  1. OPEN THANK YOU !

    Hi Mike, Was always great to talk. Keep the G3 and K at your side. Reaching for 2nd with the M22 must have been a rush. Go out and give the old Gatling a crank. Appreciate your sharing your experiences. You knowledge is priceless. Take care, Grasshopper
  2. WTS: WH 1928 Thompson, Form 4 FL, $14K

    Hi. Thanks to all that have responded. I'm working through the list. I believe I have the Thompson sold. Buyer wants a video of the gun running (can't blame him on that). We are on the edge of a tropical storm/hurricane right now. I'll know for sure by Tuesday as I can get out the the range Monday if this thing blows over. Grasshopper
  3. WTS: WH 1928 Thompson, Form 4 FL, $14K

    Thanks to all that have inquired. Price has been reduced. Grasshopper
  4. Good sight for Machine gun

    Hi Ironbb, All kidding aside, a good set of iron sights can be amazing. I got the opportunity to shoot IPSC steel targets @ 150 yards in March. Multiple round bursts resulted in multiple rings of the target. While not hi-tech, a good set of irons works in very adverse conditions, is light weight, and quite robust. I've even attached a set of MBUS flip-up sights on a short rail and had great results. Just flip them down when you pack-up to keep them from getting damaged in transit. You can't get lighter than a set of MBUS. As usual, YMMV. Enjoy, Grasshopper
  5. Offered for sale is a transferable West Hurley Thompson SMG. The gun has US GI internals. Please see the linked pictures for condition. What you see is what you get. The gun comes with 2x30 round mags, 2x20 round mags. It also has the original shipping box with date and postage markings. The firearms S/N has had the last few numbers removed for the buyer’s privacy. The gun is currently on a Form 4 in Florida, MM173, I-95. I'd be happy to supply many references from the local shooting community. Remember. The West Hurley Thompson are C&R. With a C&R license ($30/3 years) it ships directly to your home (all NFA transfer regulations still apply). Note: After taking the photos I realized that it has a "shooter" grade lower grip frame and butt stock. We had taken it out for some quality time at the range and I forgot to switch it back. The correct grip frame finish matches the upper and the butt stock has the sling swivel in the top. Yes this takes the drum magazines. Gun Parts Corporation has nice reproduction 50 and 100 round drums that work! 50% starts the paperwork. Remainder due on approved transfer. Buyer pays shipping & insurance. Face-to-face pick-up ok.

  8. Full Auto Spitfire For Sale, $5000.00

    Hi, Do you know if the Spitfire is C&R eligible?
  9. HK 91 22LR conversions

    Hi JecIII, IIRC, the mag that Buddy has in the photo is a later magazine. The earlier had a bit more steel about the feed lips and a steel pin that goes into the little hole below the chamber in the barrel liner. (BTW, if you take care that barrel liner is just fine.) Earlier mags were also weighted to feel like a loaded 7.62 magazine. OMG. I carry 8 of those magazines in competition. The weight kills me. Additional mags are hard to come by. Best is to scrounge shows, friends, and helpful folks on line. For a time the mags were available from vendors but were never cheap. The last of the used ones were for $150 each. New ones were $200 each. Now used ones are $280 each as the only way to get them easily is buy another kit. I've tried the BDM/Uzi mag thing. I'd skip it if you want reliability. If you want cheap that has marginal reliability, it may be an option. Folks claim that the AM180 drum adapters work. I have not personally seen one run. Mine will run on anything. I like the lower power rounds like Federal Bulk as it runs a bit slower. While the conversion is built like a tank (and the G3 weighs like a tank!), I'm with the other poster that enjoys the 16/22 route. Higher capacity magazines that are cheap and work. 20 rounds in the G3 runs out rather quickly. Enjoy the kit. You got a great deal on it. Grasshopper
  10. WTB Police 6 Ingram Machine Gun Magazines

    Hi All, IIRC, Apex Gun Parts bought out the remaining M6 magazines from Century who bought them out from the Auction down in Miami. Google is your buddy. There are several places on the interweb selling NIW M6 magazines. HTH, Grasshopper
  11. C&R NFA Transfer - Individual to C&R 03

    Hi jkb471, Not a problem. Out of state NFA to your C&R should be AOK as long as the firearm is C&R. I've done it for years to avoid the "two stamp" out of state purchase. That being said, AFAIK, a Trust cannot hold a C&R Collectors License. Transfer of an out-of-state C&R NFA to a Trust using a C&R collectors license is a no-go. If a Trust has a C&R Collectors License I think something is wrong. I'm just a person. I have no affiliation with folks that practice law for a living. I could be wrong. This is only what I have experienced. Enjoy, Grasshopper
  12. Sell Norrell .22 for a HK pack? or Not?

    Hi Mike, For non-factory Ruger 10-22 mags (does not work with factory mags!), I'd give the McFadden Lightning Grip Loader a try. It is a nice loader with changeable magwells. I've used the loader for Thompson 22 (BDM & JAC mags), 16/22 mags (BDM), and uzi 22 mags (Vector) and all works quite well. I've not personally used it for the 10-22. For the firearms I've mentioned above, I've shot up to 4300 rounds/day (range open house) so if it is used with care, it doesn't break too soon. http://www.mcfaden.com/product-p/lightnin-grip.htm http://www.mcfaden.com/product-p/10-22rifleadapteronly.htm I love the visual of running about in the Thing "hunting" rats. Reminds me of the troubles with hanging from one hand in a corn crib trying to figure out how to reload my pistol with one hand while hunting rats. Enjoy, Grasshopper
  13. WTK: The "Merle" Thompson 22lr conversion kit.

    Hi J50shootr, Yes. Best to call Merle. While he has computers he feels much more at home with the phone. Buy his kit. Aside from the somewhat enormous weight of a Thompson in 22RF, I've found it one of the best platforms for the conversion. While not recommended, last year I put 3500 rounds down range between cleanings. Ran out of ammo or there would have been more shooting. The kit is not that ammo sensitive but guns may vary. Enjoy, Grasshopper
