    I have a bad case of looking at Gunbroker for guns I already own but wanting older versions of said guns so to fulfill the itch without spending another $350ish on another but older Mosin or SKS let's talk about it, what's your gun broker go to gun when it's up for a price you are happy to pay?

    for me I already have a '53 and a '42 Mosin but see a 1915 with a sporter stock on it and I am so tempted to bid on it but...

    Oh look an Enfield No4 MK1 rifle from the same seller...

    Funny you should post this. 5 minutes ago I bid on a Ruger Blackhawk 41 magnum. I already have 1 with a 4 5/8" barrel but this one is 6 1/2". LOL!

    old classics, especially Winchester levers and model 70's, but I got cured. I got schnooked the last couple time. Pictures don't lie but they don't tell the whole story. What seems like a good deal even on mint guns turns sore when you add in tax, shipping, 3% CC fee on some then 1% GB fee, gotta do the math and sometimes walk away. Lately there's a lot of reports of sellers getting their screen name and feedback hacked, someone using the seller's ID and GB not doing anything about it.

    yeah I always do the math and if you don't have a C&R or its too new you gotta add your FFL of choices fee to that over all cost.

    it doesn't help when the guns ive bought have 2x-3x in value. I keep whispering to myself "better than the stock market"

    Buying a sporterized Mosin is like buying a dog from a puppy mill. Maybe worse because, at least, the dog isn’t defaced. We should discourage this practice; once military rifles are castrated, they can’t be returned to intended config!
