    If you don't know anything about it I can tell you this.

    It looks like a semi auto drilled and taped for a scope and came from somplace in Kansas.

    Other than that more pics would be useful.

    :D:DShould we meet you may smack me upside the head with a ball bat or something. I have it comin':rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Let us know what you learn.

    It may be a gun turned out by some kind of gunsmith school????

    It may be one of those antique road show finds..........

    Ok, now things are making more sense.

    It's a gunthat some one used to learn or to demonstrate the abilityto do fancy work. I'd say it's quite a piece. If it could be documented to the point where the craftsman/men were identified and they become collectible, which they may already be, it is a real find.

    1 of 25, where are the other 25. A search and acquire would be a good collector's thing. Then when ya got'em all........who knows.

    I'd put that thing in a glass case and milk it for all glory possible with friends and neighbors then when the Antiques Road Show comes by your town you could see if you make to a TV spot.:)
