What gun/guns have you sold and later regretted selling?
Most of them. It would be easier to list the ones I did not regret selling.
Every one I ever sold to some degree. In order of the ones I most regret.
Colt python 1980s production 4"
Mauser k 98
S&W 44 mag 8.3/8 nickel
10/22 bull barrel stainless
My mossberg 500.
I regret selling my little Rossi .357 mag snubbie, but it's the Mossberg I regret selling the most.
I had a Russian Makarov... Its was before I discovered I had a Russian mil-surp fetish.... Now I can find everything but a Russian one....
Beretta 96FS. I recently bought another one, but the new A1 model.
My marlin 30-30
An Inox 92, a P-01, a P239 and a Colt King Cobra.
That one would be one to cry over!!
Some times I regret having to sell my HK91.
I don't regret selling any of the guns that I have sold. Total is at 2 for the moment. The reason is that everytime I have sold a gun it has been for a gun that I wanted more. Those guns are still in the collection and I have only parted with guns that I have covered by other guns in those calibers. The two that I have let go of are:
Smith & Wesson 1000m 20 gauge
Winchester 1300 Slug Barrel shotgun
These were replaced with an RIA 1911 and Smith & Wesson M&P 15-.22.
My Kel-Tec SU-16
mak90 i bought new for 75$ thought it was way overpriced at the time lol, my old taurus pt92af, my old para p-10
I sometimes regret selling a Remington 30-06 ADL, and the only reason I regret selling it was because it was a tack driver.
The guns that hurt the most were the ones I could have bought but didn't. I just assumed I would find another Styer bull barell for a great price, or another FN bolt action with ivory inlays in a .308 rather than 30-06. I was wrong.
Live and Learn
I've only ever sold 4 guns. Lost a couple to theft, couple more to a house fire.
Only two that I really regret was the Colt Combat Commander I traded in 1982 for a shotgun and some other stuff. Now the Colt would be worth 3 times as much, the shotgun the same as then.
The other was the Ruger New Model Super Blackhawk .44 mag, 7.5" barrel, that I pawned during a time of double unemployment in the household. Never was able to get it out of pawn, the second time.
You had a Taurus pt92af also! It was a great gun. I could not refuse the offer made. Bought a Wilson Commander w/ the proceeds.
Traded them off, making room for other guns (all were fun)
