Once again, I want to thank all of you who have posted on the forum or written me personally. Several of you asked to be kept up on how things are proceeding. My criminal complaint against Fugate Firearms was accepted by the USPS Criminal Investigations Service Center, and I've been informed that an investigation has been initiated. In the meantime, I offered Fugate what I considered an equitable way to resolve our dispute and close the criminal action: I would correct the defect and post the piece on Gunbroker, GunsInternational, and GunsAmerica with no mention of Fugate and at a price appropriate to its condition (per Dennis Russell’s price guide for second-generation Colt percussion revolvers). In return, Fugate would reimburse me for the difference between the price I get and what I paid them for a piece improperly represented as New In Box. My certified letter was received by Matt Fugate on April 23. I have received no response as of this date.
