Basically.

You see, I buy large parts lots of take off parts and sell the parts off individually.

I may pay .80 a part for a "large lot". Stuff like basic "junk" triggers run $15 while some of the better/rare USGI parts will bring $200-$375 for stuff like rare main spring housings, milled early a1 triggers, undercut safeties and slide stops, checkered slide stops.....

The last really BIG lot I bought was $2700, the details are kinda fuzzy but i paid something like .80 for 3400 parts. IF you sell each part for $15 i would make $51,000 with a $2700 investment. Funny thing is, I could have sold 9 of the 15 or so early checkered a1 colt arched main spring housings and paid off the lot. I dont know what the average price per part of the lot would be but it's well over $15 each.

If your interested in getting started in a side business PM me. I started with 3 m14 mags I bought for $5 each and made $40 IRRC. Dosent take to much time and its rewarding. Everytime I sell something its a rush, kinda like winning a decent size scratcher.

It's all about rolling your cash over and over until you have a nice little bank roll. It's easy to make money when you have 6-7k or more avaliable, when you see something that you can make some quick cash on you have the cash to buy it.

Paid for my bmw and 3 motorcycles along with stocking my armory. If it wasent for the gun parts I'd be driving a 89 camaro and shooting a hipoint.

That is a nice side business you have. You are essentially buying and selling commodities in an area where you know a ton, so that is how you can make a lot of money. Whether it is guns, cars, arts & crafts, etc....if you know the market you can take advantage and make some money. Nice work.
