In your opinion, what is the "most wanted" firearm is Australia's secondhand firearms market.

What I mean is, what is the firearm which sells the fastest when advertised on sites like usedguns?

In my view the prize goes to the Colt Python blued 6" barrel.

Look forward to your views.

Tikka 223's would have to be right up there I reckon.

When they started posting Model 1 Brno rimfire .22's for $1300 I decided they were the most sought after.

I chuckled when I immediately thought "The Adler Shotgun", most wanted by the people, and the government. But as a serious answer, I think .22lr Anschutz rifles sell like hotcakes

Yes, the Colt Pythons are always gone in a flash. Smith & Wesson 617's sell quickly, and I've also noticed that any well priced STI Trojan does not last too long either. While I watch the handguns a lot more closely than rifles, I would suggest that the model 2 BRNO's move almost as quickly as the model 1's. :)

There must be some mistake. And I have a nasty feeling I was there when I made it.....

At the moment complete, original(not reblued, reconditioned), all matching etc., top nick lithgow 303's are like Gold......the older the better.....and the better the barrel the better the price. The early lithgows are that red hot that most don't even make it to the websites to be advertised. Original military issue 1911 and 1911A1 45 autos are pretty cool as well.

Oh dear, how sad....never mind.

Yeah I agree with ya there! I'd also venture to say that pretty much any original Lithgow SMLE seems to get good prices (the older the better obviously) and never stays on the market that long these days.

Also, British-manufacture No4's in even ordinary condition seem to get relatively good prices & sell quickly too (nothing wrong with the Savage & Longbranch rifles but they made so many of them in comparison to the others that they're certainly not rare); those sweet unissued No4 Mk2s seem to really pull the big bucks too. Just as an example, an unissued post-war manufacture Polish Mosin M44 still in the grease (supposedly the Holy Grail quality-wise of M44s) can be had for around the $650-800 mark, while a No4 Mk2 in similar condition can set you back well over 2 grand.

you will all laugh but until the Adler was announced any IAC that came up on used guns did not last more than a few hours.

Have to agree there , grabbed two of the Ruger 96/22 's for myself , as they sell so quick.

okay, all joking aside the AK-47 Russian made is the most wanted rifle anywhere. we just can't get it.

"He got the whole nine yards" - as it happens World War II (1939–1945) aircraft machine gun belts (US 50 cal) were nine yards long.
