Cheapest Mil-surp I saw at Gander was A Russian Mosin with an aftermarket camo stock......used $189. Any and all Mausers I have ever seen there were overpriced tomato stakes.

In the last couple years, I bought a couple surplus at Ganders, a P1/P38 at $249, a small ring mauser at $120. Also bought a like new Stevens 200 at $220, an excellent condition SW22 at $159-$10 coupon. But now, I don't see good deals on surplus at Ganders, but they still have good price on used guns from time to time.

Why in the world are you engaging the GM sales people in the price debates? They don't set the price and this is their place of employment - it's like them coming to your place of employment, looking around and saying "yep, I could get this product or service cheaper elsewhere..."
because used firearms are generally negotiable in price, especially when the prices are set so high. Similar to cars or guitars. So, I tend to try and haggle with people, rather than accept the price at face value. Especially when they're as high as they set them.
