It's tv boys. You think its really that dramatic for us to "hunt" alligators?

Participating in a gun buyback program because you think criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbor has too many kids.

I WAS the proud owner of 45+ 100% A+ ratings on the old itrader system.

I watched that episode too. The serial number was close to being one that would have belonged to the Roughriders, but no cigar. The stock had been altered like it had a display plate or something on the side. Fairly nice, unaltered carbines and long rifles rarely go north of $1000. When I was in the market 2 years ago I saw an original carbine, slightly altered but every bit as nice as the one on the show go for $600 on Gunbroker. Their expert must own a bunch of Krags that he needs to sell for a premium.

You need to remember this is a produced show. No one would stay interested in the show if every find was just a typical real world value. B.T. Barnum at its best. I am sure there are a string of producers that recommending that the values should be higher than they are to draw excitement to the finds.

Just my two cents, opps make that $100 bucks

I saw a few minutes of that show once when the remote batteries went dead.

The guy rolled a 'valuable' motorcycle up a ramp into their trailer. Front wheel off the ramp end, and the frame at the motor GROUND to a halt halfway onto the trailer.

AP CEO probably didn't see it until after airing.

So yeah - I suppose the remainder bikes of that model did go up slightly...

The boys have a contract with several big restaurant chains to supply stuff to decorate the restaurants. As said before the show is staged and than filmed.

Absolutely "0" Krag carbines in that serial # range. Only two made with 1894 stamped receivers, they had long stocks, and the whereabouts of both are known!
