Back in the early 80s there was a residential section near embassy row in NW DC, a couple tried to sell their house at the going rate, around $200 K. They had no takers and almost no one looked at the house for months so they decided to raise the price to $1M......... The house sold in one week.......... Today you can't find a house in that neighborhood for under $3M.Well that makes sense!
Somewhere there is the ASKING price and finally the actual purchase price. Personally I would give a plugged Mexican peso for a Remington anyway. Don't like the look, don't like the feel, don't like 'em anyway.Called up my local gunshop today to inquire about essentials for July 4th, (1F powder and cannon fuse) and asked if they had any C&B revolvers (as I always do). The guy told me he a Pietta "BUFFALO BILL COMMENERATIVE 1858 REMINGTON" for $995.00!!
I jokingly asked if that included RBs, powder, and #10 caps....He said no, "It's a collectable, not really a shooter." My response was..."OK THEN!"
Do people really expect someone to pay that much for a Rem. replica? I know that some things are still tight, but come on! I'd hesitate to pay that much for a Ruger Old Army.....(which I fully intend to get again someday).
that thar is whut a aith grade educutayion will get youWhagh!!
