Frenchman:

Well, with all due respect, it just sold for the asking price and the happy buyer drove 6 1/2 hours to pick it up. It was posted on Facebook Marketplace for less than 24 hours.

Cheers

I wondered about the price initally, as the Marketplace post I read made no mention of the reproduction weapon. Then it dawned on me that it was probably not mentioned on purpose, given FB's policy on firearms and parts. Reading between the lines, and seeing the price, I presumed the package deal included the weapon too?? :D :?: :D Glad buyer and seller are HAPPY!!

Thanks. The most important part to the buyer was the high quality Browning M1917A1 reproduction. Every time I tried to list it on FB it was kicked out. Even though there is no way it could be made operational.
