Judging by recent prices for Westies, I'll bet this one will sell in a few days!

Smoker--
Ain't that the truth! My friends must think I'm nuts when I purchased my MGs, sight unseen. I guess for guns like this Westie, you kind of assume there might be a few kinks. Maybe that's ok, as long as the receiver is intact and you're not dealing with a scam artist.

Hawkeye,...that`s great!!!...I was hoping someone from here would jump on it when I first saw on subguns...I do think it is a fair price and I hope it runs good...if it does post it and if it don`t give PK a call....like Sgt says above,it is basically the paperwork that you buy and the rest is the fun part,good luck! wink.gif wink.gif

Good job! Hawkeye. I've never regretted my purchases, I'll bet you won't either. Give us a progress report when you get it.

Great job. I know someone else on here that picked up a WH M1. As soon as he gets it, we'll give a shell by shell account on the gun.

Way to go Hawkeye-Joe. Parakeet just listed a WH m-1 on Sturmgewehr for $11,500.00. Looks like you saved some $$$$$$$$.
