One main question . Is it blued steel and shiny brass or parked ? Blued is worth a lot more due to looks and prep time involved .

From what I understand it is an OOW built gun, not just a side plate.

The 2 belt loaders should be worth an extra $1600.00 +, I would think, but I am new to this game.

I would think the new guy is right. Welcome to the forum Dan.

As of yet no. He was supposed to send them over last night but nothing just yet. Hopefully he send them over soon.

Hopefully you receive a pic that shows the rear sight leaf well. Depending on when this was built, it might be one I supplied. Can't help but be curious! :D

I'm still kicking myself in the nuts for selling my Allied Armament 1917, and it only cost me $2,650.00!
At least I don't have another son who suddenly decides mid term that he wants to double major in
college!

There is an AA 1917A1 at the KCR shop, and I look every year to see if it's still there. It also has one of my rear sights on it, as Allied used them on most of their water cooled builds. They have it priced pretty high, so I think they don't want to sell it, lol. I have to check next month and see, but I think it was in the $5k range at least. Actually, today that's not a bad price, depending on which grade of OBS jacket it has. Can't recall that detail.

Price on water cooled?

Let me know what you decide for a price as I may be interested. Been thinking about a water cooled belt fed as it would look good on my gun mount.

Of course now you tell me! I ran out of there after I paid @$10 for a coffee!
