    A poster was selling this gun and asking $1550. I offered him less, but at the same time tried to establix=sh the value of the custome wood he had Cole put on the gun. I just received a email answer back from Cole and I thought it would be of interest to many that own these guns and to others So here is a paste of the email I recieved this AM. Jack

    Sir, a stock and forend set from a blank in Turkish AAA grade would be about $1500. Regards- Rich

    Rey. per usual, you picked up on this plan early on. I knew nothing of Cole stocks and really only wanted to eithr buy his gun or help him out. Was he a bit sensitive? That does not matter as he charged fairly and got it done. So I say good fo rhim and I hope he finds me easier next time. I do try and buy guns so I cna resell them, and that was all I was up to.

    Know any leftys? All nice guns.

    As new 90T Lefty

    Purty Custom partial roll-over TM1 Special wiht good bbl yet. Numbers match (metal anyway)

    Mirage Sporting. 28" briley gun, with range of skeet to SC.

    The last two I can substitute stocks I own anf the90T can be converted to righty.
