Yea, I know its the wrong board, but I can't help myself. Just ran across this gem on the Bowers board. I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but this does seem a little ridiculous.

Must be a documented wedding gift to old Adolf and Eva.

For that price it better have a little German broad named Inga to go with it! Either that or you better get a reach around! No kiss though.

I have already editorialized regarding this particular sale on on the MP-40 Board and on further review of the ad I find it especially interesting to note that the seller uses the terms "none finer!" and "RARE FIND!" as descriptors (along with "original", etc.). Nowhere does the seller use NRA scale or percentage scale terms as is typical for firearms sales.

The sales language used in the ad is typical of terminology used for selling used Camaros, not vintage NFA weapons.

Draw your own conclusions.
