Here is a photo of another rare one.  This an Alaskan Guide Special which a few of you guys are lucky enough to own. What is cool about this gun in addition to having serial number 3 is the additional matching barrel assembly with a Burris scope. The barrel assembly has the same matte titanium nitride finish as the AGS.  

I love the shrouds with Dan Wesson's signature.  Very cool gun!

What does anyone know about Palmer manufacture of Alaska Guide specials (mid-90's & not necessarily marked with Alaskan Guide special as the ones out of Norwich.)??

Are they pre-production, prototypes, or just an early run?

Thanks very much.

Those were an early run, there was one on Gunbroker recently with a rather high starting bid price, not sure if it sold.

There's one on Gone-broker right now where the starting bid was $2,499.  He claimed it as an unfired gun but you can clearly see the barrel is full of copper fouling and there's a gas-cut on the top strap.  He did get one bid at that price, so it'll sell here pretty quick.  Somebody is mighty desperate for a AG 445 to bid that price....

 

EDIT...bid is now up to $2,650...here's a link....
