I'll be there only on Thursday.

However, signed copies of The FAL Primer: the Collector's Guide to the FN FAL and SLR Rifles will be available at table A13 while they last.

I just read that the effects of Hurricane Michael are not going to impact the weather at Knob Creek.
That is good news!
We still have a 60% chance of rain on Wednesday and Sunday.
So it may be a bit wet during set up and pack up.

The Sarco Cuban kit doesnít have a triangle.

Sarco has l2 bocks for The enterprising guy who can repair them. fuuuun?

A few G1 front ends and smattering of other stuff. Saw big box of mags didnít ask price.

Century has PAP kits for the AK guys but not many. Uzi kits at Numrich. One 1919 kit for $1150 others much more. Allegheny has mg34 barrels for $80.

I assume the VAC Vickers kit sold. Surprised the semi M60 and M37 did not.
1919a4 kits also did not all sell which is odd.

GSKA reminder I got the BNZ 41 kit for $850.

That's just cruel...

The Vickers kit was still there Friday when we left...I think the turnoff might be the availability of tripods....maybe... ETA..I think the Maxim kit/sokolov must have sold though as it was removed from gunbroker over the weekend even though it seemed to be overpriced by about $1k.

Speaking of tripods I did pick up a really nice FN 360 Mag58 pod....anyone needing a British M240 360 tripod now? ....I think I might have a tripod addiction problem forming.

The Vickers kit, I heard, was still there at closing. Too bad he didn't take the $2k I offered him on Thursday. Can't blame him though, it should have sold for the $2350 he was asking.

I guess Wolf's MG34 kit, minus bipod and kinda beat, Izzy stock, did sell, asking was $1200 IIRC. I guess if you have to have one, it was OK.

The M1 Carbine night vision setup in factory box was pretty cool at $1200, I've only seen one other. Hope it went to a good home.

The Browning M37 did not sell, too bad. That's a rare model with the double feed and well made.

Forgot to get a MG15 drum on the way out the door, darn it.

Now degreasing the MG42 kit. Suppose I'd better sell some M53 kits now.
