  1. WTS: 1918 Marlin Bar; excellent

    because he's over 65 LOL!
  2. WTB Registered Ruger 10/22 Receiver

    Have one and access to two more. PM me with what you are looking to spend? Or trade?
  3. Purchase Sole Proprietor - pre may samples

    Not generally in a sole proprietorship since it is not a separate entity like a partnership or corp. The proprietor is the "company" and you being a different proprietor, assets would need to "transfer" to directly to you, vs. a company type setup where the company exists separately regardless of who actually owns it. A pre-may sample can only transfer to an SOT,
  4. WTB Lahti L39 Barrel

    I spent 5 years on that project. I own all the tooling, etc. The minimum order qty is 5 and the price is 3K finished at last go around (not sure that's current). These are hot blued and ready to screw in. Match grade rifling, much nicer than originals. In order to screw it in correctly I redo the threads in the receiver and you can hand screw the barrel in until the last 5 turns and then use the tool in the kit to go the rest of the way. No 5' breaker bars needed!
  5. Well, unfortunately have you driven around much lately? Ads are regional, and in your region what you see in advertising is a reflection of the demographics of your area. No one runs ads tailored to sell the three of you in the DC metro area product. I don't see those same ads where I live. As I see it there are two types of law, man made law and natural law. As a society.....not me or obviously you either, it's no longer assumed that natural law comes first and man made law should coincide, not contradict natural law. Men are no longer men and two women can now somehow create a child......effectively violating natural law? People step off the curb into moving traffic assuming white paint (man made law) will bring a large vehicle to a quick stop? Frankly I am tired of buying bumpers in bulk lots since I assumed they would eventually learn? I now have learned liberals have no interest in learning and the smarter ones send the others off the curb first, but the few smart ones do seem to know I can't afford an endless supply of bumpers and car washes and I've learned to travel a different path. Most of the guys like me have now been trained to stop at the paint. You have to either start buying bumpers or like many of us, we've moved on and travel a different path since the zombie army seems destined to grow. Most of us here like the Trumpster....he's a guy that can afford a LOT of bumpers! The other night it looked like chuck and nancy got hit in the crosswalk, then backed up and run over again. Fences follow natural law, which is why all the smart liberals have them and the other liberals are on the outside looking in, but like the cow looking thru the barbed wire they aren't smart enough to know which side of the fence they are on?
  6. WTS Belt-Fed MK46 M249 $7850 (only one left)

    Well, to follow up I bought one on the secondary market so I have actual experience with the parts (since I've taken it down several times and swapped many parts) and most are USGI/ FN other than the receiver and oprod group. The receiver has some, what I'd call minor fitting issues and missing an attachment for tripod mounting that FN 249's have. I ordered some parts from them directly and did eventually receive them. Delivery was if I recall near a month for what was supposed to be an "in stock" part. A second order took them around a week to ship (another in stock part). I don't recall ever getting a phone response after leaving messages (no one ever answered the phone during business hours) . Fortunately I am now done ordering parts from them. All my deliveries from Ares were shipped more promptly than these and they've been ridiculed for nearly 15 years for their poor service....that I have apparently not been subjected to, so I'd describe it as "relative and situational". Having said all of that I would not change a thing in my original post. Portions which I speculated on came to fruition. I type these posts and don't frequently proofread, so errors are more than likely, but actually assumed. Is this post "less" angry? I am not a particularly emotional person either way, but people often project their emotions into posts on the internet, I think looking for more drama than actually exists. I see it so often I could cry....LOL. I own several registered financial issues here, but I require value for my purchases regardless of cost. I don't have any beefs with MGA or you. I pretty much knew what I was getting before I got it and for what it is, and what I paid, I'm all good. Sounds like you are too? Had I dumped in 10K I'd be less happy, but that would have been my choice and to me the value is not 10K currently. Are they an easy target, well since they don't communicate and I haven't seen any discussion about their product for a long time, maybe? I don't get out much so I maybe have missed it? I had more comm. with Eric Grimes and he was much more available (less so now I'm told) to answer questions even if he was making up some of the answers, which I suspected after speaking with him on several occasions. Nice guy though. 1/12/19 Update. I installed the gen 4 oprod setup today. Well worth the money, makes the gun much more used friendly, removes the possibility of bolt bounce (which I don't think FN does). I'd say it's a 60% upgrade of the gun as a whole. Modified the original gen 3 bolt to match the new specs and am using that putting aside the new bolt that came with it. Utilization of the HK trigger packs without the big hammer and all HK parts is a major plus IMO. The carrier setup is professionally machined, finished, and assembled and likely significantly more durable than the gen 3 setup which was kind of rough.
  7. sold - Delete

    Ken, I will send him a text to remind him.
  8. Hassan Whiteside stolen M16

    Just goes to show how fast a Rolls depreciates.....apparently worth less than an M16?
  9. M2HB 50cal transferable machine gun

    I know of some history on the gun and what you see is what you get. It is C+R as is everything now that was amnesty registered in 68' (give or take how they entered them from the application date or approval date?) The IRS number tells us this. An FOIA on this gun won't really disclose any more than what you see in the pictures and what the seller provided. This gun sat in collection for many moons with, I believe the original registrant, until it transferred relatively recently. HTH
  10. With the seller's permission, I have a nice AA sight in the wooden box for $700 and a buyer would have a complete package.
  11. Kavanaugh is burying this...

    To now include using a mentally ill scizoaffective woman in their quest to manipulate the outcome of a supreme court nomination. How much further can this go?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 40MM Grenade Launcher ammo

    How many are you looking for?
  16. Am I seeing things or are these two guns identical twins based on the photos?
  17. 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.
  18. Looking for a complete parts set or individual parts.
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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
