    Here is a very good condition R9S stealth listed at a great price:

    Here is the post on Gunbroker.com where the pictures and description were copied from, going for market value:

    http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=405533359

    What do these guys think they are going to gain? I would never do anything but a FTF sale from Armslist. And what are the odds someone meeting for a FTF handgun sale isn't packing? Shoudn't they at least wait until the gunbroker auction has closed to post a fake?

    I would guess they think they could get some kind of scam going.

    I glanced at it, I didn't see any way to report a posting to Armslist as being a scam/etc.

    They have a flag button, which has scam as an option, which I hit, but nothing showed up on the listing or my email.

    Always have to be careful and do FTF transactions.

    Somebody must have as the site says it's been removed due to it being a scam.
