  1. WTS: General Motors, div. (BLC) ANM2 .30, C&R

    No. C&R MG's are worth more. If the gun were sold as a C&R and the status was lost (due to some investigation) then the value of the gun would drop. Some folk only buy C&R's even though their state does not require it. At this point as long as the gun is marketed as a C&R the seller might have some liability if the gun were to be sold as a C&R and latter discovered not to be a C&R. Simple solution: Remove C&R claims from listing.
  2. I am looking for any spare parts or assemblies for the Armalite AR17 shotgun. Black or gold or unfinished is fine. I wager that someone out there has a choke or a choke wrench they forgot to include when their AR17 was sold.
  3. Buyer Feedback for Seller "RORY"

    This thread has served its purpose. Propose that a moderator lock it up.
  4. Does anyone have a really trashed Sudanese/Cuban AR10 handguard to get rid of? A friend and I are looking at reproducing the handguards and it would help if one were deconstructed to expose the front and rear caps and the inner heat shield. The Sudanese/Cuban AR10's were made in Holland from 1957-1959 and had one-piece handguards shown in the photos below. Even if unused, these handguards tended to fail over time due to degradation of the inner foam insulation. Cuban Sudanese Guatemalan
  5. Buyer Feedback for Seller "RORY"

    Summary: He said / she said situation. Either Rory is a "good as gold" experienced MG seller or a cheap crook. Either mhkaihei had been swindled or he is a whiner seeking revenge against Rory for various deficiencies he claimed to experience as a buyer from Rory.

    And then there is the tax savings and reasonable shipping charges when dealing within the "family".
  7. Buyer Feedback for Seller "RORY"

    Even taking the OP at face value this is not a scam, rather a misunderstanding. Rory has an excellent reputation and you can read his side of the story at the 1919a4 forum where he is well-known and respected. I bought a relatively expensive MG via Rory on a handshake and would eagerly do it again.
  8. Can a C & R purchase a pre-sample?

    I would wager that the Dutch AR10 linked below is actually a premay sample even though the seller advertises it as fully transferable. The serial number is smack in the range of premay Guatemalan AR10s. and I have never seen a Guat AR10 in the US that was not a pre may. https://otbfirearms.com/armalite-ar-10-308-dutch/ Anyway, I emailed the seller suggesting he investigate. He had listed the gun for $25K and I let him know that pre may AR10s like his go for $8K-10K. He reacted by adding another $20K to his price. So I guess its more on display than for sale anyway so no buyer will be harmed.

  10. WTB: ORIGINAL Portuguese AR10 Parts

    Two aluminum pistol grips and one original composite grip are on gunchoker right now. The seller is rock solid The aluminum grips are gun to look at. However, they are dang heavy,
  11. WTB: ORIGINAL Portuguese AR10 Parts

    Aluminum pistol grips are fairly easy to find and some still have paint and debris left on them from Africa. I have seen many and they were produced in such a way that the stippling is identical. The aluminum handguards I have seen share a common design and I would like to believe they were made while the rifles were in service in Africa. Several varieties of aluminum buttstocks exist. The one below is a very heavy two-piece model that had never been assembled. I have also see a light weight one-piece hollow model that I believe was made in the USA in the 1980s. The original Portuguese buttstocks were of molded polycarbonate and subject to fracture. Those buttstocks also do not age well and stress cracking would often occur even on well stored or unfired guns. The fiber composite buttstocks on many Portuguese AR10s were replacement parts made by the Portuguese military.
  12. WTB: ORIGINAL Portuguese AR10 Parts

    I recall you (the OP) have a Portuguese AR10 and would like to upgrade the upper half. Many of these guns were kept in shooting condition by having the 4 piece handguard system replaced by a simple 1 piece plastic or wood handguard. It is nearly impossible to restore such a rifle to its original stage, since the heat shield portion of the handguard can not be found. Many have tried to reproduce the heat shields but have not succeeded. This morning an original heat shield set was listed on GB.
  13. German Firearms Act

    I do not know about German laws in particular. However, I have imported items from other EU countries that were registered. For example, virtually all of the EU requires bolt heads to be registered. Even though US customs might not require an import permit (form 6) it is nice to have one when importing such an item. The exporter gets an export permit for the bolt head and then uses the approved form 6 to prove that the evil bolt head is going to someone with permission to have it.
  14. I have known several germans from their time as exchange students. Not one of them had any interest in family/WWII items like medals, porstcards, etc. One 30 year old assured me that he burned every one of grandpap's possessions was was associated with WWII. He was surprised to know that US collectors were very interested in the items he destroyed, even though there was no family connection. This observation along with the difficulty of owning semi auto pistols in germany makes me confident that the Luger is safer and more prized in US hands.
  15. Example MG sale contract

    8) I'm not sure what you mean by notification of seller's heirs of pending sale. Unless, you mean that the seller dies before they ship the gun to you or your NFA dealer. I have never had this happen but I suppose it could be a problem if the decedent were a sole proprietor dealer or private individual. However, machine gun sales are a private matter and I believe that most people would prefer to be discreet and not tell anyone else about the deal. Some rare MGs are owned by older guys who have a real probability of dying before a C&R transfer (1 year!) is complete. For this reason I have on occasion decide to transfer the gun quickly (1 month) to a dealer near me instead of going for the direct C&R transfer.
