Polytech Legend @ the fall Harrisburg, PA Show for $550.00

eta: A Lepould VXII on and arms mount for $50.00 otd. Nothing was wrong with it, just really dirty. I think the dealer didnt realize what type of scope was on it. (got it same day at same show!! I scored twice!!)

A guy that sold bullets, cases, etc. had some real pulled .308 API projectiles. Only $1 each. It felt like I was buying drugs or something, $50 for such a small bag of bullets! But they work just as intended; poke a hole, cause a leak, and send a match all at the same time.

Also, a Simmons spotting scope, 18-36X for $45 out the door. I see those go for between $70-90 now.

The best deal I ever got was
a new S&W 686P stainless revolver (357) with a 6" barrel
for $435. OTD

and as far as AKs go,
I got a Arsenal USA underfolder built on a 1.6mm receiver with "new" hungarian parts,
and 4-30 mags for $570 + tax.
I always thought that was a good deal.

I like it alot. I can actually grip it, unlike a Glock 21. I don't have small hands either. If I could grip a Glock 21 comfortably, I would of had one years ago. So far, only put 100rds of Wolf through it. No failures so far. Accuracy is comparable to my Glock 22, maybe a tad better. I can see a 5" Tactical XD45acp in the future.

I bought a Colt Delta Elite "Gold Cup" for $485.00 a couple years ago. It was the stainless model. However, I've since sold it 'cause at the time, I really wasn't into 10mm handguns. What a dumbass I am! I will never learn.

Over the years I've been pretty lucky at gun shows, although its been years since i came around any "deals." Most of my finds have been from people walking around with their shit at a show. I bought a Model A IMI UZI from a fella brand new in the box for 350 bucks about ten years ago. I bought a Winchester 1897 trench from a guy for 600 bucks about five years ago. I bought a 1917 enfield eddystone from a dealer for 90 bucks in awesome condition with a 3 digit serial number, other than that its been bayonets all kinds really. I bought an original 1941 johnson bayonet from a dealer who didnt know what it was for 30 bucks came with the original scabbard. You have to have a keen eye, when i get to a show i usually walk it quick then rewalk it slow and check every little detail and any dealer with alot of shit on their table i always ask what he has under the table, sometimes you find that one thing you've always wanted that way.

I got a safariland level 3a vest with desert carrier for 40$. It was medium but the armor was clean, and not abused. I wore it rather than caried it, and an hour later a guy paid me 150$ for it. I had better armor at home, so I sold it to him, besides. I needed a large.

Ps if you want a deal check out my adds on the EE. I am having a three day sale.

NIB SAR1 for $280 from a dealer at a gunshow 2 months ago.

Found a preban polytech at a shop for 600 OTD, sold it for a grand, cause I needed the money.


NEW M16A1 uppers complete with b/c/ch for $350. They were new, and still had the paper roll in the barrels. Guy had a ton of them.

Thats pretty much it.

I also picked up a Chinese 75 round drum off of e-bay for $80 shipped. It had a "buy it now" for $75 and had only been up for about an hour.

I do have to admit one of the best deals was an all-matching Remington-Rand 1911 with all the original parts and about 98% finish for $675 about 2 years ago. It was a steal. I got about $1,100 out of it when I turned it a couple months later.
