I monitor the gun sales sites for fun and to look for guns that I have interest in buying. Perhaps it a sign of the times ? Perhaps it’s due to the demise of Remington Arms. Whatever the reason . . . . . .found a Remington 1100 16 ga on Gunbroker today. The auction has two days to go. The current bid is $3,825. Comes with the box. This is beyond the point of being ridiculous.

No, ANY 1953 Buick for $3,500,000 is beyond ridiculous.

Indeed it is. Can only assume that it’s based on an assumption that the world has seen the last 1100 produced , if not the last Remington gun in general.

Better hope there isn’t an O ring shortage!

Wow! That is beyond crazy.

It kind of begs the question, if you have any "extra" Remington guns around, why aren't you selling them now?

Same fellow has a 12 and a 20 both well over $2,000.

Same guy has the current high bid on all three.

And no, I don’t raise cotton.

I just checked. The same seller also has a Remington 1100 28 gauge for sale on Gunbroker. Current bid is over $3,500 !

I have no words.

And also the same high bidder.

Well, might get a shipping discount.

So the fella is going to have around $11,000 or so into four 1100s.

People should be very aware of shill bidders on Gunbroker. I have seen guns sell on Gunbroker for very high prices just to see the same gun relisted. Gunbroker really needs to do a better job of eliminating this practice on their site.

Same seller and bidder.

This is beginning to not pass the smell test.

Not more than 18 months ago I sold four 1100’s. A Trap T 12 ga and three Skeet T guns in a standard 20, a 28, and a .410. Each gun had the magazine weight, VERY nice wood, and 95% + condition.

Got not more than $900 for each gun !

Guess it’s all about timing !

Reminds me of the interest in Winchester M12's in my younger days.

In the mid 1970's, I had a buddy who's main trap gun was an M12.

It was a "built up" trap gun, not some original factory M12 Trap. It had been fitted with a Simons trap rib and nice custom trap wood, a dense, dark walnut. It was quite heavy as I recall, partly due to the wood.

Sometime around 1976, we were at the small, local trap club where we were members; one day and there were two guys competing to bid on his gun.

I thought one was on the verge of tears, like a preschooler in a toy shop, he wanted that gun so bad. The gun wasn't even for sale.

My buddy was not even a big M12 guy but he shot that gun better than anything else. There was no way he was going to part with his best "shooter".

Fast forward 5 or 10 years and, except for some die hard M12 enthusiasts, there was not a large, general market for that type of gun, anymore at most trap clubs.

I am sure the large prices will pass. If that's what they are really getting for 870' and 1100's, maybe I should cash in while the going is good ;)

I once owned a D grade 4 gun set of 1100s all marked “ Matched set #2” that I bought for $4000.
If I thought that that .410 that’s going for $4000 was real I’d be more upset than I am for ever letting them go!

It's just All a Mirage, like water floating on a bone , dry, desert.... lets inflate the prices till people can't stand it any more................just set the trap and move in for the kill.
I have seen it on other sights recently , here is the holy grail SHOTGUN for just $1.4990 for a well known semi-auto that would have been $399.00 a few years ago.
Usually the same dealers/people doing the same thing. put it up for a stupid high price and the next day marking it..... SOLD....SOLD..... :roll: :roll: :roll: .
