    A couple of days ago a kel-tec PMR30 sold for $1625 on Gunbroker. I see them all selling for more than $1000 right now. I about had a fit when I paid $469 for my Tan PMR30. What the heck is going on here?

    I saw those prices. I was going to get a pmr 30 last year at a gun show for $325 BNIB. But, I was like "aw if its that inexpensive I can always get one later on around town"...man oh man lol. Keep watching gunbroker, you're probably going to see one on there for $3,000 used.

    It's insane. I had two & sold the tan one to a nice guy who really wanted it for $550. I seem to stumble upon them all the time. Probably gonna start buying what i find & putting them on GB.

    I've wanted one for quite some time. Never saw one locally. The bad thing is I bought a bunch of mags for it in case I found one. Looks like I could sell those on Gunbroker for a very healthy profit right now.:wow:

    Great for the sellers. Stupid buyers get exactly what they deserve.

    If I were you I would just hold on to the mags. Because you just may luck up and come across a sweet pmr 30. Because even if they do manage to abbra caddabra another hicap ban, you will still be able to buy the gun, just only with 10rd mags or whatever limit they decide to place on it ya know. But you will already have your hicaps.

    I have seen FN 57's on Armslist this week going for 3k. PMR-30's won't be far behind. The world has gone crazy if folks are paying those prices!

    This is why I've had a bunch of regular-capacity 11-round mags for a 4006 for a couple of years: I saw a deal on them and knew I want one eventually, it takes the pressure off to buy the next one I see.

    I have found them for 3 or 4 friends. I do tend to find them fairly often. I'd be happy to keep an eye out if any of you guys want one.

    They are going through the roof for sure!:wow:


    I paid $460 for mine, NIB w/two mags, and then $21 each for the 12 spares.

    I bet I have $2500 laying on the kitchen floor if I were to list it on GB!:supergrin:

    I think things will settle down soon when the panic subsides.

    That pretty much sums it up right there.

    Nothing more needs to be said!
