Another head's up...gorgeous 219B Hornet
« on: November 01, 2020, 08:39:24 AM »
My preference is for the earliest Utica 219's, but this one is an absolute gem.

Am I the only one who's noticed all the nice guns coming to market in the last month?  Makes me think lots of people are sadly struggling.

Chris, I look at GB every day.  I find some of them appear to be good buys, some not for various reasons.  I have purchased 45 of these 219/220's for research for my books so there are very few that I don't have one just like or better.  I have purchased the bulk of them off GB.  I do want to caution people to do their research before making a costly purchase.  Especially beware and carefully check high priced guns with more than one barrel.  Be sure the assembly numbers and forearms match.  Thanks for sharing this item with us.

Garnett,

Agree on all points.  I have just been surprised to see several Hornets in one week.  It took me YEARS to find the one I wanted only last year.

I feel like in the last month all kind of good inventory has hit the market.
