    So I'm starting a new job soon and would like to start acquiring firearms rather than selling them, but I've got debts to pay and bills to sort out from the lean times first.

    However I realized I've got a bunch of stuff listed here scattered all over the place so I'm making a wanted thread to put it all in one place.

    "What are you after you magnificent beast?" I hear you say:

    22 bolt action or single shot (even the compact ones for kids)

    Budget hunting rifle

    Surprise me!

    Here's what I've got to trade. It's nothing too fancy so I suspect anyone wanted to shed Hitler's gold plated Kimbers blessed by JMBs ghost and with grips made from JFKs shinbones and engraved by John Wayne and Ronnie James Dio is going to find me a few buckaroos short. Inexpensive is the watchword. I mean unless you really feel like getting jobbed!

    I can probably scrounge up some pocketknives and such to fill out a gap if need be.

    TLDR: madly optimistic English dude wants to trade assorted stuffs for guns.

    I probably have a Ruger MKII and a couple mags that I could store at your place for a few months if you just want to get back to fun shooting. Blue, short taper barrel, value say $250 if you lose it.

    Right now all I have is a rear sight lol

    That leaves a few parts, although I'd rather get a complete upper than bits I don't have the tools.

    I’ll dig through the spare parts bin as well and see what I can contribute. I think I have a handguard, a few A2 grips, and misc pins and such.

    Also, I’m not shooting much rimfire right now so if you want to borrow back the GSG-22 I bought from you for a while to plink around with, I’m cool with that. The wife and I are trying to plan a trip to Mebane soon cuz daddy needs some new ASICS. Could meet you around that area when we go.

    Thanks mate. I appreciate it!

    I've still got my 1022, I'm not spending as much time out in the cold until I can shake this mean ass cough, but when I do I've got a 22 to shoot :). Last thing I need is to get sick right before this new job starts

    Ok cool. As long as you’ve got something plink around with.

    I’ll dig around in the parts bin to see what I can help with in your AR building endeavor. No one that leaves the tyranny of the UK and moves here should be without the freedom of having at least one Stoner.

    Thanks! was always more of an AK man but when your choices are diminished it's best to be practical and the AR is about as practical as it gets.

    Holy cow dude. That's a box of pretty much everything but the receivers, so not too much left to chase down!

    I said it in PM but thank you so much!

    Due to not shooting it enough to warrant keeping, I've been considering selling my Pre-Remington Marlin 795 to make back a bit of cash. I can make a rifle plus extra magazines offer for you if that's something you'd want to buy. :)

    I also have a 1" cantilever optics mount for AR, if that's something you'd be interested in buying as well.

    Well I was looking for trades, stuff I listed above but yeah the 795 is a decent little rifle. I'd have to see the mount but may also be of interest.

    Bump. Cash sales are also fine, since I had a big bite taken out my last until paycheque fund.
