Dad Gum!

It's hell to be poor.

I'd love to have one of those on my rack. Wonder what gauge it is?

Five feet long...that's like as big as me! Well, not really...but it's still big! Do you really think they'll get more than 100 orders?

Unless it's got a load similar to a 40/70 Government round, then it would probably blow your hand off.

Try looking for a modified 30 caliber pistol to take 30-30 rounds if you want something similar in power. Also, a .500 S&W would be nice too.

I think it's a fantastic idea. I just wish I had enough dough to cover that price tag. That would easily take top place in any collection. Such a shame I will never own one. Oh, and yes, I think they will get 100 orders, easily.

Its japan its not going to be a live gun. Its only a model and a damn expensive one at that. that kind of dough one could get a Full Automatic Transferable Uzi if you lived in a state that allows it.

Nice looking toy, but only for boys and girls with more money than sense. Be interesting to see if they sell them all though. Wink I'd be more interested in a working model of her Mehve. I could use one to get me over the traffic jams at times. Smile

That looks like a very bad repro of a flintlock rifle.
