    Auctions won and lost

    Won this, kind of surprised no one bid against me any more.

    Lost this. I really wanted it, but it didnt look like the other guy was going to quit

    If that is NIB I won't be buying from that seller. Damage to the barrel near the muzzle and scratches on the left side of the grip. I don't care abut the "pristine" cardboard boxes.

    It only sold for that price because it is a "Colt".

    The Dixon flask has a lot of wear on the finish for that price. Granted originals had a lacquer finish, but really nice 2nd flasks sell for little more. Hold out for something better. in the $150 range or maybe $175 or keep after a better one at a lower price. Buying accessories a la carte gets expensive. Have you considered a Grant/Lee?

    On another note, I think there's a Dixon in similar condition offered for hundreds more bought it at a flea market and believed original...thought to the seller otherwise but he can learn on his own.
