We have spent the past 2 days unloading the first of the semi-trailer loads of material.
The second truck for today has yet to show!
The last of them arrives on Saturday.
We have shared a couple of pictures on FaceBook.





That second image is all pallets of Israeli 1919 links (not all the pallets are pictured)

I will start listing some of this material today on the APEX web site.
For you guys with cut M2 tripods, I will have parts (legs & heads)
For the people looking for intact M2 tripods, pintle's and T&E's I will be listing them for sale.

This whole shipment is like a "time capsule" as it has been in storage here in the USA for a good many years.
Yes, someone is very happy to have their building emptied and cleaned up, ready for use again!

Unless you are the outside of the USA, or use a "proxy server" I would suggest that you clear your browser cache.
That seems to resolve most connection issues.

Lol Richard I’ll bet your guys in Receiving aren’t as excited as you!
That is an excellent assumption!
It's 20:30 (local mountain time) and my Operations Manager is out in the yard still moving pallets.
I am in the office listing product on the web site, keeping an eye on the forklift via the security monitors.
Our day started at 07:30.
Today's second delivery never arrived, so Friday is going to be truly crushing!
Unloading 3 53ft semi-trailers into the yard, then figure out where to stack it all.
Oh, we are expecting snow too.
Saturday is the last of the trucks.

On a good note, today I stumbled across a wood mortar crate of OOW supplied 1919 parts.
Inside was top plates, bottom plates, rear sight mounts and a few trunnions.
So, we can do some restocking next week!

Wait till you guys find out what is I n them :cool: We will talk soon Richard and many thanks for the box I got today.
Glad to know that box arrived with its contents still inside!
Jeff and a few of my guys are back east doing the loading, and the rest of us are here for the daily task of filling orders and trying to store away all these pallets.
It should be easier once the 8,000 ft extension is built on the warehouse.

That is GREAT news Richard I will be watching the site for the new additions. Sounds like you all have a busy weekend ahead and I can't wait to see what else is in the mix.

Oh come on... blacking out the tags is not fair! :)

I look forward to see what all you find! Please keep us updated. Always looking for some good stuff! You find any Cetme Ameli parts kits, let me know!

I sure do miss the old days of interesting, well priced parts kits coming in. Some other Parts kits suppliers just sent out an email with "Very rare, limited Quantity" parts kits... they were M240 parts kits... Awesome... I would be interested in one... oh wait, $5k a parts kit... better just keep saving for the next MG. I mean I know the time of $400 1919a4 parts kits is probably gone for ever... but man! The last parts kits that came in that I was excited about was your Cetme Parts kits. I bought a bunch and wish I had bought more. I just bought another set of Enosa NV that you sold for +50% over your price and consider it a good deal. Oh well, if only I was a bit older and richer in the golden age of parts kits. I was a poor kid just out of college. I was luckier than most at least!

I will be relisting 1919 front trunnions sometime next week.
We have to sort them and get pictures.

CETME Ameli's,, I thought I already related the story on these.
My source (who deals with surplus out of Spain) has been importing for a long time.
I asked about the Ameli's and received this response.
The arms broker who had to receive the Ameli's (as part of a deal for the guns he really wanted) didn't want the liability and "hit" on the firm's reputation that those guns had.
So, he had the Ameli's destroyed, all of them.
Remember there are International Arms brokers who do not deal with the USA and have no time for things like "parts kits"
They supply armies and broker big shipments.
Selling known defective guns was just not good business, and the entity who had to dispose of them for the Spanish Gov't was also in a bind.
So, don't expect to ever see CETME Ameli's in any number as kits.
There are European standard de-acts, but they are useless as kits.

Richard if you find any milled USGI trunnions with numbers stamped on the underside of them I am calling dibbs now! We will chat soon but we have to keep one back for Sam because I promised to help him.

Congrats on the great score Richard. Your killing me here though. Just when I say I’m not buy anything else until the Ferret is finished you go and post something like this!!! Oh well it’s only money. I can always make more money but I can’t make more time. Anxiously awaiting you to unveil all you have in those boxes. I bet I could build a nice cabin in the hills of Kentucky with those shipping crates alone and then I could save money when I went to the Knob Creek show. :rofl:
Good to see APEX and you are doing well. :thumbup:

Thank you for the words of encouragement.
We have been working on this deal for just about 1 year.
While its nice to finally have it landing at APEX, I just wish the trucks were not delivering on Saturday and Sunday!

I am logged in and working now.
Probably your state has implemented a filter to block the purchase of gun parts!


Actually, try clearing the browser cache.

I was just out in the yard, this truck had a box of AN-M2 barrels.
A lot more UZI parts too.
