  2. How many aks where converted by swd?

    There were a lot less AK's in the US before the May 1986 MG build cut-off (Hughes Amendment- HR4332). Steyr imported Maadi's, Kassnar imported SA-85's, Chicom's in both 7.62 and .223, Mitchel imported Yugo AK47 & RPK-47, and a few others.....plus some "bubba builds" from hand folded receivers and parts kits (I assume). Up until the ban, a full auto Colt M16 was cheaper than an AR-15. No Poly Legends in US until after 1986. I once owned a rewelded Type 56-1 milled receiver RR, which was expertly reassembled following three strategically placed clean band-saw cuts....... Most of the transferable conversions out there today are Chicom guns, largely done by SWD and Fleming, among others........ Anybody seen any others....please list them Good question. Ted MGTedFL
  3. AR Semi-auto BCG Weld-up?

    Mike & Ryo, I get your points, but Ares charges $700+ just for the Carrier, less bolt, and feed actuator roller. Also, AFAIK, they have discontinued producing the FA carrier for the non-belt fed MCR which I like as a suppressor host due to the adjustable barrel Gas system. Crazy that I can get a NOS bolt for my pig for less than a Shrike bolt. I guess that I was under the mistaken impression that this was fairly common in the past and not excessively difficult or expensive. Guess I bite the bullet and BOAT (break out another thousand) for the Ares part..... Thanks for your input....tremendously appreciated. Do you know anyone willing to do the work that I could get a job cost from. I have four SA bolts that need to be modified. P.S. Love my Hillary pmags you sold me at the Creek last year.... Take care, Ted
  4. AR Semi-auto BCG Weld-up?

    Greetings, could you guys please point me to someone who can weld-up semi-auto AR-15 syle BCG to FA. With standard M16 carriers this would no be an issue, as FA BCG’s are plentiful, however...I want to weld up several Ares (FightLite) Shrike/MCR BCG’s to work with a RDIAS. Gotta be cheaper than buying a FA BCG from Ares. Any recommendation appreciated. Also, is anyone out there currently milling lowers to low-shelf RDIAS configuration like I used to get from M60 Joe. Thanks, Ted
  5. Delay in mailing out approved forms?

    Recently received Eight F4's (MG's, cans and SBR's) to a Trust ..... on same day, mailed to my SOT. Each F4 was in a separate envelope. They ranged from 13 month to 5 months since sent in. Sounds like they "batched" my applications. Our local Sheriff's Fingerprint office still closed, so been a real PITA awaiting that reopening. FWIW, Ted
  6. WTB: M11/9

    Thanks guys for PM's and texts. Found what I was looking for. Thanks Jon at Sienna Armory.
  7. WTB: M11/9

    WTB: SWD M11/9. Complete lower or stripped lower receiver, parked - will suffice. Would also purchase a full gun with OEM upper, but currently have multiple uppers. Done need "kits", with 3 uppers, 10 plastic mags, cans, custom cases, custom finishes or unrealistic prices...... Sten mag or uzi mag conversions OK as well. Plus$$ for well-done sten mag conversion. PM me here or Call/text at: 727-510-2414 Email: tedstricklandMGMYCRACK-NOSPAM@msn.com Thank You. Ted MGTedFL

  10. WTS : Machine gun armory MK 46 $5000 (SPF)

    Greetings, I'm interested but I have a few questions. Any chance we could have a short chat at you convenience? I can be reached at (727) 510-2414 cell/text. or tedstrickland@msn.com. Thanks, Ted
  11. WTS: HK51 A3 SBR Sear Ready by Vollmer $4900

    Could you please add some pics of the internals. Thank You.
  12. Next mg

    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.......
