Amazing to me anyhow, what some people (collectors) will pay for odd guns. I was just checking a used gun site, (Yankee Artifacts), where they had two BAR hunting rifles with scopes, one 30-06, one 300 mag; asking about $650 each, for what I'd consider pretty desirable rifles. Next a Spanish destroyer carbine, which seems about as useless a gun as you could find, and they wanted more money for it than the Brownings. I remember when those were selling for about $50. I know, you can find all the BAR's you want, and the destroyers are scarce, but still, I know which one I'd rather have.

Destroyers used to be plentiful and dirt cheap. Has that changed, or is it an isolated seller trying to get something for nothing.

i dont know if they are rare but i do belive they are pretty scarce. i read befor that they only made 50,000 of them. last year i saw a destroyer for around 600 on simpsons site.if i wanted a BAR i could order one brand new from any gunshop in america, im sure they have made ALOT more then 50,000 BARs



i hope the brazilian vz24 guerilla rifles appreciate as well as the destroyer has, they only made 15,000 of them. i picked one up not too long ago just for how uncommon they are.

Yankee Artifacts does have some very desirable guns from time to time.
