This gun is describrd as "UNTURNED"

Colt Diamondback 2.5 Nickel UNTURNED : Revolvers at GunBroker.com

HA! More like poorly refinished in someones garage and then dragged down a gravel road at 100mph. Give me a break people...

It's listed with a buy it now price of $3500. I don't even think I'd pay $350 for this one. On second thought, if the box turned out to be real I guess I might go to $400.

Snakeman this is a funny description if ever I heard one.I wonder how all those nice scratches and ding marks occured? I guess your technique of dragging it in the gravel would be a effective cause of same..Thanks for the laugh.....Mike

Technically, it could have been refinished and dragged down a road, but still be unturned. Not that easy to do, but still possible. :)

Wow! That's bad. I actually know this guy or knew him. He was the one whom introduced me to the Fake boxes, not in a good way either lol... He said he didn't know they were fake. I always give the benefit of the doubt-the first time anyway. He bought a couple of NIB Snakes from me and traded a couple with me. He got both my NIB 8 inch KC and my 2.5 inch Blue also. He sold the NIB 8 inch KC on GB for a staggering amount at the time. Actually to this day I don't know if one has ever bought more than that one did. I haven't talked to him or seen him in over a year. He used to call me quite often wanting my opinion on snake purchases he was contemplating. I actually tried to halfway take up for him a few times on here in the past, but I will not do that anymore. Unfortunately his intentions are obvious and have been for quite awhile... I hate to see him doing this:(, but I'm sad to say it doesn't surprise me either.

Grandpa always said "if you can't say something nice...." but in this instance... Really? That's about as nice as I think I can get. Unturned? Selective memory, eyesight and perception of the law of physics perhaps.

OK, I'm usually very reticent on giving bad feedback at the drop of a hat, like most people on collectors forums advocate for Ebay. But why not on GunBroker? Come on, if he's selling junk, lying in every ad, and many people know it, WHO is buying? Who is leaving his A+ 100% feedback? OK, I just checked, and he's sold only 4-5 guns this year. Maybe they were all good.

What about asking Gunbroker to police their site a little better? They allow fraud? Ask them that.

No consequences for being a scammer, and he'll remain a scammer.
