Hit the auction this morning when it opened. The Krag was one of the first items. It was only me bidding against one other guy. If I had not been there, the guy would have walked with it for $300 out the door. I may have lost, but he got it at $950. It was in really nice shape, but I wasn't willing to go that high. I did get my P14 that I have been watching for. Out the door for $300. It's not a show winner, but for a hundred year old gun, she looks good. It is all matching and they are hard to come by.Wood is in decent shape as well as the bore. I picked up another #4 Enfield really cheap. It is in good shape, so I will sell my other one at one of the gun shows. I picked a bad time to pick up a burger. They had a K31 up for auction that was in nice shape. I have one so I wasn't looking. I would have bid had I known it would go for $175 out the door. Hunting rifles and shotguns go quicker than military down in this area. I also missed out on a coach gun. It was an American made with the exposed hammers. Really nice looking gun, but I was set on the Krag. Had I known how high it would go, I would have grabbed the coach gun.
At home for a little while, then it is off to the Ducks Unlimited Raffle. I have been to a couple of the Friends of the NRA raffles, but this will be the first Ducks Unlimited.Usually bump in to people from work and the club at these events. Want to get there a little early to look around. I will definitely hit more of the gun auctions in the future. The auction house is close to my house and there are some outstanding deals to be had.
