Mine came today as well. Since the "merger" if you will they have published an outstanding catalog, very expensive I bet....

I wouldn't have a clue as to cost but they are first class IMO.

This one and the last one were much easier to follow and understand. The first one that they sent out just after the merger was hard to follow, two pages of pistols, page of English guns, page of American shotguns, Class III gun or to. Now it's much easier to follow. but the buyers premium...well not sure about that !

For a 26% buyer’s premium, the catalog should be quite spectacular.

Mine arrived today in a "one day priority" mailer. $7.10 shipping postage!
After the last auction, catalogs were available for the taking, on a table in the front foyer of the auction house.

Why are buyer commissions rising, 20% seems high plus a 20% sellers premium that's a nice margin with little risk and no investment in inventory. I wonder if some of the soft prices at auction are result of high premiums turning off buyers? Are dealers and GB internet type auctions becoming more attractive in this environment?

Bingo!

And those soft prices have a profound effect on the entire gun buying and selling market no matter where these transactions are taking place... even in private sales.
