When my uncle died, his wife decided to keep an air pistol. Now, she has decided to sell it. It is a Walther model 53, Cal 4.5mm with about a 7 inch barrel. It breaks open to cock it and it shoots rather well. It is missing the back of the adjustable sight. I am looking for a range of $ since we are a ways apart. Is there a better place to check this out? I have looked on several auction site but have seen little like it. You may PM me if you would rather. I will try and get the camera charged and shoot some pictures of the gun. Thanks for any help. Omaha
