Does gunbroker have an email alert feature warning you the auction is coming to a close? Similar to ebay?

I always miss bidding on stuff since I forget about it. Considering the 13 extra mags, this was a deal.

Go to My Gunbroker > Preferences > Email Notification Preferences

May sure "Send watched item ending soon emails?" is set to Yes.

Place item in Watched List.

You should receive an e mail about 6 hours before the auction ends.

I don't know if you really missed out on not getting that one. It looks pretty beat to hell to me, but what do I know!

I was watching it cause I have 20" barrel envy.

I thought that also but then I saw it described as "very nice inside and out". Must be an optical illusion.

For $1088 shipped you can get a green 20" MSAR with factory optic from Buds Gun Shop. Even with 13 mags you are still at a price of only $1350 or so. I understand the collectible nature of early AUGs, but man, $700 is a lot of money to keep in the pocket especially when you are getting a new gun instead of a used one!

There are some decent AUG and USR deals on GB every once in a while. I still like the guys who are trying to sell 42rd mags for $100 though.

Too true.

MSAR's are pretty well priced right now, but there are still some high-ons on GB stuck on the prices from 1 yr ago!

I would still take the AUG.

Just found out from another thread that MSAR was having trouble with some of the 1.5 optics and have yet to honor the exchange for a new one. That is not comforting. I will have to give that some more thought.

They can't exchange it as they have none to exchange it with.

Get the rail version. From what I have been told the MSAR optic is nowhere near as good as the Swarovski made Steyr optic.

I just bought CCCCanuck's 18'5" HB E4 (hope to get it tomorrow or on Sat). Initially I wanted to go with the stock MSAR optic and he said that he bought one and found that it was akin to looking through the base of a coke bottle - blurry on the edges and a very limited FOV.

I'll either run a Primary Arms 4x ACOG-style scope or a Bushnell 1-4x24 and call it a day.

Looked like honest wear to me, the A1 Augs were not exactly the most durable gun in existence. The mags are easily worth $300. Anyway thanks for the email alert tip.

meh, i got my limited edition MSAR with case, optic, rail, knife, sling, and 13 mags (6 42 round, 5 30 round and 2 20 round) for $1500 shipped to my ffl.

i simply can't imagine how a used aug can be worth $500 more than that entire package. I can appreciate vintage, but i'd much rather have my razor sharp knife and bad ass gun case.

$1500 for a limited edition STG-556 is a good price. I see them for way more than that on GB.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 4:00:26 AM EDT
mine is the Gebirgsjager edition. They generally go for around 2400 with just the three 30 round mags that fit in the case, so i got it CHEAP, but there are good deals on the limiteds out there. You can occasionally find them for under 2000, and IMHO, that package is a MUCH better deal than the aug

Yeah I almost bought an ACU LE STG-556, but decided to go with the E4 instead which I just got today.

It is SWEET!
