Just wow. Like a concussion grenade just went off by me ear. wow. Bushhog, can you give us details. What do you mean by waiting? How Did conversations with Taffin affect something like a variable such as barrel length? Where did that sight come from? If I'm digging into your business you can tell me

WD40 will eat it's way out of a can, yet people spray it on their guns
It's not really that complicated and I guess I did leave out some important info.
First off this is one of the buntline guns Doug Turnbull was doing off some of the last USFA guns he had. They offered them for quite a while and got poor response. I was told I got one of the last ones.
I got a wild hair after reading John T's article on buntlines and saw that there were in fact 10" guns built originally by Colt. After that I PM'd him and we went back and forth a few times. He indicated that he had in fact ordered a couple with 10" barrels.
That was about all it took cause I figure he might just know a thing or 2. I ordered the gun about 6 months ago and it finally came. It's been done a while but it got done waaaay ahead of schedule and I needed to get my ducks in a row. Turnbull was great about working with me.
Unfortunately I think I may have to let it go...Gov. deal got me a little uneasy....
I got in touch with Turnbull this AM and they told me the parts were Uberti parts that came through USFA. I asked the folks at Turnbull this if they were USFA parts when I was ordering it and the told me they were. Guess they were...SORTA'
I'm pretty miffed about this..feeling that I was mislead. For heaven's sake do you have to be a sleuth to order a gun from a reputable company? I asked!
Only good news is that the folks at Turnbull said they would refund my $$ so gun is going back to Turnbull for a refund unless somebody wants it.
