As some of you know, I have a 9mm olympic arms AR for sale in the EE.

There have been several threads in the team forum lately about problems w/ the EE.

We've all read, and joked about, the 'preban' AR's offered for outrageous prices on the EE.

Well, some idiot just raised the bar.....instead of offering his preban for sale on the EE.....

He just offered to trade me a PREBAN LOWER for my 9mm AR.



Ummm.....

What the fuck is your problem?
The guy offered you an excellent deal on a preban for your 9mm.

Ask if he has any preban Black Talons.




Don't get me started on black talons. I watched a friend of mine spend a pile of money on those...pad so much for 'em that, 4 years later now, he's still carrying the same ones in his .45...they cost too much to shoot, he says.

I wonder if they feed?
I wonder if they're relaible at that age?
I wonder if they're half as good as current-generation defense ammo?

I just want to know why people edit out their prices with SOLD instead of leaving the price there. I like seeing how much stuff has sold for so I can gauge the market.

Yeah, Black Talons always seemed to feed ok in my weapons. But let's hope he hasn't rechambered the same round 100 times and has the bullet set-back 3/4 into the case!


I wonder if they're relaible at that age?


I've heard lots of talk about people experiencing "dead" primers in the old Black Talon amo that's been out there now for 10 or 12 years.

They'd be lucky to be half as good as the newer Winchester Ranger loads which are much improved over the old Black Talon design. The Ranger tends to offer very good expansion and does so consistently, even through heavy clothing. The Black Talon was horrible at expanding after penetrating clothing. I would also rate the Speer Gold Dot as being better, in general.

The Black Talon has been made into a "gee whiz" wonder bullet by people who don't know any better. There are mich better rounds on the market these days. Plus they are new and more likely to go bang than something that's been sitting around for 10, 11, 12, or 13 years.
