Parting out of Vintage Airguns

Recently, I have noticed on auction sites such as eBay and gb the parting out of what seems to be fully functional vintage airguns. In light of the fact that the pool of vintage airguns is continually reducing due to natural attrition, it is bothersome to me to see this happening. As an example, I saw a 1936 Daisy 25 being auctioned as 2 separate parts on eBay. Obviously, this is being done to maximize income. I have no issue with parting out when an air gun is non-operational. Although I respect the right of property owners to do as they wish with their own property, it just gives me a little heartburn when I see it. Is it just me or are other vintage air gun lovers suffering from heartburn also?
