I bought a PTR-91 GI for $580 shipped..... How cheap do they need to get?
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.
<$500 would be awesome.
Its been a while, Bolus posted some deal and I jumped on it.... But it was like Christmas before last.
I just wanted to give you a little grief
Enough of what?
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?
Funniest thing I have seen in a while.
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....
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
I'm just gonna sell when you want to buy and buy when you want to sell.
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
Hmm, so question is, what *is* a good buy right now....
A good buy right now?
Totally anything made or built by CAI. They would never have issues.
