Is this a scam?

I can't quite figure this out. Is this a CCM dealer or someone trying to play middle-man? Not sure what the MSRP is on a T2 but it looks like the price listed on this "pre-order" is cheaper than comporable guns listed from CCMDirect. Also looks like they received a negative feedback for a similar auction for "non-delivery".

CCM T2 Autotrigger PUMP MID BLOCK Autococker Pre Order - eBay (item 130476264929 end time Feb-15-11 16:55:22 PST)

I have no idea who the seller is and I have no beef with them. Just seems a bit strange to me.... maybe even a conflict of interest as CCM sells directly on Ebay? (I'm assuming the seller has no affiliation).

I suppose there's nothing against buying a gun new and reselling it but I'm a bit hazy on this whole third party ebay pre-order thing.

Strange how they can offer that for $50 less than CCM can in their own store.

Unless that is the "base price" and then when you tell them what options you want they jack it up. They don't ever say that but their description says you tell them what you want on the gun. So maybe they nickel and dime the customer that way and make up the difference, although they certainly wouldn't be making very much profit per gun since even doing that I can't imagine their price would go up that much.

I've been wondering the same for quite some time. That guy has been doing that pretty much since I started saving for a CCM purchase over a year ago.

Just wondering/throwing this out their, but maybe he's a dealer for CCM? Has a wholesale account and is discounting the price to be lower than CCMs themselves so that people go to him rather than CCM direct?

Read the feedback. A good majority of the "positives" also reflect improper shipments, etc.

He should have a lot more neutrals and negatives than he does.

It does say Pre-order.
So maybe that is what you have to put down, and when it comes in you have to pay the remainder? Just a thought.

I wouldn't touch it with a 10ft poll if it were dead...

It's not worth losing the peace of mind not to purchase direct from CCM.

BBBB-but you get winny hopper out of it!

His feedback is pretty horrendous with 2 recent negatives. That should scream red flag for anyone.
