Quick question as I don't know the prices very well and I'm figuring you do. You posted a link a while back to a Walther P38 inn polished blue finished for $750. That a poor, good, or great price for this model?
Hauptman directed me to you regarding a 1961 (?) Mint .22lr gold plated Colt Collector, originally my grandfathers. Never fired, mint & all intact except for OEM cardboard box. I have to sell it but can't afford to do so a 'fire sale' prices. I don't know where to begin to even fairly valuate and sell it.For 8 yrs. (someone here) was the 'gun man' in the house & was going sell it for me but has ended everything. I need any assistance referrals advice, that you might possibly have time for. I read below that your wife is/has been ill & I don't want to impose! $/time is critical for me. I am medically disabled/SSDI $ in a month w/be in my ramshackle house in Phx 120 degree summer heat w/o water.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I truly appreciate it.
Hey I just wanted to say thanks for the help you've given me (and countless other members over the years) with gun purchases and info. It's really a great resource to be able to get good info from someone who actually owns the gun(s) in question along with great pics. It's cool you freely share what info you have and don't come off as a snob in the process like many in your position could.
Hi Brian, I'm Joey. I noticed your rather impressive 1911 collection & your buyers guide. I'm seriously thinking about starting a collection. I have none as of now. I looked at the guide but wondered if you could give me 2-3 personal suggestions for a first 1911. IT doesn't have to be the cheapest but I'm not looking to go custom expensive either. I'd say $1000 & under. The gun will not be for EDC. It would be more for range fun & collecting. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you if you have the time. If not, I completely understand. I work full time, go to school full time, and take care of my disabled wife full time. So, I know what it means to be too busy.
Hi Brian... My name is Tony, and you are sort of my 1911 GURU... I've loved em forever, but have only been in a possesion to start collecting them recently this past year I bought a Blk/Slv Wilson CQB Elite, and SS Wilson CQB Elite w/ AMBI, a Stainless Springfield TRP as a Range Whore, A Nighthawk Blk ENFORCER... My Best Shooter! Hole through Hole @ 50ft. And am looking to score a BAER Ultimate Master in BLUE... But my Friend has just left his Nighthawk Costa Recon he just got with me when he went away... and OMG!!! It's the Nicest Thing I've EVER SEEN!!!
Thanks Brian for your feedback on the Damascus 1911. Other than something really kind of different, I don't NEED a pistol that looks odd just to be odd. I don't keep safe queens, I shoot what I have. That being said, I'd also like to add that I've referenced anybody that'll listen to your 1911 Buyers Guide. It's an excellent read and a good way for shooters new and seasoned to educate themselves. Cheers, Rob.
Hi bac1023, hope you're well. Just a quick question. I've been presented with a somewhat unique opportunity and would like your opinion. I have a chance to pick up a brand new Nighthawk "Damascus". These are quite rare and the waiting list was 2 years (so I've heard, don't know how true that is) when they were in production. Asking price is $5995.00. A ton of scratch for a pistol but, such a rarity would only appreciate, no?
Hey bac. I just posted a pic of an update on my custom work i did on my RIA compact, i attached a pic of before and after. I really value your opinion, so if you can take alook and give me your honest opinion I would appreciate it. Thnaks, Bear
