    I recently bought a barrel off of ebay that came off of a gun that had sat in a barn for 50+ years. It was supposed to be from a factory engraved gun, so I contacted the seller and asked if he had the reciever, which he said he did. Long story short, I won the barrel and bought the reciever from him. I took the gun to the Illinois state shoot saturday for Stu Wright to look at. Stu wasnt sure on the engraving and suggested that I contact Pauline Muerrel about it.
    So I sent Pauline a email yesterday describing the gun and she asked for pictures. Very quickly Pauline called me and told me I had an ultra rare gun engraved by John Ulrich!!!! She also said not to have it restored and leave it be, which I am going to do.

    So here are some pics of this beautiful gun!!!

    Who knows what it worth, to me it is priceless. Im not only a model 12 nut, but a history nut as well. This piece has the best of both worlds! I have been told thats it probably worth 8K +
