    USGI Detective Special

    Not the greatest pics and really difficult to see anything.
    NOT mine and have no affiliation with it other than sharing the link.

    Looks legit, but if the guy is dealing in collectibles in these value categories, he really needs to learn how to take better pictures.

    According to Winston Wolfe, this should be about a $2500 gun and an OSS gun considerably higher but no where near what this guy is asking. Absalom is right the pictures are way too poor for that kind of money. I am pretty sure that was the values WW placed on those guns when he gave me an estimate on one of mine.

    I am not justifying the price, but I am sure WW would like to buy them for less

    I saw this auction. The gun is at least double what it’s worth, in my opinion. Really hard to tell condition from these pictures, so I would put it at $2,500 or less retail. And yes, I definitely like to buy them for less. I think I paid $1,100 for my last one.
