  1. Recommended dealer request

    Court costs for me would have far exceeded the value of the suppressor in question. Then there is the issue of locating the individual to serve him! What would I get if I actually went to court and got a judgment? I don't want his cardboard house under a bridge or log cabin in some unknown area of Alaska either. Stories like yours and others is why I ask about recommended dealers with a real storefront. Yes, bankruptcy can be a real issue. In my case, what could I strip from a Micro-Uzi and/or Mini-Uzi of value? Welded stock on a receiver with a registered bolt? Registered receiver? Hence my concern about getting a good dealer to hold my stuff for 4~12 months waiting on a form 4. And, THANK YOU Mike for your very valuable contributions to me in this thread!
  2. Recommended dealer request

    That's a big part of the reason I'm asking. I bought a suppressor from a local "kitchen table" dealer from Thompson Machine. During the transfer process (long form 4 times), the dealer closed shop and I never got what I paid for. Rumor had it he moved to Alaska (I was in Arizona at the time). Thankfully, that was only a few hundred dollars, not machine gun money. I'm all for supporting the local "little" guy or gal just starting out but, when we are talking about items that start in the ~$15K range or more, I won't risk it with an unknown quantity. Then there is the personal integrity and business ethics thing. I went to a local brick and mortar Class 3 to look at an in stock Integral 10/22. It was a brand new rifle but, I wondered why it was all scuffed up. When I handed it back to the dealer, I watched him 'throw' it on a couple of hooks that were up high on the pegboard, when it didn't lay perfectly upright, he picked up another rifle and started 'poking' it. When he thought he had it upright, he turned around and it fell upside down at which point his helper said he would go get the LADDER!
  3. Recommended dealer request

    I'm looking for a C3 to C3 out of state transfer to Form 4 to me in East Texas between Dallas and Texarkana or Shreveport, LA. I'm looking for a quality dealer that won't strip my MG, let friends abuse it, etc. Also, I'm not looking to bottom feed on the transfer fee either. I expect quality service and I expect to pay a reasonable fee for said 'good' service. Who are the good dealers to talk to? The Subguns.com recommended dealer list was not helpful, FWIW. TIA, Sid
  4. New FN249 "Semi" any news?

    I'm curious where you heard this. I talked to them directly about this and there was no issue with selling me a legal sear host.
  5. New FN249 "Semi" any news?

    A 240 would be nice! I'm guessing there is a lot more interest in the M249 so, it lead the way. Hopefully it is a commercial success for FN and spurs them on to release an M240.
