OTHER GENERAL NOTES TO BEAR IN MIND PLEASE:
These and other small items of equipment detailed can range from easy to just about impossible to find.
In addition EVERYTHING IS costing a lot more to buy these days. That DOES include things for sale here!
BEFORE you fall over from the ‘shock’ PLEASE bear in mind the time it takes to DO THE FOLLOWING: Source. Clean. Possibly repair or replace parts. Prepare. Label. Photograph. Down load. Cut. Crop and make good images. Along with everything else involved to actually detail them here for sale on the EMmA Custom Rifles Web Site.
Where I have MULTIPLE EXAMPLES of the same item in stock it is ‘First come First served’. As in first to buy gets the best conditioned piece. ALL WILL be in working order unless specified. The only REAL difference being cosmetic / aesthetics. Anything beyond ‘half way reasonable’ and I WILL discuss before accepting payment.
They generally go nowhere even close to covering the time, effort and expenses involved. (The main reason you see very few, if any, other dealers bothering with things like this).
I often say there are far too many places selling guns and not enough GUN SHOPS. I stand by that statement. Listing things like this should convey I do this for the love of the sport and to HELP customers. I DO also expect to see a small return for the effort.
Prices not only reflect the condition of each item, good or not so good (in the odd case). They also reflect the rarity and WORK involved. I consider them all excellent value for what they are. IF YOU DO NOT THEN PLEASE
All I ask is that you bear these few factors in mind BEFORE asking about ‘best prices’ or discounts etc.
MY ‘BEST’ prices would be PLUS an additional £1000 AND MORE so think before you ask!
Also please note that when I detail a measurement they are as close I can reasonably tell. Dovetails are measured at their WIDEST point.
