    Buyer Beware...

    Not sure what this guy is trying to push here, his work or ....I mean sure, someone put some time into this but it wasn't Conrad Ulrich...in his defense he doesn't have a 30k starting bid...but just don't seem like the right way to go about it.

    Looks to me like he's trying to pass off the rifle as the one in the book's pics.

    Re: Buyer Beware...

    I emailed the guy through gunbroker, and asked who did the aftermarket engraving and restoration work...he replied with this response...

    "I really don't know and all I do know is that it is one of the cutest guns I've ever seen. It functions flawlessly and The man I got it from lost his job in Chicago and is now selling guns that were saved for his grandchildren and thank God that he didn't save in the stock market. I paid him handsomely for this piece and my wife didn't want me to sell it-however I have a lot of guns and am now 69 years old and and don't need anymore."

    Seems like a nice enought guy...........I just don't want to see anyone to get taken advantage of....

    If you look at the deer picture on the rilfe, and then the one in the book you will see that the feet and neck are in different locations. There are other gotchas on there as well. You just have to look.

    Some guns give engraving a bad name.

    Re: Buyer Beware...

    I looked at the gun before I read the responces.. I am glad it wasn't just me.. I think it's down right UGLY.. and has UGLY it didn't even use yet.. .

    I would buy a used one with broken stock and no bluing for 300 before I would buy that

    Magnified The Deer on the rifle ,, can't tell the horns from the tree branches and tail looks like a 5 alarm chili fart .. Damn

    I hate to be critical as I would sure do worse if I tried to do a rifle.. but I'm sorry for the buyer as he got taken

    Different strokes for different folks. Somebody will like it enough to buy it.
