Pawn Shop Circuit: A Victory and a Llama
If Kenny had priced the revolver right, I might have took it home. Kenny had a $275 tag on it, though. I already have a reblued Victory that lacks the US Property stamp. For almost $300, I do not need another. I am, however, in the market for an original finish Victory Model that is in good shape. I would prefer the martial markings, and US Navy stamps too, if possible. This revolver just did not make the cut.
Kenny also had a Llama Comanche revolver that someone had fitted Smith & Wesson target grips to. He was asking $200 for it. That seemed to be about $100 high to me, although I would not have bought the Llama anyway. The Llama had a trigger that was gritty and inconsistent throughout it's arc. Perhaps it could be cleaned up. Kenny asked me what I thought of it, and I simply replied "Not much." I've never owned a Llama, either as a revolver a pistol, but I have heard stories. Whether those stories have any veracity or not does not concern me. I simply consider that I can find a nice used Smith & Wesson for the same amount of money, perhaps less. Thus, the Llama is not a consideration.
I did not have a chance to visit Neil or Dave.
