    I hate to think I might be inviting competition but if you're in Austin there is a large auction at Austin Auctions the first weekend in December with lots and lots (60+) C&R-type firearms from rifles to handguns to shotguns. Google them, browse their catalog... and if you're going, PM me and I'll say hello on Saturday.

    Note - if you have an 01/03 FFL, bring a signed copy (and perhaps your original) - they do require FFL transfer to receive firearms for this auction, apparently the seller or owner of the collection is somehow requiring this (it has NOT been a requirement in past auctions of other sellers).

    I'm not an employee or seller - just another bidder you'd compete with - but I've bought here before and been very happy (not firearms, just furniture, etc.).

    They do allow online bids but I'm hesitant to do it... have to look at stuff first to see the actual condition because I trust these listings less than sellers elsewhere because there's no guarantee they actually know guns.

    I should also note the last auction I went to here the Discovery Channel was filming and some of the auction TV stars were there and bidding which may increase the price of some bids/items, etc. Not sure about this one.

    From what I can see they are pretty much spot on in their estimates. At least for what you might find it for online or at a shop. Some of their estimates are pretty good. I am really curious what some things end up going for. I have a feeling something will come home with me. Ha.

    Some things they haven't estimated, but I don't blame them. http://austinauction.hibid.com/cata...ATROOPER+CARBINE&selCat=0&submit=Refresh+List This for example could end up going for a lot. I saw one sell for over $4000 not that long ago.

    I've seen their estimates be really low most of the time. It's a pretty large auction so there's often a lot of action on the prized items and firearms definitely get action, no pun intended.
