    It's a 12/16/22/14. I emailed the fellow, we'll see what happens.

    It always has to happen when I have money I'm trying to save.

    U dunno dude, I can and have disassembled a 1911 down to the hammer spring blindfolded. Once you get the hang of it and as long as you have one without super-tight crosspins, it's easy as pie to pull...

    I don't like American Guns at all. I feel the whole family has a haughty, holier-than-thou vibe and it turns me off as a gun owner and a viewer. Also, I find it funny that a "conservative traditional...

    With the keyhole, I think $500-$1000 is a reasonable guess. Of course, Istanbul K's are subjective and the value is really fine-tuned based on the tone. Some are complex gems, others are better...
