I'm getting rid of this one from the collection. Made in 1893 FMOBCB, pistol grip checkered stock. 26" barrel. This one letters as is. Has three detractors. 1)There is a crack in the toe that comes from the lower plate screw. It can be seen on both sides. 2) Tiny chip at the corner of the forearm by the hammer on the left side. 3) There are a couple of rough spots in the blue toward the end of the barrel. The great things are that the gun looks way better in person than in the pictures. The bore is absolutely beautiful and probably an 8.5-9. The receiver still retains about 25-30% case colors. The wood is beautiful. Blue on the barrel is 90% with about 75% on the mag tube. Tang is marked 737XX. I am going to get some more pics tomorrow and put in on auction. My BIN will be 9k . I will take $8000 from a member and ship to your door.

Cool Mikec...offer it to us for $8000.00 and sell it on GB for $4800.00...makes me feel real special. Sorry, but that makes no sense to me at all. Peter

Peter,
I really don't understand the problem. I offered it here first HOPING to get 8k for the gun. I then waited a day and listed it with a BIN for 9K. I really was hoping to get way more for the gun but I am not the guy who sits on stuff if I want to sell it. I let the bidders determine the price and I LIVE WITH IT! I'm not going to sit here an relist something for six months straight at the same price. I offered it to you guys and then put it on auction for 0.01 starting bid with NO RESERVE! You had six days to get it for $4801 so if you didn't it's your problem, not mine. How in the world can you sit here and give someone crap about putting something up or an honest auction with a 3 day inspection? What did you want me to do, offer it here for $2500? If I had known the gun would go for that price I would have offered it for 4k. Wow...

Mike,

There was no problem, nor do you have to explain yourself to anyone.
