    He's certainly proud to own them...

    You have to involve an importer, and the piece 'will' be marked...

    Whoa... $$$....I wonder if his asking prices are justifiable though. I mean, how rare are real 1st gen. SAAs in Europe? Can't be many of them floating around I'd imagine.

    Great point about the gun be marked for import. Where would they typically mark it? And with what? Sounds terrible.

    I dont know what the rate is the US dollar as opposed to the euro dollar. Maybe you guys didn't look close and take that into consideration??
    Years ago when Jack First the gun parts store now in Rapid City used to be in Lancaster California, he had MANY guns from england. Many were colts, winchesters etc that were part of that program during world war two where they had solicited bleeding hearts here to donate guns as they thought england might be invaded. Jack and another gunsmith I knew that worked for him went over and bought many of them to bring back and sell in his shop. Prices were fair, BUT the killer for me was as Dogface6 pointed out, all had a bunch of extra proof marks hammered on the guns.
    Really was a big turnoff for me. Not only that, but it seemed most if not all the .22 rifles had the muzzles threaded for silencers. He had a lot of old fine Winchester pumps and levers that were otherwise in nice shape except for that!

    I bought a 1909 saa in 32/20 off him couple years ago.his descriptions are good, and he will haggle with you on the price, i got 500 off the colt i got from him, and he even payed the postage.
    had no trouble importing the gun, and we dont have any numbers engraved on it.when it arrives in customs.
    Im fairly sure Ives lives part of the year in Arazona.

    Just curious what everyone thought of his “artillery” with the 3xxxxx triggerguard and b.s. Typical. Look at his descriptions v.s what they really are.

    When I saw that, I quickly lost interest.
