I am not sure if the link will work you may need to cut and paste.

When I see over priced stuff most of the time I just move on.

Someone is asking $450 for a Rohm .38spl.

I think it's worth maybe $100.

That seems to be the way of a lot of things today.
I have seen several 800 plus dollar Glocks. They all seem to be 19's though.

:rofl::rofl:


I am thinking even before the current situation, 94 rounds of .38 special probably was worth more than a Rohm...

Color me dumb, but I never heard of a Rohm. Why not buy a Smith&Wesson. You can get a really nice one for $450, depending on what model you want. For example, I have a J-frame on consignment at the lgs. It's a 36-1, so it has a square butt and a 3" barrel. I told the lgs owner I wanted $325. He's got it listed at $425 (guy's gotta make a profit, right?) and he thinks it'll sell at that price. I said but you've new ones for not much more, and he said yeah, but the older ones are better made and revolver guys know that. My 36-1 was manufactured in 1981.

My recommendation: Pass on the Rohm.

Armslist is full of those type ads.People selling their junk that they could not give away before all this mess,suddenly is transformed into something really special.

Sad thing is, someone out there will pay his price and think they got a bargain.

I thought your 100.00 was overly generous. SJ 40

I would advise people to just hold off on any buying until this whole joke blows over. Then there will be some good used deals to be had. If people are willing to pay these laughable prices then it will take the market that much longer to self adjust. Myself I'm just worried about primers, worse comes to worse I can always make my own bullets but primers are a little tougher.
