I'm seriously pondering. I'm not a big user of shotguns but that might be a "collector". I think ANY shipping other than to a repair facility would require an FFL-to-FFL transaction (which usually costs about $25 around here).

I'll admit that the first photo had be looking it as one of those "is it concave (in an insert) or is it convex (on top of something)" optical illusions. Once I scrolled and saw the next pic, it was obvious. Just an odd perspective thing for me.

By "good" are we on the same page? Damascus? The lighting isn't good so is it a single or double trigger?

I'll be seeing it in person, soon. I'm taking it shooting next week. I *think* it's one behind the other, double-trigger. Clarifying that with my son. He got it as partial payment in a build he did, and gave it a good cleaning and such. He's shot and owns hand guns, but isn't looking to keep a long gun around, especially one that seems to have a solid collector value and status. He took it in trade against part of the job based he did for someone, at ~$1k value after researching collector values of $1100-$1400. There's probably some flex in the price, but I'm not the one to negotiate that. I'll pass messages back and forth, but any offers will be sent directly to him. He's on job sites most daylight days that aren't a total shit show weather wise, so please forgive any answer delays that might take a bit.

Thx.

Did some looking. "Vulcan" steel is NOT Damascus and can stand up to standard/light lead shot loads. No heavy loads and none of the newer stuff allowed on most ranges/hunting.

Sadly I'm out. Sorry for the distractions.

All disposable excess $ was just consumed for paying taxes and tax prep.

I now have this here and can answer more detailed questions. I can't post it on that other motorcycle forum because apparently guns are devil's work or some other pussification mindset bullshit. * shrug *

PS... still have this. Anyone wants to meet at a local range to try it out... and the price is getting more flexible. Also, able to meet periodically around the Brandywine, WV area.

Someone should negotiate for this very, very nice piece.

A little more information on this: it's from year 1906, serial number 132087, apparent street value somewhere between $1400 and $10,000 depending on condition. I'm not any sort of enthusiast of shot guns, but in general old gun terms, this thing is in great shape for something that didn't live in a case its whole life. It's clean, ready for a home with a user or collector. I just want some sort of fair price for this thing, and will entertain all sorts of interesting offers. I don't need to go anywhere near that pricing range, if that helps.

Couple points:
1. Interstate purchases only require an FFL on the buyer's end, if the FFL will accept from private individuals. Most will.
2. chornbe is a great seller; buy with confidence;
3. I'm asking my shotgun buddies if they're interested.

Got a more reasonable and tighter street price from a guy working just from pics. $800-$1500 is an expected retail going rate, so... ya know... flex. :)

Any interesting trades...? :)

I can barely shoot anything any more with these shoulders all torn up from the drunk guy hitting me, and after the last bout of surgery that didn't fix all that much, I'm just not doing that again. I think my days of shooting long guns, especially those with real kick is over. I gave up the hand guns, too. Archery is still doable in mild quantities. Anyway... this is taking up space and deserves to be owned by someone who can give it a proper home and care for it.

Do we hear like $500 before it heads off to like Bud's Guns or GunBroker or something...? Anyone?
