Default south store visit on 20th

went to south store on the 20th and was the worst selection i have seen in all my trips.not much of any thing at all.i got a correct grade SA only because of the ser#5881111.i also got a model 513T and 416 and these 2 were the best of the worst but will try to make them shine.real rusty 15 rd mags,slings were nice if you picked through them,16'' bayonets look ok but most had the black color,krags were rough but there was one or two with nice stocks and bores that might clean up,couple of chrome 03A3,one SC that i passed on real quick,chrome krags,M1 field grades were sad,M1D's and C's i did not look at,lot of WRA's out but they looked sad also with no WRA parts i saw.there were other rifles out but only one or two and they did not impress my so i forgot the maker (22's).so my advise is not to go until someone tells us its better

Default fld grade

5-6 SA and few more HRA.leon was not there and seems like when he is not there it is not the same but there could be nothing to put out either.WRA all over the place but may not be moving due to price and condition would be my guess.never seen it this bad!
