Hi twaits,


I agree...it is too good to chop.


I have gotten fond of the stubby old .455 Cartridge...and it does not seem oddball to me anymore now.

Very tempting. I wonder how the mechanics are. I never trust descriptions of old Colt action mechanics unless I know the person describing them knows his way around these guns.

I've bought several Colts from this seller, and will vouch for his honesty. He knows his guns. I've got a New Service in .455 Eley. It came with many boxes of ammo that had been professionaly loaded somewhere in Texas I believe.

If the seller is Glen from Whitefield Maine I can vouch for his honesty too. I think there might be two GB sellers from Whitefield. Glen used to go by Eastern Branch Firearms so I don't know if he changed the name or not.

He's also got this Merwin Hulbert I've been drooling over which I think is priced right. But even so I can't afford a $2000 gun right now:

I love that its a well worn engraved gun that obviously saw a lot of use. But looks like it was well cared for. Probably saved someones ass a few times in it's day.

Are you the winner? It looks like it sold for $419. I think that was a really good deal.
