A few too many zeros in the price?

Does the price of this Uberti seem a little high?

Either that, or the seller has been looking upon the ale when 'twas a very nut-brown color indeed... :scrutiny:

Considering I could pick up on of these Murcielagos for the exact same price, the seller has got to be on a controlled substance.

That or it's a case of the SO saying, "Get rid of that thing. It's just takin' up space!"

"Gee hon, I tried. I put it up for auction, but it just didn't sell. Oh well, guess I'll just have to keep it.:evil: "

I will have to write this technique down for future reference whenever I get hitched :evil:

i couldn't open the ad, so I couldn't see the price, but . . .

I'm not sure how gunbroker allows you to input price, but gunsamerica lists it as:
_ _ _ _ _ _

A lot of people input 550 or 465 and the ad comes out as $550,000 or $465,000

waterhouse has got to be right, the guy means $250.

Unless this was the actual gun used to shoot Jesse James, in which case a certain collector is SOL, and whoever buys this is getting a screaming deal...

And actually, $250 isn't a bad price for such an unusual piece, provided Uberti had their mojo going during whatever year of production that would be.

I emailed the guy. It's supposed to be $1,000 for the opening bid and $2,500 for the Buy It Now price.

IMHO, that is still one zero too high!!

BTW I had the rifle (carbine) version of that baby rolling block an enterprising gunsmith rechambered it to .357 Max. In the thick brush I hunt deer in it was like Thor's Hammer. Never had one take more than four steps (I was using factory Rem. 158 grn JSPs). I also used it for bushytail harvesting with .38 target wad cutters. Out of the 20" barrel the wad cutters are very quiet, lower noise levels than a .22 LR. Traded it in a deal for a used car (80, Camaro, yes I was young AND green) that had an engine with one cylinder in the wreakingyard and gave out a month later:cuss: :banghead: .

Thanks to jtward05 for checking..Lord knows I LOVE firearms, but that's a bit much!
