An Auction Arms enter it yourself link. It's a 10 bore Bonehill hammer damascus missing a firing pin. Knocked off at 275$.

All that I can tell from the bad photos is that is was a nice gun at one time and the stock needs lots of work.

Here is the link:

http://www.auctionarms.com/search/displayitem.cfm?itemnum=8210461

The photos are terrible and out of focus. The seller has no history. There appears to be a gap between the barrels and the receiver. So besides replacing the hammer, the gun will have to be put on face and needs some stock work.

Agrre the pics are bad but...Looked to me like the action was tight...lever looks pretty much centered....even though the seller has no feedback he took credit card for payment...wood looks like it needs some sprucing up.....Just wondering if I made a mistake not bidding on it....275 sounds more like what a worn out JABC goes for...Not what a Named British made 10 bore goes for....

The buyer got a very nice gun for that price, IMO. The pictures do suck and the description, as well. However, this was a very fine gun and even with a bit of money spent fixing what it needs, would still be a bargain. I especially liked the sellers answer about the bore condition: "it appears to be dirty but I think it would clean up nicely" That's like being "allegedly dead! It's either dirty or it isn't. Why didn't he clean the da*n bores himself?

Classic example of a seller costing himself a fair amount of money with poor marketing.
