Holy S**T!
I last looked at that stuff this morning, it was around $50 and I was disinterested.
This guy in Sweden has all of those 21 actuators - going for $405 evertime. His stuff must be gold plated.
On another note, he usually has a ton of them, so eventually the market may fall away and they become more like what Lionhart quoted... but I'm not holding my breath.

I know what we should do.
We need someone to e-mail the winning bidder and ask why he/she bid that much. Then we can explain what they actually won and the real cost. If we attempt to educate each person it would help to slow down the pace at which the prices are rising.
Well, its a thought. rolleyes.gif

Now there's some crazy guy on there by the name of catnipman trying to sell stuff cheap! What has to be done on this stuff getting out of hand. Just think that if it doesn't get out of hand, I could get the extra parts I need at a reasonable cost! wink.gif

I got an idea......
Everyone ship me your spare parts. I'll take a trip to Sweden and sell them on E-Bay for BIG BUCKS.......
If anyone posts a query on these boards as to the parts actual value, you could all "play it up" bigtime!! laugh.gif

We could all be RICH!!! (well, maybe earn enough to buy a couple pallets of decent .45 ACP??)

maybe not??

Great plan John. Only one minor glitch. Klinton signed an executive order prohibiting the repatriating (reimportation) of U. S. Military gunparts. sad.gif
