    My Amnesty Beretta 38A Is Going To Auction This Month

    I had a beautiful amnesty registered Beretta 38A machine gun. I consigned it to Morphy's Auctions. It is a beautiful example with all matching numbers and a cool story how it came into my possession.

    Why Morphy's vs. Rock Island or any other similar auction house?
    My name is actually Scott and I really do live in Texas.

    I know, not very creative but it is factual.

    By the way - Facebook is truly evil; resist the urge to participate.

    Why not list it on Sturmgewehr.com and avoid all the BS with commissions and taxes?

    The Sturm board requires a set sale price. It's not an auction site where the selling price can, and often does, get a better final payout to the seller.

    MHO, YMMV, etc. Be well.

    Set a sale price that will make you VERY, VERY happy if someone goes for it but post it OBO so you can negotiate via PM or offline via phone, text or e-mail. "It ain't rocket surgery."

    I didn't say I wanted to buy it. But I'll listen to a story.

    OK folks here is the story as told to me by the owner:
    Him and his family were waiting when his uncle arrived from war. He looked at his 8 year old nephew, and said he had a surprise for him. Gave him the 38A he picked up on the battlefield. Fast forward to 1968 and the nephew was in his early 30's. He had the foresight to register it. I bought it from the nephew a few years ago. Another dealer was offered the gun but I was the lucky buyer. Have shot it several times. Smooth as silk.

    Sold 46K. Unbelievable job by Morphys. I could not be happier and encourage anyone thinking of selling to call them.

    Congrats. Auctions can be a weird environment where some people cannot accept to be beaten. When you get at least two of these personalities together in the same auction it can get very interesting.

    I was more impressed by the $66K hammer price for your silenced Sten

    Morphys did a GREAT job. They got good money for everything. John Keene is THE GUY if you want to sell guns. Did you see the Spitfire? Last I saw it was up to 8K not counting buyers fee. FOR A SPITFIRE! Apparently, anything is possible when Americans have 2T dollars burning a hole in their pocket!
