    COLLECTORS, BAH-HUMBUG! is it a one of a kind, yes. is it really worth $90,000.00? not in my book! you could buy 100 standard colt 1911's for that price. i would rather have $90,000.00 of guns that i can use, than have one 90k safe queen.

    You get a lot more than just the gun, but it still wouldn't be worth it to me unless I could make a profit on it later.

    This part is good too.

    If a man were wealthy enough to afford such an item, that would make it worth it IMO.

    I wonder what would happen if you tried to run a 250gr LRN with a compressed charge of IMR3031 through it?

    Just thinking out loud.

    Hello friends and neighbors // I hope it goes to someone that would use it for EDC.

    /\ this basically sums it all up. however, there are apparently 188 people that don't feel the same way

    I have it on good authority that the leading bidder is Charles Schummer. He just says all those nasty things about guns to keep the biding low.

    :D

    I found two things interesting in the auction.

    One, that it comes with two magazines. Which seems a waste, as it is unlikely to ever be shot.

    Two, that it cannot be sold in California.

    What could Les Baer (or fill in your preference in gunsmiths here) make for 10% of that?

    So you're saying my $100 bid isn't gonna win???? :cuss:

    On a serious note, that does look like a sweet pistol. Wonder if it'll ever get a round put through it by the lucky bid winner.

    how is it worth 90 grand?

    Better hedging on a full auto something or another.

    The same way the Sears and Roebuck Peacemaker is worth $1million. There's only one of them and that's all there will ever be.
    Not saying I would pay it even if I could afford it, but I can see the intrigue. It has desireability and rarity, two big components of what makes something valuable.
