On August 25, 2010, I posted this ad.
KilgoreTrout77 immediately responded by followup post, IM, and email to say he'd take the pre-ban magazines.
The post is visible in that thread and I'd ask for a lock to preserve content. The IM is here. The email was basically identical. I can post it as needed.
I'll take the 4 pre-ban mags your offering for $40 plus fees.
I take it they're in good condition and functional?
Let me know how to get the funds to you.
(his real name and email address redacted)
I replied via email on 8-26:
Discreet paypal to (my paypal address) for $41.40 (to cover fees) or USPS MO for $40 to "My name and address." I'll ship within one business day of receiving payment.
They have finish wear but no dents, and function just fine. I've run them loaded to 28 with no feeding problems at all. I have not even loaded to 30, never mind firing them, since installing the MP followers. (With the green followers -which I don't have any more- they'd feed okay but were hard to seat under a closed bolt.)
Anyway, they're yours upon receipt of payment. I'll mark the ads SPF tonight.
I then marked the ad SPF. Then I saw a minor discrepancy between the email address in the "Reply-to" line in his email (to which I'd replied) and the one in the email's signature. I sent the same reply to the second address and via IM on 8-28.
I have had no further contact.
On 9-1-10 I sent an IM:
You said you'd take them and then disappeared.
Do you still want them?
I need an answer by noon MDT Thursday, 9-2-10.
Again, no response.
ETA: 9-6-10 at about 0906 MDT, I sent him a link to this thread via IM.
