Cool.

I know someone that needs a
roller kit, one size over.

Never owned one but they appear to be a robust design.

Thanks!

Atlantic Firearms had some rebuild kits and roller sets but they got swamped; I appreciate the lead.

Robert is a cool guy and all his stuff is pristine in the Az desert.

It he says it is VG condition it is likely unissued.

Atlantic is a cool sight but they have always been a bit difficult to deal with because they are moving so much volume.

I mess with some of that stuff for my own collection.

Prices have doubled in the last year or so.

What price can you place on Freedom, however?

I just like to get the correct parts for historical purposes, while they are available.

So when Robert has that stuff cheap I stack it deep.

That’s okay with some of us in Texas. I think we have quite enough new stuff moving into Texas to hold us for more than a little bit.

Actually I wish folks in blue states would stick around and fight.

It would be cool to see Colt in Tx but I hate for them to give up in the blue states.

This hurts the blue states more than staying and fighting, due to it being a more effective fighting tactic. The more of their precious sources of tax revenue vote with their feet like this, the quicker those states will suffer due to their excessive debt.

I know what you mean, but I think this is part of new lines being drawn. Sometimes you have to fall back and regroup before continuing the fight.

I wish Governor Martinez and some of our NM leaders would try to get a few gun manufactures to come here. We have great gun laws, and plenty of people looking for work.

That is certainly one company that appropriately belongs in Texas.

I guess I keep thinking that if enough people and businesses leave those blue states someone on those states would finally wake up, figure out why and do something about it.

Probably just wishful thinking and the sign of an addled old brain that refuses to give up hope.

But if they all leave, who will fight there?

Soon we find ourselves isolated.

Good for them. This is the way a company can fight back - pick up and leave high taxed, gun grabbing states and head to a friendlier climate. When, oh when, are the people in the blue states going to wake up- or are they?

From what I heard about malloys wonder bill that will stop all school shootings is that a manufacturer will have no guide lines on a new product until it is finished, money spent and ready for market, and then and only then will it be reviewed and with great probability classified as an assault weapon and banned. Great for business connecticut

Already saw it. Those guys bought the G3 and MP5 designs and tooling from H&K, tweaked the designs, and now H&K says the product is better than they ever made it. They'll even make the magazines in the USA, keeping costs down.

I just hope the feds don't lean on their financial backers. They're still a legitimate business, even if the feds and Bloomberg want them destroyed.

Still, any day the gun-grabbers and their states lose business, and tax revenues, is a good day. :)

It is more likely that South Carolina will stay ‘red’ a lot longer that Texas.
