    Exclamation How to use the Commercial Auction/Sale "Gossip" Forum

    The Commercial Auction/Sale "Gossip" Forum, is an area for discussion about milsurp auctions and sales found on various COMMERCIAL on-line Internet sites. The purpose of this forum is to help our members to stay informed and be aware of auctions and sales that may contain pieces of great interest, but also give them a place to discuss and possibly avoid items of a questionable authenticity or unreasonable valuations. This forum is NOT a buying, selling or auction forum. Please DO NOT post private or commercial ads here.

    This forum is NOT to be used for discussion or comment about private sales, by individuals who may be advertising their firearms or accessories in our own Quartermaster Stores area, or on other bulletin boards, such as Canadian Gun Nutz (CGN), Canadian Gunslingers (CGS), or Gunboards. The focus should remain solely on Commercial "for profit" establishments.

    For discussions about private sales in our own Quartermaster Stores area, or on other bulletin boards, such as Canadian Gun Nutz (CGN), Canadian Gunslingers (CGS), or Gunboards, we do have a special private Appraisals and Mediation Forum, which is designed to provide value added services for our MILSURPS.COM Contributing Members ONLY. The purpose of this forum is to help our Contributing Members stay informed and be aware of private sales that may of interest, but also give them a place to gather and discuss valuations, authenticity and possibly avoid items of a questionable provenance.

    Having said that, although we are a site that operates by donations only (click here) and accept no advertising from dealers or distributors, we still ask that all our members maintain a professional and mature approach, to discussing or evaluating firearms that appear in these listings. Unprofessional or unsubstantiated subjective criticisms lacking objectivity, will summarily be deleted by the moderation staff.

    Finally, as with any auction or sale, when the item time expires or the piece gets sold, links to the sale or specific auction may become broken. So, be aware of this when you are checking out older auctions and sales. If you find a broken link, please report it to one of the moderators, so they can remove the post thereby maintaining the forum in a relatively current state.

    Some of the more common sites to check out are as follows:
    Auction Arms
    Guns America
    Augustus Fine Antiques
    Brocks U.S.
    Collectible Firearms
    Collectors Source
    Great War Militaria
    P&S Guns and Militaria
    Ron & Shirley Watson Antiques
    Simpson Ltd
    Stewarts's Military Antiques
    Surplus Firearms and Accessories
    Empire Arms
    MilArm Co. Ltd.
    Swissdagger's Fine Rifles
    Collectors Firearms
    International Military Antiques
    Trade Ex Canada Inc.
    Guns and More (Canadian Auction Site)
    Simpson Auctions Home Page
    Springfields Army Surplus Store & Mail Order
    R J Holloway Firearms (U.K.)
    The Collectors Guild

    These are only a few on-line sites and there are many more. If you'd like to see a favorite site added to this list, please send the site information to any of the MILSURPS.COM moderating staff.

    We hope you enjoy this addition to the Military Surplus Collectors Forums.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.
