Another way to look at it: your buddy paid $10 to get an unpapered AR!

I mentioned this to him and tried to get more out of him. But he did sell me a house for a great price.

The rollmark doesn't look like LMT. Lousy picture so hard to tell for sure.

I thought the same thing. I think their claim is it's made by them (LMT) not that it is actually LMT. I'll have to look at it again.

Edit: it appears their claim is that they were made by LMT for East Coast... That explains the different markings.

I contacted LMT and these were in fact produced by them for ecgc. My order is in for 3.

Why was the shipping on these. I'll probably pick one up. My FFL only charges $20 for a transfer. That's a pretty good deal.

My FFL charged $20 for the 1st and $5 each for the other 2... Give me a start to some different builds.
