  1. Yep, fakes are out there. As suggested if you use the 1-800 verification system described above, it will alert you as well. The verification system is great as it takes the burden off of a visual inspection. The scammers are getting too damn good at making real looking fakes.
  2. Hello all. In case you weren't aware, there is a number you can call to verify USPS Money Orders. It is fast and easy, and allows you to ship items same day if you want (Buyers love it). The number is 1-866-459-7822. It is all automated. Just type in a few key numbers off the MO and it verifies if it is a good one or not. See this link for more info: https://www.usps.com/shop/money-orders.htm However, as Don noted in his post last year (link below), this verification system has been experiencing issues for about a year now. For me and some others, it is not working for money orders exactly equal to $1,000. Anything under $1k and it will verify as it should; equal to $1k and it just says to call back as they are experiencing technical difficulties. So to avoid this you may want to request Buyers only send denominations less than $1k. Here is Don's post in another forum: http://www.sturmgewehr.com/forums/index.php?/topic/10755-usps-money-order-verification-system-not-working/ Hope this helps somebody. Tall
  3. USPS Money Order Verification System Not Working

    I am having the same exact issues, so this glitch is still going on. I plan to request future Buyers no longer send $1k denominations, make them all less than $1k if they want same day shipping. Good luck to us all. Thanks to Don for raising the issue...gives some comfort I am not the only one experiencing this weird error. Tall
  4. C&R m3 greasegun $23k

    Deal with confidence with Beau, he is good to go. I did a FTF deal with him and you can't do any better, great guy. GLWYT
  5. Google cache shows it was $30k shipped
  6. HK94 Unconverted on Form 1

    I thought you could ship any title 1 or 2 gun to a gunsmith anywhere in the USA for repairs, or allowed alterations. Your SBR stamp is your permission slip to shorten the barrel. I don't see how shipping your long gun SBR host across a state line matters in your case. Send it to TPM Outfitters or TSC Machine to get the work done and have it engraved. My apologies if I am mistaken. Good luck. Tall

    Very nice, Email sent
  8. ^this He can do now for all to see since he's messed up the first pic, and continues to mess up the model. Piece of paper with "Buddy H. rocks" on it will do!
  9. WTS: Sterling L2A3 (MK4), SN: 1 - Reduced $17K

    I dont think so, never heard of a Sten tube made into a Swedish K. However some Sten tubes were modified and built into psuedo-Sterlings known as "Stenlings". As far as Wilson goes, he made a regular Sten type tube, and also a Sterling/K type tube. The tubes with a s/n starting with an "L" are the Sterling/K specific tubes. These "L" s/n tubes could be made into a Sterling or a Swedish K, builders choice.
  10. WTS: Sterling L2A3 (MK4), SN: 1 - Reduced $17K

    My understanding is that Wilson did make Sterling specific tubes, denoted with a s/n beginning with "L", and they were built by many folks as either Sterlings or Swedish Ks. My virgin Wilson "L" tube was built into a K gun by John Andrewski a few years ago (fabulous work) and the original F3 from back in the 1980s lists what BoomDoc says....L2A3. Andrewski then added an additional description to his F3 saying it was assembled with a Swedish M-45 parts kit. Below are a few before and after pics.

  13. M11/9 SPF

  14. Stemple 76 45

    Also notice there is no City located by the IP address in the lower right corner of the original post. Usually the Sturm site detects the poster's IP location address and displays the city and state there as a double check against what the poster types in as his location. Interesting that his just says "United States". An IP address blocker was probably utilized.....yet another questionable sign.
  15. WTB: Factory Colt M16

  22. WTS/WTT: Lage Max-31 mk1 upper for M11/9

    SPF to Double Tap Firearms. Thanks everyone!
  23. Excellent condition Lage slow fire upper for the M11/9. I got this in a trade and it looks like it has had very little use, if any. No box or papers, just what you see in the pics. Tie-dye pillow stays with me.lol $700 shipped. USPS money order only. First public I'll take it gets it. Would consider trade ONLY for a Max-11 mk2 in similar like new condition. Thanks, Tall
  24. WTS/WTT: Lage Max-31 mk1 upper for M11/9

    Hello. Yes, it has all the parts need to function right now. You just remove your stock upper and drop this one in. It has a bolt in it and the buffer on the back end, all ready to go. This Lage upper is factory stock and as such all it has is the plastic molded hand guard, no bottom rail. See pic below. I do believe I have seen accessory rails installed on these mk1 uppers to allow for vertical grips, etc. Maybe someone else with direct experience can chime in and give a definitive answer. Thanks
