17,900 for pre- sample?

Am I missing something? Aren't transferrables about this price? Did I miss something while gone last week? Stop the madness please! For our childrens sake, stop!
Was this the $30,000 pre-sample gun awhile back?

Yeah, it was out there before. I remember the Hank Williams reference.

Don't remember the price - but this is just stupid when you see this kind of greed.

Not surprisingly this gun has been listed for a while with no takers. Previously discussed here on Nov. 5th:

Now I remember. I thought that chair looked familiar. Now if he'll take the 1 out of the price, he might sell it.

He has always priced his stuff high. No doubt, the owner is getting the market and he's taking the leftovers. I imagine with some WW2 stuff being priced all the way to the mid-twenties, his high teen price is ok for a pre-sample. The thing I remember most about Pritchard is he took in on trade from a local PD either some M16's or Reisings, I can't remember now which, and the condition of the trade was he could not sell them to GA residents. They had to be sold to out of state buyers. With dealings like that, he can kiss my ass, I'll not do business with the likes of him. mad.gif

I have to say, I feel a lot less stupid for buying a pre-86 Colt 28 a few months ago at what I thought at the time was a ridiculous price.

Trying to sell premays at insane prices has got to be really tough...with transferables you gamble some dope will come along and buy with the `little head`doing the thinking,..but expecting a dealer to flop like a mullet is like waiting for cat shit to roll uphill... laugh.gif
