    Mr.Maim, I stand corrected. That does look shady. I was just looking at the new seller and thinking that might be legit, but the timing would be incredible.

    Anyways, I'm sitting on all three nickel, NIB P7's - M8, M13 and M10. Despite the elevated P7 prices, I have no intention to sell; they look too good together. :)

    No worries chuckee. My theory is that the seller either forgot to put a Reserve in, or had one of the minions at the shop list the gun and didn't put a Reserve in. Owner (perhaps a consignment sale?) realizes that their precious nickel P7 M13 is going to go for just over three grand so someone deep sixes the auction by exposing one of their shill accounts and hits the Buy it Now. Oops.

    My money says that we will see this pistol again in a few weeks with the same seller adding to the listing "Listing again due to a non-paying buyer" and our October 2016 NR buyer will never touch that account again.

    Bingo. Another more diabolical possibility is market manipulation, but your theory of 'somebody F'd up' is much more plausible.
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

    I sold the P7K3 w/ 22 conversion kit to the seller a little while ago. The conversion kit was NIB when I sold it to him, but the K3 itself had been fired. Unless he changed the pistol to a NIB one the buyer should be told that the K3 was indeed fired. Also, there was never a .32 barrel when I sold the set to him, there was two .32 mags, but no barrel.

    How long ago was "a while ago"? The seller also claims he acquired the K3 "several years ago", but he's claiming the K3 is NIB which you're saying had been fired. The seller has good ratings, but wow, hard to trust anything these days.

    It's very interesting that the P7k3 seller has pulled the auction. I'm wondering if someone approached the seller on side and it was sold outside of GB. There was a Jubilee mentioned earlier in this thread that sold the same way in the mid 4's. Although it was unfired, it was not 100 percent complete.

    I believe I sold it around November 2015. It was mint.
