    Whats up with T3 sellers on trademe?

    Question:Whats up with T3 sellers on trademe?

    Seriously, you can buy a brand new one for $1250, yet most secondhand T3 sellers are asking a lot more than this for a secondhand one?

    Do T3's gain in value the more thrashed they become? Seams to be a trend that only T3's exhibit.

    Anyone else noticed this?

    People think some crappy scope and the fact it came with some form of suppressor adds value...

    Who has them for $1250 as I struggled to find any at that price after ringing about 10 retail stores including Gun city. They list them on trade me then you go through and sorry all the old model is out of stock so $1499.

    It's not the sellers, I say good luck to them. It's the stupid buyers who don't do research and are prepared to pay the rates on TM. And it not just T3s that dickheads pay over the top prices for.

    most people think that theres is worth more than a new one coz they have done work to it mostly weight loss like tikkas a real heavy or something
    like my old school hunter mate says if you don't want to carry a rifle give up hunting
    is rifle is an old sako wood stocked thing and isn't light but he says carrying of your gun is part of hunting and

    a t3 will do moa out of the box as advertised ive witnessed it lots
    the cheap alloy rings are good enough to do the job
    a decent optic is all you need
    why people spend heaps is beyond me

    My T3 22-250 has shot several thousand rabbits now. It's so well trained that it just about shoots them all by its self. It's worth at least twice as much as a new one. I think it's a bit like buying a good gun dog - you will pay more for a fully trained two year old than a 12 week old pup. Anyone interested in a bare T3 for $3k? I'll cover the postage
