Mazo,   no I don't want to know.   $300 to $500 seems to be what the asking price is for anything decent.   

Hawg,   you're making me depressed.

 I bought the Elsie in the late 80's and the Lancaster in the early 90's if that makes you feel any better.

Not much better but a little.   I suppose I could have bought them that cheap back then but I wasn't thinking about guns at the time.

I doubt it. I bought the Elsie from somebody that didn't know what he had and the Lancaster was listed on gunbroker as a wall hanger because one lock didn't work and the stock was all loose and wiggly. Less than an hour after I got it the lock was working and the stock was nice and snug.

Hawg, the seller's honesty (and lack of knowledge) probably contributed a lot to your getting a deal on the gun.

Probably but nobody else wanted to take a chance on it.

This is my old N.R.Davis & Son 12 gauge that I still shoot low brass in occasionally......




every single part  on this gun carries this lonely single digit serial number




If memory serves, that's a black powder only gun isn't it?
