A New World Indoor Record For Asking Price!
Posted 14 July 2004 - 05:51 PM
I've been watching the price bitching now for six months, or longer. In that time, the too expensive M1s have increased 20-30%.
Folks, they aren't going to get any cheaper, sorry. I sold my M1 a while back and really regret the sale.
It went for $8k and I thought that was rediculous. Bigger fool me! Tody I'm looking for a replacement for under $12500 and will
have to take out a loan to buy it.
Ps. I also sold a Ferrari Dino just before the old man passed away. It doubled in the next six months.

Given your market timing skills, PLEASE do not buy a Thompson! I'd hate to think how far the price might drop after you buy one.

This puts an 80% colt in the 30's easy.
Its not getting any better either.
I know of at least 10 guns in the last 30 days that have come off of the market into private collections and they are not for sale at ANY PRICE.
If you dont have one and want one, buy today and pay more than you think its worth. If you have one keep it. Its worth 1000 more every 2 months that goes by...

|It's all very transient by nature. And the whole thing could go bust, over some surprise legislative curve ball. It happened in 1986 and it can happen again. We might be telling ourselves how foolish it was to have sunk all that money in guns that got melted.|
Phil... I think you are dead on. I'm fearful that sometime in the future the Feds will prohibit transfers of Title II firearms. I'll be able to keep my Thompson until I die but then its off to the the furnace. And it won't be some semi-legit, democratic vote of Congress that will do it. It will be obscure executive order by a President with his own secret agenda.

| Maybe a way to get the prices in control are in our hands? Someone mentioned boycott. Well thats fine but as someone else said there will always be a guy with plenty of money and no brains. Why not every Thompson owner make a posting for a reasonable price for their gun. Just maybe your wife gets to buy it first and it may be sold fast. At least you will be controling the asking price if not the selling price. OH, by the way don't tell your wife about this as she might take you seriously. |
Welcome to the corporate world of price fixing...... Ah the Enron/Thompson Greed™ connection! ROTFLMAO

Basically, the only time I sold (actually usually traded) MG's is when I wanted to upgrade or get into a more expensive gun or if the gun didn't do it for me anymore. Crappy MP5 conversion or '21 Thompson? Hmmmm.....????
