Re: colt single action army
Thanks for your answers. Well thought out.
I'll see about a picture, but don't know if it will do any good. Pretty hard to get a picture good enough to spot a renickle and that's my main concern now that you've cleared up the barrel length.
The finish is good for a modern gun. The finish is great if it's 110 years old. If the finish is original the gun wasn't used. An odd item is the cylinder pin. It has marks on it like it had been pulled by pliers.
He wants $5000.00 for it. It seems to my uneducated mind that if it's real that's low.
I won't be buying it. It just doesn't feel right. I think the pawn shop owner believes it's real however. I don't know where he got it. But no providence and even if an "expert" said it was real somewhere down the line when I decided it had appreciated enough I would sell it and I'd have to get another expert that might have a different opinion. Poor risk.
