Some items are sure increasing. But, I have been aware of Finn M27s, M28s and M28/30s lately that seem to not sell well at prices they were just going for 6 months ago. I think it was Zampilot that was having trouble getting decent money for his M28/30s lately. Made me pull back from offering a couple of mine. Could be the SA marked Russian stuff is just hotter now.Man oh man, that line I used to feed my wife all the time about me buying guns as an investment is becoming more of a reality than I ever believed possible. My collection is doing better than my 401K.
As always...well stated.How many non-scrubbed 1895 French-made 1891s would you estimate are in the U.S.? 200? 1,000? 5,000? More?
Surely far fewer than there are many different USGI or Nazi rifles that regularly bring that much and more.
It's worth whatever someone is willing to pay.
