Gunbroker is a seller friendly auction. Buyer problems are not well addressed. So I do not find it impossible to see a listing altered or withdrawn if the seller wants to do it. It is buyer beware and do your homework.

Actually there is no mechanism I could find to shut a GB auction down once there's bid. I tried to email them to do it, typically, no response.


My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.

So, John- you are NOT either a baseball nor a sports trivia fan I take it. FYI- the "run with the Fox" has nothing to do with A>H> Fox shotty guns, it's a private joke from my USMC days-- we had some special nicknames for our USMC buddies-- "The Tennessee Turtle Tracker", well, you and I didn't serve together, so why go on? But baseball-that's one of the things that made America great, when the Dodgers were in Brooklyn, The Yankees in the Bronx, and Joltin'Joe was bangin' Marilyn Monroe--RWTF

"Vintage, turn-of-the-century shotgun. It has a 28” Damascus-steel barrel. ‘Syracuse Arms Company, Syracuse, New York’ stamped on the top of the left barrel, and ‘New Twist’ stamped on top of the right barrel. The number 1 stamped on the gun barrel indicates grade. 1s were a lightweight model and produced prior to 1897. Gun production likely ceased altogether around 1905. ‘24722’ is shown on the trigger guard strap and beneath the detachable forearm. All original parts. See photos for detail and proof markings."

As is demonstrated by this current dealer posting for a humble low grade example of the Syracuse Arms double gun; if you're a GB buyer you'd be wise to do your homework in advance of any purchase; and if you're a seller the gun should be represented honestly. As regards the above gun I assumed the seller didn't know any better, so I sent him a private mail several days ago to inform him as to the accurate description of his gun; which as of just now has not been changed, so this dealer clearly doesn't care. This gun is clearly marked as a Grade O gun and is not a Grade 1 as alleged. No one knows exactly what the "1" stamp on the barrel tubes denote; but that stamp most likely denotes a frame size or barrel weight. This gun was not produced prior to 1897 as alleged; its serial number and production features dates this gun to 1902/03 production. And its promotion as "all original parts" is also incorrect as Syracuse never placed caps over round knob grips. This cap looks like it came from a Syracuse era Lefever; is crudely fitted and looks totally out of place. It's a pity that whoever winds up with this Syracuse will be getting something other than what he was thinking he'd purchased, especially AFTER the dealer was notified what he should do to correct his listing.

I get all that. But why follow Ed's stupid look-at-me off-topic remark about baseball and insert it into Liverwort's thread seeking input about Gunbroker?
You've still got some legitimacy here, unlike Ed, so why tarnish it?

One of my best Marine buddies was from Lebanon, TN. Never called him by his name, just hillbilly.

Both of us are fans.

Still one of the best concerts I ever went to. David Allen Coe opened for him at UNC-Willmington.
