Thanks for the condolences, but the gun (an 88XXX carbine) is pretty awful, starting with an in-your-face-bad-patina-match .50-70 hammer, which he absolutely INSISTS is original, because his buddies in the Phoenix/Tempe area have "never questioned it in the 30 years he has been doing show and tell there. I was never looking to buy it - ever - just trying to clarify things for him, after he dared anyone to tell him it wasn't right - and he is one of those "no returns accepted" guys, as well.
