  1. Guide Lamp, M3A1, Keeper

    Why is the barrel so short? I've never seen an M3 with this short a barrel.
  2. Need value on unique M2 carbines

    Thanks for that info, good to know. FWIW, I have a couple of ammo cans of .30 Carbine that came from the 70's that I KNOW is original, b/c my friend had it left over from his Father's store that closed way back when, the ammo has been stored all this time and is the real deal. I've come up on some of the cheap 30 round mags and agree fully with your assessment of them. I've loved the M-1 Carbines ever since I was a boy playing Army after watching the war movies from the 50's and 60's. I bought one from Sears in around '66 or so, when I was only 17.
  3. Need value on unique M2 carbines

    Thanks for the additional info. Are you a candidate for this gun? I'm guessing(again) that the number of Carbine fans is small when it comes to the full auto versions.
  4. Need value on unique M2 carbines

    I'm not very well versed on the enforcer series, except I know all the commercial M2's use lots of non-military parts so they don't interchange. Is the trigger housing military? I thought not. Even so, I guess a registered trigger housing would bring more than the lever.
  5. Need value on unique M2 carbines

    I don't know, I haven't seen the Form 4's yet, the owner is still digging for them. Thanks for the help.
  6. Need value on unique M2 carbines

    I'm trying to determine the value of a couple of rather unique M2 Carbines for a friend, and hope to broker them if he's open to offers. He has a Plainfield "Enforcer" pistol type carbine, pistol grip but no butt stock and about a 10" barrel. I haven't been able to find any listed anywhere so I have no idea of its worth. I know few military parts will interchange but the gun is a good shooter and in good shape. He also has a US Postal Meter M2 conversion, all military parts but the receiver, barrel, band and most other parts that "show" are chrome plated. The plating has chipped off the barrel in a couple of places and the receiver shows some evidence of pitting before the plating was applied. Again, nothing out there similar, so what is the collective opinion?
  7. Value of Furr Arms Gatling Gun

    Yep, it's exactly like the one I got. After discussions with the heirs I ended up buying it myself, and I'm having a couple of minor items repaired to original specs before firing it. I called Mr. Furr and had a nice discussion with him about the guns he built, fascinating stuff. He's retired now but he is sons each operate a machine shop in Orem, no gun mfg. anymore though. His country of the total number they made was 125.
  8. Value of Furr Arms Gatling Gun

    Thanks, Trent. I've informed her of your interest, she is talking with her Mom and sister about what to do, we'll get in touch with you soon I hope.
  9. I was recently contacted by the daughter of a good friend of mine, now deceased, about selling one of her Dad's guns. We were old shooting/reloading buddies and after he died the mother and two daughters moved far away from here, but I had thought all his guns were already disposed of. She has a Furr Arms 1/3 scale replica of a Colt Gatling Gun brass and steel in .22 short. The gun appears to be complete on the two wagon wheel carriage, and from the pictures she sent it is in excellent condition and a beautiful piece of work. I've tried to find some for sale but not much recent comes up, I"ve seen for sale prices ranging from $4000 up to about $12000. Anybody have an idea of its true worth?
  10. What are Post-86 sample Colt 9mm M16's going for now? I don't find any for sale (at least my searches haven't turned up any current ones) and I have a PD wanting to unload a few. Thanks in advance.
  11. WTB: M16 lower

    I have a friend in Ohio wishing to build an M16 from a registered lower, manufacture and condition not that important. It will simplify things greatly if an Ohio dealer has one to sell, please let me know if you qualify and I'll put you in touch. Not interested in a complete gun, just a registered lower, imperfections permissible as he is a competent machinist and can repair/modify for his needs. Thanks.
  12. Selling some of my collection

    If you'll send me a message to bmitch1948@gmail.com I'll reply with pics. Thanks.
  13. Selling some of my collection

    M2 is sold and delivered, thanks for looking.
  14. Selling some of my collection

    Be happy to, but I don't have any right now, I"ll have to take some and send them to you. May be Sunday before I can get them done and sent. The following guns are SOLD pending transfer of funds: MP40 STEN M2 Carbine M3 Grease Gun Also, the HK33 is NOT a transferrable weapon, I was mistaken and upon inspecting the paperwork have discovered it is a Pre-86 dealer sample, so the price is not valid. Sorry for any inconvenience it has caused.
