Truely amazing...archived here prior to cancellation... [i] This is a beautiful Pre ban Colt Ar15 for all you guys that need to look up the serial # it is st035590. I bought it about a month ago, and between the girlfriend not liking it and having moved to New York I need to let it go. so I am auctioning it off. I accept pay pal as payment. Buyer will pay for shipping. Due to Batf I can only ship it to a licensed ffl holder or dealer. so make sure you talk to your local gun shop and find out how much they are gonna charge you for atransfer. shouldn't be more than 25.00 good luck bidding. e-mail me about the accessories that i have for the rifle. SORRY ABOT THE PICTURE I DOWNLOADED ONE TO SHOW YOU WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE. THE RIFLE IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE PICTURE WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE ONE YOU WILL BE BIDDING ON HAS A TELESCOPING STOCK. COMMANDO STYLE.[/i] [img]http://ebay2.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/_EBAY_1ae77d436a18f92bf0fb332c747856c4/i-1.JPG[/img]

I put the bid on it...... minimum bid, i really can't afford anymore toy's. just did it for fun...

You put a $1,200 bid on a rifle that the seller cannot describe with any amount of detail or condition, yet claims is preban, and who offers a picture of a postban to give you an idea of what you're bidding on but adding mention of the stock and "commando style"? Wow, you take your fun seriously. At $1,200, this guy might just have sold you a beat up postban Oly. Unless you emailed the guy, you don't know the bbl length, whether it's an aftermarket upper on a Colt lower, etc. And unless you see the SN on the lower, I wouldn't assume that it is what the seller claims. Good luck. Who knows. You may have fallen into a really nice rifle. Let us know what happens.

Ebay's going to stop this auction before it ends and that will make all bids null and void. You could bid $10,000 if you wanted and you wouldn't be obligated to pay.

We should get three of four guys from the site upbid that rifle to like 6 or 7k, before ebay cancels it. Watch the guy it all excited and stuff...lol

It's against Ebay rules to auction guns anyway, so the auction is already void, acording to Ebay. There's no way in hell this one will make it to the end. They've got people who's jobs are just to look through every auction to make sure it doesn't violate any policies.
Link Posted: 11/29/2002 6:48:30 PM EDT
Shit, I can't let this one slip. I'm bidding.. Heh, i'm current high bidder! LMAO

The seller is probably spooging his pants right now thinking of all the things he's going to buy with the money. You just KNOW the one shady preban dealer at the gun show is watching that auction and gettin' a chubby.
Link Posted: 11/29/2002 7:19:09 PM EDT
I bid 99,999,999.00. They would not let me bid any higher than that, however anything under that should be fine. heh, looks like I won the auction :-)

I wonder if they've ever had anything bid up this high before... Red lights and sirens must be going off somewhere at Ebay...

Jeebus H. Christ on a popsicle stick! You guys are NUTZO! Oh, crap, I feel sorry for the schmuck who's running this auction if it closes, because ebay's going to charge him a fee of...well, I'm afraid to try to figure out how much that'll be, but he's heading for the poorhouse! My guess is that ebay won't cancel this auction now, because the crap that's going to happen when it closes out will be far worse than any puhishment ebay could hand out to the seller, or the buyer. Sort of a 'You peed in your bed and now you have to sleep in it' thing... Man, that's almost as funny as the booger story thread. CJ

After rooting around ebay's horribly disorganized site for a while, I finally found their price list: [i]5.25% of the initial $25, plus 2.75% of the initial $25 - $1000, plus 1.50% of the remaining closing value balance[/i] For a $100 million dollar sale, the fees would be 25 * .0525 + 975 * 0.0275 + 99,999,000 * 0.015 = $1,500,013.13! I wonder what his credit card company is going to say when ebay's attempts to charge his card that amount?z
Link Posted: 11/29/2002 8:44:35 PM EDT
You peopel do realise who is the top-bidder, right? [b]ComputerGuy[/b]. ComputerGuy is gonna get screwed. Let me re-cap: Cat shit blood on him Car had like eight misadventures He almost [b]died[/b] from a pack of socks cutting him eBay is gonna expect him to pay..... Scott
Link Posted: 11/29/2002 8:54:20 PM EDT
This is too funny. LMAO But the guy can't be stupid enough to think he's going to get the money. All he has to do is cancel the auction, and he owes eBay nothing, except maybe an insertion fee because it's a reserve auction.
Link Posted: 11/29/2002 8:59:21 PM EDT
LOL I want see the winner use PayPal to pay for it.
Link Posted: 11/29/2002 9:04:48 PM EDT
Someone, somehow, is going to get f*cked in this deal. Bob
Link Posted: 11/29/2002 9:25:30 PM EDT
It appears that the Item has already been reported to Ebay's safe harbor team... I had a pang of guilt for Computerguy and tried to report it myself... it may take 36 hours to investigate it...... On a second note, I am originally from that area in N.Y and I may go back and meet him for an inspection of the rifle. His reserve was $1400, that's not bad for a preban colt is it? What about his S/N listed, ST035590??
Link Posted: 11/29/2002 11:47:54 PM EDT
yea i am the high bidder, heh! i know the actuion will get canceled because it's already void ( breaking ebay's policy.. heheh ) i bid the maximum amount ebay will allow.. if they dont cancel it by tomorrow i'll email them myself...
Link Posted: 11/29/2002 11:50:32 PM EDT
I just emailed this to the seller:
Just so you know, your auction on ebay is against the rules set by ebay, so therefore the auction is void. No firearms are allowed. Some buddies and I just bid it way the fuck up there for fun :-) Try gunbroker.com or the equipment exchange in AR15.com Thanks, sorry if you crapped your pants or anythign..heh, i know i would!
