M1A/M14 Shim set - Group Service
 
** Top posted for one reason, two sets per person at the price shown below, if you want more they are 6.50 per set plus shipping.

I had someone ask for many multiple sets and they were a commercial entity.... :(

I started this to help people, but feel some are taking advantage. And only one person as I recall added some extra green as a donation.

Given that the above is now the norm *******

-----
I hate paying TOO much for things, cheap eh maybe, I have been called worse - :)

So after searching around I found a source of shims based on the data in the other thread for $ 0.38 a shim shipped.

A set of five shim(s) from .003, .005, .007, .010, .020 will be $ 1.90 plus the cost of an envelope and 2x stamp.

That is the raw cost of material and shipping, why pay ten bucks plus ?!

So if you are interested you can PM me for an address where to send your SASE and $ 1.90 to and I can send off a set.

Oh, BTW if you care to drop an extra buck or two, when all is said and done, I will send that to the CMP as a donation :)

I am making nothing on this and I just hate paying A WAY LOT MORE FOR STUFF than need be...... :D So my frugality is your gain....LOL

I do not want to do this piece meal either, so if we can get a commitment of (25) I can do it all at once.



------------------


------------------

UPDATE (Round 3? ):


If anyone is interested I will be able to put together the following as a set:

(3) .003 Shims
(2) .007 Shims

This will make a total of a .023 Total shim thickness.

What I have on hand will be able to make (15) total sets. Same deal applies to cost and SASE's etc. Slots are taken as listed below:

Hi Bill,

The only way that this is cost effective for everyone is if it is done in blocks of (25).......

If there is more interest we can do another 25 set......but we shall see....

Topkick 12-17-2015 02:45 PM

If you make another run, I'll take six sets

Nickjc 12-17-2015 02:52 PM

OK What the heck......round two....see post number 2 for count.....

nickg 12-17-2015 09:40 PM
