I was looking for something else when I came across this.
I thought the price was a typo until I read the description.
This looks like a typical modified Express with the price of a high end O/U Combo.
Can anyone tell me if this is legit and why?

That would be a bad typo, bad joke, or both

I was thinking that the seller knows that “there’s one born every minute” and he figured he’d give it a try and see if he can find one. Seeing some of the email scams that are bilking folks, I give him maybe a 50/50 shot.


PS. It took a few minutes to find but in the 40th edition of the Blue Book it shows a value of $847.00 if it’s 100%.

I just saw he is charging $250.00 for shipping. :shock: :lol:
I have a theory that someone is trying to make this guy sell something he
doesn't want to sell.

I think it's this!! :shock: He'll even throw in a few boxes of ammo. He's also got two other auctions going at the moment. I hope him good luck with his auction ... a little too much for my for me.

But it does come with a soft case :)
I have seen other listings on GB that are 4-8 times their value. Like Jaspo said looking for a sucker.
It shows the seller has 5 sales I wonder if those were similar?

Wow! $23,333 + $250 HIS! What a deal. Price is firm which is what I would expect at that level.

He's just begging for harassing messages or someone to setup a dummy account and hit the buy it now which will tie him up for 900 dollars in seller fees for a few weeks until he can submit a claim to be reimbursed from GB. Maybe he's just lonely and the only way someone will interact with him is negatively.

Maybe he should sell it with starting bid of $50, and have shipping cost 25,000. More likely to get a bid that way, but still it ain't going to sell. It has served it's entire useful purpose by now, it gave us something to laugh at.

Based on the things you see online lately, you might be getting a person or some contraband included in that price.

There are a lot of uneducated inexperienced people buying guns right now due to current events. He might catch a sucker who thinks it’s something special that has the money.

Or, due to a divorce or some other legal circumstance he is being forced to sell his items.

The gun didn't draw any bids, of course. The same clown has it relisted with a minimum bid of $25,000 and a "Buy Now" price of $25,555.55. However, shipping is free instead of the previous $250. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
