I am tempted!!!!!

Probably the most popular caliber firearm in most of the world. Many of us have more than one. They also are very collectible and still cheap to shoot.

Go for it, Duncan, I wouldn’t hesitate for that money in Australia.

If you are thinking about it, probably someone else is too. On the other hand, "act in haste, repent at leisure". With old cameras I've repented at leisure about thirty percent of the time and rejoiced at my great fine with quick action thirty percent of time and was ok with the deal thirty percent of the time. You can pay your money and take your chances or you can sit down until the notion moves on. Decisions, decisions, decisions. :roll:

It still has almost 6 days for the auction to go, what do you think it will hit by the end?
Is there a "Buy it now" price or bids only? I read in the paper that the Euro and the dollar are
now worth the same, not sure if that is good or bad....... :cool:
Good luck on the auction, Duncan.

I paid 320€ for my current MkI in 2016
Because this is a 1€ to start with no reserve there is no Buy Now option. :shock:
