Not mine. Bridgeport drum(?) Looks to have a little surface corrosion from storage, but not bad overall. Listed under reproductions lol. It does appear to be an original.

The USMC pouches look repro to me and the mags are overpriced IMO. I could be wrong. I buy most of my NIW mags for $50 and under.

I kinda thought it was over priced but I live in a state where they are illegal for being "high capacity mags" so I don't really follow prices on them, as for the mag pouches I wasn't sure if they where repro or not

The magazine pouches aren't reproduction, they are original, but everyone is correct about everything being way overpriced.

I dont see the magazine auction. Probably got pulled by eBay they do not allow HCM sales. The drum might get axed too.

Andrew,

The drum is definitely a WWII United Specialties (v5) drum, not a repro. Rust on the outside could mean rust on the inside, but might be a nice shooter for someone. Id want to see the inside before bidding too much.

I was the high bidder.....

 

I think the chances of it getting pulled are pretty high though

they had grease gun mags listed recently...a forum member grabbed them...a bargain price

 

you can get a mint example of this drum for $450-500 max...i think its close to its value right now... United specialties i think is the most common i see for sale

 

Ebay is slipping on catching stuff

Using the contact option from the mag/pouch auction I emailed the person and mentioned it looked like his auction was pulled and was the drum still available.
He replied that the only thing he had for sale were the mags, neither confirming or denying anything about a drum.
My gyess is he suspected the drum was worth more than his auction might net him and so pulled it before it ended.
Seen this before....a great deal in the works and....poof!

A "Back Door" offer is certainly possible, but the drum was almost at its maximum value for the condition it was in.  Don't know why someone would offer more just to secure the deal, but each to his own if that is what happened.

The way to prevent this is to submit a bid, no matter how low. The auction generally cannot be pulled by the seller once a bid has been tendered.
