The NY drum on gunbroker which was listed last week didnt sell - it now has been re-listed for the same price of $975.00. Six months ago it would have sold!
Any ideas why it didnt sell?

I don't know for sure, but I can guess. After the sunset, the market for the vintage drums no longer includes buyers just looking for a shooter drum. Whereas, before the sunset, those drums pretty much had a captured audience for both the shooter and collector. The big factor is probably with the collector. They want to see if the vintage drum prices will go down, before they pony up the bucks so soon after the sunset. Even though most don't think these items will take a hit, I think many are testing the waters for awhile. We will probably see this also with the preban AR15's and AK's.
