    Ditto that. HK Sear or trigger box is the penultimate multi-use MG tool. Right there with the M16 RDIAS I feel privileged as well to own these items, but honestly - I've stopped trying to explain this to others unless they specifically ask. But with that ownership comes a tremendous responsibility for safety, and security of your arms. One bad egg could send us all down the crapper.......

    So cool. First one I've seen in a while. Very nice.
  6. Thompson Machine Gun Magazines

    Original 20 and 30 round blued Seymour and AOC marked magazines can still be had for "reasonable" prices. Reasonable, that is given you have a gun worth 20-30K, which must be fed to enjoy. Personally I prefer the 30's on my M1's. Looks a bit funky with the parked Savage, but matches better with the blued WH M1. Well-used, but not abused mags may, over time develop some deformation (spreading) of the feed lips as Thompson mags are made of relatively thin steel. My local SOT made a small anvil, which he places inside the stripped mags, and gently reforms the feed lips. Works like a charm and makes any feed issues go bye-bye. As Mike mentioned above, the current line of semi-auto Thompson's have a slightly different mag-catch location, which requires purchase of the specific semi-auto mag or an elongation of the mag-catch hole to an oval shape. This mod may result in the mag sitting too low in your 1928 or M1, causing a failure to properly strip a round as the bolt comes forward. Also, the West Hurley M1's did not properly mill the full depth of the feed-lip relief on the underside of the receiver, and some had non mil-spec mag catches. Some M1s' and M1A1's have had this corrected (PK does this), but most require some slight adjustment of the mags to lock properly. This is another reason you may see some elongation of the mag-catch hole on some mags. All the original Colt, AO and Savage guns should work properly with original mil-spec 20 and 30 round mags.

    Agree with Mike. Best sub gun bang for the buck with easy access to high quality magazines would be the PS M10 in 45ACP with a Lage upper. Prices are very favorable right now, and there a good number available. Some already have a good selection of accessories for a very fair price. I love my M11/9, with a Gen 1 Lage upper, Aimpoint CompM1 & mini-Uzi folding stock, but it uses STEn Mags, which are cheap -- and I've had exceptional luck with them. KIK - see below I also like the full size RR Uzi, but unless you are buying a Vector/Group gun, know EXACTLY what you are getting and how - and to what extent - it was converted. Can you say "blocking bar"?? Recommend you just say "no" to a bolt gun......but you can move it around...... KIK-see below For a few more bucks you could look at an Erb or Wilson tube-gun MP40, or earlier German MP35, MP18, Lanchester, Sterling, STEn, etc....but these and most other like-guns are "one trick ponies." Just picked-up a nice Erb MKIV Sterling at the Creek, for a reasonable price. My second, as I want to convert one to a MK5. Sterlings are another well-liked gun, and somewhat unique with their Sunkorite "crinkle" paint, folding stock and side-loading mag. Here again, price varies depending on pedigree and details. Sterling Mags are outstanding. Never, if ever, have I had a feed problem..... KIK- see below Finally, you could also save your cash, and eventually get a HK sear or trigger box, but then you'd go broke joining the ranks of us "host whores", as HH puts it..... who must have every barrel length in all three calibers. MP5, MP5K, MP5-RS, HK53, HK33K, HK51, G3K, etc..... But, the basic MP5, HK or clone, .....with a happy switch....puts a smile on everybody's face !! Make good, well-thought-out choices, based on your research. KIK - Knowledge is King. Ted
  8. If you decide to sell the vehicle mount by itself, LMK. Thanks, Ted TedstricklandMGMYCRACK@msn.com
  9. WTS: HK91 SBR (G3K) Sold

    PM sent. Thanks.
  10. I recently read that someone submitted multiple F4 applications with only one pair of fingerprint cards. At least one of the F4 applications was returned, saying "no fingerprint cards were received" It seems that ATF is sometimes separates the applications. Now, for any mailing with multiple F1 or F4 applications, I send a pair of cards, separate checks, a copy of my trust and all other application materials with each and every item submitted. A real PITA, but I want to minimize any reason for delay.
