I just had to share this; I can't believe the price for a semi-auto. Man, if this thing sells, I’m going to sell mine.

All I can say is “Unbelievable”

It's that Korean War gas mask and the old "L" drums driving up the cost, don'tcha think? And he wants shipping + $50 to boot. I noticed "Reserve Not Met" above the price. No s***, Sherlock!!! I guess that makes my MGC 1921 dummy worth about $2K. tongue.gif

I put a bid of $300 on it, just so it does get at least one bid. I wouldn't give much more then that. I can buy one here that some squirrel put a swivel on the reciever. For about that.

The gas mask bit threw me a little. It caused me to have a vietnam flashback of when I served in Germany. Don't worry, I don't know what that means either. blink.gif

Stamp a "M" on the wood, and this gun will bring $23,000 easy.

If anyone is interested I have an old cheese grater knob I would part with for $250. Give your new Kahr tommy that "old school" look. wink.gif

Decisions … Decisions … Decisions

A semi auto Auto-Ordnance for $13,000.00 or a full auto West Hurley for 15,500.00, almost the same price. Wow life is rough with decisions ….

And to think I gave my cheesegrater knob to the wife as an attachment for the Kitchen Aid. (she uses it to grind garlic)

I would think that without the original knob that the price would drop to around $800

I saw a Longbarrel Kahr Historical Commemorative at the gun show today for $3000. It was chrome plated and was in a fancy wood box, under glass. That was probably a good place for it.

soapbox.gif A SBR is a waste of a $200 tax and slows transfers of real NFA weapons down. IF I pay my tax, I want a suppressor or a machinegun.
