Well I was let down...some parts I was looking for werent there. Lots of way overpriced guns. Sold an AK and started looking at milled Norincos MAKS and SKS-Ds. Finally found a new unfired SKS-D that takes the AK mags $300 out the door in a private sale. Guy wanted $375 and I got him down to $300. The only other unfired SKS-D was $400 out the door so I got a good deal for an unfired one. I have the regular SKS paratrooper thats still unfired I have had for years. I might go back tomorrow...not sure yet.

OK, just added the Model "M" to the collection. Both guns are unfired. Picked up the Norinco Model "M" friday at a local gun show....$300 out the door private sale. I need the regular stock for the "M" like the regular paratrooper, they did make them for the "M" model. Well I think its time to shoot these babies. Snowing here now so maybe next weekend I'll heat em up.

No they didnt. I put a slant brake on the regular trooper, I'll probably put one on the new one also. On the regular trooper I put the slant brake and perforated top handguard. Still unfired tho. Damn its snowing right now so that kills going shooting for me LOL.

I promised myself I will never go to one of these shows again. Each time they become a bigger and bigger let down.

I went on Saturday morning (worst time to go of course), spent about 2-3 hours searching every inch of every table. Found about 10 Romi wasr10's (zzzZZzz), a few Norincos (Mak90, AK hunter, Milled rec'r national match, etc.), & 1 nice Polytech. Overall everything is insanely overpriced.

Friday, my 2000 rounds of 7.62 shipped from cabelas priced at $107 w/ shipping each. When the guy at the Ammo booth told me they had them for $190 a 1000 I just laughed at him and walked away.

In the end I realized that everything I saw that I was interested in I have seen it on the net for allot less. AK-74 mags...cheapest I saw them at the show was $14, I quickly came home and ordered them from Copes for $5.99 each. I only found one booth with AK kits, the guy had 2 yugo kits sitting under his table. $180 and they looked to be in pretty sad condition.

Ive never heard so many people handing out extremely incorrect and BAD info it’s just unreal.

When some Joe-Blow walks up to you and opens a gym back w/ a Thompson in pieces and says "Do you know how to make this fully auto? You want to buy it??!?!" you know its time to leave.

Ive been going to that show for about 15 years when it was The Shotgun News Show. I was a dealer and set up there for about 10 years. I know most those people and I know who to stay away from and who to buy from. Never buy a gun from a dealer...to many walk ins and private sales.
