There's a big difference between a potentially Bubba-created mixmaster 1911 and one that has provenance of coming out of US possession as a mixmaster.
CMP Garand and Carbine auction results and regular sales are not the same thing in the real world. This is the only place they sell for 5 to 10x the value. I have seen many times buyers in the marketplace trying to resell their auction item and taking a hit. To each his own a mixmaster is a mixmaster.
