I have'nt seen a sear posted in a long time, now there has been 3 in 48 hours...all at "reasonable" (I know thats a relative term) prices. What gives?
This is the first thing I thought of. If you read some of the financial articlesMaybe it has something to do with all of the foreclosures across America hurting the economy?
No, they have not been sold yet. I know, because one of them has my name on it. They were being sold at $12,500 each. I suppose somebody with a ton of cash lying around might buy 10 of them and try to flip them for $13,500 each or something, but that's not THAT much cheaper than what they've been going for lately.maybe the current crop of sears are from someone who has an inside line on if those 50 sold or not.
a flood of 50 sears on the market may (hopefully) bring the price down a bit.
I don't know about not being able to sell 50 in a few months. In addition to the one I wanted, I know of 4 others that were spoken for by 2 other people, and that was by about the 2nd day the offer went up.I seriouly doubt anyone could find 50 buyers to purchase 50 sears with no trigger pack for $12500.00
They would have to be priced around $9,000.00 to $10500.00 to move all of those in that short of a time period.
GPSIG: There will never be new machine guns for civilians period & the worst case senario is that Hillary removes all firearms & machine guns which is possible but they better hire the Millitary to do it.
If they're smart they'd hire someone else's military to do it. I doubt our boys-in-green would turn on us that badly, nor would they want to get shot one by one working for dabitch. And they would.GPSIG: There will never be new machine guns for civilians period & the worst case senario is that Hillary removes all firearms & machine guns which is possible but they better hire the Millitary to do it.
Call it 5 :350: and they are in G3 SEF packs according to the Sturm ad and an email I received from the broker. He also said that over 20 had already been spoken for as of 2 weeks ago.I don't know about not being able to sell 50 in a few months.

This is ironic on several levels - first that the two worst case scenarios are opposite conditions. The second is that while either of them would be the worst case for someone who already has a bunch of cash tied up in them, #2 would be the best case for anyone that doesn't yet have any. And since I do, let's hear it for the status quo! Hip hip, hooray! But I don't think they'll stop transfer. There simply aren't any big news-worthy crimes committed with registered NFA weapons, and I'd think it does still generate quite a large tax revenue. It's a lot like cigarettes - they'll sue them, tell everyone how bad they are, ban them from public places and (in some areas) even from your own car or home, but I can't see them EVER completely banning them - it would cost the government billions. In 2005, the feds raked in $7+ billion, and states took in $13 billion. I have no idea how many MG transfers there are every year, but at $200 each, it could still be a significant amount of money.Call it 5 :350: and they are in G3 SEF packs according to the Sturm ad and an email I received from the broker.

I've considered the possibilities for the future of transferrable MGs and personally, the 2 most likely worst case scenarios for buying/owning an MG in my opinion are:
#1 Transfer is frozen
#2 New mfgr civilian MGs are allowed again
Number 1 would suck especially for those with BIG $$$$ invested already, but ultimately, you still end up being one of the relatively few with a machine gun for life so if you don't mind losing the investment aspect it really becomes a moot point as you still get to be one of the cool kids till you die. Number 2 IMHO would almost be worse simply due to having basically tossed money down the tube on a 20 year old "rigged" part when it would theoretically be possible to do a full RR conversion with all genuine factory parts and still come out roughly $10k ahead.
Supply is fixed (perfectly inelastic), and therefore the only explanation for increased market price is a shift in the demand curve to the right (increased demand).Where can you document that the demand for NFA weapons is always increasing?
