Crazy Kimber auction price on GB!

This is the craziest price I've seen for a Kimber on GB. Is there really collectors out there where a serial number would matter to this degree?

I'd offer him $1,150.00 for it. It's not worth more than that to me.

It would have been funny if it had been a different caliber. I wonder if KR 191110 is a 10mm.

I don't think Gunbroker is the right place to try and make a lot of money off of a serial number. Guy needs to contact a professional auction house that knows where to put it up for bid and can probably tell him who is stupid enou. . . er willing to pay top dollar for it. That's the kind of thing you show people and they go "Wow, that's cool." and then move on.

Seriously though, I doubt the hardcore 1911 collectors are looking on Gunbroker.

He's crazy $35,000.00 is never going to happen. If you want a deal on a Kimber $849.00 will buy you the same NIB gun with 2 additional magazines and a Kimber range bag with a different serial number.

And no bids yet.

I wrote to him and asked what the reserve was set at. Somehow I don't think I will get an answer.

No one is going to pay that.

FWIW, my Pro Carry is serial number 0045. I thought that was cool.

He is full of chit in more ways than one! Did anyone beside me enlarge the photo? I am old and can't see real well BUT the last digit looks like a 6 (SIX) to me and not a 5. Blows his sell all to hell. Someone else check it out!
