Custer Era Crap Shoot

Dick, I enjoyed your letter about the Custer era carbine #17WXY. I think I saw the carbine online sometime ago, and I could not believe it! I would venture to say over half of the Custer era carbines are fake. I have bought a couple at online auctions, where I know its a total crap shoot, but if you have the right book and ask the right questions, sometimes you come out ahead. I have bought one good one, and also one bad one, which I sent back. I bought my last one last week, #35492, and it's arrival is just like waiting for Xmas. But for the price of $1,500, I could not resist. "BUY IT NOW", Jim
