Was it a GI m1 carbine? It is still a heck of deal even it was not.

When I first got into shooting I knew very little but the job I had required that my revolver be able to fire .38 Special ammo. I had always wanted a Colt Python with a 6 inch barrel (like the one David Soul used in Starsky & Hutch). Well I passed on several good Ruger Security Sixes. Not that there was anything wrong with the Python but I later learned how good the Security Six was. I could kick myself over that.

Not like it's some highly respected piece of work like a Colt Python. But I rue the day I passed up buying an XD chambered in .357Sig for less than $400.
If it were up to me, the word "got" would be deleted from the English language.

SKS . . . .

When I first started hunting I was looking for a coyote rifle. I remember seeing an sks for $69 but didn't have a clue about it so left it there.

More recently I passed on a "Rainbow" Sig p238 NIB for just over $400. Guy was going out of business due to health problems. Reason I passed on it is that, in that moment, I was an idiot.

Life is good.
