    It looks like it has never been fired.  Small nick in the grip.

  2. Getting rid of guns I no longer use or need.  All payment is USPS money orders.  Shipping CONUS.


    SPF Olympic TT, Chinese model of the 1930's Walther target pistol.  22 LR, with wooden case, 1 magazine, and counter weight.  Cool gun, but my eyes aren't good enough to use it properly anymore.

    $300 shipped.


    Charter Arms Pitbull in 45 ACP.  Bought it on a whim, don't use it.  With case.  Had a light hammer strike when I bought it new.  Shipped to Charter Arms and they tuned it up nicely.  Not more than 50 rounds through it.

    $425 shipped.

  3. Original 1889 vintage, cut down barrel, bore too big to cut threads for a choke.

    The favorite local shotgun targets were 2" and 3" steel pipes that you had to knock over.

    60 grains wouldn't do it. Ended up with 83 grains black with a modified shot cup to keep it together. Worked great and everybody on the posse felt the boom!

  4. Im going to try both .

    But I think the shorter shell with the roll crimp,

    Will make things go a little smoother.


    That depends on your loads. I found out that 83 grains of black power and 1-1/8 oz of shot jarred the gun so much that a roll crimped shot card would pop out. Ever try to work your '87 with a receiver full of #8 shot?

  5. If it is an original make sure you have a screw driver with you and check your screws. I shot one for a few years, and almost lost a couple of the screws from the receiver.

    I did lose a screw from an original about 12 years ago. It was between stages, and I spent the entire lunch break covering the ground with a borrowed 5 lb magnet (thanks Fiddletown). Finally found it in time to shoot the afternoon stages.

    Original screws were custom fit, off the shelf ones need to be fitted. The new guns have standard screws (I know this because I'm a slow learner).
