If that's a 4.75" I'd sorely like to have it.
You could pick it up for me, OS..........but I can't pay you back. :D

I wouldn't need it if Pitchy would give me that sweet .44 Special he has. :D

Oh, I didn't catch the pic.
It's a 5.5 like mine, so eh. The restored part doesn't bother me too much. But for 6k it does!

If it lettered with the correct caliber, extra cylinder, and everything else the way it looks, it would be about a 4-5 gun as restored as extra cylinders are rare..rare....who knows, it could have been a 41 Colt with replaced everything and then it's a 25 hundred gun......properly original it would possibly top 15------6

Ok..if that's the reasoning may I ask Pitchy, ( If he buys it before me) to wrap it up real good, coat it with cosmoline and leave me a shovel in the immediate vicinity. :D ------6

Hahaha.......thats pretty good!
Ain't asking for much, Six. :D

Hey Lenn, why don't you leave a backhoe close by. Hate to work up a sweat digging. Besides, the ground is probably froze 10 months out of the year out there.

Hey Jay...what you be doing next weekend?......I figure you and I could take a ride to Pitchy's and while I'm presenting him with a bottle of rum you could sneak inside and steal it. While your in there, grab me that real nice 1894 he has in there. Just don't take too long as me and Pitchy can knock out a bottle of rum in twenty minutes. Then we can pretend we are all buddies and while you two guys are drunk, I'll take it all and head East. :D ---6

Don't worry Lenn. I wouldn't take your old Colt. You could leave it here at my house for safe keeping, come back in 20 years, and she'd be right here waiting for you. :D
You're too good a friend to snake your SAA away from you. :D

Ok, let's get down to business. Pitchy, I consider you the best entertainer on the board...by a looonnnggg shot so..........

I propose you give your sweetheart Norma the video cam and you go ahead and fire up the Harley and do some donuts in the yard. That would do wonders for the mental health of many of us here who suffer from cabin fever. If you do it, I'll get "Ole Yeller" , the 1989 YJ Jeep out of the barn and do the same out in the pasture...if the snow holds up and I can get it to start. :D

Maybe we can entice that "old Winchester" guy up with n Maine to do the same on his Harley.---6
