    A good friend/neighbor has a matched pair of nickel Pietta black powder pistols he needs to sell. An old friend of his is going into a rest home and has given my neighbor the guns to sell. Would there be any interest here? They appear to be un-fired, chambers are clean and shiny.

    This isn't my ad, but this is the same gun, grips an all.

    I'll put these up on NWFA for him if anyone shows interest. There's also a MASSIVE monster of a .44-.45 that says "Texas Ranger" in gold letters on the barrel that will be for sale too.

    Thanks for any input!

    Mike

    I am sort of interested, did he have a price in mind?

    I've seen prices now after some research in the $225.00-$250.00 range for unfired. I'll need to talk to him, maybe he'll consent to a "Take both get a break" sorta thing. One of the links I was reading stated that they're no longer available.

    Okay....I'm not a collector, but I would likely shoot one and save the other if I got both, can't say without knowing the cost

    I'll ping you when I get the ad up and give you first shot, this afternoon hopefully. I've got to wait for the neighbor to bring them from way over, next door. :)
