Well the market will settle the real value for that gun. Asking and getting are two different things but you never know. I looked at the gun and came away feeling it was one more tired old gun which had been sleeved and refinshed too make it look like a cherry. Fancy wood raises my interest but not by that much. Still it only takes one buyer and if he is willing to wait a few years he might get the price. Others on the net seem willing to wait years to move inventory so why not one more? It will be nice eye candy to look at for the next few years, like a mid grade Lefever which has been for sale for six years by one seller. Almost a fair price now.
