So, I'm looking at this auction, wrapping head around it, so on and so forth, and then I notice this:

RIFLE IS SOLD AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. I WILL HAVE OTHERS AVAILABLE SOON. THANKS SAM

I thought that once you have bids, and the auction is basically a sale/over the reserve, or whatever, that a seller can't sell the rifle/whatever is in the auction, locally; or wherever.

Am I wrong?

Auction:

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=283675428

Perhaps I don't understand how things work?

    You're right and he's going to have a problem with the high bidder and Gunbroker when the auction ends.

    I'm thinking that the high bidder might want some sort satisfaction, after the auction ends. This would suck, as that's a very nice parts kit, on that American made receiver.

    Personally, I'm looking for a few M70 parts. But, I've found it to be hard to find what I'm looking for, and, I'm starting to expand the scope of what I'm willing to purchase.

    @Spider, thank you! [:)]

    Well, because I pay Nunn a lot of money not to poof my posts.

    Nunn, check's in the mail. [:D]

    On a serious note, I don't need support, I'm not suggesting any changes to GB, I'm just asking a question. The guys here know this stuff really well, and I trust them. Well, I kind of trust them. [:p]
