Market Pricing

One Man's Trash Is Another Man's Treasure

Check out this gizmo posted for sale at Collector's Firearms:

It's a winter trigger attachment for an M1 Garand. It lets you fire the rifle with heavy mittens on by pressing on a lever outside the triggerguard.

Collector's is selling one still in the wrapper for the low low price of $149.

I seem to recall buying one for my friend Rockhauler, still in the wrapper, for maybe $10-12 at a gunshow several years ago. Somehow, I doubt there was run on the market. Not much call for 'em these days.

I knew Collector's had a stiff markup, but DAMN!
