    Who might be planning on going by Hill Rod & Gun and might be able to look at a gun for me?

    Gary Delin would be another one to talk to.
    I am sure that with yahoo white pages you can find the numbers that you need.

    Thanks, I'll look them up. Charlie at Hill has a gun up there that I can't believe is real ...

    Bob: Don't keep us in suspense! I have purchased guns from Charlie in the past with no problems. Rather than "real" do you possibly mean "all original"? I am sure all his guns are real guns. Art G.

    Hi Art,

    Yeah, I take Charley at his word. It is the droplock Westley pigeon gun, and is a consignment.

    There are a couple of interesting 'features' - aside from the fact that it is a dedicated live-bird gun. The bearing surfaces show, virtually, no shooting wear ... 100? 200? 500? shells since it was made in 1913.

    Some yay-hoo has been after the screws with a 50ยข garage-sale screwdriver and the lock plate and trigger bow have been polished and cold-blued.

    Not good, but may not be bad. May not.

    Charley & I have not got real serious abt price yet, but we may shortly.

    I'll let you know if it happens.

    Bob
