    Good luck, hope your search does not run the price up crazy.

    Do it again around hunting season in the fall when stuff like that changes hands more often.
    Flyers at a local gun show might be an option and talking to the local pawn detectives to see if perhaps it was pawned at some point as that has to be reported to the police by the pawn shops.

    Good luck. Gun folks are good people.

    Thank you all for your replies and ideas. We plan to continue attending local gun shows and asking around. I'll post the fliers and talk to local pawn shops as well. The search will continue.

    Best of luck.

    Too bad that many folks are so opposed to completing a simple bill of sale/receipt, one maybe would have helped in an instance like this. Anyway, hopefully you will be able to track it down and whomever owns it now will be willing to part with it for a reasonable price.

    Of course, if the current owner hears of your search, I am pretty sure whoever has it will check under the butt plate for a hollowed out stock to look for whatever treasure might be hidden within it.:)

    San Antonio!
    By chance did the gentleman in Boerne mention which gun show he sold it at? A date might help as well...

    I will see what I can find out and post it here. He said that he had heart surgery last year and has trouble remembering things prior to that. He said he’s sure he sold it sometime mid to late 2018, but couldn’t remember much more.
