  1. WTS M79 and M203 40mm Launchers, on Form1's

    Seconds on the Colt m203 if it's the A2 variant (non rail mount)
  2. WTB - BRP XMG upper

    Bump. There's got to be one of these floating around.
  3. WTB - BRP XMG upper

    Good morning, Gents. Looking to find a BRP Corp XMG kit and accesories package, if anyone still has one/knows of one. Have cash in hand. Let me know what if you'd like to sell. Thanks!
  4. Good afternoon, Gents. Testing the waters to see what is available at the moment. I'm looking for a new .30 caliber toy. I don't presently have an example of a squad automatic and am thinking about the following items in order of desire: MG34 - rewats OK as well. FN FAL - a SAR 48 in Israeli Heavy configuration would be ideal, but others considered. Fixed AK47 - I have a type 56 folder. But a fixed I could build into an RPK. 1919A4/A6 - not a huge fan of these, but will take a look. Thank you! Have a great Fourth of July!
  5. Good afternoon, Gents! I'm looking for a Lage Max10-9 slow fire upper for the M10 smg, as Lage Manufacturing presently has them on backorder. Mark 1 or 2 considered, preference for Mark 2. I've already got the Max 10/31 and Max 10-45 upper. Please let me know if you've got a 9mm that you'd part with. Thank you!
  6. Registered M16 auto sear

    Some years ago, Ruben Mendiola had for sale an AR15 that had a conversion device somehow installed in the forward assist. It was also 'married' to the weapon, and the upper was not able to be replaced. I always wanted to know more about that rifle, but never got around to asking about it. Maybe this is something similar? It could even be the same gun, for what it's worth.
  7. M16 shooter preservation questions

    These guys have said most of it all. The only thing I would mention depends on if its a factory (Colt) or a conversion like Sendra or SGW. Sometimes those can be out of spec and need to be sent to a competent smith.
  8. FNC need help / parts

    As I'm having my coffee and thinking about this again, it could also be beneficial to inspect the carrier for stress cracks and have them TIGed up as well. Should you actually mail the carrier off, make absolutely certain that you insure the package for the cost of a full fnc semi auto rifle. You'll likely never find a replacement bolt carrier should they lose it.
  9. FNC need help / parts

    If I recall correctly, there are no factory machine gun FNCs in the US - theyre all converted semis. The folders were originally imported for NJ police, though. While there are registered receiver guns, they're done in exactly the same manner. In fact, I don't believe the factory auto sear works at all in these conversions. What this means is that every auto fnc bolt carrier was welded to gain a trip, which honestly is encouraging. TBA Suppressors is the primary FNC shop now that S&H has scaled down their work, maybe give them a call. I also would think M60Joe could do it. There's little he can't weld.
  10. I bought a PTR91 from them leading right up to the election. They had the best price by far online, and actually had stock on hand. They're part of the DFW metroplex, so I drove up to their store to pick it up. They're quality cats, don't be afraid to buy from them.
  11. Hey Sturm, Brian Hammer (Final Shot Armory, LLC) is handling a form 4 for me on a Polytech that NFA branch informed me is being returned for correction (digit missing from serial). I have some questions for him, but I dont have the same phone I had last year. Final Shot was previously in Ft Worth, though they moved locations last summer. The contact info on the website is disconnected, though his FFL was renewed last May. Does anyone know of a means to get in touch? Thank you!
  12. First time MG recommendations

    And once you narrow down your choices, spend some time to sniff out the market. Amazing deals do pop up if you're patient. Last year I found a Polytech AKMS for 16k, and I snatched what may be the last sub teen-thousand FNC yesterday. There's no real ryhme or reason to finding them, but its always fun to window shop.
  13. WTB: Factory Colt M16

    Wow. I'm impressed, and that may very well be the last of the sub 20k m16a1s. +1 for the local find. I always wonder what's available but not listed online. Unfortunately most SOTs I visit almost never have anything other than a mac.
  14. smith for M16

    Actually, if I recall correctly you do not *have* to do any forms for a repair if the smith has their SOT or manufacturers (07) ffls. The weapon remains yours, and is still registered to you. Of course the ATF recommends you submit a form 5 to protect yourself from any sort of false transfer issues, but again I don't think you are required to. Form 5s typically have quick turnaround. Insurance and shipping are something you definitely do need to take the high road on, though.
