A co-worker of mine paid in excess of $2200 for what was essentially a Del-Ton kit rifle....I have heard a couple of high price horror stories some that seem hard to believe but who knows...

On gunbroker alot of  Bushmaster Carbon 15 rifles were sold for 1800+.
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 10:40:48 AM EDT
I paid $22/ea for a handful of M2 pmags
Our panic was justified though so I'm not unhappy
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 10:42:50 AM EDT
My friend sold a NIB Colt 6940 for $3500.  He purchased it for $1400.

I sold 20 Pmags for $50 each.  I bought them for $10 each plus free shipping from Brownell's just 2 weeks before the mayhem.  I also sold a case of CCI mini mags for 5 times what I bought them for.
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 10:43:15 AM EDT
3 SCAR 17 mags for 375.

He sold them in Texas, I believe.

A few people I know paid $99 for EACH Pmag they bought. They just couldn't wait...... My order from DSG came to my door 2 weeks after theirs finally came in.

I didn't did so bad; i bought too much ammo, that's for sure.  I definitely bought more than I needed to thinking there would be several months of dry spell.  I paid $17 per box for 9mm at some point i'm sure.  I paid $519 for a G26 that I could have bought 90 days prior for $467 shipped from an online retailer.  That said, I did manage to sell my SUB 2000 for $300 more than I paid.
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 10:50:12 AM EDT
I know someone that sold 9 lower receivers, purchased at $85 each for $300 each.  In a manner similar to a gambling addict, he promptly spent the cash, and then some, on more guns and ammo.

Saw a Sig M400 going for $2500.

I saw an ad for those rubber pull doohickies that slip onto the bottoms of magazines.  $50 for 2 and it sold.

$100 pmags

Non existent BCGs. If you found one on the EE it was a worn out non C158 for $350+

1.75 a round imported m855 It still had the sub 125 a case sticker on the cases
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 10:53:48 AM EDT
I paid $.50 per round for IMI M855

But the real tragedy is I didn't sell everything. I started the year with well over 50k rounds of ammo and too many guns. Doh!
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 10:57:51 AM EDT
I am ashamed to admit that I bought 30 Pmags for a stupid price of $10 each when before the panic I probably could have gotten them for $9 each shipped.  Stupid panic buy.
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 10:59:17 AM EDT
Anything on cheaper than dirt.  Including the $100 pmags.
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 11:00:43 AM EDT
I sold a DPMS franken-gun that I had put together from $400 worth of used parts to a dealer at a gun show in January. He paid me $1600, pretty pathetic. I have no regrets.
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 11:02:15 AM EDT
I know of one guy who paid $1400 for 40 PMAGS on gunbroker.  I know because I sold them.  Funny this is that he wasn't even from a state that was in any danger of them being banned.
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 11:02:19 AM EDT
Someone posted the link of an auction on gunbroker.com where a box of 100 pmags went for just under $7500.
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 11:02:22 AM EDT
Some member on here sold 4 6920's for 10K a pop.

Anyone that bought from CTD this year.

Link Posted: 10/29/2013 11:03:27 AM EDT
I sold a Spikes upper receiver, just the upper for $400 on Gunbroker just after the panic.

I'm still kicking myself for not selling 5.56 for $1+/rd.  Could have replaced the ammo and added several nice guns.
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 11:05:01 AM EDT
I prepared well in advance, therefore, I bought nothing at those ridiculous prices.

I did sell quite a few things to those less prepared and in full-on panic mode.

Those things sold, have now been replaced for much less that I originally purchased the first time around.

You all know the saying, "Buy Cheap and Pile Deep." Get busy.

Sold a case of Wolf 7.62x39 for $500.  Guy thought I was giving him a good deal.

I heard bullpup rifles like the Steyr AUG A3 and the FN FS2000 were going for $5,000 - $9,000 each.

A coworker paid $2,500.00 for a Bushmaster Patrolman at a gun show just before things went full retard. I tried to tell him I could find a different brand for around 1200.he kept saying  "I wanted a Bushmaster, that's the rifle they are going to ban".      

He also picked up 500 rounds of ammo for it. I was afraid to ask about that.

I've been looking, but Google is failing me. I seem to remember he posted a pic of the cash.

$40 for a bag of buffalo jerky at the gun show.

Case of gen 3 pmags for $7500.

I overpaid for PMags.  Bought 20 at $10 each.

I also bought a Bushy for something like $900.

I still kick myself.

HK P7M8's were selling for $3200 on Gunbroker.
I never saw any bans on them discussed anywhere. I did pull that pistol out of my wife's purse and gave her a G19 to carry instead. No way was I going to risk her losing a 3K gun.
Link Posted: 10/29/2013 11:32:05 AM EDT
I sold 2 FDE 20 rd Pmag's for $45 a piece. Guy was stoked he got 2 for 90.



A fool and his money.
