Oh the humanity. Its like waiting for the Hindenburg to dock, watching the Titanic sail, like saying what a lovely Sunday morning in Honolulu, 12/07/41. Why must they torture us like this!

Stay away from this. Saw cut, "deactivated", whatever - don't mess with it... this could just be too much trouble if what we hear is true about importing parts illegally or against lend/lease. You can get all of these parts domestically (sans receiver, but we all know that is illegal), so why risk it?

I am only posting this if someone new on this forum sees this and (not knowingly) thinks this is a good deal or worth your hard earned money.

Remember what your Mama said - "If its too good to be true.... it probably is."

Chris.

P.S. This dude/ette is from the Ukranie and probably only takes wire transfers or something non-recovervable. 'Nuff said. Probably the same bastards who want my PayPal and Ebay accounts via fake portal "confirm your account" emails. I love messing with them.

Maybe they include a bar of soap on a rope, with the kit. If you can't figure that out, don't worry. LOL!
