    My Alfermann #149 is for sale, Barrel was opened up to larger bore and helped reduce the heavy feel quite a bit. I will try and post pictures tomorrow. Price $5,700 with case. Silver Dollar Special, replaceable rib 90/10, Recent reblue and new release parts (can convert to pull with parts I don't have). Roger Eubanks did a great job of overboreing it and rechokeing it. It's now a Baker big bore that patterns 83% at 40 yards. I got Keybear's old Seitz. AJ

    Ljutic started the game..Tom Seitz developed upon it..then came Alferman, Silver Seitz, Bowen. Find any one of the above that fits and you've got a treasure. All expensive but what the heck, you can't take it with you!

    The Alfermann is one of the very best trap guns made. Built like a tank and a soft shooter. TexShooter's price for his gun is hard to beat. I have my #191 up for sale at $5900.

    YOU CAN'T GO WRONG. if you want a high quality trapgun with a super fast trigger Alfermann is it. It is every bit as good as silver seitz and bowen and alot less money. I dare you to compare guns.. The alf boys are the best to deal with. they are Not as heavy as my Kolar unsingle.
