Remember the chrome plated 27 we were talking about here a year or so ago, well here is another one or perhaps the same one. I don't remember who had it.

I notice the rear sight is not chromed and there appears to be something funny about the drum chrome in one picture, not in the other. Lower has a full auto selector or perhaps the bolt hold open feature.

You can't chrome potmetal!
If someone gives $8500 for that, have I got a deal for them. Maybe I should pick up a WH gun and have a $500 chrome/nickle plating job done. I think it's the lighting in the drum shots. Trying to use flash against chrome is a bad thing.

Seems to have the West Hurley detachable buttstock adapter on the trigger frame. Look how low the stock sits when installed on the frame in the last picture. Also looks like the drum rotor fingers are shiney from that top shot...wonder if the spring got dipped too biggrin.gif

I'm wondering what the selector switch (on this particular gun) is used for? dry.gif

If it's full auto, then which ATF form is on? (Form 3, 4, etc.)

Is it a bolt lock?

Is it display only?

The sad part is the seller is intimating that this is a one off "special event" factory gun. What a freakin sham! It is a well know schtick used by live auctioneers planting the seed....... looks like a Rolex, and all the bidders remember is the "Rolex" part, when it is not even a Timex.......

Dan, I thought maybe you had heard that pun, being an Iowa boy (I grew up in Nebraska). I apologize if I offended the owner of the gun. Don't hunt me down!
