  4. Yes it is. Im going to go look at it at my LGS whom has it on consignment. Not sure of its age or usage but in the picture it has some wear. It's a Dakota, Not a Dakota 2. I like the engraving on it. I have never owned this brand so not sure on quality. I'll keep you all posted. ;)

    It's pre 1993, Jager is Italian, even though it sounds German, and good quality, they are steel, not zamack or anything, only the grip frame is brass, so as long as the gun is still tight, it's ok.

    Some info:
    "Dakotas from 1962 – 1968 have no safety mechanism. Revolvers from 1969 – 71 or thereabouts generally have a hammer wheel safety. Revolvers after that have a base pin safety. On Jagers, this is an odd "twist" base pin rather than the “Swiss” two notch pin that became common on Italian SAA replicas"

    The engraved model you posted came in a wooden box, and cost $175 in the early '70's

  8. Thanks for the info Ajole, appreciated. Not sure what the difference between the 2 are except for barrel length and engraving but, i looked online and the new ones go for about 460.00 according to thier www. The one pictured above has a 5 1/2 inch barrel i can get for 365.00 not including DRO's ect... The one they advertise on there site is a 4 3/4 inch Barrel for 460.00 without the engraving..

  9. Google is your friend! LOL

    After some searching, I found this, Now according to this the 5.5 barrel is a .357 not a .45LC. So, i will have to make a call to get that info straight.

    Yup, Italian company.

    I used to own a Jager AK 22 imported by Mitchell Arms. That little rimfire was well built and really accurate. Real wood and steel and actually looked like a real AK47 from a distance.

    Traded it to a guy for a race built '84 Honda XR500 with a blown tranny in '98. The suspension and engine top end internals were worth at least three times the value of the gun.

    The bike I used the parts on is long gone, and if I hadn't done the deal I'd still have the rifle to shoot.

    I've given up trading and selling guns that I own and actually like. Too many regrets.
     

  15. Same here. Never again.
     
  16. Update!

    So, what happened as i knew was going to happen did in fact happen as it usually always happens when i go to my LGS.

    Yep,
    Off consignment hold the 8th, paper work Dro's etc.. today. Then released from jail the 18th. Oh yeah baby, This piece is purty nice!!
