Pawn Shop Find

Hit a few local Paw Shops and found a beauty! A 981T was sitting behind the counter and wrapped in this ugly camo tape. At first the kid working said it was not for sale and belonged to the owner. I left and hit a few more stores… but dropped back in about 2 hours later (30min before closing) and guess who was there… the owner. He said he’d take $200 for it, I quickly showed him that I could get a “new” one from Academy for $199. He said make an offer, I came back with $100… he laughed and said no-way but offered $150, I countered with $125. SOLD!

Not sure I attached the photos correctly.

It looks like it could be a diamond in the rough! With a little elbow grease you can probably have a nice looking gun. Good job and good luck getting it cleaned up!
