  1. 1918 A2 NESA BAR pre 86

    Ad reads like a scammer. Just my opinion. A photo of a photo of the gun. Not actually a straight up picture of the gun. Bizarre. Looked at the earlier ad. Can't tell if it is the same gun as the "photo". You'd think if you were selling a 14thousand dollar gun, you'd at least take decent photos and write a detailed description. But that's just me.
  2. Transferable Browning M2HB 50BMG

    Fish smell, red flags, but that's just me....
  3. Wasn't this the joker that had the hinky Uzi FS ad about a month ago? I looked for it, and it's gone. Good riddance. And like you say, lots of red flags, but lets not point them out and help this A$$ clown.
  4. I may be able to go back and get some photos of it. If I can, I'll post them. It seemed very well done, just an unconventional arrangement. The Trip and lever assembly appeared mass produced/commercially made.
  5. I was appraising an estate recently and there was an HK91 with a Campbell trigger group/sear pack. I've never seen this particular variation before. A lever sticks out of the grip behind the trigger to run this thing. It doesn't appear to be the usual Sear in the trigger housing. The receiver has been converted to push pins, so I presume that makes it a registered receiver, and "married" to the sear. Kind of an odd arrangement, but cycled by hand normally. Value? I put an estimate of 25K on it, but thought that might be a little undervalued. Has anyone else seen this maker?
  6. WTK: Opinions on transferable M2 carbines.

    Sometimes you just have to be in the right place at the right time. An old customer called me about 4 years ago. During the conversation he said he was quitting his SOT and selling all his C3 stuff. My question, of course, was "whatcha got?" One of the items was a Broadhead Armory registered M-2 carbine kit in a host gun. "How much?",I asked... For you? 2,900.00 he says....I told him, "I'll be there tomorrow morning with the money, we can do the forms and get it all sent out." It's in my safe now, and runs great. As they say, timing is everything...
  7. Seems to be a fairly scarce item. There would be no way I would alter or paint it. 50 cal test rigs are unheard of.
  8. The burst barrels are usually bore obstructions. In a couple of the photos you can see the bulge where the obstruction was. Like the BFR 45-70 revolver, in particular. The burst chambers are usually from some type of overload, too much of the wrong type of powder. I've got a box full of this type of thing that I've accumulated over the years working on other folks' guns.
  9. PP-19 Bizon

    I've always thought the Bizon was the coolest AK ever.
  10. Buyers beware Trident Rifles LLC

    Yeah, that sure looks like a Benelli SBE II 12 ga to me. I'm not sure how that isn't "as described". Sounds like a shyster. Best wishes.
  11. m2 carbine kits ?s

    The Broadhead Armory M-2 conversion kit I have has a serial numbered connector lever,(trip lever). It was a good investment 3 years ago. I think the little M-2's are under appreciated. They are a hoot to shoot. The trick is to keep them well lubed, and shoot good ammo.
  12. Sadly, and without good reason, they refuse to ship to Alaska. The 49th state. Yes, we are part of the United States. So, I guess they do not like to sell things.
  13. A take on the ATFs leaked white page memo.

    I think it is an interesting read. The issue I see with no law letter post samples is that if you broaden the market to "kitchen table" SOT's , you will increase demand, and unless the supply is increased as well, then prices will escalate. M-60s may not be 50 or 60 k, but they sure won't be 20k. Basic econ 101. It would be nice to remove the restriction on post 86 transferable mfg. It would cause substantial losses in value of MG's, but in the end, would make the hobby more affordable for folks that don't have 20k laying around to spend on a gun. But I don't hold out any hope of that.
  14. What Did Santa Bring You?

    Father in law gave me a very nice correct Remington Rand 1911A1. Nice dark greenish parked finish, very pretty. He had it stashed for decades. One of the best presents I've gotten in years.
  15. I just checked my 3 unlined WW2 vintage M-2 barrels. The markings are pretty cryptic. There is, of course, the drawing number, just behind the carry handle cut. Plus some other small letters and numbers, but nothing that would lead me to think they were manufacturers codes. M-2 barrels are pretty interchangeable, so, I don't really worry too much about which barrel goes in the gun, other than to use the most worn out one first, till it gets close to the reject mark on the throat or bore gauge. My gun is a Frigidaire, as well.
