The ad says they are a Ruger collector's association short run. And they're sequentially serialed. That said, $2900 is a lot of cash for a pair of ROA's. Apparently someone really wanted them.

I've been seeing a lot of weird stuff on gunbroker recently, though. Look through ads for relatively low cost guns, and you'll find ads with absolutely ridiculous price. I found a local ad up here for a winchester 1200. Nothing special about it. And it looks well used from the pictures. They're asking $900 or something like that. To me, a 1200 in fair used condition is still only worth about $200. If I was still living in the lower 48, I'd pay even less for it.

Gunbroker is just still crazy right now. A lot of guys used to recommend going and looking at closed auctions on there to see how much guns are selling for, but they're selling way high on all the auction sites right now.

Only if your one Ruger Stainless Steel Old Army revolver suddenly turns into a consecutive pair that are new in the box with papers and shipper and you have a letter from Ruger stating that they were 2 of only 100 produced for the Ruger Collectors Assoc. :lol: And then you would have to put them up for auction and find someone willing to pay that much for them. Then and only then would they be worth that kind of money. As everyone knows it is supply and demand that causes a gun or set of guns to bring that kind of money. With only 100 made and this is a consecutive pair the supply is limited. But the demand is not there either because you can probably count on one hand the number of people that collect Old Armys and still have some fingers left over. The guy that had those two guns found the only collector of Old Armys!!! :roll: :roll: :roll:

No.

But 47 bids showed a lot more than one interested in that auction. And three very serious bidders wound up dukin' it out there at the end;
eatyourhoney A+(34)
blaze-69 A+(1)
SUNDEVILS-68 A+(1460)
A bidding war will really drive up the winning bid. It's what every seller hopes for.

These were part of a two gun set each one of one hundred and one of two hundred so they were only half of each set I guess I should have bought the three consecutive sets that I had a chance to buy two years ago for $800 a set :shock: :shock: :shock:

Yea! All it takes is $2900 +. And then you can shoot them all you want. Me I would buy a run of the mill Stainless Old Army and shoot it. It would be a lot cheaper! :roll: :roll: :roll:
