An experiment in price gouging.

Arisaka bolt.  It was used by the emperor himself.  Probably.

Rare Gewehr 1888 Commission Rifle double trigger.  It was owned by the Fuhrer himself.  Also probably.

And finally a stripped Mauser C96 Broomhandle Bolt. In bad condition, however it was touched by a goddamn celebrity (me) so that makes it valuable.

Okay, so that last one was mostly a test auction to see if people will overpay for junk.  I have witnessed a $200 Argentine 22lr conversion kit sell for $300, so I'm thinking ebay gunowners are either morons, bad at googling, or are simply rich folks who just don't give a damn and are buying through ebay out of convenience.  Either way, I intend to bank off it.

eBay allows gun parts again (also buy my stuff)

 According to a post on Calguns and The Highroad and a sudden influx of gun barrels for sale on ebay, I guess eBay finally caved in.  I don't give a shit if the president of eBay is a supporter of anti-gun organizations.  If you guys wanna boycott them, fine, that means more deals for me and I'll still get more bids on my auctions than I ever will on Gunbroker.

Also, I like TennJed's satirical post on people who boycott anything and everything:
I am getting very hungry since I started boycotting all merchants that restrict firearms sales. Living off beef jerky from basspro is getting old. Hopefully the local grocery will quit hating my freedom and start selling firearms. I mean they sell knives at the grocery store why not guns

Anywho, buy my T/C barrel and stock set. Wait, I change my mind, I'm keeping the stock!  Instead, buy my super rare, one-of-a-kind Kirst Konverter 45 Colt Conversion Cylinder.
