well guys seems like i ran into some very bad luck...As I was cleaning the gun right now I noticed that the slide and barrel are from a Colt MK IV/Series 70. Government Model .38 super, but the receiver isnt. The reciever is a Caspian Arms LTD and the grips are Hogue.

Luckly, I gave the guy a 200 dollar deposit while I tested out the gun to make sure it was in good working order. Here is my thing, do you guys think I should just pay the remaining balance which would make it a total of 500 for the gun or get back my money?

I can't tell you what to do under those circumstances. Personally, I wouldn't do the deal.

red1027 01-08-2010 06:30 AM

Yea, i am definitely not going to complete the deal.

I feel embarrassed that I didn't noticed when I first saw the gun, but yet I am glad that I still haven't completed the deal.

I like it!! I'm convinced my next 1911 is going to be in 38 super(just don't tell Mrs. Spittinfire), yes that's right, I said next 1911.


And I just saw the additional information...I too would walk away, unless he wants to let you have it for the $200.

Just an FYI - Caspian makes a great frame. If the gun was put together by someone with some skills - it was probably worth the $500...

I totally agree. Caspian makes some good stuff. You may have lucked into a deal of a custom gun the sellers not aware of. You could always point out to him that it's not the 'stock' gun you thought you were getting, and possibly get a discount, but overall, I think you got a nice buy. If it shoots great, and "feels awsome", why not keep it?
