THE SEARCH IS ON 2nd model Dragoon.....
« on: February 17, 2017, 08:19:03 PM »
Was looking to get one of these a year ago or least 4 months ago, until
my search for a Colt 1861 Civilian yelded one, then a couple more on my
want list came up. Those put the Dragoon on hold, but as it goes ....... I want a Dragoon.
Midway has,a so called clearance for a Uberti at $350 shipped.
Should I go for it or wait ........ (l"

Go for it.  You might not get a better chance any time soon.

Fingers is right,  $350 for a new one from Midway is a sure thing.   Most so called new Dragoons on GunBroker start the bidding at $350 or more.    With Midway you know your dealing with an established reputable company.     You never know what you might get from BiilyBob's Pawn shop on GunBroker.

Fingers , how is your new aquiring going ?
Mike, that is why I'm reluctant to buy through auctions. BillyBob ain't reliable.
You guys are making easy for me  L@J

Hewy,

What are you thinking?  If I were you I'd call back and cancel the order before it's shipped.  You probably won't like it.  But if it's already been shipped I guess you'll be stuck with it....

I'm teasing of course, I love Dragoons and you got a great buy.  Post some pics when it arrives.

I'm afraid the only help you can expect from this bunch, Chris, is choosing one over another.  Once you succumb you are doomed forever.    ($! ($!

As an aside - I've never had a problem buying from Gunbroker - everything I've ever gotten from a seller there has been exactly as described - or better.  The newly obtained Garibaldi Dragoon is an example of much better than described.  With that said, I ask questions and pass on iffy descriptions and lack of pictures.

You are right Ken, I have succumbed. If fact I'm following your method of rearranging your collection,
by "thinning out" to make room for others.
That is what I'm doing, that is selling off a few and buying the same amount in different types.
Changin dollars as it were. Although I have spent a little more than takin in.  *6' I got the business
sense back wards ." Buy low sell high "
But having fun. )lI
I do like them Colts.

         V see my statement below "better to be gettin........."

I believe but now .  .  .  .  .  .   well .  .  .  .  we're just splitting hairs now !!!!! ) 
  Don't mean to be so " nonchalant" about it but  .  .  .  .  .  .  CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!  YER JUST GONNA LOVE IT !!!!!!
 I could go on but  it'd start to sound like drivel  .   .  .  .  .  people 'ud start talking about me and such  but  .  .  .  .  well .   .  .  .  I'm glad you came to your senses.!! Now you can help me convince all the " non believers " of how Colt made some men alittle more "equal" than others !!!! .  .  .  .   shhhhhhhhh .  .  .  .  . never tell um how you really feel .  .  .  .  never .  .  .
