I'm just curious. Being a Mainer that was born in Bangor I keep hoping one of my letters comes back as coming from Dakin's someday.
That's the sporting goods store in Downtown that the Brady Gang was cut down in front of when they tried to buy machine guns there.
If anyone has guns lettered to there please post pics of the gun and the letter. Thanks!
Well, I received the factory letter on my Grandfathers Colt Army Special Revolver, It was shipped to T.B. Davis Arms Company in Portland Me, on September 5, 1914.I did find some old history and saw a picture of the building they occupied but thats all so far.
My only Maine lettered one is my NST that was my Grandfathers. But it lettered to Portland and not Dakins in Bangor.
Since I have a fascination with the history of that place and specifically the Brady gang shootout I've wanted a gun lettered to that place.
But it would be a little like winning the lottery, maybe even a little more difficult
