MachineGunBoards.com Board Guidelines - Please Read

Machinegunboards.com is a private forum -- Moderators reserve the right to remove posts, remove membership, and run the board as seen fit. Machinegunboards.com also reserves the right to refuse access to anyone, for any reason. DO NOT come here to make trouble. Posting here is a privilege, not a right. Again, All NFA Rules apply.

Machinegunboards.com and its administrators do not assume any risks of doing business or receiving and acting upon information on these boards. Use common sense, and act upon information seen here at your own risk. Always observe appropriate safety practices when handling any firearm. An excellent resource for general firearm safety rules can be found at the NRA Gun Safety Rules Site.


Forums are intended for appropriate information exchange. This forum is NOT to be used for personal attacks, malicious comments, and improper or illegal information exchange. Any concerns or complaints regarding information, products, or services should first be addressed person to person, not on the forums boards. (For this purpose, an internal e-mail system is provided to registered members to contact each other privately.) We intend this to be a fun place to interact with others of similar interests. While interacting on the boards, please treat others courteously, with dignity and respect. Spirited discussions are fine, as long as they are topical, and handled in a professional manner by all involved. Moderators will determine when a post is inappropriate, and the poster will likely NOT receive notification regarding why their post was deleted. They should assume that there was an issue with their deleted post, not dwell on it, and move FORWARD.

While the boards are mainly intended for information exchange, there are instances when an individual may wish to post something for sale to other collectors on the individual forums. If you wish to post an item for sale, you must be at least listed as an “RKI Member.” You may also post items for sale if you are listed as a “Long Time RKI Member,” “Respected Member,” “Technical Expert,” “Industry Expert,” or if you are a Board Moderator. Only post items you actually have in your possession – do not post future expected items that have not been physically received yet. If you purchase something listed on the boards, you assume all risks, so understand the seller's terms of sale, return policies, conditions, type of payments and timeframe of delivery prior to your transaction. It is BEST if you have such details in writing, via letter, signed fax or e-mail. Again, All NFA Rules apply, and these boards are NOT primarily market boards.

How do I become an “RKI Member?” (“RKI” stands for “Reasonably Knowledgeable Individual”) There is no pre-set method of attainment, but if you frequent the board, and post regularly, or are an active member of one of the Thompson collector clubs who is known to the moderating team, you will gain such a listing next to your board name in good time.
