    Just wondering why people come here to advertise their Ebay garbage? Everybody knows where ebay is so why tell us about it. You people should put ebay in the subject so we dont waste our time opening it!! If I wanted to pay for the over priced junk on ebay I would be there now instead of here.

    PLEASE LABEL YOUR EBAY GARBAGE!!

    I agree, only because a lot of the gun stuff advertised as AA grade is crap. The dude selling the model 12 parts stuck me with a Super X stock that had been sanded and recheckered terribly, and wouldn't refund the money or answer emails for a week.
    Listed it a "AA Fancy", and it had been refinished pourly as well. Then he bitched cause I gave him a poor rating.

    You misunderstand or I was not clear. It was last year, and he advertised a Fancy Super x-1 stock and forearm with pics. I believe he called it "perfect". Sent him a check. The stock had been sanded at the grip and recheckered (off the lines) and had been refinished. Barely 1/16" material left at the bolt hole. Looked like crap, and will probably crack with use. He did not return emails for 7 days, so I gave him a bad rating. Then, and only then did he respond, and would not send the money back. He would not take paypal, my fault. Buyer beware, protect your self.

    STUD! I changed it for you! You must be one of the people posting your garbage under your other name. HUH? The least you can do is put "EBAY ITEM" in your post so we dont waste our time. I've bought and sold things from people on this site without any problems (no ebay)

    All should list here first if something for sale. Post a pic, description, and your price. f it does not sell after a week or so. Post it on ebay or any other for sale web site. I sell a few things here and there on ebay, its fast easy and for me simple to use. I post any shooting related items I have for sale here on TS first. Then Ebay. So far all I have had is Once fired shells.

    The correct term to put in the subject line is "WTA" (Want To Auction), similar to WTB (Want to Buy), WTS (Want To Sell) or WTT (Want To Trade).

    EBay is garbage. I won't do business with them. Its full of amateur playing at business. Furthermore they are anti gun. They will not allow any gun parts to be listed on their service so the eBay clowns are coming to this board to "play" at business. I call Ebayer's "E Barnum" from PT Barnum who said a "fool and his money is soon parted" Be careful.... you will get ripped by these people.

    TB

    p.s. had a similar stock deal. Guy listed it as a Perazzi DB81 stock when it was actually a Sporter stock. Would not take it back unless i gave him a 'glowing" comment on their feed back form. Sold the stock on Guns America and told the truth on the Ebay form.

    The worst part is Ebay does not care. Ebay gets their money and they don't care if its members get ripped off. Your on your own. One day the Gov will make Ebay clean up its act. They are in fact are a den of thieves. One wayto protect yourselves is to have the item mailed or shipped through the PO.The PO willgoafter them if you feel you have been ripped off. Don't even look at Ebay for help. They will just laugh at you and tell you to go buy something else.

    No doubt some items on this web as well as others, Gunbrokers, Auction Arms, etc. are not being represented as they are.

    I personally have had very good luck buying as well as selling on EBAY, but I am an ethics person. I describe everything as it is, good, bad or otherwise.
    Some do not. Beware

    This is probably the most pointless thread I've read here in a long time. It's a clear indication of cabin fever.

    You guys need an "Awwwwww" moment...click on the link above ^

    I have been a e-bay buyer for several years with relative satisfaction. I pay by pay pal and have gotten prompt reimbursement the couple of times I have had to use them. No worries so far.

    Dave P....

    Based upon my experience with EBay your day of reckoning is not far off. Only a fool uses EBay...
