Re: Buying guns online?
Buying surplus guns usually works out OK, just don't get your expectations too high. Those are milsurps, which means that most were dragged and kicked around by a couple of generations of recruits in maybe two or three countries. The word "mint" does not apply.
Buying from individuals on-line, sight unseen, is a crapshoot. Most sellers are honest and will provide pics and a good descriptions. But I have seen so much junk peddled that way that my inclination is to advise against doing that kind of business at all. When the item is not as advertised, there is little recourse; the seller hides behind the anonymity of "the net" and the buyer is stuck. Sure, you can spend ten thousand dollars in legal fees to sue over a $500 gun, but you probably won't and the crooks count on that.
