Auction Alert: Good news for buyers, bad for the seller…

Live within driving distance of Washington, Missouri? Then you may be able to get a deal on a double barrel shotgun or even a rifle. M. R. Clark Auction is having a firearms auction this Saturday, 5/14, starting at 9am.

It looks there are some nice side by sides there, including: Rizzini 410 O/U shotgun-straight grip-high, Merkel Double rifle Model 141.1 with Leupold 2×7 Varix II 9.3x74R, an A. Francotte-Belgium 20ga SxS-double, a Helice SxS Double Trigger 12ga, and a JJ Sarasqueta-eibar SxS Double Trigger 12ga.

The seller doesn’t have a lot of info about the guns online, and other than the images already on the site, there are no additional pics.

Now, the good news for buyers is that you have to be present at the auction to bid on the guns. In my experience, this can drive down realized price quite a bit.

That’s great news if you can get there. And bad news if you’re the person who owns the guns.
