"One man's sell-off is another man's bargain purchase."
May be true in the early days of the intro of the new item. But as time rolls on and people start realizing that they can get more, those prices will likely rise, not fall. Why would people want to sell something for less than others are getting, after all?
Anyone with a bit of sense will troll around to see what others are selling their item for before they offer it for sale themselves, right? Doing that tends to drive prices upward (again unless there is suddenly a glut of them on the market).
Anyway, if I had the $$ I'd get a rifle I don't have to defarb. If a new Enfield is upward toward the $900 mark already and you have to put in hard labor or a couple hundred bucks to defarb it (or both) I think I'd rather get one already "right" from the manufacturer.
But I sure as heck won't want to sell my defarbed one too cheap to replace it with the Pedersoli, that's for sure. It'd be sort of foolish to do so, wouldn't it?
