Yep! Five times I’ve missed out on a Uberti built Remington revolving carbine! I’m beginning to think there’s actually only one in Australia that keeps coming on the market once a year.

I found a pedersoli 72 cal double rifle on there one night, tried ringing about a dozen times to buy it it consecutively in the morning,when I got through to the shop the bloke told me the other worker was currently on the other line selling it! f***ing spewing ! Don't know how the other guy got through when they wouldn't answer my calls.....

yup. i've looked at a few things he's got at way over inflated prices. i bought two small items that were no problem. definately won't buy a rifle from him then . your story confirms my suspicions

I’d like a marlin 57m
Only seen one come up for sale in the last two years and it sold in a day.

What about some kind of bucket list thread?
If you have something to sell you could check the thread to see if someone else is looking for one?
