Is there a 15-minute reset with each new bid when the auction is down to the final minutes, like on Gunbroker?

I set my goal at this price and went to bed lol. I did not want to get into a bidding war with fellow collectors. I learned along time ago another will come around one day so don't get to caught up in having to have something. I could have easily went to $10,000 but when do you say enough is enough? I said 4 grand Rick B

Rick,
What is the small dimple on the back of the heel? Do all the EC's have that? Looking at the picture of the bottom inside it looks like that dimple is visible there as well. Never noticed that before.

I have seen it on and off early on but never pinned a time frame and think it was just a periodic test for strength.. Here are a few. Rick B

WOW!! You guys are nuts (so am I but that's another story altogether).

Tell me, even if the all of the correct parts are available and the Rifle re built, is a parts gun worth more than $4000 ???

I have seen them go for as much as $15,000 as a sales was done at my home after I verified everything to be correct. If you can keep the total under this you are doing well. I own a test receiver but miss my Educational's I had and figured I would give it a shot. Heaven knows I have a few stocks for it Rick B
