  1. I don’t care who he bangs. He has been a staunch 2a supporter for a long time.
  2. FN SCAR 20S full auto kit?

    Assuming you’re an SOT the 20S can be converted the same as the 17S, as it uses the same carrier and lower.
  3. Sig 551A1

    That's a 556 conversion with diopter rear sight welded in place, upper refinished gray, chopped and threaded barrel with 552 flash hider, a Swiss lower, and Swiss furniture.
  4. Steyr AUG 9mm stock for shooting 223 ?

    An Austrian mil type on Lightfighter posted that this can be done and makes for a nice case deflector.
  5. SP89 Redo?

    I hear what you're saying and to some degree I agree with you. However, a premium is placed on HKs that have been converted to be as close to factory correct as their select-fire counterparts and part of this conversion is remarking them to the "correct" model. I say "correct" model, because at their core these semiauto HKs are bastardized firearms made (largely) to comply with our BS restrictive laws in the US. Don't view it as further bastardizing the bastard; view it as almost legitimizing a bastard model. As for the legality of remarking performed outside the factory, it is legal. ATF did rule that it is illegal to remark a title-2 firearm once it has been made/manufactured as a title-2. This is patently not legal for them to enforce, however I have no desire to be the test case. The bottom line - if you think you may ever sell said title-2 HK, remark it before it is a title-2 firearm or be prepared to have a firearm that is slightly less desirable, slightly less valuable than the same item that has been remarked.
  6. I recommend against parting out factory assembled transferable MGs. Part of their allure is that they are factory MGs. When you part them out, not only are you affecting future collectibility, you are also doing a disservice to future owners. Some will say, it's your firearm do with it as you please. However I believe as owners of transferable MGs we are custodians of rare collectible items, and nowhere is this more to the point than factory original transferable MGs. I will not permanently alter a factory original transferable. Parting the upper and lower is forever altering that Colt.
  7. SP89 Redo?

    I think it depends whether you want to suppress your K. If you don't, I wouldn't spend the money to convert to mp5k-n. If on the other hand you want to add a suppressor, then by all means go for it. The best bet for a K-N barrel is the B&T imported barrels. These are Swiss B&T mp5k-n barrels made to HK spec. Given B&T's long time cozy relationship with HK, I consider these to be on par with a factory HK barrel. Hkparts.net retails them. You will also want the #28 locking piece for suppressed mp5k use. They are also available through hkparts. Also, you will want it remarked "MP5K-N", as that is correct for a K with the Navy threaded/3-lugged barrel.
  8. Neo, don't cheap out on a safe. Your collection warrants a composite TL30 or better yet a TL30x6. Those safes you are looking at are residential security containers (RSC) and are easily defeated using a Sawzall or in some cases as little as a crowbar with a cheater bar. In light of the fact that you live in Memphis, you NEED a true UL-listed high security safe. Fancy rubber interiors are no substitute for security and you can easily have a custom interior made (or make it yourself) for a high security safe. Don't be led astray by fancy finishes and interiors. Buy a UL-listed composite TL30 (not a plate steel TL30) or TL30x6. For added protection, you can alarm the safe including seismic sensor, door sensor, and tilt sensor to add layers of security. Nothing short of a dedicated well experienced safe cracker will be able to get into a composite TL30x6. And even then, it would at a very least take them longer than 30 minutes to crack the safe. The addition of an alarm with the aforementioned sensors with wifi and cellular connectivity will ensure that should anyone attempt an attack, they would have insufficient time to get in before the police arrive. Such a safe will weigh about 2 tons. Bolt it to the foundation or floor and it is not going anywhere. Even if you don't bolt to the floor/foundation, it is not likely going anywhere. And in the very unlikely event someone attempted to move it, the seismic sensor will trigger the alarm. Please heed this advice. As owners of transferable MGs we are stewards of valuable irreplaceable assets and I feel we should view this seriously and ensure these are preserved for future generations. Properly securing these items is essential to this.
  9. Neo, thanks for posting photos. That is a very neat m16 indeed! A recommendation re: safes. You now have a collection worthy of something far more secure than a standard RSC gun safe. I strongly suggest you look into a composite TL30x6 (actually I believe all TL30x6 are composite). AMSEC makes one specifically designed as a gun safe. Less expensive option is to find one that is used/reconditioned from a safe and vault store. A proper size x6 is going to weigh just at or over 2 tons and for insurance purposes in the diamond industry they can usually store $750k of insured valuables. They are cumbersome and expensive, but worth it.
  10. Need Help Valuing Swiss Arms SG 551-2 P SWAT

    OP said they are select-fire, so not pre-samples. If semiauto only SBRs they would be treated like a pre-sample.
  11. SIG 556 Reassembly Help Needed

    Email sent.
  12. The LaFrance frames do not use the factory autosear, as the hole for the autosear axis pin is absent. LaFrance appears to have registered semiauto frames, while using a non-factory autosear installed the same way that fleming, qualified, and S&H sears install in a semiauto frame.
  13. Out of curiosity why are you waiting to just make the deadline?
  14. WTS: Colt SMG 9mm Parts Kit $750

    Roger/Midwest is good to go. I've dealt with him many times. All smooth transactions. Deal in confidence!
  15. DD's in NC???

    Yes you can.
  16. WTB Colt M16A2 Auto marked dark grey

    PM'd you
  17. Neo, how were your LaFrance packs done? When I was looking for a registered frame, I considered LaFrance but was under the impression that they were semiauto frames with unserialized non-factory autosear. Is this the case?
  18. Pre 86 Samples owned by a Corporation

    But what if the corp itself was sold? I was under the impression that because the items are owned by the corp, the new owner of the corp would not need SOT.
  19. WTS Belt-Fed MK46 M249 $7850

    I agree. If there was a tech branch letter, I would own one of these in a heartbeat.
  20. Is this a 16" barrel or a 14.3" barrel with a barrel extension added?
  21. Should We Add an HK Specific Market Board?

    I like the idea of an HK specific discussion section, but keep items being sold on the respective title-1, title-2, and parts/accessory sales boards.
  22. Sig 551A1

    That's the 551a1, which is what the OP posted a photo showing.
  23. Red Flag Customer Questions (dealer input please)

    I agree. Report him to his local LE. Sounds suspicious.
  24. What was your first major Machine Gun Shoot?

    My first shoot was around 1998 in Miami at one of Ruben Mendiola's gatherings at Trail Glades Range. Ruben let me shoot his Colt M16A2 open bolt LMG. It wasn't until 2002 that I started buying MGs.
