  1. Yes, I'm decluttering the man cave a bit.  I bought this some years back to replace one I had many years before that.  A very nice takedown recurve marketed by Browning, circa the 80's I believe.  I've never had a string for it, so that is probably an indication it's time for it to go.  I was told it was a 55# when I bought it, but again, I've never strung it and the spec decal is unmarked.  Anyway.  $165 shipped, no FFL required.  First I'll take it posted here gets it.  Thanks.









  2. 4 5/8" Stainless.  Beautiful burl grips, Belt Mountain base pins fitted, beveled cylinders, lighter springs and jeweled hammers.  Some handling marks as can be seen in the pics, being SS, that all could be polished out.  No boxes/papers, delivered as pictured for $2250 $2150 shipped to your FFL, first I'll take it posted it here gets it.  Thanks.








  3. 3 7/8" barrelled Birdshead.  Excellent, unmolested stock configuration/condition, it has some light scratches on the trigger guard and grips(please see the pics).  This is the full size gun that can handle the hotter loads  No box/papers, delivered as pictured for $1050 shipped to your FFL  PM for availability, listed in multiple places. Thanks.

    I searched and did not find that list. I did a little search on you, got your real name, your home address, I think your wife's name, a couple corporations you have been associated with, and a couple possible phone numbers.


    But no email address. Which is a bit surprising, I usually can find more considering how many bread crumbs you have left behind. Almost everyone leaves breadcrumbs behind.

    Thanks for the feedback.  I don't expect to be completely "under the radar", too many public records and I'm not a tech hermit.LOL

    Please!!  It's still happening.   Another member has been scammed by outsiders (not even Wire members) pretending to be the seller and having the payment sent to them via Paypal 

    Communicate by PM.   No one can see your private messages except you and the seller.   


    Check your public profile and delete your contact information if you have added it.   

    Don't put any of these in a post:

    • email address
    • phone number
    • address

    Take these basic steps to protect yourself!

    I don't have my email on my profile.  I've searched my name a couple different ways and the only way my email shows up that I can find, is on the TG Wire, from Rubys listing of all the TG's.  Can non-TG's see that?  I ask, because I posted an I'll take it on a listing and received the email below.  BEFORE the PM I sent (with my email address) was opened.  The grammar was flagging me, so I sat on replying and shortly after the real seller contacted me.  This one baffles me a bit.



  6. Bought for a project that I'm using a different gun for.  Lightly used (pretty minty for an original model) Ruger SS Vaquero 5 1/2".  Lighter mainspring/trigger spring and slight filing of the front sight, otherwise unmolested.  No box, comes as pictured.  $950 shipped to your FFL.  First I'll take it posted here gets it.  Thanks.

    I have two S&W 625s, and I found your post interesting.  I have several other S&Ws and have always found their customer service to be top notch. What happened? You can answer via PM if that makes you more comfortable.

    My 625 was a limited edition Performance center gun.  The frame cracked below the barrel where it threads in.  No "magnum" loads, mostly factory ball type ammo with some occasional "average" EDC ammo and shot relatively little at that.  They could have replaced the frame, as they make the PC 327, same frame, same material, but would not.  CS was contacted several times and their response was always just "it's one of these guns we'll send in replacement or we'll send your broken one back, have a nice day".  They wouldn't even do it for a charge(the gun was my fathers and had some sentimental value).  After much hemming and hawing I took a 327 in "replacement" from their list of guns they'd replace it with.  It came with a improperly indexed barrel and shot "off" and had horribly fit grips, making me wish I had kept the broken gun and looked for a donor N frame to put the light cylinder and short barrel on.  Anyway, the 327 went back for repair and was promptly sold when it finally came back.  I've had a lot of their guns over the years, several SS framed 625's, 29's, 627's, misc auto's and still have a 31, 49, 41 and 17-8.  Their CS was great in the 80's and 90's, my experience with this one convinced me they don't need my business.
