Default Classic Firearms has gone completely mad

They are selling Yugo 24/47 Mausers for the low price of $699.99 tomorrow. But they are "highly collectible low serial numbered!"

https://www.classicfirearms.com/vide...ish-m39-rifles

Hurry! They will go fast!!

And they will likely sell out out at that price. Catering to the lazy and ignorant. More power to them I guess.

To be fair they appear to be new.
One of them has serial number 0. One was #3.
Don't really know much about mausers but that would seem to be fairly unique. A brand new serial #0 surplus mauser?

I walked into my local pawn shop and they wanted I think 800 for an m48... must have price checked classic. I did my part of telling them it's a 300 big 5 rifle

Good God. They have gone full retard.
That being said, as a business owner, I hope they sell out. There is nothing better than selling cheap goods for ridiculous prices to people with too much money LOL.

I don't know how the Yugos serialed their rifles, but if they did the same method as the Germans, using serial number blocks, you could have multiple 0's in the same year.

Their price would be more in line if those were original M24s, not 24/47s.

What Bob says - when they have the last stash, they are worth whatever someone is willing to pay.

I got my "unissued" M48 for $149, and back then that seemed like a lot of money for an old gun! Nowadays I'm sure I'd jump on them for double that. I kick myself for thinking those unissued Savage Enfields were too expensive at $199... I'd probably throw $500 at one of those today, in a few years maybe it could get me to shell out $800.

Is it price gouging? Yes, but only from today's perspective, next year might be a whole different world.

At 3:29, do I see eagle/77 on the extractor ring? If so, the ring must be off a WW2 Erma/Radom/Steyr? Why would a German WW2 part end up on an "unissued" pre-war rifle?

Am I the only one bothered by the fat guy dry firing every rifle?

Number "0" for $799.99...

M48's and 24/47's are good rifles and I have both. They are also exceedingly common and require great condition and matching numbers to even approach $400. This batch of rifles we are discussing here are marketed toward people who are going to see them for the first time on the obnoxious video and fumble in a mad rush for their credit cards at this "once in a lifetime" opportunity.

Sounds about right.

Amazing how easily some folks fall for a fat carnival barker. These M24/47 rifles are not new, they have been rebuilt with new barrels, scrubbed, renumbered, sanded and reblued. They are good rifles of high quality but they are not brand new, more along the lines of what Enfield labeled an "FTR" (minus the scrubbing part).

Sold out. Good grief. I watched a few of those videos over the last couple days and it's madness. There's a local shop 10 min down the road from me that has about 6 Yugo Mausers in at least VG condition for half the price. The prices they were asking for the couple M95' they had the other day was also nuts.

Now in all fairness, $349 for a VKT M39 isn't horrible - I have seen that kind of pricing locally and that's solid considering a Dragoon Era 91/30 has gone up in value considerably.

I will respectfully disagree. I only bought my first (of 20+ now owned) 8mm Mauser rifles about 3 years ago. I have consumed probably close to 1,000 rounds of surplus on shooting trips, and still have at least 5K rounds of good reliable surplus stashed away in ammo cans. Most is brass cased Yugo with a couple sealed spam cans of Romy 8mm and some loose Turk and Egyptian ammo. I sold off most of the Turk because it is abusively hot to shoot, and the Egyptian is occasionally prone to hangfires. All the Yugo stuff shoots great and the steel cased Romy is the best of the bunch.

This ammo isn't going to be found at Turners or Big 5, but it is widely available on secondary markets and auction sites.

I forgot to mention that, thanks. By name every "24/47" is a reworked / refurbed rifle. Designed in 1924, reworked in 1947. Hence the name!

Classic really struck gold with these videos showing the lot of rifles for sale. Throw in the used car sales tactics and they are selling out. Dennis from Empire Arms has been taking photos of all his rifles for sale for years and he charges fair prices.

But if you have something unique then there is always a chance someone likes that kind of thing. So if you REALLY like that type of rifle, couple hundred extra for something a bit fun. Overall the amount of money compared to guns in general is low.

classic has sunk back into their old full retard advertisement now it seems. They stopped with that for a a year or two when the current look of the site first launched. Now we're back to BS and fear mongering again. How many last shipment of M39s have there been? I guess they keep doing it becuase it works though.

Classic Firearms = The New Mitchells Mausers.

I don't blame them though, it is a business, not a charity and if there are enough suckers out there who will pay it, why not? What they are doing is charging an exorbitantly high price for something quality made that will never be made again. Happens every day, all over the world for millions of non-firearms, so why not? If people will pay it, then they are good business people.

I have to agree here. They are running a business, and the fact that those rifles sold out so quickly is proof that their price point it not too high for the market.

While I wouldn't be interested at that price, apparently there are enough people who are.

It bought one of the "shooter grades" from AIM over the summer for $220 and I ended up with a very nice all matching rifle. I would imagine the B grades are very nice.

~650 is a little low unless its shooter grade, I'd say $7-850. Matching bayonet and test target in cherry condition $1k isnt bad as much as I hate saying that.

Samco sold the unissued ones for about $700 back in 2012 or so.
