It seems like sear prices have pulled back some in recent months....closer to $30k these days. I thought we were heading over $40k earlier this year.
A redneck's famous last words...."Hey everybody, watch this!"
that will never sell.
Will never sell.
Will never sell
Will never sell
.......I mean.....I could keep it up, but for the sake of redundancy, I'll stop there. None of the aforementioned will sell for what they are "asking".
SudS probably has a more educated and/or analytical view of these. SudS.....what say you oh end all be all of the HK MG////???????
Those all suffer from poor auction strategy. One is a clip-on RR G3; least desirable HK out there. And one is a RRPP 33, not an easy item to sell as it requires a very specific buyer.
I posted the following in the sear thread linked at the top of this thread:
There is a palpable psychology to auctions. No reserve auctions tend to end at or slightly higher than market, while auctions with a reserve price that is at market value tend to languish. That there are multiple sears sitting unsold on Gunbroker is more a function of the seller not understanding this phenomenon. As a seller, a no reserve auction is risky. I understand that many (most) may not be willing to take the risk that their no reserve HK sear fetches a low price. And yet with very few exceptions, I have not really seen no reserve or very low reserve desirable firearms sell under market prce on GB. A recent exception was the SIG PE90 that sold significantly under market. But it was incorrectly listed as a 550 and had a low buy it now price. Again, a function of suboptimal auction strategy.
