    I was looking at a gun sales site and came across one seller having several like new guns for sale at way below market prices. I really wonder what to think about this seller. The old saying if it sounds to good to be true then it probably isn't. I think either this seller is a total idiot or he has some other reason for this ad. I think it is the latter and at any rate it appears it almost has to be bogus.
    What is your thoughts about these prices?
    Sig P226 LNIB $350- IMO should be around $600
    FN-57 LNIB $500- IMO $700 more like its real minimum value
    Beretta 92fs LNIB-$200 This is totally unreal price
    Glock 17 LNIB $380 , Glock 22 only 20 rounds through it $415

    That seller may be attaching a different meaning to LNIB. Darned if I can think of one though; Large Nick In Barrel doesn't make much sense.

    This guy has some kind of scam working.

    Could be he needs money fast. Either way I'd need to see them in person.

    I also think it is a scam of some sort. 92FS for 200 or even Sig P226 for 350 is a give away IMO.

    There are scams everywhere. A friend called me yesterday, all excited, about a truck for sale. 1999 Ford F250/powerstroke 4WD for $1500. Obviously, I told him to look out- the shoe is getting ready to drop. A bad engine, toasted transmission, something- at the time, a scam didn't enter my mind. Then, he emailed me the ad. It was clearly a scam, and a quick internet search on the name/email address showed that this ad has been used all over the US.
    Anytime the price is stellar, I'm skeptical. I might be wrong, but chances are that it's bogus.
