    Hi, I reread the rules and don't see anything about "price baiting".

    There is probably a real term for this, but what I mean is: posting a firearm, lets say, at a certain price. Receiving a large number of interested parties. Then in turn relisting at a higher price.

    I guess when I write it like that, it seems legit, just shady.

    I'm just sore. 2 91/30's popped up on Armslist TWICE, tail end of last week and this week. Seller claimed the buyer flaked. They were listed at $100 each and looked pretty good.

    Today they popped up here for $150.

    It could be a coincidence, could be somebody flipping them, or could be "price baiting"...

    Your thoughts?

    My thoughts just move along. they aren't rare they aren't valuable. And not everyone is Honest or has a clue with ethics are. So when something like this pops up just move on.

    Ditto. 91/30's are cheap....spending more than 120 on one (unless it's a 91, or Finn, or some other rare model) is not a good deal
