Steve Zihn guns for sale
« on: January 06, 2020, 02:15:54 AM »
Hello to all. I made these 2 guns for a man some years ago, and he is loosing his sight.  I feel very bad for him, but reality is something we can't avoid.  So he has asked me to help him sell the 2 guns as a set.  He may agree to break them up and sell each one separately, but at first he wants to try to sell them together.
Both have hand made stocks. The pistol has one of my hand made barrels. I also made the patch box and side plate on the rifle by hand and the butt cap on the pistol too.
The rifle has a 50 cal swamped Colorain barrel and a Chamber lock.  The pistol has an L&R lock.

The owner wishes all correspondence to go through me and all money transactions too.  I can be contacted at szihn@wyoming.com The price for the set is $5,100 and I pay the shipping to the 48 states.  Any shipments outside the USA or to Alaska or Hawaii will be split with me paying up to $100 in the cost of the shipment and the buyer paying anything over $100.
Payments must be either US Postal Money Orders or cash.

OK, the owner of the 2 guns now says I can sell them individually and break up the "set".

So if anyone is interested in either one, please let me know. He also have a very nice period correct powder horn to sell.

Do You have an idea of separate pricing?

yes, the owner told me to ask $3500 for the rifle alone and buyer pays shipping.
 $1500 for the pistol, and again the buyer pays shipping.
 $135 for the horn and the buyer pays shipping.

The first price for the whole set was $5,100 and we pay shipping to anywhere the continental USA, and up to $100 for shipping outside the continental USA and the balance over $100 paid by anyone in Alaska, Hawaii or any other country.

The pistol barrel is one I made.  It is 7-7/8" long.  (Just where it finished up after lapping and shaping.)
