Nice scores OP.

Deals exist. Especially when a collector with great pieces croaks and the family doesn't know what they are worth in today's market.

Lesson learned. Keep an updated list of values for the important pieces in a safe place with instructions on how to get the most for it. That's if you want the value of your collection to stay in your estate. If you want to hook up the next gun collector with estate sale prices...just leave the price tag on it.

Good score. I never understood people who say that gun shows are joke and total crap. Granted, they can be 95% of the time. You might get tables full of IO inc crap for 900 a piece etc. But once in a while you stumble to a good deal. Usually it's someone carrying a firearm around without knowing what they have.

I found my holy grail around 3 yrs ago from a gun show. Made my deal of the lifetime, I don't care if I never find any good deals anymore. A guy was carrying a Valmet M62S, I didn't have enough money with me, I asked his phone number being sure that someone buys that Valmet in that gun show. Long story short, I scraped the money from couple of my credit cards, met the guy next day and bought almost new condition(he said one mag through it, I believed that when I got it apart) Valmet for $1600. I don't bother playing lotto anymore...

WinterWar is right,

One of the worst shows I ever went to scored me a aes10b w/ Romie drum mag for $675. At another "ok" show a contact which resulted in an all matching k43 w/ 2 mags, matching '39 Luger w/ excellent holster, & beautiful s&w 1917 in original condition, and a p38 mag, all matching C96 Red 9 with period stock & leather rig, $5800 when I finally picked all of it up... Given the collection, a g-vg price, worth every dime, like this scenario!

All because of gun shows.... They do have a purpose...

Great score dude, outstanding way to start a Belgian collection of this variety. Whether you intended to our not...!

Would love to see pics of the other family members...!

Last 2 years, I've stumbled across a preban fixed spiker for $850, a Springfield Armory SAR-3/8 overstamp for $850, an SGL21 for $850 ($850 seems to be a magic number, for some reason). I've scored cheap Chinese drums and many other mags. Last show I bought a CAI built L1A1 with 3 mags and a DSA scope mount/brass catcher for $550. Bought it for the scope mount, cleaned the rifle up, pulled the scope mount and put an $18 top cover on it, and sold it for $850 on armslist. Looking forward to (and saving money for) the next big show in November.
