    Cost to sandblast and Parkerize Uzi receiver

    After you're done, just cook some bacon in a cookie tray and parchment paper.

    Uzi Bag?

    I have two original vintage cases and they are silkscreened.

    Cost to sandblast and Parkerize Uzi receiver

    You might be surprised at how fair Sam at PS is. I suggest you call them.

    Uzi Bag?

    I read somewhere that he had health issues and wasn't actively producing these cases. There is one on Gunbroker now. Expect to pay about $300-$325 for one. That's the FMV.

    At the risk of having him reappear like Beatlejuice by evoking his name, our old friend BatteringRam NIB bought his mint unfired GI / Vector and had to ship it off to one or two gunsmiths before he got his out-of-spec gun to work. That was a fun story to take in. My GI / Vector was purchased...

    Your experience with a GI Vector is not the same as my experience with my GI Vector. Nether experience is invalid or meaningless, and extrapolation is hard to do with any certainty. However, I think it is fair to say much has been written and is known about issues GI had with warped receivers...

    Which Lage Upper

    In my opinion, this would be the best option to help with the sale. The difference between these two uppers are pretty minimal and if a buyer REALLY wanted one over the other, why not use that as leverage?

    FN FNC Bolt

    I messaged him 3-4 months ago and bought some custom M1 rear sight covers….so he’s alive and well.

    FN FNC Bolt

    No way to divine if the bidder is real or a shill but this is in line with my observations about availability and price of parts for the FNC's. That's why I bought the nice semi at ~$3K for spares. In hindsight, I probably should have kept both, but knowing I would never fire either, sold at a...

    FN FNC Bolt

    What would you sell that bolt for now?

    FN FNC Bolt

    There are many discontinued german-made guns, like Sigs and HK's that are getting crazy expensive and generally no (or very few) milled replacement parts are being reproduced in the US. Some folks are making springs but that's about it. Replacement parts other than that can only be obtained...

    FN FNC Bolt

    At one time I owned a FA FNC and complete semiauto just for spare parts. Honestly, once I learned that the only parts available in the US would be from salvaged guns and VERY expensive, I figured I would never shoot either and opted to just sell them both together as a package. There is...

    Walther UZI .22LR Tactical Rimfire Replica Rifle

    Agreed. Out-of-production items is a warning sign. CZ sites suffer the same disease.

    It was both. The GM barrel didn't have the same more rounded profile on the outer edge of the barrel in the breech end. The bolt would glance off that more square edge and slow it down enough that I would get light strikes all the time, all ammo. So in all probability the trunnion or receiver...

    Last gun I bought from Ruben there was no sales tax. That amounts to ~$1,600 in my state. Gunbroker will charge it. And he will actually answer the phone and your questions.

    In no way is this a 'deal'. Plenty more fish in the sea. See what Midwest Tactical has. In a month you'll end up buying an equal gun for $thousands less. Even Ruben is probably cheaper. You might also want to find a better LGS; yours is overtly mercenary and probably playing you if they are...

    There used to be a VERY active member here who insisted everything he bought was 'NIB'...and he paid a premium for a NIB uzi like this that wouldn't run, and it ended up spending a long time and $$$ being worked on to make it run. One that runs and can be easily reparked for $150 or so is in my...

    Assuming $2000 worth of mags and 45 kit, that's somewhere between $6,000-$9,000 more than the latest sold GI / Vector guns sold on Gunbroker. In my opinion NOT a bargain and likely not going anywhere soon. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/990560987 https://www.gunbroker.com/item/992088359 $9500...

    My experience with mine was that it ran fine with the factory barrel, wouldn't run anything with a new Green Mountain barrel....probably because either the trunnion was welded in slightly tilted or the receiver was slightly warped. Some unknown percentage of GI/Vectors have this issue. But...
