I was looking to buy one of his GI Thompson pistol grips for a 28 when I found the auction had been pulled by Ebay's gun haters. Was the seller anyone on this Forum or does anyone know this seller? If so, please contact me.

I saw a 50 rd drum on Ebay last night. I'm sure it will be pulled too.

In the last 3 months I have been able to purchase 2 drums on ebay, a Crosby and a worcheser drum after they were pulled. I contacted the owner right after the drums were pulled. Paid 600. & 700. and both drums in excellent shape. I suggest when you see a drum listed, knowing it will be pulled, you make attempt to get Email address of owner and contact them right after its pulled and make last offer prior to drum being pulled. It won't work all the time, but has worked for me several times.
Its worth the effort.

I agree with Ron.
My usual strategy is to contact the seller of anything Ebay has a problem with as soon as it comes out, just in case.
I have got 2 drums that way too, unfortunately they were Westies.
