When it comes to auctions, there are two things I love to see.
First, an auctioneer who knows very little about an item. Second, an auctioneer who makes life hard for absentee bidders.
Auctioneers likes this are experts at selling items under their real value. That means you can get a great deal.
It looks like a nice gun. I would tell you more about it, but the auctioneer couldn’t tell me a thing about it. He doesn’t even know the length of the barrels. From what I can see, it looks like a mid-grade Daly, probably a Sauer-era gun. It looks like it has a lot of finish, but the wood and barrels may be redone.
Also on on Saturday, 4/17, Park Auctions and Realty Company is having a big gun auction. It’s in Burlington, NC. They have a bunch of decent looking double barrels: Parkers, Foxes, and Ithaca. There’s even a Syracuse Arms side-by-side and an L.C. Smith .410.
