Upon further review I read some stuff on armslist in regards to scams......I am walking away and not taking the change. From what I know Gunsinternational and gunbroker are much more reliable.
Thanks for knocking some sense into my thick skull.

if your in the area....there is no harm offering to pick up the gun in person....and make sure its in a decent neighborhood....or meet in a rural McDonalds parking lot.....I wouldn't send money to anyone listing on armslist....

I'd suggest Walmart, everyone carries in walmart...
Interesting......talked to him and told him my concerns in an email etc.etc..then sent him to take a picture of the gun using today's newspaper. Have not heard back from him. Thanks for the idea. Without all of you I would have been scammed. Thanks for your insights. It is very much appreciated.

You could have his end completed through an FFL holder and correspond with him. It would add to the expense but make the deal more secure. Short of driving and face to face, I don't know of anything else that might help. Good Luck!

He sent me a picture with a flyer and his address on it. Seems legit to me after all. Any thing I should do to protect myself?!
You are a big boy now, you pays your money and takes your chances. I take it you are going to meet the fellow face to face?
Then go ahead, if you have to have shipped to you, remember the photos are a long way off and not very good, and it looks to me like it has a hell of a lot of drop at heel.
If that doesn't bother you, no problem.
Personally, I would look more into that Hunter Arms gun, seems to be in much better shape, and coming from a man who lives by working with shotguns.
