  1. Sorry for your loss ( and even more sorry you don't still have them to sell...;))
  2. Tippmann and then Lakeside sold miniature ammo cans with the 1/2 scale 1919s and 1917s. According to Eric a Lakeside he also sold a bunch of them separately as souvenirs. I am ideally looking for 2. thanks Brad

  4. TNW 50 semi quality

    Title says it. Anyone have thoughts / experience on the TNW semi M2 quality?
  5. M16 tutorial

    Thanks, very helpful
  6. M16 tutorial

    Can anyone point me to a tutorial on all the M16 variations, pros/cons. I know there are original m16s, auto-sears, lightening links and probably some other stuff. I am interested in a shooter rather than collector, but don't need to be cheap about it. I want something that is right. I am hoping that something like the HK conversion tutorial exists. Thanks
  7. Value of Furr Arms Gatling Gun

    For what it is worth, I bought the Morphy gun (my third gatling). It needs some cleaning up internally and externally (2ish days work) but otherwise in good condition. I thought $8400 was a pretty good price but not a steal and I have been following these for a while. As someone said earlier, depends on what buyers show up. I would think that for $13k it needs to be in pristine mint condition and you have to wait for the right guy
  8. MG's as an investment

    I think that people are confusing a couple of things. (having been in the finance business for a few decades). There is obviously no question that MGs have been a great investment at the margin for the last 30 years. It has clearly been driven by the fixed pool, to the point where today an HK is a $2K gun attached to a $35K license. But, as they say, past performance is no guarantee of future results. The pool of buyers that can afford to play is getting increasingly smaller. It is inconceivable that todays $35k sear will go up another 35 times in the next 30 years (or even likely double). In addition, one can sell at these prices today at the margin (as few units at a time), but there is no chance there are funds available to get all of the older collectors out at current values. (175,000 guns in the registry at, pick a number, $20k each is $3.5 Billion dollars!). Two big auctions with a lot of inventory this fall may give a sense. Nevermind the, admittedly small, risk that the laws change. I say all of this as someone who has finally moved to a free state and has $100k in MGs and suppressors in paperwork. I suspect that there is at least a 50% chance that this will be a write-off, but fun while it (and I) lasted.
