Old Model Single Six with a story!

My best friend, his wife, and me and my wife went to a gun show today in Cave City, KY. Didn't buy a thing. ON the way home he wanted to stop at this gun shop in Elizabethtown, so we did. There I found this old model Single Six convertible, with the box, instruction manual, red felt bag for the extra cylinder, and the original receipt! Even has the wax paper it shipped with. If you notice the receipt it says Sumner's Feed and Hardware. Well, this was the grandfather, and then father, of the man I worked for 7 years at Knob Creek Range. Notice too the original price of $69.50! I just had to have it.

Did you get it for close to the original price?

Congratulations on finding a beautiful non-gun-show treasure.

That looks like a lot of fun. My dream is to buy old guns like this and pay the original sale price for them.

I really like stories like this. We all should be so lucky as to find something that tickles our present fancy yet ties in nicely with our past.
