    As I see it that's all that's left. Did he buy a fake or have the fake made by his command. Same for Sweaty Ben's pile of fakes he sold. Bought that way or commissioned? Sad

    The question is, when did Hercules sell it? I seem to remember it wasn’t that long ago.


    The tragedy is since they ruined the original front band it can never be returned to its legit bolt mismatch status. It’s ruined.

    And that’s the part that gets me: a legit bolt mismatch, an honest rifle, has been ruined just to try to squeeze a few more bucks out of it.

    It was this past summer I believe- and I know he sold it in its original state (as posted in in the picture reference) because I almost bought it. So very likely it can be figured out who dunnit

    Hopefully a chain of custody can be established so we can figure out when the bolt was faked.

    Guys, when you post these discussions please upload the picture evidence and screenshots. Otherwise this thread is generally worthless as a heads up and learning tool over time. It could be made worthless by deleting the post or links at the other site. If these things are called out they need to be documented here and saved. Post before and after, post the screenshots of the ad. Document and support the opinion. Tks, HB
