There was an auction today in Oregon, the former owner of Viking sports in Stoughton had a bunch of stuff in storage. He was killed in a car accident last year.

Unfortunately, I had to leave before they got to the ammo and guns

Anyone else there? do you remember what things went for? I didn't think I'd stick around for the guns, but I was kinda interested in the 7.62x39 and .223 ammo and the the box of garand clips.

Over priced, I think the garand clips went for $40-45.00. I bought the 223 ammo for $35.00. I thought the guns were high priced, the best deal was probably the SKS for $100.00 or the Ruger MK I $140.00?

Way to keep everyone in the loop.
I guess if you did that we would drive the prices up.

There was plenty of people with way too much money to throw away.
FYI, for those who didn't get informed: Read the Sunday paper for this stuff!

You guys didn't miss all that much. Of the 7 firearms my friend and I were interested in buying, 6 of them magically had been pulled from the auction prior to start.

Originally there were 2 Colt Navy 1911's that we were seriously considering investing in, but alas, they were amongst those that pulled a houdini on us.

Also, most of the auctioneers have websites where they list the auctions they have comming up as a resource other than the local papers.

I'd wondered what happened to the navy 1911's. All I saw were the"match" guns and 9mm's.
