Hi All, 
    I'm going to sell this Snider Rifle that I acquired back in January . A full discussion of this Rifle can be read in the Snider forum dated 20 January 2018 titled " My New Snider MK II 3 Banded Rifle Arrived Today. There are plenty of pictures there as well. It is in really nice condition, the problem is it needs a correct extractor.
I acquired it from Lodgewood in a trade, he had it listed at $1100, I traded him an original 1861 US Colt Rifle I had paid $1000 for last year.
     Because of the extractor issue, I'm asking $750 delivered in the US. The only thing that will not be included that is in the pictures is the nipple cover and chain. My loss on this is someone else's gain. I will take PayPal (friends and family) payment on it and also a Postal money order. If MO ,I don't want this to drag out , payment must arrive in 7 days from purchase. I have put some photos up here, many more are on that discussion thread. Message me or email me at mboyd05@hotmail.com if interested.

That is truly a shame as you have a nice rifle and were happy with it.
Are you sure you can't find someone to weld up the back of the extractor and you can file it to fit? Might have to case harden it but I do not know for sure. Cheaper than losing on the sale.

I found another recently, so I'm going to let this one go. It is a shame, but , hopefully someone will notice it's a great deal.

Any "reasonable " offer would be considered as it is going to Gunbroker and Gunboards tomorrow.

Still available, but headed to the other sites, surprised no one grabbed it here, oh well.
