  1. Gentlemen, Please be advised that there is a fellow out of Granby, Co selling various firearms parts, i.e., M1 Garand, M84 Fake scopes, 1919 parts, various barrels to various weapons, and finally Thompson parts. This man has been using four or five differant email accounts, he uses for or five different names, and he is selling things to peole as being authentic USGI when in all actuallity the parts are aftermarket and not collectable. He started popping up on gun boards across the country in February of this year selling parts for Garands, Carbines, M16s, M1903s, P38s, Thompsons, and more. Names used: Craig, Tom, and Chris. He uses the following email addresses: partsdealer1975@gmail.com (akfiles.com), partsdealer@gmail.com (the firearms forum), surplusgundepot@gmail.com (CMP). A common thread is the phone number he gives out: 9705090095. Google that number and you'll see what I'm talking about. He promised others that he would send them their parts and even provides a tracking number, but the tracking number given are not valid. Here is a link to a thread that describes this guys unsrupulous actions, http://www.jouster.com/forums/showthread.p...M84-Scope/page2 He is selling a lot of Thompson parts, be warned you might get hosed with knock off parts. Mike
  2. Believe it or not, this exact story made the 10 o'clock news in Chicago on ABC Channel 7. Chuck Goudie, who is an investigative reporter, did a story on this book and the author. During the news segment, Mr. Goudie brought to light the exact facts that you have pointed out to disporve this authors theory. The guy looked flabbergasted. I laughed when I saw this story. Here it is; http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=n...&id=7475934 Mike
  3. I have never seen parts kits for any FN49. I was interested in getting a stock set for an Egyptian 8mm sometime ago and none could be had. DO you guys have a 1 piece or 2 piece firing pin? MIke
  4. http://www.gunshowbooks.com/cgi-bin/webc.e...prodid=GS407524 Bert- This is the cheapest I have seen this book on the web. Mike
  5. I use ClenzOil on oll of my firearms. Seems to really enhance the woodgrain in the stocks and I like that it protects against moisture re: the metal & finish. The only reason I was asking about the use of grease is because it is called for on the M1 Garand, Carbine, 1911 & 1903. Mike
  6. I know what the purpose of the oiler is, keeping the bolt lubricated, reducing friction, and wear on metal to metal. How come regular grease wasn't used? Was it because Thompson designed it that way? Or does oil work better than grease? MIke
  7. I didnt have to fill out 5 page application, it was two. Keep in mind, I don't have anything to schedule over $10,000. And I specifically asked them about sewer and all of that jazz....they will cover it. What they (CorVens) will not cover is ammunition. Collectibles Ins. will. I have ammo that I bought years ago that has tripled in value/cost. The cost for they same dollar amount with Collectables Ins. was almost doubled to CorVens. Mike
  8. You cant kill a sewer backup or a fire with a Thompson.
  9. What sort of software do you have? I use GunTracker but I am not all that satisfied with it. I use Nm Collector software. They will let you try out a demo version. http://www.nmcollector.net/nmguncollector/buyNow.htm
  10. Also- I asked them if they needed all of the serial numbers from my firearms. I was told no, not unless there is a claim to be filed. It is the insureds responsabilty to document and keep on record any proof, information, serial number or any other important pertinant info related to insuring that firearms. I keep a detailed accounting, along with pics, on every firearm I own. This was very convienent to me because I have a software program that I bought for C&R collectors. I saved it onto a disk and store it in a lockbox. MIke
  11. Yes I did. They insure them. I asked them about non firearm coverage, such as accessories and military acoutrements. They cover that too. It the item is valued over $10k, you have to schedule it. Tim told me they insure collections ranging from $30k up to $15 million. Any legal NFA firearm goes. MIke
  12. Hi All- I just signed up with Cor Vens insurance out of Clinton, Ia. I did a lot of research amongst alot of the insurance carriers out there offering insurance for firearms. They by far the most affordable and after talking to Tim, the cover a lot of things that others do not. I am in no way a big fish when it comes to collecting firearms, but my collection is around $100k. To have my collection fully insured at $115k, along with a $1k deductable, I am paying $350.00. They also allow you to shoot the firearms that are insured, some companies don't allow that.They also allow fair market value if there is a loss. They only require that you have to schedule anything if any one item, pair or set, is valued over $10k. This is underwritten thru Travelers. The lady at the office sent me a dummy policy. If any of you are interested in seeing it to read it over, let me know and I can forward it on to you. www.corevensguninsurance.com Thanks- MIke
  13. Legislation to trace ammunition is pending in several states, and many gun owners are concerned that it is just another attempt by anti-gun groups to violate citizens' Second Amendment rights. An organization known as Ammunition Accountability is pushing to make coding technology mandatory across the nation. Its website claims it is a group of "gun crime victims, industry representatives, law enforcement, public officials, public policy experts, and more" who are "saving lives one bullet at a time." If states pass the legislation, manufacturers will be required to laser etch a serial number into the back of each bullet and the inside of cartridge casings, a patented process developed by Seattle, Wash., resident Russ Ford and his business partners, Steve Mace and John Knickerbocker. According to Seattle Weekly, the men couldn't find an ammunition manufacturer to agree to stamp bullets, so they hired a lobbyist to push for state legislation to require the laser coding. They launched the Ammunition Accountability website and successfully introduced bills in the following 18 states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee and Washington. Many of the proposals have died or stalled in committee; however the group is still urging lawmakers across the country to introduce the same kind of legislation in other states. Ammunition Accountability explains its system would require states to establish databases to track coded ammunition for handguns and assault rifles. The databases would be funded by a surcharge of up to five cents per bullet. According to its sample legislation, manufacturers would be forced to code all ammunition sold in the state. Private citizens and retail outlets would be required to dispose of all non-coded ammunition no later than Jan. 1, 2011. Each vendor would record the following information about customers who buy the ammunition: Date, name, driver's license or ID number, date of birth and ammunition identifier. The businesses would maintain records for three years from the date of purchase. "[W]hen a potential criminal purchases a box of 9mm cartridges, the box of ammunition and the bullets' coding numbers would be connected to the purchaser in a statewide database," Ammunition Accountability explains. "When a bullet is found at a crime scene, the code on the bullet can be read with a simple magnifying glass and then be run through a statewide database to determine who purchased the ammunition and where, providing a valuable investigative lead." However, critics claim the system is severely flawed. The National Rifle Association warns encoding ammunition would result in forfeiture of currently owned ammunition, separate registration for every box of ammo, outrageously expensive costs for police and private citizens and wasted taxpayer money that could be spent on traditional police programs. The NRA also suggests private citizens could be required to keep records on anyone who uses or buys their ammunition – even family members and friends. Furthermore, it said lawbreakers could find ways to prevent their bullets from being traced. "Criminals could beat the system," the NRA claims. "A large percentage of criminals' ammunition (and guns) is stolen. Criminals could also collect ammunition cases from shooting ranges, and reload them with molten lead bullets made without serial numbers." If this goes through, this would really suck. They are trying to impose a .05 cents per round surtax on ammo also. Any thoughts- Mike
  14. A little bit off topic, but none the less quite interesting, I took my kids to see Speed Racer today. The bad guys are shooting the Mach 5 using Grease GUns and PPSh41's. Sorta caught me off guard. MIke
