    Post here any funny, unrealistic, or just downright pitiful sale links here.

    Examples might include cheap guns with outrageous starting bids, reserve prices or broken/incomplete auctions or even retailer listings.

    (not the place for attacking or calling out forum users here, other sites might be acceptable unless the intention is to start a fight :) )

    Wait, how does a $150 dollar gun hit $1,000+ just because it is out of stock?

    They list that they have 10 guns. They actually only have 7 guns, they sell 7 for 150 dollars but then they have no more. So they increase the price to 1000 dollars until they restock and can sell again knowing that no one would buy one at 1000 dollars.

    Easier to change the price then to take down the ad and relist it when available.

    That would lose the listing all it's page views and watchers, am I correct?

    Even listing it for a grand keeps folks like us coming back :p

    But the only ridiculous part of that one is the shipping, the battery I would see sold for 60, but it only costs 3-4 bucks to mail a battery.

    Unless it's a car battery.

    Sure I'll pay almost 300 dollars for three 40 dollar guns. They even have RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES AND 40 ROUND MAGS!!!!!! OMG!!!!

    It was a $60 nimh 9.6v 3800 battery. I'd say 20-30 would be good, especially on eBay

    You gotta figure in the price of that adapter also :p

    I was just joking somewhat, you're right you can get those batteries for half that.

    I bought a never used, perfectly fine KWA mp7 with two mags for $60 and a perfectly fine colt m4 that I plan to do tech work on for $50 two weeks ago from my step brother who has been trying to sell them forever and finally just offered them to me for those prices! I just couldn't say no... he also threw in eight m4 midcaps, three 9.6v batteries, a smart charger, a red dot sight, and a fore grip at no extra charge.
