The seller is playing ignorant, so the actual condition is anyone's guess, but it's good internally I'd say it's plenty well worth it.  You pay extra for that messed up finish from Uberti.  In this case you get it for free.
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.   James 1:25 (KJV)

So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.   James 2:12. (KJV)

Did you just say Uberti's finish is not very good ?

I think he's talking about Uberti's antique finish. I think it's worth taking a gamble on. There's no drag line and the cylinder notches aren't dinged up.

OK. By the way I'm not interested, just passing the info on. Seems that $150 for a collector
might be good. Of course U paz U money takes U chances. ::)

Hewy ,
I'm thinking of sending the S&B ,  R&S and 2 - 5.5" 1858's  off to the Goons next month. I thought i'd try and keep Mike busy.
