  1. I haven't ordered yet, but it's what I've decided on unless someone convinces me otherwise (customization recommendations are most welcome). The ArmaKnox 3/16" AR500 Liner comes standard with their Legend line. There is an option to add Carbon Steel Liners, but wouldn't that be overkill? Seems like the internal real estate would be more beneficial. Stainless Steel 1/2" body (standard) Stainless Steel 10 Gauge Liner (standard) ArmaKnox 3/16″ AR500 Liner (standard) 10 guage Carbon Steel Liner (up to 2 layers maximum) Here's the configuration I favor:
  2. All 24 pre-41F forms were approved by the ATF as submitted without any changes required. The original agent that was aware of these modernized Colt transferables was out of office at the time that my file was being reviewed and the examiner assigned was mighty thorough with her investigation, just as I had requested in my included Attention Examiner letter. I have email confirmation from the examiner that the high resolution printed pictures & burned disc pertaining to this very Colt M4 Commando Enhanced, manufactured in 1998, were received to assist in the investigation, "We see an attached letter with a CD of photos attached. Also, noticed the folders have those same photos enclosed." So now, in addition to the special agent that assured me of this Colt M4 Commando Enhanced's legitimacy as a transferable and guided me through the completion of it's form 4, I also have email records with the examiner at the ATF stating that they verified the records with Colt directly, "I have reached out to Colt and am just awaiting a response from them on the proper model designation to ensure we have that 100%. Often they designate “M4” as the model and the following content just being additional variant info." After a 360 day wait, the approved form 4 indeed matches this Colt transferable machine gun exactly/perfectly/correctly, and I have absolute confidence & confirmation that this transfer did not simply slip through the system: I realize that there will always be some non-owner skeptics that will never admit that a Colt transferable rarer than a standard M16A2 could legally exist and will stubbornly ignore all support/confirmations/blessings that the ATF provides to the contrary. This is the same illogical and yet familiar denial that some non-owners have for machine guns in general, by condemning them as overpriced toys that aren't worth more than their parts. Nevertheless, here's further proof that such exotic Colts do exist as perfectly legal transferables and in a comparable price range as the 1-off Colt M4 Commando Enhanced once had. This one is limited to only 12 in the registry! -source: And here's your chance to get an M16A2 Enhanced 4-position H-BAR @ $65k asking (verified with various ATF agents to be somewhere between 8 to 12 Enhanced Colts in the registry): For a real safe, I decided on the Fort Knox Legend with distressed finish. It has that cool factor I desire + top tier security (stainless steel requires a plasma cutter to breach @ 1" per minute speed, not taking into account further layers/liners):
  3. I'm surprised this Norrell 10/22 pack lasted as long as it did at this price. Grats to the buyer! You did very well.
  4. confirmed to be his active email. He responded within 1 day from this email to my request.
  5. Unlike his other emails posted on the net, is the only one I've found that didn't bounce yet, but I can't confirm if he still checks it until I get a response. I suppose I could cc thru to increase the odds... heh Personally, I've used the same emails and phone #s for nearly 20 years. Seems quite counterproductive to EVER change your business contact info, unless of course your business model is to receive less business.
  6. In case someone else was looking too, source:
  7. I have a new project to send his way and my email bounced saying his address no longer exists. PM would be best.
  8. Norrell 10/22 trigger pack price?

    Wow, I'm shocked that the listing lasted nearly an hour, but it was early morning, 6 AM for Pacific Time. Congratulations on a lucrative flip!
  9. *next in line* If Chester doesn't follow thru or changes mind then I'll buy it.
