Now, this is not a bi**h...........merely an observation...

An ebay seller and I agreed on prices on 2 fairly uncommon Crosman rifles, INCLUDING shipping.
This being the case, I am not complaining on the numbers on this deal.
Both rifles were listed with $35.00 shipping charges, a bit high for each.
He shipped both in the same box, and did a fairly good job of packing them securely.
When the box arrived, it displayed a shipping charge of $28.05 (as opposed to the $70.00 per his auctions) !!!
Now, again, this is just an observation, as the negotiated prices included shipping.(I didn't have time to discuss things, as I know another buyer who was chomping at the bit over these...)
But it speaks to his using shipping as a profit center on regular sales.........
I thought ebay frowned on that.

Well, at the end of the day the important thing is, can you live with the deal as it stands given the obvious deception?

You could contact the seller and request a refund in light of the shipping costs he saved by you buying both rifles.  He could say no, but maybe he'll feel generous.

Ebay debits the seller 12.5% of ALL money paid by the buyer, including shipping and tax, so they get paid either way.

Nah...we had reached an agreement for the rifles, including shipping, so it matters not how he pigeonholes the $$$$$$$$$

Every once in a while, when the planets align and the blue bird of paradise sits on your shoulder, you can still find a decent deal on ebay. Yeah, they are about as common as hen's teeth, but it happens, I just bought a Crosman 150 in really good shape for $70 shipped.

Not really sure myself but whatever it is it is a true "Steal" for such a unique air rilfel - NOT!!!, but you never know someone may bite.

I hate it when an unscrupuliouis seller tries to take advantage of a buyer who is just getting into the hobby or does not know any better.

WOW.... I bought two Beeman AR2078-B's... over a year apart from ecop and both went smooth.
Guess I will quit recommending them.
