Thanks Mike, Saw the gun , nice WOOD! However, if I am going to spend the $ a Seitz goes for, Would perfer a newer, HOPEFULLY with less ROUNDs, I am sure you know the situation with a early model Trap firearm. Regards Jeff

Go out to their web site -- they typically have a couple of guns for sale, and buying from them, you have confidence they are in good shape.

One other thing to keep in the back of your mind.

If you buy one from SS, and it has an adjustable rib, but not exactly what you were hoping for in terms of height or POI range, talk to Rich about it. Good chance he'll swap it out at a reasonable fee, and you'll have exactly what you want.

Cyrus, I wouldn't shy away from a Seitz, just because it has an earlier #. There are quite a few "safe queens" with a low number, that have very low mileage. Your statement" I'm sure you know the situation with an early model trap gun" really is off target. If a gun has been cared for, age doesn't apply. There are lots of newer guns being shot that I wouldn't take for free.
The simplicity & quality of the SS guns, make age & mileage a moot point.

The gun that huff has for sale appears to be a really good deal. The guns are very robust, I would not worry about 200 to 300 in the serial # range.

I have to jump in here. I bought a Silver Seitz a few years ago from a fellow on TS.com and I am the 5th owner. It's serial # 007, one of the first batch that AIM made after Tom Seitz's tragic death. The gun is cosmetically 98% and mechanically darn close to how it was when it was made. It's been taken care of by each owner and periodically serviced at AIM.

I can certainly understand why you'd want a newer gun, but at least in my experience, an early model Silver Seitz is a terrific gun. I don't think you should eliminate any Silver Seitz from consideration.

Rich Phillips at AIM maintains a pretty accurate record of who owns what Silver Seitz. If you find one, call him and he might be able to give you some background on the gun. Also, I had the prior owner of 007 send the gun directly to AIM and Rich went over it before I actually took possession. The seller and I agreed that if Rich found anything, we'd perhaps re-negotiate our transaction.

Good luck.
