Danger Will Robinson!

 

Why would anyone sell an MG far under market value?  He could post it on many sites, including GB with a BIN, and sell it for ~$10K in ten minutes.

Looks like someone pointed out the pricing mistake.  His original price was what I have been seeing asked for very nice to excellent pre May DS.

What was interesting about it to me was he had other items that were more market priced.

May have been one of those cut and paste type mistakes.

I have recently stopped buying for one simple reason. I am tired of waiting a year with someone else holding my product.  I think demand will pick back up when wait times go back down. If wait times stay the same or increase, sellers will have a harder time finding buyers.

I don't think it has anything to do with cost. Plenty of cheap or easy money out here.

Transfer as an individual, the times are much faster.  Last suppressor I transferred for a customer was just over five months and that includes the time taken for me to order the suppressor, have it transferred and shipped to my location.  Customer's paperwork was not started until after the suppressor was delivered to me.

My check was cashed June or July for the UZI, MP40 and 2 WH 28's      I will post the minute I get the stamps.  I used my trust.

And dealer to dealer using efile can take 24 hours or thereabouts lately! I purchased 2 21s in the last two months and I was able to see them first hand within 7 days of sending the check. Not bad.

The suppressor I used as an example was the customer's first NFA purchase, went through without a hitch.

ive always got my NFA items exactly when the charts on NFA Tracker said.....follow their graph and when the time comes im within a week of everyone else getting theirs....8x's now ....this past time i was a week or so ahead of the chart

 

sorry to hear about 14 months....hopefully its a suppressor and not a FA....at least for me the suppressors arent a big deal...more of just something different to shoot vs a new gun.....

 

i keep adding to my trust.....i do think the govt. is making trusts painful so you will switch.....cant think of another explanation when looking at the graphs seeing individuals down to 4 months while trusts at 11-12
