Im bidding for a wasr but its creeping to over $1100. I just want to get some imports before theyre gone
>>48419434that's fucking retarded. You're stupid. Fuck you.
>>48419434STOP STOP STOPDon't get caught up in the bidding cycle; you'll fall victim to your desire to "win" and end up paying stupid amounts of money. Set hard limits waaaay beforehand and when they're met then make yourself walk awayI'm being the father you never had, anon. Stop bidding, you lost, now move on to another auction and try again.
>>48419434>Im bidding for a wasr ew gross>I just want to get some imports Get something good not dirty gypsy trash
>>48419434That's how it is now. Everyone is worried about either an AWB if there's a mass shooting that politicians take advantage of or a EO ban on imports. It's just like how the market was during the 4 years of obama's presidency and clinton administration
>>48419488under obama it chilled out after a bit, the panic did not last 8 years
>>48419497Sandy hook caused a huge panic I remember. Ars were going for 3k+
>>48419517Yeah, but that panic was right after an election and a mass shooting. It also calmed down not long after.
>>48419497>didnt last 8 yearsFuck me. I was like 15 then. I remember in 2012 when all that shit went around, .22 was double price till like trump year 2Oh well. Its worse now
>>48419540I was definitely buying guns through Obama's presidency and outside of designated panic times, it was fine>.2222 always goes up because of fat retard boomers who think it is literal gold
a wasr is not worth $1100. not even if they are banned and never imported again. i like ak's better than ar's but i'd rather just buy an ar (or another ar) than pay $1100 for a wasr. only an illogical retard would ever consider such a thing.
>>48419599What if all the parts are numbers matching
>>48419632still not worth that much
>>48419471>dirty gypsy trashDracula was from romania. Why would you not want a vampire Ak?
>>48419434Should have bought one out of the back of a shady "asian" immigrant's hatchback for $600 three years ago like I did.
>>48419649Vampires aren't real. Gypsies are.
>>48419434I just paid $1100 for my PTR. I'm just lucky I got it for a reasonable amount, later I checked and it had gone up to $1600. All I need now is an AK to accompany my SKS, and a .410 semi auto shotgun/or revolver.
>>48419632only the old 10/63 wasrs had nonmatching numbers. that's not a selling point.
>>48419774Not bad in these times. I think I paid 945 for mine in late 2019 but they're quickly climbing with all the fear
>>48419869....what if its a matching 10/63
>>48419774What kind?I paid that for my PTR100 (gi)
>>48419930I got a PTR 101 GIR, so it has a 18.5 inch tapered barrel and the rail (see pic related.) It's a heavy son of a bitch, especially loaded. I've got some wood coming for it, that I'll stain and install. I haven't shot it yet, since fudds clog up the gun range here, and the snow is waist deep in the mountains right now, but I managed to find some good 7.62 for not god awful prices.>>48419896I got the email from atlantic firearms right as my tax return was confirmed. Suspiciously I'm getting almost the exact amount back from the IRS as it costs to get the gun.
>>48419920it's still a trash ass wasr
>>48419455this. fucking ain't no wasr worth over 1k. If you pay that much just get an Arsenal if you can find one or an M70 (still overpriced)
>>48420015>m70Yall call a wasr gross but advocate this trash? What the fuck?>>48419978I really wanted a GIR. Mines the flat top variant. Kind of sad
>>48420214serb aks beat gypsy aks tho
>>48419455This. At least you got some other retard to spend over $1,100 for a fucker wasr
>>48419434So does everyone else. Get in line.
>>48419434You’re an idiot panic buyer. Nice job overpaying on a rifle that people used to consider literal garbage tier.
>>48419540>Its worse nowIt's not gonna get better either. Today is the worst day until tomorrow, so you might wanna stop waiting.
>>48420233>ThisWASR’s are absolutely atrocious rifles with poor QC. You COULD get a decent rifle...but you very likely won’t. You’re paying 1100 for a rifle that used to go for 500 on the high end just a few years ago.
>>48420214Oof, sorry dude. Atleast you can still get some claw mounts for a scope.
>>48420252Old WASRs were pretty bad, anything put out in the last few years is a totally solid rifle. Around a grand is definitely fine, though personally I’d spend the extra 500 for an Arsenal.
>>48420330Oh well. My ar10 holds the scope anywaysPtr will be my bush thumper
>>48420361Mine is my toilet gun
>>48419686that nigga was for real bro and he killed hella lot turks
>>48420277They're actually pretty decent rifles, but >$1100 is ridiculous.
>>48420446He lived nearly 600 years ago. He was not actually a vampire. Gypsies are alive and well today.
>>48420277I wanted to get aks and all the cool stuff years ago especially the early 2010s, but couldn't legally due to my state and age. Now I'm stuck in the present day market and I don't see it going down in the coming years. It hurts man especially on the wallet, but oh well. I am buying guns now and and small amounts of ammo hopefully I won't regret it
>>48420486I got a NIB izzy ak in 2016 for $600 kek
>>48420500I was stuck in nyc in 2016 :(
>>48419434You and everybody else buddy
>>48419434Literally just give up on imports and buy a good AR for that much.
>>48420619And then spend 3x as much on ammo. Either way, but what you want, overpaying a few hundred bucks so you can have and shoot what you want now is always better than compromising with a boring gun you don’t want or waiting a year rubbing your hands.
>>48419455>Set hard limits waaaay beforehand and when they're met then make yourself walk awayOn a website like gunbroker, do you put your max bid early and let them deal with the auto bidding thing?Or do you mentally prepare a bid, and then check back the final day?what's the best way to get a good deal guys
>>48419774>later I checked and it had gone up to $1600.Sheesh. And I felt bad paying $1250 for mine.
>>48421183You can hope your competitors aren’t paying attention and sneak in the winning bid the last 15 minutes, but in reality everyone else is thinking the same thing. Just set an alarm for the last hour, plug in your max you’re willing to pay autobid, leave your phone at home, go get drunk at a bar and forget all about it.
>>48419434just spend a grand on something good OP. NOT saying wasrs aren't, but they'll be floating around after the anti gun cucks die down.
>>48423350t. zoomerit'll go back to normal just like always, nothing ever happens
