  1. What good is I'll gotten gains when your burning in hell for it! I simply have a hard time buying from old people as I pay too much because I don't want people to think bad of me and I just plain feel bad for the elderly. Friend of mine died about 2 yrs ago, he had about 900 guns . Sold off alot and was down to 58 guns when he was at death's door. I tried and tried to get him to let me take them and get top dollar for his wife, he always said some day. Well , some day never came, . Local dealer swooped in and bought all the guns and ammo for litterally next to nothing. Then dealer is laughing to me how cheap he got everything. Some of the guns he made over 1000.00 on. How can you rob a widow? I've actually dispersed a collection for a widow before. Didn't make a single penny on it, nor would I. Character is very hard to find today.
  2. Recommended dealer request

    This has been going on for yrs. I'm a class 2 manufacturer in Wisconsin. Wish I could help. When I transfer something in, the only time I touch it is to verify the serial number, then have the customer inspect it, then it gets put away until approved. Friend of mine bought a 1919 from Bob Landis many yrs ago. He seen the gun in person, it was mint condition. Landis even told him to take what parts he could so it wouldn't get fired, but he trusted the dealer in Wisconsin. Needless to say, when the gun was approved, mind you back then it took only about 45 days, the gun was completely shot out! The dealer said Landis must have switched parts! Riiiggghtt! That dealer is out of business, wonder why. Unfortunately it is hard to find a reputable dealer. Good luck.
  3. Possible SCAM AlERT - boardpresident15@yahoo.com

    Well, a couple of things set off red flags. The Uzi is way too cheap. The mark 23 is way too cheap. There are quite a few sentences that aren't 100% correct use of English, usually a good giveaway of a scammer. Finally, the Glock is for sale on this sight in the semi auto section. Same exact description! For sale by leonidas. So, it would appear someone is scamming?
  4. WTK: Arsenal AK SA M-7 A1 semi auto value

    I would say between 8 to 900.00 max. nothing really special about them. They still make very similar versions for under 1200.00. It has been my experience after yrs in the business, that the only ak47 that sell easily and for big money are the polytechs and Norinco.
  5. WTN :Opinion on MP 40 Kit

    Seems high for the amount of damage to it. Larger show I was at seen complete mp40 there, it was battle used, but in a good way. All there except one section of receiver. He wanted 1800.00 and it was still there at end of show.
  6. New to forum New to MGs

    I bought a factory 556 with 3rd burst many yrs ago. Paid 1100.00 for it. Also bought m16 same time for 2000.00 the ruger was a reliable gun as long as using factory mags, but overheated very quickly, after about 4 mag dumps. 22 kit from ciener jammed alot. After about 2 months of owning it, I never shot it anymore because you would have to let it cool. The m16 I just simply changed uppers and kept shooting. Ended up selling the ac556 and bought a stemple and 2 Mac 10s in 45 and 2 Mac 11s in 9. Never missed the ruger. My advice would be to spend the extra and get a m16. You will be much happier with the m16.
  7. WTK EFile 5320 Form

    You will NOT get anything back from them saying they received it. Time line? HA! It's the government! Every single 5320 I sent in before I was a dealer, came back approved AFTER I had already went to where I needed to go with my class 3. I just took a copy of the sent in forms. Never a problem. I had one 5320 come back 2 months after the date I needed! Government workers are even more pathetic than union workers!
  8. Raufoos .50 BMG ammo

    Lots of fake rds! A couple yrs ago on gb there were a few hundred that gb refunded money back if I remember. No way would I buy a 75 to 100 each rd without proof.
  9. Tec-9

    I made a post sample open bolt tec 9. It lasted approximately 400rds of non stop shooting before it broke the receiver in half. Of course it was mag after mag with just dumping the mags. Also literally exploded a AP 9 in semi auto. Just shooting it normally and the whole receiver exploded. Only thing left in my hand was the grip where the mag went. Nothing steel blew up, just the plastic receiver. Both guns could have been partly my fault, as I clean my guns with brake cleaner. After reading on the net, I found out that is a big no no for those early plastic guns, as the acetone changes the molecular structure of the plastic making it very brittle! Personally I would pass on them .

  11. please help identify what i have here. thanks

    Well, heard back from rock island auctions. They said this type of item would not fit in their venue of auction. Their words, not mine. Don't know what that means. So, still waiting to hear back from Julia auctions ( morphys?).
  12. Transferable milled ak question

    Is this a factory gun or a conversion? Sounds like a conversion gun to me. Without pics, can't really say, but I have never seen such a thing on any of my ak47s. Jnc manufacturing can help you out on it.
  13. please help identify what i have here. thanks

    Hi Mike. Thanks for the additional info. I called rock island for their opinion, but they were having an auction, so couldn't return my call. Hopefully Monday. I just want it to go to a collector or museum where it won't be destroyed. I haven't been able to find any other info on it. I will keep you posted. Thanks.
  14. please help identify what i have here. thanks

    Thanks for the info Mike. I don't think I'm going to build my howitzer with it. I think I will use a lar grizzly 50 for it instead. Maybe I will give rock island a call and see what they think. I just hate seeing things of historical value destroyed, as once their gone their gone. I just don't want to ruin it in the slightest bit by making something out of it. Thanks again.
  15. please help identify what i have here. thanks

    I really want a mini howitzer, but after researching these, from what I read there were only 2 of these in 50bmg made? I am thinking it is extremely scarce. They made less than 100 in 30-03,308, and 22 hornet. If I built the howitzer with it, I would dura- coat everything to matching color. I wish I knew a value, as that would make my mind up. Thanks.
