    I didn't see the part where it comes with an ounce of gold.

    I just sent him the above message. I can't stand sellers trying to rip people off. Of course, the buyer would have to be pretty stupid, but that's ridiculous.

    I don't blame sellers for trying to take adavnatge of the market. That's what its all about. However, there's a point where I draw the line.

    That's just trying to rip somebody off. A buyer may confuse it with this, which is the real SA Custom Operator. There is a big difference.

    Here's the response I got from the seller.

    The auction he linked looked as though a bidding war broke out between two complete morons. Its amazing how friggen stupid some people are.

    $3000 for a TRP. Are you kidding me? :faint:

    The last three bidders had a total of two transfers.

    A two is more than double their combined IQ.:upeyes:

    Since we are on the subject of fair market value, any suggestions where you can research adequate value? Specifically, I have been wanting a Korth revolver, been having a difficult time trying to determine how much I should pay.

    For me it would be a Springfield Custom shop CMP legal hardball gun, and maybe a couple more GI's. Well maybe a GI and a half.

    That is true I suppose, if you never want to aspire to better yourself.

    A good 1911 is worth 30 Glocks at least.

    That reminds me of the Les Baer cardboard box thread where all the Glock Fanboys were screaming "I could buy six glocks for what you paid for that!" :rofl:
