    Heck, lets just see some good old fashioned Bubba craftsmanship.

    But first, someone needs to explain to me what I'm looking at here......

    I can't figure it out, painted receiver, AK stock and AR grip. Maybe it's a transfomer??

    I know a fellow who barely has enough sense to pour urine out of a boot (barely). He's been calling his SKS a "wannabe AK" for as long as I've known him, and no amount of trying to talk some sense into him has changed it. If I didn't know any better, I'd say this joke of a painted SKS his.

    Sounds like one of my wife's uncles. He calls his Norinco SKS an "SK-47". Or, when he's in a hurry, his "SK".

    We are, but I'm still using their BST forum. I'm still trying to gathering funds for a new house downpayment so I still have stuff listed there. Once I've got my $ compiled I'm done with them!! I dont feel that bad though, I'm using them (kinda like they are me) and when I meet someone in person to do a deal (like I did last night) I make sure to tell them what I think about Crack Smoking Canadians and pass along this sites information. I'm kinda like a undercover CFF agent.:cool:

    For sale:
    Colt M4 5.56 LE carbine.
    Comes with the following:
    Vortex SSparc 2 with magnifier.
    Inforce WML 200 lumen light

    BCM Gunfighter ambidextrous charging handle
    MFT Minimalist battle stock
    BAD lever

    SKS rifles are always the whipping boy. Why someone felt the need to cut the barrel and front sight off and replace it with the bolt on front sight from a Hi Point rife, I don't know. But, it apparently makes it worth $500, so maybe I should cut mine up too.

    This looks totally legit and not like an ATF sting.

    Linda: Hello I saw your ad on armslist and I'm interested in your gun you're putting up for sale, I would like to proceed with the instant purchase immediately. Are you willing to ship ? or should i arrange for my FFL local mover agent from transportation of firearms in your area? I can email msg my FFL If you would want it . Please let me know which you prefer? Mind you i ll be paying for the shipping cost. Also the mode of payment will be in certified cashier check and please send me more pictures, final asking price and your mobile number and your full name with your home address to process the payment if you are willing to sell it to me. Thanks!

    Neither does "dolla". I don't think those combinations of letters qualify as words.

    I see that lots of people have difficulty understanding what 'investing' really is.
