Anybody been watchin the prices?!

Ruger Old Army, 200th Anniversary. Seven and a half, adjustable sights, Turning mark on the cylinder and a little wear on the barrel.

That pistol is at 350.00 with no bids.

Two Colt 1860s unfired in boxes. Started at 888.00 and no bids.

These auctions end in eight hours or less.

Of five ROAs up for auction recently three went unsold with bids under 400.00.
One was sold for 330.00. A stainless Steel model went for 455.00.

Most of the ROAs with starting prices over 500.00 don't get any bids.

I shot my wad at the gun show so I will not be among those who are getting out their wallets.

I just bought an Uberti Walker from Cabelas on Monday. It won't show up until tomorrow. I don't think I feel like shelling out green backs when my latest purchase is still enroute. The two virgin SS ROA's I purchased about a year ago set me back about $495 each. I think that seems to still be the start point for unmolested SS ROA's.

mine, lets see what this one goes for. Ends in about 5 hours.

$400 for a used blued one without the original box or papers seems kind of steep. But you may get lucky.

Will Match Price

Tell you what. Whatever the Ruger in above link on Gunbroker goes for, I
will sell mine for same price. How about that.
