  1. WTK: Opinions on transferable M2 carbines.

    Gentlemen, Thank you for your advice. It is much appreciated. I will keep my eye open for a conversion kit. The prices seem to be moving up as of lately. The days of the affordable FA guns are escaping us. I believe that the coming bump fire stock / Binary trigger ban with put more upward pressure on MG prices. The cheap alternatives are going the way of the Dodo. I could be wrong....
  2. Hello all, I am interested in purchasing an registered M2 cabine. I would like to field everyone's opinion on what the best option would be. The way I understand it is that there are 3 different options. An original C&R registered M2 receiver, an M1 that was converted to an M2, and registered conversion kits with different components depending on manufacturer, being the registered machine gun. I am looking for a shooter and not so much a collectors item. A WW2 M2 would be cool, but I would be reluctant to shoot it much. The registered M1/M2 receiver is a shooter but will it appreciate in value comparably. The conversion kit seems to be a good option as it can be moved to different hosts and may be less susceptible to wear. They seem to be bringing the most money as of lately. Is there a preferable manufacturer,or a kit with the best registered component? What are everyone's thoughts and or advice? Thank you.

    Special interest Arms in Gardnerville, NV was making them a while ago. It looks like Richard has stopped making them. Maybe he can give you a lead. http://www.specialinterestarms.com/index.php?page=delisle
  4. looking for 1919A1 parts kits

    I have been hanging on to it as an investment. So "reasonable" is less than what I will take. I found you one though. They have them in Reno. Here is a link to Sarges. Thanks for your time, and good luck on your project. https://www.sargesmilitarysurplus.com/product/browning-1919-a4/
  5. looking for 1919A1 parts kits

    I have an Israeli 1919a4 parts kit. It is in good shape, complete minus the right side plate. What are you looking to spend?

  7. WTK: Reference Check on Chesterfield Armament

    All, I have completed my purchase with Chesterfield Armament. As Aaron had predicted, it went smoothly and professionally. I would not hesitate to purchase from them again. Thanks Aaron. James.
  8. WTK: The "Merle" Thompson 22lr conversion kit.

    I did send Merle an email a while back, but I did not receive a response. I thought someone here would know. I guess I will try calling next. Thank you for your input.
  9. Well, I missed out on a Thompson SMG 22lr conversion kit that was for sale on Gunbroker. It was a kit made for 28's and M1's. The auction said it was manufactured by a gentleman named Merle Bitikofer aka The Drum Doctor. I haven't been able to find out much about if these kits are available. Much of my search turns up older board threads about them. The consensus is that they are much better than the Ciener kits. Does anyone know if these are still being manufactured. I would like to purchase one. Thanks for your time in advance. James.
  10. WTK: Reference Check on Chesterfield Armament

    Aaron, yes they are out of Va. Thank you for your comments.
  11. Hello All, I am currently working on a deal for an NFA item with Chesterfield Armament. Has anyone here had any experience with the gentlemen at Chesterfield. So far they have been professional. Trying to do my due diligence prior to sending any funds. Anyone out there have any comments or experiences with this dealer? Thank you. James.

    R.L. Same here. I used to buy from them solely. Their deals are not deals, and their shipping rates are ridiculous! Midway seems to be heading in that direction too. They have low priced shipping, but don't seem to have many deals anymore.
  13. To anyone interested this Gentlemans ad, I purchased a S-Co Hybrid from Ryan through Gun-broker. The transaction was very smoothe,professional, and he shipped fast. I am very happy with my purchase and would buy from him again. Just my 2 cents worth. I am working on talking my cousin into an Omega, and purchasing it through you. Thanks Ryan.
  14. Hello All, I am looking for a stainless steel Remington model 700 barrel in non shooting condition. Caliber and length are not of concern. The barrel will be used to set up my mill for barrel fluting. The cheaper the better. Let me know what you have and what you want for it or them. Thanks. James
  15. WTS C&R A.O. Bridgeport Thompson $19.5k

    I am assuming this is a 1928 Bridgeport . Has the gun been rewatted , refinished,and by whom? Was it re marked by the manufacturer doing the work? Looking for a good shooter Tommy gun.
