But since the American taxpayers paid for them originally I'm thinking he's doubling his money on each one sold.
    And it's down to 9. I was almost right when I said this latest lot of 52 would be gone by midnight.
    My guess is there are more in the pipe.

    Exciting times!

    In looking at his closed auctions there were several people who bought these guns in large quantities.
    I see 42,47,50 and 52. So we will for sure see them being relisted and flipped by some of them on same site.
    A month or so from now there will be actual pics of each gun with the letter and asking prices of $2500+ most likely.

    I think you're right. My first thought was that the high volume buyers might be already set up to cerakote guns, and all of the sudden we've got new USMC marked guns popping up... but I think the provenance of originality. .. original finish and originally owned by the military and likelyhood of combat use will be much much more desirable to almost everyone that likes firearms.

    FWIW, I have already updated my spreadsheet with a placeholder.

    Once we start getting these in, let's figure out what variations exist!

    The person selling them is simply dumping them for a quick turnaround on their investment.
    Could have upwards of $500,000 tied up in this. If he paid $1000 each for 500 of them and is flipping them at $1300 or so that's a pretty quick $150,000 he's making. I'd even think they paid less than $1000 for each one. Old saying is true 'it takes money to make money'. And this seller was at the right place at the right time to scoop em up.

    .. and also, I think it only fair since I got hit with the heavy NC 7.5% tax... dag nabbit...
    Can I be the first to post in the WTS section these fine fine gunbroker items for sale.
    And if you act now, it will include a small pocket tool and a Gunbroker tote bag. For $50.00.

    Wonder if we could get lucky enough that the seller would have .. and let us document the serial range of guns.. start and finish serials . Wonder if all numbers in the range are used. That would be awesome to know if this things start gettting refinished. Some will.

    I still don't like that aspect of this. You have to be a 'Gold member' of Gunbroker to buy one and PAY $50 to become one.
    Ive been a user/member/buyer there since it started. In fact I was one of the original Beta testers for them. Now they let some seller dictate you have to pay addtl fees just to buy one of his auctions? I smell an inside rat somewhere. It ain't right. The owners of Gunbroker are already RAKING it in daily on final value fees from items sold. Now they have this stupid 'gold member' only BS?

    At $50 a pop, gunbroker may be hiring some employees to run belt sanders to add some military wear and turning out authentication letters pretty soon.
    If we have Seal Team Six used New Agents and Pocketlites next week, that's gonna be what Lt. Aldo Raine would call "suspicious ".
