1. Hey All! Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board. They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things. The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to. DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES! They often state something like this: ”Hello! Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]” If you receive any strange messages: Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not. Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out! Beware of anything that might seem fishy! And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username. You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our! All the best! And be safe! Jim

    In the end it is all about what the buyer is willing to pay for something they will likely never use.

    The Zeiss is worth around $500 or so, and the peep is worth $150. That leaves about $2350 in the gun. The stock's fiddleback is pronounced and and very attractive to most eyes, which is probably the buyer's justification for paying a premium.

    Most of us have paid a premium for something that was personally appealing to us, so it is understandable that when an item is personally appealing to more than one person (each of whom have adequately deep pockets) that it goes for more than its normal market price.
