Is $6,000 a little too high ?? :w00t:

 

 

 

OMG, I was smiling after it went to $2,000 then $3,000 etc. after the final bid, everyone was stunned, then someone started to applaud as the rest of the audience joined in.

Wow! The price of Liberators keeps going up and up!

 

Carey, I have a couple of questions:

 

Was the Victory in .38 Special, or .38 S&W? It just says .38 caliber on the tag.

 

Do you remember how much these two guns went for?

 

- Japanese Nambu Type 94 pistol

 

- Webley Mark VI with the rare Pritchard bayonet

 

Thanks!

What was so "special" about a Victory revolver that was not .38 SPL and "US NAVY" marked that someone paid that price? I would not have paid $600 for the revolver unless it was .38 SPL and "US NAVY" marked.

 

Just my opinion.

Tim,

 

What's so special is that the revolver is "unissued, with range target and examination tags." That's worth a premium to a S&W collector.

Tim, Good Question, I was wondering the "same thing" about value. I guess that's why he took it to auction and had it advertised like crazy.

 

GB, Thanks for the "explanation" on revolver.

 

had a 1941 dated P-38 in holster sell for $2,200, Now thats "crazy"

Seems as though the S&W VICTORY and the COLT COMMANDO are coming on strong with collectors. With the fever that has caused 1911A1's to go through the roof, folks are turning to more affordable pieces, hence, prices for them tend to go up as well.
