  1. Sent my Sig in for Sig Service Plan rebuild

    It came back today, took less than 2 weeks. It's a West German Sig 228 from 1990 that I wanted to have upgraded with night sights to match my 239. I figure it's probably due for springs as well after 24 years. Came back in a plastic bag all full of oil, I'll probably take it apart and...
  2. I bought a safe today!

    I don't know why but I'm really excited! It's just a safe, but after spending weeks and weeks reading through forums and watching youtube videos I can't wait to see it installed in the house. There was a common theme through all the forums and various articles and that was buy bigger than you...
  3. Mags shipping from Brownells

    Just a data point for anyone else that placed orders. I ordered a 10 pack of 30rd Pmags on Dec 17th and just received an email notification that my order shipped today. If you're waiting for mags on backorder, and you ordered near Dec 17th then you may see them soon. :)
  4. Need a Generator Mechanic

    I recently moved into a house with a fixed generator that runs on propane. It looks to be 10-12+ years old and says "Elliott Power Systems" with a model MPSG12 on the side. I can't find a serial number and I've called 4-5 places and can't find anyone who will come out to look at the thing...
  5. Anyone ordered a Browning Safe?

    I'm going to purchase a new safe pretty soon and I'm planning to have them deliver it to the edge of my driveway with a lift gate truck. Does anyone have pictures or have you seen what these things come bolted to? I assume it's a pallet of some kind? My plan would be to rent a pallet jack so...
  6. I want a 1911

    I think it's time to add a C&R 1911 to the collection. I just started reading/learning what to look for and the prices are all over the place. I want a good looking shooter and I'd like the frame and slide to match but the internal parts and mag can be from something else. RR, Ithaca, Colt...
  7. Went Hiking in NH and saw this sign....

    I was hiking at Bear Brook State Park and came across this sign after walking down a trail for 1 hour. Being the law abiding citizen that I am, what the hell! Does anyone know the legality of this, I'm carrying a pistol not a rifle but it doesn't seem to matter.
  8. DUI - Car Insurance in Mass

    My brother has a DUI on his record and I'm trying to help him get all his shit together to get his license back. His insurance carrier is currently Liberty Mutual which has a policy that automatically removes theft and collision coverage from your policy as soon as the DUI hits. They will...
  9. C&R Address change?

    I submitted this about 6 weeks ago and haven't heard anything. Does anyone have a contact at the ATF I can call to check and see if they actually received my form? Thanks -Mike
  10. Anyone work at Ford dealer?

    I going to buy my Mom a Fusion Hybrid and wouldn't mind helping out a feller NES member if they can save me 3 hours of "Oh we can't do it for that price". I prefer New Hampshire but I'll buy in Mass too. Let me know. [smile]
  11. Moving to NH from Mass - What about my current LTC?

    I'm moving to NH next month and I'm trying to figure out what I need to do about my Mass LTC. I plan to file for a Non-Resident license immediately but I'm not sure about the procedure for turning in my current license. Do I just need to notify my local PD that I moved and provide them with my...
  12. C&R .357 Magnum Revolvers?

    I'd like to add a 357 Magnum Revolver to my collection. Out of curiosity are there any C&R eligible guns out there in the 5-700ish range that would be good shooters? What should I start looking for? I want to shoot 38 Specials through it as well. [grin]
  13. Who speaks Eastern European? ;)

    Resorting some ammo and I forgot I had this at the bottom but I forget what it is. [shocked] Is this 7.62x54R or 7.62x25? (In the tin)

  16. Bought a Chinese Type 53

    Just showed up from UPS. 1953 with most of the blueing gone and its mixed and matched and the Bayonet is missing. Should make a decent shooter though, I haven't seen one of these in person. Any idea if the stock is right? Looks like it has an 02 (Hungarian?) in it but I'm not sure. I'd...
  17. C&R Bound Book

    I have been keeping all my stuff in a spreadsheet then printing it out and putting in a binder. It works but I was cruising through Amazon last week and saw a book titled "Curio and Relics FFL 03 Bound Book" for $9.99. I decided to order it and see what it looks like, its pretty good and I...

    What does this go to? Is this correct for a 1931 MN 91/30? Thanks!
  19. Israeli Lend Lease M1 Carbines?

    Did this happen? I have seen an auction on Gunboards go around a few times in which the auction states "Many M1s were given as lend-lease or sold to our allies both during the wars and after." I have a Bavarian Marked M1 but I never heard about Israel getting some. I didn't find much info...
  20. Guns in India - What are these?

    I flew into Delhi last night for work and I hired a car to take me around to some of the sights today. The Commonwealth games are going on and there are police everywhere! Lots of people carrying around AK47 style rifles. I managed to get few pictures, can you identify what these are? Thought...
