GunBroker auction number 983198541 is for a 1963 made model 94 30-30.  It appears to be in excellent condition but $2375 with a day to go?  Am I missing something?  I do love guns in that condition but just not that much!

Don’t think your missing anything…. Gun broker is a wild mysterious thing…..there was one in the swap meet section for half that the other day and my guess is he still has it(is that right Al)…..

Nice…….still don’t see the difference between yours and the other one… if I were looking I would buy yours for that price as opposed to the other one…. Bottom line, at least to me, is as long as the person buying something is happy-that’s what matters no matter how crazy it may seem to some;)

A couple years ago, getting ready to leave the Big Reno Show, I spotted a guy packing up to leave. He still had a couple guns on his table, and I saw a real nice, short forearm M94 on his table. He still had a tag on it for $1,000. All my M94’s were earlier, and I didn’t have a late carbine. So, with $800 in my wallet and a 550 mile drive ahead of me, I offered him $750 for his carbine while mentioning I had a long way to get home, and could only afford $750. He took it.

So, if anyone here wants to give me $2,000 for my drippy mint, probably unfired, 1960 vintage M94 30-30, with no box, I will be happy to sell it to you. Thanks, Big Larry

Before I even searched out this auction, I knew the lay of the land.  Sure enough, it turned out to be one of austinsguns.  He, and Chayn’s, routinely get hammer prices of double to triple what a gun will sell for elsewhere.  Through honest dealing, accurate descriptions and a return policy that is always honored, they have built a very large following of repeat customers.  Plus, they typically have nice quality items.  Many of their customers seem to have very deep pockets.  It’s worth a lot to some buyers to know they’re not going to get ripped off.  Honor among gunbroker sellers is not the general rule.
