Anyone get anything from the latest AAA auction (Sept 2023)?

Despite actually having a useful amount of money available, most of the stuff I was bidding on ended up going for stupid prices, or I could tell the other person I was bidding against had deep pockets and long arms, and that was a game of financial chicken I’m not in a position to play.

A few bargains in there though, especially among the “modern” guns though.

As always there were also some head-scratchers; a Lebel M1886 went for $6,500(!) and an S&W Victory model revolver going for $1600 being among them…

Wow that Lebel price is crazy, I dont see alot of them around but it still seems like a lot. It was probably the only thing I was realistically interested in but not for that much.

That was my thought too - Lebel rifles aren’t common here but they’re not $6500 rare either.

There was also a Lebel M1892 Revolver in there too which I was interested in if the price was right, but not for the $1900 it went for.
