    I'll bet you won't see CNN/Fortune run a piece about collectible AR15s.

    Absence of Parker is a major oversight.

    That is either an old article or a rehash of an old article. The author didn't even do any research. He took the guns and their selling prices directly from the Griffin and Howe internet used gun list. It couldn't have taken more than ten minutes for him to put it together. Shame on Fortune for giving him the credit for being a "Fortune contributor".

    I would ditch the Cosmi.

    Move the Boss to the top

    Add a Holland and Holland at number 3

    Replace the CSMC with an original Model 21 Grand American.

    Alpha, he didn't have the option of using an original Grand American because in the ten minutes he allocated to researching the article, those were the ten highest priced guns on the Griffin and Howe used gun website. A Grand American was not on the tube. He didn't even wait until the next morning to see what appeared. He used the ten guns that were there while he was sitting at his computer. It is a miserable article, no reasearch, no time spent, no nothing. Again, shame on Fortune magazine for hiring him.
