Sold for $755!
I'm thinking I may get Bryant Ridge to list my 1918 Colt PP, seen here. It has a couple of features that may up the price even more, such as the "exciting trimmed bulged barrel" and "custom front sight for quick draw"

That was the first listing. Second still has 3 days to go and now sitting around $300. When you open that link, you then have to click “see new listing” button at the top.

Of course my post was in jest.
I wonder why, if the original offering was "no reserve" did thy not have to let it run? As a big customer of GB, they are allowed to do what they want, hoping for a higher outcome.

Here are the listings for the revolver on GB. It will have run three times when it ends this time. Here is one of my favorite sentences in the description.
This example wears the Blue finish, however time and use has resulted in a gorgeous Patina finish throughout.

Well to start with, it's not a .38 Special like the ad listing says. It's a .38 New Police, as it says buried down in the narrative.

Honoring a refund is the only way they get by. If they didn't they would not survive. Sell some junk and hope it sticks. They do sell a lot of nice guns too. I will never do business with them.

Probably returned due to false description. I would say it is a poster child for this dealer.

He keeps getting diminishing results. First auction, $1,300. Second Auction, $750. Third auction, $430. He doesn't seem to have paying bidders. Hmm?

Maybe it will be listed again, and again, and again...

I think I will wait until it sells for $0.01.

Here is a quote of a feedback that was left. "Seller failed to disclose that the firearm had been refinished. However they accepted the return and provided a full refund to cover the mistake". Buyer left an A rating because a full refund was given. Never mind their intent was total and complete deception.
