dollars) and I believe someone that wants an interesting wall hanger would be willing to pay that. Now, 15 grand, U.S. cash, is probably a little steep.

I totally agree that the 15,000 pesos would be about right.  But he is asking for payment in U.S Dollars!  He has quite the imagination!
