this may seem like a crackpot question but has anyone ever seem a needle gun for sale and if so for what price?

due to antiquity I don't expect to ever find one but they look so beautiful from the pictures I've seen.

i saw one on gunbroker for around the same price. and in a pismo beach gun shop they had a carbine for like $4,000 and original ammo. the owner said he had a lot of ammo for it a few years back and shot it with his buddies and they had to wear a welding mask and wipe it with windex after everyshot due to the gas

Somebody on Gunboards bought a carbine last summer for $3,500. Everyone agreed it was a very good price for a very nice rifle. They're not cheap, not common, but still pretty awesome.
