  1. How many aks where converted by swd?

    We saw a lot of SWD converted AK's in the late 1980's (many in 5.56, which later were converted over to 7.62×39). I never personally saw a Pearl or other brand.
  2. Alex is a good guy. Known him for 20 plus years. The Mad Chilean! : )
  3. What if you can’t produce copy of Form 4 when LE asks?

    Since 1985, I have had to show proof to RSO's at two ranges before they would let us shoot. One was a club sanctioned shoot and one was a private indoor range. One time we were shooting on private property within view of the road with permission of the owner when a deputy responded to a noise complaint. One of our party was a deputy as well. He spoke with him in "deputeese" for a minute and he left without asking for anything. We regularly shoot at a local police range. All the officers know me and where I work and never ask to see paperwork. They never ask to shoot anything, but also never turn down a chance to shoot when offered. They also bring out some neat stuff they let us shoot as well. In FL, they say MG's are legal as long as possessed in compliance with federal law. I always have proof with me just in case and would have no problem showing to curious LEO's. Don't start none, won't be none.
  4. Are SBR's Still worth it

    I have both. Pros and cons to both. Just in case....Simple ATF change of mind makes all those braces go away (subject to seizure and or destruction without compensation) just like bump stocks : ( At least the SBR's have 86 years of lawful precedent...tax paid, federal permission, etc. For the purist, a stock looks better than a brace. Electronic Form 1's get approved in a much shorter amount of time than a mail in Form 4.
  5. What is an MP5 SBR by Terry Dyer worth?

    Thanks. Simple observations from the market. If I were still collecting, I would pay $7,200 for "as close to factory as one can get" Terry Dyer sear host. I've owned a bunch of HK MP5's and conversions over the last 35 years and a few clones from US and foreign companies. No comparison with a Dyer HK conversion. We have an SD (with a Knight's can) he did in the shop right now. It puts all others I've seen to shame.
  6. What is an MP5 SBR by Terry Dyer worth?

    Pre ban HK 94's go for $5k all day long. Even the recent HK's are going for close to that. With the pre ban 94's, one is exempt from US parts requirements to SBR it (IIRC) Add that value plus a Terry Dyer conversion. Add the accessories and it is worth what OP is asking.
  7. WTS C&R British MKII AC flex gun (15k)

    If I were still collecting, I would buy this. Did a deal with Steve 21/22 years ago and it went like clockwork. Think we connected on this site. Wish everyone was as easy and as honest as him to deal with.
  8. I'll take it if it is still available. Waffenundbier(removespam)@aol.com. Steve
  9. WTS: Transferrable Collector Grade IMI RR UZI

    Robert is First Class. I've known him for 20 years.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

    Bumped to top. Lower price. $425 shipped. Thanks!
  14. 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.

  15. SOLD Czech Vz24/26 SOLD

    Bump to top. Reduced price. $455 shipped. Thanks!
  16. 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.
  17. Did a telephone order for a couple threaded barrels at the beginning of the week. They shipped same day. Barrels arrived as advertised. Thanks!
  18. 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 ; )
  19. 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.
  20. HOW THE HELL DID THIS ONE GET IGNORED???

    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 : )
  21. HOW THE HELL DID THIS ONE GET IGNORED???

    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).
  22. So the girlfriend and I are at craft festival the other day (don't laugh, I ran into one other guy I know who sets up tables at gun shows there with his wife, too). As we were leaving, we got stopped by one of the petition gatherer people we so skillfully dodged on the way in (wearing Trump 2020 regalia) who asked me if I would sign a petition. I asked what for and he said "in support of the Second Amendment." You had me at Second Amendment. As I'm filling out the form, he politely asked another passer by if he would like to sign a petition. The passer by screamed "F*CK NO!" A hush fell over the crowd and I took the opportunity to loudly remark (without looking up from the petition petition...and without even thinking), "Must be a democrat.....or a Hillary supporter." My girlfriend later told me that upon hearing this, he slammed on the breaks, turned and shot a dirty look. Making the wise choice, he just kept a steppin'. I then commented, "no need to be rude." Next to the Second Amendment petition guy was the "legalize marijuana" petition guy. He didn't bother asking Mr. F*UCK NO to sign his. Had I been of quicker wit, I would have said, "Sounds like someone needs to sign the legal marijuana petition." Sad thing is just moments prior my being asked to sign the petition, my girlfriend and I were discussing how angry and unhinged and intolerant the anti Trumpers are. She said let's walk past those people with the Trump stickers, because I don't want to become a target by anti Trumpers. 15 seconds later....
  23. And for those of you watching your sodium and cholesterol intake, substitute olive oil and ground black pepper on the brussel sprouts.
  24. Tribute to a master..Tim Bixler/SCRC

    IIRC, he made a really cool vertical fore grip/ barrel extension for the MAC series. SOF Magazine did a feature on him in the late 1970's/early 1980's. I miss those days.
  25. M134 Mini Gun Build - Lots of Photos

    Excellent effort, Aaron. Not as easy as it looks ; ) Any plans for a Predator pack (with batteries)?
