    Unless you bought several and never shot them these things are just staying flat. When I bought my first HK in 1986 it was $459 for a P7M8–$499 for a P7M13. Investments in firearms require significant insight into the industry. All the stuff being produced today is being built in large numbers. All of my other HKs are just run of the mill—USPc, P30, VP9, and P2000SK. I suppose my best “investment” of late was the HK MR556A1 Competition rifle. You can’t even get them in Calif any longer and they continue to climb. Just don’t follow everyone else.

    As noted, P7s of any sort are climbing in price. Just about everything else is stuck in a very flat market. Gun control measures in Congress could turn that scenario around, though....

    If your dreams come true and you use this idea. Just send a mere 3% monthly my way. Chip away at the student loans.
    That's actually not a bad idea. I like that. As soon as I get struck by lightning thrice, then hit the lottery, I'll pm you for your info so we can make the arrangements. Oh, and I'd pay off your loans and include one of the first 100 production run ;)

    True, you wonder why guns are not sealed (especially when they’re receiving your custom 1911).
    But by their nature (restricted/controlled items), a seal would have to be broken at some point. Some may deny touching your gun but per my LGS/FFL, they would have to... FedEx transfers possession/liability to FFL (why else would they require signature) > FFL opens package and confirms box/gun SN’s. And since guns are always loaded, they would (responsibly) have to rack the slide. Otherwise, why not just present/transfer the unopened shipping box to the buyer.

    Guzz- some very good points. Yeah, the serial number confirmation is what popped into my mind too, after I wrote that. I was thinking about when the NIC check is done, upon receipt of payment. But yeah, you've definitely made good additional points. I wonder, if it would be legal to put a see through panel in the lid of the box, so that the numbers could be verified without opening? But, if it is, why hasn't it been done before now?

    Im too busy stacking cases of ammo and reloading supplies, to worry about the cost of firearms. Im buying spare parts for firearms while they are plentiful and easy to get.

    Hopefully people are getting what they need these days. Ammo is inexpensive and plentiful. I have even stacked a couple of cases on 22Mag for the HK 300. I didnt shoot it for several years, because pills to feed it, were impossible to find.

    Off roster HKs are certainly an investment if able to legally get them into Cali! Well that said all off roster pistols seem to sell for close to double their standard price.

    Not by choice of the buyer. I've talked to a couple of CA residence who really feel like their wallets get r**ed by that roster list.
