I saw it, but I don't like the tinned type kits, and early kits are even worse to find parts for if you want to make it correct. Didn't someone say that MÃ¤dler was probably just a retailer? It doesn't appear to be a military kit without a waffenamt.
Had been following it and attempted to place a bid...only to have Ebay take 5+ seconds to respond and state in a pop-up, there was some sort of error and to resubmit my bid! I attempted to do so but in the seconds allotted, doubt I made it in time. However, when I glanced up at the window and saw the bid at $332.00, mine wasn't even close. So...whom have we yet to hear from...perhaps "S"?
I had the exact same thing happen when I attempted to bid again. I hope someone here got it, but it looks more like it’s probably a dealer that did with the amount of feedback they had.
Had a friend bid something recently on ScrewBay. He went to up his bid near closing time and the calculator box in which you enter the new amount did not appear. Instead, another box did which displayed three check-off options...increase your bid by $1.00 or $2.00 or $3.00! WTF? His theory is ScrewBay wants to coerce you to maximize your bid earlier rather than in the final moments before closing. They are also forcing everyone into the new "managed payments" format, too. Lastly, in the recent Covid relief bill, come 1/1/22 any third party auction site (like Ebay, GunBoards, etc.) will now generate a 1099 if your sale(s) for the year exceed $600.00.
Have been chasing one of these for more than 10 years. This is only the third example I have recorded in many years of collecting and researching the rg34. And the first example that was for sale. So was very happy to be the winner. An exciting addition to the collection.
