Holy Grail

My wife did it again. She drug me to the gun store with the last of our stimulus money. She bought some kinda Glock and I looked at a few guns I liked but didn't want to spend the money on. Finally after making my way from one end of the gun counter to the other end I spotted it. Way down at the very end of the counter on the very bottom shelf way back in the back lay a pristine Uberti Richards Mason 51 navy Wild Bill edition in .38 special. Not only does this gun look like it's never been fired, it looks like it still has the factory packing oil on it. The price was 595.00 and I didn't hesitate after looking it over.

WOW! NICE UN!!. It's a shame a pistol like that was relegated to the very end, on the bottom AND in the back. While all the cookie cutter black plastic tupperware is in the front. SMH

I watched a review on these that was done when they first came out and they cost 807.00 new. This one is LNIB so I don't think I did too bad price wise. The box has some wear and tear on it but it still has the screwdriver and cable lock in it plus some of the paperwork. If it wasn't for the wear on the box it would pass as new.
