    I have posted a WTB ad here and on the Smith and Wesson forum. I have gotten one e-mail from olu87061@gmail.com
    It sounded like a scam right from the first sentence: "You still seek for the Merwin Hulbert Pocket Army, let me know"

    So he sent me this when I asked for pictures and a price:



    Pics stolen from O.C. Youngs website for a Pocket Army for sale for over $8000

    Merwin,Hulbert & Co.

    twaits,

    I was looking at O. C. Young's website yesterday afternoon and I saw the pistol with the photos you are showing. When I opened your post, I remembered the color of the cloth first. I hate CROOKS like these guys trying to steal honest folks money.

    Or tell him that because you want to avoid scams by theives, you want photographic proof that he actually has the gun in his possession. Ask him to please send you a photo of himself "with the pistol shoved straight up his ass."

    Ha ha! I thought about playing with him a little bit but figured it wouldn't be worth the risk of him "playing with me"
    So I just didn't reply to his last message and blocked him.
    I also notified O.C. Young by e-mail today about this and he replied with a thanks for the heads up.

    Thanks for sharing and educating us new to Colt

    Thanks for the update, as a new member and I'm sure everyone knows this but just in case.

    I recently bought ( I thought) an excellent looking Nickel Viper , well being the price was good $1900 originally wanted $2200, spare you the details of trade . Got it home checked serial number ,did not end in M or R called Colt Customer Service-they are great BTW- started with F.

    Got my money back and bought a BBL 4 inch Diamondback with lousy plastic grips.

    Moral of the story, bought the The Seven Serpents Book and join the Colt Forum. Knowledge is power and saves time and money.



    Guy said he bought 100 guns for $1000 a piece and didn't know - he gave me my money back

    The world has not "gotten to the point where you can't even enjoy a forum without someone trying to rip you off", the world has always been that way! This forum is no different than any other forum, dating back to the ancient Roman 'Forums', and no doubt long before that!

    Wherever there is a profit to be made, (whether honestly or not), there are always people who will take advantage of other people, and as Mitch so aptly points out, especially those who are not careful, and/or aware of that fact!

    Nothin' New...
