Default Friday closing report/ Met Mr. John Beard again

There were 60 rifles at closing with strong numbers of WRA FG/RG, IHC SG and SA six million. Store was restocked during the day.

Should be WRA SG and SA 6 million added before opening.

Someone purchased the Collector HRA, congratulations to them, beautiful unissued rifle....

There has been some confusion about my post about availability of bayonets. BAYONETS are available at the store. The bayonet display at store is to show customers what type bayonets are available. If a customer wants a bayonet then advise the store staff and they will get you one from their storage area.

Personal note. Recently I saw a USMC SA 1903 that was posted by Pmangelos on the Forum and after a lot of arm twisting he sold it to me. If you would like to see photos he posted on 11/7/2017 @0958, I would repost but still no luck on posting. I had the opportunity to meet John Beard again today, after he had given me a field class on how to identify a USMC 1903 rifle about a month ago, to inspect my rifle. He stated ďthat if he had ever seen a USMC 1903 rifle this was oneĒ. That was nice to hear. Thanks to Paul for selling me the rifle and John for being the gentleman he is and taking the time to inspect the rifle and for all the work he does for the CMP to inspect and service their 1903a3 rifles..

Good luck on your searches.

Lastly is $850 a fair price for this gun.

Thanks, Paul

If you can't choose one out of a dozen or so, you may as well mail order one and save the 10% tax at the store. Unless they are in such bad shape you might reject it when they bring it out?

Default Saturday opening report

There were 15 plus customers at opening and the racks were full. Had a chance to visit with customers before opening, itís always nice to meet new folks at the store. At 8:30 the store had sold 15 rifles, primarily WRAís and were still busy.

Strong number of WRA SG,FG and RG were present. There were several with WRA barrels. Didnít see any WRA cartouches.

IHC SG, 12, many with LMR correct dated barrels, no IHC stocks.

SA 6 million, 11

Rob30.06 picked up that beautiful SA 5.79xxxx Collector grade that I have mentioned in prior post. There are currently 2 SA and a HRA Collector grade which all appear to be unissued NOS rifles.... Rob was deep into the crowd and Iím sure he will provide some detail reporting on what was found in the racks this morning by fellow customers. I always look forward to his store visit report.

Good luck on your searches.

Thanks again for the reports and congrats Rob30.06.

Any ideas where this current batch of WRA's may have come from?

Bob
