Holy Hand Grenade!  I was really off on this one.

11.5Gs  The chaffee Reese would have been a real deal.

Thanks guys!

Yes, I believe the buyer did get a good deal.  If I can make more than double my purchase price in profit and the buyer still feels like they got a good deal, that sounds great to me.

This keeps everyone out there on the hunt and energized to share in our hobby!

Now to go find more guns to spend some of the profit on  ;D

Glad you are happy. I'm just sorry to see such a great (even if obscure) rarity in US military arms going so cheap. Wouldn't let mine go for anywhere near that - it is one of my core "keepers".
