  1. Thanks for you offer, but I'm looking for a cash-only deal at this time.
  2. Hi - I received IM's from people expressing interest. I'm going to go down the line in the order received and if I don't hear from people (or they decline), I'll let you know. Thanks!
  3. Was there last week and the range fields were mostly dry. Just a little muddy at the entrances. It’s trap season now so I’m not likely to go back for a while. Glad conditions have improved.
  4. And what if an already gun owner just happens to get laid off? Following your logic, they should red-flag every person recently laid-off and confiscate their guns? Is that you Governor Murphy?
  5. It's tough when you have no history. Took me a while to get going there. Selling a commodity gun like a Glock or newer Browning seems easier than rarer or more unusual guns. Took me months to sell my Sako and I ended up practically giving it away. Is it auction or a fixed price? Hopefully you set a reserve to protect yourself. I'd also recommend allowing buyers to make an offer so you can gauge the market for your gun. If it's super collectable, you might want to try one of the auction houses that specialize in that sort of thing.
  6. Clearing out the ammo locker. I have about $240 worth of .243 Win ammo that I'll part with for a flat $100 for a face-to-face cash deal. Most are in the 95-100g range with some lighter. Willing to ship if you pick up the tab. Here's what is included: All NJ laws must be followed. Please contact me with any questions. Thanks! - Dave
  7. Interesting that you can order them for NJ without the binary trigger. Any NJ FFLs willing to accept one? Here's the FAQ on these. Interesting that factory ammo can maintain the degree of accuracy reported if they yaw and tumble just 15 feet past the muzzle. http://www.reformationfirearms.com/FAQ.html
  8. That's pretty cool. So...the next question will be - can it be suppressed without a tax stamp? I believe the Maxim 50 muzzleloader is suppressed and reportedly legal in all 50 states without a stamp because, technically, it's not a firearm.
  9. Generally, if it's priced right anything will sell. I've had my best luck with GunBroker auctions and found that older, out-of-production stuff does much better than current production. For example, I just sold a 25 year old S&W 22 for more than twice what I bought it for new and on the other hand, sold a like-new Sako rifle for half what I paid for it last year.
  10. Swizz - does the spring-loaded release move freely and completely out of the locking notch on the buffer tube or is it restricted? I have one where the stock isn't pinned, but the release is so that it cannot be moved.
  11. Assuming this was sold as a NJ-compliant model (from the factory and not done by a gunsmith/ffl) can you tell us who the manufacturer is? Someone probably has been down that road and could help. I only have one rifle that was sold with a NJ-compliant SKU from the factory from S&W and it was pinned in the fully extended position between the stock and the adjustment "rail" on the buffer tube. One easy-to-remove pin, on just one side (which I never touched, I swear). Aftermarket pinning could be anywhere. I have one that has the release latch pinned. There should be a special place in hell for anyone who epoxies a stock in place.
  12. I see your point, but the libs know a mag capacity restriction does nothing to save lives. They might actually prefer this gets national/SCOTUS attention coming into the 2020 election. And who knows what SCOTUS would do with wobbly kneed Roberts on the bench. It could be win-win for the Dems. If the CA ban is upheld, the libs could push for a nationwide ban. If the ban is tossed, they have another red-meat issue for their rabid base.
  13. That is sick. Nice job! I don't think it’s legal for those of us stuck in NJ to even look at something like that. (Deleting browser history...)
  14. Blame the Greenies on the left, who get to control you because they know better than you... “EPA regulations incentivize the use of [stop/start] technology because it has on-road fuel economy and greenhouse-gas benefits not fully captured on EPA’s fuel-economy tests,” a Ford spokesman said in an email. “In order to qualify for the incentives, [it] must be the predominant operating mode for the vehicle, such that the driver cannot permanently disable it.” That has not stopped some people from turning to the internet for ways to shut it off for good. In one example on YouTube, a young man plugs a trailer-light tester into the hitch receiver of a 2018 Ford F-150 to show viewers how to permanently latch an otherwise nonlatching stop/start system. In that case, the system won’t engage because the truck thinks it’s pulling a load. Incidentally, there are other scenarios in which the engine will not shut off, even when stop/start is engaged, such as if the steering wheel is being turned, the battery voltage is too low, or the air conditioning needs to keep running to maintain a comfortable cabin because of hot outside temperatures. Stop/start systems are otherwise accompanied by beefier batteries and starter motors to support the greater demands of the engine frequently cycling on and off.
