Turners in Canoga.

All crappy black wanna-be-sofa-born-airborne rifles, and there at the end of the rack - one piece of wood, a Garand (probably Frankenstein) $800 though.

The mag dumpers don't understand the power of the ping.

Do advanced collectors buy collectible firearms from Imbert & Smithers? My experience in the past 18+ years of going there tells me no, at least I never have. Every collectible I’ve looked at there has been overpriced by 30-50% and they won’t deal...

Admittedly, I’m not a regular customer, although I’ve bought several non-collectible firearms from them over the years, they don’t know me so maybe that’s why they’ve never seemed interested in working with me on a collectible firearm sale.

You can find the occasional deal, mostly on foreign rifles in my experience. Picked up a matching antique Italian Carcano M91 rifle there for less than $200 last year.

Like most places, most American or other well known firearms are usually a bit expensive.

Well as "Jonnie Popper" Garand WOULD be priceless!

Was at a major LGS here in ABQ, NM today, they had one HRA
Garand left, looked all correct and original, price $1800!

They usually sell refurbished M1 Carbines in the $900 range

And today they have a 1903 ramrod bayonet type rifle, price....$9995!
