I apologize for the wrong choice of words! I guess I meant to say that for what it is, the asking prices are high; what they actually sell for is another thing.
Hey I'm guilty of paying seemingly ridiculous amounts for some of my guns, I won't deny it.
Case in point: the Viper I tried to buy recently (see the "colt viper" thread):
I was willing to go $1000+ on a glorified Police Positive but it wasn't to be!
Boas are another example. The gun itself is nothing special, just that they made so few of them so the Blue Book value of $600 IIRC for NIB condition is wishful thinking. Didn't the most recent one sell on AA for $1678?
If someone wants to pay an amount that seems foolish for a particular gun, that's their (my) prerogative I guess. It's whatever the market will bear.
