    Sounds like the "addict" was cleaning out grandpa.

    Interesting attitude y'all got.

    >This 14 year old stole his grandpa's gun and now you want to give him a TV or laptop for it? <

    >Sounds like the "addict" was cleaning out grandpa.<

    Or maybe it's the way I read it. Grandpa's dead. They are cleaning out his house. Found a gun in the attic.

    But, yeah, they're less than 200 new. I wouldn't give much for a used one. And it would depend greatly on which of a half-dozen or so manufacturers made it, as to whether I'd touch it.
  7. Thanks Jon just looked & seen them, & Yea I like the brass alot better also.

    LOL thats what my wife said!

    D D I just thought its a cool looking piece & if I could trade some of my old junk stashed in my 2 sheds that I never use, Well I would do it.

    Thanks Guys for your Input just talked to the guy turns out I think GRUMPY'S right----CRACK HEAD I'll pass

    I had to chuckle at the "will trade for project motorcycles, but no junk"... I guess one man's basket of parts is another man's treasure in that case. Every project motorcycle I've ever latched onto was due to the other person's finally accepting that he was never going to do anything with it...and in most people's opinion would have been junk!

    Just for the sake of discussion; two guys were arrested recently for multiple murders. They were putting an ad in the paper advertising for farm hands. The person(s) would go to meet them. They robbed, and murdered several..

    Since your guy has multiple stuff, sounds OK. Just thought I'd throw out a reminder.

    Good luck with the replica.
