Hammer Prices, RIA & James Julia

For the folks who are interested, here are the final hammer prices (plus 15% buyers’ premiums) for the recent two auction I had videos from…

I was rather hoping to maybe have some long shot as that semiauto FAMAS, only to have my hopes thoroughly crushed with a nearly $22,000 final price. Jeez. I really hope that’s not the new normal for those rifles…and maybe I should have found one before I went and made a video about how cool they are!

There were some definite deals to be had at Julia this time around – had I realized what it would sell for, I might have put in a bid on that pre-WWI 1903 match/sniper rifle. It just oozed cool history, and whoever won it got a fantastic bargain, IMO.
