The Mother Lode of RB OP\'s

ring.......ring.....

Me: Vivas and Son.
SC: Where have you been? I’ve been trying to call you for a few days!?
Me: I was out of town for a few days. Whats up?
SC: A fellow brought me a box of revolvers. Thought I’d call you.
Me: A box of revolvers eh? OK, I’ll be there in two hours.

I pile into my Tactical Subaru, Blue Death™, hop down to SC’s place and swing the deal.

I come home with this:


Hmmmm...a big brown box. Let’s look closer..............



Hmmm....says REVOLVERS and SECURITY.....
I wonder what could be inside...........

Holy Crap! Come to daddy baby!!!!!!!!!!!








A large quantity of 5 screw S&W M&P’s, most in the low C-series range. An equally large quantity of Colt Official Police revolvers, including several of the harder to find round butt version. Also a few pre-war OP’s.

These 50 guns came from the security force of one of the oldest and best known racetracks in NY. Also a quantity of shotguns.

Serious coolness.

Re: The Mother Lode of RB OP\'s

The guns were issued fom WW2 or so up until about 10 yaers ago. They are in surprisingly good shape. Some holster wear, but otherwise not bad!!

So far there are about a half dozen of the harder to find RB OP's.

Are you going to list these on your website or over here in the classifieds? I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like a shot at these /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif.

Finds like this are all too rare...

The discovery of King Tut's Tomb is the only find in recent history that compares to this... Outstanding!!!
