Default C&R Purchases

I will never buy another gun at any of the auction sites. Over the past 5 years I have bought guns at both GB and Auction Arms and have been burned on the butt.

I bid on a 1917 Enfield and had the high bid. Because the auction ended on a National holiday the bid on the no reserve auction was very low and I thought I had a real bargain. I forwarded a signed copy of my C&R to the seller along with a Postal Money Order. The seller returned the MO and said the reason was they couldn't "read the expiration date on the C&R." I never did get the gun

My father gave me a shotgun for my 14th birthday in 1956 it was a Model 20 JC Higgins. That gun was stolen while I was overseas in 1969. I found one at one of the auction sites and bought it. Although it was listed as in "excellent" condition and the outside looked great, when I actually got it the working parts were all rusted and the gun could not fire.

I have bought C&R pieces from J&G, AIM, SOG, and Century Arms and have never had a single problem. Just my .02.

one thing to keep in mind is that most of these site will not allow you purchase anything unless they already have a copy of your FFL on file, also Century Arms took over a month to get my FFL in their system. However check the site because some will not keep a copy on file and istruct you to send one with your order. AIM was the only one I have so far come across that allowed me to fax my 03, most will only take a faxxed 01.

Centerfire systems accepted a fax copy for a pistol I purchased from them, but most require a hard copy on hand.

I'm thinking about getting a carbine from CMP this spring (tax refund). Have not really considered SOG so far.

Looks like they still have both rack and service grade available.

You don't need any ffl to buy from the CMP. The requirements are here.