  15. Correct me if I’m wrong, but we could do the same (hypothetically) if we had a DNJ case overthrow our ban and it was upheld by the 3rd? Probably more likely the CA case would make it to SCOTUS before we’d win a case here. Hell can only freeze over so many times.
  16. When I first read this, I had to check the calendar to make sure it wasn't April Fools. California? Incredible! I doubt we'll see any changes in PRNJ because of this - at least not in my life time. Still a win -- anywhere -- is a win.
  17. Yep. As much as a complete semi-auto ban is the left's fevered dream, they're more likely to continue to push for legislation that chips away at the 2A. I can see online ammo sales being prohibited in NJ very soon. And once all ammo sales are within the state, Gopher Phil can impose a tax on purchases very easily. More slush money for the corrupt Trenton mob bosses.
  18. I ordered mine on 3/11 and it came in the mail 3/21, so 10 days. I measured the gauge with two sets of calipers and the thickness is 0.035”. The gauge did not protrude above the bolt but was slightly below, which is consistent with my prior measurement of the recess depth for my gun being 0.041”.
  19. I just shipped another handgun by FedEx using Bud's ShipMyGun.com. I highly recommend that service. When I dropped off the package and declared it an unloaded handgun, the woman said, "Umm. Okay". I asked her what telling her that does as far as the package goes - any special handling or notation in their system? She said, "Nope - it's treated just like every overnight package, but you have to ship to an FFL and the gun has to be unloaded, no ammo in the package and no markings on the box indicating the contents." I asked if they lookup the address and match it to FFL addresses. She said "Nope - the system doesn't know it's a firearm and we have no idea who you're shipping it to." So basically, the ATF requires you to tell the common carrier - period. It's FedEx's rules that it must ship overnight. So if you ship ground or 2-day and the gun gets lost or stolen and you report it, it could be inferred that you didn't tell FedEx, otherwise they would have stopped you from sending it slower/cheaper. Yeah, you could play dumb and say, "I told the girl and she let it through" and that might cost someone their job or they could put it on you for violating the CFA (Commerce in Firearms and Ammo) statute, which is a felony. That said, for the $10 it might save me, I don't want to get jammed up or lose someone their job, so I comply with the "declare for no apparent reason" law.
  20. I invested in a good pair of boots and don’t really mind that much - I’m usually the only one there. Rarely another car in the lot. It’s never a problem getting a bench, so that’s a plus. No waiting to change flags. Maybe a few cars go to the back (LEOs at the active range?) but it’s usually deserted on weekdays. Funny, I get emails all the time from all the other ranges I use. Does SJSC send anything out? I can’t recall ever seeing anything about range status or events.
  21. I was there (the only one there until I packed up) from 10-12. 100 is better than before. Left side is drying, right side submerged. 50 still looks flooded but I didn’t use it. Just got my renewal notice in the mail. Will give it some thought before writing a check.
  22. Interesting, and that makes sense that they went with a thickness closest to the upper end of the 0.043-0.051" range. I haven't gotten my gauge yet, bit I'm fairly certain my bolt is slightly shallow. Mine is the Performance Center model and it was made in Nov of 2018. I measured mine multiple times and keep coming up with 0.041" I wonder what depth causes the autofire? I saw one guy on the S&W forum that claimed his depth was 0.036" and he did not have any issues, maybe because of his ammo? I think the SAAMI spec for the cartridge rim is 0.036" to 0.043".
