I passed up a 1878 colt double barrel 12 ga at the gun show last weekend for $600 bucks, not sure if i made the right decision or not. It was real ruff, but it looked OK to me. I can still get a hold of it if you guys think it's worth it for a small investment. The barrel had some dings on it and one of the hammers was soldered back together. I know how that sounds, i am not going to run to the range with it, i have just never seen one before. The wood was not refinished and looked nice along with the bluing.
