Default 12 06 report

I was at the NS the AM. Obtained good assistance from staff and fellow shoppers. I arrived about 0915 and left about 2 hours later. A fellow decided he did not want a couple of packs of SAW ammo so another fellow and I each took one. I received the last pack - no tracer. So for ammo shoppers, you are out of luck until the next truck. There were several service grades when I arrived. When I left they were down to about 6. Many shoppers were picking up 5-10 rifles. Most or all still had nice GI wood. Typical mixmasters but nice. The early birds got some nice rifles as I saw 2 or 3 uncut oprods during their check-out, nice winchester trigger groups and several WWII barrel/receiver groups. There were still lots of FG rifles with good WWII wood on them.. I believe all the wwii SA cartouched stocks were gone, but many still had very nice wwii arsenal refuild wood.

The field grades were still plentiful and most of them had nice GI wood, not too dented etc. ME tE on avg 3-3 but lots in the 2-4 range. I passed on 1942 rifle with a 1944 barrel that looked very nice. The barrel had not been refinished .. or did not appear to have been.

Only HRA field grades .. some has nice wood - did not really look at them .. was looking for an LMR barrel. There were two but the rifles were so so.

Still lots of Kimbers... an older gentleman was looking at them and bought 3 I think.. he placed 4 he did not buy on the end of the row that were beautiful.. walnut with no cuts, etc... there may have been more without cuts but I did not look any further.. most of the cut rifles I looked at were hardly noticeable. All appeared from a quick glance to be rust free and most of them still had the anti-rust cardboard stick still in the barrel.

I was there for ammo... they still have lots of 30-06... I did not look at the other rifles but they still have lots of garand drill, specials, barreled receivers, etc.

They may have more service grades to put out this afternoon or tonight but I would call before you go .. as one guy was quite irate because he was told yesterday that they had lots of them and drove a long way ... only to get there at 1000 and have most of them gone..... he should have been there at 0830 when the racks were full.. out here...

A great report, thanks!

I got up early and was headed up to the Store when that little angel on my shoulder reminded me that I had just spent some money at a gun auction and that I had already stockpiled 5.56 on my last two North Store trips. So, I went to the office, instead. (BOO)

It was neat to read that some of the rifles are coming in with WWII vintage parts again - we went through a long dry spell during the summer months. I still managed to buy some rifles, though, so no compaints.

Only problem is if they turn around and flip them. Most probably aren't but I'm sure a handful do.

Oh well
