219/220FS alert
« on: August 03, 2016, 10:52:41 AM »
Just FYI, there's a 219 in .22 Hornet (case-colored and scope grooved) with a small scope and 20 guage 220 barrel (mod choke) for sale on GunsAmerica.  Seller is in WA state and the item number on www.gunsamerica.com is #985000094.  Price is $350 for the set, plus $50 shipping.

I don't know this seller, although he has completed several hundred transactions on GunsAmerica, but I thought somebody here might be interested.  If you put the item number into the "search box" at the top of the GA screen, it will take you to this item.

I am a "day late and a dollar short" with this reply.  I feel I must caution against paying a premium price for a gun just because it has two barrels and represented as an original "Utility" gun.  These sets had two barrels with a fitted forearm for each barrel and the assembly numbers on both barrels should match the receiver and stock (under butt plate) numbers.  If the numbers don't match, that is a good indication that a barrel has just been added at some point in time.  If there is only one forearm and the numbers match, then one forearm could have been lost over the years.
