    Talking It's Hard To Believe

    Hard to believe that the EMPTY cardboard Galil Rifle Box on Ebay now has a High Bid of $66.00 (That Would Be Sixty Six) as in (66 American Dollars) for an Empty Galil Rifle Box. The box is in fairly poor condition. And....the auction is not over yet.

    QK - if a roll of toilet paper had Colt printed on each sheet - it'd make a fortune

    Maybe if I sell a gun I should sell it ''sans box'' and sell that separately!

    I'm not absolutely sure, you'd have to buy one to figure out. This may be the way some bypass eBay's anti-gun laws. <p>It's kind of like selling an envelope (legal to sell on ebay) and the lucky winner gets free knicks tickets (not legal to sell on ebay) <p>Then again, I guess I could sell my empty gun boxes and become a rich man.

    Nope...It's The Actual Value Of The Box

    The Galil box...add $10.00 for Shipping the empty box too!

    My Galil was an early one & it came N.I.B. from Magnum Research & Damn if I didn't toss my cardboard box away.
    I had moved it twice & then just chucked it.



    I've seen empty Colt boxes going for upwards of $25.00 on Ebay.

    So if you had a Galil you where trying to sell that was in good shape, would it be worth more than $76 more if you could say "in original box"?

    I bet so ... I bet it would sell for at least $100 more than it would otherwise.

    Bruces45, would you consider printer paper? I'll get right on it after I get this ##%%@$ toilet paper unstuck from my printer.
    Oh yeh? Well this was sent from the scary black electrical box under my desk, so there!

    People who put STUPID music in their web sites deserve to spend eternity in that special kind of hell ... the one reserved for child molesters and people who talk in the theater.
