OK, not my auction, but is an interesting find... an original Guide Lamp Div. M3 Grease Gun receiver.

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=188461146







AFAIK, this is a machine gun receiver (as per ATF explanation); the receiver is coming from Spain (another big no-no, IMHO), so as far as I know, this cannot be imported unless is cut up into parts (as per ATF regs). Discuss.

ETA: ALso, the field mod (bar welded over mag release location) gives me the impression that this particular M3 was a British "Lend Lease" weapon, since the Brits did this to them as a safety measure... I've seen another Grease Gun like this on Autoweapons' website with the same mod...

Out of all the WW2 subguns I've handled; three stand out for me; the Pappa Shaw (Ppsh-41), the M1A1 Thompson and theM3 Grease Gun; handled one back in 93, when tankers still used them. Personally, I prefer the older M3, being that it has the crank, so you don;t have to stick your finger into the bolt, specially after several mags worth of firing.

damn I love the plumbers delight!!!!!!!!! I wish I could find a grease gun.

I do bet that is a lend lease gun.

Out of all of the subguns I have ever used I still think the grease gun is the most fun .45 I have ever shot.
but an M10 with a lage upper is a close second.
