Why is this so expensive?

Why is this so expensive @ $300? I'm just curious, know next to nothing about this product and product line:

V3 Commando in good shape, rust inside body tube, shoots good with light leak

Thanks!

have you done a search of the sale threads to see if there are any for sale there? I'll save you the time. There aren't. There haven't been either. These aren't a dime a dozen markers. Like lots of items of this nature, when they are older, and not many of them, the price goes up.

Gotcha, I was just wondering if there was anything particularly special about this one item. Thanks Long Beard.

It's one of two Nelson models that WGP produced. The Commando preceded the Ranger which had a much larger production run. The Ranger was basically a more refined version of the Commando.

Commandos don't come up FS very often compared to Rangers, hence the price.

Ah, this makes sense. Slowly but surely, I'm learning!
