Re: Tornado Kit Finally Comes To Life!!

Everyone took it in the shorts to some extent in the deal; Jen and all of us, I eventually got most of two kits...but like so many things all seems trivial now. Could have done a better purchase elsewhere at the time, so what...it worked out over time as good as it worked out. I felt sorry for Jen w...

Re: Belgian Commercial Kit For Sale - $1500 SOLD

The real point of the kit I sold...is no refinish required to build a "commercial" clone with all Belgian parts exactly as they were imported to this country through Steyr, Howco or GSI. This one more apropo to the Steyr version or the early GSI due to the use of the long style hider. Barrel all ass...

Re: Anybody got a real 50.61?

If it came through one of the commercial U.S. importers....there should be no serial on the barrel or lower. If those are serialed items on the one you are viewing it's bogus. 50.63 and others have matched serials on bolt, carrier and receiver only. Nothing that shows outward appearance should be se...

...and your could pick up truly excellent kits $350, I gave in and got bit in the deal as a late joiner to the group @ $250 shipped.

Re: Belgian Commercial Kit For Sale - $1500 SOLD

Sorry Sternikov; I have another to follow later. Better kit/as good, but without the GSI/Steyr long hider (a later kit/sample with the combo device). Let me see if/what I can accomplish I'm "challenged" currently. I'll drop you a note direct before listing for sale.

Belgian Commercial Kit For Sale - $1500 SOLD

Kit is 95%+ and original finish - price is firm. I reserve the right to sell elsewhere and to any one I choose, there are those here on site I wouldn't deal with if I were starving to death; instead of simply dying. PM me or hit my email - reply here will likely be ignored; it's also listed elsewher...

Matched serials SAC gun about what you've read for valuation as condition. SAC guns are all, nonetheless post ban...were it proper pre89 it'd be clearly engraved with Armscorp of America on the receiver right side; or National Arms Billerica, MD and thus worth quite a bit more.

Re: NOS Type 3 FN receiver

Really no need to be put out about personal decisions and such....I only meant to point out the Imbel when built every bit as good and nice finish as opposed the Belgian and much easier to make dollars and sense of in the longer view. Folks fall all over themselves and yes, we may have all done so. ...

Re: NOS Type 3 FN receiver

I've got a 97% 50.63 kit, should have been where you started - with a bunch of Belgian kit parts on-hand. You don't like my view of things, but truth is the Imbels are finished nicer than Belgian as type IIIs, that can't be avoided. I could lay out a nice 50.00 model kit as well...just not ready at ...

Re: Loose Rat Tail Pin?

It's a simple repair provided you've obtained a new rivet and doesn't need pressed in, just make sure the spring and rat tail are correctly in place, insert the rivet and back it up with some kind of appropriate bench block on the head side, then spread the far side with a punch. Once in place it's ...

Re: NOS Type 3 FN receiver

Stick around a bit pal. It's no better than an imported Imbel and the only real perceived value difference you are running on is in the engraving/roll stamping and name on the side. Period. Buy em' all...no diff.

Good on you then you must have laid a plan. Makes an expensive but uncollectible shooter/keeper. I've done one or two myself....but I held the parts before buying in for the whole ride.

Re: NOS Type 3 FN receiver

You wasted some real dollars on a whim, without a kit and a nice kit all Belgian you'll never value up to the level needed to justify the acquisition. Congrats.

I can hardly type much more than that even.
