2). Find a nice
piece of brass about 1 1/2" x 3/4" and stamp it with your favorite "Prison"
"Firearms" manufacturer. Come on-- let your imagination run wild! By all means let the lock sit out in the rain for a few weeks.
3). List it on
one of the "online" auctions. You had better put a reserve on it so the
buyer really thinks it "Must"
be the Real McCoy.
---Oh-- by the way. A similar lock like the plain one below didn't even
get a bid at $15. A similar lock like the Winchester sold for over $300.
Let the buyer beware!
I believe the following locks are imports from India or
Pakistan. All the locks are very similar. The dimensions are approx. 5"
x 3" x 1". Notice how all the locks have 2 Keys. It's hard enough
to find a lock with 1 key let alone 2! That should be your first
clue that something is up. I do believe the locks are old and worn and
have served their purpose well and instead of just tossing them out-- someone
had an idea to turn them into "Fantasy" locks. The ROI is much better than
the high flying "Tech" stocks on the NASDAQ. :-)----- Yes-- I know--
The remark about the "tech" stocks is a little out of date.... but was
current at the time. Not many high fliers anymore..... most have been grounded....or
are under water... :-(

Please contact me if you think additional clarification
needs to be added. If someone has a better scan than the above "Fantasy"
Locks. I would welcome their pictures. This page is not meant to
offend the unsuspecting sellers who buys a reproduction unknowingly and
then resells it. This page will hopefully educate both buyers and sellers
and help to put a stop to the cheap imports that were created ONLY
deceive the unsuspecting beginner collector.
