Customer Question
I need to talk...

I need to talk to an expert on an 1849 Colt pocket pistol. I prefer to call you.

Expert's Assistant: How can the Gunsmith help you with your firearm? Please tell me everything you can so the Gunsmith can help you best.

Have gun price books but I am not sure if the gun auctly sells for that price. Also the gun is hardly used. maybe never been fired and it has a Ivory handle, original colt box from 1849 with an ivory plate where you can lock it and the original bullet mold, precussion caps, powder horn, bullets paperwork. I need to know how much this increases the value of the gun. The gun is perfect except for 2 little pieces of solid gold that is over the barrel and underneath the gun where the loading lever is there is about 5% of the guns gold that has come off. This is why I wanted to call and they said that I could instead of paying you to sit there and wait for me to type all of this and more thank you, Stephen

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Gunsmith should know?

I thought I could call???
