This gun just sold for a crazy price. Funny thing is it was on there one round at 2849.00 and no one bid on it. Next time wow it goes ballistic.

Someone doesn't know the real value here and now they have blown this way up, poor bastard now has to spend more than that gun will be worth in his life time.

It's funny how people say a gun is priced too high if a fella wants it bad enough he'll pay what he can afford nothing wrong with that imo. I've sold a couple white custom super safaris recently for what people think We're priced way too high but some people appreciate a quality gun and understand what goes into them not that you can really compare the two types of guns. Over time there are less of the grrw guns available due to damage or abuse or whatever so the prices will continue to rise imo it's a sellers market at least for now.

What Lou has stated is very true, it's all about quality and limited quantity on anything brings the serious buyers to the table, like the GRRW items.

Most of the GRRW collectors (three of the largest) passed on this rifle in question feeling it was in the $700 - $900 range to high. Neat looking setup and if in the market, here's a Cadillac.

I was in Roosevelt UT this past summer with the old smiths of GRRW. They asked a few of the guys in the diner if they know anything as to where all the GRRW guns went. One former employee said he was told many went over seas, many sold in North America and a good number are still sitting in closets or gun racks here in Roosevelt (most unfired). Once in a while at GRRW Collector Association we have someone contact us about having a kit they had bought from Doc White back in the 70's (because they were one of his patients).  Most keep their guns because they knew someone (like Doc) and just past them on. One of the Leman Trade Rifle kits was assembled by Carl Walker this summer, he remembered selling it to the owner back in the mid 70's, now passed. His wife had it assembled for one of her kids as a gift. Pretty neat as Carl has known the family most of his life.
