I've been looking all over for one of those. I have 1000 rounds of ammo and only 99 stripper clips.

Oh yeah, don'tcha love it? a single old, greasy, probably rusted, stripper clip for $5.49 after shipping! not happy with your purchase? mail it back (for about 50 cents postage and he'll refund you 1/2 of the purchase price. let's see 1/2 of 49 cents...

I just can't believe that people POST those auctions and actually think someone will bite buy.

I should email him and ask him a question about the item.

Look a little closer and you will see that it's a "Dutch Auction".

Dutch Auctions
Dutch auctions are a special format in which the seller has multiple identical items to sell. You can bid on anywhere from one item to the available quantity of items. At the auction close, all winning bidders win their items at the lowest winning bid price.

For example, a seller may have five copies of Stephen King's 'The Stand' (on videotape) to sell. Each copy of 'The Stand' is three videotapes together as a set. In the auction listing, the quantity posted will be 5, and the bid price is the amount bid for each item. If you want to bid on two copies at $10 each, you enter 2 in the Quantity field and 10.00 in the Bid Amount field. You do not enter 20.00 in the bid amount field, as this would be a bid for 2 copies at $20 each.

You can identify Dutch auctions by the blue (D) in the item title, and because the quantity listed in the item listing will be greater than one. A Dutch auction cannot have a Reserve Price.

Yep, the price is high. If you really want to see something, go to ammoman.com and see what they are selling AR mags for.

I've noticed this irritating trend on online auctions and sale sights. It's the saturation of dealers. I remember when gunbroker and ebay were new and you had mainly individuals on their selling their unwanted items and such and you could get great deals. Well now when you try to find something you get bombarded with dealers asking prices for things that you could get at your local store for not much more. On ebay, it's even worse, I sometimes think it is only dealers and retailers listing their now. Now I don't mind people making money b/c I am all for that, but I wish there was a place where you could go specifically looking for individuals. At least here, the dealers are highlighted in yellow, so if you want to find them you can, or you can just skip.
