    Plutôt satisfait de la transaction.
    Seul problème: le ressort de détente est cassé, ce qui n'était pas signalé.

    Response by seller
    Hi
    I´m pleased that you liked the gun.As I have mentioned in the description " The mechanism is not working properly, only arm in one position with finger help, Due to that the fire action is not strong; keep that in mind when bidding"
    I never tried to open it.

    Manca un documento od una iscrizione che certifichino l'età delle pistole. Il cacciavite non penetra nella fessura delle viti.

    Hi.,Sorry but I will answer in English to avoid any possible mistakes with translation. Concerning documents of the guns you have the expertise of Catawiki and the seller that is a clear warranty for you.No mistakes, these are guns from the mentioned period and the invoice is the document you need for legal purposes or other.About the turn screw if you want to return it I will be glad to substitute for one more adapted to the guns.I hope you enjoy this set.Its a good investment!.Best.Vixta

  • Received my item today; Unfortunately there was a small chip ( size of a pea) in one of the guns' barrel section, obviously caused during shipment. I otherwise am very happy with my purchase. Thanks
