  1. Hi David, i just posted a WTS ad on the NFA board and notice there is an alert of some sort (red Triangle with an exclamation point inside it and whole post is shaded red. i have purchased a commercial account for posting privileges, can you advise what mistake i've made here or how I can remove the warning flag? 

    BTW - it's been several years since i have been an active board member so my post count shows as 0 now, my last postings and board donation were back in 2012 and were made under this username. 

    thanks for your help sir.

      Jared,

      We have a setting that requires a moderator to approve a first post by a new member on the NFA Board if posted within a few hours of purchasing a membership.  Its to help prevent scammers.  A moderator approved your post, and it is now visible.

      Thanks!

  2. Sam Pikula's AR-10 book available on Kindle

    I'm happy to see a scarce book reprinted. I went ahead and purchased the Kindle version. Optical character recognition (OCR) is a useful tool. I spent a couple of years OCR'ing a book after I helped the original author regain the rights to his book, and the revised edition was published last year. He did not have the original manuscript, which was written before computers were available, so OCR was the easiest way to regain it. However, proofreading after OCR'ing is highly recommended. I'm not sure Mr. Pikula read the first paragraph after he OCR'd the book. This could definitely be improved. That being said, I am glad he made the book available via Kindle. I just want folks to know they will find awkward translations and misspellings when they read the Kindle version. The following excerpt is shared as a preview of the book on Amazon, and is the first paragraph from the "preface" section, which is the first paragraph from the old book. It is the same in the full Kindle download. I share it as a limited book review. "Most firearms enthusiast’s know very little if anything about the ArmaLite AR-10 series of rifles. Few have even seen an AR-10 much less owned or fired one. This is unfortunate as the AR-10 was as much of a groundbreaking weapon as the Thompson Sub-Machine Gun, M-1 Gar and, or the 1898 Model Mauser Rifle. Until the AR-10, half of a rifle consisted of a dead tree, and the other half was made of steel on the verge of oxidizing. The AR-10 ions the first standard infantry rifle to be constructed using plastic instead of wood for the stocks, pistol grip, and handguards, and the first to use rust proof aircraft aluminum in the receivers." I look forward to reading the rest of the book, but when I saw the two errors in the first paragraph from the old part of the book, and others as I began to read it further, I realized the Kindle version of the book had not been effectively proofread.

  3. I believe this issue will be resolved shortly. I have been working between the buyer and seller to attempt to mediate. If this post disappears, it means that the issue is pending resolution, or has been resolved. David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com

    Posts stay on the board, which drives more traffic to the site. Mark them as sold when they sell. David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
  6. 2017 Sales on Sturmgewehr.com Low Overall

    The gun market in general is way down in sales since Trump was elected. Most firearm retailers have seen sales take a huge dip. It's an industry thing...folks are not as worried about losing their gun rights, and are spending less money on guns and accessories right now. David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com

      I'll take this one issue at a time.  I'm not sure why, but the 2 posts above were hidden from view by a moderator.  I have unhidden them.  As far as the photo posting issue, please try again.  If the photos will not post, please let me know what browser you are using.  If you are using Internet Explorer, you need to change browsers immediately, as it is no longer supported by Microsoft, and many web issues occur with it.  My suggestion is to use Firefox.

      Thanks,

      David

  8. ATTN: Corporal Members from Machinegunboards.com

    I get almost daily questions about why Corporal members can no longer post items for sale, so I'm replying to the thread to bring attention to it again... David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com

  11. Sturm Members with Current Rank of Corporal, If you were a member of Machinegunboards.com prior to 1/2/16, I want to thank you again for your support, which also helped Sturmgewehr.com. If you recall, back when we transitioned Sturm to the new format, we thanked our Machinegunboards.com members by transitioning their information to the new site, and gave them membership as a Corporal, which allowed free posting for a year. That year has turned into a "baker's dozen, so to speak, because it was supposed to end on 1/8/17. It's now 2/5/17, and the benefits with Corporal rank are changing. Current Corporals will retain their rank, however if they wish to post ads anywhere but the WTB Board, they will need to upgrade their memberships. Personal Site Memberships are available here: http://www.sturmgewehr.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/1-personal-site-subscriptions/ Commercial Site Memberships are available here: http://www.sturmgewehr.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/2-commercial-site-subscriptions/ We want to thank you again for your support, and hope that you have enjoyed your free year of access, and will upgrade your membership. Thanks Again! David & Andy Albert
  12. Hi David,

                  On what date this year 2017 can we start renewing our membership dues at Sturmgewehr.com 

    Thank you,

      Hi Rodney,

      Your current membership began on 4/14/16, and is good for a year.  You can renew at any time, however it will be best for you if you wait until it expires, so that you get your full year, because when you renew, the new year begins on the date of the new transaction.

      Just let me know if you have any questions.

      Thanks!

      David

  15. Hi Dave! Last weekend I picked up a copy of Notes On Auto Ordnance The Thompson Submachinegun Second Edition 1989 by Bannan and Hill.

    A friend brought it to my table at the gun show I was at. He wanted $100, no problem! I read through it today. Amazing how far spell check has brought us. On Amazon, there is one copy from 1975 being offered for $300!! Have you seen any copies for sale recently? Are people still interested in this book? Is it like the Cox book, that if you collect Thompson stuff, you have to have a copy of it?
