Default WRA 2396574 on Auction

I am missing the reason for this rile's current 3k+ bid. I don't think the SN seems to be low enough for an educational rifle, and it doesn;t appear to have correct /collector parts, so I am pretty sure i am missing something?
I am in need of Education, and would be appreciated.

As near as I can tell the only WRA part is the receiver. No way it is worth that in my opinion. But the auction gets some crazy numbers.

It appears to be an OK, but not even stellar receiver. There have been several WRA mixmasters sell on the CMP forum recently with as nice or nicer receivers for half of that price.

Maybe two bidders, one that already owns the serial number one above and the other with the serial number one below this one. Can't figure this one out.

I know i'll never be smart, but I feel a little less dumb.

Thanks for the education.

Some CMP supporters have "considerable means", and consider the auction one way to donate - plus they get something they want. That is one reason CMP auction prices often "don't make sense". I wish auction prices were affordable, too. But, I still appreciate the generous "deep pockets" who help CMP be there for all of us, usually with very good prices on priceless historical weapons. I expect their support has kept CMP pricing, in general, at a point where I could afford a few.

Thanks and agree. I don't know of any organization that could provide the high quality services, ranges and mentoring of kids without this type of support. I was able to witness some of the air rifle matches at the CMP south and was truly amazed at the difference in respect, focus and self confidence exhibited all of the 100 plus teenage adults.
And shooting at Talladega sure beats the muddy corn field I am used to.

The Field Grade one I got was way cheaper and other than barrel wear, wasn't all that bad. TW of 4 and MW of 2 should be a decent shooter. There is a good Winchester barrel downstairs with pitting to replace the HRA if it isn't.
