    Default Sear prices coming down?

    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.

    "Personally speaking....and only personally speaking"........I too think we're in the middle of a decline. Sure....there are examples of MG's going for crazy money, but there's also an argument for MG's going for much lower than "current" market share. Caveat:......I don't have any dog in this fight. I'm not selling....I'm not buying. I'm just watching, and trying to determine EXACTLY where that market is going.

    Cheers!!!!! And I'M NOT speaking for @SudS or @caf82313 {who think they'll hit $100K in the next 30 days}.
    Hehehehehe!!!!!!!

    What examples support that "argument"?

    You remember that post from earlier this year where I said you guys claimed we thought the current market for sears was $98k? I wasn't too far off.

    So I agree that it will stay stagnant and in the next couple of years it will start going back up, but what about other sears like the FNC, RDIAS, LL. What is the understanding of those sears. IT seems like the LL and FNC are increasing and the RDIAS and HK sears are sitting put.

    I wish you would keep going, that way you might come up with better examples. A clip-on, a push-pin, a $35k starting bid for an S&H, and a "Reserve Not Met"
    " Like you said the no reserve Fleming was the test of the market. Or does that one not count any more?

    Bro/dude/Bra/sir....whatever your choice of salutation; I have NOT ONE F$CKING CLUE on the aforementioned, as I do not follow their status'sssss. I got infected with the HK virus back in the 1980's........and the rest is history. @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////???????
    Hehehehehe!!!!!!!!!

    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.

    No reserve auction Fleming sear at $30,358 with four days to go. I would not call that stagnant.
