Happens all the time. The bargain-basement prices are interpreted as "junk;" raise the price a bit and it becomes "good used stuff." Same thing happened with some brand of Scotch whiskey, Cutty Sark IIRC. However gun show stuff is a tad different from asking $35K for a BAR clone, especially after the market for it had already been set at $27K. Remember that genuine Marlin-Rockwell with the plugged barrel that sold recently at Cowan's for $29.5K out the door? This guy's $35K starting price is beyond delusional. The $40K BIN price qualifies as "extremely aspirational."
