    Is anyone going to bid on that, "Honest and...

    ...Original Cavalry Colt"? Gunbroker item:

    Seller has another cool Colt and an old Starr. He has an interesting way of describing his auction items.

    If I had 10 grand to plunk down on something like this I would want a Kopec letter on it first.

    A Way With Words



    Nice looking piece of history there. But for $10.000. plus a Kopec Letter wouldn't be a bad idea.

    He does have a way with words. I liked his effort to explain the Tom Horn's Hand Gun thing but... that kind of money on a 7 Day Gun Broker Auction is a little too out there for me.

    I have bought several originals and replicas on Gun Broker and have been real lucky. I've had some great phone conversations and exchanged E Mails with some great folks wanting to sell Dad's Old Gun. But when you start talking about $10K that's the time for some serious authentication and verification. I'm not cheap, I'm just not easy.

    That is a chunk of change. How do you value something like that? There's no way to tell just who owned it along the way. It is an antique but a well worn one for sure. Interesting. I wonder if the seller will get his bid.

    Looks like it's "on the level" but a "buy it" for 13K? No way! Nothing special, no cartouches,6500 max.
    If you're intersted in a cav. Let me know.

    I agree with Rick. That gun is overpriced by 100%+.

    This one probably could stir a cow pie quicker than a flock of hungry Barred Rocks.

    That was MY thought, exactly! LOL!

    I can't imagine anyone selling such a high dollar gun without proper documentation.
