So, you just shafted your buddy to the tune of £350?

anyway, looking over their inventory, there are some items i'd like to get and i was wondering if anyone has any particularly happy experiences with board dealers. i'm interested in the arms throw mount, 6v turbohead conversion, the high output lamp assembly, and the dual switch (xm07).

thanks for any assist!



Just curious, you are mounting a wepaon light on a single shot/stright pull action AR rfile?

It sounds to me like his buddy made off with $150.00 of profit because he sold a weapon light and accessories that were paid for by the US tax payers and issued during RFI. Sounds like a great thing to be bragging about on the internet. I hope you enjoy your light, glad I could help pay for it for you.

I could be wrong, and he could just be happy to take a $3-400 hit in order to hook up his friend.

It's Great Britain. I doubt his friend has any use for a weapons light.

OK, so it's Brit taxpayers who got screwed. You're probably correct though that the "friend" cobbed the thing so he could peddle it to his buddy. Oh well; all that proves is that there are fast buck artists in the UK as well as the USA.

insert pic looter with surefire here

If your friend stole it from the french nobody would care

I'm not sure if their was any intention to make money. He said he made his friend take the $150. Not trying to make everything sound legal here, but I think it was more of a gift thing.

Its sounds to me like people crying have never been in the military. The amount of gear/ kit that is traded is larger than you would think.

Either way it isn't like the guy posting needs to be jumped all over.



hardcorps1775- Good for you, I traded kit with a bunch of your guys during my desert time, and never had any issues. Its more common that people here would think evidently.
