Yea, those are the prices I've been seeing for those items. Not cheap, but at least I'd finaly have a set.
Oh, without a doubt Ray! As I'm fully aware of. They do just keep going up, don't they?

Im not going to let anyone just Dig into my pocket though.

Last year a Device, scabbard, rifle and no mag went for 47k+.
At Rock Island. It was a rebuilt one.
John, it's allways bothered me that I walked away from a complete set about 26 years ago that was going for what was then the astronomical sum of $2,500.00 .
That same set today would go for about 20 times that. Maybe they've topped off in value for awhile, maybe not. I'd rather have one though and enjoy it than to not have one. Just looking for what's out there and what's available. I'm not going to jump on just the first one, and maybe for the time being, the only one to come along for sale. It'll depend on the items and what the asking price is.

Actually, that wasn't a bad price.

Ammo goes for 3-5$ per round. Depends on condition of ammo and the box. If all you want is the ammo to shoot, then buy individual rounds. They are about 1.50 ea but not all will fire. Like pistachios, a few bum ones in the bag.
Try john Spangler -Google him. He may have loose ones.
Collector ammo in a nice box is a must also.
The scabbards are hard to come by as are mags.
I'd think that empty cases or made up cases cut to proper length could be reloaded.
