  1. When Virginia enacts am assault weapons ban, does that also affect those who own MGs in that State? Virginia requires registration of MGs at the State level, so I’m guessing they’ll have a pretty easy time running those down if AWB extends to transferable MGs.
  2. Yeah, but it’s only worth something to someone who wants it. That’s one of the reasons the big DDs don’t sell all that well. There are not very many anti-tank guns or Howitzers in the registry. Very few, in fact. But they’re a lot cheaper than these MGs because not many people want them. Expensive to shoot and maintain...you know the deal. I also think it has to do with the forum. RIA and Morphy draw high income collectors. That type of stuff would take forever to sell on something like Gunbroker. I also personally think the term “collector value” is abused and can be misleading. Flamethrowers is a great example. The same auction houses mentioned above will occasionally auction off an M1 or an M2, and it sometimes is advertised as complete, all original, in the crate, etc. If that’s what you want, great, but that doesn’t mean it works. In fact, only about 25% of the complete units out there actually work (according to Charlie Hobson). So what’s more valuable? A flamethrower that might have all the right, original parts, but whose tanks will rupture because they fail hydrotesting? Or one that may not be 100% but that you can take out and fire? If the answer is not the rare, exceptional case that happens to be both, then I think the answer my vary from person to person.
  3. There’s also the fact that the future leaders are talking about confiscating guns, and with the recent ruling in bump stocks that said the government is sovereign, and does not need to compensate you when it confiscates something dangerous, why would someone want to risk spending thousands on something they might not have for very long?
  4. FRAUD ALERT

    It was actually in reference to your original post at Armslist. I just looked it up and contacted the guy because 1) I was bored with Dorian being here and 2) because watching these guys try to bullshit their way through a fraudulent ad is always amusing to me. In any case, you'll be glad to know that Armslist finally removed that post and your firearm is no longer listed there. -David
  5. FRAUD ALERT

    All I’m saying is the guy trying to fraudulently sell your firearm sucks at being fraudulent. I am an FFL/SOT and he sent me a 01 FFL (Piney Woods Arms) that I’m certain is not his and no SOT. And I’ve never met a legit NFA dealer who ONLY accepts PayPal or wire transfers. I hope no one falls for his BS, but he throws up lots of red flags.
  6. FRAUD ALERT

    Huh. J and J Firearms of Catlettsburg KY apparently has a 01 FFL from Hawkins TX. And calls itself Piney Woods Arms Inc. Sorry, I really enjoy fuckin with these guys. And he's FOS. He will only accept payment in the form of PayPal or Wired funds. As if I was born yesterday...

  8. For sale Breda 30 C&R $9500

    I tried messaging you, because it looks like your response go cut off.
  9. If I had a rocket launcher.......

    Who reactivated your tube? I bought an RPG2 a while back with bars welded in the tubes. Trigger mechanism is still intact. I just don’t know a good person to do the welding, and that’s one job I wouldn’t want done poorly.
  10. For sale Breda 30 C&R $9500

    Hi! Any photos? Is this 6.5 or 7.35mm? Original? Rewat? Thanks so much.
  11. Next mg

    I think it depends on what you want to do with it. If you are just looking to shoot, a MAC is fine. They’re very customizable too, so you can have a lot of fun with them that way. No shortage of parts other. If you’re more historically inclined, a Reising is fine choice. They were Marine Corps guns in the Pacific during WWII as you may know already. That was my first MG and despite their reputation, I thought it was a great SMG if you maintain it. Parts are not quite as plentiful, but they are out there. Magazines are pretty expensive too. You might also be able to find a STEN tube gun for around 10K as another option.
  12. WTS C+R BREDA 30 7X57 NICE !

    Mike, how does it run? Have you taken it out and shot it? -David
  13. AVT 40 pros and cons

    Most AVT-40s, as I understand it, were semis that were later converted to FA. There are some subtle differences in the in the appearance of the muzzle brake, right?
  14. FINALLY APPROVED

    Better late than never, huh? Congrats, dude.
