  1. Joe Scott Has really good repos. I have had one of his on my Para carbine for years. Ryche
  2. I have to agree with both Brian and Art. I found in the last year when having to sell some of my Luger collection. For as iconic a weapon as it is the market is very soft right now. Lots were interested but i had to bring my price down in order to sell. The auction did fairly well when i had to sell a couple MG's but they are in a top end collector market that is also showing some dipping in price in the last few years. So yes it is a crap shoot but you can always hope to come out on the winning end. Probably wouldn't be as much fun if it wasn't Ryche
  3. How much did it finish at??? Cant see the auction on GB any more. Ryche
  4. I would love to have one of the carbines, just because i have seen only one years ago. At the time i was to young and unknowledgeable and $3000 was alot of money. Brian: I have only heard of or seen a Mexican crest through you, but i wouldn't mind one of those either Thanks for the heads up info, there are still alot of guys out there that believe the Guard story. Ryche
  5. Although the pics seem to be gone, I looked at this rifle and it is a very solid piece. The barrel is immaculate nice and bright with very good rifling. The stock is in very good shape minor dings and such as is to be expected. Over all it appears to be in fine shape. Ryche.
  6. Other than a couple of the mag housing rivets coming out{will be replaced soon} mine works beautifully. I shoot it on a somewhat regular basis. Also after appearing on the Forgotten Weapons episode it now gets a bit of attention when i take it out They updated the post on GB with" the weapon has been tried and functions with dummy rounds but should be checked by a gunsmith before attempting live fire" buyer beware... Ryche
  7. I am not sure who the seller is but i bet i know who built it......... Not your guy Brian. Ryche
  8. NPC stands for Netherlands purchasing committee roughly. As Ed said the book is a really good investment. I have read mine cover to cover a couple times and refer to it often. Ryche
  9. I would be happy to compare it to mine which i believe has been un altered. Ryche
  10. Hey I am in Prescott as well. We should meet at the PV gun show in April. Talk JSAR for a bit. Ryche
  11. Did you lift the bolt handle up before pulling to the rear? Alot of people familiar with the Garrand forget this step and try to pull straight back without lifting the handle. If the case is stuck it coud also be something in the chamber is sticking the case tight. Try lifting the bolt handle and while pulling to the rear smartly smacking the butt of the rifle on some card board or a mat on the floor to avoid damaging the butt. If the case is just stuck this will usually get it to release. It also helps to shoot some CLP or other bore cleaner down the barrel to help loosen the stuck case. Ryche
  12. I'm with you Dash.... I'm not even sure where to start. Horrified but interested kinda like a train wreck...just can't look away Boss where did you find this???? Ryche
  13. Hey buddy i believe i have one for ya. shoot me a P.M. Ryche
  14. I have used a large binder clip before. with some tin snips and some bending, file, and grinding work you can make a passable one. Ryche
  15. Hey Tanker: There is a DROR front end on broker right now, a little over $400 I think. You might want to check it out. Its at $415 with no bids and 5 days to go. If you contact the seller he might be willing to go cheaper if it doesn't sell. Good luck buddy Ryche
