Any listings/inventory of new stuff for sale?
Yes, new items and restock are being accomplished every day.


We are also listing a LOT of books, they rarely hit the front page though.

Well I just ordered ANOTHER tripod from APEX and my God those guys are fast I think it shipped the same day. Now if I can only move as fast as Mike Duke and get it restored life will be good.

Thank you for the kind words.
The people working in the mail order work center are really putting in
the effort to get everything packed and out within 24 hours.
We don't work weekends, so the first day of the work week is a real hard
push for them to get all the orders picked from the previous Friday
afternoon on.
The people that usually restock work on order fulfillment on Mondays.
Speaking of which, the WH5 people pitched in pulling product orders last
Tuesday due to the long holiday weekend!
Friday they also asked for a pick-up of restock and new products to be
brought over to Stone.
That seems to be a weekly activity now.

Hey Richard

Do you have any knobs for the elevation mechanism on a yugo M53 tripod?
Sorry, no parts for the tripods.
I think Greg at Allegheny Arsenal used to have parts for them.

Richard, nice video one doesn't alway realize what goes into getting that part that you order. Also makes you think twice about the thought of "that part is expensive". There is a lot of labor to get that part to ones mail box.

I enjoyed the video too. I would love to see how you deal with your box of Misc gun parts! At the last Knob Creek I went to, spring of 2019, I was able to get my best finds out of the boxes of Misc parts at Sarco (who know what the parts were for) and US Armament corp (who did not know what the parts were to in general). I am sure you have a ton of parts like this... I can just imagine having bought out Don Bell and Omega... I know you list many individual parts on the website as you figure them out. Frankly I check your new items page almost daily and have bought a bunch. However what do you do with the items you can't figure out...?

Thank you for the compliments about the WH5 video.
It was a few days worth of work from my marketing/advertising people.
You also see some of what goes on in WH4, which is the smaller area where everything gets handled.
It is across the main hallway from WH5.
We plan to make another video showing the operation here at WH1 on Stone Avenue.
This location on Stone is where the main offices, Customer Service and the mail order operations are located.

The other question about boxes of odd stuff?
That would be the "one-off" items.
We have a picking area just for them.
We do our best to photograph and describe each and every product, to include the research we do.
A few times we have posted a picture of something on FaceBook when we could not find any references.
That usually works as a last resort.
As we become more organized and get caught up on product listings it becomes a LOT more difficult to find material to take to KCR or SAR as once it goes up for sale we cannot just take it off the shelf!
We have barely touched the material from "OMEGA", "Springfield Sporters", and "Ohio Ordnance Works" but have made a good effort with all the parts from the Gary Cole estate.
The people at WH5 are focusing on material that continues to arrive and the material we had stowed away from years ago that we can now access and handle.

Thats great news... something to look forward to! I did not hear you guys bought some or all of OOW... very interesting. They had lots of good stuff too.

As usual Friday I received the RESTOCK report to review.
I noted that we have restocked the Browning 1919 barrel jackets as well as quite a few other items throughout the web site:


Some were actually disabled because they had been OOS for so long.

I have a mystery!
It is a steel box magazine that we are unable to identify.
I have about 25 of them.
Not sure if these came out of OMEGA or Springfield Sporters.
If I had to guess I would say these are for 7.62 NATO.
I found no markings on the examples I examined.
Anyone have knowledge of these?

Today I spotted a wood crate stenciled "V.M.G. 7.62"
There are paper labels indicating a shipping address of "Pretoria"
The bad news is the crate is nearly empty, about 1/2 of the wood inserts remain.
I have never seen one like this before.

Might want to review the price points for the barrel jackets, there are several vendors now making new jackets for $85-$100.

Thank you, I am aware of that.
Personally I believe original USGI parts are more interesting than current manufacture items.
New made is really nice to have available when the USGI original supply is exhausted.
It is the $39 barrel jacket offering that always sells out of stock first!
I did add tier pricing to the NOS 1919 jackets for the customers who want to put a couple away for the day they are no longer available.

I still have hope that someone knows what these magazines are!
I have had a number of suggestions posted on FaceBook, many are close, but so far these are still a mystery.

Richard you should certainly bring one to the SAR show someone there will know. I am actually surprised no one here does with our knowledge base.

Looks like a gent on FaceBook nailed down the magazine.
It is for the SiG-510 in 7.62 NATO.

SIG-510 manual

He even advised of the average retail price!
