    I think he wants $1500.00 for it, not sure, so don't hold me to it, and I don't have pics, yet, but will try to get him to post some. I am curious if there is any interest in these.

    I don't know when I will see the owner again, we are getting another big snow forcast for my local again this weekend, which is the only time I have seen him at the club. Next time I do, I will ask him to either post some pictures or make the gun available for me to take some.

    I got a PM from the owner and he is going to call me tonight. I don't know if he has pics, if not I will try to get them myself this Sunday, if it isn't snowing like crazy again, which they are saying could happen.

    It's my gun, and I would like to sell it, but I'm unable to post pictures right now. Maybe I could get my wife to do it in the next few days.

    I bought it here several years ago, but the design caused it to misfire on the left barrel frequently. I sent it back to Nadine, and they fixed it , along with some others that had the same problem. It took several months and about $200 I think. It is now like new, but with no box or papers. It is serial #033. I think they only made a few. Nadine could tell you.

    I paid $1500 for it about six or seven years ago and put a bit of money in on the repair and shipping, but I'll take $1500 for it now. I've only fired it about 100 rounds since I've had it. It is a .22 mag side by side, and a really well made and beautiful rare gun. Bob Doyle

    For several years, and long ago, Ljutic used to display, in their tent at Vandalia, many of the off-the-wall gun designs of Al Ljutic. In addition to wild shotgun designs, there were several styles of pistols, both auto and break open, rifles with interchangeable barrels for different calibers and others I can't remember. Al is a legendary genius of gun design, although a bit eccentric. There used to be "rumors" of his designing for the CIA but who knows. There aren't many left like him. Jimmy Borum

    5 or 6 years ago I shoot some with a guy from Lafayette Indiana he is dead now . He bought a LJutic Derringer kind of a crude thing the fit and finish was very poor . I think he paid around a $1,000 for it .
