    Finned setstroyek M91 mosin nagant. Gave it to dad for father's day. Paid 75 bucks, haven't seen one in similar condition for under 500-600. Worth it though, he loves it.

    Many years ago, because I wasn't using it much, I sold my Colt National Match (pre Gold Cup), and got full retail book price. A few years later, the world discovered that exact model was made for a limited time and numbers. It was then worth almost 10X what I sold mine for. :<(
    I haven't sold a gun since, unless to a family member.

    a pre- '73 Ruger Black Hawk .357Magnum with factory holster. Couldn't pass up the offer. $500 plus a TC Black Diamond .50cal, I bought the Black Hawk for $200.00.

    Remington SPS 300 Blackout, the rifle was poorly made the chamber was of centre I complained but was told it was within manufactures specs, it would not chamber factory rounds, I was told the same thing, all in all it was a lemon I will not buy a new Remington product again.

    I've become interested in long range precision shooting (a very expensive sport!) so I've been selling off most of my marlins, just worked out a trade for my 336CB in 38-55. The 1893 is next!

    I've only ever sold one gun and it was a Glock 22. The reason was that it was redundant. Only need a few .40S&W pistols, that one was one too many and I lost no money in the transaction.

    A few years ago I culled the herd and sold 7 or 8 at a local auction. Did ok, made a little money. I don't remember all of them but there was a Stevens, I think Mod. 23, double 12 bore, a hacked up 1903 Mannlicher/Schoenauer, an 1899 Savage carbine in 303 Savage and I think it is a "Cross" Ithaca in 12 bore. All of them have since been replaced with a lot nicer rifles, drillings and a much better 1903 M/S.

    K31, need the cash for an instrument rating. Actually had to cull quite a few over the last year for that reason (finishing up my CPL and getting my multi engine rating), another k31, two Hakims, two FN49's, a SVT-40, a Rasheed (still have an excellent shape one), and two K98k's. Need to sell a MAS36/51 also.

    I bought them all knowing i'd have to sell most of them, I did buy 4 guns this year that aren't going anywhere, so yeah...

    Wait upon further reflection I acutally bought 6. Huh. Ah well.

    Just sold a Winchester M94 in .25-35.
    I've got a safe full of guns yet i tend to shoot the same 3 every week.
    Then in quick succession a couple of my "one day i will own one" guns came on the market and i just had to buy now or miss out and wait for another eternity.
    This meant my safe was beyond capacity and my finances stretched so i looked at what i had, decided on what i won't ever sell or still use regularly and those that I wouldn't miss if they were gone.
    I advertised 10 guns. I don't intend to sell 10 but i'll see which ones will sell for a fair price until there's room in the safe for the newcomers and the finances are restored.
