Looks like the price was $12k.

I sat there and watched the clock run out on it,,, the GunSpot auctions don't extend time either when there is a last minute bid, AND the bid increment is 1$.
Thought about it a lot, but it just doesn't fit in with what I collect, and I have learned my lesson about buying just because the price was right., I have to want it too.
Usually right after I buy a "good deal" something that I was really seeking comes along and I don't have the funds.
MWT has been trying to move that M37 since Feb, had a buyer back out and it was available again in May.
I had received decent pictures of it that MWT had sent.
They were asking about $16K.
I believe it was a Craig Jordan build (Tiffany Arms).
The MG market is hard to follow right now, seems like smaller easier to use guns are where the $$$ go.

Perfect way to sum up exactly my thoughts! I used to do those kinds of purchases all the time...and with this amount of money I thought the same...definitely a good deal provided that whoever won it wasn't willing to go higher at the last minute...but it just wasn't exactly what I was looking for. I know a lot of parts between 1917's and 1919's can be interchanged but Id much prefer an air cooled BMG in .30 cal. Idk if its a big deal or not to simply swap the barrel and internals on that setup or what all is involved with the water jacket so I pretty much took the same approach you did. For the amount of money these things cost I'm definitely not in a hurry to throw cash at something just because its a good deal even if its minor details. If its a matter of just unbolting or unscrewing a few parts and swapping them out, well then eff me I missed out haha.

I hope thats the case everywhere with smaller easy to use guns, Ive seen several 1919's for sale on the big dealer websites for the last year or so and I have to laugh that they're all sold now that Im ready to buy. Ive learned to be patient when dealing with MG's, ya really dont have too much of a choice haha. I will wait for the right deal for me.

Did anyone on this forum just win that Tiffany Arms built Colt 1928 (Group Ind. RHSP) that just closed at auction on GunSpot?
It seemed like a really good deal.

Richard
Wow, I would have expected it to go much higher. Somebody snagged a deal
