Lately I have been selling a few things on eBay, last night I listed a Springfield M1A stock and today my ad was cancelled and I am on a one day suspension for selling assault weapons parts. In my ad I did not mention that it was a GI M14 stock, right now on eBay there are all kinds of M1A/M14 parts, stocks, barrels, bolts, stocks, etc.... for sale.

I am wondering why these other sellers are not getting their ads pulled for selling assault rifle parts? I am thinking maybe some other seller turned me in.

I am finished with eBay after this.

What is an assault weapon?


But seriously it's a piece of shapped wood. Not the entire rifle.

eBay deserves to go out of business. I will not give them another cent of my money.

Paypal too.

Ebay sucks period.

I have a customer who owns an antique shop and he has had a lot of problems with Ebay pulling adds. The last add he had pulled was for some WWII german dinner plates they had the nazi symbol on them so Ebay pulled the add. They are jackasses.

I agree. Unfortunately, there isn't a gun friendly alternative. I have several things I would like to get rid of but I refuse to use Ebay, so all the stuff is still sitting around the house.

I am not talking about gun stuff. I can never bring myself to sell those.

Yes, I have used yardsales and such, but not much luck with specialized items (noise cancelling aviation headsets, Radio controlled stuff, etc.). You just can't get the same money out of these types of things as you can on ebay.

Has anyone else had trouble getting on to ebay today? The site hasn't worked all morning and it's the first big listing I've had in months.

Same exact thing happened to me with the same stock. I emailed ebay and they said it was against their policy to sell that stock, when i brought it to their attention that there were 14 M14/M1a stocks currently being auctioned they simply replied that they cannot keep up with all the illegal auctions and that i should report any when i see a violation. I wrote back with a simple fuck off. I sell a lot on ebay, they are big time liberals but its a good source of side income for me so i put up with their shit. Just sign up to gunbroker and sell it there or relist the stock on ebay under a similar title as other stocks being sold. McM

This is what I got for selling a Ruger stock, A FUCKING PIECE OF WOOD!!! Everyone at EGay can lick the squeezin's from my hairy arse as far as I'm concerned. Nevermind the fact that there were plenty of their so-called "Power Sellers" out there pushing identical items with no problems whatsoever...For what it's worth, I got this in January and I am still apparently banned. But then I guess that "banned" is a badge of honor around here.

We have taken this action only after careful consideration of the history of violations on your account. We have reviewed carefully each offense that led to this decision and verified that the correct action was taken. Today, we removed the following listings:

Its all in how your title reads. If you list a "Factory Colt AR-15 4X20 scope" .Your ad will get yanked faster then you can say " Chuck Norris". If you list it as "Colt 4X20 scope" it will probably not. Its all in the search words. I listed a FNAL 10 round magazine and it got yanked. It was pulled jst after I listed it. Also you were probably ratted out. There is a member over on the FAL Files who really gets his rocks off by playing Ebay rat bitch. He has admitted to it several times, and is proud of it.

here is an example, to be left cold.

So let me get this straight - you listed an item that you KNEW was a violation of eBay policies, they cancel the auction, and now you're whining about it? eBay should cancel your account for stupidity...
