  1. Minigun Repair

    Yes those "new" housings are not all they are cracked up to be and since only one company has the fixture, it was likely done with a hand drill. Congrats on getting it together since I know it's a lot more work than people think. Now you know why the older cut housings bring a premium.
  2. Value of DLO M240 transferable sideplate gun??

    That's what I recall Curtis telling me, and was the asking price. If the guy paid more.....well? Those guns had been for sale for over a decade. In 09 Kent had them in his flyer for 150K ea. / 290 a pair, and if I dig deep enough they were for sale well before that. I don't recall when they first appeared on the tables at the creek, but I do know I was a lot younger! Eventually the market caught up with the price.
  3. Value of DLO M240 transferable sideplate gun??

    IIRC Kent's pair sold for 175K each a couple years ago and they were not sideplate guns. None of that sells quickly other than the kit Doug put up, which sold I think within a day he told me. I snoozed.
  4. 40MM Grenade Launcher ammo

    How many are you looking for?
  5. Am I seeing things or are these two guns identical twins based on the photos?
  6. Question about reg. sear converted MP5

    The pushpin design is cheaper to make, less structurally sound, but does make HK version of the paddle mag release incorporated into the pin hole, which had been the big bonus before other paddle release designs were out. If you've ever clipped and pinned a housing, there is not that much material there in the PP area vs. the large slot of the shelf. All of this aside, on a push pin design all that holds the registered pack in is the selector axle and friction. Tying a rope to the trigger guard and dropping down a shaft likely results in death, since I don't think the steel or plastic on a picto housing would hold...… at least! I have a bunch of HK stuff and see no upside to PP conversions at all. Modification of packs to friction sears is rather easy on most packs. Note that the strongest of the series, 21E's have a shelf, course there is no need for a paddle mag release.
  7. Looking for a complete parts set or individual parts.
  8. already sold out?
  9. 25K is probably in the ball park. A lot of the value depends on where it's marked and how much of the original assembly needs to stay put? Getting rid of the current trigger situation is a $100 fix to go back to an original factory trigger group. Back in the day, trigger groups were not off the shelf items so guys had to get creative with conversions. All in all, it's a registered PP gun which is what sets the value. A few hundred in cosmetic repairs has little effect on that.
  10. Totally worth reading. I had heard about the lawsuit. Looks like Dan screwed the wrong guy. I'm loosing count on the number of times he's been sued? Is SAR even in existence anymore or did it go the way of machine gun news?
  11. RKI Wanted info on HK21

    A lot depends on how it was built? Reg. rec. or sear gun? FMP parts? Any E parts? German barrel? Trigger group? Any spare parts or barrels in the deal? Lots of variables to consider. You will make it a safe queen or be beaten to death! They are a bit harsh, but can be tamed on a lafette....of which I may have a spare.
  12. David Hogg/ antigun...

    They probably need to read this........ for the first time. From a post on the yahoo. BREAKING NEWS: Seventy-Two Killed Resisting Gun Confiscation In Massachusetts . National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw. Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement. Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue officers. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order. The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons. Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms. One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.” Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans. During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists. Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange. Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat. Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops. Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large. And this fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, April 20, 1775. History. Study it, or repeat it.
  13. The only shortcut is not having to submit the trust documents if the transfer is within, if I recall, 2 years. Course with transfers taking between 8 and 20+ months it's risky not to include it with every packet sent in or the period may lapse between your transfer approvals.......and of course they lose stuff. You only need one set (pair) of fingerprint cards if you send in several transfers in one packet generally speaking (this would be per trustee of course). Each responsible person form is specific to one firearm listed on it, so you'll have to do that for each firearm. Trust and entity transfers have become a rather large paperwork burden these days. HTH
  14. Pending FBI Background Check

    There may be some good news from the Trumpster on machine gun transfers. (shhhhh, I know everyone thinks they are illegal) More zaminers!
  15. Dan Shea-Stembridge Rental

    Years back there was a spreadsheet of the stembridge guns he posted on subguns. Not sure if the link is still around or not. I downloaded it a couple computers ago, but I'm sure someone still has it? It was out in the public domain, so it's around.
