It's a show alright, I even put a couple guns on Gun Broker I didn't care much about,,cause it's so crazy, price wise. Sold the Sagia 308 @ 900 and will have a Egyptian somewhat dressed up going on this week. We'll see what that fetches. Hell If people want to pay the prices they are for that type gun,,,,, hell ya I'll sell mine. You Bet !! Once the AK sells,, I'll put the mags up too,, at what I'd call crazy prices, but less than there fetching from others. I just don't get the panic buying eaither,, but being somewhat a business man I won't let the opportunity pass,, I'm no fool. I did buy them as an investment after all,, just never thought it would get crazy like this though.
On the flip side ,,, I sure have found some real nice bolt guns coming out of the closet at real reasonable prices. I've gotten some killer deals lately on them. I'll recondition them and try them out,, the really good ones I'll keep, and the others I'll turn those over this fall to deer hunters and more than likely make a couple hundred on each and save them bucks over a regular shop's prices. And still give good deals. Got a pristine Turkish Mauser like brand new and no import marks a couple weeks ago that had been in someones closet for ever and they were asking 75 bucks for it,,,,,,,sold !!! I had that one 2 days and I sold it for 6 times what I paid for it,, wish deals like that came around every day !!!!! I almost kept that one, but the margin was to good.
I've been selling off some of the high demand stuff I have,, like "clips",,,, LMAO,,,,and a couple AK platforms I've had around for a long time and picking up 2-3 other guns for what I've sold a single AK platform gun for. Hell for what I sold that Sagia for , I picked up a nice Springfield 06 sporter,, a EX cond Baretta 84F 380, and a new Petta Colt S.A. replicia, case hardened ,5 1/2 " barrel revolver in 357Mag,, all for what I sold that one gun for,, and still had enough for a six pack! I didn't even like the Sagia and had been looking for an excuse to move it. Done !!
I feel a bit guilty but,,,I was happy and I guess the new owner is happy as a clam too,,, so what ever floats your boat I guess.
