  1. Price check on M1 Carbines

    I’ve seen a few import stamped usgi M1 Carbines sell for over 1000 ea. And they went fast. 1400 to 1800 for a mixmaster post war rebuild seems to be the average price these days. I’ve personally sold several “nice” examples for well above 2000 per in the last twelve months. R/s, Hiller..........
  2. I'm looking to swap a Swedish M1937 I,m looking to swap a swedih pistol grip trigger housing into my m1918a2. Specific to the trigger housing and internal trigger housing parts. I've heard the trigger housing will interchange. and that the eject has to be modified when putting an m1918 ejector into a swedish housing. What about the springs, trigger, sear, safety lever, sear carrier, ect....? Any advise, R/s, Hiller.........................
  3. E-File Form 3 Approval Times

    Averaging about week. R/s, Hiller................
  4. Wife as responsible person?? FFL/sot

    Why didn't I think of that! R/s, Hiller.......................
  5. I/m an ffl03/nfa firearms dealer. Thimking about adding wife as responsible person. I'm in good health but thought if anything were to unexpectedly happen to me, like I died or something bad happened, my wife would be able to liquidate my inventory. Is this good thinking or not? Would the e form 7 be adequate to accomplish things? R/s, Hiller.................................
  6. Had a 20 round mag dump runaway. Hxp ammo. So did a disassembly/inspection/reassembly. Rifle looked fine inside and out. Recoil spring had proper length and action was smooth and properly lubed. Chamber was clean. Paid special attention to trigger assembly and gas system. Thinking either the sear wasn’t grabbing the slide or there was insufficient gas pressure to drive the slide back far enough for the sear to catch. So I tried dummy rounds and the action worked fine. Set the change lever to single shot. Loaded 1 round in the 20 round mag and it fired and locked the bolt open. Loaded 2 rounds and it fired both with one pull of the trigger then locked the bolt back. Loaded 2 more in the 20 round mag and got the same results. Shot both rounds on one trigger pull then locked the bolt open. switched to a 30 round mag. Loaded 2 rounds. Now it changed to one round fired per trigger pull. Worked perfectly in single shot mode. Loaded 10 rounds in the 30 round mag and single shot worked perfectly again. Loaded 30 rounds and sent 3/4 round bursts until mag was empty and the rifle works great. Kicking the brass out forwards 2-4 meters. I’m glad the rifle works but can’t for the life of me figure how a twenty round mag could cause the rifle to dump the whole mag. I tried two different 20 round mags and had the same problem with both. Can’t see the mags dragging on anything to create excessive friction. Unless the cartridges in the mag are sitting up to high and somehow rubbing the bottom of the bolt. But I’m not buying that either. I don’t know why the mag would cause runaways. I’m sure someone here that has experience with the bar can explain this to me hopefully. Probably something real simple I’m overlooking. R/s, Hiller............
  7. Repair manual for m1918a2 BAR??

    I’ve got a copy of the base shop data manual but thanx for the offer. Looking for more detail than the shop datebook contains. R/s, Hiller.........
  8. Does anyone here know of the availability of a good repair manual for the bar? I think I already have all the usgi manuals. I'm looking for a good tech manual like the kuhnhausen series of manuals he's published for the m14, 1911, m1 carbine, ect... These manuals have specs and tolerances for every part. The usgi manuals just don't go into enough detail for me. R/s, Hiller..........................
  9. Whats with the op rod guide? R/s, Hiller....................
  10. What part is serialized? R/s, Hiller..................
  11. M2 Carbine Research/Questions

    I own a straight up m2 inland. I'll never part with it. Historical, functional, useful, light, tons of parts availability including new 30 round mags. Not some cobbled together last minute under the amnesty deadline piece of crap. well thought out full auto design by gm corp. USGI parts throughout. Not the perfect machine gun. However for the weekend warrior to jungle combat it WILL get the job done. R/s, Hiller.......................
  12. Losing FFL/SOT and selling NFA parts

    Sounds like a load of bull to me!
  13. Which Thompson for 1st machine gun?

    I say go for the usgi thompson. As long as it's not a reweld I don't see how you can go wrong. R/s, Hiller.................................................
  14. I've seen 2 nice examples sell in the last 12 months. You just have to keep looking. R/s, Hiller......................
  15. Owning M2HB

    I've owned an m2 for 20+ years. I can shoot it where I live on the back 40. I used to shoot it alot and have always enjoyed shooting it. I reload my own ammo and bought all my reloading stuff back in the day. And I bought LOTS of reloading supplies. Powder/primers/projo's. Less than a buck a round for me so cost is not an issue. I haven't shot the m2 in a few years now. Last few times I did shoot it my back would be sore for some days afterwards. The wieght of my mount/gun/ammo just puts to much strain on my back. I'm alot older now than when I first got the machine gun. So if you're thinking about getting one make sure your back is good because it is a bit of a job hauling all that stuff around. Here's Judy getting some trigger time. R/s, Hiller........................................
