  2. WTS: Transferrable Collector Grade IMI RR UZI

    Robert is First Class. I've known him for 20 years.
  3. MG34 questions.. (becoming a 8mm ammo list)

    Ideally a Norwegian issued 7.62 conversion kit. Beyond that, something by Landies. Can't advise about any other kits. Folke's book is the shite. Gotta have it. Cost be dammed. You have an MG34, man. Buy spares where you can (although it never fails, when I sell the gun, I end up throwing the spares in with it......have to stop doing that....because I either end up buying another gun, a friend ends up buying a gun, or the costs of spares goes nuts). Good luck.
  4. MG34 questions.. (becoming a 8mm ammo list)

    Echo stay away from Turkish. A buddy blew up a top cover with that toxic crap. Try to get a 7.62 NATO conversion kit (Norwegian or decent US made. 8x57 is going the way of 8x33. And get Folke M's book.
  5. Who do you use to ship firearms?

    I have had the best luck with USPS. Once, when I shipped an MG via UPS, I asked idiot at counter if I could insure for $10,000 and they said yes. I then spent 1/2 hour carefully packing the gun while they watched. I returned to the counter and they said that a supervisor needs to inspect the item to be insured for that much. I unpacked the gun and waited for the supervisor to come to the counter. He says I can't insure it for $10,000 because it's only worth $1,000. I asked him to show me where he could buy transferable MP5s for $1,000 so that I can buy some more. He then said oh a collectible, that's a different matter we don't insure collectibles. Went round and round with him and he finally agreed to ship for the insured amount if I shipped overnight. Had one idiot at USPS once, but that's a different story for a different time. My local PO is great. Fed Ex is the worst. They have a habit of forwarding items shipped to me to other addresses. Idiots.

  8. Chest outside is a little banged around, but the inside is decent. Contents label intact. Comes with all the parts shown including two bolts, two recoil spring assemblies, five magazines in thick plastic, barrels, small parts, gauges, etc. The parts are excellent to un-issued condition. Refer to photos. I want to sell the whole set as is. I do have some duplicates (bolts, recoil spring assemblies, end caps, small parts, another case sans label) not shown that I can sell separately. Contains machine gun parts. Be sure this item is legal for you to own before you commit to purchase. Will not ship to prohibited States. Can only ship to Continental US. Buyer assumes all liabilities regarding purchase and use of this item. Pay by USPS Money Order. Not set up for cards or PayPal because of fraud, charge backs, and their anti-gun policies. I've been buying, selling and trading on these boards and the old Subguns since they started. A+ rating on GB since 2009 as Armalitestuff. First "I'll Take It" email reserves it. Please mail payment within seven days of my confirmation email. Waffenundbier@(removespam)aol.com Thanks
  9. With gun confiscation eminent in VA...

    A mesh metal foyer. Bust in the front door and find they've run into a cage (ala Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels). Only instead of a public school type with an air rifle, it's buckets of dung suspended above them. Go Joe Dirt on them. Strictly hypothetically speaking here.
  10. Last recession

    I guess I could have sold other stuff, but at the time a fast dollar was faster than ten slow dimes. It went to a buddy, so all the better. I don't sell guns for a living, so I don't have to get top dollar. Coincidentally, the last four machine guns I've sold since 2010 were sold at approximately 3/4 of market value and the last for I've purchased since 2010 were purchased (all word of mouth via my circle of machine gun friends) at approximately 3/4 market value. It's all in good fun ; )
  11. Last recession

    I'm gonna say they took about a 40% hit in value then. I only sold one MG in 2008. M1A1 Thompson valued at @$20,000 right before the crisis, ended up going for $14,000 late 2008 (thanks, second ex wife for me having to sell). It went to a buddy, so I didn't feel as bad. I made a decent profit (paid $1500/1600 for it ca.1990 and shot it a bunch). Five years later, I bought another for only $1k more than I sold the first one for. Basically a loan of $14,000 for five years for $1000 interest. They go for $20,000/25,000 now, so not as good as it could have been, but still. M16's, M60's, MAC's, MP5's and some C&R guns seem to have bounced back even better.

    I never give it for 4473. They say it's optional, so I don't give it (mainly just to be obstinate and to enjoy hearing the dealer tell the NICS check person "refused" when they get to that part). When they make it mandatory, I won't have a choice, bit until then.... : p : )
  13. Did a telephone order for a couple threaded barrels at the beginning of the week. They shipped same day. Barrels arrived as advertised. Thanks!

    I never give my SSN on the 4473. I've never had problem on a call in, so no need. Until they make it mandatory, I won't do it. They may now want the SSN on the Form 4 because if you owe money to the IRS, maybe the $200 will go to them first. Kinda like how you don't get a tax refund if you owe them money (thanks second ex wife for them learning me that little nugget of info).
  15. And for those of you watching your sodium and cholesterol intake, substitute olive oil and ground black pepper on the brussel sprouts.
