  5. WTS: PreBanArms, Colt, Galil

    Please edit your ad so that it does not lead with the "I want to buy" statement. This is confusing to potential buyers, as it appears you are selling. You may post a WTB ad on the WTB board, or you could make it more intuitive by incorporating the general WTB statement into your signature line at the end of the ad. Thanks, David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
  6. andrew88, Please post photos of the item, and detail why your IP address is in Louisiana versus your stated location of Colorado. I'm sure there may be a good reasons for this, but you are a new member posting a very expensive item, and potential buyers will want to know. Thanks, David Albert

      Thanks!

      Ok thank you for the clarification for some reason I must have overlooked them thinking that they had been removed.

       

      Appreciate the explanation

  10. transferable m16

    Please post photos, or links to photos. You have the access to post photos directly on the site. The price of this item should drive a lot of buyer caution without photos, and further explanation/proof of the F3. That, and you are a newly registered seller. You will want to provide more information to any potential buyers who could legitimately be wary of this ad. Please post more information about the item for sale, its status, and your business. Thanks, David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
  11. Hi Dave! Chris Shambarger here, are you interested in a pair of like new barrels in 30 Mauser and a magazine marked 30 mauser, marked by BSA. The barrels are threaded for a Thompson. A gentleman I met from Facebook is selling them for a widow of a deceased former class 3 dealer

    1. David Albert

      David Albert

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks, but I'm not interested.  I would suggest posting them on the Machinegunboards.com Thompson board, and mention that you ran it by me before you posted the items for sale.

      I appreciate you offering them to me.

  12. Is the subguns boards down

    Toad, R.L. et al, Thank you for your kind words, and also your honest opinions. Toad...Andy and I miss you, too. The old Astrohall shows were great, as were the various Austin and E. TX shoots. It's been a long time! As many say, "Those were the good old days!" I'll just say that with a change from an anonymous posting system (no login), which both Subguns and Sturm used to have, that some folks just don't like logging in to comment. That's fine, but we had to make the change. The old software was no longer supported, and presented too much risk. I'm open to making any changes to the discussion boards that may be beneficial to the site. Sturm has always focused on the market board side of things, and the discussion boards have been secondary. Subguns has been the opposite. Their discussion boards thrived, and market boards were secondary. We'll see how it all turns out. I'd like to see both entities remain successful. If you really like serious, collector discussion, I suggest also giving Machinegunboards.com a try. Thanks! David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
  13. Less than ethical seller/ member list?

    The discussion boards are the correct place to discuss this. Anyone here can see both sides of the story, if both sides participate, as they are doing here. Since Sturm is a bulletin board where ads are posted, but any transactions are conducted outside of the site, a true feedback mechanism is not really feasible. The discussion boards can be used to provide specific feedback in a factual manner. No one should flame a seller in follow-up posts to their ads on this site. I would potentially be interested in a recommended dealer's list, but the truth is, I just don't have the time to manage such an effort currently. Though I am open to ideas... Here are some things I would suggest considering when making a high dollar firearm purchase. These can all be agreed upon prior to shipment. Is the seller insured throughout the entire transaction to the customer - In other words, if there is a problem in shipment, does the seller own the issue? If a customer asks a dealer to ship on the customer's account for preference of carrier, or cost, does the customer own the transaction when the package is handed off to the carrier by the dealer? What type of box will be used for shipping? How is the firearm packaged inside the box? How is the box sealed? These are things I would consider, among others, if a recommended dealer list were established. It would be an extremely high bar that almost all dealers would not meet, in my opinion. For that reason, it is good to know the answers to the questions above, among other questions, in case there is a problem. David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
  14. I realized I had not updated this list since late 2017. I just updated it. Thanks! David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
  15. Is the subguns boards down

    Right now, if you go to Subguns, you get this... I wish Frank the best, and hope the Subguns downtime is temporary. The following is speculative on my part, but I do know a bit about how Subguns' website runs. For a few years, around the turn of the century, we hosted it on our server, and the URL used to redirect you to our Biggerhammer site. Those who remember way back, there was a period of time when if you typed in 'Subguns.com" it would automatically redirect you to "subguns.biggerhammer.net." Sturm and Subguns were run on the same type of software, circa 1999. That software stopped having any support after about 2002. I believe that Subguns had some custom updates made to it after that, but the discussion forum still ran on what is essentially 1990's software until it was taken down recently. Perhaps they have figured out a way to migrate any archived content. That would be awesome, but I also know that would be difficult to translate into a new format, and there are no member logins, so assigning any posts to existing members on another platform would be at least a partially manual process. Think about how you typed in your name every time you logged onto Subguns, or the old Sturm. There were no member accounts. Think 1990's...As such, the software today could be easily corrupted, damaged unintentionally, or potentially messed with. That was the main reason we made the decision to go to the new forum software for Sturm in 2016. That, and we wanted regular support, instead of selling t-shirts and other efforts that never fully funded the site, and pulled many monthly dollars from my wallet for over 12 years. We'll see what happens. Maybe they will be down for a couple of weeks, and then return to service. There's a long history of behind the scenes cooperation between the two sites, the extent of which is really only known or acknowledged by the principle folks who used to be involved. No Subguns mods are fully aware of what I'm talking about. Frank has also been very friendly to Sturm, and I hope that he works through any IT issues that may be contributing to the current Subguns downtime. In the meantime, please feel free to post on the discussion boards here, or if you are a serious collector, post on Machinegunboards.com. David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
