Do you think the milsurp market will ever cool off or reverse?

Do you think the milsurp market will ever cool off or reverse?

Boomers have been buying up guns and hoarding them, but will there be enough replenishment in demand from the new generations or will zoomers (who are less acquisitive and materialistic, and don't worship the military or historical conflicts) pass on creaming over these trinkets?

      It's not unprecedented. Old guitars used to go for tens of thousands and that market collapsed by 80-90% after the great recession. The cultural worship of rock bands stopped, and the 1959 that a doctor paid 30k for would go for 5.

    The surplus of the future will be second-hand PSA AR15's circulating around not milsurp. The US military doesn't keep surplus anymore they give it away to shithole countries to start civil wars for their benefit.

      Yep. AR15s are the new Mosins. Get them cheap while you can.

        hate to admit it but there is some truth to this. one day we’ll all look back and wished we kept that “shitty” AR. most boomers probably thought the same of their old bolt guns back in the day as we do todays AR’s

      This is a crime against the American people
      The CMP should be selling military surplus to us, there is literally no reason it should only be WWII weapons

    Do you know how this word "surplus" works?

      Just because supply is fixed doesn't mean demand can't decrease. The latest generation of younglings isn't gun crazed

          Yes which means demand is peaking.

    Fuck no. Better get a nugget at that deal of a price.
    In all actuality, the Boomers have absolutely fucked the gun/milsurp market beyond repair (similarly to how they fucked the housing market). Only difference is, junior isn't going to sell grampa's house to the cops for pennies on the dollar.

    >No bids

    Just another scammer hoping to catch a sucker. Come back to me when they actually start getting bids on plain old Russian mosins's for that price.

    It already has. I'm seeing mosins drop back into the 300s. There was a while during COVID where every mosin was 500 minimum

      Sort of on topic: gunbroker's search is terrible. You can get lucky sometimes and find steals simply because they got buried in a different classification and behind all the featured auctions.

      this. my predictions are turning out exactly how i imagined, i told you guys in 2020 that give it a couple years and the market will collapse as boomers die off and begin liquidating collections for estates or to keep up with living expenses from inflation. inflation is so bad now that not even social security checks cna keep up and its about to double. boomers will be liquidating their hoards before summer of next year and mosins will be back to $150

    No. The final boomer, who will have accumulated the stash of all other boomers amounting to 80+% of all civilian weapons in the US will have a stroke, and in his dying breath his retarded wife will mistake his will and send them all to local PD to be destroyed in what will become the world's largest buyback ever recorded. Said wife will then be arrested after ATF agents realize she has some shitty arts and crafts project that vaguely resembles an AR autosear, during which at least a dozen dogs entirely unrelated will be shot dead by wandering ATF agents.

      Unless North Korea somehow decides to dump all their stuff on the market for whatever reason, its all pretty much done by now anon. The only other way would be if estate sales drop prices like a rock since to non gun people its all just a bunch of old wooden bolt actions, but given what happened to the used car market and what the internet is like now I doubt that’ll happen. The rest of the surp is still soaked in cosmoline sitting in a box in some third world warehouse or used actively or passively by said third world country. Shits getting hot globally, so every weapon counts.

    The growing militarization across the world makes this impossible. People will only be buying more and more weapons in the coming decade and that will dominate all other trends

    Collecting (over all mediums and media) went bonkers over the China cough lockdowns.looks like some of the markets are starting to normalize but themilsurp market will probably be pretty stable because of the supply situation and the barrier to sell firearms.
    General Financial pressure and boomer die off might soften the market but probably less than people would hope

    Sometimes I consider selling my Mosin for what I bought it for ($100) just to be the change the milsurp market needs

      it will be immediately purchased for $100 and promptly put up for sale for $2900
      You're just feeding the problem at that point, just sell it for $2200

    My dad's in his 70's and has a couple dozen rifles. They range from 60's hunting rifles and shotguns, to modern, to literal antiques. At this point I have what I need, and told him to sell the valuable stuff now, and hold back whatever my son wants. Some of the 60's stuff is worth several thousand dollars apparently.
    My father in law has probably over 50 firearms. His kids have zero interest in guns and they'll probably all go to auction.
    I feel the day's coming when there's going to be way more of these floating around than there are buyers.

    No man, I got a tula hex bolt mosin for $200 back in 2017 and thought I was getting ripped off, same gun same.condigion matching SN goes for at least 2x now. Look at gold and silver and cars and everything over the last ten years, this isn't a boom bust thing it's a secular downturn in the market across all asset classes and it'll last at least a decade if not 5.

    I remember going to gunshows and seeing barrels of Mosins selling for $50 each. I tried to buy one once but my call-in background check was delayed and I didn't feel like making the arrangements necessary to get it later so I told the guy "nevermind."
