Hi everyone, Recently picked up the handgun in the subject block. The condition is about 98%. I am looking for the following info.The approx. value of the piece, A starting load for test fireing, and am looking for the stock attachment that was made for the piece. I have found out that the gun was custom handmade by Bob Tingle (deceased) in Shelbyville, Ind. about 50-60 years ago. It appears to be one of his early models as the serial number is under 20. The barrel is about 8 inches long and the receiver is brass. If anyone has the stock for sell I would work it out on the auction side. Any and all info. will be greatly appreciated, Thanks and God Bless, Woody
