    Default I just find it odd....

    Ok...so as this may be in the wrong section, I just find it odd, that a HK94 sells offline...within 20 mins, after being posted.....and then the OP closes the
    thread because he/she doesn't like the feedback. Just sayin........this is fishy....

    https://www.hkpro.com/forum/hk-long-g...-wts-hk94.html

    Was this a ligit sale, or BS?

    @GPSIG I'm in your corner on this one, as personally I call BS.

    Just my $.02

    My policy with sales is that the first person to put cash in my hand wins. Get over it and move on.

    I'm with @Brad4065 . @Nehalemguy I disagree with your comment (and tone) because there are rules in the forum that say whomever posts "I'll take it" gets it. The whole "put cash in my hand wins" comment is not in keeping with how an honorable sale works where you offer to sell and someone commits to purchase.
    I think what happened here is that @Sextus (I'm sure with no malice intended) revealed to @shooting systems that he under-priced the gun, and Shooting Systems realized he messed up and pulled that underhanded move, tried to deny it was dishonorable, and deflected with some comment about post count. Frankly behavior like that is what deserves to get people censured here. However, what's most likely to occur is that this thread will get locked and/or deleted.
    Also, I will add, this is why we have rules about not posting commentary in sales threads. Not that I'm not guilty of doing that myself...

    My understanding of the wts forum rules is that when an ad is posted and a member says "I'll take it" in no uncertain terms, a contract of sorts has been formed. If either party breaches, they are afoul of forum rules. I find it quite unlikely that the rifle sold in the 20 minutes between the OP and the reply.

    That said, on the spectrum of getting screwed buying a gun on the web this is a minor event.

    I don't know, it does seem shady BUT it was a STUPID GOOD DEAL! It was well under market value and I'm 100% sure I'm not the only one who would've noticed the steep discount...
    Who knows maybe he listed it on a local for sale site and someone else beat the forum. Lets just be civil and a bit rational before we start accusing other members.

    He probably sold it between the time he made the original WTS ad and before he read/saw GPSIG's "I'll Take It" post. I was online when GPSIG made the post and saw that the seller's online status was off, meaning he was offline.

    Agree..other folks the seller knows or is around knew it was a blasting deal aswell like those here...hence one jumped on it like a wet toad.

    I know the guy personally.

    He is on the up and up. I wouldn't send business his way if he wasn't.

    I have run a lot of business thru him in the past.

    I also have seen 94s go for that price lately on GB.

    I am just bummed that he didn't give me a chance at it first.

    He knows that I have HK issues.
