EBCO has a Colt Det. Splc on Gunsamerica that I purchased and returned. He has it listed as 98%, well let me tell you, 65% would be more like it. Then he took $10 out of my purchase price to cover shipping. Plus I had to pay for return shipping. Just a 'Heads up" on this guy.

Were the photos,if any,"doctored" or posed with flattering light???

Sometimes I wonder about some of these photos,and would rather trust a good honest(usually conservative) verbal description from a seller I know/trust.

Have heard of cases of "bait and switch" on some of these internet auctions.

Were you a victim of this?? Helluva difference 'tween 98% and 65%!

Still love "my face to face". Yes,it has cost me some "scarce" revolvers,but I "inspect" the seller as much as the gun. I have walked a few times with a seller I didn't "like" or a gun that felt "warm" to the touch!!

1st pic. was real fuzzy and the one that is up now shows the true condition. And it is still some what out of focus.

Just checked it out! Gawd!!! Looks like Mr. EBCO needs to take a course in % of blue "gun grading". Obviously a helluva lot worse up close and in person. Least the "epoxy color" blended with the "pearls"!! A $225-250 BUG,assuming its in time,and you'd need new stocks,as I wouldn't trust those "pearls" under recoil.

Yeah, and he had the balls to deduct money from my refund too! When I called to tell him I was returning the gun, he acted shocked, like I was screwing him. He didn't lose a dime. I paid shipping both ways. He still is not being truthful in the description. The grips have a big chunk missing and are broke on the other side.
