This guy got so mad when I told him he was ripping people off. I told him he was an asshole and that he sould buy a blue book because at the price he is seling this shit for, he can afford one.

Afterall he makes this sound like its an original and is selling it for over 4 times what its worth.

"I have not placed oil on wood or metal since I obtained it."
that does not sound like a +

"So this weapon is not for the person that wants a shooter. This is for the Collector that has the ability to put one away and enjoy the ability to save a part of history."
i think thats the main point. its a colectors piece. still i think your right, adler. its far too high of a starting price. although i would not be very suprised if the auction ended around that price.

if vintage guns are anything like vintage cars then i can see how an unfired weapon with original packaging and matching serial numbers cold fetch such a sum.

It could be an origional, A.O didn't start building the 1927's until 1975 if I remember correctly. I like the brochure part the best. Why would you send 1936 A.O paper with a gun built 40+ years later?

If he can sell this, i need to know this guy lol. I got a NIB 100% condition Win pre64 m70 .300h&h DOM 1951. This just sjould be able to gat a couple hundred grand for it lol

As far sa the oil part, it's a condition thing. Oil on the wood or in the bore can hid scratches and blemishes. When you buy a used gun, always make sure the bore is dry, if it's not don't buy until you see it dry. If you look through the barrel at light blemishes reflect the light and stand out, if it's oily everything is shinny. Oil on the stock can hide blemishes in the a pic. If you buy it over the net, it gets there all scratched up and the seller blames transit damage.

Mind you that Auto Ords made in the west hurely days werent the best as well. Their 1911s were built using alot of surplus internal parts.

I emailed the guy at first asking abhout the gun...he says the DOM is in the early 90's. Westu Hurley owned it up until 99 I think so their are more of them out there than Kahr made ones.

I emailed him back under my normal moniker and called him a rip off artist again and he shoudl sell by the blue book. He told me to fuck off and if he wanted to charge that amount for it he could, no matter if the book said its worth 1800.

If I searched gun auctions (or ebay) and looked for people that are asking way too much for something so I could email them and complain, then Id be a very busy person. I see that all the time. I dont bother to do this however. I find it a waste of everyones time. If you dont want it then dont bid on it. Also, if this guy is lucky enough to find someone dumb enough to buy it then more power to him.

F' that guy. I can't stand watching people get ripped off so blatently!


But for every ripoff artist, there's a sucker...

Lets take cars for example... When the Subaru WRX first came out, the MSRP was around $24k or so... Most dealers had a very slight markup, like $24,250 or something, just because demand was a bit high... Some dealers had prices that were even lower then MSRP... HOWEVER, there is this one dealer called Stevens Creek Subaru in San Jose, CA who took it upon themselves to mark the car up to $35k! :eek: I went in and just laughed at them... I walked straight into the owners office and said "You're a fucking idiot! I hope you get hit by a fucking missile!" (Or something to that effect)... He laughed right back at me and said "For every markup, there's a sucker"... :( Sad thing is, they sold a bunch of those marked up WRX's! So he's right...

People are crooked and will steal money from anyone they can.
