yeah that guy is a real jerk. i was selling a T-2 paratrooper that was mint (not yours big ed) once and he wanted to buy it. he had two garbage mismatched ones with no rods on his table for $1600 but only offered me $1000 for my mint, matching, rifle with rod and AA sights. i told him he can stick it.

the guy we are talking about has his shop in the newyork/new jersey area and i think his business is called the yankee something or other. hes an older guy with lots of unique stuff. thought he had jimmy cagne's broomhandle at one time or another....or so he said.

i dont care what he does with the guns he has after he buys them. but when he does sell them, he should not raise the price $150 more than what is on the tag. thats what had me pissed at him. he made up some lame excuse about how his tags were old and the guy he has do them didnt get a chance to edit them. well, if that were the case, he could have taken the tag off or changed it himself before placing the rifle on the sale table. then when he offered to buy a rifle from me at 50% of what he would ask, that made me mad too. i know hes a dealer and he has to make a living, but he wont be making anything off of me. i had another experience with a local dealer who gave me the shaft on a pistol that he told me an outright lie that it was a vet bring back, only i came to find out it was a russian capture that was imported before it was law that they be marked. same outcome....dishonest people dont get my hard earned dollar. those are the "facts" about why i dont trust/deal with him.

for the record, i never said he renumbered anything. i do know for a fact that he was selling the rifle and scope set as matching. apparently someone bought the rifle and the story. as far as his other stuff, when i know someone misrepresents something and is not trustworthy....all of his items come under question. its kind of a shame because he does have some rare stuff. kind of like ebay....we hate it, but we love it at the same time.

yeah he has some odd ways about him. i too noticed that his stuff gets beat up the longer he has it. i guess going from show to show really hurts his merchandise. much like you Mike, my cash is spent befor ei get to gunshows in the local area as well.
