    Because I think scoring an M&P Shield 9MM for $380 in a trade (plus transfer) is really good.

    Lest this be a brag thread on one item the RIA 1911 for $325, the tikka t3 with the leupold vx1 rings and scope for $525 and my recent Garand acquistion are also up there too.

    Honorable mention goes to my use of Amazon credit to fund deals. lol

    During the height of the Cinton gun ban scare, I traded a Glock 19 with 3 pre-ban mags, 500 rounds of 9mm and a hundred bucks for *three* clean police trade-in S&W 65-3 .357s with 3" barrels and round butts.

    Historical perspective has been kind to that deal.

    Traded a Ruger 77 in .338 for a 60's era .222 Rem benchrest rifle at the gunshow. After I sold off the Redfield 3200 scope, I figure I'm into the rifle for almost $100. Sure it's dated and won't win matches, but it will put 50 gr slugs into 3/8" or better at 100 yds. It does win the p-dog matches, though.

    I wrote a couple Macros in Microsoft Excel for a NIB Taurus Raging Bull .44 Magnum with 6" Barrel.

    1 Hour's worth of work and a $25 transfer fee.

    I found a Surefire foreend for a Remington 870 at a gun show for $35.
    These things are worth nearly as much as the shotgun they mount on.

    Some of my better finds

    model 10 ppc gun fully customized for $360
    *M6 scout 22 hornet/.410 shotgun for $125 (wish I hadn't sold it for $175)
    Ruger Mark 1 bull barrel for $150
    Interarms SS virginia dragoon .44 magnum for $300
    Interarms SS walther ppk for $300
    U.S. Arms Co. SAA 357mag. for $255
    HK USP .45 for $400

    *that m6 scout still chaps me...I had no use for a 22 hornet at the time, and the gun was a novelty more than a tool, inaccurate and ugly as hell, but damn I wish I'd known they are worth about 5x what I sold it for.....

    Oh wow, I've gotten so many good deals over the years, they almost (almost) outweigh the amount I've thrown away learning what not to buy! ;)

    My most recent was a 1994 Marlin 1895SS for a little over $300 including the scope. This gun shoots one hole groups at 100 yards with my hunting ammo. Never selling it.

    22" OD green Remington 1100 tactical with mesa tactical 8rd side saddle, 3 chokes and enlarged safety and bolt release. Probably worth around a grand, maybe a smidge less.

    $580 :D

    Ain't gonna lie I've had some nice deals come my way but the heaviest in my favor was a used RIA GI straight up for a LNIB DPMS Panther 2 mags and 250rds of ammo. I also have a Colt M4 I'm in for less than $300. Oh and a pair of Glocks that I'd be pushing it at $600 in the both of them. Then there was the .270 I got for a wheelless broken boat trailer. Like I said I've seen a deal or two in my time. :)

    snagged an svt-40 last year for $225. Got my Redhawk + 600 rounds of ammo this year for $500. There are others, but those two I am most pleased with.

    .45 ACP Beretta CX4 for $350.
    Pristine M59 Yugo SKS and 1,780 rds. of ammo for $550.
    Double date MO marked Tula Hex Mosin 91/30 for $100.
