    Goes by the shop name Arms Helper and now L Firearms. Of course he/she tried to get a money order and keeps posting the same stock photos of the rifle. The attempt to scam is almost comical if it wasn't so ridiculously sad. I asked for actual photos and to show proof of possession and this is what the idiot sends me.

    Another trick I've learned. I always reverse search the phone number on white pages before I even talk to the person. the one above above comes up as non-fixed Voip. which is usually a texting app or google voice number. People that are using one of those are full of BS/scammers 99% of the time. If its a real number it will display the actual carrier (verizon. at&t, etc)

    The posted price should have been your first waving red flag.

    Yeah it was, I've gotten some really good deals online, but nothing this great. I reported the fraudster, played along for a while to see how far they'd go.

    If it sounds too good to be true, it always is. $6000 for a HK PSG 1-They were never that cheap, not even new in the late 1980s and 1990s!! I hope this clown gets caught.

    I thought that after doing Buy it Now and then seeing how far they'd take the lie, then reporting them to Gunsamerica that they would cut it out, but no they relisted the thing under another seller name. Of course they stopped texting me after I called them out on their bs

    "This PSG1 has not been fired since it left H&K’s factory in Germany many years ago."

    For a gun that is supposedly pristine from the factory, it sure has a lot of bare metal showing where the safety selector travels on the grip housing...

    Address (above) seems to be begging for some of those 'bill me later' drop-in-mail postage-free subscription postcards for periodicals/magazines - with bonus subscription to perpetual junk mail from hell that will follow you to all corners of the earth...

    Ahahahaha I love the MSpaint "proof"

    We are seriously lacking in "ROFL" smileys. Cannot convey my level of mirth at that pathetic attempt.
