I got the chance to buy both a Colt Derringer set in a Colt “book” case, nickel, ivory (not genuine) grips, as well as a wooden cased edition with the Colt logo, lined with pale gold cloth containing a pair of Colt 22 Frontier Scout Buntlines, also nickel, walnut grips. $1300 takes both. I think I am okay with that.
Change my mind...

You did well on that deal. They look good to me. Enjoy.
I "think" I did. I don't think I stole them or anything though. Those are gonna require some research, me thinks... The little Buntlines are sooo clean, with that softer nickel finish, dreamy...

Hey! I should go buy a pair of Bulldog Brand Genuine Cordura Nylon Multi Attach Holsters and rock BOTH of 'em as mah new open curry pieces, whatdaya think? Huh? Huh? George?
Or not.

My gun shop has the same set of Colt buntline 22 cal. in Nickle with wood box for $1,400.00.
Both are perfect and unfired.

Well, I see a turn line on one of these, very faint, but it's there. Hey though, no turn line on the little Derringers!
Still, I am in lust with these new additions (I say lust, because fundamentally, they're not my kinda gun, so long term relationship with a safe queen that never gets out to put out? Not likely, but for now...)

It would be crass as all get out to refinish the display case, huh?

I've seen a lot of those Colt derringer sets sell for between $200-300. "King and Queens" sets. For the love of me though I don't know why they bring that much. Have even read recommendations not to shoot because of the low quality of the frame metal. But those Buntlines sure are nice! A nicely done refinish of that case couldn't
hurt.
