Pretty wild looking stuff!

$1,600. Want it? I can help make arrangements. 9.3mmX? for the rifle, can't remember the shotgun bore. Was hunted with by an extremely elderly man up until 10 years ago as the story is told. He's still alive, just knows he doesn't have any hunting left in him. Needs a little work, mostly refinishing unless one wants to keep it original, on the wood, I wouldn't touch the metal. It's worn, but i didn't notice even a hint of rust anywhere. Of course, I had no intention of buying, so I didn't look too hard. Has an underlever which seems to be missing a spring. Have to fold it back manually to lock it while holding the breech closed.

Rifle bore slightly dark, rifling not quite that sharp, but still serviceable. Shotgun bores nearly perfect, slight darkness about a third of the way down from the breech.

I would be proud to have it in my collection, but it is way out of the budget I'm afraid. Sounds like a great gun!

They may be flexible, I'm not sure. I think as a collector's item it may be with every penny, possibly more. The girl that runs the gun counter is kinda like a female c3shooter. All her prices are fair in a currently unfair market! She really knows her stuff though. Her Mom, who I guess is the manager, is a teetotal Bitch though. I normally would never call a woman such a thing, but it's true. I've never wished so much ill on any woman in my life, except my ex.

It's a tool shop. Most anything you'd ever need, can order anything you'd ever want. But they also sell tacticool AR stuff, t shirts, vests, magazines... A gun store as a side business pretty much. Gun girl's husband is a vet, real cool guy. They're who would always get my business if they have what I wanted. They deal in mostly used, but some new. It's about a 75/25 split, used/new.

South of Parker, where the highway is deserted and the desert is a highway.

I may have to wait a long time for service.

Looks like most of my hometown on an average day. Damn Tucson...already in the mid-90's.

My buddy Tom (Snakeboy) & myself after a few hours shooting at a the local indoor range I frequent (I look like hell warmed over cause I came straight from Physical Therapy):

Nice pic. That could be in a jeep calendar or advertisement.
