    Where?! I haven't found one under $780 Was that recently? Prices have been walking up a bit on them the last few years and they don't seem to be affected by the latest trend of downward sliding prices.

    Damn you! ;)

    I remember that deal. Would be nice to see it again. They have only gone up in price since then.

    I think the prices will be going back up, so like many have already said, buy what you need NOW.
    I've picked up a few still looking for others but I have been getting kits and flats, uppers, lowers, 80% uppers,ect. In many cases the kits are way cheaper than the finished product and once I have 'em I can put them together whenever I want or have time.
    Another thing is ammo and or reloading supplies. I don't see many great deals on powder or primers other than at the big shows, but that's ok too. I'd rather buy FTF in cash anyway.

    I want to sell my S&W Shield for what I paid for it and replace it with one for $249.99.

    C308s are supposedly $480 or something (maybe $430?) after rebate. And IICR PTR warranties them.

    I did see those, but not certain if they stand up to the quality of the PTR? I believe PTR does the receiver, but nothing more?

    They don't really. They use the PTR receiver and a bunch of used beat to hell parts now. But as I said, PTR does warranty them.

    Though I'd rather spend the extra $$ and have a gun that is much less likely to need work, and will be ready out of box.

    I have seen gun prices go up and down depending on the news , who's in office , what movies and TV shows are popular etc ...

    When showing our antique guns movies like The Big Sky , Jeremiah Johnson and The Revenant are still mentioned and used as "source" for "historical" information.
    Demand for a gun just like Kirk Douglas , Robert Redford or Leonardo DiCaprio used is a fairly common thing to hear or talk about at a antique gun show.
    Prices on antique guns have gone up and down as well , as of late.

    I have found that usually when I want to sell or trade a gun ... demand for that gun , has dropped off... But when I want to buy a gun its usually at a time when the gun that I want to buy , is selling at a all time high in money....:eek::D

    LOL So true! Everybody calls my 1874 Sharps the "Quigley gun." While it is very close to the one used in the movie it's not quite the same and I had it years before that movie came out;)

    Just this month , when showing our guns at the Museum of the Mountain Man ...
    We had a family from Germany looking at our guns...
    When they see our Sharps rifle on display .. The dad rattles off a slew of German which I was trying to follow , when suddenly I hear plain as day "AH , Quigley Down Under , YA YA! " ... Too Funny.

    Love the Sharps. Most everyone calls her the "Two-Step" because it's knocked a couple of folks back a bit when they touched her off:s0112:
