View Full Version : Hey Buff--It ain't a wheelgun, but what did I buy?

I know--but do you?? It is a blue gun and I'd rate it overall at 80%. Wish it had the tools--

I have never even held one of those!
Pretty sure it is a Fourth Model Single Shot, also called the Straightline Target. 1925-1936. 1870 of them made.
You find some great stuff!

I owe it to keeping my head up. And making some great contacts--plus a little good luck.
Was wandering the local show last weekend and a guy that I have done biz with over the years sees me and pulls me off to the side of his table. He says he found something I may be interested in--and pulls this out.
Yep, I'm hooked.
BUT--I had bought out a guy's table completely of reloading equipment and I didn't have the bux. He asked me what I had left--only 200 in pocket. OK, deal--that will hold it till I got the bucks.
Went and got it today. I put about a dozen rounds out the back yard. Didn't shoot it for accuracy. BUt it sure shoots nice. Grips are marked to be original to the gun--SN 11XX.
I figured you would appreciate it.

Straightlines are way cool and I like 'em. I also like the Perfected single shots as well! Your box is probably worth about as much as the gun. Very nice find, sell it to me.:cry:
