  1. AK style 7.62x54R?

    @jpm , @42! I bought last one in the shop. Sorry they are now out. Most of the SVT 40s were in the 2 - 2,2K range. The SVT 38 went out to an auction house.
  2. AK style 7.62x54R?

    One of he local shops had 4 SVTs all Finish capture. Here are three of the better one's. The bottom one is a SVT-38, rare in the US from what I understand. I was able to grab the top one after two other people staked a claim and ended up passing. The top one has the AVT (Automatic) stock...

  5. Moving heavy machine?? Metal Lathe

    Plus 1 on Toupin rigging. Professional, smart and dependable. I have used them in the past to move granite inspection tables in our Incoming Quality Control group. Watching them move surface places taught me a lot about moving heavy objects. Small vertical movements, good dolly and think...

  9. Vintage Ammo Collection

    The pistol was made in 1897 and looks very modern for it's time. For those who count one round was gifted out to a local collector. Best recent auction price per round was $27.50 per round. Tough call what the box itself would be worth.

  11. Bought a Beretta M9

    Only handled them Infantry OBC, not a fan. M1911s were issue early in career and I got out before the 9's ever reached the state National Guard units. That being said this week I got a Beretta M1951 which is a forerunner to the M9. For the right price I would pick up a M9A3 to sit next to my...
  12. Vintage Ammo Collection

    You can goggle each box/vintage ammo and check out auctions. Also Pete's vintage gun and ammo is a good resource. My Mrs does this for two different shops here in Eastern Mass. We just had some 7.8mm Bergmann valued about 1.5K. A total of 40 rounds of ammo we priced out the other day. The Mrs...

Went smoothly, but surprised the staff didn't run them thru the safeties, dis-assemblies etc for a SR-22. I showed them the ropes and...
