I just bought a brand new 45 cal stainless steel green mountain barrel ( 1:28) for my T/C hawken. I got it brand new from green Mountain 3 weeks ago for $110.00. or the regular barrel was $95.00. That must be a special 45 cal . to bring that price

Could be what I see on ebay quite often, people either don't really check things out before bidding or get caught up in the bidding and end up paying way more than they should. I use the basic rule that if I can't get it for a deal (like 50 to 60% of local pricing) then I wait for the next one to come along, eventually I will get what I want at a price I'm willing to pay. If I need it right now I buy itlocally. I also check out all the online discount stores to see what it's really worth before bidding.

They are going nuts on Ebay. I've been looking for a T/C Hawken stock but the prices are too high. I saw one with all the hardware going for over $400 - insane.

Best thing to do is just wait until under a minute is left then bid. Often times you seem to pay more if you bid earlier on. If you bid at the last minute people don't have time to bid against you.

that is where a problem comes in. I have dial up plus, when it ends I will be on my way home from work. I lose I lose. found a brand new never used stock in white. whole lot more. but I will be able to say my first brand new muzzy.

I have only one auction on there. mainly buy out of 2 guys stores

To get in on last second bidding without having to be there you could set up an account with these people,
http://www.auctionsniper.com/
I've used it a few times and it seems to work.

I still prefer to do it in person and never bid more than a few seconds before the bidding is over, been burned before and don't want to go through that again. Just bid the most you are willing to pay and either you win or you don't. I did that on a wheel flint last week and won with 2 or 3 seconds left. Got it in the mail today. Now I need to try it out before posting a report on it.
