I am going to attempt to make lemonade from a lemon. Resent purchase was less that stated in ad but I am going to bring it back to life.This will be a long process as I will have to send it off for much work, so be patient. It will have a OD green and black suit on when finished. I hope!!!!

"Resent purchase was less that stated"
WTS 98% rare Diamondback Snub :bang_wall:
I knew it was a project gun and they had plenty of pictures but they said the gun was mechanically sound, well it was not so I got a bigger project than I intended. Wanted to send it back but the buyer said tough s***, so I am going to make the best of it, if I can....

Would it be proper to mention his name or ID of any kind so that we can steer clear of this individual?:mad:

I don't know if it's quote "proper" or not, or whether you want to "steer clear", but I don't think any of us should be allowed to have aliases and post under several different names. Plain and simple "fugotti" the OP is the one and only John Fugate.

I'm in the dark here. The ad shown showed very clear photos of the gun in question. His asking price was $600. I didn't see where you said what you paid so it's kind of hard to know how bad you got hurt. Based on the photos, I wouldn't have wanted it at any price, but one person's feast is another's famine. But just as a comparison, I paid $1,100.00 for a 2 1/2 Diamondback NIB and it will aways be worth more as time passes. No matter how nice yours turns out, it will probably never be worth what you are going to pay to get it right. It will always be a shooter, not an investment.

Your saying this gun is not investment quality ? Hows that ? Your first sentence has me a little concerned.
