Dear God, what is it like in your funny little brains?

Lots of cool deals here. The Soddy-Daisy, TN popo is auctioning off some seized stuff as well as internal usage equipment. The auction company does ship, fyi.

Particularly cool: an electronic, in car, long gun mount. https://compassauctions.hibid.com/lot/84430576/big-sky-racks--inc--els-300?ipp=10

quote:

This lot contains a Big Sky Racks, Inc. ELS 300 electronic gun rack. This rack came straight out of a patrol vehicle to us, still has the handcuff key lock as the back-up. Wiring is still connected and just needs a switch and power source to activate it. Does NOT come with mounting hardware, switch or handcuff key.
Currently $5 - I may buy it just for giggles and put it in a truck or something one day.

Full auction: https://compassauctions.hibid.com/catalog/257508/firearms--ammo--and-accessories/?ipp=10

Doesnít come with a handcuff key (not that those are hard to find) but that shouldnít be an issue:

Does that Spanish Mauser look worth picking up? It seems to be in okay condition, though the bolt looks a little rough?

Unrelated, that Sears fudd gun is interesting, I forgot they had their own line of (other peopleís) guns long ago.

The Remington 1903 is a very early production one for them, which is kind of neat. January 1942, 4th production month. However, the barrel is import marked and I can't tell if its the original one or not.

Yeah, I didn't click through because I was on a phone at the time (mostly I was also trying to signal boost this thread because the auction ends soon-ish and needed something to post beyond "people should read this thread") and woof, that stock is ROUGH.

I would have bit at that if I had a place to shoot. Ah well.

Also there's a Finnish Mosin in there at 300. It'll probably keep going up but gently caress it, take a swing. I would.

That still hurts my brain, pre-bids or not. It's like having a semi-blind auction in two places at once.

Yeah, the proxibid thing is super common. You'll see auctions listed there, hibid, and sometimes on auction houses own platforms. They basically pull them together once livebidding starts. Even rock island auctions does this.

Pro-move: search for stuff you're looking for on proxibid (largest platform), go to auction houses own site, see if you can submit an absentee bid. Most of the time you can, often for much lower buyers premiums since you're cutting out at least 1 middle man. Added bonus: on a lot of places other people won't see your bid.

I registered with the auction house to bid and they actually called me to confirm my identity. So itís either a very convincing scam, or the site is legit.

Proxibid is legit at least but make sure you take a look at the auction percentage cause itíll be anywhere from 10% through 20% premium over whatever you bid and win at.

I didn't bid in anything in this auction, but I was bidding on a Swiss G-11 in another one. They had their stuff listed on 4 websites plus a live local auction. I was winning it on the site I was using, it wasn't even at my max bid, but my max was outbid on two of the others.

Listing across sites seems like a system that could be abused by unscrupulous auctioneers, but on the other hand, I guess if it helps people get their stuff sold for decent prices I cant really fault them for cross posting. I'm just ready for poo poo to settle down again so I can go back to going to local auctions and get good deals on old guns because there just happens to be no one interested in them among the 200 people there.

I feel bad selling ammo for so much. I bought 1k of 9mm back in August maybe, for $400., then another later for $500. Now these 100 packs are going for $110 locally. If I sell to anyone (like with purchase of something else), most I can charge is around 65cpr or I feel guilty.

I think I posted it before but I sold all my steel-case ammo to a local gun shop for 75cpr. He flipped it for twice that. Win-win.

Of course, now Iím handloading like mad to fill that void in my training ammo, but at least Iíve got components on hand for it.
