Hi,

 

Nice old firearm.  Not that rare IMHO.  I'm aware of 4 M6 with lower S/N's than that.  (Look closely at the reference section :) )  I think the starting price has one too many zeros.

 

Either way, good to see they are getting to the market.  The market will decide.

 

Enjoy,

 

Grasshopper

I recently bought a theee dihi one from Ruben Mendiola for $6800. Granted it's not mint but I love it. I successfully converted a thompson mag and plan on converting more. It really was that hard.

mine is better shape for $6,300 and it sat for months at $7500 on a dealer website...the one before mine sold for $5,500 in a week on Sturm...

 

i think the seller is mixed up and thinks he has a Colt Thompson...and even then its over priced by a few thousand.....or he is leaving himself $38,000 room to bargain?

 

glad to see another one on the market though.....seems like 2-3 a year show up somewhere for sale

 

now where are those parts kits?

 

he doesnt know 50% of them made have a 3 digit number....ha

 

 

 

question: what is the highest serial # known? mine is #1243.....there are supposed to 2,000 made but ive never seen #1900....i think i saw a #15xx somewhere

and i didnt think yours would sell quick either.....so im afraid to pick on this one too much...i might be proven wrong again...just needs the right person at the right time...in the past these guns have not sold as quick as yours did....you just happen to be in the market for one....its an odd/rare gun and it takes a special person to want one.....the Mac book is what got me interested....in the back of my mind i always wanted one....when i lost the $5,500 one i knew where the market was and i offered $6,000 on the other one available....still kicking my self for not buying the $5,500 one...it sat for 4-7 days and by the time i decided it was gone....it was on GB for $7k+ i think for a few weeks before that...i noticed it the whole time.....

 

yours will just be known as the Patina M6 as i can be known for being the bully over it

Yes, in the MG world you either pay much now or later.  The days of getting it at a steal are all but gone.  If a good transferable is close to market price and I want it, then I pull the trigger.  10 or 20 years from now it's be worth a lot more for my kids and / or retirement if I can bring myself to sell any.

ended at $6500.....pretty much what they are selling for....curious if it will come back again at $45,000 reserve again....im actually surprised it went as high as $6,500 since other than Rubens the ones ive seen tend to sit for a while

Someone just bid $10,000 for this. Holy crap

Mine is in better shape. As a % its my best appreciating machine gun. Up 55% in 10 months

I may have to sell mine and cash in when I get my stamp.

Wonder if some one bought in to the rare 3 digit serial number or thought they were bidding on a Thompson

Sad thing is that it probably wont sell due to an ignorant seller.
