Nickle 6\" Diamnondback

Did anyone see this yet, I bid until it hurt and the price just keeps going up. If only I didn't need to eat or pay bills that would be mine.

The Mrs. just doesn't think I need it as much as I do.

I just can't keep up with a lot of this!
Who are these bidders? Are they newbies caught up in the frenzy or am I just a cheapskate/behind the economic times?

Maybe this is the first DB to hit outside the black of the target. RARE DB indead. Tight pattern.

I bet if it had a starting price of $1500 there would be zero bids. A little exaggerated, but I think their is a messed up psychology behind these auctions and the bidders.

I wonder how many of these get bid up like this, and then the buyer can't or won't honor the deal.

Guys, this is shill bidding like I've never seen before. Notice the low rating by all the bidders. Most likely the seller is placing his own bids. If you allow yourselves to get caught up in this excitement then I should buy this gun and resell it next week.....for a profit.

Shill bidding? Perhaps. But, maybe they are just new buyers who might be interested in getting a really nice nickel Diamondback 22. If I bid, I would have no rating and I have a few of these. Never bought a gun on either (GB or AA) auction site.

Re: Nickle 6\" Diamnondback

Will the next issue of "blue book of gun values" read the following? .22LR 6" barreled and nickeled DB, add $500 for hang tag, add $550 for out of focus photos, add $200 for near duplicate photos, add $400 for first time buyers.

I passed up one of these DB variations at the last gun show for half the selling price. I considered that price was overpriced and this auction final price is double overpriced.

Buckaroo73 must like Diamondbacks and have deep pockets. If this is "real", I can't blame the seller for trying. You notice it has the correct box and not necessarily THE box.
