    some one brought it to my attention that if you paint it black and put MK -insert#- that you can make any standard item worth 50% more. what other ways do you guys know of?

    As has been discussed at length here, a surefire way to do that is to insert the word "Tactical" anywhere into the item's name or description.

    buy low sell high
    putting accessories on a gun is money spent by you for you.
    very rarely will you recoup that "custom smithed, tuned and polished" investment you made to your model 10 s&w,etc
    lucking out on an ad for a rifle, handgun, that is still nib for almost nothing will make you some money.
    OR find the fool who believes that your sar-1 is worth as much at that pre-ban poly-tec ak. now that's making money!!

    One can always....

    carve Poncho Villa's initials into the butt.

    Enhanced the value of otherwise non-descript TEC-9 doing that.

    Depending on your audience, engraving "007" on the grips of a Jetfire might work.;)

    Forge nazi proof marks and sell it to a gun show nazi.

    The easiest way to add value to any weapon is to ban it.

    Just Stamp "Property of U.S. Government" nothing they buy is cheap. They paid $1000 for a claw hammer once.

    Add bells and whistles. Take it to a gun show and convince some rube it is a one of a kind. It truly may be. I have seen this happen.:eek:

    Point it at a bank teller.

    Ask how much it is worth. Could be thousands and thousands.

    Convince someone at a gunshow that your "Ruger" is actually a "Luger" once used by the Japanese Imperial Army.

    It's worth big bucks.
