Yea, that is what dividing by zero in the realm of firearms looks like.
Maybe this guy thinks he’s smart and is planning on flipping singles for $60 Scumbag Cheaper Than Dirt style? I hope someone tells him that although PMAGs are in short supply currently, the polymer to make a bazzilion new ones is not so he better dump those fairly quick. I just know that Magpul has the PMAG elves running 24/7 around there ready to shit on everyone trying to pull something like this.
Winning Bidder j***r I saltue you. Part of me hopes you just registered that Gunbroker account to troll the auction with a fake bid.

The buy now price was $1500 on this gem:
It only made it up to $700. I don’t know AKs so I don’t know what a Yugo M70AB2 “thick receiver” underfolder is worth, but $1500 seems high. I guess a sweet paint job like that can command a premium though.

Coming soon to a hood near you. Think of how much of a status symbol a think like this would be! If you had this and a gold tiger striped Deagle you’d be untouchable:
Imma give these fools a choice.. tha CHOPPA or the DEAGLE. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrap BrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrraP it’s ovah! 2012 is mine playa! Rat-ta-tat-tat 100 bullets from my choppa clip make a hater sick.
*facepalm* that was the best I could do without extreme profanity.

The minimum bid is $5479, which seems steep to me. I have no idea how much those things are worth, but I think id rather have a few other guns than that one. It has been re-listed on Gunbroker a lot of times.

I first blogged about the quad stack AK magazines (and other unique AK magazines) in THIS post.
Looks like a Quad Stack 60 round AK-74 magazine was up for sale on Gunbroker – http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=162814104
3 people bid it up to $900, but that was not enough to meet the reserve! It has not been re-listed since.
The company who originally makes (made?) this magazine is Izhmash. I know nothing about them, but in the Gunbroker auction, the seller says the following:
Mega rare collectible item, original Izhmash 60 round capacity magazine for AK-74.
I find it hard to believe something that was injection molded is “mega rare” and “collectible” unless it doesn’t work worth a shit and they decided to stop selling it.
Seems like overnight, The Bushmaster ACR is now available to the public.
A search of gunbroker results in 3 auctions where. All of which are currently under $3000.
I even watched one end earlier today for $2800 (HERE)
The big question on my mind is, now that the Bushmaster ACR seems to be readily available… what is going to happen with Jesse James’ rifle?
He is the guy that won the first ACR in a silent auction (Details Here) then proceeded to put it up on gunbroker with a starting bid of $8500… only to have it bid up to its current price of $16000. There are 2 days and 21 hours left in his 14 day auction, and the reserve still isn’t met.
Oh what a difference 2 weeks can make. All I can say is that I hope he had some sort contract with that wealthy private collector, because otherwise he really shit the bed on this one. I guess if worse comes to worse he can always just keep the rifle and his unfortunate lesson in economics.
I think Jesse follows the blog, because he commented on the last post. Hopefully he can chime in and let us know what the deal is.
Looks like Jesse James, the winner of the first Bushmaster ACR released to a civilian, decided he needs money more than the gun:
He looks happy in that picture, but not as happy as I bet he is now.
Oh if only I would have followed his 3 steps to success:
1) Attend AAC Silencer Shoot
2) Place bid on Bushmaster ACR silent auction
3) Win and PROFIT
The current bid on Gunbroker is $15,000!
Pretty sweet profit so far considering Bushmaster’s MSRP is $3061
No telling what the bid will be up to closer to the auction end date of May 30.
I don’t know how much he actually paid for the ACR in the silent auction, but the post on Advanced Armament’s Blog states that $7500 was raised during the auction. Considering the Bushmaster ACR was not the only product in the silent auction, I think its safe to say that at the current bid, Jesse is already more than doubling his money. On top of that, the auction doesn’t even include the sweet AimPoint CompM4 and Suppressor that came on his ACR!!!!
According to the details in the auction:
As part of an agreement with a large private collector, I am offering this rifle to the General Public before it is stored in a large walk-in safe forever. This rifle is being offered to the General Public for a ONE TIME ONLY event, once this auction has ended the rifle will be either turned over to the Winning Bidder, or it will go to the private collector. The reserve is set at the private collector’s firm offer. If the reserve is beat, the rifle will go to the winning bidder.
I hate to think what the reserve price is!
