Re: Got another CZ pistol

Awesome deal and nice CZ.
Gotta love those friends, coworkers, and family members who just don't want those "old guns" around anymore and offer a screaming deal. :D

Re: Brazilian 1908 non matching Long rifle.

... what do you look at to gauge the interest???.. There is no body language to read, just numbers on a screen.. If you're using the Proxibid app that shows the live auction items and bids then you're seeing the auction progress in real-time. Be aware that some auctions even offer live audio and so...

Re: Brazilian 1908 non matching Long rifle.

@ indy1919a4 - I'm under the impression that each auction house sets its own percentages? I also imagine that additional % fees may vary with the type of services that the online providers (e.g. Proxibid) offer to the auction house for that event. Honestly, I often don't even pay attention to what s...

Re: Brazilian 1908 non matching Long rifle.

Re: Brazilian 1908 non matching Long rifle.

Personally I think you did fine. The metal and wood look to be pretty decent - too bad about the pitting, but from what you show, certainly doesn't seem like anything to be concerned about.

"Tumbleweeds" are a brand name. They are shavings from a wood and coiled together.

Re: RTFI!

I used to see a lot of them around here growing up - they sprouted up almost anywhere (like any other weed) - no so much anymore, perhaps due to urban sprawl? It was fun to light a few on fire and watch them burn - they go up in flame very quickly.
