Re: Heads up on unscrupulous seller on here - Pete44ru

Waiting to hear Pete's side of this deal. If he lets it stand as is, the case seems closed. He said "NO RUST." He also replied to his buyer, "one man's junk is another man's treasure" according to Mr. Miller. That's no honest reply to a buyer with a serious disagreement about condition. And I am not...

Very disappointed in your seller and his response. Those aren't tomato soup stains. A man who'd sell his integrity for $399 might as well be a politician.

Guys, I bought this Krag knowing it had a questionable bore. A previous owner had the metal refinished to a nice matte blue.

If he is used to running an AR-15, that's a big difference indeed. Those folks get all excited about .458 SOCOM recoil, which is virtually nil.
That said, I will freely admit that a 400-grain Speer going much more than 1850 out of a Marlin .45-70 is not on my list of fun things.
