Best hold onto your vintage remingtons tightly right now

Collectors are saying since they went bankrupt the demand for the vintage models has been going off the charts and prices increasing daily  to match for good used guns

They say vintage 700 BDL's will be 2000 each by the end of the year if you can find one to buy and old wingmasters will double in value

 

Cheers

Had a young fellow contact me from Alberta looking for a used Marlin 30-30. He said nothing out there. Now I would have thought a Marlin 30-30 would be common here. Phoned a buddy who said they are hard to find now. Yesterday a fellow posted that the Henry 308 he bought last year is now 3x the amount. Wonder where prices will be at the end of the year?

Prices are up on everything and guns even new ones are flying off the shelf, not surprised old guns are getting swept up too.  Everyone is on a buying spree.

I remember watching bambi for the first time when I was little and my favourite part
was when they killed bambi's mother because I knew somwhere the hunters
family was eating good that night never understood why they made him out to be the
bad guy.

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but We are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

Agree but this is more because of the end of the old true 1816 remington company they say, Collectors are driving this

Even if they reopen with the same name and models the collectors are saying it is like they are no longer true remington firearms  and they don't want those

 Sounds like it is going to be like the winchester pre 64 and post 64 craze some day

There are a few for sale here but the prices are high, around the 1000 dollar mark. Anything less and they disappear fast.

Jesus, I got a marlin .30-30 that is 1975 mint condition 1 box through it that I paid $250 for it 6 years ago.  I might have to take invoice of the real world value of my collection now.

Many are not buying as they figure prices are up but honestly if one is looking for something the lowest price maybe right now. Just look at building materials. Things never really return to what they were. In 1980 I can remember buying a 307 new for $300. Today used they are selling between $1100 and $1400. How can they come down when all Winchesters new are closing in on $2000 and they were up before the pandemic.

No money around either. Many are just trying to hold on not buy guns right now

The big drop out west in the oil patch has hurt a lot of people all across canada and then the virus hit to take even more out of their good paying jobs

Terrible down this way the guys home that have not been unemployed for many years some have not had work in over a year or more sad.png

 Awful to say but not a bad thing right now to be on a small fixed pension

 

Have a friend that has made baby barns for like 25 years for his mad money. Quite a few a year and normally has a list right now to make .

Had to stop says no one will pay him for what it costs him now to make one until lumber prices prices drop sad.png which is figures won't be this year and he was buying full skids of plywood and 2x4's to get the best price possible so cannot do any more to get the price down

Nothing is coming down , theres no shortages in lumber , companies have lots of supply , just using the pandemic as a excuse to drive up prices after arse pick liberals passed put all kinds of money , greed took over everywhere . OSB is up $11 a sheet more in last month and half and will hit the $50 plus tax mark by April/ May . paid $32 plus tax a sheet , it now sits at $43 local plus tax local . Priced roof trusses yesterday $1900 for 13 trusses 24 ft long , same material list to make them from a mill $900 . No brainer there !

Time start dropping some wood for processing . Gun prices are thru the roof , a Ruger M77 new is $2240 plus tax from dealer out west , no wonder used ones are $1000 plus in less than stellar condition . Even budget rifles are now $7-800 easy .

I have to agree however I was shocked when the guy at the gun counter just told me people are still buying up the guns like crazy. I can't sell one. Must be credit? By the way all firearms are on sale at CT in Greenwood, that's weird.

Wouldn't be surprised if some places will get out of the gun business with new laws coming in all the damn time. Not worth the hassle.  Green Diamond in Halifax did.

Few seem to be selling on nutz unless something rare or special. Seeing a lot being bumped but no wonder the prices they have on some is crazy IMO

The EE on nutz is flooded with handguns right now and few buying. Lots seem to be dumping their handguns this time :(

And I would say you are 100% right on the credit card purchases

Every time another bill is passed we lose a few more it seems

 One has to remember they say if a city bans handguns that includes a business selling them there also sad.png which is something never seen in the past

From what I hear 80 people at our club did not rejoin out of approximately 300. Guess fees will now rise.
