If anyone thinks "something" is overpriced, it's probably because they don't have the money to buy "it."

Garand(s) = land


It's worth what someone is willing to pay.

Not true at all

Careful with the box-cutter!

Millions were manufactured. Only worth what someone will pay. Never more, never less. Anything else is just opinion.

My Spiritual Advisor tells me that 87.4% of the time people do not have enough money to buy something they really, really want especially if it is "overpriced for their budget." She wasn't talking about cheap junk. I have to agree with her.
There certainly is a point where we just don't feel like we will pay more-even if we DO have the money; like in the CMP auctions. In my case, I got lucky with a pistol so no need to bid at auction.

So have any of these 0-66 rifles that have been purchased been taken out of the wrap and had pictures taken and posted on the Forum?

I am really curious what these rifles actually look like when you get one home :D.

If I bought one at auction, I just couldn't keep it in the wrap, I would need to SEE it. Might not shoot it but I would sure want to fondle it, especially for the amount of money they are going for :p.

I agree as well. It would be rather difficult to keep it stored in the bag. Who keeps Christmas gifts still the wrapping paper?!

But does it lose value once removed? 5-10% depreciation? Impact overall rate of return down the road?


Anxious to see/hear if anyone on the forums has removed their bag(s).

There are people who do. I am one of them. I have an auction M1 that is packed in preservative. While it wasn't sold as a correct grade or as un-issued, it does have a bore that is within new specs and the chamber is in the white. There also are several bayonets that are still in the wrap from when made. None of my M1s were bagged items though.

Correct. Just because one has the money to buy something does not mean they will. I'm sure there are people out there who could write a check for the XM-3 at its current price but won't for various reasons.

It's only a matter of time before I join you, Don.

But it will be very hard to leave it alone! I was that kid who touched everything when my parents said don't touch that.
