Thread: Ridiculously cheap?

    Ridiculously cheap?

    Alright lads just browsing holts auctioneers when I cam across this Full Details for Lot 1113 : Holts Auctioneers

    surely this should be about 5 times the price maybe more??

    Yeah that seems wrong. I reckon they've made a mistake on the website. Regardless of estimate, it'll gonfor more than that I'd imagine

    yeah, but you don't know what the bidding ended on ;-)

    I just bought an FN 7x57 listed at 300 and paid 650, still happy with it, but the guide prices are set to attract attention I think

    Lots of any interest are always priced low, specificaly to get interested parties bidding.
    By putting a low estimated price they attract more bidders.
    If they put the price they are expecting you would only get one or two bidders.

    To be honest the price at auction has very little reflection on the new shop price, and the luxus versions of blazers Sauers, even Sakos never hold their value: there seems a default price of 1,000 to 1,500 for top end rifles unless it is a traditional Rigby etc. if it is in the bid now auction it has failed to sell in the main Auction and the seller probably wants rid. You might get lucky and your bid might be accepted and you might get a bargain. Most of these rifles are bought as almost fashion accessorys by somebody who is getting into hunting - buys all the kit etc and then finds another interest. Or has gone bust - either way it's all being sold.

    Sneaky buggers aren't they! Still if I had the money I'd pay 5k for that without wincing!

    Bonhams have one too, so you're spoiled for choice. 3 barrels with it, 2 scopes and mounts, but a higher estimate.
