    Awesome pics at above gunbroker site. Only missing pic is one of an open bolt. I like pic #15 of the two beads from shooter's end.

    Joe, there's a little bad news about that "open bolt." I take it you don't know...

    What is the bad news? An ATF rule?

    No, no problem like that, Joe. It's just that there's no "open bolt" position, the spring always is trying to close it.

    One hand holds the gun. A second hand opens the bolt and holds it open. The third hand loads the shell...

    Ljutic spacegun #62 is for sale at the new Cabelas store in Hammond Indiana. Sorry, I don't recall the price.

    Price is $3900. Cabela's bought it as part of a collection. Stock is the tubular variety. I spoke to a fellow named Pete, who is working in the Gun Room and is a trapshooter. He says the gun is in very good shape - a little wear on the wood forearm and a little blue wear but nothing major. Only has one choke tube; not sure what size that is. Don't know which rib (there were 3 possibilities) it has. Pete says it looks like it's about 1 1/2" high.

    The gun should look like this photo - #74 when I owned it.

    Their phone is 219-845-9040. Price seems a bit high to me.

    I cut a wooden dowel and inserted it so the bolt was open for people to see.

    Ljutic's new partner is reported to be a production genius. I would think that he could build Space Guns by the carload and sell them for a lot less than those used guns are selling for in today's market.

    The gun is a remarkably simple piece of machinery that would be very popular with shooters who are allergic to recoil. It could become the Model 12 of the 21st Century.

    Agree with Mr Winston - pain in the neck to load. This gun has a thrust hammer system and inside that tube behind the reciever is about 40 pounds of spring. Before buying, I would really try to shoot one and then imagine pulling that bolt back a few hundred times in a weekend.

    I went to Hammond IN today to see the Loveabulls...the Chicago Bulls cheerleaders.....I will be damned if there were only two of them walking around. Now I used to date a girl that cheered varsity for Western Ky Univ....and let me tell you what...she was wayyyy more attractive than either of those "professional" cheerleaders. It makes you wonder how they get their jobs.... Anyways, I saw the spacegun there....it looked like it was in pretty good shape. The price tag was $4500. I am assuming that cash price was probably less. I got the same story about them acquiring it in an estate buy along with around 20 other guns.

    On another note, I also saw two little win model 42's. One of them was 12,000 and the other was 9,000...I have never seen one of those for that much...around 3K was the most I have seen one for...someone please explain this!
