Can't tell the condition of the item from the pictures, but based on the price and what it includes it would be a good deal provided everything is in working order and indeed transferable and not rusted.

I tried to get hold of this guy to check it out in person, but no response. It is a WH gun, but hey, so is mine. If I sell my other house in a couple weeks.........maybe i'll hunt this guy down to really check it out! Of course I think my wife would kick my ass 'til my nose bleeds. laugh.gif

I'd love to see those two 15 round magazines that go with the gun. Gotta be ultra rare. Maybe the seller means at least 15 rounds?

Do I understand this to be a reserve auction, which means that $10K is only the starting bid, not what he would let it go for?

Gun is still for sale. I heard back from the guy this week-end. If someone is interested, he is in Anderson Indiana. I can arrange a meeting if someone wants me to inspect it for them. Email me direct. I won't charge too much! laugh.gif

If his reserve is the same as his dealer's estimate, Mike would be scheduling a kidnapping, rather than a meeting, between the seller and hostage.
