    Beware of bad junk guns at auctions:

    A repetitive well-worn often-repeated word to the wise, gun gals and guys: Beware of bad broken defective old junk consignment guns at these gun auctions. They are not good deals or cheap, after you add in the costs and prices of leather slings and gunsmithing. That cheap Hawken-type black-powder rifle [that had good brass fittings and wood] also had a cleaning-hole screw broken off under the nipple cap. Crap. I did not consider this or think to look it over that good, taking it for granted and sort of expecting that these guns should be in reasonably good condition and shape. The paperwork warns that they are in "as is" condition with no warranty to be expected or implied.

    I make every effort to buy from those I know. Or at the least someone who I can drive to with little effort. Anymore buying a used gun is like buying a ham radio, or other piece of electronics. There are crooks everywhere just waiting to suck you in and take your money. Sad but true...

    I'd NEVER sell a bad gun to anyone but there are folks that do and never have a 2nd thought about it.

    These gun auctioneers had and saved ONE pretty brass-parted brand-new HENRY .22 magnum rifle for last, looking nice and bumping up the price, making people stay and wait and bid for it, before quitting in disgust over the junk.
