Good to hear from you Jim. Like you, It's the first full fluted SS 1860 I've ever seen. Not too sure about the shoulder stock use causing the divots in the grips; but, I have no idea what might have. While the gun was dirty, it didn't have any fouling buildup that would indicate much use. Looked as if it only had some QC rounds through it. Of course, that changed last weekend when I used it and my rebated 1860 at the SASS Mississippi State Championship match. Put about 50 rounds through them.
We would been in a bidding war then, cause I was ready to go much higher
