BillinBama Posted May 18 Report Share Posted May 18 I'd never really considered a 76 , no reason pro or con, just never on my radar, but after reading the posts on this forum and some other sites, I decided to investigate what waa available and see if I might buy one. There are a couple of GB but I usually don't consider that site for Class III items, So, a Google search pulled up JCS Gun Shop in Iowa City, Iowa, good looking website, lots of crypto mentions, and they have two model 76's, both under $10,000. Unbelievable. I looked at their other C3 guns and almost all were below market price, many WELL below. Plus, they offer a 30% discount if you pay with crypto. I set up an account and started the buy process for one of the 76's just to see what would happen, got all the way to the pay part, and they offered me 10% off is I paid with PayPal F&F. Things didn't seem right, even though the website is really pretty well designed , so I searched for reviews, and almost everything I found was negative, but my first impression kept coming back, "if it seems too good to be true, it probably is." I haven't seen it mentioned on Sturm as a scam, maybe I should post it, but I definitely believe it is. Oh, I also have been in discussion via email with a guy over a FBP bolt/recoil assy after getting burned by a hacker over an MP40 one, so I'm really skittish. This one was just slightly below the going price but I kept hesitating. The seller sent me copies of his license, passport and C&R license, but I asked him to call me. His ID showed residence in MA, but I received a call from Idaho. Not that unusual since everybody keeps their original number when moving, but his accent was so thick (middle eastern) that I could hardly understand anything he said. Bu-bye. I'm getting to the point of not buying anything except from known websites and a few trusted friends in the CIII community. So take a fool's advice and be careful out there!
