Follow up to my previous thread,
Lewis Arms rules. No one was there, I know that's not good for business, but heck, I liked it!
They had plenty of guns...amazing condition, he had 3x Kar98K's and 2x Garands, and 2x Gwher 43's, in immaculate condition(With prices to match!)
He said they were not for sale, private collection, but they had price tags on em.
He had one Mosin Nagant, which was 1943. I was surprised, at how amazing it looked. It appears he gets the cosmoline out for you, and refinishes / gets the dents out, as well as lubes the barrel and all that.
It also came with the Bayonet, and the little gear kit, everything!
VS Rileys, which was 149$, but Rileys were coated in Cosmoline still, the finish was gone when you took it off, they were full of dents, and some of the barrels had what appeared to be debris of some sort on them.
To my horror; my friend struck first and gun-jacked me though. He purchased it, even knowing I had intended to. Now now, I know, it's a business and stuff like that is fair, but...I dunno, I feel a little annoyed.
It's kinda like "Hey man, I'm going to buy xxx item tomorrow"
Then he goes over and buys it...
Just kinda a...ehh, move, I even offered to purchase it off him for the sale price + 20$, and he went on a rant about how it'd be a felony, that he can't sell the gun to me ec,t which is bull, because you can, people do it all the time, just do the papers over. Then he said "Oh, I don't know if they'll get another one in this good condition"
Kinda a prick about it, knowing that I wanted it and went with him that day to show him it. COnsidering he hadn't wanted one til then.
Guy said it'd be 1-2 months before he got more, but I think I can wait. Rileys, 20$ cheaper, but the condition of the guns...are so much worse.
The ones at Lewis Arms look as good as those videos / pictures you see of someone sanding them down and refinishing them. Look brand new, and I don't have to deal with Cosmoline, and it's only a 20$ premium? But it also comes with the gear + Bayonet, which Rileys does not, so that easily makes up for it.
Guy was also awesome and talked about the guns and you could tell he had a passion. I hear he was a former employee of Rileys, left, and started his own. I can see why, the state that Rileys is in these days.(Poorly)
