  1. Looking for a complete parts set or individual parts.
  2. already sold out?
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. WTS: HTA MP5S (MP5SD) Transferable Package $26k

    Actually no, it's because the suppressor tube is often welded to the receiver in these instances, so they allowed it to be one item since the tube is not readily removable from the receiver and the receiver is a registered MG, not because one trumps the other. It was a unique way of bypassing a second tax on guns that are really only one item anyhow since actual SD's don't really work without the can.
  11. Nothing new on Subguns

    Wow BL, If you're counting on Frank to step up and represent us as a group you may be in for disappointment. Subguns like many boards has been on a death spiral for a long time for a host of reasons. I don't see the new owner as an improvement and don't really understand what value it would be to his business model? He brokers guns for the most part for a fee and lists them on gunbroker. Doesn't take much for someone to list them for 3% commission and undercut his business? Knowledge and found both of those on subguns? I've seen some ugly stuff on there over the years including virus attacks from board mods. I still look a few times a year, but early on it was a daily thing. Most have moved on or have been moved out forcibly.
  12. ATF ruling 94-1 and SAS 12 help needed

    I would buy the one on GB in a heartbeat if I had an SOT currently. The potential 18 month wait is the only thing holding me back. I am over 18 months on a double transfer currently and it's annoying to say the least.
  13. BATFE, ..stupid is being kind

    ah, my post was way TMI
  14. MG C&R Transfer - Individual to C&R Collector

    Whether they are collected or not on some C+R's is how you interpret the instructions for a responsible person on a C+R app. It's rather vague and the implication is that you should include it, but it's not specifically spelled out either way. I have a correction letter received today on a form 4 that only asks only question 13 be filled out on the back, and not the rest since most all of it is done on the RP form. In the end filling it out can be a time saver. Last week I had a few more forms ask specifically about #13 be filled out and that's all. Done, scanned, emailed. Hours later they call back and ask for the whole page to be filled out contrary to the instructions stating 14-17 not be filled out on a form 4? The correct answer is do what you want and fill out whatever, but be prepared to wait on delays and see what they come back with, because nearly every transfer is getting kicked back for something? Correctly or not? They also added in a model that they made up since I am aware of the original 85 registration description.
  15. MG C&R Transfer - Individual to C&R Collector

    Fill everything out including the back page. A bit depends on how his C+R is titled, but in general a lot of zaminers don't know how to process some of the forms and they will request you fill it out whether or not it's completely necessary. In the long run it will save time. Just went through this last week and regardless of what the instructions say in my particular case (which is slightly different than your normal C+R) I was asked to fill it in anyhow. Many don't really know much about C+R licenses FFL's in general...... or the NFA for that matter. Generally speaking you can never send too much, but you can send too little which will delay the already lengthy process.