  10. You read my mind, next on the menu is indeed a dedicated gun safe. Thanks for your suggestion, that TL30x6 is clearly at the top for intrusion resistance, but I'm leaning towards something from Browning. I like how everything is rubberized and floor/ceiling/walls are carpeted. From what I'm seeing, Browning's interior protection ranks among the top for pampering a gun collection, and that's a top priority of mine in regards to gun protection. It doesn't need to be a 2 ton+ safe with ballistic armor, because I also have a watch dog, security system (windows/doors/motion), security cameras at our cove's entrance, a tall brick wall surrounding/enclosing our well lit cove, and the subdivision we are within includes a paid security patrol. I'm more concerned about when the unsustainable entitlement programs end and Memphis (Detroit #2) becomes a ground zero, will wish this house had bullet proof glass w/ The Purge style reinforcements. Anywho, this won't be the heaviest or thickest, and far from the most expensive, but it seems like the the perfect solution internally for a gun collection: However, since their Black Label Tactical Mark IV safe was released over 3 years ago (and they have been releasing new models in 3 year intervals), I'm going to wait to see what their next generation (Mark V?) is like. Plenty of time to decide on a safe, at least 6 more months before any form 4 approvals. Runner ups: And something I ran across that was cool as hell in carbon fiber, but totally impractical and not a consideration:
  11. PayPal payment sent on June 20, 2016. Dealer submitted form 3 to BATFE on June 20, 2016. Dealer shipped the M4 Commando Enhanced by FedEx on August, 19th, 2016, see tracking. I notice that another form 3 cleared a day faster, was from Frank Goepfert of Midwest Tactical for a Norrell 10/22 trigger pack. Dealer submitted form 3 to BATFE on May 15th, 2016. Dealer shipped July 13th, 2016, see tracking. From what I've read, form 4s take just as long from individual to individual as it does for individual to dealer, and those are averaging 6+ months now. I'm in the same boat as you with NFA items that are transferring by form 4s to my dealer and likely have another month or two remaining before approval. One of which was submitted early March and just received a correction request letter from the ATF this week (so approximately 30 days remaining on that one), so right at 6 months.
  12. I can vouch for Trey (caf82313) being a legitimate collector/seller. He sold an HK sear manufactured by S&H last year on gunbroker, while I wasn't the buyer for that trigger pack we did do business for LEO marked mags that went thru smoothly/flawlessly (as recorded in our past HKpro feedback). I've also spoken to him on the phone and by email countless times as he's guided/mentored me thru the ropes in learning this machine gun hobby. He's even hosted a machine gun shoot for fellow HKPro members; this thread says it all:
  13. The M4 Commando Enhanced cleared transfer by form 3, was NOT reclassified as a post-sample, and arrived this week! The seller triple boxed, and yet my dealer was surprised that it wasn't wrapped in a quilt, lol. No live fire videos to provide at this time, but here's some pics taken today while visiting my local SOT.
  14. Photos of the machine guns were printed on photo paper at Walgreen's. CD that I included has the original resolution digital files, though I highly doubt that the NFA branch can access the CD since their puters are likely still using Win 3.1 w/ 5.25" floppy drives. Though I do welcome any delay my efforts bring, since there are still forms that haven't cleared to my local SOT yet. Hoping the ATF doesn't start processing my forms that were submitted on July 12th until half a year from now, by then everything would have cleared to my local SOT you see. @Marshal: That's an interesting solution, creating new trusts for each NFA purchase under 41F for the intent of selling a trustee slot or sole trustee rights. I like that. Would be a tad complicated as I'd have to remember which items go with which trust, but its an option to consider. Plenty of time to decide since any purchases would require months before a form cleared to my SOT, and I'll no longer require my SOT to file prematurely since there's not that impending 41F deadline to meet anymore. Ironically, transferring to a newly created post-41F gun trust was the ONLY poll option that no one voted for on my thread over at HKpro (though this is a private thread hidden in the premium content, so the sample pool is heavily restricted). As seen here: I visited my local SOT today since much has cleared by now. The primo toy, the controversial transferable M4 Commando Enhanced, cleared transfer by form 3, was NOT reclassified as a post-sample, and arrived this week!
  15. My gun trust is from Silencer Shop: I have no trustees on my gun trust yet, so at least I wouldn't have to trouble anyone yet. So I didn't buy everything I wanted before 41F and I have the itch to buy again. However, everything I have is under my gun trust and all items were secured before 41F. What happens if I transfer a new NFA item to my existing pre-41F trust? Does that negate any advantages I had of skipping the photos and fingerprints? Would it be as if all of my pre-41F items are now subjugated under the new 41F regulations, and the ATF will attach my prints and photos to my file/trust? If so, would there be any benefits to transferring items to myself as an individual instead of to my existing pre-41F gun trust? Perhaps filing new items as an individual would keep the two records separate (my trust and myself) and only having 41F records (photos + fingerprints) on myself for post 41F items? My understanding is that CLEO notifications are mandatory under both paths. And what's with this 2 year thing. Do we have to send in new photos and fingerprints every 2 year to the ATF indefinitely, or only when we are buying new NFA items? Anything else that I may be forgetting?
