Depending on the date code this is super easy.
Yeah, I've thought about it... I have a BI with no block. I know the paddle is more accurate to a MP5. But, I think the drop-ins are a bit over $100 and I've found I don't really have a problem reaching around, with my left hand, for mag changes. I'll probably end up with one eventually, though.

I'm actually having more trouble fighting off the temptation to get a vertical foregrip and B&T stock for it!

Does this sound like a scam to anyone?

I have a M1A SOCOM listed on armslist and was contacted by someone that's interested. Once I responded that it was still available, the interested party responded with this email:

Quote:
I appreciate your quick response concerning my inquiry. I'm Charles Eckert, a chief deputy at Tarrant County Sheriff's Office here in TEXAS, I am quite comfortable with the price and the condition of the item . I will be adding $100 to the purchase price for shipping if you're willing to ship ... I want you to hold it for me before any other interested person. Please provide your

Name to be on the check........

Address the check will be delivered to.........

Phone number............(so i can text you)

Final asking price.............

so that I can send your payment. I'll be making payment through certified cashier's check. It will take 2 -3 days for the payment to get to you...As for delivery, I can make arrangements for the pick-up after you have received payment if you don't want to ship ,If this meets your approval.Here's my dealer’s FFL License # 5-74-259-01-1F-07903 , he’s my childhood friend, I can email you a copy of the FFL dealer's license copy along with my ID
2 things give me pause. One, him saying that he can arrange pickup if I'm not willing to ship. To me, that is bordering on a straw man purchase. Also, the email has a lot of information in it, almost too much information. It reads like the internet scams you hear about, especially with the "name on check...." "address to send check..." etc, but without the broken English.

Now, I verified the FLL # via the ATF's FFL EZ check and it comes back to a legit gun shop in Texas. Also, he is willing to send me a copy of the FFL license (which I would get anyway) and a copy of his ID. These 2 things make this sound like a legit transaction.

I am about to call the gun shop (Montechema Firearms in Boerne, Texas) to see if someone there knows a Charles Eckert

Well, I called the gun shop and was informed that this was a scam. They are aware that their FFL number is being used.

Nope, nope, nope. He may have given you correct information but once he receives the gun, he can bounce the check or dispute it. These scams keep changing, it's hard to keep up. The only way I would ship it is if it sold on gunbroker or something similar. Face to face, cash only. At an FFL for transfer if it makes you feel better, or is legally required.

The length of the email was the first thing that made me think this was a scam. The formatting was the second. But with a legit FFL # and offering to send me a copy of an ID made it sound more legit. Good thing I'm wired to investigate (being a Forensic Scientist / Crime Scene Investigator) and didn't jump at the opportunity to sell the gun.

Ordered an Aero Precision M4E1 lower today.

Want to build a "precision" rifle and my buddy at work was trying to talk me into .224 Valkyrie or .223 wylde.

.224 ammo is just expensive and I'm not planning on doing 1000+ yard shooting.

.224 is stupid. my friend that is a very competent reloader tried it and its just too much work to get it to shoot good. just way too finicky with coal and charge weight, etc. even factory ammo was all over the place. if you need more distance than a .223 can provide, dont bother with the niche rounds and go right to the large frame guns like 6.5 cm or .308.

that was kind of my impression on it. 6.8 would be fun.

I'm not doing super long shooting. Mostly want something for plinking and Coyote hunting.

Probably going to order a new svi widebody (2011). Custom serial #’s are free. Any ideas? It has to be less than 13 characters and include at least 1 number. I dont want anything that will hurt my ability to sell it down the road or be too trendy so “thicc 1911” is out. Even though its good.

Have you checked out Atlas or Cheely? Lot less wait and just as much gun. Same goes for Brazos.

Any thoughts on the Smith and Wesson m&p shield 9mm vs the Glock 43 9mm? I shot both and think the m&p shield is the better sub compact carry gun. There is a lot of recoil on the Glock. The Glock does have a better feel in your hand but I guess if you are concealed carry feel of the fire arm is probably the last thing on your mind. The m&p shield is currently$249 from a lot of outlets where the Glock is $449 or $499. I don't see the Glock being worth it just because it's more expensive. I think the m&p is a much better weapon overall.

Cheeley isnt taking orders and the owner of atlas is a loudmouth douche. Svi wait is only 6-8 months and you can always sell them for what you paid if you dont configure something too stupid. I dont think many other customs retain value like a svi.

Nothing wrong with the Shield but my personal preference is the 43 due to grip length, plus I'm kind of a Glock whore...but the grip length is a big deal to me. The 43 definitely wants to torque in your hand when shooting but is more concealable compared to the Shield. I don't think you can go wrong with a Shield, though. My most recent purchase, which will go into the carry rotation as long as it proves to be reliable, is a Sig P365 XL. I bought a P365 grip module and it carries so tiny that way. I have put 300 various rounds through it so far, and no issues.

Well hopefully soon I'll have my 07ffl with SOT. Apps been filed and check cashed.....now the waiting game.

I'll be converting my garage, at least part of it into my "manufacturing" space. My goal is to have a top notch working man's rifle/pistol at an affordable price. Then have some high end guns for the discerning customer.

This has been a dream of mine for quite some time now, lots of money saved and effort has been put into this so far.

Interesting! I have a P365 with extended 12 round mag. Feels great in my hand. Heck, even with the standard 10 round it feels nice, just no pinky love.

Thanks for the response. Isn't the shield slimmer than the Glock? I shot both with the standard magazines and felt the Glock didn't give me as much control due to a shorter grip. I don't think I would carry either with an extended mag to make it more concealable but might end up carrying a spare magazine with larger capacity. I think the Glock definitely feels better and feels more well made. I'm still on the fence but at the $249 price range getting the shield is still a no-brainer so maybe I'll get both of them lol. I think with enough practice the recoil on the 43 would be something you get used to.

so, going to have an infinity built. going stainless because they charge $675 to dlc a carbon steel pistol so stainless is a bit cheaper in the end since i dont want blued. what do you guys think of the xcelerator serrations? will they stand the test of time or will they look stupid in 15 years? pistol should look mostly like these 2 but with a silver trigger, threaded barrel, no panel cut on the slide, extended trigger guard (same as these but opened up for less material at the bottom corner), a more rounded top of the slide and no sv logo in the hammer.
