  1. Hello experts! I recently picked up one of the early M72 LAW Launchers I would like to restore the basic function, (NOT actually firing explosives!), cosmetics, and then maybe make a Flare launcher or maybe a T-Shirt Cannon if possible? As far as function goes, the inside tube only pulls out 1 3/4 inches... I had to spray the heck out of it with WD to get it to move at all. It was jammed shut and would not budge. The line that pulls on the firing pin is either missing or fell back inside the firing or trigger mechanism assembly. There are two straps that seem to hold on the whole firing assembly. Could something in there be jamming up the tube? If I take the two straps off will that be enough to remove the trigger assembly, or will I have to drill out the three rivets on each side also? The parts I am looking for are for the early model M72 and NOT the M72A1: So here goes, I am looking for: Front Cap with carry strap assembly Front Sight The Black "US ARMY" Sticker that wraps around the whole tube at the front The Rubber Boot on the Trigger or firing Mechanism The other Rubber Boot that goes on the end of the tube at the 3 o'clock position (looking from the back of the tube) I know that I can find some of the parts on the Bay, but I was hoping someone would have them all for sale and if not then I would rather buy it piece by piece on a forum rather than give my money to the @$$ Wipes that run the Greed Bay. Please Message me If you have any of the parts for sale...
  2. ok, am I supposed to guess why you gave me your email address?

    That may be the going price now, not sure...Last one I saw was around 30-35 years ago. Asking price was around $200 back then. I should have grabbed it then.

  5. WTB: M72 LAW TUBE

    Sorry for butting in, but if the price is right, I would be interested in a few, (or few dozen), just for theatrical props or future investment. ( But I am an old fart, so I can not wait 50 years to make a $5 profit on each...)

    How Much $ ? Quantity is not an issue, Price is always the key...
  7. A Kick up for the month. Do your research online then grab this deal before someone else does!
  8. Ok, No BULL SPIT! Price drop to move them NOW! $225 for the ten Shipped! That comes down to $20 per Mag plus $18 for Priority Mail Shipping plus $7 for a half pint of lubricant for the throat! Don't quote me on this but I don't think you will find USGI Mags at this price.
  9. Hello fellow enthusiasts, I have 10 USGI Grease Gun Magazines for sale. They are 30 rounders I believe, 8 are: SPW GL C-153427 & 2 are: KL GL C153427 Obviously USGI Surplus Mags about 3 or 4 have pitting I think only 2 have large areas of it. 4 or 5 have one or two at most each, tiny dings in the sides and all have minor scratches. Couple of the pics the mags will look crappy because the grease had not been removed. I am trying to describe best I can so no one is dis illusioned thinking they are getting NEW Mags. You will NOT get new mags! As all you guys should know, these are THICK solid Mags. So any of the cosmetics will not have ANY effect on function. Which means they should all function as well as new ones. There is ONE that has rust on the top end and follower. So you will have to clean up, ( Sand), the follower and top end of the mag, before you can use it. Now, I only took the baseplate off of one. But inside it did look brand new! I need to get $20 each so that would be $200 for the lot plus $25 for Priority Mail Shipping!
  10. Hey, but thanks much for the backup! If they see you do it then they are sure to listen!!!
  11. Buddy! This was not meant for you! I know you use it for more than a hat rack! I was hoping to help some of the youngsters that sometimes tend to be impatient and in the process just end up shooting themselves in the foot! ( Metaphoricly speaking) !
  12. This is meant for the guys running the show, more or less. What do you think of adding a High power, large caliber, air gun forum? I mean the type of air guns that start at $600 and go up to $2600 or more, that you fill with a Scuba tank or other large tank. And use large caliber slugs to take down pest like Coyotes, hunt Deer and wild Boars. There is a following for those and I believe you guys could use the extra following on this great site. I have no interest in the paintball and BB or AirSoft Market, and that is a totally different direction. Although Paintball is good training for war, I think it has its' own forums and probably does not belong here. But I see that there are not only Collectors Items listed here, but also serious hunting tools. So I believe the pro air guns should not be ignored/overlooked. Whatever you guys decide, you will always have me as a follower/supporter!
  13. Hello fellow Gun Nuts! I have dealt with many USPS Money Order sales in the past and have found the following to work for me in the great city of Chicago, CrOOK County! as well as up North in the town of Antioch, in Lake County, IL. If you are doing a large money sale, say $2K or more, offer the buyer a $10 discount if he/she takes the extra step to buy 3 or 4 smaller Money Orders of no more than $600 each. That way they will be easier to cash at the Post Office for FREE! I have worked out a friendship with my Postal Workers, and believe me, they really are normal people and like to have friends that say "Hello, how are you doing", instead of grumpy people bitching about the long line/long wait! So If I have a money order that needs to be cashed, I come in towards the end of the day and ask the Postal worker to hold on to their cash for me the next day if they do not have enough to cash my Money Order that same day. It may seem like a pain in the butt especially if you live far from a post office. But here in Northern Illinois they are everywhere. And I do not mind coming in three or four days in a row to get my Money Orders Cashed for FREE! And at the same time verified that they are not fake or stolen. ( I have them all checked the first time to make sure that they are legit BEFORE I ship the merchandise... Not really having much weight one way or the other but I will tell you about two incidents at the Post Office! First was a HUGE post office, my fourth stop, and like the previous three, the person at the counter tells me that he does not have $400 to cash my Money Order... Well at this point I was frustrated, so I politely asked: Are you trying to tell me that a Multi State, Government backed Corporation does not have $400 to give to their employees to run the business that they are there for? AND the Manager of this branch can not open that HUGE safe I see in the back and give you $400 to do your job? Well this teller was nice enough to go in back, relay my message to the Supervisor, and surprisingly, he came back with the $400 I needed! Second ocasión, I walked into a Suburban post office that was a little bigger than my closet... I must have been drunk because I was hoping to cash a $1200 money order. To my surprise, The Only Postal Employee there did the normal counterfeit/stolen check, then gave me my $1200... So in the Post Office World, Size does Not Matter !
  14. Dude, You can not win with an idiot unless you stoop to his mentality & playing field. If someone did that to me I would do an immediate refund and do everything in my power to block this person from wasting any more of my time. Life is too precious to be wasting time on negative biased individuals. and God did not put me here to rehabilitate them...
