Last day for prebans and preban prices.

Are you going to change your name to postsunset?

Dunno... Hmm...

Not a chance, I'm saving my money for the party on the 14th.
Besides, I have plenty of jerky and kettle corn saved up.

I'll probably go on Sunday. You never know what kind of last minute deals you'll find.
Link Posted: 9/8/2004 7:35:34 PM EST
I'll have a table, as usual.

Got any IDF slingy wingies? Are you coming to GARRYOWENFEST? If so Bring some IDF SLINGS, Please. I could use another couple.

Trying to justify the show this weekend. Only thing I want is a new SIG 226 with new 15 round mags in the box. I am probably going to have to order one to avoid all the old (postban)stock. It is tough holding on to $700 cash and nobody has what I want.

Obviously I will be a few days too early for this purchase. The best excuse I can come up with is to see if the gougers are still asking $2000 for pre-ban Colt AR15's

No mags.

Plenty of IDF Slings. Don't think I'll be at the LoveFest, however.

Yeah, WTF. Buddy and I will be there Saturday afternoon. Will give me a chance to look for the SIG I want, even if it will have the "low-cap magazines". If someone manages to sell me one it will be at a great price because I wont spend more than a dollar for 10 round magazines.

Looks like Sunday for me too.

Wher're all the YHM parts?

Probably not be able to resist getting another stripped lower either . . .
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 3:44:01 PM EST
I'll take the zero on this show.

Maybe next time...

When I was setting up today, saw a guy with DPMS post-ban rifles on the table..."sale price" of $749.

Thought about offering $600 with the phrase, "come Tuesday, nobody will want these...".

Another guy had a pre-ban Bushy w/Surefire forearm light and front hand grip for....$1,850! LOL

No, I've used up my disposable income for the next month or so.

Will you take $1,700? I just cannot wait till Monday!

Ok, so who went today and what did you get/get rid of?

Went to the show.......not worth it. No great deals other than ammo(Miwall, J&G)....and they are at every show.

Saw a few well used Colt "Preban" rifles(6601 and a 6530) for the low low price of $2400-2600.

Hopefully those dealers didn't sell a buck's worth of crap today-- maybe it'll loosen 'em up for me tomorrow.

Is the guy there that usually sells stripped Eagle Arms AR15 and AR10 lowers?

if youre referring to Mike Detty, I think he may be there. Ill wait for someone else to respond for sure. He' is a GREAT guy to deal with
Link Posted: 9/11/2004 8:17:24 PM EST
yep, Mike Detty was there. Had DPMS, and Eagle Arms stripped receivers. I almost got one.
I was hoping Ameetek Arms would be there so i could get one of his lowers. Ameetek was not showing today, and neither were the guys from Cav Arms. I was bummed, the only reason i went was to get an Ameetek receiver, and some Cav Arms furniture.l
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 2:56:33 PM EST
I went and screwed myself over in the process. I went in search of an EOTech, and for some freakin unknown reason (even to me), I passed a brand new EOTech up for some AimPoint Replica. Cost me a very pretty penny. Worked great and looked good when I bought it. So I thought I'd better check it to make sure it all worked (after I bought it, ). The rheostat wouldn't work properly. So I traded it for another that checked out. Now, 24 hours later, it has the same problem. The guy told me it has a lifetime warranty, which I think I will be using at the next gun show he's at. I'll be getting all of my money back, and I will be buying that EOTech no matter what. I still can't figure out why I made such a dumba** mistake.

... Ha! Got some (20) round M16 USGI mags today for $13 a pop. Nice to see prices coming down.
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 4:10:04 PM EST
I didn't go, but I'm going to CAVFEST!
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 4:12:17 PM EST
I ended up getting an Eagle Arms receiver from Mike. I let him talk me into an Armalite CAR stock for $60 too. Not very racey but it looks good and works.

Nope, didn't see any YHM stuff. Oh well, plenty of dealers hear anyway. Might save up a few bucks first too.

Looks like we continually missed each other. I was there from opening to the bitter end. Mission semi-accomplished...

10/22 folding stock
10/22 AGI video
10/22 magazine speed loader
(Gee, could Mike be contemplating a build..?)
5lb bag of walnut media
Nifty l'il book on the old original Maxim suppressors
Two original SKS 10-round mags (who else has noticed that the aftermarket ones are absolute crap?)

I got to see preban AR's going for anywhere between $795 for this REALLY old one-- never even heard of the name before-- to the $2,500.00 M4geries that One-Eyed Jack has. AR mags were anywhere from $13 to $50 each. 10/22 25+ round bannana mags were anywhere from $20 to $100 each; those nifty teardrop drums were $75 - $300. I really hope someone makes a copy of the old Stanford/AMT thompson-style 10/22 drums; I'm NOT going to pay $400 for one.

The only disappointment was not finding a solid used stainless 10/22. I found some new ones at $225-$240, one used for $200 (new is $205 at wally world!), and got to hear that AZ Shooters world sold two yeaterday for $139.95 each.

One memorable quote from some guy wandering around with an AR...

Me: Hey, how much..?
Guy: $1,800.00. It's a Green label Colt.
Me: (sounding positive for the guy's benefit) Ah, okay-- good luck with it..!
Guy: You're not interested..?
Me: Nah, the ban's going away and...
Guy: ...goddamnit, that's just terrible. The best price I'm getting for this rifle is $600 from some jerk dealer. Damn expiration.
(guy wanders off)

Yeeeeah. I'm taking a bath on one of my prebans-- but I'll gladly take a personal financial bath to have some national Constitutional rights restored.

All in all though, still a good show.

Mike
