The auction has been ended. The seller was a New Register (NR) on Gunbroker.com. My guess is someone got ahold of the seller, gave them a song and a dance over the phone and got this rifle way below market value. The rare & hard to find Remington Police Model 8's & 81's and the F.B.I. Model 81's always sell for the well deserving big money...when the seller lets the auction run its coarse. Plus on Gunbroker.com, the buyer doesn't have to pay a 15%-18% buyer's premium like some of the other auction house sites. If this is the case, its too bad for the seller! It was a nice looking, numbers matching rifle that would have brought big money on GB. Enjoy Life, Bob @ S and S HUNTCLUB

Oh I hope you're not right S&S. I had phone conversations with the owner going back several weeks. I actually talked to him yesterday and recommended he change the title, description, and the photographs to elicit more interest. He had mentioned a friend was posting it on gunbroker for him. Not sure what happened. He knew what the fair market value was for the gun so hopefully...

Cam, I hope I'm not correct. I would like to see the rifle relisted & the auction run its coarse on GB, just to see the real market value. Let's hope that isn't the case. It was a good looking rifle and it would have brought some big money...considering folks are spending $2,600.00+ on standard Model 81's today.
