  1. I guess you want me to believe it was double boxed when you took it to FedEx, in new cardboard boxes as well?
  2. I don't plan to argue the point any further. I cannot believe that any reasonable person would have shipped an item of this value, in this manner, and expected any different outcome. I do recall "reasonable care" as being a requirement of a seller. Thirty plus years in this biz and I have never seen such blatant negligence.
  3. "Reasonable care" standard was not met with packaging. Even the Seller knows and admits this.
  4. So you are not at fault for your packaging?!!!! Fact is that I've seen kid's toys sold on Ebay packaged better! You admit as a direct quote "of course the suppressor was banging around in the box". Did it even occur to you that maybe the responsible thing to do would be to pack it where this would not be an issue? Did I need to send you packing materials and instructions on how to pack it as well????? Yes, the soon to be felon at FedEx taped the box up after the contents fell out, but didn't put the machine gun back in before doing so. He did a better taping job than you did originally. You reused a beat up single wall cardboard box to ship a $10K machine gun and didn't secure the contents from shifting around in the box. If you didn't want to do the deal at the agreed price you should have said so. Five extra minutes packing and a couple of dollars in bubble wrap could have prevented this whole issue. But you got your money, that's all that matters, right? I am a liar? Really? Yes it was insured, but FedEx honoring a claim on a machine gun is a pipe dream!
  5. My point exactly. Why is there not a forum where members can discuss their experiences, good or bad? Seems to me that bad actors take advantage of others where the platform relies only on the "honor system".
  6. Recently had an issue with a lost in shipping/ stolen machine gun I purchased from a Sturmgewehr Member. Seller would only ship by USPS Priority so I insisted on providing prepaid FedEx Over Night shipping label, at my expense, for shipment. $10K machine gun was shipped in cheap worn out, "dog eared" single layer card board box and poorly packaged, with single strip of clear packing tape on either end. Gun fell out of box and was lost/ stolen in shipping. Seller's only response is that my issue is with FedEx and that he bears no responsibility. I DISAGREE! Any way to warn other Members who may end up in same situation would be helpful. After 30 plus years in the business, I've learned that the majority of my fellow dealers are honest and do the right thing. This is my first experience with a dealer who took the money, and essentially admitted he could give a flip about me getting the gun. There needs to be some accountability for sellers on this site who DON'T play nice with others or "do the right thing"!

    Unless that is a sticker or something stuck on the left side of the mag well, its a grind mark, and it is.

    PLEASE RESPOND TO THE P.M. I SENT YOU. I DO NOT HAVE YOUR EMAIL AND APPARENTLY THE PHONE NUMBER I HAVE FOR YOU IS YOUR BUSINESS LAND LINE.
  10. The biggest collectors of transferable machine guns are the ATF, FBI, ( just to name just two Fed agencies with confiscatory powers) and local Law Enforcement. Guns that the Feds seize don't regularly come back into circulation. 179K in current circulation? Seriously doubt that!
