jeezus, the guy's a businessman! Why does everyone have a problem with his markup? He doesn't own a non-profit business for God's sake.

Just do some research and see what the markup is on typical jewelry or furniture....but most of us pay it!

Honestly, neither would I...taking advantage of someone in desperation is what pawning is all about. No one is twisting anyone's arm to sell the stuff for pennies on the dollar.

I love the show and find Rick to be far more honest than most of the guys in that line of work. He does lowball, but usually tells people what their item is actually worth before making an offer.

That guy Sean has been around for years and was a common sight in gun stores all over the west for many years. He knows his stuff.

I enjoy the show very much. I like the old man, but could do without the Chumley character.

Keep us in the loop JD.

People do it all the time of their own volition at their personal garage sales. Capitalism Baby, Capitalism.

I enjoy the show but the Lovely Mrs is grossed out by the two young lard buckets.

UPDATE: Not a damn thing to report.

That guy Sean seemed like he was all interested in assessing my rifle and finding me a compatible revolver to make a matching set. I had high hopes, I was ready to send the guy some money to acquire the right piece.

A couple of weeks have gone by and I have not heard anything back from Sean. I have called and sent a couple of e-mails but to no avail.

So, I am open to possible suggestions. Anyone know a history arms specialist that can assist me in finding a pistol to match this rifle??

If you wanted a revolver in the same caliber same era then a Colt SAA in 44-40. sounds about right.

Or if you wanted a smith you have


New Model No. 3 Frontier single action

.44 Double Action (1886 until about 1913)

.44 Hand Ejector First Model (the famed Triple Lock)

.44 Hand Ejector Second Model & Third Model

To chose from.

Isn't Scubie into Cowboy style shooting? He may be of assistance or have access to someone in the business.

I agree with Tango on the Peacemaker. It's definately the most well known of the pistols from the era and most likely would have accompanied many of the Winchester rifles on the trail. The Schofield is a good choice as well...

JD, you want a period correct piece, right? If so, you want a 1st Gen SAA in .44-40.
