Gunbroker is full of trapdoors. I look on it for them and a lot of other stuff all the time even though I haven't the working cash anymore to buy any of it. It's sort of like going to a gun show and walking around looking at the antique guns on all the tables. It's enjoyable. also, you never know when somebody will put their grampa's old Long Range trapdoor on Gunbroker for $1,000.00, not knowing what it is, but figuring that it would be a lot of money in their hands for an old gun. Trick is, you have to be one of the very first to look at it who knows what their looking at. Then there are the handful of trapdoors that are recorded by serial number as having been salvaged off of the Battleship Main. They're still out there. I once came across one of the Winchester Lee straight pull rifles that'd been salvaged off of the Battleship Main that sank in Havana Harbor at a gun show. This was 1980 and the asking price was $500.00 . Wish I had the money then. Anyway, you never know what you'll find at any given moment. You just have to be ready with the cash and be the first one to notice it. So...Keep looking a Gunbroker and go to those shows and keep an eye peeled for what the Widows and Orphans bring in.
