These guys advertise NOS GI parts at reasonable prices.  Are they they the real deal?  Thanks.

If this is the same dealer that is at Knob Creek, he appears to have some quality stuff. I would also check out Board member Phil Askew for quality NOS parts and Omega Weapon Systems for good quality used parts.

   I have purchased from him and sometimes the parts are covered with cosmolene. When you

degrease there can be rust and pitting which has been camouflaged by the cosmolene. I do not

think they are dipping bad parts in cosmolene, I think that over 75 years many parts - not just

Thompson parts - even though they were dipped in cosmolene, that water somehow gets in

under the coating and causes corrosion. I have experienced this with all sorts of parts thought

to be MINT-in-the grease. When you degrease a part the residue of the cosmolene is a brown

substance that looks just like rust. If you are lucky it wipes off and the part is pristine. If it doesn't

wipe off, its rust.

    I don't mean to scare you off of RTG. I continue to buy parts from them but it can get a little

tricky when you tell them - or anyone - that their MINT-in-the-grease part turned out to be

rusty when you degreased and cleaned it.

Robert is what I refer to as a "friendly competitor"!
If he has something you need do not hesitate to place the order.
He gets some nice material and has good sources.
I don't think he was at Knob Creek, but I usually do some business with him at SAR.
I have known him a very long time and have always had a good experience with him.
