Yep, definitely a scam. I saw his Perazzi MX28 listing and I knew I had seen it the gun before. He is using photos of Dawson's Doubles listings as his own. Not sure who has the Parker, but I'm sure it's not him. Be careful who you do business with.

That seller “Mgimmey” is sure one to stay away from. Of course, he could change his name anytime he needs to.

I got it on good authority that the fake seller is actually a crotchety old guy in New England with a white beard that used to be the editor of some lesser known gun rag , think the magazine was for some colectors organization or some such nonsense called something or other pages . Definitely the type to stay the hell away from

Apologies but that was just to good for me to let go !

I stay away from Gunbroker now unless it is a seller I know. It was fun while it lasted though

Josh, is $2136.00 your best price? It's about over for gunbroker unless they take care of these situations.

Josh, I'm sure you have reported this scam to Gunbroker so why have they not killed the auction?
On a side note, why does the letter say it was ordered with 24 inch barrels, and then a few lines down it says the barrels are 28 inches? An error by Mark Conrad, or were the barrels listed in the stock book as 28" and shortened to 24" to fill the order?
