    Yeah I saw that too. I'm waiting for the GB user name 'Shill_bidder'.

    What a travesty... A fool and their money are soon parted.

    Definitely a bit odd. It looks like “gunbroker.com-user” has been a member since 2007 though the seller “Country_Surplus” has only been a member since 2016.

    I actually wonder about the “buyer”. Looks like the sale didn’t go through because of an undisclosed “issue”.

    Hmm... that's weird.

    Either that or the buyer somehow found this thread, or someone who knows discussed the issues with him...

    That slicked up greased and stock wanked rifle is worth no more than $1200 in my opinion, tops, and it "sold" for $3500? IMHO, looks like the old Gunbonker "winning" bidder There is a significant amount of shill bidding on Gunbonker IMHO. Some serial Gunbonker dealer has a pretty decent item which is going to hit a normal price, then suddenly a couple NR or 3 feedback in 3 years sleeper bidders jump in and run it up to 100-300% high retail / ridiculous? This conduct and such people are contaminating our hobby. Because, some potential seller gets respectable $1500+ offers for something, then the looks on Gunbonker and sees such a thing "sell" for $3500, then suddenly you're someone trying to rip him off when the real fraud is the shilling BS and market games. We see this in the NFA market where someone will list something for an outrageous price so that he can then sell that something for more by pointing to his own listing somewhere else that it is worth that.
