Default I can't believe I just sold it for that

I put my Plum Crazy, composite, AR lower up for sale on GunBroker.com. I set the buy-it-now price at $400. Somebody just bought it at $400.

$400!? I paid $99 for it early last year.

Congrats. I'm not surprised. I've seen $600 300 blk uppers sell for $1400 lately. I'm contemplating swapping out the barrel on my AR and listing it for $2500.

I am about ready to dump an AK clone and a dozen or so magazines. I have seen them go for over $1000.00 sales on GB.

I'm thinking about dumping 5 ounces of silver to fund a build for the quicker (and higher) profit return.

Supply and demand. I'm kicking myself for not buying 10 lowers when I had the chance.

Debating putting my OMNI polymer lower I bought on sale from PSA for $39.95 out there on an auction website for $1,000 just for entertainment purposes to see how desperate people are.

Do I expect it to be bought? Hell no.

Will I complain if someone does buy it? Double hell no! haha

Excellent, but an educated consumer will wait till the dust settles to buy. Supply and deamnd is too high for me to buy anything right now...

I've got a 12 ga pump (mossberg 535) in brand-new shape. I've got a newer 835 (all camo) that I plan to use for turkey. So... I don't need the 535. I WAS going to sell it, but figured that it wouldn't be worth the trouble/$$$ ... but now, I ought to at least get what I paid for it.

I've shot less than a box of ammo through it.

Once the BS starts to settle, I probably wouldn't be able to sell if for $100 .

I'm currently about $700 into a build I intend to sell for Atleast $2k. I expect it will cost me around $900 when all said and done.
Spikes tactical punisher lower, 300blk stainless fluted barrel, freefloat railed handguard.
Should sell within the next 2 weeks. Lol
