  1. 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.
  2. Some dealers have been opportunistic, passing off a premay sample as a Transferable. Because of the dealers prior documented knowledge of the gun it would be easy for any good lawyer to prove fraud.
  3. Don't shoot a hole in the boat!

    To clarify. Montanans hate gophers and love to shoot them. Thus the love-hate relationship. I have had more than one rancher offer lunch and ammo if I stopped by for the afternoon. And I believe there are absolutely no restrictions against any kind of weapon or DD against varmints like gophers, coyotes, etc, Bring out the belt fed.
  4. Don't shoot a hole in the boat!

    Ah, a Montana thread, with gophers. I left the state years ago and occasionally have to explain the love-hate affair Montanans have with the critters, Folk in Michigan eat squirrels and tend to think is a sin not to eat gophers, especially when I say that one hunt can result in +100 expired gophers..
  5. Are you willing to look the seller (executor?) in the eye and say that the amount offered or paid is 50% of the gun's value? (or 60% or whatever?) For higher end items that might leave a bad taste. If my widowed aunt Betty needed to unload 30-40 rare guns I would have her stay clear of folks offering such low percentages. Instead I would direct her to a gun dealer who would list them nationwide and take a flat fee or cut. I wager the cut would NOT be 50%.
  6. WTB AI AR10 parts

    Bart, you will discover that AR10 collectors will not sell parts and this would be true in Holland and in the US. This is because these folk spend all sorts of effort turning money into parts and selling parts would be backward. You will have luck with collectors if you are able to trade parts. Keep looking because a sub 1000 euro AR10 is sold in Holland every now and then. Also, be aware that the bolt head is a controlled part in Holland. It will not be a simple matter to have one imported legally. Even parting out a rifle must involve a dealer so that the parts can be recorded.
  7. WTB AI AR10 parts

    I have some bad news for you. Expect to pay at least $400 for the AR10 lower parts, and $400-$500 for a nice Portuguese bolt carrier group. And also expect it to take many months to find a seller of those parts. Now I have some good news. Since you are in Holland you will be able to buy an entire Portuguese AR10 for less than 1000 euros. That cheap gun will have ugly furniture and a barrel that is best used as a tent stake. So you buy the 1000 euro gun and take from it the parts that you need. You will likely be able to sell (to me or another yank) the remaining parts to recoup all of your initial investment.
  8. WTB Federal Laboratories Collectibles

    Someone bought the case within 24 hours of the above post.
  9. WTB Federal Laboratories Collectibles

    Fleabay has listed a Fed Labs gas gun case for many months now. Overpriced? Overlooked? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Federal-GAS-GUN-201-Z-carry-CASE-Storage-BOX/153460985431
  10. AR-15 Lower not a receiver?

    It is curious that the Hollywood and early Dutch AR10 MG's were serialized on the lower and only the later Dutch guns (Portuguese Model) were serialized only on the upper. I think it is because the lowers tended to crack (fail) more often than the uppers. The first few dozen Costa Mesa Armalite AR18 MG's were serialized on the upper. The first hundred Howa Armalite AR18 MG's were also serialized on the upper. But those Howa's were converted at the factory into semi-autos. I recall the AR18 design had the sear hang from the upper with the hammer and trigger junk in the lower.
  11. It is likely that the thief left fingerprints on the tape that he or she applied.
  12. BOI - old subguns

    Franks machine gun sales site (gunspot) can now be surfed without having to register or enter a password. The message board still requires a login. That is one club I will not be joining any time soon.
  13. BOI - old subguns

    Frank can not be that stupid - must be a mistake. The way gunspot is setup now you must log in to see details on any item for sale. Who does that?
  14. Do you have one in .25ACP ?
