Oh no...

... I just discovered Gun Broker. This won't be good for my wallet.

On the upside, I did just purchase an unopened, immaculate tuna can of Mosin Chow for .69/rd with free shipping. The tuna can is more for a "conversation piece" than for shooting.

Well I'm sure that's not as good as pre-panic prices but I'm finding it on ammoseek for .74-ish/rd and as high as $2.00/rd for some fancy domestic brass match grade stuff.

There are many tuna cans available ranging from $259 - $400 for 440 rounds.

Maybe they're individually signed by Sergei Mosin?

If you just found gunbroker, I don't blame you. If that's the current going rate than so be it. Our incredulity is based on the fact that stuff was a fraction of that price for years and not that long ago.

I guess the days of spam cans for $79.95 Are long gone.

Just like I saw mosins for sale for $495 this past summer, and thought those were crazy high prices.

Gunbroker is really hit or miss. Sometimes you can find a nice milsurp for fair market value. Other times, and it happens quite often, a bidding war starts for a real beat up firearm. I spent a month or two looking for a takedown winchester 1897. Almost every time, the bidding would go on for hours after it ended adding another $200+ to the price. I'm not spending 1k on a 100+yr old shotgun, I assume people were buying these just for the "trench gun" aesthetic. Just be patient if bidding on firearms. And don't even look for primers or ammo...

The other problem, is that I'm trying to build up a stash before ammunition background checks come into force. I'm buying from the convenient location of my keyboard. Soon, I'll be driving to VA/WVA and schlepping it back.

Did I mention that it was free shipping?
