Right now, due to availability I think that anything under 1k is gonna sell, and quickly at that. I admit I do like the looks of em.. but I want that GC NN way more..
Gotta love the gougers tho.. anything for a little extra profit..:shakehead:

Ummmm, normally a Spartan is like $625-50. The RO's around here are normally $750. :supergrin:

I flagged it as overpriced and it is down now... Dunno if it is why, but glad it is down...

Wish they where that around here I tried 2 different shops and both quoted me at 800-950. One of the shops is my normal guy his prices are normally with in 10-30 dollars of Budsgunsonline. No clue why the high mark up in Florida.



I didn't know how much Range Officers where no one with in 50miles can get Spring Fields or has any in stock right now. Except 1 shop and he a joke he has a Spring Field GI for around 850... yes 850 your not reading that wrong. He way over priced anyway on everything. I went in to check on ammo one day and a box of 38special was 40bucks. I think the only thing that keeps him in business is the fact he the only gun range with in 20miles.

The 1911 is my favorite but I wouldn't buy that gun. Why did they blacken the grip safety and other parts? I think that looks like crap but each to his own. I'm going to pick up a Springfield Range Officer. My dealer quoted me $745 and I'm waiting for it to come in.

Ah, the "gouger" word again. Private sector, free market economic principles determine the seller's price.

Yup. Then he can go home and say, "Honey, I'm home; and I got gouged because I'm too farcking stoopid." :rofl:

I am amused by the fact that people feel the need to "report it" to the website. If you think it's overpriced.....don't buy it and move along. If some dumb sh1t doesn't do his homework and overpays...that's his loss. Don't ding the seller for trying to make a buck. :dunno:

Yup. And the same dolts who scream GOUGING doesn't have a problem paying $6.00 for a bottle of water at the airport or $7.00 for a bag of pop corn at the movies.


Common sense isn't common anymore.

I bet he trying to stay quiet so he dont ruin his shops rep.It's kinda buried, but at the very bottom of the gun's description is the dealer's web address- "thegunden.vpweb.com". The dealer is The Gun Den. According to Google they're at 4120 South Norfolk Avenue, Tulsa, OK 74105.

Their website is pretty much a complete mess, and I don't even see the Ruger listed on it (though I might just be overlooking it).

You can get em on GB for $1499.99... Just have to wait for it to ship in from Zimbabwe... Just busting your balls...

You did not. They produced a product that you and many others (possibly myself) were willing to pay for. If it was 3 grand, Brown would have trouble selling it.

I think he's just funning around. Maybe, I'm taking this too serious.

ETA: Yep, I am.

Well, there is that dude from Zimbabwe that says that I can have most of his $21m for helping him transfer it to the States. He promises to transfer it to my account. All I need to do is give him my name, address, social, bank account and routing number. :supergrin:

I saw that ad too and figured someone was just trying to make a 'few' bucks on a gun in short supply; someone will probably think it's a steal

And I thought I overpaid at $619...in Tulsa no less.
