    Can I make a post about a gun I found for sale at a LGS and give its location?

    I started a thread with location and contact info. The next step is for an interested party to contact the store.

    I like to post about stuff I find at pawn stores and LGS, especially in the C&R section. Not everyone wants to run around to 10 pawn shops to see what they might have. So please do post about anything interesting you find.

    I could not find the post but if it is a milsup and is still all original the store should have zero problems selling it. I RARELY see those any more. Last few times I saw one that was beat to death they were selling for more than a NIB 1911. One in that shape is a collector dream. If the store can't find a buyer they should show it on the auction. They WILL find a buyer easily.

    They do send some things to auction. There was a Valmet M76 I cleaned up that was NIB. It's a Finland made AK47 that is the Cadillac of AK's.

    If they don't get a bite on that 1911 I can guarantee they will if they get it out there. Unless they want some un real price people will grab it. Last one I saw was a Remington Rand WWII issue. It was a bunch of parts was about the best I could say for it. Shop was asking the same price as a Springfield Armory Loaded. The RR was gone in days. These are getting hard to find any more in any shape. In that kind of shape there will be collectors fighting over it.

    There is plenty going to auction, they just wish to sell some thing in store first.
