    Excellent deal on a Pete 80s P-Lip. You should enjoy it very much.

    That's a great deal for a pete p-lip! I love the look of that paneled shank....

    As usual, just check the mortise to make sure all the stain's gone, or you'll get a nasty taste for sure!

    Thanks guys. Peterson wasn't listed in the item description so the usual lot of eBay Peterson lunatics didn't catch it. I just got lucky & stumbled across this one. It never fails to amaze me why a person would pay as much for a used Peterson when they can buy the same pipe new for 0.99$ more. That being said I was totally stoked when I won this one.

    Yes, very good deal if it's in good condition. The pic doesn't show any other angles of the pipe. Hope it is though!

    Well done and a good score at a steal of a price! As Dondi says watch out for that stain's taste it can be truly awful and long lasting, but once you get through that phase you're in business.

    Congratulations again and many happy years with it,

    Gerry

    yah I totally agree with you and I'm pretty sure thats why you slipped away with this price as I'm always doing a search for a pete and everyone I ever see has atleast 6 bids so I usually don't bother bidding cus I can just buy the same pipe for the same price new. Same goes with savi's but I did just luck out last week and won a sherwood for just under 12 bucks which required a last minute sneak bid lol :thumb:

    Congrats on getting such a bargain, gunsmoke! If it smokes half as good as it looks, you'll get years of enjoyment from it!

    I too have a (straight) bulldog Pete Killarney (with conventional button) and it is a fine smoking pipe.
