  1. WTS Springfield Armory M14 M1a

    I am currently talking to a member here who says he has a possible lead on an H&R M14. I would like to see how that plays out first.
  2. WTS Springfield Armory M14 M1a

    I’m making some calls.
  3. WTS Springfield Armory M14 M1a

    Is the gun in Indianapolis? I assume it is still available? If it is, I’ll see if I can get someone I trust to X-ray it for me.
  4. WTS Springfield Armory M14 M1a

    As much as this gun irks me as a collector, I may be interested. Is this gun uncut? Do you have an X-ray or magnaflux report? I’m looking to build an M21 to play with, so I won’t be interested in the accessories.
  5. WTS: M240 Lima Barrel $1000

    Is this still available?
  6. Looking to get my first beltfed, any advice is welcome…

    Here is what I would consider when looking to buy a belt fed 1. Budget. A belt fed is not only expensive to acquire, but also expensive to operate. Parts are expensive and ammo is very expensive, especially, if you want to shoot it to your hearts content. 308 or any medium caliber linked gun consumes ammo much faster than a magazine fed gun. 2. Ease of liquidation. If #1 above becomes a problem, your gun is just a unsatisfying paperweight or safe queen, or you juts need the money, certain belt feds are easier to liquidate than others. An MM HK belt fed will lose some value, although the sear may appreciate in value. The FN 249 semi will tank in value and will be hard to sell. A 1919 and M60 will be very easy to sell, as long as you don’t ask rediculously inflated prices, like some of the jokers who sell for 20% above market because they’re hoping to find a stupid buyer. If you have the budget, hunt and acquire an M60. The M60 has many things going for it, nowadays. 308 ball is cheap, especially if you reload or find the Malaysian or SA surplus stuff. Parts nowadays are plentiful because D.O/USOrd churn out parts; at one time, M60 parts were rare. Upgrades are available. The gun still looks modern and cool, thanks to the E6 evolution (can’t say that about a 1917). The M60 is very versatile because it can be both a GPMG and it can be a light machine gun. You’ll have a much easier time transporting an M60 to the range than a beefier gun. Belt feds are just awesome.
  7. WTB FN M249 saw complete operating group

    What do those parts go for? I’m curious. I hoard 249 parts.
  8. WTB: M240 Transferable Right Side Plate

    What are these other sources? MACs built into 240s?
  9. WTB Group Industries AR16/M16

    So I tried calling this place First, their phone number is not on their website. The price is not on their website, which is usually a bad sign, in my experience. Then when I call I get hung up on. So I call back. I get a salesperson and the guy asks me, sir you know this is a machine gun? Well, I did refer to it specifically as the Group Industries AR lower. Then he puts me on hold and tells me, sir, the Class 3 manager is out for the day. The salesperson who answered the phone has no clue as to the price. I guess they're not really trying to sell it. Lol. I'll try again tomorrow.
  10. WTB Group Industries AR16/M16

    Anyone have a Group Industries registered lower for sale? I will need to examine it in person and the Form 4. I will report scammers to the authorities. I'm a serious buyer.
  11. Auctions always amaze me (RIA May Auction)

    I don't subscribe to the 'caught up in the moment' theory. Its more likely that the gun is available for inspection and that the buyer is assured that the sale is legitimate. Buyers will pay a premium in such circumstances. These are impressive results.
  12. NFA Dealer Screw up Question Steyr AUG

    Does Pete Athens still sell all the auto AUG components? At one time he had pretty much everything needed.
  13. NFA Dealer Screw up Question Steyr AUG

    Name the dealer. Some of us can already guess. This dealer probably didn't know the difference.
  14. What NFA crops are you planting this year?

    In 2017, I'm going after the lesser known stuff. For starters, I need a factory pre-68 transferable MP5. How many exist? Also I've been looking for another transferable machine pistol.
