  1. I don't understand it?

    Ask for a picture of their money. That will show 'em. I agree 100% with you. Negotiation is acceptable but just wasting a guy's time is bullshit. -KristopherH
  2. Taking care of our own

    Mike Todd and R.L. are the guys I aspire to be like. Best regards to both of these damn good guys. -KristopherH
  3. Universal & Plainfield M2 Carbines

    Update...I pulled all the rounds and cleaned them up with some steel wool. Nine cartridges (out of 1,080) had varying degrees of pink corrosion. Of those nine, only two felt crusty. Probably half of the rounds had a grayish looking corrosion, not the green kind I am used to seeing. The price I paid for the Korean surplus was just slightly less than Prvi. Until and unless the Korean ammunition goes down in price, I'll probably go with Prvi next time. Prvi hasn't failed me yet in any of the firearms I've used it in. -Kristopher
  4. Universal & Plainfield M2 Carbines

    Most, if not all, of my Korean magazines are marked with a "UU" on the spine of the magazine. They also feel a little different from my other magazines. Lighter, maybe? The Korean ammo showed up a while ago. 1986 vintage. The rounds are a bit dirty but appear to be clear of any pink corrosion. Not sure when I'll go shooting, it's been pretty hot and dry the past couple of weeks. -Kristopher

    May you have many, many more years here on Sturm. Take it easy for a while, friend. -Kristopher
  6. Universal & Plainfield M2 Carbines

    Excellent. I've had pretty good results with Armscor, but my Carbines run best with Prvi. I've got some Korean surplus coming in tomorrow. Hope to try it out soon and see how it stacks up against the others. In Liberty, KristopherH
  7. Universal & Plainfield M2 Carbines

    A good start. My M2s love Prvi Partizan 110 grain FMJ loaded into Korean 30 round magazines. If the Korean magazines don't work for you, spend the coin and find a couple of "J" marked 30 rounders. They are Vietnam War era USGI magazines and they are very good. Might want to invest in a new recoil spring, too. The M2 can be a tricky machinegun to get running, but damn is it fun when it does run. In Liberty, KristopherH
  8. Looking to get a transferable Chinese AK... advice?

    A classic movie. I love the BAR action scenes.
  9. Looking to get a transferable Chinese AK... advice?

    Cheers, Mike. Over the years, you've offered a lot of great advice to the NFA community, including to me. In Liberty, KristopherH
  10. Looking to get a transferable Chinese AK... advice?

    I think you'll find that Sturm has a varied cast of characters, each with a unique style. The people in charge of this board seem to have given quite a bit of leeway here with regards to speech. I hope that such leeway continues in the future. That being said, I hope that all of us use some discretion and think about how our words may affect the freedom that we have been given here, and more importantly, how our words affect our fellow enthusiasts in the NFA community. ... I look at it this way: at the end of the day, you are either an American or you are not. If you have pledged your loyalty to this Great Nation, that's all that matters to me. It sounds to me like you are in the American camp, brother. In Liberty, KristopherH
  11. Shipping Ammo?

    UPS Ground with ORM-D markings on the outside box. I don't think you even need the ORM-D sticker, you can mark it yourself, as I have received ammunition shipments this way. Just my thoughts on the subject. -KristopherH
  12. Who do you use to ship firearms?

    This rule applies to all "concealable" firearms such as sub-machineguns, short barrel fireams, etc. If you can make the gun meet rifle specs, you (as a non-licensee) can ship it USPS. -Kristopher
  13. What where you doing today in 1986?

    Integrity: If you have it, nothing else matters. If you don't have it, nothing else matters. Very few things are worse than a shitbag FFL/SOT or a crooked NFA enthusiast, IMO. -Kristopher
  14. I need a lawyer - please read and recommend

    As always, Mike Todd gives excellent advice. I strongly encourage all NFA enthusiasts to request FOIA records on all machineguns they own. Even though most of the information is redacted, a copy of the original Form (1,2, whatever) is a good thing to have. It's nice to be able to say, "This machinegun, serial number xxxx, was registered on xx/xx/xxxx by ACME Firearms in Wherever, USA". When selling a machinegun, you should consider sending any FOIA records you have to the purchaser so they can be fully informed, too. The NFA community is great and we should fully support each other and help others as much as we can. In Liberty, KristopherH

    Bloody idiots at ATF! A Class 2 I know of has apparently made at least one Post-Sample FAL sear. He designed it to work in a (NFA exempt) sear-cut semi FAL (G-Series and the like). If only the idiots at ATF had allowed your registered sears... Such is life, I reckon. -KristopherH
