In an earlier post I offered a 10 round drum here before offering it on ebay. A reply or 2 said that the guys on this board would most likely be waiting for the SAW ban to die and look for hi-cap drums.

So..... I did the auction thing. Had one bidder and was within 10 hours of closing. Bang-ebay pulls it for being a hi-cap mag and basically calls me a liar for posting that it was a 10 round mag.

There was another drum that was hi-cap and they pulled it too.

Ebay and paypal can go to h&!!.

I had a m-16 gun rack on ebay and they pulled it. Said it was against their new rules. I cannot understand how a gun rack should be against the rules. Screw'em.

You now need to be creative.

Create a listing with the words "Thompson" and "Drum".

For example, you can say the following:

"Its a Thompson wheel that you can bang like a drum but is not a gun"

Anyone searching e-bay will use the words "Thompson" "Drum" or "Gun" will find this item in the search. Anyone familar with the Thompson item will know exactly what it is. cool.gif cool.gif cool.gif

Well, I did price it and did it here but was told it probably wouldn't sell and to try evibay. Like the hooker said, "Some days it doesn't pay to get into bed."

One of the bidders contacted me "offline" and we are negotiating".
