Worst Deal Camp Perry 2016

So we swung by the Springfield shop during the 2016 National Matches at Camp Perry. And just like 2015, the super-crazy priced HK91 / G3 Magazines were still sitting there. You will note, we reported on these last year. Makes you wonder if they are really interested in selling them or just stock them as wall hangers?

Steel mags on the left. Aluminum on the right. Dumb prices.

What I did see that was interesting were some cut G3 select-fire lowers. Perfect for your 100% correctly marked semi-auto pr post 86 build.

And finally, there were seats available in the leather chairs! Unless you have been to Camp Perry, you might not understand just how rare this picture is. Promptly, our senior “mi amigo” plopped down and started eating a fresh bag of popcorn. A Camp Perry favorite.

    That first picture reminded of the bags of disassembled guns they used to hand us at SFQA and tell us we had a finite amount of time to assemble them all and prove they worked. They seldom told us how much time we actually had, just that it was limited. 😉

    I rarely even go to gun shows anymore. Everything there is priced beyond reason. I may go to look at something I already know I want and have priced in other places, but just want to pick up and hold for myself before ordering.

    • I went to my first gun-show after a 15-20 year hiatus just this past winter. I’m good for another 20 at least. This was at Camp Perry.

    Are they not the same mags that sell for 2 bucs a pop at most places? Wow…

    Ya gotta wonder if they EVER sold any of those magazines?

    • I suspect they just have them as filler.

        I just ordered 30 aluminum G3 mags, grade 2 or better, for less than 3 bucks plus shipping from Cheaper than Dirt. I guess I’ll see how good their grading system is. Clearview Investments has grade 1, like new to excellent condition for 5 bucks plus shipping.
